Season’s Greetings Winter Window

The Challange Ribbon copy




It is time for the new challenge in both Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (using Kraft paper) and My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #199.

I made a winter window scene looking at the snowy  hills.  I use three layers of foam tape around the edge of the window because I did use tape behind the first mountain so it did not blend into the whiteness.  I cut the foam myself, but next time  I will cut foam from that fun foam and add a sticky back to it.  That way I can use the die and cut out the inner windows.    AAAAHHHHHH  next time!!!!  LOL  I used glossy accents on the trees and used the rock candy glitter to give it a snowy look.  Then I added some fake snow that can be moved about with a simple shake of the card.   I really like this new Fun Stampers Journey ink pads in Whipped Cream and Butter Cream.  It goes on soooooo smooth.   LOVE it!  However you have to order it from a rep instead of a store.

Trying my hand at another Make it Monday card.   This time Dawn showed us Dry Embossing over Heat Embossing.  I have a lot of the Papertrey Ink Impression Plates and rarely use them….   I whipped out the holly leave ones and decided to use this one




It is a little hard to see the embossing, so here is a close up

Trying my hand at another sketch from My Favorite Things!   This is sketch #192 and I decided I really wanted to do something with gold and I originally thought I would do a card with bokeh but when I pulled out the Bokeh Builder stamp set I really liked the saying.  I also had this beautiful paper set called Market Street from My Minds Eye!   It was a match made in heaven.  Or at least a match made in my craft room!!!!

Sorry if my picture is a tad bit fuzzy…I took the picture from my ipad, too darn lazy to go get my camera!!!!






Thanks for looking at my creations!!!!!

Halloween Chalkboard

September 7th, 2014 klwade Posted in Cardmaking | No Comments »



I thought for fun I would do another MIM card.   I wanted to use the technique I learned from stamp a faire by using some sticky foam to create my own stamp from a die.    I must really like this technique.


You will have to forgive my use of mist and the moon.  I just wanted to to feel like Halloween!!!   LOL





I used the Papertrey Ink Candy Corn Collage die to make the foam stamp.   It is really easy, just run the die thru your die cut machine using that fun foam you can find at Walmart or Michaels.   I then adhered it to a sticky piece of clear card stock and removed the parts that were not needed.  Then using Papertrey Inks Fresh Snow ink, I stamped it on the chalkboard paper.  To make them look more like candy corn, I used my intense pencils to color in the candy colors.

Everything is Better with Coffee

I have always watched the Make it Monday series on Papertrey Ink but have never participated.  Coming off the heels of the Stamp-a-Faire challenge (and because it actually forced me to organize and clean my scrap room) I decided to try the challenge.

I am not into school stuff…I only have fur kids, but I have seen cool chalkboards at coffee houses.





Hope you enjoy!!!!
