It's a RED day!

By the end of my crafty time today, I realized how much I liked RED (lol). I'm enjoying creating papercraft samples for a local Michael's store here in Halifax, and it's always fun to combine that with blog challenges, where I find so much inspiration. There are some beautiful new Anna Griffin and K & Co Christmas papers in stock right now, so I'll be posting several papercrafts with those during the next few days.

I used damask paper on this card, which was created for the following challenges:

Created by Hand (theme is friendship or words of love; I gold embossed this beautiful calligraphy stamp from Quietfire Design)

Creative Cottage (use embossing)

Fab and Funky (keep it simple)

Moxie Fab World (use damask)



This one was done for the following challenges:

Art Journey (romance; I used two Art Journey stamps (the rose from this BEAUTIFUL new plate, and the hand from the Writing plate), a Hero Arts sentiment stamp, and a Stampin'Up script background stamp)

One Stop and Wee Memories challenges (free theme)

Our Creative Corner (a yummy pic for inspiration...beige and white predominate)

Isn't this May Arts ribbon GORGEOUS!? It's the most sumptious velvet!



This next card was SUCH fun to make! I used fabulous sketch # 87 from CPS (too bad I used the sketch from LAST week...lol...). The gold embossed sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts. I used red and white to meet the current Etsy inspired challenge, which was to choose something from this delightful Etsy shop as inspiration. This artist creates the most beautiful, whimsical art pieces! I used the red and off-white colour scheme from this print as my inspiration.


Here's another one with the luscious new Christmas papers and embellishments at Michael's. I used the layout/design of the Case Study challenge card posted for inspiration.


Thanks so very much for stopping by today! I wish you a creative week, doing what you love best!
