Yesterday I had some free time to play along some of my favorite challenges. I created this card for the current Way to Use it challenge on Splitcoaststampers (favorites), the current CASE Study and Simon Says Stamp challenge (snowflakes).

The current CASE study showcases a gorgeous card from Windy Robinson. Her card had some great dry embossing with Nestabilities dies. Her card had flowers in the center, but I thought snowflakes would be more appropriate for December. Plus I LOVE snowflakes. So I cut snowflakes out of Neenah Solar White cardstock, Frosted Teal and Patina Bazzill cardstock with dies from the 2012 Snowflake Pendant Shapeabilities® die set.

A 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was folded in half and the bottom corners were rounded.  Two of the Wonky Rectangles Nestabilities® were embossed in the center of the card. A sentiment from Merry Everything was stamped in the center of the embossed rectangles with Midnight Black VersaMagic Ink.

Red silk ribbon was tied around the lower part of the card base. Thin silver wire was wrapped around a stylus and added to the small white snowflakes. The bigger blue snowflake and a while one were adhered to the left hand side of the sentiment. A second white snowflake was adhered over the ribbon bow.  Rhinestones from Want2Scrap finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Friday!

I created this card a few weeks ago for a CASE study challenge.  For this one I paired 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ wide strips of different colored blue Bazzill cardstock were adhered to a slightly bigger white base. Clouds were cut out with Flat Bottom Cloud Die-namic dies.

The layer was adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded. A sentiment from Simon Says Stamps On Edge stamp set was stamped underneath the colored cardstock layers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

White cardstock was cut with the Simon Says Stamp die Always and adhered right on the edge of the colored cardstock edge.  Black Doodlebug Twine was tied right under that edge and topped with a button. Faux Stitching was added to the colored cardstock with a white gel pen. Three rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.

I created this card for a Way to Use it Challenge (no fall colors) and a CASE study challenge.  I just LOVED the card we had to case and it made me create not just one but several cards. For this one I paired 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ wide strips of different colored blue Bazzill cardstock were adhered to a slightly bigger white base. I used the new Simon Says Stamp Curvy Snowflake die to cut a negative image in the center.  The edges were stitched and the snowflake die cut was adhered over the negative cut.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 3/4″ x 10″ piece of Limeade Bazzill cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded.

A piece of Solar White cardstock was cut and with Holiday Folded Banner die. The sentiment and frame is from the same named Simon Says Stamps exclusive stamp set and was stamped on the banner with Jet Black Archival ink. The banner was adhered to the lower right edge of the snowflake panel. Rhinestones on the snowflake and next to the banner finish off the card.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!

P.S.: Today’s Holiday Blitz tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was created by Theresa Momber. She shows you how to turn a circle die cut into a darling basket.

 

I created this card for last week’s Inspiration challenge.  For my sample I chose this darling stuffed giraffe.  The color scheme for this card came from last week’s  Ribbon Reel Challenge.  The sketch is from the current CASE study challenge.

I started by cutting a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with the giraffe die from MFT’s Spectacular Circus stamp and die set. The matching giraffe stamp was stamped over it in Wheat VersaMagic ink. A piece of Pink Paislee Portfolio patterned paper was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded before the circle was stitched to a slightly bigger white cardstock circle.

A 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Kraft cardstock was embossed with the Simplicity M-Bossabilities folder. The bottom corners were rounded and a the edges were faux stitched with a Signo white gel pen. The layer was adhered to the card base, a 3 3/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock folded in half before the partial circle was adhered to the left hand side. The giraffe was adhered to the circle with foam adhesive squares.

One of the sentiment from Circus Spectacular was stamped in Gray Flannel Memento ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut with one of MFT’s Sentiment Strips die-namics die. One of the sides was cut straight and the sentiment was adhered underneath the circle with Scor-Tape on the edges and two foam adhesive squares on top of each other in the center.

Stars were cut out Solar White cardstock as well as the same paper that was used for the circle with SimonSaysStamp exclusive Holiday Shapes die. The stars were adhered to the card and topped with rhinestones. A rhinestone on each end of the sentiment strip finishes off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
