Guesting at TAWS!

Hello and welcome! Ready for a bit of fun today? It's coming to you in the form of some super cute ornament stamps from The Alley Way Stamps {Fa-La-La} set! This card completes my guest designing term with TAWS for the month of November. I'm so very grateful to Chrissie and Alison for having me and have enjoyed working with their wonderful product!

This one is pretty self explanitory, but I'll give you a quick run down. The ornaments and sentiment were all stamped on a kraft panel, then adhered to a red card base. I paper pieced some of the noses and popped them up. One was filled with glossy accents. Several of the tiny starburst images were stamped then topped with Stickles. Next came the glitter and finally a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins. Simple and fun, gotta love that!

Thanks a bunch for popping by today ~Lisa


cQc #269 ~ Thankful for You!

Hi there friends!! Can you believe Thanksgiving is just two days aways! I need to get busy with my dinner preparations. It will be a much smaller group for us this year. We're down to 7 from our usual 12 or 14. But I enjoy cooking this special dinner every year, all of my family's favorite traditional dishes. What a blessed day it will be to have our little Sweet P with us for her first Thanksgiving! I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon yesterday with her and her beautiful mommy ~ love love my girls!!

I'm sharing one more Thanksgiving card for the final ColourQ challenge of November. And what a darling inspiration photo Arielle found for us! The Tag You're It challenge was my inspiration this week. I'll also be linking this one up at the Catered Crop. Did you hear that Linda has decided to close the doors on her challenge? Retirement is keeping her pretty busy! 

I've let several stamps from Precious Remembrance Shop's {Fall Colors} be the stars of this card.  Orange Twine and Marshmallow Sequins (4mm & 6mm) from Pretty Pink Posh provided me with the perfect embellishments. I decided to mimic the grid pattern of my stamping with an embossing folder from DeNami Design. And that just about does it, hope you like it! 

Have a delightful day ~Lisa


Precious Remembrance Shop ~ Design it Monday!

Hello hello! Did you have a good weekend? How does starting your week off with a little trip over to the Precious Remembrance Shop blog sound? It's my turn to share a post there today and I would love for you to check it out!

Wishing you a wonderful day ~Lisa


DeNami Design ~ Silent Night!

Good day sweet blogging friends! Today I am bringing you another of the newly released Christmas stamps from DeNami Design. This one, a sentiment, happens to be from my favorite Christmas song Silent Night Holy Night.

I wanted to make something a bit more elegant with this stamp. I began the card with some generation stamping of the Medium Pine. Next I heat embossed the new Silent Night Holy Night sentiment with Versa Mark ink and gold embossing powder. I added my stamped panel to a shimmery gold panel and then to a white card base. And finally I sprinkled about several 4mm Metallic Gold Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Quickly created and flat for mailing, a win win!!

I'm happy you stopped by today, be blessed ~Lisa


DeNami Design ~ Merry Christmas!

Hi there! I have another card today featuring yet another of the new DeNami Design Christmas stamps. This one is called Penguins in Igloo and it's super duper cute!

I've added a piece of patterned paper to a white card base after die cutting the bottom edge with a Stitched Borders 1 Die from Pretty Pink Posh. Next I stamped the new image onto a scrap of white cardstock and trimmed it out. I stamped portions of the igloo again on scraps so they could be popped up. After coloring my penguins I added the image to the card with foam tape. I just love the way this previously released Whimsical Merry Christmas sentiment looks here! To finish things off I added some Stickles to the Santa hats, igloo and star centers.

Thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me! I appreciate it! ~Lisa


DeNami Design New Release Christmas Stamps!

Hi there, I'm back this morning sharing another of the DeNami Design new release stamps. I think this cutie is perfect for gift tags! I mean just look at the name {No Peeking Chickie Circle}...see what I mean!!

What a I love about this stamp is that the center circle surrounding the chickie is the perfect size for a one inch circle punch. I stamped the image twice punching one chickie out and popping it up with a thick foam dot. Next I die cut the entire image with a larger stitched circle. I added the Stitched Circle image that fits just inside the die cut stitches. I was a wee bit off on my placement, but I think it still looks cute!

Once all of my stamping and coloring was done I added everything to a pair of large stitched tags (Stitched Duos) by Pretty Pink Posh. A little grosgrain ribbon and a snippet of twine complete my design!

Have yourselves a wonderful day ~Lisa
