Freshly Made Sketches 266

Last night I felt like stamping and I wasn't having any luck coming up with an idea on my own.  Thankfully I always have some awesome challenge blogs saved to my favorites for instant inspiration!  Today I'm showing off the card I made using this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.


I was itching to make a card with the Festive Season stamp set and the Festive Stitching Thinlits Dies.  I'm really excited with how this card came out. I think that the sewing really adds a nice effect to the card.  I added on some extra shimmer and shine with Gold Wink of Stella and Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Snowflake Notecards

Do you even find a stamping supply laying on your desk and it suddenly inspires you to create a card?  That's what happened to me with the projects in this post.  

I have been trying to reorganize my craft room.  I have lots of retired stamping supplies laying around.  Instead of just saying, "Oh this is old.  Let me just shove this away in a corner", I have decided to pair the old with the new.  

The old supply I am using is the beautiful Something Borrowed embellishments.  These lovely silver tone and rhinestone embellishments have been sitting on my desk forever.  They were definitely a case of a product being too pretty to use.  I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's true!  I could not bring myself to use them because I thought that they were just too pretty.  Well now, I need to get them used up. 

These embellishments were originally geared towards wedding projects, but I think that they are fabulous when paired with snowflakes!  


Flurry of Wishes is my favorite snowflake stamp set!  (And with a coordinating punch, it is super easy to make great projects.)  To me, snowflakes sparkle just like these embellishments.


For some more stash busting, I made a matching envelope from some retired paper.  That's a great way to use up some DSP if you have a bit piled up and you want to make room for the latest and greatest paper.  Just use it to create beautiful envelopes.  


I couldn't resist making another card with a different color scheme. Can you tell that I love non-traditional colors for Christmas cards???  Love it!


Yeah, I made another matching envie with my envelope punch board. 


Check out these beauties together!


You could make several of these in different colors and bundle them up as a set!  What a nice gift to give someone to prepare for the holidays.

CAS(E) This Sketch #136

Hello stampers!

This is a card that I like to think of as a little something old and a little something new.  The old part is the  bit of Midnight Muse card stock that I added to the top of the card.  I loved that color and the envelope that holds all of what I have left is always next to my desk just in case I need this exact shade of blue!  The something new are these fabulous new dies from Stampin' Up!'s 2015 Holiday Catalog!


I have created this card for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge.   You can click on the picture below to go to the challenge blog and check it out.


Here is a close up of the top portion of the card. To create the snow on the Garden Green card stock, I first sponged on some Whisper White craft ink.  Then I used my glue pen and some Dazzling Diamonds to add the glittery edge.  I made a bit of a boo boo when trimming the ends of my paper - lesson learned on that one!

Just Us Girls Challenge #306

Hi Stampers! 

Today I have a card to share with you that I entered into the Just Us Girls Challenge for this week.  It was a color challenge and I couldn't resist trying out some new stamps and dies.  The new Delicate Ornament Thinlits dies are so cool.  I pre-ordered the new Precision Plate for the Big Shot and it makes it super easy to cut out these intricate designs. No more wax paper for this girl!

The color challenge was to use black, red, and gray so I went with Basic Black, Real Red, and Smoky Slate as my color combo.


If you click on this image it will take you to the Just Us Girls Challenge blog where you can check out all of the fun inspiration for this color combo!
Here is a close up of the ornament.  Can you see all of the fun new products used?
