Here We Go Again!


Here we go again for some challenges! I've got two card projects that I was finally able to complete on Wednesday evening. Days have been FULL and spare time has be limited -

This first card "Let It Snow" was designed with the Stamp411 sketch challenge #225 layout!
Here is the sketch layout to the right. I turned it to the side -

Using a the new FREE black striped paper that I got here from GinaK Designs (it's a FREEBIE; "Black Wardrobe" digital paper - print all you want from your printer!) along with Stampin' Up card stock colors - Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Basic Black and Whisper White. Using a "K&C Company - Deck the Halls" sticker snowman that I grabbed last year for the focal point and embellished with turquoise snow flakes.

This will also be entered in the challenge on StampTV for Lee's Mix It Up Monday challenge - "Let It Snow" And I did use the "Let It Snow" stamp from GinaK Design! For this challenge - the only requirement is to include a snowflake in your design - how easy is that?

Next is a Fall Foliage card entered on StampTV's
Free For All Friday Challenge - Cat picked a "Collage' Challenge" - make a card that combines a WHOLE BUNCH of things to create a collage'!

This card has a neutral and brown color theme. It has GinaK Design stamps from the Autumn Splendor set and the StampTV "Falling for You" kit - also fuzzy yarn, hand-torn brown paper, scallop punch and cut-out, printed brown transparent vellum, designer beige paper, swing brad and gold glitter "smooch" spray by SU on the leaves and pumpkin - also copic markers were used for coloring!

This Fall card is also entered in the Our Creative Corner with the Totally Transparent challenge here. I used some brown printed vellum that is transparent for the scallop punch cut-out behind the pumpkin.

Also the "Creatalicious Challenges - challenge #27- the requirements at this challenge is to use a DISTRESSED edge on your card project. In this card, I distress the edges by hand tearing the handmade chocolate colored paper that is the background for the stamped image.

The third challenge is at Fab' 'N Funky Challenge - challenge #95 - Distress or torn. This is a new website just found. Check out the entires - cute, cute, CUTE!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a great week! Remember to hug the ones you love the most - until next time...
