SCS Color Challenge CC510

It's time for the SCS Color Challenge.  This week Peggy was tired of red and green so she chose White, Black and Hello Honey, with a dessert of words of encouragement.

I used the super fun MFT Feather die-namics [love these things!] with a sentiment from Hero Arts, Remember.  I did have to use More Mustard since I don't have any Hello Honey.

Come on over to SCS Color Challenge and play along!  We would love for you to join in.

Christmas Break Challenges

I am so use to my blog being loaded up with my Team challenge stuff, I was shocked to see I actually had an empty day!  Then, it dawned on me - oh yeah, I'm on a break from 95% of my teams this week!  Cool -- off to find some challenges to play in~

I started with Curtain Call; Candy Cane

I used Simon Says Kate Snowflake die, along with a sentiment from my newest Hero Arts, Stamp & Cut Holiday Tree. I used Brusho powdered ink for my background.  These are so fun to create with.  HERE is a video I found showing how Brushos work.



I went on to play in Color Throwdown #323, along with the Retro Sketch #146.

I used the super fun Echo Park Camera & Happy dies with a fun coffee button.  [I tried to get close to the colors with CTD - unfortunately, the photo rather tweaked them.]

 

This made for a fabulous Monday!  Thanks challenges~

Inkspirational #72

I was really inspired by the photo that Inkspirational #72 had for their challenge.

Are you ready for their photo?

 
How did I do?  LOL I love it!  I used Fresh Squeezed, On Trend [OOB], along with a sentiment from STAMPlorations, Christmas & New Year. DH thought this card was "cool" ;) -- I rather liked it myself~

Just Us Girls #272



[So, if this looks familiar - I got dates and mixed and accidentally posted today's challenge last Saturday [whoops] - I'm thinking if you were planning ahead, it was a week long sneak peek for ya ;)]

Ina found a stunning color scheme!  [I adore the bird in this photo]  Anyway, you must used at least 3 of the colors shown, but feel free to use all of them if you are so motivated :).

I am using a new release from STAMPlorations; Trendy Butterflies.  This is also the free set that you will get with your 3rd shipment after you join in the Stamp Club over at STAMPlorations.  Check it out now [and lock in the price] because as of January, the rate will be increasing.

Meanwhile, using the colors above, make your card and enter it in over at Just Us Girls #272.  I can't wait to see what you create with these gorgeous colors!

A Monday Mood Board on Friday

I came across Tracy's Monday Mood Board #5 and was inspired.  While I was in Seattle,  meeting up with some fabulous stamping ladies, Amy was nice enough to let me cut out some Space Needle samples [thanks gf], and I was also given some goodies from Katie [thanks also!]

Put these all together and WALA a card that was inspired from Tracy's Mood Board!

How Fun! :)

ShowCAS Your Style #4

I'm joining in a super fun, fairly new challenge; ShowCAS Your Style #4. It's quite a fabulous sketch this week.


I finally found the tree punch I have been looking for since last year!  I love this fun tree from EK Success. [I scored it on sale at Hobby Lobby :).] My joy is from Hero Arts Holiday Sayings.

 

Just one today ;)

It's a Tag Day

I spent all day today making tags.  I do love using these fun items as a small gift.

Do you have a Silhouette?  If you don't, you need to get one!  This entire set of tags was made using my Silhouette.  Can I just say, the time saved... quite fabulous.  On top of that, the fun wreath image you see, that was a freebie given by Silhouette!  I did buy the tag shape, and the deer head?  That is a download from my computer that I made a cut file from it.  Yep, I love my Silhouette!  

Using Inspired By Stamping, Build a Stocking and cut file and Christmas Wreath and cut file, I made 3 sets of these tags.

I was inspired by Simon Says Wednesday Challenge photos:
Winter Inspiration

[The deer head in the middle and of course the fabulous Cardinal.]

Just thought I would share :)

Catherine & Cathy's last Challenge

Perusing challenges today I came across Catherine & Cathy's Tag Challenge #054.  They are also making this their last challenge.  I always hate to see challenges end, especially fun ones.  However, life does come first.

Meanwhile, the challenge was to use non traditional Christmas colors.  I can do that.

Out of all my Christmas images, I do have to say this Hero Arts reindeer is one of my favorites.  His sweater is just so adorable, right?  I saw this photo in one of my emails today and wanted to try for the same effect.

While I can see I need to glue together a little better, I do like the effect.

So, I think I accomplished this tag challenge, orange and yellow isn't traditional. :)

Dazzling Divas' #56 Challenge




It's time for the Dazzling Divas Challenge #56.  This challenge will go through the next 3 weeks [January 6]. That way, we also get to enjoy our Christmas. :). [Thanks Monica]  This is an anything goes challenge, being inspired by the above beautiful photo.


I my opinion, you absolutely can not go wrong when using the AALD craft metal sheets!  Every time I go to make a card [using this product], I can't believe how fabulous it is.  For my card today, I used [my favorite] Perfect Peacock, along with the backside of silver, for my punched ferns.  The metal just makes your card glow -- I love that!

Simon Says Flickr Challenge

I'm joining in today with a fun sketch challenge from Simon Says Flickr Challenge #8.

I would show you the photo of the sketch, but Flickr confuses me and I can't get a copy to load over here.  You'll just have to pop on over to the challenge.  The one requirement is you have to use SS products.  I used Flower Friend and the new fabulous Stitched Rectangles.  Boy, I love that set of dies!  I also used the fun colors from Pals Paper Arts #231.
12-11


Just for fun; I saw this photo on Pinterest and it completely motivated me!

I thought this was just adorable!

I had to add the pop of red :).  I used a sentiment from the same Simon Says set, Flower Friend.  My stitched panels are My Favorite Things Die-namics, Stitched Strips.

That's it for me today.
