Christmas Cheer – Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenge #005

My Christmas Cheer card is part of this week’s inspire.create.  sketch challenge:

inspire. create challenge #005

With the holiday’s approaching I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card and opted to go with non-traditional colours. I really wanted to play with my Stampin Blends markers so I chose colours based on those and opted for Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake.

I used the Merry Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cafe Framelits for the cup and sentiments and coloured the cup and lid in with the Stampin Blend alcohol Markers. “A CUP OF” and “CHEER” are silver heat embossed.

The card  is 4.25″ x 4.25″ and opens in the middle. The lid of the cup is positioned so that it helps hold the card closed as the tip of the silver metallic snowflake tucks underneath. The inside sentiment is from the Every Good Wish stamp set.

Happy First Birthday – Inspire. Create. Stamping Challenge #004

This week’s inspire. create. challenge #004 is a colour challenge. My Happy First Birthday card was inspired by my youngest niece. Her birthday was this week and I wanted a bright and celebratory card.

For this Happy First Birthday card I used an aqua painter to flick ink on to my front layer then added more depth using the soft sky ribbon, flirty flamingo striped baker’s twine, the starburst punch, leaf punch, stitched shape framelits, and Large Numbers framelits. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the In The City hostess exclusive stamp set.
