 Another Christmas card for the stash!

supplies: sentiment: flower; arches; mica spray
I first took a sheet of pink cs and sprayed with TH mica spray.  Then spattered with gold metallic watercolor.  Did the same for the green.  Die cut petals and leaves and assembled the flower.  Used arch dies to make the card base.  Put it all together with white berries and a little sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by.

The other night Gina K. did a video on making a little village scene Christmas card.  I didn't have any of the dies she used, but was still able to make a similar card with other dies.

I shopped my stash and used a little village die, some trees, snow banks, a sentiment and a frame - all from different companies.  After the village was glued to the vellum, I colored in all the windows (on the back of the vellum) with yellow copic marker.  It took a little fiddling around but I think it came together pretty well.  

Thanks for dropping by.

Happy Thanksgiving and what a great day to be designing a thank you card for TicTacToe Challenge #236 - board created by Elizabeth.  I went down the center with die cut, free and thankful.

supplies: embossing folder; cardstock 

I made a mini slimline card (3.25"x6.25").  Embossed the center panel with some fall leaves and then added various die cut leaves.  I had fun with making some pretty papers with TH mica sprays and used that for my leaves.  Before assembling my card, I spattered metallic gold and finally added some Nuvo copper drops.

I went thru my scrapbox yesterday and made this card from a piece I had stamped years ago - I don't think I even have the stamps any longer.  Too bad as I rather like the end result!

It was A2 size so cut it down and added a gold border.  Added the gold embossed sentiment, some gold sparkle bits, put it on a Desert Storm card base and done!!

We're counting down to Christmas with Joanne's challenge #234 this week.  I went down the right side with cream, sentiment and navy - what a fun color combo for Christmas!!

supplies: poinsettia; embossing folder; sentiment; patterned paper

My embossed background really is cream although it looks quite white in the photo - you'll just have to believe me!  After embossing the panel, I added it to the navy base.  Then added the blue poinsettia which I die cut from some patterned papers.  Lastly, the little sentiment was adhered and the whole card spattered with gold ink.

Hope you'll join us this week at TicTacToe #234 - you'll have a chance to become a future guest designer.
