This is one of the Christmas cards that I'm sending out. I've made a bunch of different ones, but they're all very similar - simple but nice. This one uses Old Olive as a base with Real Red and DSP for layering. I can't remember the DSP off the top of my head but it's the one in the mini (frosty day?). I love it and will have to make sure I get at least one more pack before the catty ends! I used Baja Breeze ribbon around the layers. The stamp is from Cute & Curly and is punched out with the Curly Label punch. I stamped it again in Old Olive and then cut out the oval and mounted it using a dimensional.
This card uses Blue Bayou as a base (5.5 square). The patterned paper is by Basic Grey (Granola) - I LOVE it! I need to buy lots more, I think :) I did have some trouble matching the colours with my stash of solid papers but I do like how it turned out. I used Night of Navy and Chocolate Chip underneath the patterned layers. I ran Blue Bayou ribbon along the side and made a little bow for it. I'm not happy with the bow so I think I'll have to adjust that before sending this one out. There are crystal rhinestones on the bottom right corner as well. Tilda in striped tights is coloured in using Copics, of course! I have more of these on my wish list for Christmas :)
Thanks for looking, as always. I love hearing what you all have to say! Stay healthy and the countdown is on! I hope you're all more organized than I am this year. I'm not finished any of the gifts/cards I'm making. Yikes!

I submitted this card for the first Pink Cat Studios challenge. I love how it turned out, even if I deviated a little from the rules (I used 3 different types of embellishments instead of 3).
The challenge was to use:
1 ribbon (twill tape)
2 backgrounds (Basic Grey Boxer printed paper)
3 embellishments (stapes, star brads, swirl clip.
I used Cranberry Crisp for my base along with Night of Navy and River Rock (all from Stampin' Up!). I coloured in Billy with Copics, blending a red and a brown for his handkerchief and pants to make more of a "cranberry crisp" colour - it looks perfect in person). I sponged the edges of the image panel with River Rock ink and stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip on the twill.
Thanks for looking and a special thank you for all my followers!

So, that brings me to this stamp set: Out on a Limb plus the additions! The branch with the leaves, berries, flowers is beautiful! I wanted to make a fall card and this is what I came up with.
I used Really Rust, Ruby Red, Brocade Blue, and Apricot Appeal cardstock from SU! for the base and layers of the card. Images are stamped on PTI Stamper's Select White using Close to Cocoa ink for the branch and Really Rust and Ruby Red for the leaves. I pierced the Apricot Appeal layer and used 4 Apricot Jam baubles from Stamping Bella.
Thanks for stopping by!

I've been making a lot of Tilda cards for the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group that I'm a part of. There are a few activites that I participate in: Raining Cards, Card Mingle and now the Birthday RAK (random act of kindness). For Raining Cards, 4 people are choosen each month and everyone who participates, sends a card to those 4. This month was my month and it's been FABULOUS getting beautiful cards almost daily! The Card Mingle involves being paired up with another person and you send them a card for that month that is based on a theme. September was Back-to-School and October was Autumn. The Birthday RAK is straight forward. You're given a name and you send a card from the whole group. It's a great way to practice your stamping skills (and who can forget fun!).

Anyway, if you've made your way here, welcome and I will be posting some cards soon.
NOTE TO VISITORS: I apologize for the posts - I'm new to blogger and am getting used to blogging with it. I'm sure there will be layout issues all over the place until I get it all sorted out!
