Cheers - Pumpkin Spice - AHSC 443

Hello! Today I am back with another project from my Pumpkin Spice workshop and that I created for the AHSC Design Team. I had so much fun playing with these papers, I am a total sucker for all things fall....except Pumpkin and Pumpkin flavours! But I do love the feel, the colours, the sense of change all of those things!

When I saw this stamp set I could not wait to get it and play with it. For this one I used my water colour pencils to colour it in, I need to up my skills with the water colour pencils so I forced myself to use them and practice some shading, I think it came out ok.  For an added touch on the whipped cream I added clear shimmer brush, it is hard to see in the picture but it is there!

Merry & Bright - Holly & Ivy - H2H

Hello! Happy fall to you! The temperatures are changing and we are seeing the leaves starting to change and I am all for it. I do love summer but I also fall (and spring, not a winter fan!)  So it is time for me to start thinking of Christmas...never time to start thinking of that, but when you make your own Christmas cards it is time to think Christmas cards!

So for our challenge at H2H this week, the theme is Sweet Treats and Christmas is all about sweet treats. I created this card for the challenge and my Holly & Ivy card workshop. This card reminds me of sweet treats you can drink around the holidays, hot cocoa and coffee shop inspired drinks. 

For the coffee mug, I masked off the pumpkin when I stamped it and then added a heart to match the larger coffee cup. I also added clear shimmer trim on the white areas that are whipped cream.

Hello - Terrific Tag H2H Challenge

Today I have a fall card I created for the H2H Challenge Design Team and our theme this week is Terrific Tags.

I did have a fun time creating this card today and don't think it turned out too bad. I had fun using my water colour pencils for this card. I also whipped out one of my embossing folders and again, I product that I love the look of, but never seem to remember to use them or just feel it does not work with the project I am working on. I just love the sweet treats on this card!

I also love the Fall colours so Pumpkin Spice....a huge favourite of mine, this is the first of several cards I will be bringing you featuring this paper pack before I dive into Christmas card making. 

This card is part of my Pumpkin Spice card making workshop and was super fun to make!

Isabella Thinking of you - AHSC 439

Hello! Today I am bringing you a project I made for both my Isabella card workshop and my AHSC Design team project. 

I know I always say this but I really loved playing with this paper pack. I just love the bright bold colours and it was a fun switch from the very outdoorsy feel (which I also loved) of the Wander paper pack. I also loved how cheerful the papers made me feel, the bright bold blues and yellows were perfect to me to brighten someones day and with all going on in this world, everyone knows someone who can use some cheering up!
