Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI November Blog Hop. We are challenged to create a project based on the inspiration photo shown below:
Here's my interpretation:
I was inspired by the pretty fall foliage so I made a thank you card featuring a fall twig wreath from the PTI Twig Wreath set combined with a die cut / heat embossed sentiment from the PTI Wet Paint Stamp Set:

The challenge is to CASE the Featured Artist or use his or her tag design to inspire you to create a design of your own. Shown below is the beautiful tag made by featured artist Jessica Frost -Balls to be inspired by:
Here's my interpretation:
My tag features a die cut chipboard female deer (doe) that I embossed with pretty gold embossing powder. The tag was stamped/heat embossed using PTI snowflake stamps then inked using Distress Inks.
I also made another similar tag featuring a male deer (buck):
Love all the shimmer and shine in the gold embossing powder:

Winter wishes 23

Hi there! Today I'm honored and thrilled to be a guest featured on the Stamps and Stencils challenge blog. The DT has beautiful projects to share ~ please be sure to visit the Stamps and Stencils challenge blog. The current challenge is all about Pastels. Here's my take on the challenge:
To create my card, I inked the background then randomly stenciled snowflakes.  Next, I randomly heat stamped and heat embossed snowflakes. I embellished the card with a pair of die cut ice skates which I painted and stitched up. I topped it off with die cut sprigs and a fancy bow.
I'm joining along with the following challenges: For sketch inspiration, Fab Friday challenge as well as the Simon Says Stamp: Monday challenge where the theme is It's a Stitch Up: (the laces are all stitched up) and
Merry Monday challenge where the theme is Outdoor Activities:
Thank so much for stopping by!
