Good Morning and Happy Friday!
It's been another busy week, but I did manage to make a couple of cards for Just Magnolia and Stamp Something this week. I was sad to miss out last week, so I made sure to take a break this week and get some crafting done. Looking forward to a relaxing weekend too and hoping to craft a bit more!
Our challenge at Stamp Something this week is "thankful somethings" in honor of the upcoming US Thanksgiving holiday next week. We are also running this challenge for 2 weeks, so you have plenty of time to enter. The prize this week is a $20 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp!
Whimsy Stamps products, starting with the new Holiday Folly papers created by Ann and Crissy. They are beautiful and perfect for holiday/winter creations. I stitched the edges on the sewing machine and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist and added some Stickles dots too. The image is N'ice Friends illustrated by Crissy from our winter collection last year. I've colored with Copics and then highlighted with some Twinklets (thanks Erin!). I embellished this card with beautiful snowflakes created with our new Whimsy Shapeology Die Winter's Jewel 1, created by Crissy. I love how intricate and delicate this snowflake is. I cut them from white card stock and then covered with Star Dust stickles (which you can buy at Simon Says). The ticket was cut with our new Shapeology Ticket Die and the blank ticket from the Holiday Ticket Set and "thank you" from Oval Snippets.
This card also fits challenges at:
Allsorts - sketch
Fab 'n' Funky - forgotten stamp or digi
Paper Pretties - thank you
Simon Says Stamp - sparkle
Stampin' Royalty - patterned paper
Caardvarks - holiday cards using die cuts
Creative Card Crew - give thanks
Next up is my card for the new JM challenge and this week we want to see lots of White with only one other color. You can color your image with other colors, but please limit your papers and embellishments to only white and one other color. And be sure to use a Magnolia image to qualify for the prize this week.
holiday wish list BG is from Whimsy Stamps. I've stitched all the paper edges and then used some nesties to frame my image. The image was colored with copics and highlighted with stickles. I've embellished with snowflakes, gems, and ribbon.
This card fits at:
ABC Challenge - holidays
Creative Cottage - for someone special at Christmas
Anything Goes - Let it Snow
Flourishes - Christmas
Critter Sketch - texture
Little Paper Shop - die cuts
Paper Playtime - use something you love (polka dot ribbon, snowflake embossing folder)
Thanks so much for stopping by this Friday. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
