For this weeks challenge I thought of flowers (gee that’s a surprise since I LOVE the Flower Market Cartridge -right?).  Well I played around with Flower Market and the With You D1705 stamp set.

color-dare-215-flower-market-with-you-catscrapbooking-comI trimmed the right edge of the card so Cotton Candy would show through.  Here is what the inside looks like.

Sugar Skull Cards

I just cannot get enough of these Sugar Skulls whether it is form the Flower Market Cartridge or the adorable Sugar Skull Stamp set. Here are two more Sugar Skull cards.

jeepers-creepers-sugar-skull-catscrapbooking-comFor this card I used Jeepers Creepers paper pack, Flower Market – Sugar Skull, and Sugar Skull stamp set.  I used my blender pen to add the willow green to the stamped leaves.

yuletide-joy-2016It was actually quite fun to create a festive card for the Holidays.

yuletide-joy-2016I decided to incorporate my favorite thing the New Flower Market Cartridge to create a fun accent with this adorable stocking.  I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the stocking.   I then used watercolors to add color to this stamped stocking.  The Flower Market cuts Holly Berry #MD7AA86,  Holly Branch Bundle #MD72DD2, and Pine Needles Branch #MD67851. I used the Red Enamel Gems Z3090 to replace the holly berries associate with the holly berry leaves. I added a little white watercolor splatter and used my white gel pen to make the stitching.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of September and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

Your next stop is along this hop is LELA N’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Sugar Skull Wreath

I have seen a couple really awesome wreaths made using strips of pattern paper around various sized rings. I decided it was time to make my own instead of just admiring them from a far.  So this weekend I sat down and designed my Halloween Sugar Skull Wreath.

jeepers-creepers-halloween-wreath-sugar-skull-flower-market-catscrapbooking-comI am so in love with the new Flower Market and used the fun Sugar Skull #md72cd2, Halloween banner #md72c8a and Daisy #mfadcf2. I used the Jeepers Creepers paper pack with Tangerine, Whisper, Slate and Black.

jeepers-creepers-halloween-wreath-detail-sugar-skull-flower-market-catscrapbooking-comHere is a close up of the details.  I used the Enamel and Glitter Duos Blue Dots on the Sugar Skull.

jeepers-creepers-halloween-wreath-detail-flower-market-catscrapbooking-comI used the new shimmer brush to add to sparkle to the flowers. I also used liquid glass in the center of the daisy flowers.

This wreath is made by wrapping 1.5 inch by 12 inch strips around a 14 inch foam wreath.

Fall Banner

I know I should have been working on my personal layout challenge and now will have another week that I will miss 🙁 .  But I did create a super cool project that I have been wanting to accomplish for two years.  I made a Summer Banner and have been wanting to make one for all the seasons.  Here is my Fall one and I am LOVING the new CTMH Flower Market!!!!

flower-market-enchantment-fundamental-fall-home-decor-catscrapbooking-comHere is what each of the tiles look like up close.  I found these last year at Michaels they are 4 x 4 inch burlap tiles.
