Just Sitting Here Thinking Of You Cat Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

For the Creative Cat Crew Color Challenge #26, I used a new stamp set! I bought this set with Copic coloring in mind. It does NOT come with matching dies but I knew that the pillows would be easy to fussy cut and I would be using the cat since I am a cat person and it didn't look to bad to fussy cut. I list the Copic colors below and chose to mat with Real Red and Marina Mist on Whisper White...

Hello Card I Sent To A Fellow Cardmaker | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I decided that I had PLENTY of cards on hand so to celebrate World Card Making Day, I pulled out cheerful cards to mail to my cardmaking peeps! I then spent alot of time on the envelopes as I like to do. I already forwarned Hub last night that I was going to be busy all morning. He respected my schedule and at 3pm we drove to the tiny town of Plain, Wa and I left my cards in the little silver...

Purple And Orange Dragonfly Floral Friend Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I wanted to create a project outside of my comfort zone in color, paper and card style. I challenged myself to start with a dark card base, fold the front down, I used Copic X-press IT for the floral image and then used vellum for the sentiment, leaves and dragonfly.

I also used metallic inks on the dark grey base in silver and copper. I wanted the floral image to float over the folded...

Fall Tree Thinking Of You Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I made this project after creating a different card using Stampin' Up!'s A Sheltering Tree. The first one was in summer colors so I thought I should make one in fall colors. Colors used were: Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. I like the look of the horizontal popped up area for the tree leaves. I stamped off the cajun craze for the lighter leaves. This was a very quick card to make and I like...

Hometown Greetings Fall Colors Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

How time flies! I am a new Stampin' Up demonstrator, and I've been working on my sales strategy which is tricky. Because I travel full time, I had to build something that will work for my potential full time travelling customers. So, I am going to be the Paper Pumpkin fairy! I want to promote a product that takes up little space and comes with everything needed to be creative in one little box...

There was a workshop at our retreat in which we made two projects. This was the first one we made. I enjoyed working with Stampin' Up! Products I don't own. In some cases they are duplicates, or very similar to what I already have. In this case I already own a coffee set and would not justify owning another so similar, but I still enjoyed making the card and having it in my "collection"....

Wetlands Birthday Greetings Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I made this project for my Father In Law's birthday coming up in January. You might be thinking, wow, now thats some pre-planning! Reality is that I had wanted to make this card for him for this January, but I could not find the seabirds stamp. I looked everywhere for it. Keep in mind I live full time in a 33' fifth wheel and am very, very organized. It was not to be found.

Fast forward...
