Challenge Your Stash

 Well I don't know how it happened but the month of November has just flown by.  I almost forgot today is the 28th and that I needed to post my card I made for our Challenge Your Stash Group on Splitcoaststampers.  Kari was our hostess this month and her theme was to reuse/recycle/repurpose.  


For my card I used this adorable stamp set from Close to my heart called Gnome For Christmas.  I colored the images with my copic markers and then fussy cut them out.  My reuse part of the card is at the bottom where I used some polyfill stuffing from a pillow I was going to throw away.  Thought it would make perfect snow.  

Thanks Kari for a great challenge and helping us to "Think outside the box".

PIP Challenge #2147

 I am excited for our challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies this week.  Our Challenge this week (#2147) is being sponsored by Lawn Fawn.  I just love all the adorable stamps that Lawn Fawn has.  

The hardest part for me this month on the challenge was which stamp set should I use?  I have so many and it was a tough decision.  Since Christmas is right around the corner I have decided to use the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set.  
I think foxes are just the cutest animals and have such fun personalities so of course I had to use a fox in my card.  I stamped the fox/star image on tan paper and then colored the image.  I cut out the snow globe and then cut out the center circle.  I added an acrylic circle behind the snow globe and then used thin foam tape to adhere to the fox image.  I added some glitter before adhering to the image.  I used some snowflake paper for the background and used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside border for the bottom of the card.

This was such a fun shaker card to make.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out what the rest of the design team has created over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies for our challenge this week.

Classy Card Ladies

 Well I don't know how it happened but the 15th of the month has rolled around again which means it is time for our Classy Card Ladies challenge.  This is our last challenge for the year as we will be taking the month of December off.  Our challenge this month is sent from Carol and Shelly.  

Carol and Shelly decided our theme this month would be Celebrate the seasons and play tic-tac-toe.


For the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge we are to pick a row of three and use all of those elements on your card.  For my card I decided to use the center row which includes Ribbon, Ornament and a Christmas Tree.  You will see on my card below that I embossed the tree with gold embossing powder which has ornaments hanging from the tree.  I used some gold ribbon at the bottom of the Merry Christmas Paper strip. 

The items I used for this card are:
Image - Unity Christmas Tree of Hope, Joy, Love
Designer Paper - Paper Studio
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby

It is always fun to see what the other girls do with the image sent.  Shelly actually sent me the Unity stamp which will be a great addition to my Christmas Stamps.  Click on each name below and see what the other girls did with the challenge this month.

PIP Challenge #2145

 Time for Challenge #2145 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.  Today's challenge is being sponsored by Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.

                                           

For my card today I decided to use a digital stamp that they have in their store called "Patridge Digi".  I am thrilled that they have digital stamps and clear stamps to choose from.  

I printed the image off on my printer and then colored it with my copic markers.  The sentiment comes with the stamp set.  The background papers are from LDRS Creative called Christmas Cottage.

Be sure and check out the Cas-Ual Fridays Stamps store because they have some wonderful stamps to choose from.
