O’ Christmas Trees

Hey Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had a great weekend. Today’s card share is for the color challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers.

Here’s the color combo they gave us to work with:

colourlovers_com_cc761_1_2f64c61e158c04e67f2da205079e97bf2c122d6d

 

Here’s what I came up with:

73342881_2443415065772125_3513518388997521408_n

I love this color combo with this stamp set! It’s from the Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! It’s called Perfectly Plaid.

Here’s a close-up:

I did use some retired DSP for the paper as well as the ribbon from the Everything is Rosy kit that retired. Did you know that the kit is now on the clearance rack? It’s such a pretty and fun kit to play with, get it while you can…..ask me how!  I recently stopped my online SU! website. I’m just a hobby demo and decided to not pay for a website since I’m my biggest customer, lol.  I would be happy to help you order anytime through me, so please contact me to learn more! 😉

This card came together fast using the matching punch. I love simple and quick cards, don’t you?

Well, that’s it for today. I hope you like my card sample. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a blessed night! ❤

Hey there, Pumpkin

Hey there Stampers!

Today’s card is for two challenges. The first challenge is over at Global Design Project. Here’s the fun sketch they gave us to work with:

Here’s what I came up with:

72244513_389024092047534_6984522245351669760_n

I used the sweet little stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Harvest Hellos again, this time a pumpkin card instead of an apple. I love how versatile this stamp set is, especially the matching punch!

Here’s a close-up:

I added a touch of Wink of Stella on the pumpkin to add a little shimmer.

The other challenge is over at Sunday Stamps. Here’s the fall color combo they gave us for inspiration:

Here’s another view of my card:

The charcoal-blue-gray color was hard to match perfectly, but I think Pretty Peacock was  closest as I had.  I watercolored the pumpkin in the orange and yellow colors, then punched it out. Simple and quick card but lots of fun to make!

Well, thank you for stopping by and have a blessed weekend! ❤

Two Cards a Little Different

Hi There Stampers!

I hope you’ve had a great day.

Today’s card is for the challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the color combo they gave us to use:

cc760_bf16c1fc713757aa56f93a6bc4cc9b883742b882

 

 

Here’s what I came up with:

72204084_3651242858234660_6920409327199059968_n

 

I used the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set Snow Front from the holiday catty. I didn’t make a snowy scene but I think it still works.

Here’s a close-up:

 

 

I decided after making the first panel on Whisper White cardstock that I would see how it looked on watercolored paper as well. I went over the images with a little water and I love how vivid the results were! These colors are so fun to use together 😉

Here’s another view:

So, essentially the same card, just done a little differently. The dessert option was using a silhouette on your card which makes it pretty easy with this stamp set using the cute little deer image. Can you see the difference? Which one do you like the best?

Well, I hope you like my cards. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day ❤

An Apple Card

Hiya Stampers!

I hope you have had a blessed weekend!

Today’s card is for the color challenge over at Global Design Project!

Here’s what they gave us to work with:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Real Red

Here’s what I came up with:

72189935_2413533072196175_2897382687318736896_n

I used the fun new Stampin’ Up! stamp set Harvest Hellos from the Holiday Catty. The background blueberry bushel  buffalo check paper was left over from a paper pumpkin kit.

Here’s a close up:

71516220_1018533295144344_1126388266099015680_n

I stamped the apple in real red onto watercolor paper and then watercolored the apple with the ink. I also stamped the stem and leaf then watercolored them as well. I used the punch to punch it all out after it was dried.

Here’s another view:

The red bakers twine is from my stash and the red sequins are retired, I think. Well, I hope you like my card and thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed evening! ❤

Have a Lovely Day Card

Hiya Stampers!

I’m happy to announce that I will be a Guest Designer for the next two months on the SplitCoast Stampers Color Challenge team. I had so much fun last time, but this is for two months,not one. Woo-hoo, I’m so excited to be among some very talented crafters! 😉

So, here’s the color combo they gave us for this weeks challenge:

colourlovers_com_cc758_b8af0f1cdef22fc0c9a482b4bce0ab01ba5334a3

And here’s my take on it:

72116396_923857424659119_108198266365018112_n

 

My card is fairly simple and straight forward. I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Forever Lovely.  Mango Melody is the base color for my card as well as the stamped sentiment.

Here’s a close up:

71516218_524032168170113_3597327262665408512_n

 

I stamped the sweet flower image with Rococo Rose, stamping off on the mirror image on the bottom. I then stamped the leaves around the flowers in Pear Pizzazz. I punched the sentiment and added all the diecuts tucked behind in all three colors to pull it all together.

Christmas Colors but not a Christmas Card

Hiya Stampers!

The title will make sense when you see my card, lol😉

Today’s card is for the Color Challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. The colors are very Christmas-y and I intended to make a Christmas card because they are also doing a monthly challenge to make Christmas cards for the month of July.

Here’s the color combo they gave us to work with:

cc748_37dfafeefcd62e1ae6da9c4421380cd4427650d0

Here’s what I came up with:

67059645_2383572841855110_1298640274557239296_n

It took me a couple of days to make this card because I would get busy getting creative then have to stop to do something else. Then try to get my mojo going again. I had chosen a Christmas sentiment and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, as you can see that’s not the same sentiment I ended up with on this card.

Here’s a close up:

66854959_483312219093486_6622534915516792832_n

I lost the original die cut embossed sentiment that I had ready to go. I looked around and never found it among all the mess in my craft room. I honestly didn’t feel like embossing again. I had everything else done for the card, so I just picked a sentiment from the same stamp set. So, hence the title name….it LOOKS like a Christmas card, but it’s NOT a Christmas sentiment! oy-vey!

Here’s another view:

66787006_3104188276290340_4470229260488933376_n

I still like how it turned out so hopefully the recipient won’t notice the Christmas-y card with no Christmas sentiment, lol! Gotta laugh at yourself from time to time.

Anyways, I’ve been having a lot of fun being on the guest design team for this month, I get to make two more cards for July! I do hope you like my card for this color combo even though I messed up the sentiment and was too lazy to redo it. I’m just gonna go with the flow, it’s not the end of the world afterall.

*UPDATE on my nephew*

My nephew was in a serious car accident and had died on the way to the hospital, he almost lost his leg…..has numerous injuries as well. He has been recovering very well. He is out of ICU and they have moved him to a long term rehab facility. He will not be able to walk on his injured leg for 3 months, but Praise God he is alive! I thank you for your prayers and I ask you to continue to pray for him as he has a long road ahead of him for recovery.  Thank you so much, the power of prayer is real!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed evening ❤
