It’s my pleasure to host this week & a big congrats to Crystal, the newest Featured Stamper (FS615)! She has a big, beautiful gallery & there were many I wanted to case, but I kept coming back to THIS. I kept pretty much everything..the layout, the Christmas theme..but I used different images & made my own backgrounds (except for the music oval).

After stamping & fussy cutting the bells, I stamped different Christmas words in cranberry onto the red layer & holly & snowflakes on the green w/ the oxide ink. The gold star was ciimped after die cutting & I added part of an oval of music behind the bells. I also added some looped gold thread behind the bells.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I’m back with another card for the Color Challenge (CC516) and this time I’m also combining it with the Technique Challenge (TLC519) to put the sentiment “down under”. For the dessert option on the Color Challenge, it was to use vellum. I actually have two different vellums on mine..the one covering the dp is a white w/ melon mambo pink dots all over it. I also have a plain white vellum strip with the bird and music stamped on it. I colored it on the backside and pierced all around the edges.

The dp behind the pink dotted vellum is only black & white but I added a little light pink to some areas. The layers were all die cut then I cut a curved separation at the bottom in order to stamp the greeting on the bottom layer of dk pink dp. I added some sequins and a few gems for sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Beaded Rock Star 05520
I’ve been absent  for so long, I feel really out of practice! For this card, I’m combining the color, sketch & ways to use it challenges. 

The white STAR word was die cut using a combo of alphabet dies & a star die. I cut a larger patterned red layer to go behind it, then cut out the middle so the brown star paper would show through. The pennant row & backing layer were also die cut, the letters stamped, hand cut & attached on top.

For the beaded part, I used some of those tiny clear holeless beads on the guitar wings & strung some seed beads to make a guitar strap.
