Gilded Autumn DSP Chocolate Wallet ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a cute decorated chocolate bar wallet, featuring some of the autumn/fall and Thanksgiving themed goodies from the August – December 2020 mini catalog.

I am a big fan of autumn themed colors and ‘things’, pumpkins, leaves, rusty golds and coppers, so I kinda went a bit crazy with this gift~packaged bar of chocolate. Come back tomorrow to see another autumn themed project I designed for a blog hop.

Prized Peony ~ Watercoloring with a Twist Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A little technique that came to me the other day as a happy accident, I love to do water coloring but I had stamped my image in the  water-based Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I could have re-stamped it but I hate waste, so found and empty Water Painter (formally Aqua Painter) filled it with some Isopropanol Alchohol and used my that to ‘watercolor’ my stamped peony.  I had such fun with it I decided to share with a video.

I used the Prized Peony Stamp Set which has stunning images of peonies as well as some greetings in a beautiful script, always a favorite of mine!

Ornate Style with some relaxing Stampin’ Blends Coloring

Welcome back to my corner of the world

As I write this post it is Good Friday – the weather is absolutely beautiful (although a tiny tad chilly) this morning and as I look out,  my garden has patches of color from the early flowering plants.  It makes me think that despite all of the sad and anxious times we are living thru at the moment – nature is carrying on in her own sweet way bringing  fresh growth and color.

My card today carries on this theme – I have chosen to use the big flower stamp from the Ornate Style Stamp Set and some relaxing coloring with Stampin’ Blends.

Happy Tails ~ Just Fur You Card

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

I am a dog person – my puppies, Miss Daisy Mae and CiCi are always close by, sometimes you might hear them when I am making a video ~ one of them usually manages to let out a little ‘woof’ or scratch at the study  door in the middle of recording 🙂

So The Happy Tails Stamp Set with the coordinating Dog Builder Punch is a great set for the fellow dog lovers out there.  There are some cute greetings as well, I have used the ‘Just fur You’ one, I think the ‘Keep Calm and Wag On’ will be useful as well as “So sorry for your Loss’ for those sad times when a beloved pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
