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?

Color Throwdown #355

Hi Stampers!

I'm using more new product today for the Color Throwdown challenge.  I think I buy a snowflake set every single year.  I just LOVE snowflakes!  (Too bad I hate real snow.)  Here's the color combo for this week's Color Throwdown.  If you want to play along, just click on the image below to go to their blog.

I went with Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, and Smokey Slate as my colors for this throw down.  I thought they were perfect for a snowflake card!  

It might be difficult to see in the picture, but for the turquoise snowflakes, I added some sparkle with Iridescent Ice Stampin' emboss powder.  This is really easy to do with photopolymer stamps.  First I stamped the snowflakes with the Tempting Turquoise ink.  After the ink has dried, I stamp again with Versamark and then heat emboss with the embossing powder.  It's really easy to line up the images because of the see through photopolymer stamps.

I also added some of the fun new bling from the catalog to certain snowflakes for some extra sparkle! These are the Winter Wonderland Embellishments.  Do you also see the two new punches I used on this card? 

Hope that you have enjoyed my card today.  Tell me what products from the new catalog you are most excited about in the comments!

Freshly Made Sketches #156

Hi Stampers!

Have you ever participated in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog?  It's one of my favorites.  There's loads of inspiration there!  This week's sketch is a fun one!

I really wanted to make a Halloween card with this sketch!  The Freaky Friends stamp set is so cute for Halloween cards!  I used my Old Olive Blendabilities to give the witch her greenish hue.  

Here's a close up of the focal point.  I used my new handheld stapler for attaching the sentiment.  I was so excited to see this new tool in the Holiday Catalog!  It's a fun way to attach pieces to cards and it's great for scrapbooking and Project Life!

Thanks for looking!  If you like my card, leave me some love in the comments! :-)

Christmas Bliss Merry Christmas - Merry Monday Challenge #128

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a Christmas card to share with you.  This one was a lot of fun to make! I also got to use up some scraps which always makes me a happy camper.  I really do not use Wild Wasabi as much as I should.  It's a great color for holiday projects! I am also entering this for the Merry Monday Challenge #128!

See the little scrap of Brushed Silver???

I decorated the interior panel of the card as well.  The Christmas Bliss stamp set has some great sentiment stamps that are perfect for the insides of cards.

Thanks for checking out my post!  I love comments!  :-)

Updated to add that I was chosen as a Favorite of the Week on Splitcoast Stampers!  YAY!
