Good morning everyone! I've decided to step down as DT member with the Moving Along with the Times Challenge, so this is my last post for them. Come join us with your embossed cards!
I took a sketch I found off Pinterest for this one, using some Stampin' Up papers and a sentiment I borrowed from a friend. I used a fun paisley embossing folder for the background.
Happy New Year! Welcome back to my studio...
I'm in the middle of a remodel, so excuse the dust!
I packed up my essentials and hauled them into my bedroom so I could create a few cards if the mood strikes,
or in this case, if I had a challenge deadline to meet.
Today starts a new term, and that means a new challenge, at House of Cards. I just love working with this team, and the challenges are always unique and fun...come play along with us!
Here are some wonderful natural colors to inspire you, we'd also love to see embossing in your work!
Knowing I needed to add some birthday cards to my stash, I decided to do a nice wintery masculine design with some Stampin Up sets: the sentiment is from Butterfly Basics, and the pinecones and branches are from Watercolor Winter. I used a Versamark pen on the edge of the green cardstock to add just a hint of gold embossing powder. I also sprayed the white background with a bit of Shimmer Spritz for a very subtle shine. Thanks for stopping in today, and hopefully by my next post I'll be back in my newly refurbished craft room!
Thanks for stopping in today. There is a new challenge beginning for the month of November at CASE-ing Christmas. This inspiration was created by Donna:
Going with the tree theme, here's my card:
I started out with the Stampin Up Festival of Trees set, stamping dark green on a lighter green cardstock and punching the trees out. I created snow for the background using a white ink with a dotted stamp on kraft. I used some strips of paper under the trees, and the little wooden stars were given a bit of sparkle with some gold stickles.

Good morning crafters! Time for a new challenge over at House of Cards! This month we've got a fun technique for you to try. You can check out a tutorial here from one of our Design Team members.
I started off with the banner sentiment from the White Christmas set from Stampin Up that I thought would be perfect behind my punched window. Then I found a circle die that fit nicely and punced that out of the green. I used a Great Impressions stamp (Berry Sprig D281) to go around the inside edge of the die cut circle and embossed it in red. I just love this pretty patterned paper I used for my background. The red flowers are glittery and add just the right amount of festive sparkle!
The Glory of Christmas: Glitter/Shine
Cute Card Thursday: Sparkles
Fab n Funky: Christmas
Ruby's Rainbow: Birds of a Feather
It's Anything Goes week over at the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge, and it's also the end of my Guest Designer term with them. I've enjoyed the great challenges and working with these creative ladies. Thanks to each of you!
I decided to share a Christmas card today using Stampin Up's Seasonally Scattered set. I used an emboss resist technique with the stamp using Distress inks over white embossing powder. I'm really loving these shades of blue lately. The background for this card is an embossed patterned paper that has a bit of glitter in it...so pretty! Thanks so much for checking out the challenge this week!

Dream Valley: Blue
Ooh La La: Embossing
Ready for another challenge with us at 4 Crafty Chicks? This week it's pearls.
I think this theme calls for a frilly feminine design. I used a Stampin Up image from the Tea Party set layered over a doily die, accenting both with two different sizes of pearls. Thanks for dropping by, I hope you'll come play along this week!
