Hi Everyone. Happy Easter Sunday. It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's Clean and Simple Week. I needed a baby card and used another one of the freebies that Lou got for me on a recent trip to Australia. This stamp and a few others came in one of the card crafting magazines. It's the cutest possible image and I decided to keep it really clean and simple. The only part of the ducks that I could paper piece were the wellies. So, I got some left over plaid and stamped out the... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. I have a quick post for you tonight. I saw this great sketch across at Freshly Made and decided I liked it so much that I was inspired to make two cards. Tonight's card is the second card I made with the sketch. One of my favorite Altenew sets is the Build a Flower Magnolia and I decided it would really well as the left hand element. I stamped and colored it with my Copics and it gave me a very subtle look and I really liked it. However, once I had assembled the card, I decided it... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and she has a color challenge for us: These aren't colors I would generally put together simply because I dislike Calypso Coral! :-). I don't have Balmy Blue in my stash, so had to make do. It took me a little while to determine what I was going to do - I SO wanted to do florals, but decided not to go all in on them. I also made a square card - mmmmmm... can't remember the last time I made a square card, but... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Susan's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a great code word for us: I decided to bring out an oldie - but goodie. Sadly, this company is no longer creating stamps, which is a pity as they had some good humorous stamps. I created this card for DD - now, it has to be said that she is not looking for a guy. Right now, she is concentrating on her career. However, I knew that she would appreciate the humor! :-) I started by die-cutting an oval and... Continue reading

HI Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's a theme challenge - and what a theme :-) April 6th is American Tartan Day. I have to tell you, I didn't know it was Tartan Day. However, through my Mother's side of the family, I am part of the Clan Donald, so was very pleased to be able to highlight Tartan for our challenge this week. However..... I didn't have any MacDonald Tartan paper :-). This particular tartan is my favorite MacDonald Tartan: In case you are interested, you can find the... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you all had a great weekend. I have a quick post for you tonight showcasing a card I made for the casethissketch challenge this week. As I am still in need of birthday cards, I decided to use this sketch for that purpose. And... how could I not be guided by the sketch? :-). I thought it was perfect for one of the Altenew butterflies that I have in my stash. These butterflies really are gorgeous. I was inspired by the color on the butterfly and made the stripes grey and yellow to echo... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's Tic Tac Toe week! I decided to go diagonally = die-cut, embossing and floral. I needed a sketch and decided to make a second card with the great Freshly Made Sketches sketch this week. I hope they will forgive me that I put the side panel on the left so that it fit with my die-cut floral :-) Before I share tonight's card with you, I'd like to point out that the world is about to turn on its axis!!...

HI Everyone. Happy Saturday. This is my second post today :-). I'm popping in to share a card I made for The Card Concept and Freshly Made Sketches Here's the sketch from FMS: and here's the inspiration photo from Card Concept: As soon as I saw the inspiration photo from the Card Concept I knew what I was going to do. I pulled out a very old piece of photo DSP from Stampin' Up! and blended Broken China ink over the top of it to give it a similar color to the inspiration photo. I then stamped and fussy cut...

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Barb's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a fun code word for us: I decided I needed to stock up on some birthday cards and had this teapot stamp that came free as part of a set in a UK card making magazine. Lou picked a couple of them up at Sydney Airport in Australia and they were being sold at 50% off. So, this stamp was included in a magazine sold in England, that was transported around the world to Australia to be sold there.... Continue reading

Thanks, Marilyn. It's an interesting question. For me, it depends on the card. Sometimes, I fussy cut to remove the white halo - sometimes, like this one I leave it. As there is so much white on the card, I didn't think it was as distracting as on other cards. You can see on this post that I removed it because of the dark background https://www.jaydeestamping.com/weblog/2017/10/build-a-rose-for-match-the-sketch-and-cas-colors-and-sketches.html hugs jaydee
