Challenge CFC #181

My card this week is for the challenge at Casual Fridays
  I have made a sympathy card with the kraft and white. I stamped an old Unity stamp (poppy) on the kraft background and used my embossing pen to fill it in although it looks grey on the photo. Then I embossed the velum with SU embossing folder and laid it over top. I embossed a white stamp again on white and colored it with a kraft pen then staggered them and adhered it with dimensional tape to give a 3D appearance.

Z fold card for Make it Monday

Second card I'm posting this week and this one is for the Make it Monday #295 challenge. It's  a z-fold card and all the info can be found HERE I used the Up and Away and Hello stamp sets by PTI and an old set from SU Through the trees. I gold embossed the balloons, sentiment and trees. The Zfold gave the balloons an appearance of lifting. I like it!

I used the CF Pretty Posies set. This set is so versatile! I also used a SSStamp die and SU sets Artistically Awesome and Simply Said. I glossed up the dragon fly and flower centers with glossy accents and added some Nuvo drops to the polka dots for a bit of dimension.

I just got a the new SU package of papers of the InColors. I wanted to use the Lemon Lime Twist and the Berry Burst together. My favourites along with the Powder Pink.

Christmas in July at Casual Fridays

It's Christmas in July over at Casual Fridays Challenge This will get everybody going thinking about their Christmas cards early..... maybe?

Here's my card for the challenge. I've made a little lantern card with some SU die cuts Sleigh Ride. I used a rotating color battery operated tea light in my card so I've added a couple of colors. It's really quite pretty with the revolving light. After I thought I was finished I decided to add a few more embossed snowflakes and a rhinestone to the snowflake cutout. The card folds down to a 4.5" x 4.5.
I used a bit of dimensional tape for the sentiment to prop up the back. I added Stickles for snow. The inside of the circle is covered with velum and I used my white pen to randomly add white dots for snowflakes. I used some pressure making the dots so that they look slightly raised.
