It has been a long time since I have posted on here, with exception of some DT assignments. There has been A LOT going on but that will be a different post for another day this week!!!
Today I have a couple cards for some challenges. I was able to get in my craft room yesterday and play with some images that I had colored in/die cut /paper pieced when I had the time and made these into actual projects yesterday. I like when I can do this because I can get more done at one sitting!!!
My first card was I created using a few challenges as inspiration.
I used the Inspired By Challenge #153 as inspiration for my snowflakes and snowman, and Freshly Made Sketches #464 as the layout for my card. I actually flipped the sketch a little and changed where the sentiment was on the sketch but I used it for the overall orientation of my elements. I never know if this is okay or not!!
I used Spellbinders D-Lites Snowman die that I had paper pieced together as my main element.
The sentiment is from Mama Elephant and the paper is from an old 6" by 6" paper pad-Wish Season-from Fancy Pants. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Autumn Red for the berries on the hat and some Scrapbook.com Clear Shimmer Pen and Glossy Accents on his nose.
My second card was inspired by a sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday #486, this weeks The Color Throwdown #622, and The Library Challenge #73 book cover image.
I used the Kraft color in my card base and my tiny banner peeking out from the Spellbinders D-Lite's Santa that I had paper pieced together. I used the Santa in place of the large white circle on the sketch.
On the Santa's hat I used some Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter Accent, as well as some Clear Shimmer Pen and Glossy Accents on his nose.
I layered the Santa over some pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn "Perfectly Plaid Christmas" collection. The cream cardstock was embossed using a Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folder.
Instead of using circles like the sketch, I substituted snowflakes that I had die cut last summer. I am OBSESSED with snowflake dies and have TOO MANY for me to even tell you what companies these are from!
