The 12 Kits of Occasions!

Hi friends! It's that time of month again when the ladies of The 12 Kits of Occasions share our cards. This month Kim is our hostess and she sent out kits filled with polka dot paper! Swoon, I was a happy girl when I opened that package!! You might want to grab something to drink and get comfy. I made five cards...yep those polka dots took hold and wouldn't let go!!!

First up is Sweet P's Thanksgiving card. The adorable Harvest Mouse is framed up in the Pretty Pink Posh Storybook 1 Die along with a sentiment I added from DeNami Design. The tiny bow is from PPP's Twine and Bows Die.

I love the way this one turned out! I added the little mouse to one of my PPP Stitched Photo Frames Dies along with a few Martha Stewart punched pine sprigs. I also used a portion of a sentiment from the kit.

The large sentiment stands on it's own quite well. I simply die cut it with the PPP Stitched Banner Duo Die than added the little mittens and mug. I stamped and heat embossed the snowflakes on the mittens. I also added the stripes to the mug using markers and Washi to mask it off.

I made a shaker card with the fun polar bear and iceberg. Love the way the PPP Scallop Frame looks in polka dots! It's filled with PPP sequins Kim sent along with PPP 4mm & 6mm Classic Christmas Sequins. The sentiment is on the inside. I'll use this one for one of our family winter birthdays.

Finally comes another polar bear backed with rows of Washi from the kit. What...no polka dots on this one? I'll be sending it to my brother for his birthday in January. Polka dots aren't very masculine!! The sentiment was die cut with a Reverse Confetti banner.

And that's a wrap! Be sure to check out with the other 12 Kits DT members have to share. They are amazingly talented you know!! ~Lisa

Snowmen Fall From Heaven Unassembled!

Hi there! We have a new challenge up at The Paper Players today! Sandy is our hostess this week giving us a Tic Tac Toe board to work from. I went straight across the top row working with a snowflake, patterned paper and white.

Aren't the jolly snowmen on this paper adorable! They sure look like they're having fun. I added a layered Papertrey Ink snowflake die with a sweet pink polka dot button. The sentiment is from Morning Star Stamps. All of the patterned paper is from a 6x6 Crate Paper pad. This one was quick and easy, a good one to put together over a holiday weekend!

I'll be linking this up at the SSS Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes!

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
We hope you have time to play along with us this week! ~Lisa


Peace On Earth!

Hi friends! I'm popping in with a quick post today. I had time to squeeze in a little card making to play along with this week's PTI Make It Monday. Here's my card using Dawn's stamping on kraft technique!

I used the pretty poinsettias and pine from the Bells and Boughs set. Love the soft country look this card has. Hope you like it too! Those pretty little sparkly centers are Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Marshmallow Sequins.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing all of those celebrating today a Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm blessed to have all of you, my sweet blogging friends, in my life ~Lisa


cQc #318 ~ Happy Thanksgiving!

Howdy doody! How are your Thanksgiving plans coming along? We'll have a full house this year, 13 adults and two babies!! The house will smell delish once I get those pumpkin pies in the oven tomorrow! I think I look forward to my pumpkin pie as much as the turkey...who am I kidding...the pumpkin pie has my heart ~ hee!!

Are you ready for our new cozy autumn palette from ColourQ? Here's a little inspiration from me.

I did a some watercolor smooshing to get a rusty background. I stamped the wheat (Magenta) with brown ink then used a Tombow marker and water brush to color it in. I die cut this panel with a PTI Mat Stack die. More of the wheat was stamped onto a kraft panel along with an Impress sentiment. After everything was put together I added Wink of Stella to the wheat  bundles.

Okay, now it's your turn to get inky and link up for this week's challenge! Have a splendid day friends! ~Lisa
