Gold and Silver Noel

A very quick post today, as I have a card I wanted to share before the deadline passes.

It has been awhile since I played along with Merry Monday, and I couldn’t resist this week’s challenge of using black, gold and silver.

My card:


The inspiration for the layout of the card, comes from sketch #303 at Clean and Simple Stamping

Thanks for taking a look! Hope you all have a happy Saturday!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold Foil Paper

Ink: Basic Black, Metallic Gold Encore Ink, Metallic Silver Encore Ink

Stamp Sets: Festive Flurry, Gorgeous Grunge, Greetings of the Season

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Festive Flurry Framelits, Frosted Finishes (R)

Snowflakes in July!

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s time for a new colour challenge at Sunday Stamps and we are using Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla and Strawberry Slush.


Isn’t our inspiration photo so yummy?  I know the colours are very non-traditional, but I couldn’t resist using that inspiration and creating a wintery/Christmas card.

I created the background by stamping some snowflakes, from the Festive Flurry stamp set, with Versamark, and then embossed with clear emboss powder.  The large pink snowflake is popped on with a dimensional and a few Rhinestone Jewels and a Frosty Finishes Embellishment finishes things off.

The inspiration for the layout, comes from this week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

Please do check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to be inspired by what they have come up with!

And just to keep things fair, please remember that we do have a few rules. You can check them out here.

The deadline to submit your creation is Friday, August 8th, at 6pm (EST), so there’s plenty of time to play along!

Hope to see you in the gallery!

Christmas in July!

It has been far too long since I played along with the Merry Monday challenge.  So when I saw that this week’s challenge called for sequins, I couldn’t pass it up! So I attempted a very non-traditional Christmas card, using the following challenges:

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #117 – Use Sequins

Clean & Simple Stamping – #299

Addicted to Stamps – Challenge #104 – Clean and Simple (CAS)

My card:


This was so much fun to create and I just loved getting a chance to use some of the new In-Colour sequins from Stampin’ Up! I just wish they came in more colours!!

Stick around, because up next is my card for a brand new challenge at Seize the Birthday, that starts today!
