The Paper Door with holidays elves



Ok, I admit it...I love this Paper Door Card just as much as the last one.  It was so much fun!  And those faces kill me.  I know Paper Door is suppose to be easy and Clean and Simple.   But when I opened the box my brain when in all directions.  So there had to be a compromise.  I did two project that were very simple and those took me the longest to do...like forever!  Then I made two cards that were more not CAS.  Those were really fast.  What is wrong with my brain?  Don't answer that!

My point is this, Paper Door and what you get inside can be a easy as you want and for the very beginning crafter.  It is also for the more seasoned crafter.  That is what I wanted to show this month.
Don't think of it as a beginners box.  Think of it as OH, I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT I CAN COME UP WITH!  Paper Door is an crafting adveture for sure.

The only thing I used that wasn't in the kit was a paper cutter, die machine, adhesive and my markers.  You know the basics.  These little elves would also be so adorable colored in pencils.  And what a wonderful thing to have your kids do.  Make cards for their grandparents.  The options are endles!

Paper Door, Unlock Your Creativity with a stack of elves


Ok seriously, how cute is this!  I know I made it but I just love it!  Just look at these faces, who wouldn't want to color them.  They are the perfect size to stack so I did!  I just love stacked images.
I thing the other thing I like most is the non traditional holiday colors.  I used my two favorite colors together vs the red and green. 

Yup, I am keeping this card for us.  Just so I can display it year after year. It makes me smile and I hope it does you too.

What a Lovely Tree

What A Lovely Tree!

Oh, I had so much fun coloring this image,  Heart Tree Rubber Cling Stamp.  I really just kicked back  and plaid with it.  I did the background first in shades of blues and blue greens with blending solution.
Then the grass, the the tree trunk and branches and the foliage part of the tree.  I left the hearts for last because they are red.  Red is easy to drag into areas you don't want.  So I alsways leave it until last.  

This stamp will be used again.  Which is rare because I rarely color a stamp more than once.  

I think I might do a live coloring of it on Passionate Paper Creations and Friends.  There are a few technigues in here I think would be great for beginners.  And filling the tree with the foliage when it isn't drawn in is fun.

Ornament Background



Another NEW great background from Whimsy and DoveArt.  It's Called Ornament Background.  I did this one in non traditional colors.  I want to another one in no lin coloring and in different colors.  I'm very curious to see what it would look like.  I also thought when I was coloring this, it would be really cool to layer pieces for deminsion.  It would also be a lovely framed so you could bring it out each holiday season.

Whimsy New Digi Release


Welcome Power Poppy's New Digi Release!

Painting Pumpkins




A special note from Marcella: Painted pumpkins — whether given a coat of chalky milk paint in pastel hues, a bold dip with metallic accents, or delicate dots with a fine-tipped brush — are all the rage. Now you can paint the pumpkins in real life AND in your paper crafting process. In this arrangement, I have several pumpkins primed for your special creative touches. Paint pots and brushes await your artwork on the "blank canvas" version or use one of my pre-drawn patterns or jack-o-lantern faces. A series of 4 sentiments ranging from a general Thank You through Halloween and Thanksgiving allows multiple uses for this fresh fall imagery.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.  I even wanted to keep going by adding a few branches of berries and leaves around the pumpkins.
