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.

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.

Stamping Sunday blog hop

Hi! Thanks for hopping by! I am very flattered to have been asked to be a guest on this edition of the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop!

The theme for this  week is to showcase the Autumn holiday catalogue designer series papers in ways that feature them in year long projects.  The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is one of my favourites in the holiday catalogue. Not only does it have beautiful autumn imagery but the reverse side of the papers has lovely watercolour and graphic designs.

My card and 3D project for today's  Stamping Sunday  blog hop uses one of the watercolor style pages as the feature background. I combined the Painted Autumn designer series paper with the Lemon Zest stamp and punch bundle to make this summery citrus card and treat bag duo, perfect for some citrus candies or a fragrant lemon-lime candle.

Both the card and the treat bag have clear heat embossed lemon-lime twist limes and feature the glitter enamel dots for extra shimmer. The lemon limes punch out perfectly with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  You may also spot another holiday catalogue goodie on this card. the edge of the DSP was cut using one of the NEW card front builder dies.

The treat bag was made using the gift bag punch board and a 4" x 10" piece of DSP. The "for you" was die cut using one of the mini treat bag thinlits dies and is cut out of another of the watercolour Painter Autumn DSP sheets.
