Knot That Old Pretzel Tag

Hello and can you believe it's already October??  This month will be a busy one with school activities and pumpkin patch trips.  This is actually one of my favorite and most exhausting months!

To kick off this month, I'm sharing a tag for this months Papercraft Business Challenge: Tag It!  This is also an anything goes, but we hope to see tags on your creations.
I'm using the Simon Says Stamps I Chews You 2018 kit.  This really is an adorable set that I haven't used nearly as much as I had hoped.
I added a little dimension and glaze.  I added white dots for the salt as well.
Can you see the little face on these cute pretzels?  It's easy to miss, but they are cute once you see them.

So please join in this month if you can!  Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.

Autumn Girl in Pink card

Hello and happy Freebie Friday!  I really thought this day would never come - not the freebie part, the Friday part.  Ever have those weeks that just don't seem to want to end?  Well, mine has been creeping by like a snail and all I want is a weekend.

Back to the freebie  part of this post.  Head over to Bugaboo Stamps to pick up this cute little Autumn Girl, free for one week.

I didn't really go overly fall-ish with this creation.  I think she's not quite committed to fall and is holding onto bits of summer.

The paper is from Miss Kate Cuttables, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Itty Bitty Banners set.

I try to make cards that are easy to mail, and I actually managed a flat card this time.  I did add a bit of glaze, but a simple creation.  So don't forget to pick up your free digi from Bugaboo Stamps.

Artsy Butterfly Birthday Card

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Last night we got so much rain, and this morning I woke up to the cool air.  Yup, fall is literally in the air and I LOVE it all!  I find that the colors are different (and I don't just mean the changing of the leaves) and that there is even a distinct smell in the air that signifies the season's change.

But for today I am here to share a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes.

I'm featuring Fred, She Said designs: Distressed Butterfly and Blossoms set.

I was going for "artsy" and something new with this image.  I literally pulled out my copic refills and started placing color, drop by drop, onto the image.  I tried to keep the colors somewhat contained, since I wanted my butterfly to be orange and yellow, but I didn't stress too much when colors ran together.
I read on a bottle of liquid pearls that you can use a paint brush to apply the product.  OK, let's give this a try!!  I painted only the butterfly, using a small paint brush.  Honestly, I was a bit disappointed because my colors were muted.  So I thought, I'll drop more copic ink!  And I believe it really saved the image AND you can still see the glimmer from the liquid pearls.

The sentiment is from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit, and I added a bit of sewing.  Different style for me, but I'm good with it.

That's it from me.  Thank you for stopping by.

Explosion September Birthday Card

Hello and happy Monday!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for my brother's 50th birthday!  I made several cards and handed them out for other people to mail to him - so he got plenty of cards this year!

This features Bugaboo Stamps September Word Art digi.  I popped up the word art on top of a calendar I printed from online.  It was a little too plain for me so I added a bit of copic refill smooshing.  And when you open the card, it's an explosion card!

So this is the inside!!  This took a few tries using my scor-pal and a few different tutorials until I got the exact fit I wanted.  I ended up using a full sheet of white copy paper (8.5 x 11 inch).

The inside uses a stamp set from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  I must say, I was happy with the end result.

Just a quick share today.  Thank you for taking a look.  Have a wonderful week!

Celebrate Cake with Candles Birthday Card

Hello!  I hope everyone is doing well.  I am currently fighting off a cold...well, my body doesn't really "fight," it pretty much rolls over and plays dead.  Oh well.

For today I would like to share the latest Catch the Bug Challenge: Anything Goes!

Always a favorite and easy challenge, so please join in this week if you can.  I'm featuring Bugaboo Stamps Dollar Candle Cake, and as the name implies, this image is just one dollar.
I added a bit of glaze on the candles, a few sequins, and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.

So again, join in if you get a chance this week.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my latest creation.
