Happy Saturday all,
It's a dreary day today. Not feeling at all like Christmas. Where's the snow? We are usually knee deep in the stuff by now. All we got is mud. I hate mud!!!!!!!!!! May as well stay in and make cards. Maybe I don't hate mud after all. Ha
So I'm playing along with two challenges today. Stampin' royalty and Freshly Made Sketches.
Stampin' Royalty has this great photo to inspire us.
I really wanted to use the stars but I failed. I used the gold and trees for my card. Here is my creation.
Most of my supplies are from Stampin' Up. I used Always Artichoke, Gold, Very Vanilla, and a piece of Always Artichoke DSP. And a piece of Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon. The tree branches were made using the pine tree from the Lovely as a tree set. For the ornament I heat embossed a snowflake from the Serene snowflake set in gold on gold card stock, then punched it out with a 1 1/2" circle punch. I cut a little piece of the gold to make the top and tied a piece of gold wire to make the hanger and bow. It still needed something so I add a pearl to the center. My sentiment is from The angel Company. Here is a close up of my ornament.
I think it came out nice.
Freshly Made Sketches
What a great sketch Cindy has given us to play with.
Oh I had fun with this one and I got another idea to do with it. That is if hubby doesn't decide to do something and need my help. Here's what I came up with.
Oh gosh it came out cute. Okay maybe pink and pink are not Christmas. But for me all colors are Christmas colors. So I used mostly Stampin' Up products. Rose Red , Regal Rose, and Whisper White cardstock The snow man is a very old set I could not find it in any of my cattys. I used the heart punch to punch out the little hearts I just thought it needed something in that corner. I found this little scrap of DSP. The piece was so small and just jump out at me. the package she's really holding is just way to small so I cut that little scrap into an even small scrap and tie a piece of this funky ribbon around it and woo hoo it's a big present. The sentiment is from The Angel Company and is the reason why I went with pink on pink. The back ground was to plain so I embossed using the perfect dots folder and snowflake folder ( from Cuddlebug). I colored my snow girl with markers and added a little flocking to her hat.
Other supplies I used are 1 1/2" circle, scallop, and scallop border punches.
I hope you like my cards. I'm going to go do another one of snow girl card. This time It's going say cheers and have a drink in her hand. Or maybe it'll be a him.
Be sure to stop back soon
