Dear Santa,.....

Dear Santa, I have been a good girl this year. Promise. Isn't this kiddo the sweetest? I just love her and colored her up in beautiful shades of yellow. Now that thanksgiving is over and everyone is likely to be making their Christmas lists (a.k.a. I want some craft materials, lol!!) I made this sweet card for all of you who are writing your list to "Santa"

Here's a close up to show some the stunning papers used on this card. Each paper was chosen due to it's weight and lovely texture.
You can click the name of the paper to see a sample sheet at Paper Temptress. Here's a little look at the thought process when I am gathering papers to make my cards:

Vintage Silver Lustre-for this card I am using the text weight since the paper is punched and used in the background. This paper has a stunning texture (see the sample) and absorbs ink very well. You can stamp on it and the ink will sink in. The paper I used was silver, but I changed its color for this card by smearing a coating of black ink! It makes the paper a wonderful shimmery shade that just can't be caught in a still photo.

Yellow Crepe Ruche-I just love the thickness and opposing texture that this paper has to the Vintage Silver paper. You can really see the texture of this paper in the main picture.

Black Felt Grande-wonderful background texture and excellent for card backgrounds. It gives the third level of dimension for the card.

Heavenly White-excellent for stamping on, especially if you want to use Alcohol Ink makers like Copics.

Hope you have a great day today! I must say that crafting paper is always on the top of my list. I have a feeling that Santa will be getting an email with some goodies from Paper Temptress on it. Cheers Everyone!

Fall is in the air...

I am guessing for much of the United States (and the top hemisphere of the world) that winter is actually in the air, but for those of us in Texas it's fall that is starting to be in the air. Now actually much of last week, it didn't even feel like fall. It was much of the upper 70s even. But the cooler weather is starting to peek around and show up!Here's a great witchy stamp that just came out at the Queen Kat store from artist Regan Kubecek called witchy rubber stamp. She has a bunch of delightful stamps to check out. I made this witch flying over the clouds with the leaves of fall floating with her.

Guest Artist: Trish

I got the most delightful surprise in my mailbox last week. A wonderful handmade card from overseas! One of the prize winners, Trish of Hillside Crafts, from my recent contests received a beautiful stamp from Addicted to stamps and used it to create this stunning card for me! WOW. I wish you could see it in person, the frame is metalic, the roses and ribbons are done with a lustre coating on them and the fairy is painted in metallics. It's stunning. Holding the card at an angle shows a lovely glimmer in all the colors.She also sent me a wonderful treat! a brand new set of rubber stamps and even sweeter--one of the kindest notes. It was such a day brightener. Thanks so much Trish. I hope my blog readers enjoy your card too! If you want to see more of Trish's creations, she has a blog at Hillside Crafts.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Autumn Harvest

Here's a stunning ching chou kuik image called Autumn Harvest. I just love it. I colored her in rich fall colors of purple and blue and then found matching cardstock to go with it. I had a wonderful fall theme embellishment set with beautiful autumn leaves and pumpkin accents.

It also came with a paperclip with the word "Fall" on it. I clipped it to the top of my colored image and added a highlight behind it. The shimmery papers all sparkle in the light. This stamp comes on Plate #57. Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving this year. I bet you can all guess my favorite. Yep, it's pumpkin. Pumpkin ANYTHING--pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bagels, pumpkin muffins,....ahhhh.

The Sweet Pea store just added NEW images from artist Elisabeth Bell! Yippee!! That's always something that gets me excited. Click here to stop by the store and see the new images. They are also having a huge thanksgiving and christmas sale (click here).

Have a wonderful holiday!

Squigglefly Challenge

It's time for a Squigglefly Challenge! This week's challenge is to follow a sketch. I used a wonderful Digi-Stamp from them called Angel Maisy. She's super cute. On my sentiment, I added a single word brad that says "Faith", but you could also do many things such as handwritten text, a sticker of words, a rubber stamp, digi-stamp, typed up text, or anything thing else you can imagine!Go over to the Squigglefly challenge blog and check out the sketch you should follow. You will notice that I turned the sketch sideways when I did mine. If you use a Squigglefly image, you are eligible for a wonderful prize! If you don't have any Squigglefly images, you can buy one at their store. These images you simply print out on your own computer. They work great and are resizeable! If you would like to try one out first, get one of their free images! You can even use a freebie image in their contest.

Teddy Bear Gift

Here's a cute gift bag that I made for my cousin's daughter Ayana. She just turned 9 years old last week. I went to visit her and took her a gift in this sweet gift bag. She loved the adorable saying on it.

Here's some more detailed photos so you can see a close up on it.

I had the cutest saying "I love you beary much!" that I stamped as the border and some stunning lace that I got while visiting Turkey that I added as decor to the bag.

If you have been visiting the blog before, then you may recall me sharing some of Ayana's artwork. She's becoming a crafter too!

Make your Christmas Packages Special

Here's a wonderful way to spice up those store bought bags, just add some handmade joy on top of them! If you have time, you can even use your Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool to cut and create your own mini boxes and bags for your gifts. Here's a quick cutie that I came up with using one of the newest Humphrey Christmas images called Santa and Rudolph.
This stamp set also comes with a wonderful "Merry Christmas" phrase, which I put on the gift tag of this package. The adorable fiber used here is actually string with tiny beads twirls with clear tinsel. It adds a wonderful snow-like effect.

Have fun decorating your Christmas Bags! Pull out those old bags from last year and cover them up with adorable designs from Crafter's Companion to show everyone around you what you can make!

Thinking of you

Here's a stunning image from artist Conie Fong of Sweet Pea stamps. I just love her work. This image is beautiful and I was feeling very RED when I colored it. She has several brand new stamps coming out at the Sweet Pea store and all week her images will be featured on the Sweet Pea blog by all the different artists.

