Welcome Christmas

This card has a story to it! Sunday morning I woke up and looked at the challenge on Sparkle Creations Weekly Christmas Challenge Blog and saw that this week's challenge is no colouring! 

I immediately thought of this stamp that I had noticed when I was looking through our stash of stamps for a different project. I thought it would be the perfect stamp. 

I finished the card before my mom got out of bed and she was amazed with what I came up with. (My dad thought it was my moms!) I was so excited that they loved it that much. 

This also takes care of one of the things on my bucket list and that was to make a card like my moms. Now I have done one of the things on my bucket list! THANK YOU SPARKLE!

I did not use as much as I have with other cards but this is what I used: White Prismatic Bazzill, Black Prismatic Bazzill, White Karen Foster floss and all the stamps used were from Stampin' Up.

Challenge Number Three!

Got Mistletoe? Christmas Card

This is my second card challenge!

I used patterned paper from the Imaginisce: Cottage Christmas 6 x 6 paper pack and Barkley Bazzill. 

For the stamps I used the Kraftin' Kimmie mistletoe mice, Inkadinkado "Got Mistletoe" and Stampendous "Merry Kissmas". 

The circles for my mice are nestabilities, the circles for Merry Kissmas are the 1 3/8" and 1 1/2" EK Success punches, for the squares I used the 1 1/4" EK Success punch. 

The green Stamping Bella bling went perfectly. Last but certainly not least my Copic Markers: YG07, G94, R27, C00 & RV000.

I am participating in Sparkle's Weekly Christmas Card Challenges & this week's challenge was a sketch.

☺ This was another great card to make and I hade fun making it! ☺

My First Card Challenge!

This is my first challenge! 

The challenge is to emboss, so I made this card using the SEI Christmas Mint ~ Mocamint paper, brown cardstock, black Memento ink for the CTMH "Winter's Magic" Stamp, Early Espresso ink for the Merry Christmas Stamp, brown pearls, and of course for the embossing template I used the the Sizzix Snowflake Template.

This was a fun card that I would not normally do without that challenge.

I have entered this card on Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge Blog.
