"A real year of ups and downs. Big moment: bicycling with my hubby in Paris ending at the Eiffel Tower at 11 pm for it twinkling."

What an awesome moment for 2019! The Eiffel Tower is a bucket list item for me, I hope one day I get to go.

Double Pull Tab Card

Hello!
Today I have a fun card to share that features a double pull tab. I have been wanting to pop a little mouse up out of the desk drawer since the first time I saw the You're Just my Type set.

Chari-DoublePullTab Mice1

I used the Let's Toast Pull-tab add-on for both of the pull tabs.  I did have to modify it for the mouse in the drawer.  But after a couple of trials and tribulations I managed to make it work and I think it is just adorable!

I wish there were little mice helping me work everyday. :)

Check out the video tutorial to see how I created this card, including my mistakes so you can learn from them too hopefully.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Get Cracking on Christmas: Joyful Snowflakes


Hello! Today I'm popping to join my fellow Get Cracking on Christmas friends for the last post of the year.  If you don't already know, the Get Cracking challenge was thought up with my friends Jenn and Cheiron as a way to encourage us to use our Christmas stamps throughout the whole year. I was pretty busy this year and didn't get too many Christmas cards designed throughout the year but today's card I mass produced, making 100 of them for my dad to send out to his clients for the Holiday.

JoyfulSnowflake1

I stamped the background tone on tone using the leaves and berries background stamp from Simon Says Stamp. Then I added metallic gold watercolor splatters.

JoyfulSnowflake2

I die cut the Marie snowflake from Simon Says Stamp from white cardstock and sprayed it with a layer of Iridescent Glitter Dust. I layered the snowflake behind the die cut joyful sentiment which is cut from metallic gold paper with a vellum shadow behind it.

Please go visit my friends Jenn and Cheiron to see their holiday creations and join us for the final Get Cracking on Christmas of the year.  Use the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas so we can see your holiday cards.

Lawn Fawn Release Week: XOXO Backdrop


Hello! Today is the last day of Lawn Fawn release week. All the new goodies will be available tomorrow! Today card features the new XOXO backdrop.  

XOXObackground_ChariMoss2

I created a flippin' awesome card with the new Love Poems stamp set to make a little poem as you flip through the panels.

I also thought it would be cute to use the little mice with sheets of paper to spell out a message with Quinn's ABCs, like little cheerleaders. I used the die to inlay the pieces so that they do not layer on top of each other so as not to get caught as the card slides.

The XOXO backdrop adds a nice subtle background for the flippin' awesome card to layer over top of.

Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn blog for more cards using the XOXO backdrop and check out the intro video to see this card come together.
