Less is More - Primary Color

We have another challenge starting over at Less is More.  This week our theme is Primary Colors! Perfect for this time of the year.  Check out what the design team has come up with.  If you play along, you'll have a chance to win gift certificates for Uniko and Purple Princess Diaries!

Here's my take on the challenge...

Super fun card to make.  I love this little stamp set!

I started my doing a partial die cut of the snow peeps.  I then stamped the images and colored them with copic markers. I then used embossing paste to add the snowflakes in the background.

I popped the snow peeps up on foam tape, added the sentiment and done!


Here's a close up of the image.  you can see the snow flakes a bit in the background.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

CAS on Sunday - Christmas

Another challenge starting over at CAS on Sunday!  Our theme for this challenge is Christmas.  I'm still trying to finish all of my Christmas cards, I think I'm a bit behind, but hopefully this challenge focuses me a bit :)

Here's my take on the challenge, looking forward to seeing what you come up with...




I started by stamping my images and coloring them with copic markers.

I then wanted to add a bit of color so I used my speech bubble die on red cardstock.  I stamp and heat embossed my sentiment.  I popped the speech bubble on foam tape and done!




Here's a close up of the card.  You can see the dimension on the speech bubble.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Congratulations

Enjoying the long Thanksgiving Day weekend.  Even with things being a bit hectic at the moment, one can always find somethings to be thankful for!



We have another challenge starting over at Addicted to CAS.  This is a special challenge as it is our 4th year celebration!  There are lots of amazing chances to win some great prices, so hope you swing by to join us!  

Here's my card for the challenge, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

This is a super easy card to make, using my favorite small size 4 x 4.

I simply stamped my image on card stock, colored it with copic markers and added a bit of wink of stella!.  I then cut my image and matted it on some teal card stock.  I then popped it up on foam tape for some dimension and done!

The nice thing is you can use this same idea for a Christmas card...which I did as well :)



Here's a close up of the card, you can see a bit of the dimension.  

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Emboss Resist

It is time for another challenge over at Less is More.  For my U.S. friends, take some time from this long weekend and come and join in.  Our theme for this week is Emboss Resist.

This is a bit of a tricky challenge for me, as I'm still not completely happy with my ink sponging. Here's what I came up with, this is actually my second card, as I was not happy with the first one I created, so I went back to my go to simple card layout.

I started my heat embossing my snowflakes at the bottom of this card. I then added the distress ink.
I'm not sure I'm completely happy with this color, but was the best of what I have in my supplies. I heat embossed the sentiment, added a bit of silver foil paper and done! This is an easy card to mass produce...even with the ink sponging!


Here's a close up of the card.  Love these large Christmas sentiments from My Favorite Things!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

CAS on Sunday - Pet

Time for another challenge over at CAS on Sunday.  Our theme for this challenge is Pet!  How fun is that?  I had a few options since I have both dogs and bunnies as a possibility here.  I decided to go for the dog.  Since it is my friend Julie's Birthday, and she loves dogs, this theme is just perfect timing.




I started by stamping the main image on a white panel. I simply colored the pup with Copic markers.

I then used my die to add this speech bubble and heat embossed the sentiment.

All in all a clean and simple card!


Here's a close up of the pup...

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
