Merry Monday Challenge #56

Hey Everyone

It’s Monday, so that means it’s Merry Monday time again! Lesley has created this interesting sketch for us this week.  I love how all the Merry Makers have created different cards using this sketch.

I’ve used some retired Stampin’ Up! designer series paper – Holly Jolly DSP – for my card. I still have quite a bit lying around and it feels really good to use it up. The Evergreen trees are stamped in Old Olive and my sentiment is from a retired Stampin’ Up set called Many Merry Messages.  I must be going through a green phase because I’ve created yet again, another mostly green card.

We’d love for you to join us this week – head over to Lesley’s blog and see what the Merry Makers have created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #230

Hey Everyone

It’s Thursday so that means a new challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.  This weeks challenge is to create a project using Champagne Glimmer Paper and Very Vanilla.  This was my first time using Champagne Glimmer Paper (in fact I purchased it just for this challenge!).

I’ve gold heat embossed the trees from Evergreen as well as my sentiment from Merry & Type – I really like to mix my stamp sets, don’t I? Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #60

Hey Everyone

Over at Freshly Made Sketches, Tui has come up with this fabulous sketch.  I’m so into circles as the focal point on my cards right now, so I knew this sketch was for me.

This is my first time using Evergreen – I soooooo wanted it and haven’t even inked it up until now.  I figured I’d better use it before it retired! Here’s what I came up with:

I initially had one tree on my card, but I felt it was a little plain so I stamped a second one – now I don’t know if I’ve gone overboard :).

Thanks for stopping by.

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP, Festival of Prints DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
