O Holy Night - SCC #145

 It is time for another challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges!  Our theme this month is "non-traditional colors"!  I went with basic, neutral colors on my card...

The tan paper was on my desk, so I stenciled it with gray ink using Crafters Workshop Sheet Music.  The silhouette of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus is CTMH Glory to God.  The sentiment is Raisin Boat O Holy Night.  (This is one of my favorite Christmas carols!!!)  Both image and sentiment are heat embossed. 

We're 1/12 of the way through our year, so come join us  and get started making Christmas cards!! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Did somebody say party? - TMS #693

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I guess that means it's time to party! :)  We're partying with Meliss'a favorite sketch from 2022.  You can see my first creation with this sketch here.  This time, I went for fun...


My paper is Crate Paper Bloom.  My image is FTHS Birdbrain Party Hat.  (FTHS closed a few years ago, but I still have the digi stamps on my computer and have many printed and waiting to use.)  I colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers.  

Here's the sketch... #681 from Oct 25.

You & Me - C4G #191

 It's time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!  And it is almost Valentine's Day!  Since my kids are all grown, I have not make many Valentine cards for several years, but this year I actually have made a few.  This one is for my hubby.  

Our theme this challenge is "shaped card" and here's mine...


Very simple to make.  I cut down an A2 card base with the largest die from Spellbinders Classic Saclloped Hearts (making sure the fold was below the top of the die) to get my shape.  I then cut the heart in red cardstock for the front.  I heat embossed the sentiment which is Mudra Stamps Love Equation.  I tied a couple of hearts in scrap paper with the smallest die and tied them on with baker's twine from my stash.  

We'd love to see your shaped card at our challenge at Cardz 4 Galz

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Praying for you - C4G #190

 Happy Thursday to you!   It's time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!  This time our theme is "clean and simple" or if you prefer, "CAS." :)

Here's my card...


My image is Hero Arts Mum Stem stamp and die.  I colored the stem and added just a bit of color to the base of the petals.  My sentiment is from one of the first clear stamps I ever got... Clear Dollar Pretty Little Scriptures.  It's cut out with Spellbinders Squares.  
Sorry the card looks gray.  I find white is sooo difficult to photograph well.  

Please come over and play along with your CAS creations at Cardz 4 Galz!! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

happy birthday shaker - TMS #690

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Welcome to our first challenge of 2023!!!  As usual, we are revisiting the Design Team's favorites for the past year.  Since my name comes first alphabetically in our DT, my pick is first.  I chose sketch #648 from Mar 15/22.  Here's my creation this time...  (You can check out how I used the sketch the first time here.)

I made a shaker card.   My DP is from a 12x12 pack from Crate Paper.  The rest is almost all dies... Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics, Spellbinders Standard Squares, Spellbinders Classic Circles, and Spellbinders Yana's Layered Script Sentiments.   I used FSJ Star-fetti and clear Confetti Sparkle.  My stamped sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Family & Friends.  It looked like it needed a little something more, so I added a few adhesive dots. 

Here's the sketch...

Sparkly Christmas - SCC #144

Happy New Year!  May you be blessed in 2023!! 

New month, too, so time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge.  This month we're living up to our name with the theme of  "sparkle/glitter accents"! 

Here's my sparkly/glittery card...

I created this with Poppystamps Stained Glass Snowflake, DCWV Hippie Chic glittery paper, CM corner rounder, and a freebie sentiment die.  

Here's a closeup...  I cut it out in silver paper for the frame and silver and red glitter paper to fill in the sections.  


I know we're only a week past Christmas, but it's never too early to start for this year! :) 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

hello - C4G #189

 Can you believe that 2022 is almost over?!?  This year has flown!  And it is time for another challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz.  Our theme for this final challenge of 2022 is "anything from 2022" so we want you to redo one of our themes for the year, but be sure to make it differently than before... we want a new make, no reposts.  

I chose to reuse challenge #180 from Aug 25... use 3 of anything.  I picked a stamp with 3 flowers.  


My image and sentiment are Honey Bee Stamps Framed Anemones.  I stamped the image, heat embossed it, and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I added a few sequins. 

Please come and play along with us at Cardz 4 Galz!  If you got any crafting goodies for Christmas, this would be a great challenge to play with them. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Charcuterie boards - TMS #689

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  You may wonder at the post title.  "Uhhh... how do have charcuterie boards in a sketch challenge??"  You don't.  This is our Annual Anything Goes challenge which literally means that anything crafty goes.  I decorated cutting/serving boards to make specialized charcuterie boards. :) 








I created each saying in Cricut Design Space, cut it using Cricut stencil material on my Cricut Maker, applied it to the board, painted the design, (removed the stencil), let it dry, lightly sanded it with 400 grit, then applied 3 coats of Butcher Block Oil.  

Great gifts for friends!
