Make it Sparkle!

Woohoo! It's Friday!

I'm hosting the new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge at The Greeting Farm this week! And with the holidays literally AROUND THE CORNER I chose to make the challenge this week SPARKLE!

That's right, pull out your glitter, metallic, bling and make those cards SPARKLE & SHINE!!

I decided to play with the sweet new Holiday Anya 4 for my card this week...

Sparkle FFF

I diecut some 'snowflakes' from silver glitter paper (MFT delicate doilies) in addition to the tag (Pretty Pink Posh), and what's a card without a couple of sparkly sequins?

Hope to see you join us in the challenge! Check out some more fab inspiration and the challenge deets HERE!

Paper Sweeties November Release Rewind!

HI! (sorry I'm a bit late!)

It's here! It's release day at Paper Sweeties! You can now find all the stamp sets and sweet cuts dies that we've been previewing this week HERE!

For my last preview for this release, we're doing a little rewind and using some older sets along with the new! I mixed together some snowflakes from the Holly Days set and Homemade with Love set with the Believe die-cut from last month's Joy sweet cuts release to create this simple card!

Paper Sweeties November Release Party!

It's Day 3 of the Paper Sweeties previews!

This time around I decided to pull out my brushes and do some watercoloring! I used the ornaments from the Holly Days set...

I stamped the bulbs in white ink and embossed on watercolor paper.  I colored them using distress ink, used some metallic thread, paired it with the Joy Sweet Cuts die from last month's release! Oh, and that fabulous seam binding ribbon is from the Paper Sweeties shop too!

Please visit the PS design team's creations too!

Spreading Holiday Cheer!

Back again on this fabulous Friday for the next Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm!!

This week's challenge is Holidays, now that they are *just* around the corner!  One of my local radio stations has even started playing Christmas music non-stop- not too sure if I'm ready for that just yet! LOL!

I decided to pull out my Dollie with Gifts stamp from the last release for this card, I was blog surfing and came upon this card by Kristina Werner, and was totally in love with it! I used it as my inspiration!

Holiday Cheer

I just loved how she pops off that blue background, even though it's all one layer!

I hope to see you join us in the challenge this week AND that you check out the creations of my fellow teammates!  You can find all the challenge details at The Greeting Farm blog!

Paper Sweeties November Release Countdown!

Back again for Day 2 of the Paper Sweeties November Release previews! They will be released on the 16th and you'll be able to find them all here

Today I sharing the new "Homemade with Love" stamp set AND this comes with a matching die set!

This one is definitely perfect for all you coffee/tea/hot cocoa lovers out there! It comes with a mug, peppermint stick and some other fun accessories.  When I pulled this set out, a hot steaming cup of peppermint mocha popped into my head- so that's what I did!

Paper Sweeties November Release Sneak Peeks!

It's that time of the month again for some *sneaky peeks* of the NEW Paper Sweeties November Release stamps & Sweet Cuts!

This month's release is definitely filled with lots of fun and sweetness! Just in time for holidays!

For my first sneak peek for you, I'm sharing "Happy Holidays" this set comes with some great images- I immediately had the idea to create a mini scene...

papersweeties_lysa_11-13-14

I stamped the image (that's all ONE stamp!) plus the sentiment, used washi tape to mask off the space around it, with various shades of blue distress inks went to town creating a night sky, and added tiny white dots using my gel pen for 'snow.'

Be sure to check out what the rest of the team created- they will blow your socks off! (hopefully it's not too cold yet in your neck of the woods! ;) )
