Merry Monday #57

Yay, I received an Honorable Mention for this card from Merry Monday #57:)

Honourable Mention


Well, I think I’m just going to have to say that there is never a “normal” day or week around here! 😦   I’m also kinda thinking I will never catch up! 😦   But, being me, I will still try! 🙂

This week over at Always Playing With Paper, they went back to all sketches:)  So this weeks sketch for Merry Monday #57 looks like this:

MM New Look Sketches-002I made two cards for this challenge.  I am trying to put aside extra cards for “Send A Smile 4 Kids”.  You can click on my link on the left side to find out about this worthy cause:)

Here is my first card, you can click on it to make it larger:

Poster3I always use mostly Stampin’ Up! products, and that’s true for this card as well.  But first, I’ll tell you about my pre-colored digital image from Raspberry Road Designs.  The central image is from a digital kit called Christmas Cookies Side Clusters.  I’ve used Raspberry Road Designs before, they’re very easy to work with:)  I used one of their papers, and then topped it with a side cluster.

Under that I used Stampin’ Up! Real Red, and Gumball Green.  I used a SU embossing folder that’s not in the current catalog:( The sentiment is from SU Short and Sweet-retired. Lastly I added some basic pearls from SU and Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the image.  A simply made card;)

Now for my second card, you can click on it to make it larger:

Poster4Yep, you guessed it, a wonderful Fred She Said image:)  Pre-colored digital images help make a lot of my cards Simply Made😉  This image is called Hat Tipping Snowman. This product includes both Pre-coloured and Digi/Uncoloured images.  There are 2 coloured versions plus  “antiqued” versions.  PNG’s (no background) and ready-to-print sheets are also included 🙂

I think this is a fun card for a child:)  I didn’t pop up the whole red paper, just the snowman. I used Stampin’ Up! digital paper, Frostwood Lodge (plaid), Real Red, Garden Green and Basic Black. The sentiment is a misc stamp that I had in my drawer.

Thanks for stopping by today:) !  I hope you like my cards:)  I hope to be back very soon with another card:)

    Both are lovely. The embellishments near the side of the circle in the first one really make it pop and I love the plaid in the second.
