I have two more cards today:) I’ve been staying up way too late! 😦 It’s the only time that it’s quiet around here;) The first card is for the Merry Monday challenge #82. I used an earlier MM sketch from challenge #69. I don’t think I did that challenge at the time, but I thought it would work for this week:) The challenge this week is to use Red, Aqua, White and use circles.
I honestly had no idea where I was going with this until I sat down and started to play. I decided on the circle mints first. I cut them with a Stampin’ Up! 1 inch punch out of a whole 12 x 12 sheet. I love this paper! I also love the background DSP, it’s the new Winter Frost paper from Stampin’ Up!. It’s actually the back side of a sheet. On top of that I use a little Whisper White and then one of the new In Colors, Coastal Cabana, looks like Auqa to me;) The little stripes with dots, is like a paper ribbon that comes already glued. I’ve actually had it for at least a year, and just now used it. The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado, I’ve had it for a very long time too:) This card will be entered in the Merry Monday #82 challenge, but it will be mailed to Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂
My next card is for the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, sponsored by Fred She Said! If you want a chance to win some Fred She Said images, head over there and enter! I’m on the FSS Design Team so I can’t enter, but you can! 🙂 The theme for this challenge is Traditional Christmas Colors, with a twist. So they would like to see Red, Green and Silver and/or Gold. How easy is that? I know you can do it! 🙂
For my card, I used an old sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, #93. Here it is:
Here’s my second card:
At the back I used Basic Black from Stampin’ Up!, on top of that I used a silver paper from Michaels. Then Stampin’ Up! Garden Green embossed with a Sizzix folder. I used more silver behind the SU Read Red stripe, and the Real Red square. The main image is from Fred She Said called, Christmas Cardinal from the Christmas Bird Series. I LOVE Cardinals!! I love so many of the Fred She Said images, I know I always say it’s one of my favorites, but this one really is at the top of the list! I will also be sending this card to Send A Smile 4 Kids. They are hoping to get enough cards so the children can give cards to their favorite nurses or doctors too:)
Thanks for coming by today! 🙂 It’s always nice to be able to share my cards:) More cardmaking for me tonight! 🙂
