Visit the Treehouse!

This set is an autoship from HSN that LDRS Creative offered a while back - it came with the stamps and coordinating dies.  I completely fell in love with the little doors that open and the little critters and finally had time to color it up.  I still have 2 other sets to do - YAY!

The background was created using Spectrum Noir Harmony Water-Reactive Ink Grasshopper and Baby Blue, along with MFT stencils.

The tree and critters were colored using Spectrum Noir Illustrators:
EB2, 4, 7
RB1, 2
GY 2, 3
BT3, 9
IG2, 3, 4, 6
LG1, 3
JG1, 3

I'm featured on the Some Odd Girl blog today with the Aquarius digital stamp.  She is colored using Spectrum Noir Illustrators, if you are interested in the colors used please email me.  This is a super simple card, but I'm liking super simple lately!

The Big Score!

So I got out my Crafter's Companion Big Score board and DVD and made this accordion file.  I am not adept at paper folding - never ask me to gift wrap! The tutorial was easy to follow and the results are fab.  I can't wait to make all of the boxes and goodies on the DVD.

I used some beautiful A4 Crafter's Companion paper and then added Velcro so it will shut tight. 

Looking to purchase this visit HSN!
You will love it!

Old Guys Rule!

This is one of my favorite stamps from Art Impressions because it reminds me of vacations.  I always see retired gentlemen sitting on benches waiting on their partners to finish shopping or just enjoying what strolls by.
