Flyin by

The new challenge at Addicted To Stamps is to stamp your background.  I dug around in my stash and found this background stamp from CTMH.  It's huge and works perfectly for a card background.  I paired it up with the plane and sentiment from another stamp set.  I love the way this looks with the blue, tan and brown.  Makes a perfect masculine card.

Card Details:
Mapped Background stamp from CTMH
On Display Stamp set from My Time Made Easy
Ink: Rich Cocoa
Martha Stewart border punch
Spellbinders scalloped circle die

Princess card

This is my first card I made using an stamp I colored with distress inks instead of copics.  I am rather pleased with how she turned out.  I do need to do a lot of practicing though.
This is my DT card for Simply Magnolia challenge.  The challenge theme is to use a charm.  I had this crown charm that paired up nicely with this Tilda stamp.  You still have lots of time to join us in this challenge.

Card Details:
Tilda in cotton dress from Magnolia Stamps
Distress inks
la la land heart doily border die
Magnolia Doohickey heart die
Magnolia Doohickey fence die
Corner leaf from Storybook Cricut cartridge

Christmas card

Here is my mid month reminder project for Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Extra Challenge.  The challenges are always anything Christmas goes!  
It is already the middle of September so that means our Christmas cards need to be mailed in less than 3 months!  Are you ready?  I have about a dozen cards left to make so I am feeling good about my holiday card preparations.
This stamp is from Magnolia Stamps.  I have colored it with Distress Inks.  I'm still learning and need lots of practice with the inks but I do love the way this one turned out.

Card Details:
Stamp: Magnolia Stamps
Distress Inks
Corner leaf from Storybook Cricut cartridge
Gina Marie Designs oval die
La La Land banner die.

Thank You Cards

I needed more thank you cards so I made a bunch of this simple design.  I made 16 of them and of course have used them all.  I guess I will be making another batch of thank you cards soon.

Have A Tail Waggin' Good Day!

Took a break from cards to make this cute tag.  This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments.  We are sponsored by Ike's Art.  I used the image Malteese 1 for my project.  
This cute dog looks just like my dog, Isabella (Izzy). However, my dog is a Malshi (part Malteese and part Shih Tzu). 

Here's my Izzy:

Christmas Card

It's September 1st so that means a new challenge starts at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra!
The challenges are always Anything Christmas Goes.  Participating in the challenge each month is a great way to get your Christmas cards done on time.  I recently looked through my stash of cards and I am nearing the end of the cards I need to make.  Yippee!! Of course, I will probably start the Thank you cards that need to be done for the holidays so I will still get to play with my Christmas and winter stamps.
Anyway, this is my DT card for this month.  I used Rottweiler Trio Blocks from Bugaboo Stamps.  I cut them apart and added the sentiment to create the square.  To make the dogs festive for the holidays I cut them each a Santa hat using the Winnie The Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge. It's a simple card but fun.   This one will go to our dog groomer.  My little Malshi visits her each month for a spa day and a trim.
