Festive Friday's Challenge 14

Candy Cane Wishes


 This week on Festive Friday's Challenge blog we were to use candy canes! On the Moxie Fab we were challenged to make a Christmas card.  Christmas in August!  I love the way this card came out.  I used the talented Lisa Johnson's Stitched Stockings from MMT.  I love this stamp set with the stocking dies!  I used PTI's stamper's white cardstock, twine and Fabulous Frame's stamps and dies.  I love scattering sequins!  Could you tell?  Below is a closer look at the stockings.

I added little buttons and bells to my stockings along with candy canes coming out of the top.  Very "CANDYCANISH" don't you think?  The sentiment is heat embossed using silver embossing powder!  Hope you enjoy this little "cool off" in August.

Let's Eat Cake!

Let's Eat Cake...shall we?  I love these little cupcakes from PTI.  I stamped them and colored them with pencils and Copics.  I used Stickles on the icing and added cute buttons.  

The streamers are from Bountiful Banners and are cut from the coordinating dies in various PTI colors.  Eat cake and the cupcakes are from Tremendous Treats: Birthday.  I added sequins here and there.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Ahoy There!

What's not to love about this little ole sailboat?  When I was purchasing these papers from Pink Petticoat, I looked at her blog and she was making these adorable little sailboats.  I had to make my own!  This card uses all designer paper from the Pink Petticoat!  I cut little waves with my Fiskars punch!  Cut out a sentiment from PP as well and added some sequins and enamel dots!

I will be entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!  Have a terrific weekend!

Ahoy Mates!!

Waving Hello

This is my first stamp set from Paper Smooches!  What was I waiting on? $  :).  I adore this stamp set and dies called Wicked Nauticool!  It is perfect for me who is a Nautical loving soul!!  I grew up on the water and my Dad loved boats!  Although sailboats were not something we owned, I still love the beauty of them.
I could not wait to ink these babies up and play!  I also stumbled across some beautiful digital papers that made my heart sing!  These are from Pink Petticoat across the pond!  The papers in this collection are super!

The banner dies are from Papertrey Ink.  The little flag is heat embossed as is the waves.  I added a few sequins, some pink and white twine and there you have it!
I am entering this card into Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  This weeks challenge was to use triangles!  I do not own any of those trendy stamps yet.  
On another note today, you may have noticed that I have changed the name of my blog to AllThatsPaper.  I am working on an Etsy Shop and that is the name of the shop.  So I have changed the background somewhat as well.  
Have a great day!

Color Throwdown #253


I am entering a second card in this challenge today.  Two posts in one day is crazy for me!!  The stamp set and dies I used for this card are my absolute favorite Papertrey Ink set so far!!  It is called Pedal Pushers and with the dies and stamps the possibilities are endless!!  LOVE it!  Here is the card.

Don't you love that bike?  I die cut the bike twice so that I could add the seat, handlebars and basket in a fun color that looks like leather and wood.  I added those fun presents and the cute banner flying behind the bike.  I fussy cut the banner after I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in aqua blue and colored with ink over it in tangerine from Stampin' Up.  The arrows are from Bountiful Banners...also from PTI.  The look for the road is patterned paper from Webster's Pages!
The wheels actually turn as I attached them with brads!  Love how this card turned out.  Hope you do to!
Enjoy your weekend and get some crafty time in!

Color Throwdown 253

Hey there!  I am back for another challenge!  The colors in this weeks Color Throwdown is not too easy for me but I gave it a shot.  I have two cards to share today.  The first one I used a darker grey cardstock.  I die cut and stamped a sunflower from PTI.  I spritzed some aqua and some cantaloupe colored spray onto the card base.  I used a patterned paper for my flag going down the front and stamped and heat embossed the word HELLO! 


I finished the card with some enamel dots!  Back soon with my second card!
