Just For Fun January Challenge

Hi and Happy New Year! Wow, this last year went by really fast! I wish you all the best in 2019. I want to show you a card that I made for the Just For Fun stamp challenge. The theme is to use blue and silver.

I stamped the Just For Fun Tree Line stamp and added silver embossing powder. I used small circle hand punches for the "snow" and layered this piece on silver glitter card stock. Then I layered this onto a dark blue background.

In this picture you can see the glitter card stock better.

I hope you will join in our challenge. I would love to see what you create. You might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Have a wonderful day and Happy New Year!

Shabby Chic #24

Hi Everyone! This is my last shabby chic card for this series! Boy has this year flown by! I hope you are enjoying the Christmas season. It seems like each year Christmas comes earlier and earlier. Well, here is my card. The stamp is one I bought a long time ago at a stamp convention and I don't know the company since the stamp is just rubber.

I colored the image using alcohol markers and then I cut it out using the Gina Marie stitched oval die. I colored in the "stitches" using a brown marker. The image was layered on an Ellentina die and a Spellbinder die. These were layered on white card stock and then added to the red card base. The greenery was cut from an Impression Obsession die. I then added a paper poinsettia and some cord.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a Blessed Christmas!

We Three Kings

 Hello and Merry Christmas! I hope your Christmas is full of love, joy and peace.

The stamp I used on this card is the 3 Wise Men on Camels by Just For Fun Stamps. I stamped it using green ink and cut it out using a Spellbinders oval die. This was adhered to the fancy Ellentina die. The white background was embossed using a distressed stripe embossing folder. The edges were sponged using brown ink and then layered on a green card base. A Tim Holtz punch was used for the greenery and a paper poinsettia was added at the top.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed Christmas!

Shabby Chic #23

Hi Everyone! Christmas is approaching fast! I want to show you a shabby chic shaker card that I made. I have been making more shaker cards lately and love them. They are so much fun!

I made the card shape using the Precious Marieke flowers frame background and sponged brown ink around the edges. The white flower frame goes with it. I then cut a pink frame using a frame die from Nellie Sellen. Lastly, I cut a white circle using the Gina Marie stitched circle die. The snowman stamp is from Inkadinkado. The image was colored using alcohol inks. The saying is from Just For Fun Stamps. Flowers, ribbon and pearls were used for accents. I used plastic snowflakes and clear sugar beads inside the shaker.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you are enjoying the Christmas season. Have a wonderful day!

Tis The Season

Hi and welcome to my blog. I want to show you a fun card I made using this cute snowman from Just For Fun Stamps. Doesn't he look jolly?

I made the background by cutting a strip of fun foam, adhering it to an acrylic block and stamping it in various angles using oxide inks. I used a dotted swiss embossing folder at the top and bottom of the card to add interest. I colored the snowman using alcohol markers, fussy cut him and added him to the card. The saying is from a Die Versions die. I also added 3 sticker snowflakes and hot pink rhinestones.

This month the challenge is to make any holiday card. I hope you will join us and you might win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a jolly day!

Warming Up!

Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope that you are enjoying the Christmas season. It has been unusually cold here in the South for this time of year. I made a card with this cute little mousie warming IN a cup of cocoa! LOL! I have been enjoying my cups of cocoa lately.

I used the Gina Marie dotted die for the background and cut it using metallic blue card stock. I stamped the image, colored it with alcohol markers and fussy cut it. I used the stem of a flower die for the "steam" in the cup. The white bottom portion of the card was run through a snowflake die. The greenery is a Gina Marie die cut from green card stock. I splattered white acrylic paint over the greenery and cup for snow. I made "marshmallows" using 4 pop dots and adding white sparkle flocking to them. You can see one marshmallow in the cup and 3 on the greenery.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and warm day!
