A Couple of Challenges

Happy Monday!!

I am just popping in with some more Christmas cards I created for some challenges.

My first card I created for the present Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge. (PCC358)

I actually flipped the sketch because the images I wanted to use looked better horizontally

                                     (original sketch)                              (flipped sketch)

I was excited to use some pattern paper that has been in my stash forever on this card and once again used the stamp set that I have now idea where it came from.

I inked it up to make it look old fashioned. Not sure I like the look but it went with the papers I was using. The snowflake is one from my stash and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant.

This sketch was  a lot of fun because I was able to layer papers, something I rarely do.

My second card I created with the Happy Little Stamper's Christmas Challenge-Anything Goes.

I could have done an optional snarky comment but I don't have any of those type of sentiment stamps...yet. I ordered some by Hero Arts and cannot wait until I get them!! The holly die cut is from Memory Box. I colored it in with Copic Markers. Not sure I love it but it was fun to do.

The deer is from Mama Elephant and the sentiment is from Hello Bluebird. I kind of put this card together from hodgepodge on my desk.

One more Christmas card on the books!! Again, I am entering this into Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge-Anything Goes.

That is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!

Playing catch up Nora! Everything I've missed is fabulous. That stamp die is a fun one, I've never seen it before. Glad to hear your little pup is doing better ;)

Your cards have such an amazing design, Nora. The first card looks like a letter that has come a long way. Great card. The second card is so cute and funny. Both are great inspirations.

There's a lovely warmth about your postage stamp design, Nora ... it's vintage-y in a contemporary kind of a way! Your festive little reindeer is adorable against those peppermint stripes ... and so fun with that cute little sentiment! Hugs, Anita :)
