Midnight Madness Challenge #131

I need a card for a friend that lost her husband recently.  The sketch for this card came from the Midnight Madness Challenge.  Didn't know what colors to use, but found this cardstock in my stash.

Gift card holder

This is the gift card holder for the friend that is retiring at work.  I just got this doily stamp from Stampin' Up.  I love the look.  I think I may be using this on some Christmas cards. 

Makeover Monday #4 and Critter sketch Challenge #91

Here is my card for the challenge at Makeover Monday this week.  A dear friend at work is retiring tomorrow.  She loves tea so I made my background with different tea related items.  On looking at challenges I am also going to post on the Critter Sketch Challennge.  The challenge there was monochromatic.  Beings green is my favorite color that is what I picked for my friend's card.

Midnight Madness Challenge #130

The sketch for this card came from Midnight Madness Sketch challenge.  I need a card for a girl at work that is going to a new job.  I know the black and pink may be a little odd, but we got her a good luch cake with Hello Kitty on it and I figured this card would go with those colors.

Another Wine Bottle Topper

With the holidays coming up I just can't stop making wine bottle toppers. All the paper is from Paper Temptress.  The background is made using a technique from Technique Junkies called Collaged Circles. What better way to use a lot of wonderful cardstock. The cardstock used is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory for the base. The base piece is 3 1/2 x 6 1/2. I scored it at 1 1/2 and punched a hole with a 1 1/4 inch punch. The circles were made of Green Basis, Cordovan Leather, White Crepe, and Mountain Rose Glimmer. I gave some of the circles some texture. The stamp is from Verses Rubber Stamps. I really think the saying is cute. The embossing powder is from PK Glitz.

Midnight Madness Challenge #129

This is my card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week. The ruffle down the side is a technique from Technique Junkies called Double Ruffle.  The stamp is from Paper Inspirations and the work stamp is from Penny Black.  I stamped the deer and colored the wreath with copic markers.  I then stamped the wreath again to bring back the detail.  Have to love stamp positioners.

Midnight Sketch Challenge #128

I was working at the local stamp and gift store this past week end and this is one of the samples I made.  The sketch came from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.  The image was colored with prisma colored pencils.  I did get in a bit of a hurry and stamped the image on Cryogen instead of Colored Pencil paper.  I think the colored pencils blend a little better on the colored pencil paper.   The candy cane is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps and the stocking is from Whipper Snapper Designs.
