Make It Monday #228: Pearlized Blending

Sometimes you have a fun idea and it just doesn't turn out, but you make something work =)
I made a few tags like this with a detailed nighttime sky:

Then it was time to pearlize that sky! and...I lost my sky detail!
It was a pretty and shiny but not quite a sky anymore. Walk away for the craft table!

So the next day thought of placing a snowflake on it and made it work:

It made a better snowy sky for this snowflake.
I have not done much blending or much with my Perfect Pearls so this was all a learning process! 
Now I know a little more. Would't it be fun to be in your craft room 'messing up' all day =)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great afternoon!

"It's the most wonderful...type of card to make"
I blame my love for all things Christmas on my name =)

Here was our festive Christmas inspiration:

And I took it quite literal:

It was very fun. I wish I would have had the die for the leaves, but oh well! I still know how to use scissors =)
Hope you have a wonderful blog hop.
Thanks for stopping by!


Make It Monday #227

Focal Clusters

Oh my this was so fun! I loved trying focal clusters. Thank you Lexi for the neat idea. 
First we were to play with some cluster ideas:

First I played with 'Desktop Design'

Then I had to try 'Wee Folk'

Last I combined a few sets to make some Christmas cards:

As you can see I was addicted to this technique =)
I would still be stamping and making cards if the baby wasn't ready to get up and the boss wasn't coming over for dinner!

I've enjoyed seeing what you ladies have clustered!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


Create Along With Us: October 2015

Create Along With Us

It has been so fun to see all the beautiful Christmas cards!
My husband has been giving me a hard time for listening to a little Christmas music while I craft =)

I was inspired by many cards, but only had time for one.
Here is Dawn McVey's lovely card:

Mmm the warm sweater background - now all I need is some coco.
I had to make one:

Well sneeking this in with some late night pics =)
Have a good night!
