Christmas Cheer

Yup, it's Halloween and what am I posting?  Christmas cards!  That's because it's time for another 'Tis The Season sketch challenge and the optional trimming that goes along with the sketch is stripes.  I love this sketch because it's so clean and simple.  I've made four cards again with a similar design on each one.








And the final pic of all of them together.



Don't forget to check out all the other lovely designs using this sketch HERE and to play along if you get a chance! :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Fall Field Flowers

It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another card for the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch challenge.  Besides the sketch, this week's twist is to use orange on your sample.  Since I haven't used Field Flowers in a while I thought I'd stamp the flowers in Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango.  Don't forget to visit HERE to see what the other designers made and to make a card yourself.  This one is pretty quick and simple! :)






Yeah, I got carried away with pictures this time since I actually liked a bunch that I took.  I don't usually get so many that turn out.




Thanks for looking and have a great day!

FM - Love & Laughter

It's always nice to have a few shower cards around so when I need them I have them.  Yeah, I usually don't! lol  That's why I'm using the Friday Mashup challenge to get at least one card ahead. :)  This week's challenge is to create a project with the colors Coastal Cabana, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate & Crushed Curry, create a project with a cake, or mash them together and create a project with a cake and the four colors.  I have to say I always have a hard time putting these colors together so I added the extra bling of dazzling diamonds to make it sparkle a little. :)

Stippled Blossoms

Today's card is a clean and simple one using Freshly Made Sketches #109.  For some reason I wanted to make it in red and green.  Maybe because I've been working on Christmas cards and wanted to use the traditional colors since I haven't used them on any of my cards yet..who knows. lol



Can't forget the inside of the card. :)

Get Well Wishes

Today's get well card is made using the Paper Craft Crew card sketch #64.  I was trying to use the colors from another challenge, and after I got the card done I realized I totally left one of the colors out.  Not sure how I did that since I had all the colors out, but I'm not going back and adding it in that's for sure! lol

Baby Fox & Friends

Today's card is for a baby shower at our church.  I don't have any baby stamps sets except Fox & Friends, so that's why I keep it around even though it's retired.  I've made quite a few cute baby cards with it. :)  I used this month's color and sketch challenge from Stampin' Celebration to help me out with this card even though I did fudge on some of the colors just a bit! :)




Just a couple more pics of the card. :)

Let's Walk in the Wild

My post is definitely later than I planned since last night I decided to do a little updating on my computer.  Yeah, what I thought might take ten minutes ended up taking over two hours.  I was too tired to even think about what to write at that point! lol  So today I have a group of cards that were inspired by a couple of different challenges.  First I was checking out the Paper Players challenge #168 and it's all about masculine cards...CAS cards at that.   Then I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge #171 and thought it would be perfect for a masculine card because it was CAS!  I grabbed my Walk in the Wild set and got busy.  


After making a card to match the challenge I decided to make three more...all a little different, but using the same theme.  



These were quick and easy to make except I left a finger smudge on one and ended up doing a little sponging on the last two cards to cover it up.  Glad most mistakes are fixable!! :)






And the whole set together...

Spooky Time

Today's card is my design for Try Stampin' on Tuesday
...Spooky Time.  I sure am glad I won Witches' Brew DSP a while back because I've used it quite a few times to make cards for sketch challenges and designs for Halloween this year.  I have to say I don't have ANY Halloween stamps other than the "Happy Halloween" I stamped inside this card because it comes with the Seasonal Sayings stamp set.  Check out what the other designers made using this sketch.  Why not play along with us too.  Remember the theme is optional, so if you like the sketch and don't do Halloween anything else is just fine!

Freshly Made French Foliage

Just a quick post for today since I haven't posted anything for the past couple of days.  I wanted to enter a card into Freshly Made Sketches, and since fall colors are in full swing I wanted to make a card with all the wonderful colors I saw while driving to and from church.



I couldn't resist adding color to the inside of the card. :)

CAS - Lovely as a Tree

Today's card is a pretty clean and simple one inspired by the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge.  Since I had pulled this set out to show to someone at my stamp a stack I thought I would use it since it's been a while.  Plus I needed a birthday card for my nephew. :)

Shimmery Snowflake Soiree

Today's card is a color challenge from 'Tis The Season...Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz with the optional trim of adding glitter. I wasn't sure how the colors would look together, but I think I actually got them to work out. :)  So did the other ladies so make sure you check out all the other designers' cards and play along with us HERE too!  When I made my first card I was only going to make the snowflakes glittery, but that took too long because I'd have to clean the stamp off every time I stamped it.  That's when I decided to make the whole top piece sparkle instead of just the snowflakes.  The vote at my house was for the 2nd card that was all glittery. ;)

The first card...




The second card...


...and the group of four.  I'm still determined to  make four cards each time so I'm not spending so much time next fall working on all of them.  :)

TSoT - By the Tide

Today's card is my design for this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  I didn't really flip the card, just decided to make it horizontal instead of vertical since it suited the set I was using a little better.  It's also the second masculine card for this month's stamp a stack.  After I figured out all of my cards I realized they are all white with blue or blue and green on them except this one. lol   Yup, it's the odd one out. :) 



Just a few quick stamps on the inside of the card too.  Don't forget to check out what the other designers made HERE, and you can play along too if you'd like. :)