This image is called "The Arrival of Spring" and it is sold individually or on Plate #185. I used several stunning shades of red copic markers to color her. I also used some beautiful lace that I got in Istanbul, Turkey. The richness of the red so matches the card.

Mushroom Girl

Here's an amazing image from Lili of the Valley. I love their stamps (I say that a lot, don't I?) This stamp is too cute! It's one of those, the first time you see their website, you know you have to order from them! (Even when they are outside the USA)
I also added some stunning lace that I bought while I was in Turkiye this summer (can you tell what I spent all my vacation money on?) My hubby, isn't he the best? what man is gonna send you half way around the world to visit your friends, see the world's history and come home with a suitcase of laces&ribbons? my hubby, that's who!

Perfect Layers

Here's a stunning image using a stamp from Conie Fong of Sweet Pea stamps and some amazing papers of Paper Temptress. This stamp is called Daisy. I did some wonderful die cutting and layering of beautiful papers to make this card have a great look. I used a border punch and two different types of spellbinder die cuts.

This project uses wonderful papers from Paper Temptress including Sunshine Yellow Columns, Neenah Classic Crest (Solar White), Sparkle Vermilion, and Heavenly White. I think all the different shapes and colors in this project all come together very nicely. The brightness makes me smile at a time of year when the outside is looking more and more dreary.

There's a great texture to this card because the columns on the yellow topped by the die cuts and the punched border add layers of depth. The red cardstock also has the most beautiful shimmery accents to it. It's a perfect little touch that makes the recipient go "ooo" and "aaah."

There's wonderful blog candy you can sign up on Friday's posting (11/11/11). If you haven't signed up yet, scroll down a couple of entries and check it out!

Cheers, Holley

Epilepsy Awareness Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to Holley's Blog. Nov is Epilepsy Awareness Month and today is a blog hop among several artists sharing their stories and their artwork. I know that many of my regular readers know that I have Epilepsy and in Feb 2010 had two brain surgeries. These surgeries stopped my seizures and I am happy to say that I haven't had a seizure since.

I made this wonderful card in honor of the occasion as Purple is the Epilepsy Awareness color and the saying is so true for me "Today is the First Day of Forever."
I started writing up my story and it took several pages to write, since I included my background, I think this will help many people who have seizures now that are uncontrolled. I am sure they can so relate to how my life was and then hear about the surgery and how I am doing now. So here's the link to my full story, just click this link and read my full story about Epilepsy: CLICK HERE

Thanks for coming to the blog hop today. Epilepsy Awareness is near and dear to me. I am giving away some wonderful blog candy today. One prize is a Brand New Inkadinkado Christmas theme stamp set (see photo below). Leave a comment HERE for your chance to win the stamp set. The stamp set winner will be drawn NEXT week on Friday. So please tell your friends to come by the blog hop as well to support Epilepsy Awareness. The next blog on the hop is Ashley, her posting will start on Friday 11/11/11. Here's the next blog:
Thanks for stopping by!

Tickled Pink Fairy

Here's my card for the Tickled Pink Challenge this week. One of my favorite techniques is to use a mono-tone theme, which is to take a single color and use every type of that color over and over again. So for a Tickled Pink stamp as delightful as this, why not pinks all over? I used three shades of pink papers, pink ink, pink fiber, five shades of pink copic markers and here we are:Isn't she a beauty? She's the Little Pinkettes Fairy Coraline. Super Adorable! Thanks for stopping by, be sure to stay tuned this week. We are having a special blog hop on the 10th to celebrate Epilepsy Awareness and tell my story with Blog candy and all!

Ivy Beauty

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a treat from Crafter's Companion. I recently got several brand new sets from them that are about to be released in their store. These sets are from the Sheena Douglass Paint Fusion line. I did a card here using the "Ivy" set.
First I started on a chipboard flower shaped button and did a crackle background in white. Then I used the Sheena Douglass stamp set to layout my painting pattern. Her paint sets have "practice sheets" so it's very helpful for someone like me (who has NO painting experience). I was able to create this card, i.e. practice painting on the laminated sheet, paint the ivy on my embellishment, and then make the card in no time at all!

I used the great rubber stamps that this set comes with as wonderful background stamps on the card itself. So the stamps sold are very versatile. Several Paint Fusion stamp sets will be coming out in holiday theme, so be sure to check back at the Crafter's Companion store for them.

Crafter's Companion Products used here:
Paint Fusion Stamp Set- IVY
Paint Fusion Video Instructional DVD
Set of Royal and Langnickel Brushes
Green Glue
Inkssentials Non-stick Craft Sheet
Pearlescent Green Paper
White Ink

Have a great weekend!

"When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleem, may luck be your on Halloween." I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween season, now we are off to the Fall time!

Cheers, Holley

Crafter's Companion USA Contest: November

The month is new and so the contest at the Crafter's Companion USA blog! This month's contest is to celebrate your favorite holiday. I am guessing with fall here and cool weather coming in which holiday may be on many people's brain but for me, Love is always in the air at my house, so I chose Valentines. It's not a holiday that's hugely celebrated on its particular day, but a feeling that is there everyday. Of course it is celebrated, but more importantly, it's always celebrated. It's not a day that's calendar marked to remind my husband to tell me he loves me. He always does. It makes me jump for joy and be so happy after more than a dozen years. Hmmm, maybe I should make him a special cake today, just because....Go over to the Crafter's Companion blog and check out the artists examples and then make your card. Best of luck! I hope one of my followers wins the challenge. The prize this month is a set of wonderful stamps, I mean a WHOLE bunch of sets of wonderful stamps, the brand new line-up of Humphrey stamps (there's a pic on my side bar). The winner gets all SIX brand new stamp sets, now this is a contest you wanna play in!!
