The sketch is from Don't Waste Your Thursday Challenge, and this card also contains two different stamps to make the scene so it applies to the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge as well. And also for the Winter Wonderland challenge, as their theme this week is Walking in a Winter Wonderland.
Anyway these are the deets on the card:
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Dasher
Card Stock: Marina Mist, Night of Navy
Accessories: Stickles, Ribbon from stash, and Snowflake brads, also from my stash.

Stamping 411 Challenge again

This is my take on the Stamping 411 sketch this week. I have a lady at work who asked for some congratulations cards and I didn't have a one in my stash, so here is the first one that I've made, will make about a half dozen more and then she can choose, which she likes. The flower was colored using aqua painter and ink from the rose red ink pad to match the colors of the paper and ink used.

Hi Everyone, Well this card came about cause I found a sketch on Splitcoaststampers that I really liked, but of course I modified it a bit, it was #150, anyway I really liked it and love the paper that is in the background, it just fit the tree theme, which I was going to do the thoughts and prayer tree but it wouldn't fit on to the small rectangle, and I didn't want to make it any bigger, as I like the double frame idea. Anyway so I thought ok I could use the trendy tree set, and this was the result from it. I was telling Julie that her card fit a couple of challenges out there, that I was looking, when she mentioned her card with the thoughts and prayers in it, a beauty she did too. Anyway so I guess mine fits those challenges as well. They are Cute Card Thursday, and Daring Card maker Challenge,and it also follows the Stamping B's Challenge as always thanks for looking.
For this card the following was used:
Stamp set, trendy trees
Card stock Garden green, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White
Paper: Woodland Walk
Accessories: Stamp majig, sponges, small oval and large oval punch.

Well my friend Julie and I are always issuing each other challenges, or finding ones on blogs to give us inspiration. Yesterday I picked this one for us, It is the sketch from Just Us Girls Challenge. It was fun to do. Here's my take on the sketch, and you can find Julie's blog on my sidebar and go hop over there and give her some love. She did a great job on it. I'm not much into untraditional Christmas colors myself, but this card is cool

The new Hostess level one set, silhouette sayings set, the Oval All stamp set, For punches I used the lace trim border punch the scalloped oval border punch and the large oval punch, The card stock is Night of Navy and Pacific Point. Ink was Pacific point and always artichoke.

Musical Birthdays


 These are two cards I made following the Stamping 411 Sketch this week
Both are music related birthday cards. One for a male and one for a female. I used  the new designer paper Elegant Soire for both cards. I love this new paper.
In the first one, the colors are baja breeze, crumbcake, and night of navy, for the card stock, the ribbon is navy, the birthday greeting is outlined by one of the many hardware pieces. Then I used not quite navy, crumb cake and baja breeze ink. love them together.

For the second one I changed the night of navy to basic black, and used the Guitar silhouette for the main image. The stars on the top corner are punched, large and the now retired small star. The greeting is from a retired set as well called riveting. Too bad, cause I like the set as it has all these circular greetings to them. Anyway thanks for looking. Cindy
