Wreath FSJ

I had a lovely weekend! Facebook was full of fabulous cards from my friends, and I was having a bit of crafters block!  Well, I'm glad to say that after a bit of crafty chat with Jeanne, about some projects I want to accomplish... something clicked.. and my brain was full of ideas! :)  Thanks, Jeanne!!! You Rock!
Wow... I am loving how this wreath turned out! :)
I used my snapshot frames on the holly leaves and berries - in Turbo Teal, Lemon Grass, and Brush Silver.  For the sentiment die, Joy I used Whip Cream! :)
The cardbase and layers are in Turbo Teal, Whip Cream, and Corrugated!

I added some silks in Electric Lime, and Silver!

I really enjoyed how this turned out... and glad to see that my mojo has returned!

PCC214 2 week challenge

Did you see the update and all new look over at Paper Craft Crew? 
Well, you should check it out! I did... and found this awesome challenge going on!

Pulled out lots of Fun Stampers Journey products for my take on the sketch!

My sentiment stamp is from Oh Holy and the background has lots of fun layers of colors, die cuts and bling! I used the Silver & Electric Lime Silks, Blue Lagoon Splash, and some rhinestones too!
from the Richard Garay product line, I used the amazing dots which come in a pack with three colors Gray, White, and Black. To finish off my card, I added a bit of thread and a River Stone card base!

That's it for this design

Until next time

update! woohoo ... my card was a pick!

Freshly Made Sketches #257 - A Sketch by Jen M

Got my Bloom Box in the mail today
& FMS just posted a new challenge.
 I went to work!

Fairy World is a fantastic stamp set, from Fun Stampers Journey and I knew I had to use it!
I did go a bit rogue on this... and used my zig's, however, I used them dry! Yup! I didn't add any water and used them as markers! :)  I did a simple base in Whip Cream and background using corrugated cardstock!  I took out a bit more WC cs and cut it down to 3 3/4 by 4 1/4 which gave me lots of space around to show off my gorgeous corrugated cs! :) I added some of my own Glaze Dots (I made em') in clear, and added a bow in Black Licorice to match my ink color. Almost forgot I rounded the corners!

Check out the challenge this week!

Until next time,

All of my products are Fun Stampers Journey

Did this card using the sketch over at Mojo Mondays!

Lots of layers for this card!  I started by selecting from my dies for the scallop part at the bottom of the sketch which I did in Stars from Border Details!
Up next came all of the other layers, mixing card stock with prints. In Cool Pool, Cranberry Bliss, Black Licorice, River and that cute snowflake design from Tis the Season prints.  For my sentiment layer, I grabbed Whip Cream and Oh Holy Stamp set!
I completed the card by adding a cute bow in BL Sparkle Ribbon and a bit of the print again.
check out my store at FSJ for these products and so much more!

That's it for this card!

Until next time

Almost didn't do this post today and I didn't bother creating a card until just a bit ago...

I created this sketch for CYCI which makes a bit harder for me to post today.
I'm not one to give up on something I love, but there is only so much of me to go around. Lots of folks having been very kind in sharing their thoughts on CYCI ending... and I can't thank them enough. So, this card is for all the joy, the happiness, and heartburn and some days hell that running Can You Case It? was!

LOL!! I remember everything, the sketches, colors, and themes! 
Back when this thing started, I had no idea what I was getting into

I still get butterflies in my stomach every time a post goes live!
Did I get everything right or screw something up?

Lots of folks were very kind... and others just passed me by
I think of the first card... it wasn't so great!
But I did it.. and just like today, I'll do it again!

So, that's it for today!

you know the drill.. everything is FSJ

This is Eva.... I'm out!

FMS#256 Give Thanks

Hello... I've got a super cute card and a fabulous challenge to share!
This week Jen T. has given the Freshly Made Sketches team and us! 

I used some of my Fun Stampers Journey
My cardbase is Oatmeal Cookie (love this) and my print comes from the Autumn Prints collection of 6 by 6!  Just happens that tomorrow will be the last day to purchase it... so if you love it, get it!

Up next is the Grateful Heart stamp set (there are 2 in the set) I heat embossed it, in J. White and added a touch of color with my zigs!  I die cut it with the J. Circles.  The final touches were the OMC Organza Ribbon and my homemade Glaze dots with Gold Silk.

Until next time
