This card is a CASEing of Tracy Durcan’s card found HERE!

Her work is a stamp company owner’s dream…
It’s clean, straight-forward, inspiring and leaves viewers wanting more!
She’s a fellow Odd Bird too 🙂
I kept the overall concept the same 
but added some basic grey DP in the background, 
the Claudine Hellmuth sticky-back canvas label die machine stitched,
and added more buttons 🙂
Thanks for the inspiration Tracy!

Welcome to another week of Etsy Inspired!
This week’s shop is Tony Carlisle’s Photo Gallery!
His photography has this very ethereal quality to it…
It’s beautiful and calming all at the same time.
If you participate this week you are entered to win a 
free 8×10 print courtesy of Tony C. 
My photo card features another Etsy artist’s photography, Sandra Williams,
Pink Paislee dsp and Creative Imaginings rub-ons. If I had my hands on some of Tony C.’s work I would’ve used that instead 😉 But, I felt that Sandra’s work was a good substitute.
Here is some inspiration:


If you would like to play along this week, just go to Tony C.’s shop, choose something that inspires you, and post a link to your creation on Ashley’s blog!

Here are my submissions for the Cosmo Cricket Design Team. I am entering as a card maker! I chose pieces that really showcased the Designer Paper and were the epitome of my style 🙂 My style is fun, funky, full of texture and playful. 

Now to sell myself:
On a personal note, I’m pretty eclectic often times drawing inspiration from vintage patterns, Etsy finds and interesting color palettes. Everything I do, I do with the utmost of passions and you’ll often times hear me exclaiming, “I just LOVE that!” over and over. I’m generally a happy go lucky positively creative person 😉 Yep, that’s me in a nutshell!

Moxie Fab Tree Challenge

From cards

Moxie Fab World Tree Challenge

I made this card for a great Moxie Fab Challenge that’s right up my alley….using tree images! If you are a Unity Fan, like I am, your stamp collection includes dozens of trees!

I wanted to go with a simple, yet bold design. So I used some Claudine Hellmuth sticky-back canvas, the stampin up label die, and some CTMH papers and ribbon.

I JUST LOVE the texture of CH’s Sticky-back canvas. And I HAD to stitch around the label and the tree 🙂
