OWH Sketch Challenge 245

So it’s been awhile!  I’m going to try to do more blogging and sharing in the coming year, we’ll see how that goes…

I’ve been using more sketches lately to help me use up some of patterned paper.  I have way too much – if that is even possible!

I received my Simon Says Stamp January Card kit today, and I’m in love with the colors of this kit – purple, turquoise, navy blue, and white.  I combined some items from the kit and used the OWH Sketch Challenge #245.  The kit came with some purple perfect pearls which I used on the sentiment.  The picture doesn’t do it justice, it is very sparkly and shiny on the card!

Day 31 – Best for last?

I did it – 31 days straight of blogging!  Now that I know I can blog everyday, I’m going to scale back and focus on quality of my posts.

I’ve saved my favorite card I made this year for last.  I love the smiley lights (from Lawn Fawn) and the glittery paper.

Day 31 - carenwithac.comThanks to everyone who has viewed/commented on my series.  Hope to have some more great Christmas cards before Christmas gets here.

Day 30 – Presents

For today’s card, I cut rectangles out of three coordinating papers, tied a silver ribbon around them, and then used pop dots to put the on the card to look like a stack of presents.

Day 29 – Faux Washi Take Two

I used the washi tape dies from My Favorite Things to create some faux washi tape.  I cut Merry Christmas out using my Silhouette Cameo.  Only two more days left in my 31 days of Christmas cards!

Day 28 – Trio of Penguins

Today’s card uses some non-traditional colors for Christmas.  Love this little penguin!  I stamped him 3 times and put him in the coordinating frame.  I then die cut his hat.

Day 27 – Merry Christmas, Happy New Year

I really like the layout for this card and have made a couple using it.  I think the layout is from a challenge, but I can’t seem to find where I originally found it.  The patterned paper is from American Crafts’ Jolly collection.  I used the Stocking Trio dies from My Favorite Things  to cut out the stockings.  I had originally stamped the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Signature Christmas set in a bright green.  It didn’t show up very well, so I stamped it offset again in brown ink.

Day 26 – Ikat

I CASE’d this from a card designed by Bethany Stellpflug that was in Paper Crafts Holiday Cards & more magazine.  I love the Irresistibly Ikat set from Papertrey Ink which is what I used at the bottom of the card.  I’ve made several cards with this set and have so many more ideas on how I want to use it.  The sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink – Think Big Favorites #9.  I added a little red bling to finish it off.
