Today for the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop we got to work with ColorBox ColoriQue by Lisa Marie Jimenez and U-Paint Metal Crafts. I love how easy and fun it was to paint the metal wreath with ColoriQue.


Below is a quick video tutorial showing how to use ColoriQue to paint my wreath ornament.

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Decoration

Hello, crafty friends! After Halloween is over I like to keep a few Autumn decorations up around the house and before all the Christmas ones go up. This pretty Thanksgiving pumpkin decoration is perfect to put on a mantel or table.


You Will Need:

Handmade or Store Bought Fabric Pumpkin



There are lots of cute fabric pumpkins in the stores at this time of year, or you can simply cover a craft pumpkin with fabric to make your own.

Once you have your fabric pumpkin picked out, remove the letters you need from the letter sheet, then iron the letters in place following the directions on the letter sheet package. Easy Peasy!  You can also glue the letters in place with fabric glue if desired.

Holly Jolly Easy Christmas Card

Hello! Today I am sharing a card I created for Imagine.

When you have to make a bunch of Christmas cards, the easier they are to make the better. Even though I wanted to make a pretty simple card, I also didn't want it to look simple. The red on red created a perfect background and the silver embellishments created the perfect pop of wow for the perfect Holly Jolly Christmas card.


Below is a video tutorial showing exactly how I created my card.

Happy Thanksgiving Card

Hello! With Thanksgiving being right around the corner I thought it was a perfect time to make a Happy Thanksgiving Turkey card. This Happy Thanksgiving Stamp from Brutus Monroe was actually the first stamp that came in the Brutus Monroe Stamp Club. Do you have this stamp? No worries if you do not, it is available at the Brutus Monroe store HERE!


I stamped the turkey and the sentiment with the Brutus Monroe Raven Detail Ink and using a sponge dauber I added some Brutus Monroe Surface Ink in Phonebook to the outside edges of the stamped pieces.


Then I added some layers of patterned paper, a piece of burlap and twine ribbon. Before adhering the stamped images to the front of my card I flicked on some Brutus Monroe Liquid Elements in Sterling

Snowman Card with Deco Foil

Hello! Today I want to share a cute Deco Foil Snowman Card that I created using one of the snowmen from the Brutus Monroe Snow Friends Stamp Set.


Below is a video tutorial showing exactly how I created my card.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get updates when I post a new video.


For the background, I used the Brutus Monroe Snowflake Stencil with Deco Foil Transfer Gel. I let the transfer gel dry until it was clear and then placed a piece of Iridescent Deco Foil over it and ran it through the Foil Laminator.


I colored the snowman in with Stylefile Markers, fussy cut him out and used Therm O Web Foam Adhesive Squares to pop him up onto the front of my card.
