12.26.2017 F4A409 Split coast Challenge

The F4A409 Challenge this week was to use fruit images, so I used these lovely grapes from Gina K. Designs, from a stamp set called Better with Age. Memento ink to stamp and copic markers to color the fruit and leaves.  I placed the image on a scalloped oval and added some dimensionals, to give  additional interest.

Sat. 12.23.2017 This is for 2 Challenges!

This is for the MOD Squad Challenge- a Winter Scene and also for the double D challenge for a Winter card. The snowflakes are little metal embellies, but I did fussy cut the house and Santa, after coloring with Copic markers.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

12.18.2017 F4A408 Challenge

This is for the F4A408  Split Coast Challenge, Sweet Treats, with a Masculine flavor.  I used an image from The Sweet Thing stamp set from Gina K. Designs and then I added the sentiment from this set also. The frosting was colored with Gamsol and colored pencils. A few gems anchored the sentiment panel to the CS base.

Sat., Dec.16, 2017 Merry and Bright Poinsettias

A beautiful Saturday to play with my GKD  kit and too many stamps and dies to layer and add to this card, make me one happy camper!  Thanks for visiting.  It is 42 degrees here in Wisconsin today and does not seem like Christmas is only 9 days away. So strange!

Wed. 12. 6. 2017 A Christmas Medallion

This is another really old stamp set that I was playing around with yesterday and decided I should make another Christmas card with it.  I think 2011 was a year I received a lot of stamps that needed a little love and use again. I added some pearls to spice it up a bit too.  I am sure it is long ago discontinued set!

Tues. Dec. 5, 2017 A Sympathy Card

I was just playing in my craft room today and decided to make a Sympathy Card with a stamp set from my stash from 2011.  Yes I still like these trees and  these trees are perfect for this type of card.  After I was through making it, I shocked myself as to how long I have had this set!  Boy, time really goes by quickly, doesn't it?

Sat. 12. 2. 2017 Winter Wishes and Snowman

I made this card yesterday while waiting for my friend to come over and we could go to lunch.  I had so much fun creating this one.  Apparently we will be getting snow here before we know it. It is December, right?

This is a Gina K. stamp set from 2014 that I colored with Copic markers, colored pencils and then added glitter and a gel pen to which I added even more glitter to make it look like it's snowing! I fussy cut the little guy and then also popped up with sentiment for added dimension.

12.01.2017 It's a MOD Squad December Wreath

Time is flying by so quickly, and now I have a Christmas Wreath card to show you today.  This is for the Mod Squad Challenge to have a Wreath Focal point.  I decided to make my card look like a front door that is decorated for the Holidays. Glitter berries shine on the wreath, as it hangs on the door!

11.30.2017 Sketch Challenge SC673

I used SC673 Sketch to design my card yesterday. 
The glittered berries needed to dry, so I waited until today to take a photo and post it here. 

The Merry and Bright kit from Gina K. Designs was used for the flower and the holly, as was the card stock.  DP was on my desk waiting to be used!

Mon. 11.27.2017 Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

I was playing with my stash yesterday and decided to make a Christmas card using Non-traditional colors.  I was thinking this might be a good card for someone who might be tired of red and green colored cards! The snowflake and sentiment are from the Gina K. Holly Jolly stamp set.  I added a few silver pearls to finish things off and get this ready for you to view.  Have a great day.

Sat. 11.18.2017 JUGS Challenge

I made this for the Just Us Girls challenge- to use Turquoise, Gold and Brown.  Got it done with my autumn card.  My leaves were all cleaned up yesterday, so I made this card for the wonderful person that got it done for me. The colors were perfect as our sky was a pretty turquoise yesterday as the sun was shining.  Happy that it got done before the rain today!

Wed. Nov.15, 2017 Cool Tag

Here is a tag I made after watching Cat's video yesterday.  I used a Spellbinder die cut , and added poinsettias from the Merry and Bright Stamp set from Gina K. Designs, which I colored with in and Copics.  I added some sparkle and dimensionals and the finished it off with some elastic cord. Black Nuvo drops finished the flower centers. I am thinking this would be great to add to a bottle of wine to take to a friend's house.

11-10-2017 EF Tag as a card

I made this tag card using an Embossing Folder that was inked as the tag. I added a few Spellbinder details to the sides of the tag after I used some twine as a bow detail for my tag.  I inked a CB folder to give detail to the tag.  A couple of pearls added some more texture at the card's bottom.
 What a fun project!

Wed. 11-8-17 Tag You're It Challenge STV17MON45

This is for Sherri's challenge STV17MON45 Tag You're It.  I made the background using Yupo Paper and then added a sentiment.  Before I added the string the tag was attached to a matching piece of card stock to make it a bit stronger.  I am thinking of hanging this tag on a bottle of Olive Oil to thank a hostess for her dinner invitation. 
Thank you for stopping by to peek!

Tues. 11-7-2017 Getting Holiday Ready??

Yesterday's schedule got a little mixed up, but I did manage to get this card done, but couldn't get it on my blog here until this morning. 
Copics on my die cut poinsettias and leaves, along with glitter centers on those flowers, and a 3d touch to the Holly centers, which I placed on a Spellbinder background.  I am really excited to be using the Merry and Bright kit from Gina K. Designs.

Let me know how I did- I love to read your comments!

This is an easel calendar I made for 2018.  It was a fun project to make and so different from the cards I usually make- something other than a card!!!!! I added die cuts in green card stock, and numbers that were make a long time ago. A little flower was put on the front to soften the look a little.
