Season’s Greetings

So here we are!  December 1st.  Can you believe it!  How many sleeps until the big guy comes????

I am teaching a card class at my mom’s senior’s home next week, and I wanted to share with you one of the cards that we will be creating which is also my DT contribution this month for the Christmas Crafts All Year Round December challenge.

Our theme is anything goes.  I was inspired by a card that I saw on Sarah Lloyd’s blog where you can find here.

I knew I wanted to use this cork paper that I have had in my stash forever!  It’s really hard to see but I ran it through my twigs embossing folder first.  The sentiment set is from Stampin Up which I stamped right onto the cork paper.  Then I punched out a couple of the twigs from my Stampin Up punch.    I have had this deer die for awhile now and have used it on many different projects, so I cut a bunch out of some gold glitter paper.  He is popped up against the white circle.  I took the little snowflakes from his body and added it as an embellishment with some sequins.  I also used washi tape for the strip.  The circle background is from the Jolie’s Boutique paper pack that I’ve used for a few projects now.

I hope you like it and drop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created and link up to  win this month’s prize.

Cardz 4 Guyz – Christmas Critters

Hello all!

Here we are with another challenge at Cardz4Guyz this week – our theme is Christmas Critters!

There are so many awesome digital and rubber stamps with critters and so I can’t wait to see what you create!

For my project, I’m sharing a box card with you that I made in my card class last month.  This was really fun to do and is built on a die set from Lawn Fawn as are the images.  We did a bit of embossing and stamping and added some awesome glitter pieces for some great color and texture.

I hope you like it and will play along with us this week!

Winter’s Peace

Oh my gosh! Here we are in the last full week of October.  This year has just flown by, or maybe it’s just me….

I’m still working primarily on Christmas cards to prepare for my craft fair in November, so I have a lovely one to share with you today for the Cardz4Guyz challenge this week.  Our theme is Into the Woods – creating a project that has an aspect of the woods to it.  It could be a woodland creature, leaves, trees, rustic etc.  Lots of ideas to play around with.

I’ve had this die cut sitting on my desk waiting to be used for quite awhile now.  It was sent to me in a swap and I’ve been longing to use it up so I just decided that this was it.  I chose to go with a White on White card, probably because I rarely do them but they just look so good!

I paired the image with the falling snow enbossing folder from Stampin Up as well as the Christmas Thinlits PEACE which I cut out of some silver foil.  The bling is from my stash and then I went over the image with a bit of Wink of Stella for just a hint of shimmer.

I hope it makes you smile and I also hope that you will hop over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created and also to play along with us.  We would love to see what you are creating this week!

Forest Frolic UYS #332

I’ve had this little deer die cut for awhile now and have been dying to use it, so I thought it would work great for the Use Your Stuff challenge this week which is

Forest Frolic

The theme is to create a project that features something that you would find in the forest, could be a critter, trees, bushes, lumberjacks, whatever sparks your imagination…..

dav

The deer and the grass were sent to me in a swap awhile ago so I was excited to finally get to use them.  The embossed background is from provocraft and I’ve had it forever.  The enamel dots are I believe doodlebop….believe it or not, all these items have been hanging around my desk for awhile now, so I was happy to create a fun little card with them.

Be sure to hop on over to the UYS blog and see what the rest of the design team found in the forest and to play along with us! See you there!

Today is a Good Day (SGC)

As you are reading this, I am in deep preparation for my weekend crop with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine…although it is actually called the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival, we just call it Carnival!  It’s on Friday & Saturday this week.  My two friends and I have been going for several years and it is one of the 5 crops that we attend yearly!  It’s a big deal! 🙂

Southern Girls Challenge is new today….Team Trace is wanting to see spots!  Spots & Dots is our theme this week!

Our sponsors are

and 

My image is from Paper Shelter called Hammock Days.  I colored her with my copics and then fussy cut and laid her out against my embossed dot background.  I added a few banners from some scraps in my stash that had some small dots on them, and then a cute little word tag from Tim Holtz.

A sweet little card for a sweet image.  I hope you will stop by the blog and play along with us this week!

OK, we are in June I know, but I’m slowly working my way through my SCT sampler packs, starting at the beginning.   The January sampler had some great pieces.  I was down to my last little bits to create this card for the Sketch -N- Scrap sketch challenge for June.

 

I embossed the cardstock with my Darice butterflies folder.  The DP and the sequins are from the kit and the sentiment is from MFT.  The butterfly focal is from K&Co, which I thought worked well with these little pieces.

Hello

Hi there!  It’s a new week and a new challenge on the Use Your Stuff blog today.  I’m hosting this one, and our challenge is to upcycle/recycle an aspect of your project.

For me, I found a couple of paint chip samples on my desk and chose to use them with some die cuts to create a couple of cards.

For the first one, the I used them to cut out the HELLO sentiment as well as the feathers, both of which are from Stampin Up.  I added some embossing, twine and some Nuvo dots to finish it off.

My second card, I made some shaker pockets and die cut some stars and balloons from what was left over after the first card.  The DP is just from my stash and the sentiment is from Stampin’ Up.
