Happy Sunday!  I had a chance to get crafty today!  Our house is under contract....finally!  Hopefully I can start crafting more.  Keeping the whole house clean 24/7 while working has been daunting to say the least.  I did not craft much at all because I would have a mess to clean up.  I use ALL of my stuff when I craft so it seems.  

I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's Anniversary Celebration Challenges!  I create five cards today!  Whew!





For this card, I used PTI Masculine Motifs for the sailboat.  I masked a circle image and softly sponged in blue to mimic the Out to Sea set.  The tiny dots image comes from Christmas Faith set.  I am also using the sketch for this week's CAS(E)this Sketch Challenge.  
                   







I used Daydreamer stamp set for this card.  I die cut a rectangle and softly sponged in a sky. I used this set to replicate the looks of the flower images.


                                      Card post here!






For this card, I used the Delightful Doilies stamp set to create a wreathe.  I added the flower from Graceful Greetings II set.  I mixed and layered some fun pattern papers. For the sentiment I used It's the Thought stamp set and dies.




I used the Newsprint for this card.  I added images from Flower Favorites stamped directly to the stamp newsprint image.  I rocked and rolled the edges a bit for some added dimension.  I use a sentiment from Sentiment Splits to work with the Curve Vertical die.


I used Hello Sunshine for this card.  I added some colors using the smooshing technique as well as some splatters.  


Which card is your favorite? Why?

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!






The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!






For my card I started with some of this fun XOXO PTI pattern paper from the Black and White All Over paper pad.  I die cut it with the top portion of PTI Sentiment Splits angle vertical die.  I added a strip of glittered gold card stock to play off of the gold glittery cake in the inspiration photo.  I added a flower in red using a retired PTI stamp set.  I added a sentiment from PTI Tropics stamp set.  I embellished with a few clear sequins.  I finished with some wink of stella that I brushed on the flower for some added sparkle.

Happy New Year!  We're back!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!






The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!




For my card I decided to play off of the wonderful colors and touches of sparkle.  I started with some stampers select white cardstock.  I stamped the the stacked presents image from PTI Gifts of the Season using Tropical Teal and Hawaiian Shores ink. I then die cut using coordinating die.




Next, I  used another piece of stampers select white and stamped star clusters using the image from  Birthday Cheer stamp set.  I added a sentiment from Tropics stamp set.  I added some foam tape to the bottom of the present image.  I added a few clear gems to some of the bows.  I added some wink of stella on a few gifts for added sparkle.   I finished with a few clear sequins.

Challenge deadline: Thursday, January 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!



For my card I am using Verve's Beyond Measure stamp set.  I love the whimsical look of the inspiration photo.  I decided to combine a mixture of pattern papers that I had in my stash to play off the different colors of stocking and bedding.  I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment onto a piece of vellum.  



I felt like the vellum needed a little something so I die cut another piece and wrapped some gold threading around.   I thought the sentiment on vellum added to the white stockings with touches of detail.  I added a red and white bow.  I finished my card with some Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  I am playing along with this week's MOJOMonday Sketch!
