Tonight I have two cards for you. It's not often that I have extras to post but I seem to have a bunch that I haven't posted lately. I guess I've been putting more time into my crafting and I'll have any easier time getting my birthday cards out next month. LOL! The first one is a winter card that I made to send to a friend. Since my MIL passed away right before Christmas I didn't get all my Christmas cards out, so I'm trying to play a little catch up and send out some winter cards to those I missed.
The image and sentiment is from the free stamp of the month from DeeDee's Digis. Anyone can grab this one this month. I tried for a monochromatic look; well almost. Two different paper from my scrap box and a snowman winter ribbon. I die cut the image with Spellbinder's Inverted Circles and then added the sentiment. I used the Paper Players Sketch.
I am entering my card into these challenges:
Now for the second:
This was the original card I made for the Outlawz CAS challenge this week. (It's anything goes and it's easy to play along.) But the first one had a lot of glue marks on. I made a second one and had a stray coloring mark, so I finally made an entirely different card for the challenge. I've cleaned these up a bit so I can use them though. I used the ek Success punch and inlaid the pieces together in different color combinations. I stamped the envelope and sentiment from the Gina K stamp set. And to finish it off I have these little sparkly hearts that I won in a blog candy and I sprinkled them around the card.
I am entering these challenges:
- Simon Says challenge: have a heart
- Hiding in my Craft Room: any holiday
- Sentimental Sunday: anything goes
Well, that's finally it for tonight. It was much longer than I usually go on. Hope your week is off to a great start. Be safe and warm wherever you are.
