MTCC #60

Hi! It is time for our new challenge at Make the Card Challenges! This one is great (they all are right?! )

This week we are going for a simple technique…

Oh this has so many possibilities! For me, I had this embossing folder/die set that I hadn’t used in awhile and so I wanted to focus on that and made a shaker card. The sentiment is from Ink Road Stamps and is a quote from one of my favorite movies of all time – Pride and Prejudice!

I love the red/white/black combo so I added some pink/white/red sequins in my shaker and some glitter red hearts to give it a bit of pop.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us at MTCC . The DT has some awesome projects for you to check out and inspire you and you’ll find the link to play along!

The Perfect Blend

Ya, it’s still cold and snowy here.  Sigh.  I’ve about had it with winter.  One of the down falls of living in Calgary, it’s winter for like 9 months out of the year it seems!

Today I have a fun card for the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge!  It’s been awhile since I’ve used my KK stamps so I thought it was time.

The theme is glitter!  There is also a sketch on the blog that I used as well.  You can find the deets on their challenge here.

The stamp is from Kraftin Kimmie called One Cup at A time.  I think I bought this one about a year and a half ago, because I wanted to start doing all these coffee inspired cards and then I kinda just forgot about it! I’m glad I brought it out again, and it definitely has been getting a work out.   I paired it with the Stampin Up coffee papers (I’m trying to use these up now, so you’ll be seeing a lot of coffee cards in the next few days).  This was a pinterest inspired card, which I altered a bit to fit the sketch.  I used a square of glittered cardstock for the challenge in a coffee brown color (again, something else that I’ve not been utilizing enough).  I also added a few Nuevo dots for a bit of texture. I also used the Stampin Up Hardwood stamp to ink onto one of the banners ( I actually had to crack this one open as I’d not even used it since I bought it last year) as well as the stampin up banners framelits.  I hope you like it, and don’t forget to play along in their challenge!
