Let It Snow

Good morning and happy Sunday to you all!
 
We have provided you with a color pallet this week at Christmas Card Challenges but it's totally optional. It's only there to give you inspiration and a jumpstart on your card making.
 

My card today features Polar Bear Pals by MFT. I bought this set around Christmastime when they had a big end of the year sale going on. I finally got to ink it up for the first time the other day. The sentiment is by Gna K. Designs called Compliments of the Season.

All My Love

Good morning and thanks for dropping in!
 
 Tomorrow is Valentine's Day so I whipped up this card for my husband using an image and sentiment from a mini stamp set by Gina K. Designs called Vintage Rose. You can receive this mini set free this month with a purchase of $75.00 or more! 
 
The image I used was stamped repeatedly towards the top and one side of my card panel and colored in with my Prisma Colored Pencils. Lastly, I embossed the panel with a hexagon cover plate by PTI to give it a quilted look.

Christmas Card Challenges #6

Good morning all!

We have a photo challenge for you this week. We would like to see you pull out your horse stamps, if you have any, and create a project and upload it to our gallery. This is optional, as long as it is Christmas related your good to go.
 

I only have two sets that have horse images on it. I think this may be only the second card I have made that included a horse.
 
I smooshed the background with die inks onto water color paper . After it dried I simply stamped my images and my card was done. Quick and easy.
 
The horse and fence image are from the set Country Roads 2 and the snowflakes are from Dashing, both by Gina K. Designs.

Addicted to Stamps and More #228 - Holiday

Hello and welcome to a new challenge!
 
This week we would like to see your holiday cards. I chose Christmas but it can be any holiday you want.

 
 
I like to shop at the Gina K. Designs store Village Paper and Ink that is less than an hour away from my house located in Greendale Wi. If your ever in the Milwaukee area I encourage you to stop by her store. She is there almost every day and not only does she sell her own products but she sells products from other companies as well.
 
My card today features Gina's line of foil mate images that can be used in any foil laminating machine. I use the Royal Sovereign which I purchased through Amazon.
 
For the background I used the Large Snowflakes image sheet and for the sentiment I used Holly Jolly Greetings. I used rose gold foil on both. Let me tell ya, this is addicting!
 
Stop by and play along with us. We would love to see you in our gallery!

Today I created a card by stamping images from Altenew's Floral Frames and a sentiment from Birch Land onto a die cut panel from MFT's Blue Prints #27.
