An early Christmas card share :)

I know it's only August-
much too early to be posting Christmas cards-
but I have a cute little gift card holder that I wanted to share. :)
 
This is a card I made for a recent card that didn't get picked up.
 
 
Love this stamp set from Paper Smooches! 
I paired it with papers from Crate Paper
and a Maya Road kraft snowflake.
 
I like this design for the coffee cup-
I think I will try it with other shapes in place of the snowflake
(maybe a circle or heart?)
 
Thanks for visiting today! :)

Sigh...You are Fabulous.

What?  Two shares in two days? 
That's a record for me this summer. :)
 
This is a "reject" from a recent call that is a bit different from my usual style. 
It was my first time using gold paint,
but with gold trending right now, I wanted to give it a try. 
I love all of the Pinterest pins that combine pastels with gold,
so I thought it would look great on a card.
 
 
The chipboard sticker and papers are from Basic Grey's Knee Highs collection, sentiment stamp is from Unity, and that fun gold paper fringe is from K & Co.
 
Thanks for popping by!

hello. :)

So, I got a not-so-subtle reminder that I haven't updated the blog for a while!
LOL
(Thanks, Steph!)
 
I have made a few cards over my summer vacation,
but haven't taken the time to share many. 
Sorry!
 
Here's a bright one for you today.
I am in love with neon right now!
I just got the new neon ink pads from Hero Arts, too, so you'll probably need sunglasses to read my blog before the summer's over. ;)
 
 
I cut this fun kraft and neon background using the Creative Cards cartridge from Cricut. 
Fun, huh?
The stamp is from Studio G.  I stamped it with Versamark
and embossed with black embossing powder.
 
I'm hoping that I have some time today to get inky.  Happy Tuesday! :)

Some Counterfeit Cards

School is out for me ow, so I get more scrappy time! :)
 
My first thought was to dive into my June Counterfeit Kit.  After all, I am guest designing this month, but so far, I have only done the required projects!  Time to have some FUN with my kit!
 
So far, I had only made one layout and one card.  I'm not sure if what I have left for kit materials would really work for any of my photos  right now, so I focused on creating some cards, which I always seem to run out of!  One is even for a challenge!  Go, me! Ha!
 
First up is my take on Laurel Seabrook's Inspired By Challenge #79.  Here is the Pinterest image that inspired my card:
 
and here's my card, inspired by the grid layout, the repeated hearts, and the banner shapes:
The next three cards were made from my kit, also, but were just for fun. :)


 
Thanks for popping by today!  If you haven't already created your own Counterfeit Kit for June, please visit the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog and see our inspiration kit for this month.  We also have a wonderful new sponsor this month, Little Blue Button Stamps.  We'd love to have you play along!
