Last challenge of the year!

Posted under Uncategorized No Comments

This is the last challenge of the year at Shopping Our Stash – Tis the Season!  A Holiday card!  Yes!  I’m solidly in the holiday creativity mode, so I was excited for this one.  The Sabres are playing tonight – another nail biting game –  so, to ease the tension a bit I decided to make a card while the game played in the background.   Well, my desk was strewn with the left overs of holiday tag and present decoration making (more Holiday hacks) and I decided to use one of the tags on my card:

 

 

I’ve been heavily into reds and greens lately so this time I decided to go a different direction.  I used the Stampers Anonymous Festive Overlay set – CMS357 and Ornate Trims – CMS326.  A cringled bit of seam binding, an alcohol inked and glittered pinecone and some greenery…Happy New Year a few weeks early!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Card Swap!

Posted under Uncategorized 11 Comments

Ladies your cards are ready to be picked up!  I have to applaud each and every one of you, what gorgeous cards!!!   Sharing three cards that really caught my eye (it was a very tough decision!)

 

Linda S. created this clean and simple card with a background die from Taylored Expressions and a sentiment die from Impression Obsession – classic and striking!

Gail P. used a Concord and 9th turnabout stamp and the triple step stamping technique.  The mirricard die cut sentiment is the perfect touch!

Shelly D. created a beautiful scene combining Taylored Expressions stamps, a  Penny Black Lamppost die and an Impression Obsession carolers die.  An inky background and sparkly snow sets the scene perfectly!

 

…and yes, I just HAD to create the Tim Holtz Holiday Hack with the ombre bottle brush trees on the vintage ruler – such a cute decoration and really quick and easy to make!

 

Thanks for stopping by – please leave a note so I know you visited!

It’s coming down fast and heavy up here in Vernon. As the snow is supposed to change to sleet and ice, I have decided not to risk the treacherous roads. Paper Anthology will be closed tonight. Stay home and safe everyone!

Winter closing!

Posted under Uncategorized No Comments

So, I’m pretty sure no one is planning on venturing out in this weather to buy stamps (or paper for that matter) but if you are…don’t! Stay home safe and sound – cuddle up in a warm quilt, drink some hot tea, maybe make a few winter wishes cards. Paper Anthology will be closed today, seeing as I can’t even find my van in this white out!
