Watercolor Wreaths

Dawn from WPlus9 constantly amazes me with her watercolor techniques. Her stamps and dies are one of my favorites in the industry, too! The watercolor wreath technique she did in Online Card Classes had me running for my watercolors. Such a beautiful technique for a holiday card. Here are my two cards I created using Woodland Wreaths and other WPlus9 products.

 I hope you all have a wonderful day. We are celebrating my son's first birthday today with a Mickey Mouse party!


Joy Shaker Card

Hi! I'm back tonight with a shaker card for Day 2 of Holiday Card Workshop. Today's lesson was interactive cards. I must admit, they are a bit time consuming, but SO worth it! The results are awesome and shaker cards are super fun to make.

Have a great day! 


Cardinal Love

Oh my goodness, how I adore these birds! I have cardinals in my backyard that come right up to my kitchen bird feeder. The females are pretty, but the males - GORGEOUS! (Yes, the males are red, the females are brown.) A little bird lesson for today.  Ha!

I am posting a card I created for Day 1 of the Online Card Class Holiday Card Workshop. LOVE these classes! They really get my booty into the craft room and create with tons of inspirational videos and tutorials.
The cardinal is from Stacy's Stamps and is colored with red Copic markers. There is also some red Wink of Stella pen on him, but it's hard to tell in the photo. The dies are from Simon Says Stamp. Just wanted to keep this one simple, since today's class was all about mass production.

I also wanted to announce the winner of the Create and Craft Announcement. Random.org chose #2, which was Christina. Christina, please email me at erinleecreative at gmail dot com so I can get your information to Create and Craft for your winning package!

Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 3

Hi everyone! It's the final day of the Lil' Inker Designs Release Hop. I hope you all are enjoying the projects we are sharing using these fabulous new products.

Today, I am dreaming of snow! We don't get much snow here in Dallas, if we are lucky, maybe one or two days in the winter but it's a rare occasion so I always dream of having a white Christmas. Instead, I suppose I'll just create cards with snowflakes!

Don't forget to leave those comments for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the LID store and be sure to snag your favorites in the store.

Your next stop on the hop is Jen! Have fun!


Lil' Inker Designs Release Day 2

Hey everyone! Welcome back to day two of the Lil' Inker Designs Release Hop! So happy to see you back. I have two cards for you today, a Congratulations card and a Christmas card. Two totally different looks, one awesome release!
 The speech bubbles and matching stamp set is so much fun to create quick and clever cards.
My favorite thing about this Baubled Christmas Tree die? You can use the little negative shapes to embellish your card like I did with the gold circles. 

I love these products so much this release. Don't forget to leave those comments for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the LID store and be sure to snag your favorites in the store.

Lil Inker Designs November Release: Day 1

So first up for my first card in the release hop, the donut stamps and dies are so totally scrumptious, don't you agree?!
Don't you just want to eat them? Glossy accents is my friend on these donuts. This set would be perfect for teacher gifts! I was thinking a Dunkin Donuts gift card in the Gift & Note Card Holder. I love how you can use these seasonal stars on your everyday projects, too!

Simon Says Stamp Cold Hands, Warm Heart Blog Hop

Wow. So incredibly thrilled to be joining this talented group of designers to showcase the AMAZING new Simon Says Stamp release, Cold Hands, Warm Heart. These products are all seriously adorable, so be sure to check out all the products in this release as soon as you are done with this inspiring hop!

I have 4 cards for you today. I couldn't stop playing! I hope you enjoy.
Gold with a bright accent color is totally my thing. I decided to hand cut some of the tiny gold trees as part of the shaker card filler to tie it all in. This new tree background is nothing short of amazing and would be equally cool watercolored, too!

Next up, I have a super fun and bright card using the Four Trees Stencils. These are so cute and fun to play with.

This background die is just simply gorgeous in whatever color you die cut it. It is so versatile!

Last up, I have some fun skates for you!

For a chance to win an amazing Simon Says Stamp Goodie Bag full of fun Simon treats, be sure to leave comments at each stop on the hop. The giveaways for the prize pack will close at 1:00pm EST on Friday, October 10, 2014.
