More Stickeroo Christmas Cards

Finally, I'm using the Penny Black Stickeroos that I buy so readily!  My previous card-making stint produced 17, and I have completed 5 of this particular theme.

Mojo Monday -- Red and Silver


I love red and silver, but I guess I love many different color combinations. For this week's Mojo Monday sketch, once again, I chose specialty paper from Echo Park's Dots and Stripes, this one from the Winter Silver Dots pack. The paper is two-sided, with the solid color (dry embossed in a folder) on the reverse of the dots.  A heavy piece of Bazzill metallic silver cardstock was perfect for the PoppyStamps "merry" diecut and banner.  The card base is Slate Gray from SU!.  (I love the silver "thread" from Stampin' Up!)  


Sunday Stamps - Autumn Splendor

This particular Sunday Stamps challenge allowed me to use an old 6x6 pad from Bo Bunny, called Forever Fall Collection.  I die cut a few more maple leaves, embossed them and added them to the multicolored layer.  The diecut sentiments are from Penny Black, all fitting for a Thanksgiving card.

A Flower for a Birthday

Stamping with flowers is an appealing challenge, but for me, choosing which flower stamp to use is the real challenge.  For this month's "The Flower Challenge" occasion theme post, I picked Penny Black's "dotted petals" and an old PSX birthday greeting.  The flower was stamped in black and heat-embosssed; I colored it with SU! markers and a blending pen.  Then I added sparkle to the flower and sentiment with some Stickles Lace.

Freshly Made Sketch 262




I really wanted to do something special/different with Freshly Made Sketch 262 but I wasn't successful at all. Instead, I relied on some pretty washi tape for the band in the sketch, and a large white Prima flower for the circle shape.

Mojo Monday


This Mojo Monday sketch is definitely one I could use for Christmas cards....now to get started on them!  My card features Graphic 45 "Time to Flourish"  paper and an old stamp from Stampers Anonymous.

Less is More in Purple and Gold

Purple is one of my favorite colors...and gold is the frosting!    Less is More #301 is featuring colors this week...the royal colors of purple and gold.  I started with a watercolor background of Ken Oliver's Color Bursts, added leaves punched out of gold circle stickers, and finished with a sentiment from Impression Obsession heat-embossed in detail gold.
