Merry Monday #128


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Katie challenges us to use Stripes, polka dots or both on your Christmas card.


I chose to use both stripes and polka dots.  I love this ornament & Sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.  It is from their latest release for Stamptember.   Who doesn't love a little pink and silver for a Christmas card?!

Have you started on your holiday cards yet?  Christmas will be here before you know it.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Let's Celebrate!


Happy Saturday everyone!  Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.  The weather is gorgeous here today.  My card for today is for a couple challenges.  First, the September Color challenge at Reverse Confetti.


Second, the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.


Instead of the tag in the sketch I used the popsicles from Let's Chill.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Banners.

**I just noticed that my card is very similar to Amy's here.  I was thinking the whole time I was making this that I had already made a card similar to this one but, it wasn't me, it was Amy.  :)

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps: Let's Chill 7 Beautiful Banners (Reverse Confetti)
Ink:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate (SU)
Paper:  Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Neutrals DSP
Accessories:  4mm & 6mm Sparkly clear sequins (PPP)

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


 Hi friends!  I am participating in Papertrey Ink's Blog hop.


I used the following inspiration cards....



I didn't have Autumn Rose cardstock so I used Rose Red by SU.  Thought it matched pretty close.  When I saw this sketch I knew immediately that I wanted to use the Life Is Beautiful dies.  Love these butterflies.  The inlaid die cutting technique is one of my favorites.

Here is my second card using the leftovers.

I am also adding the top card over at Simon Says: Anything Goes.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy the hop!

Merry Monday #127


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Kathy chose for us to play Christmas Bingo.
Choose three boxes...across, up/down, diagonally!
So much fun!
 
I chose the three boxes on the diagonal, Emboss, Ribbon/twine & red.  I wasn't sure if I could capture the embossed ornaments in my photo but I succeeded.  yay!  I used an embossing folder (NBUS) by Darice.  I didn't use the whole thing, just a portion of the piece to have it fit perfectly behind this Holiday Frame (NBUS) by SSS.  I wasn't able to capture the Wink of Stella glimmer that I added to the ornaments but it is there.

Christmas will be here before you know it.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Since I used the Holiday Frame & Embossing folder, both of which have never been used, I am entering this over at Darnell's NBUS Challenge #2.



Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Oh Happy Day & Winner!


Hi everyone!  I had fun with a little masking on this card using the Tomato Vine Kaleidacolor ink pad.  LOVE these ink pads!  These colors are perfect for leaves which are slowly starting to change up here in Northern, NH.  I used the leaves from the set Thankful Leaves by My Favorite Things.  The sentiment is from Oh Happy Day by Avery Elle.

I am linking this up to The Card Concept color challenge in the Clean and Simple category.

Before you go, I have the winner of one month StampNation membership from the Housewarming Party celebrating Catherine Pooler's new blog.
