Welcome to Scrap Tower, my little corner of the world, where I share my creativity with you.

I enjoy many forms of crafting, from paper crafting to sewing. I make custom greeting cards for family and friends. I've made unique custom cards commissioned by friends.

I am proud to have been a card maker for the organization Operation Write Home (OWH) for several years supplying 1,000+ handmade cards for our HEROES.

I continue to make cards as gifts or to sell and I am testing a few other sewing and crochet projects to sell.

My current charitable project is Sew Powerful Purse and I have sewn and donated 20+ purses in the past two years. I plan to donate 10+ purses in 2018.

I enjoy sharing my creative passion with others, including children in Sunday School and Bible School, etc.

OWH Sketch Challenge #190

Sketch #190 for OWH is a fun one.  I have two versions to submit for the moment, both are winter cards.
I also have more ideas floating around in the creative side of my brain. :)

I used the same stamp for both cards, but used a blue theme on the first one and red theme on the second one.  Both are winter cards.

Blue Winter Snow

I used Metallic Shimmer Paper by The Paper Company for the background
I used the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder for the texture
The snowflake ribbon is Ribbon Sense from a $1 bin .... somewhere
The image is a rubber stamp by Rubber Soul using white pigment ink and heat embossed with white powder
The snowflake punches are by EK Success, except the 3 tiny snowflakes are from a border punch by Fiskars left on my desk from a card that I made yesterday.  (LOL)

Red Winter Snow
Plain white cardstock for the background on this one
Same embossing folder, stamp, ink and heat embossing white powder
Pattern paper pieces are scraps from Canvas scrap pack
Different snowflake punches for this one - small one is EK Success and the big one is McGill
The bling in the snowflakes is from Stampendous - Dot Sparklers Silver - great ones because they are flat


Here is the OWH Sketch #190

  1. WOW! Both cards are awesome and I can't even pick a favorite! You did a great job creating both of them!

  2. Both are great but I LOVE the red one! Wow!

  3. These are both just gorgeous cards! I really love the image with the white embossing. It really just shines as the focal point. Wonderful job with this week's OWH sketch.

  4. I am feeling all wintry now. Love the red card because the red and white pop. Love the blue card because it just feels like winter (and yet it is supposed it be 95 here in Southern California today.....)

  5. I am with Carol...these are perfect...but I do like the blue a teensy weensy more just because of the color. TFS!!!

  6. I love the blue and white card and I like how you plan your card and measurements out. I will try that with my new stamping efforts.
