Merry Christmas Tag

Hello,

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  I was able to find a little time to whip a tag for a few challenges.
I used Poinsettia from Power Poppy to create this tag.  This was my first try at coloring a white poinsettia.  It is an over sized tag and I haven't added the string to attach it yet as I don't have any ribbon/string that will work so I will have to add that later.  I will be entering this into Mod Squad Challenge to make a Christmas tag and Power Poppy's Peep of the Week Challenge.

Thank you for stopping by.

Joys of Christmas

Hello, I hope you are having a lovely weekend.  Today I have a card that I made for Art Impressions latest challenge Zoo or Animals, Really Reasonable Ribbon's challenge Winter Holiday with Ribbon Theme and for MoJo Mondays sketch 370.



I flipped the sketch.  The image is one of the newest Christmas images for Art Impressions called Warm Your Heart.  I colored this adorable penguin with copics. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Gifts Galore

Hello, Today I have a card I made for Unity Stamp Company's Be Inspired Challenge.  For this challenge you are to use the photo and or sketch to create card or scrapbook page.  I decided to use both the photo and the sketch on my card.
And here is my card.
Isn't this little snowman the cutest?  It is an Itty Bitty called Gifts Galore.  I used a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to add sparkle to the snowman and ribbons on the gifts.  Here is a close up shot.  Please ignore the lousy photo.  It is hard to get a close up by yourself of glitter and sparkly items.

Thank you for stopping by.

Merry and Bright

Hello,

I hope you had a nice weekend.  I was able to play in my craft room with a new stamp set I won from Power Poppy.  If you haven't purchased any of these stamps yet I highly recommend you do.  The images are so beautifully drawn by Marcella Hawley and the quality is outstanding.  On to my card.
I have wanted to make a fireplace card ever since I bought Tim Holtz's Bricked embossing folder.  Today I finally did.
I love this stocking and the pretty poinsettia on it.  It is from Power Poppy's set Poinsettia.  I started by embossing white card stock and cutting out the opening for the fire. I don't have any fire stamps so I google how to draw a fire and used that for my inspiration.  After drawing the fire on scrap paper I used it as a pattern to cut out the flames out of vellum.  The logs are cut out of wood grain paper with the old word window punch from Stampin Up.  The garland is made from Martha Stewart's branch punch.

I am entering this card into Power Poppy's Peep of the Week Challenge.  Wish me luck!

Thank you for stopping by.

I used Witch Wanda set for this card.  Isn't she great!  I made the broom with a trig from my backyard and some raffia and twine.  I have seen it on a card somewhere and knew I had to make one for Wanda.  Here is a side view.

Weekend Warrior

Hello,

Today I have a card I made for my DH for his birthday.   The front of the card is fairly simple.
On the inside I made it a pop up card.
It is a little hard to see in this photo, but that is a black workbench just like my hubby's complete with doors and a stainless steel top. I created the peg board by punch holes is a piece of kraft card stock and hung the tools with brads.  Here is a side shot.

I used Weekend Warrior from Art Impressions.  I am entering this into their current challenge #146 Fancy Folds.  My Hubby loved the card.

Thank you for stopping by.

Trimmed with Love

Ok after hardly posting any cards for the last month or so I am trying to making up for it tonight.  Here is my last card for the Power Poppy challenges.  This last challenge is an inspiration challenge, Let's Get Personal.  These are my favorite types of challenges.  You could use something from around your home or the photo below for your inspiration.  I went with the photo and made a Christmas card.  I was inspired by the ornaments on the tree.
Here is my card
Thank you for stopping by.

I Think You're So Amzaing

Post number 3!
This one is for Power Poppy's third challenge Hope, Think Pink!  For this challenge you need to do one of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on SplitCoast Stampers.  I picked Stripping down, which is to use some of those strips of paper we all have left over from our projects.
For my card I used Azalea again from Power Poppy.

You are Always on my Mind

Hello,

Power Poppy has some great challenges from World Card Making Day.  Well I didn;t get to stamp on Saturday, but I made up for it since.  This is the first of four post showing the cards I made for their challenges.

First up is challenge #1 Woot Woot For Tuts! This challenge is to create a card or project using one of the fabulous tutorials called Inspire Me Mondays.  I picked Mosaic Stamping.  I don't have a die like Dina used so I had to make mine old school.  I used my only Power Poppy set Azalea.
Thank you for stopping by.
