Sketched Joy

Another Christmas card, this time using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!

A lot of shine on this by using all Brilliance inks and so hard to get a good photo.  Used a really old SU alpha set for the J and Y, the globe, sentiment and stripes from various Concord & 9th sets and the rays are a stencil..  

Thanks for taking the time to take a closer look!

Tree in Snow

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

And also the theme from Cardz 4 Guyz - Challenge #182 - Oh! Christmas Tree

Cardz 4 Guyz

Stamped the tree and colored with Distress Inks.  Added some Nuvo Glitter paste on an angle in the lower left corner for snow.  Used some light blue Shimmer Mist by dropping some on my kraft mat and using a water brush to color the rest of the panel.  Shimmer and glittery surfaces are so hard to get a good photo!

Thanks for dropping by!

Just Us Girls #419 - Trend Week

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and  Lisa is our hostess and she is challenging us to do some Silhouette Stamping!

Come on over to the JUGS blog to see what our November Guest Designer - Trina Pham and the rest of the Design Team have created using Silhouette Stamping.

I started with a piece of tissue paper that had been placed on some spritzed Oxide Inks on my kraft mat.  Adhered to a piece of cardstock after it dried.  Stamped the big floral image with black ink and then added some black Wink of Stella.  Stamped the sentiment also in black.

Come play along with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would put you in the running for a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Big Birthday!

CAS on Sunday Challenge #120 - Numbers is the perfect challenge for a milestone birthday!

For your blog

Stamped the Numbers background from Unity Stamps with Memento Toffee Crunch on kraft.  Stamped the sentiment and stripes from CASual Fridays Stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black using my MISTI to stamp multiple times to get a deeper black.  Layered onto some black cardstock and some kraft striped patterned paper and onto a kraft base.

CAS(E)d Christmas

Working on my Christmas cards and loved the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!

I used a premade green watercolor card base from Concord & 9th.  Stamped the Stampendous holly and berry image and used Prismacolor pencils to color it, then adding some red Wink of Stella to the berries.  Stamped the sentiment directly onto the card over the image and heat embossed with red ep, but it didn't show up very well, so stamped it onto some white, die cut it with a fishtail flag die, stamped some little holly leaves, added a couple drops of Viva Decor paper in red then added a little touch of red Stickles to the berries.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Us Girls #418 - Word Week

It's time for Word Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has chosen the timely "Thankful" to inspire us.

I would like to welcome our November Guest Designer - Trina Pham.  Visit the JUGS blog to see what Trina and the rest of the talented Design Team have created with the Word Thankful.

Stamps are from Concord & 9th.  The leaf was heat embossed with copper ep then watercolored with Twinkling H2Os in pumpkin  Heat embossed the sentiment to make it stand out better then added some splatter with the same Twinkling H2O paint.  Torn 2 of the edges of the green mat.  Sponged some brown ink through a crackle stencil on some rust cardstock.  It was really difficult to get a good photo of this with the shimmering paint and copper embossing.

Come show us your Thankful projects and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Playing along with the challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch!

Grabbed some snowflakes from various sets, the big one is from Stampendous.  Stamped them with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and added the sentiment with Memento Nautical Blue.  Matted onto some navy cardstock and a white card base.  This came together very quick and easy!
