Tuesday Morning Sketches

One of the challenges I like to play along with is Tuesday Morning Sketches. The December Flavor of the Month Kit arrived in my mailbox yesterday from Scrapping for Less and here is the card I created.

There are four different collections in the Flavor of the Month. I pulled out the second collection and used the Stamp – Penguin with a Mug by Stamping Bella; papers called “Chill” by Scrapping for Less; and the Sequins by Buttons Galore. I used a sentiment from collection #1 Bear Hugs by Sunny Studio. The card base is Sno Cone from MFT which is also included in the Flavor of the Month.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Scrapping for Less

I subscribe to Flavor of the Month Card Kit by Scrapping for Less. The first kit I received was called For the Love of Pets and I created this card using “Puppy Pals” (Newton’s Nook) for the current challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

Along wih the kit each month comes four sketches to help you create cards. This card was based on sketch #2. All of the papers came with the kit as well as the adorable bone paper clip. The image was colored with copics.

I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids and this card will be going to them.

Rainbow Card Challenge #1

Scrolling through some of my favorite bloggers yesterday I was very excited when I came upon a brand new challenge – The Rainbow Card Challenge. The theme this month is Red Romance. Sorry the image is a little glaring (dreary day here in the NE).

I used versa mark ink and stamped the Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flower image and embossed with gold detail embossing powder onto red cardstock (MFT). I used a prisma color white pencil to color in some of the flowers. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

In addition to shipping cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids I donate handmade cards to Nursing Homes and two Veteran’s Homes in PA, (Philadelphia and Erie). This card will be going to one of the Nursing Homes.

The first challenge of the New Year is up on Sinkin’ Inkers. The theme is “new”. I chose to Congratulate a family who received a new puppy.

January-1-2019

For this card I used elements from different stamp sets. I made my own doghouse out of papers from my stash. The background was created using a cloud stencil.

Thanks for dropping by and make sure you check out Stinkin’ Inkers challenge this month and I hope you will play along.

Happy New Year and Be Blessed.

Send A Smile 4 Kids

The current challenge over at SAS4KIDS is Winter Fun 4 Kids or Anything Goes 4 Kids. I made this card a few weeks ago.

skaters

This is a center step fold card (the first one for me). All of the elements are from Hero Arts. I created the background using Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped all of the elements, colored them with Copics added a little Wink of Stella to the tree and the skates, and then die cut them out. Had to add the bling, the stars (just because).

This card is going off to one of the three hospitals I ship to tomorrow, for Send A Smile 4 Kids.

I would also like to participate in the Sparkles Christmas Challenge which is fancy folds.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cookies for Santa

One of the things I loved most about Christmas Eve when my children were young, was getting out the special cookie plate and hot chocolate mug for Santa. The kids would be so excited. The challenge over at Double Trouble is Sweet Treat for the Holidays and More. Here is my card:

cookies-for-santa-double-tr

The stamp set is from Scrapping for Less. I added the bling for the Twisted Sister tease to add sprinkles (any kind of sparkly).

I will also be joining in the challenge over at Use Your Stuff which is also part of the Double Trouble Challenge and I used their photo as inspiration for my card.

The challenge over at Cards In Envy is Santa Baby, so I will be joining them in their challenge as well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Plaid Christmas

I love all things plaid at Christmas – I don’t have any in my Christmas decor but I love seeing it! This week’s inspiration over at Tuesday Throwdown is a photo inspiration challenge. Here is my card.

tuesthrowdown-photo-insp

My eyes were immediately drawn to the large plaid throw pillows (my background paper) and the Merry Christmas on the bed pillow in the front (my sentiment). To incorporate a little green (from the wreath on the wall), I used an ornament stamp (stamped in green and silver). I added some bling. Except for the stamp, all of the elements on this card are from a great prize I won over at Double Trouble (very fun challenge).

I would like to participate in Sweet Stampin’ Christmas, Crafting By Design (Christmas), The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge.
