Jill-O-Lantern Mixed Media

The fall weather has finally arrived here in Texas. It was nice to wake up to temps in the 60's F. I made this adorable mixed media on canvas at The Little Blue House here in Keller.

I started by mod podging papers to a pre-made canvas frame. Once all of the papers were dry, I added paint with an old credit card. Next, I used some stencils and white paint. "Jill" was assembled onto the canvas with mod podge as well as her fabric dress and arms. The "spooky" words were stenciled in black and the remaining objects were glued on. Such a fun day! Can't wait to do another class.

I {heart} Fall

Happy fall crafters:-) I usually love this time of year with the cool crisp air and colorful leaves, but in Texas, it's still in the 90's. For a midwesterner, that would be a very hot summer day! I don't recall that it was even that warm in Sydney in the fall. So, to get me in the spirit, I made this super cute tag set for my display blocks. I made this from the new kit available at The Little Blue House. It was very easy to assemble since everything was pre-cut. Hope you enjoy your fall (or spring for my Aussie friends).

Thinking of you

Made a couple of cards for the CAS(E) this sketch! and Crafty Calendar card challenges. Okay, I got a little carried away and went outside of the "simple" definition, but I thought I'd post it anyway. I love using my friends stamp sets, Iron Gate Stamps. The first card I used was from the Weathervane set and the second card was from her Birdhouse set.

Happy Birthday, Gabby!

Oh, my oldest is 18 today! Ugh!  I can't be old enough to have an 18 year old! Although, I still have a four year old that keeps me young {at heart};-) I made this birthday tag for her. I had a kit from a class offered at Catchy Crafts . I had to make this tag because we have a Westie. Turns out I am falling in love with using these Julie Nutting stamps. It's like making paper dolls when I was a little girl:-) I'm using this for the Crafty Calendar challenge this month.

Freshly Made Sketch #174

As I do every beginning of the year, I promise myself to use what I have and not to buy anything until I've depleted at least half of my stash.  So, here is a card using leftover patterned paper and stamps from a card kit I bought at  Catchy Crafts in Hornsby, Australia last year. I'm not sure the stack the paper came from, but the stamp set is from Hot Off The Press. I made this card for this week's Freshly Made Sketch Challenge.

Happy Lunar New Year! I wanted to do something different for the Sketch Saturday challenge. These darling stamps I used come from Iron Gate Stamps' Fortune Cookie set. The patterned card stock I used is by Graphic 45.

You're My Pot of Gold!

Hello creative friends! Today I would like to share with you a card I made for a few challenges. I used the free St Patricks Day cut from Cricut Craftroom. I think this is my favorite "pot o gold" cut. I love the layers and the inset clover/shamrock. I embellished the gold coins with Stickles (of course) as well as the "sparkles". The circle layer is dry embossed with Cuttlebug's Argyle folder and the green layer is  embossed with Darice's St Patrick's folder. I used a sentiment stamp from Scrappy Moms' Spring Fling set.
