Glory to the newborn King - SCC #141

 Christmas is getting closer and closer!!  :)  And to help us prepare, it's time for another challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge! Our theme this month is "holly and/or ivy."  

I've got some holly on my card...

My main panel is Scrapbook Customs Christmas Watercolor DP.  I cut Yvonne Creations Holly Jolly Music Border die in black, then red and green and trimmed the birds and holly.  I added used my Wink of Stella pen on the holly for some shimmer.  (See closeup below.) My heat embossed sentiment is Neat & Tangled Joyful Sentiments. 

Maybe it's my laptop or my eyesight, but this looks kind of blah on my computer, but I really am pleased with how it turned out IRL. 


Come on over and play along at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Happy birthday - TMS #676

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've got a fun birthday card for you...



My image is Digi Doodle Special Delivery.  If you visit my blog regularly, you know I often use a printed-and-waiting digital image because when I would print digital stamps, I usually made multiples to have on hand (or in case I'd mess up).  But let me tell you just how OLD this one is!  Click HERE to see when I used this image first... and most likely printed the one on today's card.  Yeah... 2012!  Ten. Years. Ago.  

My paper is MME Portobello Road cut out with Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangles.  My image is cut out with Die-versions Stitched Circles.  My sentiment is Sweet n Sassy Birthday Greetings and cut out with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  The banners are Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fishtail Banners. 

Here's the fun sketch...

Smiles across the miles

 This card I just made for fun (and to enter into a few challenges).  I have to say it was VERY fun to make!!  I saw this die set months ago and wanted it, but it was out of my budget at the time.  A couple of weeks ago, I was in Hobby Lobby, and they had quite a few dies with sale stickers.  This was one of them.  I was very excited!!  I bought it then went looking for the coordinating stamp set.  I found it (It was on sale, too!!), and voilĂ ... my card...


I created the BG with Paper Rose Abstract Trees stencil and TH stormy sky Distress Oxide Ink and TH peeled paint Distress Ink.  The car die that I was so happy to find is Spellbinders Sunday Drive.  Both sentiments are from Sunday Drive All-Occasion Sentiments.  "Miss you" is cut out with Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fishtail Banners.  Both were stamped and heat embossed.  

Challenges:

Word Art Wednesday - AG uplifting/family friendly

Dies R Us #200 - AG w/ die brand DRU sells (Spellbinders)  Sadly, this is their last challenge. 

Happy Little Stampers - HSL Sept stencil challenge

Happy Little Stampers - HLS Sept AG with Dies

Simon Says Stamp Monday - stamp it

welcome baby - C4G #181

t's time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!!   Our theme is "baby girl" so I made a shower card.  The church we now attend is larger than our last, so lots of babies!  It's good to have cards like this on hand...


My DP is AC My Baby.  Both panels are cut with Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangles.  The onesies are Memory Box Baby Clothes.  The large letters are from an unbranded set, and the "girl" is from Pebbles New Addition. 

Come play along at Cardz 4 Galz and add to your gal card stash!!

CAS Christmas - SCC #140

 Hello!  It's the 1st and time for another challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!! As you may have guessed, our theme for this month is "clean and simple."  I have to admit that CAS is not my forte, but I tried, and I'd love to see you try, too!

My trees are from Raisin Boat "Nature's Reflection" and stamped with Hero Arts Lime to Forever Green Ombre ink.  I used my VersaMark pen on the trees and clear heat embossed for some shine and texture.  (See below.)  "Merry" is Pink and Main Christmas Script and "Christmas" is from a "Happy Christmas" die freebie that I got in an order long ago.  I cut them both 3 times in 110 lbs cover stock and glued the layers for some dimension.  


Time is flying, so create a Christmas card and share it with us at Sparkles Christmas Challenge

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Wedding day wishes - TMS #673

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This week I've got a wedding card to share.  I tend to struggle with wedding cards, but I am happy with how this one turned out.  Take a look...


This was just white cardstock.  I dry embossed the bottom half with the Paper Studio Script.  The flowers are The Ton Peony Memories Cardmaking.  "Best wishes" is from Sunny Studio Heartfelt Wishes.  "on your wedding day" is from Papertrey Ink Wedding Stamp Set.  The ribbon is from my stash, and I added some Liquid Pearls to finish it off. 

Here's our sketch...  ((Which do you think I created first... my card or the sketch?))
