Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

Hello there!
Today I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's October Blog Hop.
Love this inspiration clip...
I took my inspiration from the fall theme...love the cold weather and changing leaves.
I used PTI's stamp set, Meadow Greens. I inked the leaf stamp up with some distress oxide inks in shades fossilized amber, mowed lawn, ripe persimmon, and barn door.
I used Leaf Prints Die and die cut the leaf from black cardstock and gold embossed the sentiment with Wow embossing powder. I distressed the leaf edges with white ink and added some gold thread. For a finishing touch I added some stickles glitter glue to the stamped leaves and adhered some rainstones.

Thanks for peeking!
I'm also adding this to CAS on Friday/ Sunday Challenge #144

CDD Troll Party

Hello there!
Michelle here!
We’re having a troll party on the Craftin' Desert Divas Blog and you’re all invited!!!! My card today displays a previous troll set, Mermaid Trolls , in a different way.
I paired it up with one of the newest stamp set, Merry Florals for a sweet Christmas card!
I stamped my images with black ink and colored them with Copic Markers.
I created my bokeh background using distress oxide inks in candied apple, picked raspberry and mowed lawn, and splashed the background with some water. Than I added some white dots in different sizes.
Tip: To add the white dots I make my own stencil using different size circle dies.
Tip: Create your own frame using two dies that fit inside one another! One that cuts the outside, the other cuts inside.
Stamp your sentiments, assemble your card, and add your finishing touches. Lately I’ve been adding stickles glitter glue to everything!

Merry Wishes

Hello there!
Just a quick post to share a card I created for 
I may have gone overboard. I kept hearing my mother's voice telling me, "Less is more"...
Well, NOT today!!!!
I started off by inking up the background. I used distress oxides in spun sugar, picked raspberry, seedless preserves, and black soot. Than I added a few splashes of water and than some splashes of white paint.
I die cut the snowflakes using Lawn Fawn's  Mini Snowflakes Dies. I adhered some glitter from Recollections. I inked up some leftover cardstock with spun sugar and seedless preserves inks than die cut the ornaments. I used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Ornaments Dies.

I stamped the ornaments with Lawn Fawn's Tiny Tag Sayings. I adhered more glitter to the edge of the ornaments and toppers.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!!!

Just popping in to share a card with you!
I'm using the color palette from My Favorite Things


I used this adorable stamp set from My Favorite Things, Tweet Holidays.


I used Copic Markers to color the birds. I embossed the sentiment.


I added stickles to the fuzzy pom-poms and fir trim, and scattered some sequins.
