TTTC024 Autumn Greetings For My Dad




I decided to go down the first column with
Angled, Die Cut, Greeting.
I used the angled DSP from Painted Autumn...love those watercolored stripes!
I did much die cutting with the Lantern Builder framelits dies.
I also used the matching stamp set with the lovely sentiment or greeting!
I sent this off to my dad and step mom the day I made it for a Thanksgiving card.
I hope you can play along today over at
tictactoechallenge.com

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely
and blessed weekend!

FabFri125 Merry Christmas Wishes




Great sketch over at fabfridaystampinchallenge.blogspot.com
I turned it and layered the plaid from Christmas Around the World DSP
and added the thin 1/8" Real Red ribbon to make the four "boxes".
I stamped the deer from Santa's Sleigh a few weeks ago and colored it 
with the Stampin' Blends markers.  I used Crumb Cake to color the deer 
with a little Ivory on the hooves and Cherry Cobbler to color the bow. 
I cut them out with the matching dies from Santa's Sleigh thinlits dies.
I layered him on a Whisper White oval and a black scallop oval.
The sentiment is from the same set
 stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Real Red.
Kind of a sharp looking card!

Hop you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

tinsel trim in Real Red around it.

Top- 6 7/8" by 8 1/8" piece of card stock scored 1" all around
Bottom- 7 3/4" by 9" piece of card stock scored at 1 1/2" all around

PP370 White On White Snowflakes



I love the white on white challenge over at
thepaperplayer.blogspot.com 
I grabbed a white base and layered a piece of Whisper White
embossed with the Softly Falling emboss folder on it.
I then cut out the snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies
to add on top.
I then stamped the lovely thinking of you sentiment
 from the matching set called Colorful Seasons in Soft Sky.
I added some pearls to the snowflakes to finish it off.
Love the texture, too!

Go play along this week!

'Tis The Season


I really wanted to use this set for this sentiment! 
It is a two step with the words and the detailed inside.
I stamped the first in Memento Tuxedo Black and the inside sentiment
 in Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the deer in Cherry on the Merry Music DSP
for Jingle Bells (that is the song on the sheet).
I layered it on a piece of Basic Black card stock.
I also layered a silver foil snowflake behind. Love the texture 
with the Cable Knit 3D emboss folder. I layered it all on white and then a
Basic Black base.
For more bling, some silver sequins to finish this fifth card for November 
card classes off!   

Hope you have a amazing day and thanks for stopping by!

Purple Swirly Snowflakes


I just had to use purple on this fourth card for November card classes.
I grabbed Elegant Eggplant and white for card stock but did add some 
silver with the 1/8' ribbon and bow plus a Wisteria Wonder snowflake.
I cut the snowflake border with the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits dies and layered
some eggplant card stock over and then more white for the sentiment
 plus snowflake from Snowflake Sentiments set. 
I added some more bling with a rhinestone in the middle of the snowflake.
Simple and clean card for you!
Thanks for stopping by!

Season Like Christmas



I did a little casing from Leanne's tree card over at 
literallymyjoy.com for my third class card.
I used the holly emboss folder with Always Artichoke for the background.
I layered it on a piece of Old Olive and a Sahara Sand base. 
I then stamped on a piece of Sahara Sand and layered it on more Old Olive.
I stamped the tree in both Old Olive
 and Always Artichoke and the trunk in Soft Suede.
I then stamped the snow in VersaMark ink and used the White
emboss powder to heat emboss it along with the 
snow on the ground. I finished it up
with some 3/8" mini chevron ribbon in Old Olive.
A sweet sentiment inside would finish off the card.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for stopping by!
