For today’s Technique Challenge (TLC410), we were to use a Chalkboard Technique. Apparently I didn’t read or follow all of the instructions. Oh well. I did use white ink on my black “chalkboard”, but I bypassed the embossing and smearing of the “chalk”.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs and the frame image and die cut around the sentiment are sneak peeks of some new stuff being released tomorrow.

I used the chickadee image and matching die for the little bird and the sentiment and antique label were stamped w/ the chalk ink and die cut. I used a labels 8 and rectangle dies for the panels behind the chickadee. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thank so much for stopping by!

Happy New Year!

Since I was gone for Christmas, I still had a few cards to mail when I returned. For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC369), I thought THIS picture had great colors for a Holiday card…red on the sides and white in the middle.

The images are from DRS Designs. For my Holiday card, I stamped, colored and cut out the French Horn. I had this leftover white bg that I had splattered w/ red so I punched the poinsettia three time across the top and embossed the bottom then attached it to a larger red panel. I stamped the greeting on either side and used a template and white gel pen to add the faux stitching down the sides. A little simple and didn’t take a huge amount of time.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
When New Year comes around, I know I’ll need a birthday card for one of my sisters-in-law. And since she’s the only true winter birthday and lives where they usually have snow, I thought this greeting and all the snowflakes would be perfect. The images are all from DRS Designs. 

Winter and snowflakes always make me think of shades of icy blue. So I stamped the Lg Filigree Snowflake and 4 in 1 Snowflakes with white pigment ink and white embossed them for the large background. Then I sponged on all the blue inks then stamped a few more of the 4 in 1 snowflakes on top with clear ink and clear embossed them. I like the dimension the different inks and embossing give t the background. The Winter Wording Square was also white embossed and sponged before cutting out and attaching to a white layer. On the inside I stamped the Snow Doubt Birthday Greeting on the inside. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
