PP464 Christmas Greetings

When I saw this challenge, I thought right away about this 
large greeting from the host set called Greatest Part of Christmas.
I stamped it in VersaMark ink and used the white emboss powder
on Seaside Spray card stock cut on Stitched Rectangle dies.
I then layered it on the wonderful Fells Like Frost DSP
then layered on the Rococo Rose base.
 Simple but shows off the winter scene well.

Hope you can play along this week over at 

Thanks for stopping by!

FMS407 Blessed Deer Wishes

Great sketch today over at 
I love the Dashing Deer bundle and I added some lovely snowflakes.
I went with Blackberry Bliss ink for something different.
 I stamped my two deer on white card stock then cut them out with the matching dies.
I then added them to the white background.
I stamped the snowflakes from Colorful Seasons in Seaside Spray
and then layered a snowflake die over in the same color. 
I used the Seasonal Layers dies as well as the Christmas Layers dies
for these Seaside Spray snowflakes. 
I then stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas set on white card stock 
in Blackberry and cut it out with the skinny label from Lakeside dies.
I finished it off with some rhinestones for bling!

Hope you can play along!

GDP211 Always & Forever


I designed this card for my daughter to give a friend
at her bridal shower. The wedding is all in black and white so 
I thought the card should be, too. 
I started with the thick white base and layered a piece of 
Basic Black card stock then a piece of Whisper White 
embossed with the Tufted emboss folder. 
I cut the Black Stitched Nested Label and then stamped the 
image from a retired set called This Day Forward in VersaMark ink.
I heat embossed the image in white emboss powder with the heat tool.
I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on a strip of white.
I finished it off with some black gems. 

I hope you can play along over at

Happy Wicked Birthday

I designed this birthday card for a friend and customer 
who has a birthday this week and is obsessed with Halloween.
I used some retired DSP (probably at least 10 yrs old) and layered 
on the Pumpkin Pie card stock and then the 5" square Basic Black base. 
I cut the spider web in Basic Black card stock with a die I borrowed
from a friend as well as the spider. I cut the wicked sentiment
from the Wicked die in Pumpkin Pie. I stamped the 
the Happy and Birthday from Well Said set in Memento Tuxedo 
Black ink on Whisper White card stock and snipped them out. 
I finished off with a few black rhinestones. 

Hope you have a wicked day!

Christmastime Bags For Class

I decorated the red gift bags from the dollar store 
with retired DSP called Painted Seasons for my guest for classes this week.
I cut the Call Me Clover Stitched Nested Label die
and then the white label from Beautiful Boughs dies.
I stamped the sentiment from Greatest Part Of Christmas host 
set in Real Red ink on the white label and then stamped the 
pine branch from Peaceful Boughs set in Granny Apple Green 
ink sponged with a little Call Me Clover ink. 
I then cut the pine comes in Early Espresso and Soft Suede card stock
with the Beautiful Boughs dies and added
 a Cherry Cobbler/white twine bow to finish off.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed day!

CTS175 & Fabfri174 Wicked

Loved combining these two challenges and how the card came out!
I was not sure what to do for the color challenge but the use of the 
trees from Into The Woods dies did pop into my head for the sketch.
I started with the white background and stamped the splatter stamp in
Melon Mambo ink from the Artisan Textures stamp set.
I then cut 5 Basic Black trees from the Into The Woods dies
to line across before adding a double Wicked die in 
Basic Black card stock with Pumpkin Pie card stock. 
I added the Melon Mambo spider to the bottom and gave him some 
bling with a black rhinestone!
I layered the white background on a piece of Basic Black and then a 
Melon Mambo base. 
Hope you can play along over at 
for the sketch challenge this week
as well as for the 
color challenge!

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Holy Night

I had to do a card in purple for card classes!
Last card for this week and I used the So Many Stars bundle.
I started with the white base and added a Gorgeous Grape
piece of car stock before layering on the white background.
I stamped with the silver ink the mini stars stamp over the top of the 
background. I stamped the sentiment in Grape on the bottom.
I wanted to use this layout so my guest could pick any sentiment
from the set (or another set) to place on their creation.
I stamped to size stars in Grape ink and cut them with the 
Stitched Stars dies. I cut two stars from the Grape card stock
plus one in vellum.  The vellum is added to the large Grape star.
I finished it off with a metallic pearl in silver.

Hope you have a blessed Monday!
