Altenew January Inspiration Challenge

With all my Altenew stamps it's about time I entered their Inspiration Challenge.  Here's the photo they offered.
And my card.
I just got the Adore You set and stamped several of the smaller flowers in Fossilized Amber DI.  I fussy cut them along with a couple of berries? from Golden Garden.  I arranged them on polka dot paper, popping some of them up, and added a sentiment from PTI embossed in white on Chocolate.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope your week is off to a great start.

Casology #231

Casology gave me another chance to use a NBUS die for their challenge "Forest".
I cut the TH trees two different greens and anchored them with a scrap of gray stamped with a woodgrain.  I know you can't see it but it's there.  The sentiment from PTI is embossed with white.

I'm glad you dropped by.  Have a great week.

Time Out #74

I'd rather be making Spring cards because winter is beginning to get to me but Time Out asked for winter and I obliged.  I also did their optional twist of white on white.
The sentiment from PB is embossed in silver so I hope that doesn't count against the 'white on white' theme but I wanted it to show up.  Michele and I talked about using our background stamps more so I pulled out my MFT burlap and stamped with VersaMark Dazzle ink.  The snowflakes are from a couple of different sets cut in linen vellum.  Brrr.  It's making me cold just looking at it.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend.

Just Us GIrls # 376

I'm hosting the Trend challenge at Just Us Girls this week. I love cards I've seen with all over background stamping and that's what I've chosen for this challenge.
I used Altenew flowers with my Zigs and one of their sentiments white embossed on a black scrap.

There are so many wonderful stamps that you can use for this challenge.  Check out what the design team and our guest designer Shawna Standish have done.  Hopefully they will inspire you to make a card.  If you do, you may be chosen as our Chic of the Week and be eligible for a guest designer spot.

Merry Monday #230

Merry Monday mixed it up and asked for Scandinavian and/or Noel on your Christmas card.  Of course I had to do both.  This will be the card for my son, whom I appropriately named Eric, who embraces his Scandinavian ancestry to the hilt.  His daughters are Anneka and Kjerstin, his dog is Thor and previous pets were named Signy, Freya and Loki.  Fortunately he married a girl with Swedish ancestry too.
I colored my NBUS Santa with Zigs to look like Tomte and put him on a warm embossed sweater.  If I had God Jul dies I would have put it on the card but they asked for Noel so it worked out fine.

Thanks for dropping by.
