Plum Crazy

Yes... you could consider me "Plum Crazy" because this is the first time I have ever played at Moxie Fab World!

Moxie is a extraordinary site brimming with tons of inspiration. A must visit if you have never been. I lurk there all the time, but this challenge caught my eye.

The challenge to use the color purple in a project. I have to admit purple is not one of my go to colors, this is why I had to play. Breaking away from my usual color pallet was fun. I made a little gift bag, Thank you Moxie for the challenge!

Thanks for all your sweet comments!

Oh yes, it's that time again. A new challenge is up at Card*A*licious and this one is one of my favorites! I'm a simple girl, who loves "things" kept to a minimum. The challenge to only use 3 things on your card. For example my card: Cardstock, a Prima, and Ribbon.

Thanks for all your sweet comments!

Halloween Box

I am very honored to be the featured artist this month at Ampersand Art. I was spoiled with Ampersands Stampboard products, which they describe as "The most amazing stamping and crafting surface". It is just that... this versatile product allows you to create the most stunning work.

Stampbord is an absorbent, clay-coated wood surface that gives a clean, pristine image every time. This multi-media surface makes combining water based paints and inks with collage techniques easy. This product is available in a variety to sizes to suite every crafters needs including Stampbord Bags, Stampbord Blocks and Stampbord Box Kits. There are also Stampbord Tools, to scratch detail and highlights into the surface, and Stampbord Inks that are specially formulated to leave brilliant color on the Stampbord surface.

For my featured project I chose to make a Stampboard Halloween Box. For steps and techniques, please visit my featured How To: here

Thank you Ampersand for this awesome opportunity!
Thanks for all your sweet comments,
