Speedy the Cats friend's challenge #87: anything goes!

I made this for Speedy the Cats Friends Challenge #87-anything goes.  Also made for SCS WT355 which is to use beads.  I love this Winter Crocus set from MFP's a Heinrich Co.  Quite versatile and with some fabulous sentiments.

Take care,

DRS Designs Challenge #5: Snowflakes

Good morning and welcome to the 5th challenge for Thursday over at DRS Designs!  Their challenge today is to use snowflakes.  I did a quick card as I have company coming from out of state. Dry embossed the textured teal layer with the snowflake folder and using the 4 in 1 snowflakes, stamped one snowflake in craft ink and embossed in white.  The vertical thinking of you was stamped in bermuda bay.  The white snowflake is on dimensionals and a few rhinestones were added to finish it off.  Looks prettier IRL! Head on over to the DRS Designs blog and play along...you could be a winner!

Take care,

CAS for FOSTV and SCS WT354

I made this card today for two challenges.  SCS WT is to use a digi image.  I don't own any so I computer generated the little sentiment and flowers on the oval.  The other challenge is for FOSTV challenge 12 a CAS card.  I used the brand new set from MFP's a Heinrich Co. Winter Crocus.....lovely set.  I colored it up with pearlescent watercolors and used a strip of Cosmo Crickets Wanted dp.
Enjoy your day!

DRS Designs Thursday Challenge #4: heat embossing

My card today features DRS Designs Three wisemen peacke image 504K and their woven plaid background stamp 613P.  Our challenge on this busy Thursday before Christmas is to heat emboss. The image was inked up with craft so saffron and craft choco chip and clear embossed.  I then sponged the sky with a combo of brocade blue and not quite navy.  The sand was sponged in with sahara sand.  The plaid was stamped in not quite navy and sahara sand.  White, not quite navy and hazel nut tan papers used and it was finished off with my favorite lace!  If you get a chance in the hustle and bustle of your day, come on over to the DRS Designs blog and play along!

DRS Designs Red, Green and white Challenge

My card today is for DRS designs Thursday challenge.  Today it is to use green, red and white on our creations.  I chose the Bootprints in the snow for my main image and the snow background on my always artichoke layer.  I stamped the main image in burnt umber and then colored a bit of the trees in with always artichoke.  The smoke was colored in with light gray, the sky done with a sponge in not quite navy and the snow on trees and foreground was painted on with champagne shimmer paint.  I sponged the edges with cherry cobbler and it was sponged a bit thicker on the bottom.  Cherry cobbler seam binding for the ribbon and I used a portion of the Silent Night sheet music for my sentiment. A tiny bit of red smooch was painted onto the trees. The main image was put on dimensionals.  Papers:  white, always artichoke and cherry cobbler.

Have a great day!

DRS Designs Thursday Challenge #2 polka dots

Happy day!  DRS Designs has started a challenge for Thursdays and this week it is to use polka dots.  Go check it out here along with the other designers cards.  I used the polka dot background and then the main image was stamped more than once with the triple tree with snow in noir black.  Sponged in the sky with soft sky and then bermuda bay was sponge daubered on the trees and around the edges.  A scallop circle punch to cut the image out and layered with bermuda bay and black.  Lastly ribbon, a couple of glittered snowflakes and glitter added for the snow. 
Have a great evening!  I am hosting 44 girls from the high school swim team in a couple of hours.

Happy Holidays!

Happy December to everyone!  It is my pleasure to be posting for DRS Designs today where there are lots of wonderful images to help you create some beautiful things for the holidays~
My card today features our pinecone image 506K and the Happy Holidays greeting 515C.  I stamped the sentiment in brown, punched it out and smeared red ink around the edge...and layered with another punched oval in old olive.  All vanilla, brown and old olive layers embossed with the lattice folder.  Main image fussy cut to add interest.  Image stamped in brown, colored with close to cocoa, crumb cake, old olive and berries added with smooch.  Second layer was stamped with our pine bough 467K and done in the same fashion.  Some simple red ribbon and I call it good!
I hope everyone is able to find time to enjoy the little things during this holiday season.
Have a terrific weekend!
Pam
