Christmas in July

 
Hi! I hope your week is off to a good start.
 
I'd like to share with you the card I made for the Christmas Challenge
 
 
 
This is their first Christmas Challenge
 and as you can see, the code word is TREE,
so here's what I came up with:
 
 
I used these supplies
I cut the tree die out of green cardstock and the stuck them down on
the front of a white card base.....didn't like it ...so I cut out around the tree shape.
The edges looked strange being white so I ran around the side edges
with a green marker...much better. But I still didn't feel it looked finished,
so I added a tree silhouette (just traced the die shape ) out of darker green cardstock
and added it underneath.
Now I liked it...almost!
It just looked blah...so I added bling!
You'd laugh if you knew how old these beads were...but hey.
we have to use our stash once and awhile...right?
 
I  used Glossy Accents  on the green parts of the tree to adhere the beads.
The first couple of sections ( I started at the top) were really easy and I found
myself lining up the beads in rows...not a great idea!
By the time I got to the bottom section , I was wishing that I had just dumped
the beads and let them stay where they landed!
All that was left was to stamp the greeting and this card was done!
Thanks for Looking.
 
'till next time,
Doni

however...this is more fun! :)

Check out Less is More....the challenge for this week is " Life's a Beach!"
 
Here's my entry:

A very quick and easy card.

Chevrons

 
Please click  Here  to see this on my blog...I promise to get the hang of this sooner or later!!

 
Its time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS....
and this time our hostess is Deepti and she has chosen the
code word " Chevron".
 
Our sponsor for this challenge is Sweet Pea Stamps and the prize they are
 offering is 4 digis from the store!  Woot! Awesome prize...hope you can play along!
 
 
I am so into big bright bold colors right now...
so here's how my card turned out:
 
I drew and cut out  my own chevrons....which wasn't hard to do at all.
Then I used the coordinating Sending & Wishing stamp and die set
from Simon Says Stamp. You can find it HERE.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
Take time to have some fun today!

pink flowers

 
Hi! Welcome to my blog.
 
Today I'm playing along with a challenge blog called Happy Little Stampers.
 
 
Here's the card I made using a great stamp set from Create a Smile called Botanical Love.
 
 
Here's the supplies I used:
I started out by using the Memory Box
stitched rectangle die to cut the white  panel. Then, because I wanted the same stitched look, I
used the stitched hillside borders die from Lawn Fawn to cut the vertical curve line. I know it cut the front panel into two pieces, but they were easy to put back together with a little tape on the back.
 
Now comes the stamping part...I stamped the flowers on the front and colored them with copic markers.
Here's what I did on the inside:
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Color Throwdown

 
While working with these colors for this weeks challenge at color throwdown I kept coming up

Here's the card I came up with:
 
 
I used a great stamp set from Create a smile called Jungle Fever.
You can find it HERE.
 
Love these colors...especially the lime green....and it's not halloweeny looking!
So it's a win - win!
 
Thanks for stopping by .
