I had a bit of trouble photographing this one- I promise it looks better in real life! :)

I love the simplicity of the clean lines in the DKNY look, so I wanted to keep my card pretty CAS.  So glad you could stop by!!

Some of the girls are taking a break this time, but check out what these lovely ladies created:

Altenew February Blog Hop

We have an AMAZING blog hop lined up for the February release!  Please head over to the Altenew Blog to get started!!

Here are a few peeks of my projects....

What are you waiting for? Get hopping! :)



I'm back today with another Runway Inspired Challenge card!

I love how icy this dress seems (even with the flowers).  Perfectly appropriate, since Massachusetts has had  snow piling up for a week now!  Every teacher loves a good snow day now and then, but in the past week we have had 4- that's just crazy.  

I loosely watercolored two yellow chevrons to mimic the lines on the dress.  Since the background has so much blue, I kept the flowers white for contrast.  The sentiment (from Sketchy Cities) was stamped in dark grey ink.

Play along for your chance to win your choice of three Online Card Classes.  This is an awesome prize!!

New Runway Inspired Challenge....yippee!!

I love this girl's outfit, but I really love her handbag!  The stark white stripes look pretty cool against the patterned background, so I decided to go in that direction for my card:

Don't forget- the Runway Inspired Challenge is not a color challenge- you can grab inspiration from anything in the photo!  

I love the floral pattern on this paper, so I didn't want to add too much to distract from it. The sentiment is from Halftone Hello, and I stamped it in a soft pink chalk ink. Once I cut it out, I adhered it to my card with foam tape.  It felt like it needed something else, so I cut out an additional flower from one of my scraps, and popped that up too.

Hey hey!  Today there is a brand spankin' new Runway Inspired Challenge...and I just ADORE it! 

Oh my, this chick looks great!  The fuchsia paired with the ornate beading is so cool.   I would want to bedazzle my own t-shirt to look like this, but I'd be worried about not being able to pull off the look...it could possibly go old lady if not styled properly!

Of course I needed to incorporate some rhinestones:

The flower is a die cut I designed (you might be seeing more of that flower in the near future, hintity hint!), and I cut it with my new Silhouette Cameo!  I mounted it, along with the rhinestones and die cut sentiment, to a piece of patterned cardstock.  The model's outfit has two slightly different shades of pink, so I also used distress ink to blend in some darker color near the bottom.

I really love the bright white against the other colors!

Please go visit the amazing DT (some girls are sitting out this week), and please play along!
