JAS Challenge...Let's Get Carried Away

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Happy Thursday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to another fabulous JAS Challenge. This week's challenge is to create a card, project or layout with an animal/pet as the focal point using any color palette of your choice. Needless to write, I don't have a lot of animal images in my stamp collection; however, I did find this cutie and was instantly smitten.  It is always nice to rummage through ones stamp collection and find a hidden gem =)

Happy Wednesday Taylored Expressions Fans,

Well, the end of January is quickly approaching, which means I have only one last card to share with you from this month's Petite-a-Palooza. I hope you enjoyed viewing some of the awesome creations found in the Taylored Expressions' Gallery. If you have not hopped over there, please do, you will not be disappointed!

Today's card features the oh so cute Souper Soon petite stamp and die combination. I just adore this little set. Oh, the fun I had designing this pop-up tissue box card!

Unity's Friends With Flair...Hanging By A Thread? I'll Pull You Through

Happy Friday Unity Fans,

Wahoo! We made it to Friday! Time to have fun with my crafty friends and share this week's Unity creation. I have had this particular Unity stamp for over a year, without getting it nice and inky. Not cool. Today, I decided to show the stamp By A Thread a little love.

Taylored Expressions...You Make My Heart Race

Happy Thursday Taylored Expressions Fans,

I have enjoyed working with the various petite stamps and combination dies that were released this month. Today, I am showcasing the Vroom, Vroom petite stamp and die combo. This stamp is perfect for Valentine's Day or birthdays for that matter. However, I thought I would get a jump start on creating my hubby's Valentine's Day card this year. I love it when a stamp set leads to motivation and inspiration.

JAS Challenge...

Good Morning Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to this week's Just A Scrappin' challenge, which is to create a sympathy card using any color palette of your choice. I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch No. 184 to create my card along with some of my favorite crafting goodies.

Happy Friday Unity Fans,

I am dropping in this morning to share a card I made using Unity's Out of This World stamp. With Valentine's Day quickly approaching (we are already halfway through January), I thought I better get a jump on my Valentine's Day card stash.

JAS Challenge...Pop Up Cards

Thursday, January 15, 2015

Good Morning Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to Just A Scrappin's weekly challenge. This week we are designing dimensional and/or pop up cards for any occasion using the colors of your choice. I am excited to do this challenge, because sometime back I came across a lovely card on Pinterest (which is from Fabienne) I wanted to CASE. Well here was my chance to give it a try.

Happy Monday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

I love starting the week off with a little crafty goodness. Doing so just puts a smile on my face, especially today with temperatures in the low 30s with rain. Today, I am sharing a darling card made with Taylored Expressions' Lefty, a petite stamp and die combination. Isn't he so cute?

Taylored Expressions' January Release Day!

Thursday, January 8, 2015

Happy Thursday Taylored Expressions Fans,

Today is Release Day! Wahoo! This month is a Petite-Palooza! That's right, a perfect mix of petite stamps and matching die combos. Today, I am showcasing a sweet, petite stamp set and die combo, called Happy New Home.

Okay, this little stamp is just AWESOME and so versatile. I know I will be getting a lot of mileage out of this duo. The stamp offers sentiment stamps for both new homeowners and for saying Thank You to a wonderful hostess.

JAS Challenge...Just Wanted to Expresso My Thanks!

Happy Thursday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to the first Just A Scrappin' Challenge for 2015!  This week, we are challenging you to have a little creative fun with die cutting using any occasion and colors of your choice. I decided to get a jump on my Thank You card can never have enough Thank You cards on hand =)

I created this card using Taylored Expressions' Joe -to-Go petite stamp and die combo. I used the stamped image of the coffee cup to create my background using Antique Linen distress ink. I then die cut the coffee cup and several coordinating layers to added interest and depth. Lastly, I stamped my swirl of steam and sentiment and my card was complete.
