Cup Of Joy

CUP OF JOY

I used a free image from The Alley Way Stamps. It is digital image called Steamin’ Hot.

It has been a long time since my last post. Right after Thanksgiving weekend my husband Jeff and I had to prepare to go the Mohawk Flooring Convention in Orlando, FL. We spent 4 fun filled days seeing the latest introductions, attending sales workshops and of course eating all of the delicious goodies that the Gaylord Hotel provided for the convention.

Now that things have settled back into a routine for me I have been in my craft room again making cards. I am used this great free image from the Alley Way Stamps called Steamin Hot and my own typed sentiment to make this Christmas card. In order to play along with a Lawnscaping Challenge: Color Inspiration, I used turquoise and red for my card.

I am also going to enter this card into Aud Sentiments Challenge: Anything Goes and a DT Call.  Play along for a chance to win 3 of Birdie Brown’s digital images!

Happy Stamping,

Birdie Brown Freebie: For You

 

This is a Birdie Brown November Freebie stamp called, For You. I love the way the bright blue of my Copic Marker pops against the watercolor blue I used on the gentlemen’s coat! There is  glitter on the snowman’s tie and buttons but, it is hard to see in the photo. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Holiday Cheer clear stamp set.

I am entering this into Birdie’s monthly challenge: November Freebie Challenge  Head over to her blog and grab the freebie before it’s gone. And join in on the challenge for a chance to win more of her great digital images!

Happy Stamping,

Another Cute Hanukkah Card

I made another snowman Hanukkah card using my Stampendous, Stretchy Snowman stamp and my Lawn Fawn, Say Cheese stamp. The sky background was created with Tim Holtz Distress Ink colors Broken China and Concord Grape. The Cardinal comes from another Stampendous set called Jumbo Snowman and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Holiday Sayings Christmas cl343.

 

I was really thrilled with the torn paper technique that I tried out the other day so I used it again for this card. You can barely see the Star of David stamp that I added to the background paper but, I wanted to make sure that this card didn’t look like a Christmas card.

I am going to enter this card into the CAS-ual Fridays, So Torn challenge. I really want to win one of their new stamp sets!

Clean and Simple Holiday Card

I am entering this card into CAS-ual Fridays Over the Edge  challenge. Michele at  CAS-ual Fridays is celebrating the fact that she is launching a brand new stamp line this month. Join them for lots of sneak peaks, inspiration and prizes

                                    

I created a clean and simple holiday card yesterday using my Waltzing Mouse Festive Foliage stamp set. The hardest part of creating  this card for me  was the fact that I had to let the tag hang over the edge. I had to do so to enter this card into the CAS-ual Fridays latest blog challenge. Being a bit of a control freak it was really hard for me to “craft outside the lines” but, I think the final result looks great.

I will also be entering this card into A Blog Named Hero’s Clean Up Your Act, challenge.

Hero Arts White Out Challenge

This past Sunday I purchased Tim Holtz Distress Inks on sale ($2.99 each) at Michaels. I have seen these inks used in many cards but, I hadn’t had a chance to try them out myself, before this. They were so much fun to play around with! My favorite part is spritzing the colors with water and watching the way the change to a softer look. I added a snowflake look with the tip of a wet paint brush.
After layering my background I stamped the pine tree from Stampin Up A Lovely as a Tree in Versamark ink and then I embossed them with Stampendous Silver powder.

I am entering this card into A Blog Named Hero’s White Out Challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp. There are still 2 days left to play along.

Happy Stamping,

Oh, Tannenbaum!

I used a freebie stamp from the Alley Way Stamps to create a card for their Be Inspired #7 challenge. I love their super cute stamp sets! But, I am broke as a joke and I can’t afford to order a stamp set. So….I am hoping to win one!

I colored the trees with my Prisma Color pencils, cut them out and then glued them onto a 1″ paper circle. I added a paper rosette to hide the gaps between the tree points. The sentiment frame is from Stampin’ Up and the sentiment is another freebie from The Alley Way Stamps.  There is still plenty of time to play along if you’d like.

I am entering my card at The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired # 7 Come and Play challenge.

Wish me luck!

The Alley Way Stamps Christmas in July

Posted on

The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) is hosting a Be Inspired Challenge based on Christmas in July. In order to let those who may not own any TAWS stamps play along, they offer some freebie images on their blog that can be used. These three little trees are one such set!

The sentiment I used on this card is a vinyl rub on from EAD Designs‘ Christmas Sentiments 2 set. I really loved how sturdy the vinyl is and how easily it transferred onto my cardstock.

Here’s a close up of the card I made using a free image from The Alley Way Stamps. I coated the trees in Glossy Accents after coloring them with Prisma  Colored pencils blended with Gamsol.

As you may have guessed I am entering this card into the BE inspired Challenge #6 Something NEW challenge .

Happy Stamping,
