White Christmas with pop of Red

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

I hope you all have been doing good. Sorry it’s been awhile, you know how it goes…..life and with Thanksgiving it’s been a bit busier. I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving with friends & family!

Today’s card is not for any challenges. Just something that I wanted to try out. It’s a conglomeration of lots of white cardstocks with a pop of color…..hence the title, lol 😉

I dry embossed the white naturals cardstock  and made it a shaker card. I filled it with snowballs and white fine glitter from my stash.

I inked up the deer with the shimmer paint, let it dry overnight then sponged the red over top after die cutting it out.

I used some glitter tape from my stash to die cut out one of the snowbanks. Then I added some shimmery embossing paste over the top. After drying over night I glued it on top on the other snowbank.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend is a blessed one ❤

 

Blueberry Christmas Tree

Hiya Stampers!

Long time no post, lol 😉

Sorry, life gets in the way sometimes of my crafting fun. Cest-la-vie :0

Today’s card is for the color challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers! Here’s the fun color combo they gave us:

colourlovers_com_cc711_0759d4aff853f948df7118a06e4e7a6d564cd0e7

Here’s my take on it:

45318509_575727292846753_2052127540008452096_n

I did use some retired Cherry Cobbler ribbon, love it! I added the dessert option which was to add sparkle to your project. I added Wink of Stella splatters and Shimmery White embossing paste.

Here’s a close up:

I also added two pearl decorative pins in the ribbon from my stash to finish it off. I added dimensions under each pop out tree branch……on this angle that I took this particular pic you can see it peeking out, but you don’t see them otherwise 😉

I just noticed that you can see the splatter on the ribbon too, lol! I actually had to do two coats of the shimmery white paste for good coverage, it made it super thick  and dimensional. I used the Thinlits from the now retired Blended Seasons bundle. I thought it really made a difference in the way the card turned out.

Anyways, thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend ❤

 

Fall Card Challenge

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

Today’s card is for two challenges. The first challenge is for Global Design Project CASE the designer. Here’s the pretty card they gave for our inspiration.

GDP Krista

Here’s my take on it:

44123872_191290045104797_1940055423595839488_n

As you can see, I kinda followed her sketch somewhat. I used the same stamp set but different images and used the same sentiment she used.

Here’s another view of the cluster:

The next challenge is over at Sunday StampsHere’s the fun color challenge they gave us to work with:

SSC189

Here’s my card again:

44228369_968578933349859_1014468182938746880_n

I love this stamp set with this color combo. I did use some retired twine looped throughout the background as well as the base of my card uses retired Naturals White Cardstock.

I’m lovin’ this fall weather, how ’bout you? Fall and Spring are definitely my favorite seasons with Christmas being my favorite holiday 😉

Well, thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day ❤

 

Fall Heart Card

Hiya Stampers!

I haven’t got to create any cards lately. I’ve been busy on and off with a big sewing project and it’s not going so well. This card didn’t go so well either, I’ll tell you in a bit. I wasn’t going to share it, but decided to go ahead. Life isn’t perfect and we all have those days, am I right? Has that ever happened to you? 😉

This card is for two challenges. The first challenge is for Global Design Project. Here’s the theme they gave us.

Here’s my take on it:

43823208_1888874184537448_2327211884555534336_n_edited

Can you see the mess up? The ink smeared on the tree when I added the shaker top part.  Oh, well, I certainly wasn’t going to start over since I did that part last. I’ll end up giving it to somebody that won’t care, lol 🙂

The next challenge is over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the sketch they gave us. As you can see, I did an interpretation of the sketch instead of straight forward.

I love this Buffalo Check background stamp. It does take a little bit of practice to get a crisp image though, I will warn you. With a stamp positioning tool it really helps a bunch!

Well, hopefully you still liked my sample card. Thank you so much for stopping by, have a blessed weekend ❤

 

Country Home Challenge

Hiya Stampers,

Today’s card is for the challenge over at Global Design Project. Here’s the fun color combo they gave us to use:

GDP157_Colour_Challenge

Here’s what I came up with:

42787984_480630622449606_1181013335206789120_n

I water colored the image using the colors they asked us to, plus a couple more for the cattails and milk jug. This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog!

Here’s a close up:

42842285_300625157192921_2564471543048437760_n

This ribbon is amazing, I love, love, love it! I used a retired doily on my project again….gotta use them up since I have a ton, lol 😉

Here’s another view:

This DSP is so beautiful I almost feel bad about cutting it……but I’m such a paper hoarder as it is that I am going to force myself to use it! I love these die cuts, they are so fun to use on your projects. I used the small cut out for my sentiment and made it a banner flag.

Well, thank you so much for stopping by! Have a very blessed day ❤

 

A Two Challenge Card

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

Today’s card is for two challenges. The first is a sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Here’s the sketch they gave us to work with:

SSC188

Here’s my take on it:

42507591_700518316979322_2841742872057741312_n

I used a circle doily (retired from SU!) for the small layer instead of the rounded corner rectangle. I sponged all the pieces to give it a kinda vintage look.

Here’s a close up:

42495051_1957180771246350_1181333542198575104_n

I used some retired red tinsel trim over the border punch.

The other challenge is over at Sweet Stampin’ Challenge Blog. We could use dies or punches on our project. I used both 😉

Here’s another view:

42495065_583408998728694_2503282612861140992_n

This stamp set from SU! is called Merry Cafe’…..I love it, even though it’s retired!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a very blessed day ❤

 

 

Country Challenge Card

Hiya Stampers,

Today’s card is for two challenges. One is over at Global Design Project. Here’s the designer’s pretty card they gave us to CASE:

GDP156

Here’s my take on it:

42341862_1896354270452006_7491890975455838208_n(1)

My card is pretty much the sketch she used. I used a different stamp set though but did add a flower image to kinda go along with hers as well.

Here’s a close up:

42230601_703385380018651_7545173081304596480_n(1)

I fussy cut the image since I embossed the background. I also added some ‘fluff’ to the cotton stems with a snow marker I found at my local craft store.

The next challenge is over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the fun color combo they gave us to use:

colourlovers_com_cc705_7d015684c4c3be2b5aa6d54330e52f009cd1532f

Here’s another view of my card:

42320522_530997117350990_8499683477841510400_n(1)

I actually colored in the image with some retired SU! alcohol markers that work fine still. I do plan on getting the new sets of Stampin’ Blends as well. I can’t wait to try them out!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed weekend! ❤
