Precious Remembrance Shop ~ Design it Monday!

Good Monday morning all! I'm up on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog today with my Design It Monday post. Why not start off your week with a little Christmas card inspiration. I hope you'll pop over there to check out my card and tag projects.

Have a blessed day ~Lisa


CC #60 ~ Giving Thanks!

Rain rain go away! What a gloomy soggy day we have. It's the kind of day that makes me want to snuggle in, make a big pot of homemade soup and watch a good movie! I finally had a chance to put some of my colored and die cut pieces of those new Pretty Pink Posh items together a couple of days ago.

I've used the adorable little pilgrims from the new Giving Thanks stamp set along with some pumpkins, acorns and leaves. They're all cut with the coordinating dies. I framed the sentiment with a Scallop Oval die cut. It's tucked behind some patterned paper thats topped with a wood grained paper cut with a Stitched Borders 4 die. 

Since this has some orange chevrons, leaves and pumpkins, I think I'll link it up at The Card Concept.  I also have the blueish green from the window view in the inspiration photo. I had this card made before ever seeing that photo. Funny how well it worked for the challenge! I would say this fits into their clean and layered category, how about you?

Have a wonderful weekend ~Lisa


cQc #364 ~ Trick or Treat!

Hey there! We have a bright and happy palette for you at ColourQ this week. I was not only inspired by the colors, but the inspiration photo as well. Check out what some of my fellow design team members have to share for some incredible inspiration that might or might not be of the Halloween nature!

I reached for another image from the last 12 Kits of Occasions kit. I used a combination of watercoloring, Copics, Tombow markers and Wink of Stella to jazz up this little witch. A snippet of Pumpkin Pie cardstock was die cut with a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 1 die. The sentiment (also from the kit) was cut with a PPP Mini Tags die

If you look closely at the ribbon in the inspiration photo, you'll see a loopy design on it. I mimicked that with my dry embossed background. Finally some scattered turquoise rhinestones to look as if the little witch were sprinkling about some magic!

Can't wait to see what you do with the colors this week. 
We always enjoy your projects in our gallery! 


Sweet Treats!

Hello lovelies! It's been awhile since I've posted. I would like to thank each and every one of you for your kinds words, thoughts, prayers and beautiful cards for our family with the loss of my husband's sister. Your caring hearts have touched us both deeply. Please know how grateful we are.

I found some time to use more of the goodies from Jeanne's incredible Halloween kit (The 12 Kits of Occasions). She had some of the items tucked into a polka dot treat bag. If you know me, you know I have a thing for polka dots! So through the die cutting machine they went! I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 die to cut the bag and some cardstock to back the tag with. The bag was thin and I wanted it to be durable enough to support the suckers. 

The junk bows were made using a combination of ribbons, ric rac and twines from the kit and my stash. I fell in love with these sweet trick or treater silhouettes. They're popped up with foam tape and loaded up with Wink of Stella.

I love the way these turned out. I think Sweet P and I might deliver these to the kiddo across the street. The little girl started Kindergarten this year leaving her 3 year old brother at home missing her. Poor little guy!

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
It's nice to be back ~Lisa

cQc #363 ~ Happy Halloween!

Hiya! We have a fun challenge for this week's ColourQ! Black, white, newsprint and one spot color of your choice. With Halloween fast approaching, I chose orange!

My card came together very quickly with items left over from the last 12 Kits of Occasions kit. I added the newsprint paper to the mix. It's die cut with a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 3 die. The die cut sentiment and cat were loaded up with Wink of Stella for some added glitz!! It was a new pen and WOW did it flow with gusto LOL!! 

That's a wrap from me. 
There's fun to be had with my little Sweet P today!!
