Just Add Ink Challenge #193

Happy Friday!

I have a card to share with you for this week's Just Add Ink Inspiration Challenge.  It's all about "STARS"..

This is what I came up with:

Today, I have a CAS card using the MS Star Punch.  The card base is Whister White, and the layers are Gumball Green and Silver (since I had these out from yesterday's card, I decided to use them again!).  I created a Christmas tree using SU! Print Poetry DSP and more silver card stock.  I pulled out some brown paper from my stash and created the tree trunk.  The sentiment is from SU! Petite Pairs, and was stamped in Memento Bamboo Leaves.

Thanks for visiting today,

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I wanted to quickly post this card I created last night.  It combines the colors from Color Throwdown Combo with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches Challenge:

My card:

I began with Whisper White card base, and the layers are Gumball Green and SU! Print Poetry DSP.  I took a piece of silver card stock, embossed it with the Lacy Brocade folder and adhered it to the left side of the panel.  The image is from PTI In the Meadow Silhouettes Die Collection, and was die-cut in silver.  I matted the image with more Gumball Green, and arranged it on Crumb Cake card stock.  I then stamped three tiny snowflakes, to give it a winter feeling.  I used some silver cording and wrapped it around my card two times and added a pretty silver snowflake on the corner.  The sentiment is from SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes and was stamped with versamark ink and then embossed with Gumball Green embossing powder.

Merry Monday #85

Happy Tuesday,

I'm popping in very quickly to share a card for this week's Merry Monday #85.  We were asked to create a card using all white or ivory, and brown or kraft for the sentiment and accents.

My card:

I created a CAS card, which is always one of my favorite styles.  The card base is Very Vanilla, followed with another layer of the same card stock and embossed with the Holly embossing folder.
I created a poinsettia with the Layered Poinsettia Spellbinders, and simply added 4 tiny rhinestones in the middle.  The sentiment is from Fiskars' Holiday Frolic, and was stamped in VersaFine Vintage Sepia.

I'm also linking at CAS on Sunday and Rudolph Days Challenge.

Merry Monday #84

Hi Everyone!

I am on a roll with Christmas cards! WOO HOO! I couldn't resist not playing this week over at Merry Monday.  We were asked to use a tree and bling.  Love the combo.

My card:

The base of the card is Real Red and then a layer of Whisper White.  I used Penny Black Snow Dust stamp for the focal point of my card, and stamped it with a new ink I purchased from VersaFine called Vintage Sepia.  In person, it's a very pretty gold color.  I double matted the image using more Real Red and Gold card stock.  It looked a bit plain, so I wrapped some gold ribbon around the top and bottom edges.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Elegant Christmas Sentiments, and was stamped in Vintage Sepia ink.  The final details are some red and silver rhinestones, added on the trees.

Happy Sunday!

It's another week over at Dynamic Duos.  We were asked to use Black & Smoky Slate ( Silver) with the dessert option of Christmas. I decided to incorporate the dessert option for my card.

My card:

My card is clean and simple, with no frills.  I began with Whisper White card base, followed by Basic Black and more Whisper White.  I used DCWV The Twinkle Glints Printed Cardstock for the 3 Christmas ornaments, and punched them out with SU! Ornament (retired).  Unfortunately, the shiny ornaments' effect did not show on the picture.  Using a thin marker, I added some lines to simulate that they are hanging.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Season Stamp Set, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.

Thanks for taking a look!

Merry Monday #83

Happy Monday!

It's another week over at Merry Monday!  We were asked to use Stripes, Red, Chocolate with Stars or Hearts.


My card:

My card is bright and fun, just right for a kiddo!  I used the SU! Post Card for my card (again!).  I can't seem to put it away...I just love this stamp because it's so versatile.  The card base is Whisper White and the next layer is Cherry Cobbler, embossing with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The Post Card was matted with Chocolate Chip card stock.  I used the owl punch from SU! and dressed him up with some striped patterned paper, a Santa hat and a tiny red heart.  The die-cut branch was created with the Memory Box Woodland Branch.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado Warm Holiday Wishes, and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink, as well as the North Pole stamp.

Happy Sunday!

I've missed a couple of my favorite card challenges the past 2 weeks, but lucky for me, I made some time this morning to create a card for this week's Dynamic Duos.  We were asked to use Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke.  I do not have Always Artichoke, but substituted with Memento Cottage Ivy.

My card:

For my card, I used the SU! Post Card, SU! Contempto Christmas (christmas tree), SU! Snow Swirled (sentiment) and Fiskars' Christmas (postage).  The card base is Crumb Cake, then Always Artichoke card stock.  I stamped the Post Card onto some Very Vanilla and stamped in Crumb Cake ink, as well as the base of the Christmas tree.  The sentiment, Christmas tree and postage were all stamped in Cottage Ivy ink.  A double bow using some Crumb Cake seam binding gives the card a festive look.  A small rhinestone on top of the tree and on the corners finish off the details.

Thanks for stopping by,

Merry Monday #82 & TPE224

Hi Everyone,

Happy Tuesday!  Today's card was created for this week's The Pink Elephant card challenge. 

The colors I chose are this week's Merry Monday color combo.

My card:

I began with Whisper White card base, followed by Real Red and patterned paper from MME.  The sweet snowman is from the SU! Snow Much Fun set, and I colored him with Copic markers.  I matted both the image and patterned paper panel with Aqua card stock.  I then stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and adhered it to the cardfront overlapping the image panel and the patterned paper. Two mini pom-poms and four red pearls finished off the card.
