The Paper Players ~ Trick or Treat!

Well hello there! Are you having a nice weekend? Our weather has turned a bit cooler, starting to feel more like autumn. That makes today's card for The Paper Players all the more appropriate. We have a Halloween theme this week courtesy of our hostess Joanne! I've used Freshly Made Sketches for my design inspiration today.

I have so many fun things left from my 12 Kits of Occasions kit so I'm sharing another card using some of those items today! The spider I added is from Northwoods and the sentiment is DeNami. Everything else came in Jessica's cute kit. You can find those details on the 12 kits blog.

Have a wonderful day ~Lisa


The 12 Kits of Occasions!

Hello lovelies! My sweet blogging friend Cathy Weber has asked me to fill in for her for the remainder of the year at The 12 Kits of Occasions! I've long admired this blog, the concept and the teams of designers who have shared their works of art from a common kit. They are all given the same product to work with and they all come up with the most amazing cards! What a honor to be crafting alongside these talented ladies!! 

This month's kit is all about Halloween. All supplies used can be found on the 12 Kits blog. If I add anything of my own, I'll highlight it for you. So, here we go.....

Is this paper and that thin sentiment die cut not the cutest!! Love those little goblins all lined up. I think this one will go to our little pumpkin Sweet P for her first Halloween! The tiny bow is a Mama Elephant die.

Next up is this spooky scene with oodles of ghosts floating about! I added yellow paper behind the windows on this nifty neighborhood die cut. They're also brushed with Wink of Stella.

I like this playful paper with the birds and owls all stacked up!! A strip of woodgrain paper and pretty My Favorite Things die cut leaves add to the woodsy theme. I added a thin little zig zag strip (Stitched Borders 1 die from Pretty Pink Posh) to the sentiment panel.

Those creepy crawly embossed spiders called for a simple card design. The cute little ghoul in popped up with foam dots. I added a few wraps of twine to give the feel of a web!

I have so many cute things left from this kit and I hope to share more before Halloween! Thanks so much for spending a little time with me today. Head over to the 12 Kits blog to see what my teammates have to share! ~Lisa


cQc #310 ~ Happy Birthday!

Hello! We have a new challenge up at ColourQ. A bright assortment of colors and a fun inspiration photo. Here's what I have to share. I hope it inspires you to come play along this week!

My focus was on the round bowls of the measuring spoons along with the order of the colors on the color chart. I stamped this pretty little leaf ('A La Art, another of those stamps my son bought me years ago!) using the four colors onto white cardstock. Next, I used the PTI simple circles border to die cut it. My bright happy birthday sentiment is by RC. A little patterned paper and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins (4mm & 6mm) finish things off.

There you go peeps, have a great day!! ~Lisa


Precious Remembrance Shop ~ Design it Monday!

Monday greetings! It's my turn to share a post on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog today. I hope you have a few minutes to pop over and check out my Design It Monday card.

Have a great day ~Lisa


The Paper Players ~ Hello!

A happy Sunday to you! I'm sharing a card today for this week's Paper Players challenge. Claire has a great sketch for you to try and the rest of the DT has some marvelous inspiration for your viewing pleasure. Here's what I put together, hope you like it!

I followed the sketch pretty closely just changing up a couple of things. I used a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 tag die for the rectangle and added two fussy cut leaves under the button. Those leaves are courtesy of my son. He bought me that stamp 'A La Art many years ago for a mother's day gift along with a few others! Love my Joey! This DP is from an older Cosmo Cricket 6x6 pad. The Mama Elephant sentiment die and the PPP Stitched Border 1 scallops die are both cut from a shimmery brown paper. 

That's a wrap for me today. I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for a sneak peek at my Precious Remembrance Shop Design it Monday post. Take care ~Lisa
