Snowflakes and Snowmen are our theme this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, We are sponsored this week by Bugaboo, and you can win. Go check out the details at the blog. For my card I decided to make a tag pocket card, just as a change of pace. I've used the Marshmallow Snowman birdhouse, and colored him with aqua painter and inks using Island Indigo, Real Red, Pool Party and Soft Sued. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the snowflake panel and embossed it with iridescent ice embossing powder, the sentiment is from Hero arts, and the snowflakes on the background of it and of the tag are from Jolly Old St. Nick set from Stampin' Up. The designer paper is from the Festive Prints set from Stampin Up. and the ribbon is a grosgrain real red retired ribbon.

The paper is from the Candlelight Christmas, and the First Edition. the stamp is from the new Hearts a Flutter, and cut out by the same die set, I used a piece of vanilla card stock, used the edgelits to cut out the border and placed pearls in the scallops, and then paper pierced around the edge of it and along the edge of the flag. I've added a charm that says love to finish off the card. Thanks for looking

Purple, Blue and Silver


Purple, Blue and Silver are the colors for this weeks challenge at Holly Jolly, at first I wasn't sure about the color combo, but I think It worked out pretty well. I used two different purples on my card, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum, and the blue is Marina Mist. I decided to go with the Snow Much Fun Set and have him outside of the window.  The sentiment is from the Short and Sweet Set. The
window die is one I picked up but this is the first time I've actually used it. Which is one of my goals this year is to actually use some of the things I have around, that I've bought and have sit in a drawer. So I'm doing well so far this year. hahaha, it's only the beginning we'll see how the rest of the year goes.

I Love You This Much

Meighan 01-20-13IMG_0201
I love you this much is the name of the digital stamp and sentiment I'm using for Meighan's Sketch. We are Sponsored by Fred She Said this week at Come and Get It, and this is one of her images. I just thought this little girl was so cute. Anyway I'm still working on using things in my stash this year, and on this card we have a couple of things that have been around for a long time. One is the heart charm and the other is the vellum which is the very light purple with the swirls I've used on the background.
Anyway the car was made using Wisteria wonder and Elegant Eggplant card stock, the wisteria wonder piece was embossed with an edgelits folder, I just did a bit bigger piece by embossing twice then cutting it to the size I wanted, so the hearts stood the right way up. The ribbon is the 3/8 Whisper White Taffeta . Anyway it was a fun card to put together. Thanks for looking

Using new stamps at Fairy Tale Challenges


Hi Everyone, well it's time again for another challenge at the Fairy Tale Challenge Blog. This week we have been asked to use our newest stamp in our collection. Well I have several to choose from since I had just received an order from Stampin Up. I decided on the Daydream Medallions set, it is a set designed to go with the floral framelit dies. I like that you can now get stamps to go with the dies, makes it so easy for cutting out. I used three different medallions from the set to make the main panel on the card. The colors I've used are Primrose Petals, Pool Party and Basic Grey. The Designer paper is from the Comfort Cafe paper pack,  I also used a new embossing folder which can be gotten for free if you spend $60.00 or more of Stampin Up Goodies during Sale-A-Bration, which begins on the 22nd of Jan.

A Sketch for this week at Holly Jolly

IMG_0193 (631x800) 
This is my card for Holly Jolly this week. We are sponsored by Fred She Said this week, but I chose to use my own Idea for the card this time. For Christmas from one of the residents where I work, they gave me a box of goodies as they know I do card making and such. They bought me a few stamps a bunch of paper flowers, and also some stickers. This tree is one of the stickers from the recollections set that she bought. Its very pretty and just fit the sketch perfectly. I've paired it with real red and used some of the champagne glimmer paper. Also I used the sentiment from the Petite Pairs set.

Tie a Ribbon Challenge

This week is Shell's turn to host the challenge, and she's asked us to tie a ribbon around it, It's a simple challenge which I think will be interpreted in a number of ways. I have used the Pleasant Poppies stamp from Stampin Up and colored with my markers. The background is the vintage wallpaper folder, and it was inked with my regal rose ink and then embossed, so that it is on the background and the embossing comes through in the vanilla, a very cool way of doing it.
