Wow! Christmas is coming up quick! While I do love many things about Christmas (especially the real reason for the season), the abundance of red is just not my style. So, going with a completely non-traditional color scheme of blues, browns, and golds, I created this watercolor Christmas card set: Since I was creating a card set, I did everything assembly-line style. I started out by stamping the focal image on several pieces of watercolor paper. Next, I added a few highlights with some quick watercolor. I then hand placed a few small star-shaped sequins, […]
Ooooh…isn’t it getting beautiful outside? The leaves are changing colors and the fall weather is finally starting to break through the heat. When I think of fall…I think of food. (Or maybe I just always think of food.) And what is a good meal without some cute decor to spruce up the table?

It’s Tobi here, and today I’m sharing a little treat bag! It’s fun to switch up projects instead of cards-cards-cards. I find it boosts my creativity when I create “projects” and it inspires me to think out of the box.

The twines look so pretty!!
Hello everyone!! This is Amy here to share a fun mini card set I created with an apple theme. It is definitely apple season around here.

I created this mini card set so that I could give them away to my kiddos and hubby as little notes in their bags or other ways….just to let them know that I love them. […]
Hi. I’m so glad you are here! It’s Tifany here and today I wanted to share this card featuring a few of my favorite things – mason jars and twine…and (stamped) flowers. I love using The Twinery’s twine to jazz up real mason jars, and I wanted to give the same feel to this mason jar stamp. Rather than wrapping my twine around the entire card as I often do, I just pierced holes in the card around the rim of the stamped mason jar and threaded some Solid Lilac twine through the holes. I […]
