Steph Jandrow 

Here is what I came up with for this month's hop...

The other night I was at a friend's house and saw a really fun Thanksgiving banner that she had hanging in her door way and I thought I could make something like that! The next night I started playing around with it...I used Unity Stamp Co. Alphabetically Adorable Stamp Set, Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice Paper for the smaller banner...for the larger banner I used DCWV Burlap Stack...for the burlap part I traced the largest SU! Banner die cut I have and cut it them out by hand...I used SU! ink for the letters...I hung the banner using SU! Brown Sugar Twine and Recollection clothespins on each banner...though it is more for show...each smaller banner is adhered to the large one...I also used two journal cards from the Pumpkin Spice Kit...I just trimmed them down to fit the banner...
Here is the card that I made to go along with the banner...
I used SU! Crumb Cake for the base of my card and then used another Pumpkin Spice journal card but trimmed it down using my Memory Box Square Stitch Die...same for the yellow...SU! Daffodil Delight and used a Recollection clothes pin...Stamped my Paper Smooches sentiment (Memory Box Rectangle Stitch Die) with SU! Chocolate Chip which is my favorite color! I can never get enough of it!
Now here is the fun part...

CYCI ~ Color Challenge

Hi there and Welcome to this week's CYCI Color Challenge! This week's challenge is one of my favorite color combinations yellow and brown ~ I love how they go together! 
Here is my take on this week's Challenge
This week's card I used a Phyllis Harris stamp from Unity Face the Sunshine...I just love this stamp set! This is also the first time I have attempted to color a person in...It took me a couple of times before I felt good about my coloring job...For the base of the card I used SU! DSP Daffodil Delight..I stamped the girl and the sentiment on SU! Whisper White...the sentiment was stamped in SU! Chocolate Chip...for the girl I used Spectrum Noir markers...Needless to say I see myself getting more of her stamps!
Thanks for stopping by...I can't wait to see what you come up with!

OSAT Holiday Blog Hop

Hi there and Welcome to this month's OSAT Holiday Blog Hop! This month's theme is Holiday and this is definitely one fun season to make fun gifts for family and friends! For this month's hop I made a wine tag, wine coasters, and a fun tin to put the coasters in...
Here is what I made...

I recently read about stamping on coasters and wanted to try it out and I am hooked now! For the coasters I used cardboard ones that I found on line...I used Hero Arts Winter Sparkle Background stamp...for the ink I used SU! Pear Pizzazz, Lost Lagoon, and Cherry Cobbler...I wanted something fun to put the coasters in and decided to use a CD holder (have had them for never know what you might need it!) I used My Mind's Eye Mistletoe Magic paper on the CD case holder and wine tag (Jaded Blossom Wine Tag Die)...for the bow I used SU! Sheer Linen Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler...I love how it all turned out..definitely will be making these as hostess gifts for the holiday season!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
Now on to the next fun holiday creation!

Don't forget to check them all out!

CYCI#94 ~ A Sketch Challenge

Hi there and welcome to this week's CYCI#94! Now that Halloween is behind us and we are moving onto Thanksgiving and Christmas I started pulling out winter and Christmas stamps, embellies, and paper to start working on Christmas cards and anything that has to do with paper crafting!
Here is my card for this week's sketch...
I found this fun paper from American Crafts ~ Wish List ~ I used SU! Crumb Cake (always Kraft to me!) to use as the base of the card..along with the smaller square and for the middle square I used their Basic Black...each of the squares I used my Memory Box Stitched Square those dies!...I used Unity Stamp's Happy Holiday Wishes for the tree in SU! Real Red and the "Merry Christmas" is also from Unity... Tags Glorious Tags in Memento's Tuxedo Black...  I recently bought some sequins and used them to add a little bit of "bling" first attempt on this card!
So now I have been bitten by the "Christmas Card Bug" and will be making more of these!
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Unity Tuesday Hop ~ Wine and Friends

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog for this week's Unity Tuesday Hop! This week I am using one of my favorite kits ~ Let's Get Sip Face ~ It is such a fun kit! I have recently discovered stamping on cork coasters while on Pinterest...I read about it and have started making them...
Here is what I came up with 

This was really fun to make! I order the coasters from Amazon and went to town...I used Stazon Black ink and my hubby tested it with a glass of ice water...nothing bled! For the wine tag I used Simple Stories Snap! Color Vibe Color Vibe Collection Turquoise...I stamped this fun stamp on SU! Whisper White with their Real Red Ink...I love how it "pops" with the turquoise...I used Jaded Blossom's wine tag this worth getting it! I tied up the coasters with SU! Real Red ribbon...I thought this would make a great Christmas gift or Hostess Gift...
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a $25 Unity Gift Certificate!

CYCI #93 ~ Fall Edition

Hi there and Welcome to this week's CYCI Fall Edition
 This is definitely my favorite season of the year...there are endless possibilities to come up with this theme...
Here is my take on this week's sketch
For this week's sketch I chose to do a CAS Card...Clean and Simple...For the base of the card I used SU! Crumb Cake...though I still like to call if Kraft :) ...For the patterned paper I used October Afternoon's Apple Cider Harvest...I played around with different sentiments and stamps but then decided on using my Paper Smooches Thanks Word die cut on top of SU! Burlap Ribbon...I actually have two rolls of it since I love it so much! I also used one of my favorite corner punches from Creative Memories that I have had for probably 10 years now...I cornered punch 3 out of the 4 corners which I think gives the card a unique and fun look...
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
