The challenge at Stamp Royalty was to use Stampin' Up Designer Paper. All this paper is from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The pattern for the cute quilt came from Ink Paper Stamps. I have used this pattern several times for quilting friends. It is super easy to do and I love the outcome.
Here is a Thanksgiving card that I made using the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. I thought this little turkey was so cute. I colored the turkey with colored pencils dipped in mineral spirits. I recently bought a super small stapler from Tim Holtz and I used that to make the loops in the ribbon.
This is a christmas card I made for a Yahoo swap. I used the technique "Puzzle Layers" from the last Technique Junkies newsletter. Mine is a little abbreviated since I did not use pop dots on my pieces. I was doing this while away from home and sort of forgot that one little detail. The sketch for the card is from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge
The challenge at Critter Challenge Blog. was Christmas. I made this card for one of my Yahoo group swaps. I just love the detail in this snowman. The stamp is made by Serendipity Stamps. We were to do Faux Dry Embossing and that was done by cutting shapes in the same color as the background and adding them to the card.
Here is my card for the Midnight Madness Challenge . The owl stamp is from Stampabilities. I kept looking at this owl and thinking I should color it. I even searched the internet for a good picture. I was just not brave enough to tackle it. I decided to distress around the edge and add the sentiment. It is not very often I come up with a masculine card I like.
