Merriment Play

hello folks! first off, i want to thank you so much for the sweet comments on the Laboratorie post...i appreciate them so much!  i create with products that inspire me and make things that bring me know that i have inspired others lights me up...that is true joy to me!

today, i have more CHA samples...this time it's all about Merriment...

the Idea-ology booth...unbelievable...and so very inspiring!

first up, is this worn cover that i altered to make a cheerful hanging...the layers of bulbs, bells, and snowflakes came together beautifully...the bows are cut out of the candycane blueprint stamp...i loved the look!

this tag shoes the bow as part of the candycane stamp...this set is one of my favorites, just love the versitility!

for as simple as this card is, it is one of my favorites! love the details on this and how it practically put itself together! 

and for something a little sweet...and sparkly! the new mirrored stars are just adorable...can't wait to ink them up for any color i need!

the new skate die is one of my absolute fun to grunge up and lace up! and those banners...L.O.V.E.

while making samples, i discovered a mad love for the bulbs...i found myself going back to them over and over...i had to control myself!

this jolly guy is stamped on the new watercolor is AMAZING! it allows blending like nothing i have ever used before...seriously that good!

i hope you enjoyed, and hopely found a little inspiration, these many great things released, i have to get back in the studio to play!

these pumpkins were fun to color and layer...the new linen trimming is so very was a great texture to add to this card...
