Here is my card for Make Over Monday this week. It is pretty simple, but an interesting idea. All the paper I used came from Paper Temptress. I used the Light Blue Basis, Blue Basis and Vintage Silver Lustre.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The challenge at Makeover Monday this week is to do a snowflake card. This card will also work for the challenge at Party Time Tuesday which is to add bling I stamped my background with a technique from Technique Junkies called Depth of Field. I embossed the darke blue piece down the side and cut the snowflake from glitter paper. I added some curly glitzy ribbon on the side.
My project this week for Make it Monday is wine bottle topper. I saw a similar project on a blog last week and now I can't stop making them. This would be perfect when you take a bottle of wine to a friend's house over the holiday. The background is made from a technique from Technique Junkies called collage circles.
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.
