My Log Cabin Card

     I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I know I did!! I made this card for Gina's spotlight sketch challenge and because I needed to practice on doing some male cards. I don't know about you, but these are the hardest ones for me to do. I had seen this log cabin card long ago and wanted to try it and finally got around to doing it. I used Pure Luxury CS in asparagus and chocolate and the DP is from the DCWV matstack (the christmas combo). The punch is a Martha Stewart that I picked up on clearance at michaels and the embossing folder is called distressed stripes. I sponged the sky and stamped the tree 4 times randomly. I cut the image and placed it to look like you are looking out the window of the cabin. I added stickles to the trees to look like snow. I added the birthday sentiment. The stamps are from Gina K Designs Winter Wonderland Stamp TV kit and  Snow Much Fun stamp set. I will post some christmas tags later this week.  Thanks for visiting my blog!!

Happy Winter

Happy Tuesday everyone! I made today's card for Gina k designs spotlight sketch challenge, however, I didnt check my dates and its too late to enter. Oh well I still had fun making it! I used Pure Luxury In the Navy cardstock and my DP is from the DCWV holiday collection winter matstack. I stamped my greeting with vivid ink (inky blue) and stamped the snowflakes randomly around the greeting. I added small navy bling to the center of the snowflakes. I then stamped my mittens and cut them out. I added some ribbon  to them and some dark blue stickles. The stamps I used are from Gina K designs Winter Wonderland Stamp TV kit and Winter mittens stamp set. Thanks for visiting my blog today!!

Happy Holidays

This is the first post I have done in quite a while. Its been a really busy fall, but now Christmas time is here and I am ready to do some christmas cardmaking. I made this card for two challenges, the first one is the color spotlight challenge over at Stamp TV. Gina challenged us to make a card using green apple, lipstick red, and white. These were great xmas colors. The other challenge i did was for Cardpatterns. I used their sketch for this card. It was an awesome sketch. I used Gina k Designs stamps and cardstock. I colored my wreath stamp with memento markers and then stamped the image. I used brilliance moonlight white ink for the sentiment and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I used nestabilities lacey circles. The ribbon and flowers are from my stash. I am having a minor surgery this week and am hoping to spend the 10 day recovery in my card room. So hopefully I will have some more blog posts this week. Hope you have a great weekend and Happy Thanksgiving!!
