Snowman Christmas - CCC #7


Happy Sunday to you!  I pray you're having a blessed day!!

It's time for Christmas Card Challenges.  I've got a happy snowman wishing you "Merry Christmas" today...


This was a fun and rather simple card to make.  I colored my image...  From the Heart Stamps "Rejoice Snowman" with Spectrum Noir markers, trimmed around his bottom, and cut him our with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  I cut my 3 hills (scrap paper) with Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes dies.  The background panel is Carta Bella "Let It Snow" DP and embossed with Sizzix Snowflakes EF.   Some heavy thread and a snowflake brad finished him off. 

Our challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenges #7 has the optional twist of color.  The only real rule is that you make a Christmas/holiday card...



Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Floral thank you - TMS #391


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!   Since our temps are way above normal and all our snow is melting (*sobs*), I've got a rather spring-like card for you...


My image is Ladybug Branch from Sami Stamps.  It's colored using Spectrum Noir markers and cut out using Die-Versions Stitched Nesting Circles and the frame is Spellbinders Standard Circles.  My paper is Paper Crate Flea Market.   My sentiment is Raisin Boat.   The lace and enamel dots are from my stash.  


Here's our wonderful sketch this week by Melissa...  (As you can see, I turned it.  Feel free to stretch it, turn it, and use other shapes... it just must be recognizable.) 

 


Our sponsor for this week is Sami Stamps!  Such sweet images!!

This little piggy...


So... have you ever made a card for a couple of challenges and then forgot about it??  That's what happened to me.  I made it last evening, but just remembered it... with about 30 minutes to spare.  Lots of time!! ;) 

Here's my card...


Sorry... I forgot to take a pic of the inside!!!!   It says, "Happy Birthday."  I used a Raisin Boat clear sentiment.  (I'll try to take a pic and update my post.)

My image is From the Heart Stamps Hogs and Kisses Pigwit.  He's printed on Kraft and colored with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out using Spellbinders Standard Circles.  My DP is Paper Crate Flea Market.  My flourish is Darice and the enamel dots are Recollections.

Challenges...
FTHS Free Stamp of the Month February - must use Hogs and Kisses Pigwit
I {heart} Sketches #162 - sketch, theme, and/or color inspiration (I used the sketch)


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

I love you - TMS #390


Happy Tuesday to you!  And Happy Valentine's Day!   Whether you go for the roses and candy and cards or not, be sure to tell your loved ones that you love them!  Of course, you should be doing that EVERY day of the year!!!  Several times a day, IMHO! ;)

It is Tuesday, so it's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!   I've actually got 2 cards today.  Here's the first...


My paper, vellum, and ribbon were all from my scrap boxes.  :)  My heart is Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Hearts.  The "I Love You" is  Die-Versions Sweet Wordlets.   It's not visible in the pic, but the "I Love You" paper shimmers. 

Challenges...
Aud Sentiments #173 - Valentine or love
4 Crafty Chicks #337 - love
Glitter 'N' Sparkle #226 - Love is in the air!
Cuttlebug Mania - Roses are red (red as focus)
Inkspirational #128 - photo inspiration


Here's our fun sketch for this week...



Our sponsor this week is Pink and Main!!   Lots of wonderful stamps and dies and papers!





I made the Valentine card to match the sketch exactly, but I made my second card with a fun Pink and Main set that I have...  just changed out the shape...  (which feel free to do with our sketches)


Supplies...
Pink and Main "Christmas Script" stamp and "Merry Christmas" die
Recollections Ebony embossing powder 
Recollections Cozy Lodge DP
Recollections paper bow (this bow matches the Kraft paper much better IRL... I'm a terrible photographer!)

Dashing through the snow - CCC #6


Happy Sunday to you!  For those of you here in the Northeast, stay warm through this snow storm we're getting!!  (I must admit I'm happy with forecast of several inches!)

Here's my card for today's Christmas Card Challenges #6...


My image and sentiment are "Old-Fashined Christmas" from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with Recollections Ebony embossing powder.   I masked a moon and inked with TH faded jeans.  I inked the trees with TH peeled paint.  (Wasn't totally thrilled with the trees... too much ink, IMHO.)  My DP is Carte Bella "Snow Fun" and my ribbon, twine, and button are from my stash.

Challenges...
Brown Sugar #237 - rhinestones and/or ribbon (I used ribbon)
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas #320 - anything goes Christmas/opt. cute (I did AG)
Addicted to Stamps and More #228 - holiday
Mod Squad - "Let me see your Text{urize}" (dry or heat embossing - I did heat)

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!
