FMS167 & CMCC51... Hanging Mittens


Hi everyone,

I am playing along today with this week's Freshly Made Sketches.  The colors I chose are this week's Colour Me combo.

 
 
My card:


 
 
I began with Whisper White card base, and the layers are Always Artichoke and White card stock.  Patterned paper are from my stash - always good to keep those little scraps of paper from other projects.  I created a wintery scene by hanging mittens over some branches, and added fun flock under the mittens to simulate snow.  It's a little bit hard to see on the picture though.  The die cut branches were created with the Memory Box Woodland Branch.  I printed off the digital images onto white cardstock, fussy cut and then colored them with Copic markers.  (sorry, I don't remember where I purchased the digi stamp).

HSS Sketch Challenge... Little Giraffe

Hey friends,
 
Taking a break from holiday cards, I decided to create a baby card for this week's Hand Stamped Sketch Challenge.  The card base is Whisper White and the layers are pretty patterned papers from DCWV Dot Stack Paper Pad.  I used the Create a Critter cricut cartridge to cut out the cute giraffe.  I then used some yellow and white Baker's Twine, wrapped it around the card twice, then added a small bow to the left hand side of the card.

CMCC... Christmas Card

Hi Friends,
 
**Please note that I did not turn on Word Verification.  For some odd reason, it will pop up when you leave a comment.  Some of my other blog friends have encountered the same problem**
 
Last week. I purchased some new stamps from my local craft store, and I just had to break them in.  I decided to create a card using the new palette from Colour Me Challenge - Night of Navy and Silver.  Such an elegant combo!
 
 
                                            
My card:
 
 
The card base is Whisper White, and the layers are Night of Navy and pretty patterned paper from DCWV The Twinkle Glints Paper Stack.  Not sure if you can see it, but the diagonal lines have a shiny silver to it.  My new stamp is from Hero Arts called Joy Burst, and was heat embossed in silver embossing powder.  I really like how the image stands out.  I hope you like it.

Hey Everyone,
 
Today's card was created for this week's CAS on Sunday Challenge.  This week's theme is children's card.

FMS 154 ... Because I Care

Hi Everyone,

I managed to create a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches.  


I used 3 SU! stamp sets - Flower Shop , Summer Silhouettes and Because I Care, along with Basic Black, Crushed Curry and Basic Grey inks.  I think the black and white washi tapes compliments the pretty flowers.  This card is for a special friend who suffered a stroke.  I hope she likes it.

PP209....Cake Pop Birthday

Happy Sunday,

I have a fun card I put together for this week's The Papers Players.  This week is a Clean-and-Simple Child's Birthday theme challenge. 


 
 
My card:
 
 
I started out with Whisper White card base.  I created a yummy-looking cake pop.  I used 1 3/8" circle  punch to make the cake circle.  I then created the frosting with the negative part of the pink glittery card stock using the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Halloween punch.   I adhered a lollipop stick and attached a bow using pink/white Baker's Twine.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping The Sky's the Limit, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.

PPA215... Happy Birthday to You!

Hey Everyone,

Today, I have a quick card using this week's color challenge over at Pal Paper Arts.  This week's colors are Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black - such a gorgeous combo, don't you agree?
08-14



 
I began with a Whisper White card base, and the layers are Basic Black card stock and patterned paper from MS Carnival Photo Mat Pad.  Using a rectangular spellbinder, the middle of the patterned paper was cut out.  The flower and sentiment were then adhered to the white case base.  I picked the beautiful two-step SU! Stippled Blossoms as my focal image.  I stamped the solid flower in Strawberry Slush ink and used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement to overstamp the outline flower in the same ink color.  I did the same for the leaves, but in Pear Pizzazz ink.  The sentiment is from IBS Small Fancy Labels 18, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.  A collection of pearls and sequins added the perfect amount of glam.

Exploring Cricut and More...Christmas Card

Hey Everyone,

Today I am popping in with a quick share; a card I made for this week's Exploring Cricut and More. 
They are having a Christmas in July Blog Hop!


My card has a Whisper White card base, followed by red card stock.  I cut the Christmas trees at 2.5" using the Joys of the Season cartridge, and the cute reindeer at 1.5" using Create a Critter cartridge.  I then used some fun flock to add fluffy snow to the edges of the slope (sorry, it's hard to see).  I stamped the holiday sentiment from Inspired by Stamping Elegant Christmas Sentiment in Basic Black ink.  Blue rhinestones and red Baker's Twine finish off the details.
