It’s almost Christmas! Only a few more days! Are y’all ready? I still have lots of wrapping and baking to do. Not really sure why I’m always behind, but no matter how well I think I plan, it always comes down to the wire. And there’s always that one gift that goes missing. According to the tracking, it’s been doing a winter vacay in Colorado since Dec 13. How do I get a deal like that, lol?

I made this for today’s Sketch Challenge (SC364) and yesterday’s Color Challenge (CC354) at Splitcoast. Wonderful sketch and it turns out the colors are kinda nice together. Not sure I would have ever come up w/ the combo, but it’s growing on me.

All images are Our Daily Bread designs. With these colors, I figured I would have a tough time trying to make a last minute Christmas card, so I packed that idea in pretty quickly and went w/ a spring card. I inked the clover w/ the lime ink, wiped off the little clover blooms and inked them w/ a wisteria marker. The sentiment was stamped first w/ the rose coral ink then lined up and stamped again w/ the grape ink. I used a coral marker to highlight a few of the words.

I die cut it using the out of the box Nestie technique and added a coral layer and lacy square layer out of dp.

For the circular element on the left, I die cut a piece of sparkly lime dp using a Cheery Lynn die. I used the same die on a piece of wisteria colored dp but did the emboss only. I attached the lime die cut on top and trimmed around the edges. Not really sure how this came about, but I put a coral like piece of c/s under the area I cut out of the lime and attached the die cut back on top, but a little off.

I added a cuttlebug embossed strip across the bottom, w/ a little stickles and attached to a 5.50 x 4.25 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Holidays!

t’s a wonderful sketch today (SC358) on Splitcoast and as you can see, my version morphed a little. It started out good, but then I had to move my window over to make room for the big poinsettia and found it looked better to have the window lower than the frame around it. Oh well.

All images & window die are Our Daily Bread designs. The little kitchen scene was stamped, colored and cut out. I used part of a Sizzix ef to emboss the dk red and attached the scene on top. The wood grain was stamped on the white c/s before the window was die cut. The curtains were die cut out of one of the dps. Both of the dp patterns are from an older Christmas stack and I cut out one little gingerbread man for the window. I cut two windows out of card board, sandwiched a piece of acetate between them then attached the window frame on top. I added a little stickles in the lower corners.I put the window back inside the leftover rectangle frame.

The poinsettia was also die cut and put together. I used a hole punch to punch some of the peppermint candies from the dp and used them for the center and also for the corners of the window frame. The finished card is 5 x 6.50 (A6).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Terrific challenges for yesterday and today! Didn’t have a chance to do the Featured Stamper (FS244)  yesterday so I’m combining it w/ today’s Technique Challenge (TLC346). Congrats to Julie! Loved her gallery and I chose Lace Edges to case. I kept the layout and colors similar but used different images, added the ornaments and used some embossing down one side instead of the punched border.

All images are Our Daily Bread designs. My stacked background was done by first stamping the snowflake bg w/ the sky blue ink. I stamped portions of the lg snowflake w/ sky blue & true blue pigment inks. The star like ornament was stamped w/ silver and the edges were sponged.

The 2 ornaments & sentiment were stamped w/ the midnight ink and I added some color to the ornaments w/ markers & a silver gel pen. On the right side of the ultramarine layer, I embossed only the right side of a lg frame embossing folder.

Originally, the crochet lace under the sentiment tag was white and it was going to stay that way. But I had a little mishap w/ an ink pad so I just colored the whole piece dk blue. Oh well. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
