Baby it's cold outside! FINALLY!

This week's Make it Monday Challenge from Papertrey Ink is the reverse applique technique.
I used it on my felt snowflake. I cut the heart out of my snowflake and layered some stamped pure poppy cardstock in between my felt snowflakes and then stitched around it. Then i decided it was too cute to just be on a card so i put some glossy accents over the heart to protect it and then i added a pin backing to the whole thing to make a pretty snowflake pin for my scarf :)

here's the card front:

Color My World


today's card is for this week's make it monday challenge from papertrey ink. this week we're brayering ink onto embossed cardstock. pretty :)

i went with a whole bunch of color and some frilly tulle on this card. perfect for a little girl's birthday, and the tulle mushes down pretty well so it isn't too bulky to mail :)

thanks for stopping by!

Watercolored Leaves

long time no see!

I had a lovely family vacation at the beginning of the month, we went to Disney World for the food and wine festival and the wine and dine half marathon and had a blast!

here's me and my dad with chef mickey before our race!

anyway, it took me a few days to get back in the swing of things but now i'm back in my studio and getting inky! :)

Today's card is for this week's Make it Monday Challenge from Papertrey Ink. This week we're doing some "faux watercoloring" with inks and a waterbrush.

I'm full of warm and fuzzy feelings for fall this week with our leaves starting to change colors and the air getting just a little chillier, so i decided to go with the warm fuzzies for my card :) I stamped all of the leaves with distress ink and went over them with my waterbrush a couple times to soften them up a bit.

Thanks for stopping by! Lemme know what you think!
