Win it Wednesday

I'm back after a bit of a break from creating cards. It's great seeing some exciting changes happening over at Papertrey Ink. This is new and a first try for me at Laurie's  Win It Wednesday As my favorite stamp set and dies I used PTI Rosie Posie. It is a retired set but a great set with lots of versatility. Here's my card.

Dry Embossing CFC #215

Last hurrah for Casual Fridays challenges and the end of creating Christmas cards for this season. I have loaded my card up on lots of dry embossing as that is what this challenge is all about!! So sad to see Casual Fridays challenges go. I have been entering into these challenges for many years and enjoyed them very much. All good things do come to an end I guess. My tall card features a variety of embossing folders and a Santa cut with my Silhouette. Nuvo drops for the berries and nose. Darkroom door stamps for the Ho Ho Ho. Check out all the details over at CASUAL FRIDAYS.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!

Casual Fridays #214 Inspiration challenge

Today's card is for the Casual Fridays challenge. You can check it out the details HERE This is the inspiration photo.
And here's my card. 

I used a Stripe Tim Holtz folder and the new Tin Tile embossing folder from SU and decked it up with some sponging and Nuvo dots. The Merry Christmas is a very old stamp set (no name) kind. Trees and the branches SU.

Gold card for CFC #213

Shades of Gold is what my card today is all about. I'm entering into the challenge at Casual Fridays and you can see it HERE For my sentiment I used a background stamp from Stampin Up. Probably one of the first stamps I ever bought. The velum heart is simply dipped on the versamark ink and then I embossed that. I think it would be perfect for a birthday or wedding.

Make It Monday revisited #305

 I absolutely loved Laurie's card and tried to pretty much make it to a tee. Mine feels like it fell a bit short but here it is just the same. Check out her video HERE . On my card I used PTI Wreath for all Seasons (embossed on background) and the middle die is PTI. Bkgrnd die is Spellbinders. Sentiment is Darkroom door. Pine needles by SU. Background leaves are PTI Holiday Tree.

Winter Birthday card

I am sharing a card that I made for the Casual Fridays Challenge # 212 sketch challenge. Details HERE For my card I sponged some TH spun sugar into a masked rectangle to create a bit of a background for my snowflakes. Added some rhinestones and shimmery paint to the snowflakes to bling them up for a winter birthday card. Stamps are from SU. This is the sketch photo.

And here is my take on it.
