Tic Tac Toe Challenge TTTC144 – Featured Designer Joanne


This week at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I worked with the center column: BIRTHDAY, CAS, SPARKLE.  My card is very sparkly, I used various colors of Mirracard atop black cardstock.  I die cut the sentiment 5x out of 5 colors of Mirracard, and assembled the bits and pieces on a black cardstock panel before adhering to a cardbase.

Enjoy.

FUSION - It's a New Year!


This week at FUSION, we are working with a PHOTO inspiration featuring a bokeh celebration, and a sketch with two small elements above a centered banner.  I used a combination of the sketch and photo in my card.  I took Jeanne's lead with her DT card by depicting bokeh with sparkly sequins in a shaker card.  I created the shaker with the fabulous edge-to-edge technique.  I sealed a panel of black cardstock with packaging film, and filled the shaker with a gold, orange and red sequin mix.  The sentiment is die cut from gold Stardream cardstock. I added two large gold star sequins above the sentiment.  To finish the "stars", I added a gold dot over the sequin hole.

Enjoy.

Color Throwdown #675


This week at the Color Throwdown, we are working with the COLORS red, gray, blue and green.  I used a Concord & 9th turnabout stamp to incorporate the colors, mounting the stamped panel on a Stardream cardbase. The sentiment was die cut 3x, layered and adhered.  The final touch was several water drop gems.

Enjoy.

Freshly Made Sketches #518 - A Sketch by Judy


This week at Freshly Made Sketches, we are working with a CAS sketch.  One central, circular image in the bottom right of the card.  My nutty pair is stamped, Copic colored and fussy cut. The wood grain panel was die cut with a circle die, the opening backed with kraft paper. The sentiment was white embossed. The image was adhered between the two layers.

Enjoy.

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #535


This week at Cupcake Inspirations, we are creating cards featuring my favorite beverage, COFFEE!  In keeping with a New Year goal to learn and be more comfortable in making interactive cards, I have made a pop up gift card.  This card was made easy with the use of a Karen Burniston set.  I followed along with Karen's YouTube video... and presto, a pop up!  It folds so nicely and yet has so much dimension. Just amazing. All the pop up elements are from the set.  The front of the card is simply a stamped sentiment.

Enjoy!

This past week LeAnne Pugliese taught me how to create a table in blogger.  I am going to play around with this table and make it work for this blog.

Just Us Girls #615 -- COLOR Week


Lisa Kind is hosting this week's COLOR challenge at Just Us Girls.  Lisa is challenging us to make cards using LIGHT BLUE, WHITE and SILVER.  I decided the colors called for a snowy collage.  The card base is Paperandmore (OOB) striped silver cardstock. The central wreath is Memory Box' Frostyville Wreath, die cut from silver Mirracard.  The light blue, die cut snowflake is the Simon Says Stamp Eliza snowflake.  The corner snowflake spray is from Memory Box, die cut from silver criss cross embossed cardstock.  The sentiment is from Savvy Stamps, die cut and layered 3x, from white cardstock.  The final touches are small pearls, light blue gemstones and star sequins.

Please remember we have two fabulous guest designers for the month of January, as well as two new design team members.  Please be sure to stop by, check out their posts, and leave them a little love.

Enjoy!  Looking forward to your creations in the gallery!

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge January 2022 Anything Goes


This month at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge, the mood board features lots of PURPLE and BLACK.  I made a simple one layer card.  I distressed the card base in Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves.  I stamped one of the ghosts from Picket Fence (Not scared? You should be) in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The sentiment is white embossed, from Impression Obsession Try Not to Lose Your Head.

Enjoy!
