Mittens Christmas cu 07050
Weekly-Favorite
Today’s Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast (IC510) is a Pinterest Board full of beautiful drinks. I was really inspired by THIS picture Audrie picked & I tried to find it on the board but gave up after the first couple of thousand pictures, lol. I think that board has no end! I was also inspired by a card I saw who knows how long ago or where that had these cute little mittens & crimped kraft paper.

Since it’s all about drinks, it’s appropriate that I had one of those coffee cup wrappers & used it for my crimped layer.  I stamped the snowflakes & splatter on a white front using corduroy distress ink then attached the card board. The mittens were a little trickier..I have a mitten punch, but it was nowhere near big enough. I punched 2 mittens out of a piece of scrap kraft c/s, put them on the copier & blew them up about 200% then cut those out to use as templates for my white mittens w/ kraft colored cuffs. Ahhh…perfect size! I also stamped the cuffs w/ the woven plaid border & embossed a snowflake on each mitten before adding them & some twine to join them.

The greeting was stamped w/ sepia Versafine & I used a couple of earth tone Tombow markers to color. The bottom was cut w/ a die & I hand cut around the top. Here’s a look at the inside.  Mittens Christmas inside 07052

Dads Pegboard cu 06420
Weekly-Favorite
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge(WT536) is Get Grungy! I think a tool pegboard would be grungy enough, but I also grunged up background quite a bit.
Dads Pegboard 06415
To make the large bg, I glued some heavy duty aluminum foil to card stock & embossed it. I covered the entire piece with white acrylic paint & after it dried, I sponged on some Distress inks then sanded some areas down. The pegboard was die cut out of dp & the edges were sponged before I attached all the tools. I also used foil covered c/s for the tool heads. A couple of screw head brads were attached to the greeting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT430), we are to feature music and/or instruments. I went w/ the music as these are words from “America the Beautiful”. I’m still hearing the song every time I look at my card.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I love Patriotic cards and images and there’s nothing finer than the old red, white & blue. This card was fairly quick and easy. I cut a section of designer paper that included the flag and attached it on a navy blue layer. The eagle and musical sentiment were stamped w/ denim ink and colored w/ Copics. I die cut it using my Out of the Box Nestie technique using a Spellbinders deckled rectangle. With the die in place, I sponged a little antique linen ink on it. This was a left over piece of vanilla c/s and I think it must have been around a long time because when I removed the die, I noticed some fine cracking when I bent it. I kind of liked it and to me, it went w/ the distressed look so I used it. I added a few stamped & punched out stars next to it. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
