Merry Monday #211 {Blue,Gold, White/Silver}

Merry Monday is having a challenge before they take the summer off. They are wanting you to create a card using blue, gold, white and or silver.


Here is the card I created for it:

I used Island Indigo, silver cardstock, gold ribbon and stamped my images on white cardstock. I used Island Indigo for the tree and sentiment. I then embossed it with the retired iridescent ice. I wish Stampin' Up would bring it back.

Stamps I used are Snow Swirled-tree and Solemn Stillness- sentiment.

Lovely as a Tree

This is the popular stamp set from Stampin' Up. I watched a video from Stamp and Scrap with Frenchie. She showed how to make a beautiful sunrise. Here is my version of it:



I used So Saffron as the card base, the mat is Pink Pirouette. Whisper white card stock for the stamping of the trees. I used gold embossing powder for the tree bases and the trees themselves are embossed with Fall Splendor. Sorry my pics are dark but in person it is really pretty. The background is what Fenchie showed how to create. The ink I used is So Saffron, Pink Pirouette and Pistachio Pudding. Black memento ink for the Thinking of You (Sincere Salutations stamp set, retired 2005) and a piece of pink ribbon across the top.

June Team Shares

This months team share involved the new Fox Builder. Michelle sent us a punched out fox that we would put together, Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine and a piece of the new dsp A Little Foxy.


Here is what I created with these pieces:


I used pool party for the card base and smoky slate for the center frame and used dimensional's to pop it up and the same for the fox. I used tangelo twist to color some of the fox, a black pen to create the eyes and etc.. I then used smoky slate ink around the frame and added pearls to each of the 4 corners.

On the inside I added a verse and used Happy Birthday from the Butterfly Basics in pool party:


Is anyone singing this song?,,, LOL!!

 I hope you enjoyed this month's team share. Please leave a comment so I know you stopped by:)
