Card Recognition

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

hi, friend...

hi, friend.... playing along with the Ellen Huston birthday party with the stamps I won from her last challenge.  Every since I saw the Jennifer McGuire video (which I CASEd her project) I wanted this stamp set....  And the tag is another one for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, inspired by Day #21.

camper, reindeer, glamping tent and cocktails!

Happy Monday!  I've been busy in my craft room...  the first card is to help restock the Inn Town Campground camp store supply, using the CAS(E) this sketch as an inspiration.  My second tag is for this week's PTI Make It Monday, make a photo ornament-- so I used part of the camgpround's brochure with the photo of a glamping tent by my friend Kial.  My reindeer tag is for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas tags inspired by Day #20.  And my final project is for the Viva la Verve November sketch, I used a coffee sentiment for a cocktail card.

Lots of holiday tags

Happy Holidays my friend....  I've gotten a little carried away playing along with Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas tags-- but I'm excited to rediscover holiday stamps I'd forgotten about... always good when you dust off your stash.  The top tag was inspired by Day #18 (although I used all Lawn Fawn goodies).

Inspired by Day #17, I don't have a shaker tag die, but I created one and added the confetti to a clear pillow box.

Inspired by Day #19.

This tag was inspired by Karen's tag on Day #14, although I have to admit I like hers better then mine.

This is a double whammy tag... I used inspiration from Day #12, loved the large snowflake behind the snowman and patterned paper... AND it also uses the current Reverse Confetti sketch.

Inspired by Day #11

Inspired by Kim's tag on Day #19.

Coffee is always a good idea

Happy Saturday crafty friends!  I'm back up on the Coffee Lovers blog with this CAS card playing with a few new MFT goodies.  I also use the sketch and color challenge for a source of inspiration.

A gift from me to you, inspired by the tag on Day #9.

warm winter wishes and more

Happy Monday!  I've made a bunch of tags for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags, but I'll spread them out, so you're not completely overwhelmed.  My first tag was inspired by Day #5, to add a bit of texture to my snowflake I used the nuvo mousse and then die cut it out-- it made a bit of a mess, but it's got a bit of a sheen to it.  I used the scraps and die cut out scallops, so there's a consistency in the texture.  Because it's Monday (and I have a lot to do), I'm playing along with the PTI Create With Us, using Stephanie's card as my source of inspiration.

And finally one more tag, using Kim's tag from Day #13 as an inspiration.

happy new year and snowman tag

Happy Sunday!  I missed playing along with the PTI Make It Monday this week b/c I was in North Carolina at a conference, so I'm "late"...  and since I'm super terrible at printing photos, I cheated and used part of the Inn Town Campground's brochure (which happens to have a family photo by my friend Lenka as part of the rack card).  So while I'd love to say I'm going to make holiday cards, this might be the only personalized one I make... and why not be extra on top of it and make it a new year's card?  Fun to make more of a collage style card (using a number of PTI goodies).  And my second project is another tag for Tracey's 25 Tags of Christmas, inspired by Day #12.
