Today we have sneak peeks for Under Glass Christmas Traditions. If you saw the first edition of Under Glass you are gonna love this one just as much. I wanted to create a mini card for this months Power and Spark challenge but its a tad over the 4 inch tall requirement so it turned into just a mini tag. hee hee


The tree is colored with various Copic markers. Then a simple pierced edge and some faux stitching around before I adhered it to a decorative panel. I have had this green shimmery ribbon for awhile and it was perfect for the top with a bow. Added a few jewels and then some sparkle. Voila!

Today we are showing you Rustic Rejoicing. Oh my word... this set is a must have I am telling you now. The first thing I thought of was a gift tag using these pine cones. Oh they make me so happy. Colored with some Copic markers and a few tag die cut layers.


Now I will tell you that this tag looks so much better in real life. The suduko gel pen accents do not show in the photo at all. I added a gold rim around the red layer and then went over it with the gel pen to add an extra bit of shimmer. The ribbon has some sparkle added to it as well which you can sorta see. I am not sure I can part with this tag, I really like how this turned out. Simple ribbon tied around the top and some gold cord to finish it off. Voila!

Mini sunflower

Happy Friday! Have you heard the expression "Running around like a chicken with his head cut off?" Well that would be a great example of what we have going on at our house as of late. I will not bore you with the details but let me just say a nice day on the beaches of hawaii sound really good about now. As long as I was not able to take my cell phone or a laptop with me.  ;-)  hee hee  


I did have time to color up a quick mini card the other day between games. This little guy is for our Mini and Mighty challenge we have going on over at Power Poppy the whole month! Check out the post for details and linking your creations.  You have a chance at winning $50 in Power Poppy Bucks!


Had to take a quick picture out back since I wasn't able to get the camera out. I kinda like how it reflects off the table don't you? Anyways, this is using In Praise of Sunflowers. I stamped the little sunflower image onto cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Then scored around the edge and added my sentiment. This card is a total of 4 inches high and 2 1/2 in width. Super cute all tiny and sweet. Added a few jewels and some sparkle and voila! Hope you get a chance to play along this month. 
Big news... Power Poppy's October Happiest Holiday 2017 Release starts Sunday October 15th through October 24th! GASP!!! YES, that many days and that means... that many new stamps and a few Instant Garden Digi's!!!  Woot Woot!!!! You will not want to miss a thing.

Mini and Mighty Autumn


Hi and welcome to this months Power and Spark challenge called Mini and Mighty brought to you by myself. :-)  Often I don't need a large card just a small thank you note to attach to something or to slip someone to say hi. Those tend to be smaller notes that are perfect to say what I need without a lot of space. So how about some mini me creations this month. Plus you have a chance at winning $50 in power poppy bucks! I hope you can play along. 


Since I had not had a change to play with the new Autumn's Opulence digi that was perfect for my first Mini and Mighty creation. After I colored the petals and leaves in the wonderful fall colors we have outside right now, I die cut the shape using a Spellbinders dies. Then I figured I would add some layers with the same shape for the base and designer paper. The image panel is up on dimensionals so that I was able to add the flourished pearls under neath. My sentiment tag with an enamel dot to the corner and finished it off with some sparkle. Voila!

October calendar Page



This boot is so fun to color and with the leaves changing color outside it was pretty easy to imagine fall colors. The stamp set I used was Feeling Fall and very easy calendar page again with just a few enamel dots and some sparkles. Voila!
