Hello everyone!!  I’m super excited to be here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!!  This is our third challenge and we couldn’t wait to share our love for Concord and 9th!!

Exciting right!!  I think so!!

So without further-a-do, take a look at our challenge theme:


Take a look at my card:


For this challenge, shape cards were in order.  I love making cards that are odd shaped from time to time. For the sparkle and shine I foiled the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.  Super doper easy!!

These cards could be turned into tags as well.  Just punch a hole and write on the inside of the tag.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

Distress Techniques Day 1

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with some distress tags from the Creative Chemistry 103 class.

I have to thank my design team member for encouraging me to take this 3rd class by Tim Holtz.  I’ve taken the first two back when they came in 2012 and 2013, and wasn’t sure what I would learn in this class that would be different.

I have to admit, I’ve learned quit a bit.  So I’m thankful for the push.

Day one we learned a couple of different techniques!!

Here are a couple of them:

  1. Distress DIY Ombre – my butterfly tags
  2. Distress Highlight Stamping – the face card and the leaf tag
  3. Distress Off-Set Stamping – the flower card

I love how these tags turned out.  I can’t wait to see what the other days will bring.

Distress Ink Recipe + A Leaf Mosaic Die

Hello everyone!!!  I’m here with Top Dog Dies!!  I’ve showcased this die before but I love it so much that I wanted to show it again in a different colors.

The difference here, I used Shari Carroll’s Distress Ink Recipe Cards to choose my colors.  When I saw these recipe cards I knew I wanted to try the different colors.



I went to with recipe card #4! I don’t have Peeled Paint so I substituted it with Mowed Lawn.

Here is what my ink blending looks like:

Here is my card:

Hello Fall (TDD)

Oh man, Shari was on point with these colors, even with my substitution.  I love how these colors look together!

They look especially beautiful!!

I’m also participating in Jennifer McGuire’s Share Handmade Kindness Challenge.


I created this card to give away to Tracy a crafty friend on Instagram.  Her handle is @littlesavedgirl.  She is super sweet and never fails to leave me awesome comments.  I hope she likes it!!

I hope you enjoyed seeing a different vision of this card again.

Thanks for stopping by!



Top Dog Dies – Hello Fall

Hello everyone!!!  I’m here with Top Dog Dies!!  I’m here showcasing one of their new dies that was released a couple of weeks ago!!

Lets jump right in!

Today I’m working with the Top Dog Dies Leaf Mosaic Die!! It’s a super doper cute die set and the possibility are endless!!

TDD Leaf Mosaic Die

Take a look at my card that I created with this die:

Hello Fall
This card was super doper easy to create. I took a long piece of card stock and did some ink blending with Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door.

Then I die cute the Leaf Mosaic out of the ink blended paper.

After that,  I die cut the word hello a couple of times out of black cardstock and then I layered them on top of each other. I adhered it to the front of my card.

Easy Breeze!!
