Good tidings to you and Yours

Hi friends. I've got another Christmas card for you today. Let me tell you a bit about how I put my card together. 

First, I applied some embossing paste onto my card front using a fun stencil. After that was dry, I then sponged some Seedless Preserves Distress Ink onto my card front. After that, I went in with Chipped Sapphire around the edges to darken them up a bit. Don't you just love these two inks together?  I know I do and I am anxious to play around some more using them.

I then added my hills, one of them stamped with the sentiment. My silhouette image was then die cut and added. Everything was mounted onto my card base. The star in the upper right corner was a last minute addition as I thought the sky needed just a bit of something.

Thanks so much for your visit.

Penguin Fun for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

TGIF! And it's my last day of work before vacation so a double TGIF. Before we get down to business today, I'm happy to have Sharyn Polesel  from My Crafty Place as my newest follower. Sharyn has some gorgeous cards on her blog.

It's time for a new anything goes card challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge. There's a great sponsor this week. Click here to link up your cards.

My card today features the super adorable Penguin Fun stamp set and matching dies from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I also used the Stitched Border Trio die set to make my hills.  I just love these adorable penguins.

For my sky panel, I used a stencil and some embossing paste. I then gave some of the snow a bit of clear Wink of Stella. The penguin's body also got some Wink of Stella.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a most wonderful day. Hugs!

Sending many Thanks -- Inspired by a Football Uniform

I was watching football earlier this season and was immediately inspired by the football uniforms of the Washington State Cougars. I loved the various shades of grey with maroon and knew I had to make a card using that color combination.


I started by die cutting my cutting plate from some light grey card stock. I then die cut it two times more, once with the maroon and once with the dark grey. I filled in some of the spaces and left others blank. And I was left with lots more pieces that I can use on other cards.

Thanks for visiting.

Christmas Card Challenge #51 -- Color Challenge

I'm happy to have Shirley-Anne from Stamping for Joy as a new follower to my blog. Her card styles range from cute to vintage. I envy those who can make cards with a vintage feel to them -- not my strong suit at all.

There's an awesome color challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges this week. I just love red and aqua together.  My card is 4.25 x 4.25.  

I used some patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. I love the look of it and how it mimics falling snow. 

Thanks for visiting.
