Tuesday Trigger:Sweet Dreams

Tuesday Trigger:Sweet Dreams
Moxie Fab World
I went with a thinking of you card. Such a beautiful image, all the patterns, with that fresh feel. Really a pretty bedroom, one that I would love to visit. Yes this did send to me to the craft table to grab my Paper Cottage Paper by Basic Grey. I embossed the white cardstock with PTI  canvas plate which I know is hard to see. Then used the mat stack #3 Dies from PTI to give it that bed frame look. So many looks from just one beautiful image!

Runway Inspired Challenge

Well this quite the that I would never wear. But I love those colors! I used Limeaid Ice and Enchanted Evening cardstock from PTI. Also inspired by the star bursts and just felt you have to be strong to wear that dress (I know we are back to the dress issue...ha!). I die cut the star out and used the negative space and placed the sentiment in the inside. Then inked the star cut out with ink to provide contrast. This card will be donated to Operation Write Home to a Hero:)

This card was made in record speed once the idea hit me(LOL).  I lined the patterned paper with red cardstock then rolled the that paper with the die, then placed it on the red card base. Fluffed it out then placed the twine... done! This one of those dies where your patterns and colors will make the difference.

Holiday Tag-12 Days of Christmas with a Feminine Twist

Ellen Hutson
12 Days of Christmas Holiday Tags with a Feminine Twist
The challenge is to create a Christmas Tag with a Feminine twist. They have 12 different designers with loads of inspiration!! So for my inspiration was Kittie and her tag created a a scene with a reindeer. She had no sentiment but it got the point across that it was holiday so I followed suit and left mine with none. See Kittie's tag here.
I went pink using the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly paper (I still like this paper). It had that windy snowflake look so the reindeer is blitzing through the 'night' air over snowy glistening country side. Brrrrr...!
