They are all Christmas cards since I still have this in my brain. It went from plus 7 to minus 7 in the span of a few hours! Nothing like Southern Ontario to screw with your body than to have the temps and rain/snow/wind go all wonky tonk.
Enough about that! Here are 3 cards I made this weekend. I also got all my Christmas decor down and I walked a little today. My ass is wondering what is going on.
Simon Says-Something New
Glitter N' Sparkle- Tic, Tac, Toe-I chose no Pattern papers, Gems and/or pearls, Distress
Craft Your Passion-Always Anything Goes
I love this stamp and bought it last year but this is the first time I used it! I love this Polar Bear, let's call him Edgar, as he peeks into the camera lens. I love blue (no kidding) and used white pearl paper, which I distressed (ripped). I used my cuddlebug to emboss the snowflakes on the lighter blue paper. I stamped and embossed Edgar and the winter saying and added some gems.
ABC Christmas Challenge-Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut Challenge(CHNC)-Use red
I started this one before Christmas and just finished it now. I feel like those sloths who take 50 hrs to climb 5 inches up a tree. I love the green card stock because it shimmers - I must have been a magpie in a previous life. This is simpler than you think and it is 3D. I mounted everything..um....let's move on (I bet Robyn could say a thing or 3 here:)) I added the gold stickers in the corners and border and voila!
52 Christmas Cards-a Sketch challenge
Color Throwdown-Aqua blue, grey and Orange
Whimsy Stamps Challenge-Winter
I enjoyed making this one because it put a smile on my face. It feels like fun-Cosmo the Snowman seems to be waiting for the snow to come and happy about it. I stamped Cosmo in basic black and embossed in clear powder. I coloured his scarf and hat in orange and added glitter since he is a snowman. I used this dye ink and sponge to colour over the card going lighter towards the bottom. I stamped some filigree(which you can't see) at the top and embossed as well-it gives a grayish look I think. I coloured the Merry Christmas sticker in orange, added the stars around Cosmo and used a white pen for snow. It is mounted on a grayish/silver cardstock. 3 cards to begin the week!
Have a great week everyone!
