Thanksgiving Finale

Stampendous Pilgrim Chicks
Denami Designs Gobbler

Cards for the grand kids. I made two of the Denami Designs turkey for the girls and the pilgrim chick for our grandson. GKD Designer Paper and Cardstock. Sentiments from the dollar bins. I’m going to have to start looking for those adorable online images that Gerry always finds. Thanks for looking.

StampTV November “Let It Snow” Challenge

Stamp TV November Monthly Mix Challenge

Playing along with the StampTV November Monthly Mix Challenge “Let It Snow” and CASE-ing Kristina Werner’s Day 6 Holiday Card Series 2019. My stamps were GKD’s: Winter Cheer, Holiday Season, Snow One Like You, Season’s Greetings, Holiday Hospitality. I used my Silhouette cut files for all of these snowmen…no fussy cutting. Cut out snowflakes using SSS Sensational Snowflakes die on glitter paper and used the Newton’s Nook Hills and Grass stencil for my snow banks. Added some gems and sequins for my shaker card. Not always a fan of shaker cards but this came together nicely.

Red and White Challenge

ModSquad Challenge Red and White — That’s It Challenge

My entry into the ModSquad Challenge “Red and White — That’s It” challenge uses stamps from GKD Sentimental Sentiments StampTV Kit, Season’s Greetings, Cherry Red and pure white cardstock, versamark, fine detail white embossing powder, Sakura white gelly roll pen. Stamped and heat embossed the branches and ornament on cherry red cardstock, stamped the Christmas sentiment and die cut the outline three times mounting for a little dimension, the other sentiments were from the same stamp set. I challenged myself to add the little * and dots with the gelly roll pen…whew it worked.

Neutral Fall Challenge

Double D Challenges: Neutral Fall Challenge

My focus on the Neutral Fall Challenge Mood Board was on whites, grays, sunflower and white pumpkins…..none that photograph very well. I used the GKD Autumn Splendor StampTV Kit, clear and white fine detail embossing powder, versamark ink, Memento London Fog and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks and Impressions Obsession die. I think it looks better IRL but since I made it decided to enter into the Double D Challenge anyway. I don’t think neutrals are my thing.

Thanks for looking.

Snowflake Stencils by Bonnie

Snowflake Stencil #1
Snowflakes #2
Snowflakes #3

Three cards made using the snowflake stencils by Bonnie. First card was made on navy cardstock, sponged on light blue ink and then sprayed with Glitter Dust for some shine. I added some die cut snowflakes and sentiment in glitter cardstock and gemstones.

2nd card is again in blue but a lighter blue, ink stenciled, added some sparkle and then stamped the church scene on top in black ink.

3rd card was stenciled in Distress ink topped with Nuvo glitter paste, ran two rows of double adhesive tape and added glitter (what a mess), die cut some snowflakes and sentiment in sparkle cardstock , added some ribbon.

Thanks so much for your generosity, Bonnie.

Halloween Tags

Happy Halloween

Treat bags for B&C (grandchildren) filled with some goodies. Bags were from SSS included in the Halloween Stamptember kit, Mr. Skull-head is a Tim Holtz Sizzix framelits w/stamps and embossing folder. Ha-llama-ween Llama is a Reconciliations Halloween stamp set with 4 different llamas and a sentiment. Both on clearance at my Michael’s.

Have a BOO-tiful day!

Blue at 9 minutes and 50 seconds

As You See It Challenge #212

The As You See It Challenge #212 was “I want you to color me – Quickly”. Blue and under 10 minutes. So I gathered up the GKD: Background Diagonal Stamp, Navy and White cardstock, navy and powder blue ink, Memory Box Snowflake Joy die, and some glitter dotted cardstock (unknown paper pad). Moved my Big Shot within reaching distance, the cardstock was ready so was the Misti….GO….Stamped the diagonal in navy — where’s the tidy towel pulling baby wipes turning the background stamp, inking with powder blue…done! Running the Joy die through the Big Shot not once, not twice but three times! (after the first time through the big shot discovered I had two pieces of cardstock — one went flying) Oh brother, all of those little pieces in the snowflake, found the pick and started pushing them out. I glued the J and Y in place layered three times leaving the snowflake for last in case I didn’t get three completed. I glued the middle snowflakes from the die to the card front too. If only I had a little more time, I would have added some bling to the little snowflakes and lined up that snowflake O a little better. My heart was racing but made it to the card front; my fingers are still blue but mission completed in 9 minutes and 50 seconds!

ModSquad Sentiment Says It All Challenge

ModSquadChallenge – Sentiment Says It All

This card is for the 2 week ModSquadChallenge hosted by Joyce “Sentiment Says It All”. On my card I used GKD: Autumn Wreath Builder and StampnFoil Thankful Leaves, Lucky Clover layering cardstock and a combination of inks and distress oxides. The leaf stencil is from SimonSaysStamps. I added some gold thread as an accent. This is the softer version of my card and the one entered into the challenge.

Here’s the second version of the card, I inked the stencil and then topped with Brutus Monroe Glitter Glaze (Glow in the Dark). I made more variations of this same card using kraft cardstock, brown, lucky clover cardstock. I added GKD Glitz Glitter Gel in gold to a few but it covers up the sponged inks so I think I like the glaze better.

Second version of the challenge card

Glitz or Soft??? Which one do you like better??


Christmas Noel – Reconciliations

I picked up a really cute stamp and die set with 50% Michael’s coupon that I couldn’t resist . My patterned paper is Holiday Bash also from Recollections. I added some SimonSaysStamp Sensational Snowflakes in their glitter cardstock and since I wanted to showcase the patterned paper these are 5×7″ cards.

Thanks for looking. These will be for two girlfriends. We meet monthly for dinner and a cocktail so I believe they will get a kick out of them.
