Not Gluten Free | Essentials by Ellen + SALE


I had a bunch of Ellen Hutson - Essentials by Ellen sets out to make a card then I went a totally completely route and just used one set, Ginger House.

Those Gingerbread cookies are the cutest, right?  You can't really tell by the photo but the Oyster Gray plate has an embossed circle in the center too to add a bit of detail.  

The pattern paper was out from my last project and is Reverse Confetti's Sweet as Sugar.

The scallop detail has been stamped with Catherine Pooler's Peppermint Scrub.

My card was inspired by the Global Design Project:

Noel | Reverse Confetti


I wanted to squeak out some time to make another holiday design this weekend.  I'm suppose to be writing out my Holiday Cards right now.  Just wanted to post a reminder about the Reverse Confetti Thankful For You Sale!

Here's what I whipped up for today:

Yes, I've been switching up my photography and playing around more with my Light tent and the Lightroom App.  My crafting has been sporadic and not always in the morning or I don't have the time when there is natural sunlight to take photos.  Okay, let's chat about my card:

The base is Lead cardstock along with a panel from the Sweet as Sugar 6x6.  I managed to use the following stamp sets:

Holiday Gnomes
Seasonal Say It All

The background has a partial Mist panel with the Starstruck Cover Panel.  The images have been grounded with cork. 

I love the added festive poms.  They're tiny!

You're so Cool | Inspired by Challenge - Dashing Through the Dough

Welcome to another new Inspired by Challenge!  There is also an optional sketch challenge:


Here's how I was inspired:

The Newton's Nook Designs Snowman Roundabout is perfect for this challenge.  Look at all those cute snowpeeps.  One of my least fav copics to work  It is so unforgiving, that's probably what drove me to the pastels lately.  I did okay with this one and LOVE how the sepia tones really add a touch of coziness to the design.

The Snowman Roundabout image has been cut with the Circle Frames Die set.  The copics I used:

R05 | R08
E40 | E41

So, anyone recognize the plaid panel?  It's been cut with the Framework Die Set.  It's Panera Bread's holiday to go bag.  I can't wait until my kids see this on IG and happen to catch the word Panera...LOL.  They know that I'm a Green Goddess junkie.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, heat embossed in white.  I backed the sentiment strip with double foam adhesive so that the poms would fit nicely.

If you've reached this point, thanks for staying with me.  This is my final challenge post as a Design Team Member.  My DT plate has gotten pretty full in 2020 and my 'real life' has gotten quite busy, so I need to scale back with some of my teams.  I'm going to be honest, I've SUPER enjoyed this Design Team.  Such a great group of designers and honestly I think it's one of the best Inspiration Challenge blogs out there.  The challenges are consistently fabulous and ALWAYS inspiring.  I look forward to being constantly inspired by the team and look forward to linking up.

Here are just a couple of my favorite Design Team projects:

I can't wait to see how my other teamies were inspired, please check out the Inspired by Challenge Blog!

Nuttin but fun | Lawn Fawn

Happy Sunday!  Let's see it's November 22nd and I just counted this to be my 51st project for the month?!  I thought I was busy but didn't realize that I had designed that many for this month.  Okay, let's chat about this little scene:

I was thoroughly inspired by THIS project by Latisha.  I switched out the her contrasting color of blue with green and pops of pink.  

My worktop is covered with various Lawn Fawn sets because I had big dreams of incorporating a bunch of sets but there just wasn't enough room.  I did manage to include these:

Acorn House
Let's Go Nuts
Nutty or Nice [SSS Stamptember]
Ready, Set, Snow
Car Critters Christmas Add-On
Holiday Party Animal
Mini Wreath
Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders
Lift The Flap Tree
Simple Wavy Banners

These are the copics I used:

R20 | R21
YG01 | YG03
E95 | YR01
E50 | E21
T0 | T1

I also distressed the acorn house roof.
