Merry Christmas in Blue - CCC

Here I am again this Sunday. This time I have a card for the SCS - Creative Card Chicks Monthly Challenge. Each month we have a hostess who sends out a kit to the rest of the members and then we each make at least one card from the kit and post it on the thread, in our gallery, or on our blog. It's always fun to see what each person does with their kit. This month, our hostess was Joyce (ashjoy). She sent us a fun Christmas kit. One can always use Christmas cards.

The stocking and sentiment are from the Power Poppy Poinsettia set. The designer paper is from DCWV. I used Stampin Up Bordering Blue for the card base and a snowflake die from the Haishell Snowflake Die set.

Copic Markers - B32, B34, B37; E40; R24, R27, R37; Y15

Merrriest Christmas Wishes - IAS #72

Hello, my friends and Happy Sunday. It truly is a sunny day today although still a bit chilly out. Did I ever mention that I am NOT a fan of cold weather? LOL! I'm trying my best to deal with it.

Today I have a card for the International Art & Soul challenge. The theme is Christmas With No Image. That was hard for me until I got these beautiful laser-cut card bases in the mail the other day. I saw someone on a YouTube showing how to add glue to the back of them to make a card. Of course, I had to get some.
The white card base is from Stampin Up as well as the Gold Glitter cardstock. The sentiment is also from Stampin Up - Watercolor Christmas. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and then used Gold Glory embossing powder, also from Stampin Up. Then cut it out with a scallop circle die. The ribbon from my stash.

There are some other great creations from the Design Team on the Challenge. Hop on over and check them out and then get creating. You could be a winner or one of the Top 3 for this challenge. It's all fun.

Fairy on Mushroom - IAS #71

Good morning and Happy Sunday from a chilly H Town. Yes, I know some of you are freezing and have snow, but I could see my breath when I went out to feed the outside kitties, birds, and squirrels this morning. This is not what I signed up for when I came south from PA. Oh well, it is supposed to warm up some today before another freezing Arctic Blast hits us later this week.

Today I have a card that I made for the International Art & Soul challenge this fortnight. The theme was UK Myths and Legends. I love fairies so that's what I used for my card.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Fairy with Mushroom by Connie Fong
  • Sentiment - Lili of the Valley - Sweet & Simple
  • Card stock - Stampin Up Regal Rose and Xpress It Blending Card

I hope that you'll pop on over to International Art & Soul to see the other fabulous creations from the design team. Come join in the fun and play along. You could be picked as the winner or one of the Top 3 with a badge to display on your own blog. See you soon.

Magical Day

Wow! Happy Sunday. I can't believe it's been a over a month since I've posted. It's been a really busy time. School has been crazy and I've had to spend a lot of time reading and writing. Also, doing some work for a genealogy client. So much to do and so little time.

In October, I was the hostess for our monthly swap - Creative Card Chicks on Splitcoast Stampers. It was my turn to send out a card kit to the rest of the group. This is just one of the images that I sent and I used items from the kit for my card.

Materials Used:
  • Image - All Dressed Up - Magical Day
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up
  • Designer Paper - Bo Bunny Spiders; Stampin Up
  • Accessories: Stampin Up web doily; Jolee's spider; Stampiin Up Pumpkin Pie ribbon
  • Copic markers - W1, W3, W7, W8; Y000, Y15, Y18, Y19; YR02, YR16, YR18
That's it for today. I do have some other cards to share, just need to find the time. Hope you all have a fabulous week.
