Happy Birthday Circles

Today I'm posting my take on the our Sketch over at Stick it Down! This is such a fun sketch, I stayed pretty close to the original idea of the sketch, as it gave a perfect reason to use specific circle set from Catherine Pooler. I haven't used this set much since I've purchased it. 

Here is my card...

Just had to pick some colors and I choose blues and green to keep it more masculine. Love all the fun and dimension on this one layer card!

Joy Clair- New Release Blog Hop

It's time for the new release for Joy Clair and there are so many great sets!!! Hope you are as excited about them as we are and have enjoyed the hop! For  the release hop I'm using Creeping it Real with a dip dyed technique to make bookmarks. 

I used watercolor paper with a hand torn edge at the bottom. I slowly layered the color on making sure the color was more concentrated at the bottom to create an ombre look... as if the paper were dipped in paint a few times. 


I then trimmed the paper in half to create two book marks. Used the witch image from Creeping it Real and heat embossed it on the bookmarks. I added the watercolor layer onto black cardstock that had a little bit of washi tape added to the top and bottom. Punched a hole at the top for my ribbon and twine. I decided I needed a little something else on them, so I die cut some bats our of Rinea foil and adhered the to finish the bookmarks.


Here is the list for the hop... if you haven't checked them all out you can find them below! Hope you've been commenting for a chance to win a $25 gift card to the Joy Clair store

ASTM #303 Holiday



Today's card is a Holiday card for Addicted to Stamps and More's holiday theme challenge. To see what the rest of the DT has came up with this time check out the blog here! 


The card was simple I knew I wanted to use some Catherine Pooler's Foundation Box (Retired, but I'll link what I can), but wasn't sure how I wanted to pull it together. I found a sketch I liked and rolled with it. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. Love it when I start getting my Holiday cards going early! 


Don't forget to stop by the blog and play with this weeks Holiday challenge, I can't wait to see what you share with us. Thanks as always for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment and follow the blog for updates with new posts!
