Create from Your Stash

 Today is reveal day for our Create from Your Stash group over at Splitcoaststampers.  

Pansy is our hostess this month and her challenge was Feeling Free.  Since I am making Christmas cards right now, I took the challenge a little further and used the word FREEzin.  With this hot weather we are having, it is nice to think of something cool.  

The papers I used are called Blizzrd by Gina K. Designs.  The penguin image is from Dare 2B Artzy called Penguin Fun.  I also used the snowflake slimline die by Dare 2B Artzy.  The sentiment is from North Pole by The Project Bin.  

Thanks to BYSH Cardmakers in getting me motivated to start on my Christmas cards.

BYSH Cardmakers Challenge

Thanks to BYSH Cardmakers:  Christmas in July Challenge, I am getting a nice start on my Christmas cards.  

For my card today I made a simple card using a kit I received in a swap on Splitcoaststampers.  Darlene had sent me the Lawn Fawn Frosties stamp and die set so I thought I would use it to make this card.
The paper I used was by Gina K called "Season's Greetings.  I colored a little bit of the snowflakes to match the papers.

I was going through a drawer and found this beautiful card holder that my friend Vannessa Osbourn had given me.  I just love it.

Be sure and check out all the wonderful cards on the BYSH challenge for some Christmas inspiration.

PIP Challenge #2329

 Time again for another challenge over at Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenges.  This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Sheepski Designs.

I found some beautiful images in her etsy store.  I sure hope you check it out.  For my card today I am using the digital stamp Penguin stack.  

I printed the image off and colored it with my copic markers and used a scalloped oval to cut the image out with.  I think the image makes the card.

I also decided to add this to the BYSH Cardmakers challenge since I have another Christmas card done because of their inspiration.

BYSH Cardmakers Christmas in July

 I have decided since this is July that I would get a jump start on my Christmas cards.  I found the Build Your Stash Holiday site and found some great inspiration there.

For my card today I am sharing a card that I made from a kit I received from a friend.  

The grinch stamp is by CC Designs called Green One.  I loved coloring him with my copic markers.  
The papers are from Recollections.  The Merry is by Taylored expressions.  What a fun card to make and great fun to make.

Thanks to BYSH Cardmakers for the inspiration and helping me get started on my Christmas cards.

PIP Challenge #2327

 Time again for another fun challenge over at Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenges.  This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Polkadoodles.  

I really like to make Bee cards.  So for my card today I am using part of the Buzzy Bee Honey digital stamp from Polkadoodles.  


For my card I printed off the girl image and colored it with my copic markers.  I then cut the image out with my Scan n cut machine.  I had this beautiful bee paper by Echo Park called Bee Happy that I used for the card.  I cut out a cross stitch hexagon for the sentiment which is from Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps.  I wrapped a few times with twine around the center of the card and added a little bee charm.

So fun to create this fun birthday card.  Be sure and check out all the fun things they have on the Polkadoodles site.
