Hello and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you will spend your day with friends and family? 

Not to mention all the yummy food and football :) ....just in case you have time to craft....come and join us for the newest Inspired By Challenge!


Here is this weeks #IB197 inspiration photo...

                                

I was inspired by bouquet and the colors.

Even though I didn't opt for flowers I pulled out the Winterberry Bouquet Set from The Greetery along with the matching dies. I decided to go for a CAS look...since I was in a time crunch.

TIC TAC TOE CHALLENGE - #TTTC141 MISTER GINGERBREAD

Hello again!

Stopping by with my second project of the day...the new Tic Tac Toe Challenge .......



Here is this weeks #TTC141 board .....


I chose the top row over - STITCHING, FELT AND GINGERBREAD.

I bought this super cute PTI - Stitched Gingerbread Mister Die many, many years ago and I finally had the chance to use it with this weeks challenge!!! How stinkin' cute is he??? Papertrey Ink is selling some pretty awesome Felt as well. Everything came together pretty quickly... next I attached Mister Gingerbread to a little Gift Bag and added a Christmas Tag...voila!

Hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration so far? I'm probably already in a food coma ...LOL! Now it's your turn to try this board and we are looking forward to seeing your fun ideas! ~SL~

INSPIRED BY - #IB196C Neighbor Tag

Hello and happy Thursday again!

Can't believe we are already more than halfway through November...this month has been a blur for sure! 

Are you guys gearing up for Thanksgiving? What's your favorite dish/dessert to make? Mine is a German Apple Cake...can't wait to make it and eat it :) !!!

Anyways, we are back with a brand new Inspired By Challenge.....



Here is this weeks inspiration photo for the - #IB196C....

                                  

     My inspiration came from the houses, trees and the colors.

I decided to dig out an older 2015 PTI - Petite Places: Holiday Lane Set along with the matching dies. The circle background was created by adding watercoloring with the Zig Kuretake Gansai colors. Next I cut out another white circle and trimmed it to create a "little mountain". For the "snow effect" I added some Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. To finish the card off I added some PTI - Classic Kraft DP, the PTI - Pure Poppy Saddle Stich Ribbon and a Button.  

Please make sure to check out all the fabulous ideas the Inspired By Team has created! Looking forward to seeing your ideas! ~SL~

INSPIRED BY - #IB191 CHRISTMAS SHOES

Howdy stampin' friends!

Thursday has snuck up on us again and it's time for a new Inspired By Challenge - #IB191 ...



My card was inspired by the Bear print, the Blue Scarf, the Christmas theme plus this weeks Sketch.


When I saw this fun bear print I had to pull our the super cute SU - Penguin Playmates DP (from the "Sale-a-bration" Brochure 2021) along with the blue striped DP from the same collection. I simply cut one of the bigger bears out and supported it with some CS in the back, since the DP is very thin. Next I blended some SU - Soft Sky Ink onto the Circled CS and stamped the Stars (or are the Snowflakes?) from the SU - Penguin Place Set. The bear was centered and I added the fun sentiment from the same stamp set. At last I added the SU - Silver Plateada Ribbon and the tiny Silver Pearls...voila!
