Hogs & Kisses Mini Pizza Box

This Little Piggy Mini Pizza Box

 Hello Friends,

Ever want to make more than a card?  The new Mini Pizza Boxes from the Holiday Catalog are so much fun to decorate.  And when you are finished, you can slip something fun inside.  The adorable  flying pig from the This Little Piggy made a fun box topper.  I colored my pig with Berry Burst reinker and an aqua painter.

 

Mini Pizza Boxes

 Mini boxes just the right size for holding a cookie or 3" x 3" cards.  I especially like that the Mini Pizza Boxes are food safe and that the inside has a smooth surface that protects your box from the oils from cookies.

Color Inspiration for today's card came from the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge-Berry Burst, Pink Pirouette and Lost Lagoon.  I substituted Pool Party for Lost Lagoon.   And for dessert, it was a popped up element.  I chose a non-card project.  I was itching to use the new Mini Pizza Boxes from the Holiday Catalog.   I will be participating in the Splitcoast Color Challenge every Tuesday from now through the end of March 2018.  And I am delighted to say that I will be  joining the Splitcoast Color Challenge Team for 6 months starting in October.  I hope that you will join me on this colorful adventure.  Go ahead, Kick start your paper crafting with a color challenge.

Smitten Mittens Card You Can Make

Smitten Mittens Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

Need a card that you can make in minutes?  Try this simple Smitten Mittens card.  A quick pass through the Big Shot with the Many Mittens dies and I had the adorable mitten.  Then I stamped "Smitten" for the Smitten Mittens stamp set and added pretty Vintage Crochet Trim also from the Holiday Catalog.  And the plaid designer paper that we all love and adore is from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper stack.  That's it, I made a handmade card in minutes.

Country Livin' Side by Side

Country Livin' Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Do you ever have a card turn out entirely different than you had planned.   I started out with lots and lots of bright cheerful flowers, but they just weren't working with the tinted wood that I just had to try after I saw an Artisan Team Member do it.  (Hint:  Simply roll some ink over the the Wood Textures Designer Paper.  Wow!)  Scrap the flower out came the boots from the Country Livin' stamp set.

Country Livin' Boots Coloring Technique

Coloring Technique for Boots

I colored both boots essentially the same way;  I just changed the colors ( Soft Suede, Calypso Coral Bermuda Bay).  Hint:  Watercolor paper is a must when coloring with Aqua Painters on a bigger surface such as the boots.  First, I washed my base coat of color over my boots.  Then, I went back and added deeper color everywhere that had lines and creases.  The boot stamp from the Country Livin' stamp set makes it easy, because the lines and creases are plain to see.  And finally, for even deeper color, I used my markers to color the soles and accent pieces.  Hers are Bermuda Bay and his are Soft Suede.

Country Livin' Stampin' Up!

I did end up using my original stamp set for the Side by Side sentiment.  Remember all the bright and cheerful flowers that I ended up not using?  Anyway the sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  The watercolored boots compliment the washed wood look so much better than stamped flowers.  The grass is the grass beneath the truck in the Country Livin' Stamp set.

My inspiration for today's card came from two different sources.
