Merry Xmas

It feels so good to be creative again. After months of absence and occassionally creating and posting a card I've been really enjoying the creative process again. And now that I've been making cards again I realize how much I missed it.

Last weekend I was in the mood for making a Christmas card. Last year I bought October Afternoon's Holiday Style collection but never used the papers. Recently I went through my stash and put lots of my scrapbook stuff aside to sell in the future, but I kept all of my October Afternoon goodies. I just love their papers too much.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream) | Patterned papers: October Afternoon (Holiday Style) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch: Tea Dye Duo) | Twine: Cards & Wishes | Ribbon: Cards & Wishes | Button: Buttons Galore | Pearls, adhesive dots: Zva Creative | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Edgers #1 Die Collection, Wonderful Words: Holiday Die Collection, Wplus9 (Simple Snowflake Die)| Other: kraft tag

For those of you who are interested in my crochet creations...I've set up a new blog that is dedicated to crochet. The blog is called Studio 92 designs and can be found here. Last week I crocheted Xmas tree ornaments for charity. I made some extra to give away. Hop on over to my crochet blog and leave a comment here for a chance to win the set.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Halloween | Got Sketch? 150

Today I get to show you the other card I made last week. The card is based on the new sketch #150 from Got Sketch?. Our theme is Fall or Halloween. Too bad we don't have Halloween over here, because I love to create something for Halloween. I didn't have any Halloween patterned papers in my stash, so I picked some papers from October Afternoon and Lily Bee Design that match the Halloween/Fall theme.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (kraft) | Patterned papers: Lily Bee Design, October Afternoon | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Happy Day, Big Birthday Wishes) | Ink: Versafine (Onyx Black), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch: Tea Dye Duo) | Twine: Cards & Wishes | Button: A Muse Studio (Onyx) | Crystal, adhesive dots: Zva Creative (CRS-03CB-117, AD01CB101) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Limitless Layers: 2 1/2" Circle Die Collection, Double-Ended Banners Die), sewing machine

Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful day.

Many Thanks

It's been ages since I blogged, but I'm back. Due to our personal circumstances I didn't feel like being creative. Well, I wanted to be creative and create cards, but I couldn't do it. I had no inspiration and didn't know where to start. But....the inspiration is finally getting back. I already made some new mini kits for my shop Cards & Wishes lately and yesterday I made two cards.

This card is for my friend Ingeborg. She's a wonderful woman and such a sweetheart and I still owed her a Thank You card for a wonderful surprise she sent us a few weeks ago.

A beautiful pearl flower from Zva Creative. It goes really well with the flower die-cut from Papertrey Ink.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream) | Patterned paper: Crate Paper (Pretty Party) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Embellishments) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch: Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Onyx Black), VersaColor (Pinecone) | Adhesive pearls, dots: Zva Creative | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Just the Ticket Border Die, Heart Border Die, Frilly Flowers Die Collection, Parisian Lace Doily Die), We R Memory Keepers (corner chomper), sewing machine

I can't show the other card yet, but will do so in a few days.

Enjoy your weekend!
