Christmas Card Challenges #48

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. Our challenge this week is everyone's favorite - Anything Goes. The background of this card was made from my Gelli Plate. I just got it a few weeks ago and I've had so much fun experimenting with it. I used some Dina Wakely paints and Dylusions Christmas stencils on this background. For the words I used Dina Wakely White Paint and a Tim Holtz Stencil. Then I added some Prima Wire Thread with three little bells from Stampin' Up.

***Also, Christmas Card Challenges is holding a Design Team Call. Just add a link to your blog if you are interested. Click here for more details.***

I'm excited to see what you come up with this week for this fun challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

Curtain Call Challenge - Burlap Banner

I made this card for the current Curtain Call Challenge - Burlap Banner. Of course, I was inspired by the burlap banner and that orange color in the middle panel. I just cut some burlap into triangles, then cut some decorative paper into slightly bigger triangles and glued them together to make the banner, The green jute string is from Tim Holtz. The patterned papers are all from the Studio Calico - South of Market paper pad. I made the bird from a Media Mixage die. I outlined the card and the bird with an orange Stamper's Big Brush Pen. Finally I added the letters to the banner. It's a simple card, but it was really fun to make and I like how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by!

Here's my card.

Christmas Card Challenges #47

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. This week we have a photo inspiration challenge. I was inspired by the snow globe and the colors. I used my new Papertrey Ink Snow Globe Shaker Die. The trees are foam stickers I had in my stash and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up. The snowflake dies came with the snow globe and I added round dots of Stickles around them to look like snow. I'm can't wait to see what you come up with this week for this fun challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

Here is the inspiration photo:

The graveyard and ghost dies are from Memory Box and the stitched letter template is from a We-R-Memory Keepers Holiday Sew Easy Template. I've really been wanting to use that stitching stencil and I finally got a chance. I used very think Friendship Bracelet Thread I bought at Wal-Mart. The ghosts were cut out of white glitter paper.
