Merry Christmas Challenge #39

It’s another week of anything goes for the Merry Christmas Challenge.  I got to spend the past weekend with 16 other very talented craft ladies.  I was able to make several Christmas cards that I will be sharing over the next few weeks of challenges.

For this card, I stamped the large falala sentiment from Simon Says with Lawn Fawn inks in non-traditional Christmas colors. I love how the large stamp fills the entire width of the card.

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #353

I loved the sketch for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge this week.  I made two cards for this sketch.

For the first card, I used an old set from My Favorite Things called Let’s Grab Drinks.  I paper-pieced the main image with paper from My Mind’s Eye. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the parts of the image I didn’t paper-piece.

MFTWSC_353_1The second card is a Christmas card.  For this card I used the Santa’s Elf stamp set.  I colored the elf with Prismacolor pencils.  The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design.

Merry Christmas Challenge #37

I’m back again this week for the Merry Christmas Challenge.  This week I have four quick and easy Christmas cards.

For these cards I used Reflections Christmas Collection kit from Echo Park.  Using a kit is a great way to make quick cards with coordinating paper.

MCC_37_2017For the first card, I used one of the 3×4 cards that was in the kit.  I matted it on some red cardstock.  I cut a strip of the red and cream striped pattern paper and glued it to the cardstock.  I used some foam tape to put the 3×4 piece on the card.  I added 3 drops of Nuvo drops on the left side.MCC_37_2017_1 One the second card, I cut a circle out of the holly berry paper. I popped that up on the card base with some foam tape.  I die cut another circle out of green card stock and glued it to the inside of the pattern paper.  I used my powder tool on the back of the poinsettia sticker to remove the sticky.  I then popped it up using some foam tape.  I cut out a banner in the green cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment. MCC_37_2017_2For the third card, I used one of the border strips from the kit for the sentiment.  I added a strip of the green paper that I used a scalloped stitched die on.  I covered the card base with striped pattern paper from the kit, then popped up the sentiment strip using some foam tape.  MCC_37_2017_3For  the fourth card, I matted the Santa paper from the kit onto some red cardstock and glued that to the card base.  I die cut a stitched circle from red cardstock and popped up the Santa Claus sticker on it using some foam tape.MCC_37_2017_4Check out the rest of the teams creations on The Merry Christmas Challenge blog and join in on the fun.

Ghostly Greetings

I love making Halloween cards (almost as much as Christmas cards!)  I think it’s the bright orange, green, and purple colors that draw me in.

For this card, I used the Fab-BOO-lous Friends stamp set from My Favorite Things.  I colored the cute images with Spectrum Noir markers, and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  I used my Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink with some translucent texture paste.
