Merry Monday #215 {Pink/Grey or Silver}

Merry Monday challenge this round is inspired by the color combos of pinks, greys or silver.
 
I used Blushing Bride for the card base, I then used the new Stampin Up! Star of Light stamp bundle. I stamped the stars and swoosh in Stampin Up! Silver embossing powder. Then I die cut the star in bright pink glitter cardstock and vellum. I stamped a star from the same stamp set and embossed in silver again. I added a few pink pearls. I love how this turned out and how the camera popped the star, I hope you like it also. Leave me a comment and let me know!!

September Team Shares

Michelle is my team demonstrator leader and she sends us a few elements each month to inspire us to create a card. She sent us 3 elements:
Eskimo from the cookie cutter Christmas, a piece of red ribbon and a 4x5 piece of double sided designers series paper.
 
I used Blush Blossom for the face and Blushing Bride for the cheeks, the clothes with Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar ,Cherry Cobbler & Very Vanilla. 
I then cut the DSP in half and adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, then took a piece of the dsp and cut it in half and used it on the end of the Very Vanilla card and put a piece of the ribbon down the middle.
 I then used the 2nd to the smallest Label die  and popped up the Eskimo, added a wooden snowflake with a pearl in the center, the sentiment is from a retired stamp set (name unknown). Added some Very Vanilla ink with a sponge dauber to the top and bottom of the card for some snowy effect.
 
 
I enjoyed making this card and I hope I have inspired you too!
 
Thanks for stopping by!


Just Us Girls #361-Color Week Challenge

This weeks color challenge is to use Red, Black and Yellow.

Since I am in the mood to make Christmas cards, I searched the internet for some inspirational ideas and this is what I found to create my card.
 
I used Stampin Up's Real Red, Basic Black and Summer Sun cardstock for the card and mats, Embellished Ornaments dies for the ornaments. I used the red foil for the small one, black glitter cardstock for the other ornament and for the center of the ornament I cut from sticky paper and used Stampin Up's Sun Sparkle glitter for the center of the ornament.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

"Just Us Girls" Challenge #360

I have been in the card making mood so I joined a few challenges. Two of the challenges I used red and white in them and with this challenge I stayed with the same color theme.
The Just Us Girls challenge is to use sequins in your project.





Here is my card:

 
I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the base and White Shimmery cardstock for the mat. I used the Star of Light thinlits to cut out the Star base from Real Red foil cardstock and the two smaller stars, Dazzling Diamonds cardstock for the center star and two smaller stars. I stamped the Swoosh from the Star of Light stamp set in versamark that is tinted light blue and used Iridescent Ice (retired) on it and then added some sequins from my stash to the card. I finally stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Cherry Cobbler.
 
I hope you enjoy the card as much as I do, I think by far this stamp set bundle is my all time favorite!

Cherry Cobbler for the card base, Brushed Silver and white for the mats. I then used Versamark ink for the tree (two step called Solemn Stillness-Retired) Emerald Envy embossing powder for tree base and then Real Red embossing powder for the 2nd step of the tree.

I used Emerald Envy ink for the sentiment and again Cherry Cobbler for the stars.

I really liked how the tree stood out and at first I was not sure of the Emerald Envy but have come to love it, especially with the Real Red on top of it.
Don't you just love how it sparkles!!!

This one was a bit challenging, but I came up with a card that I thought fit this color theme. 

I used the Jar of Love stamp set for the jar ( popped up with dimensionals), flowers, sentiment and bugs, some washi tape from one of the paper pumpkins stash, peekaboo peach ribbon for the bow, Emerald Envy for the bugs lights, the greenery, Smokey Slate for the jar, Sahara Sand for the splotches from the Timeless Textures stamp set, flowers in Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral, and all card stock is Very Vanilla. Since a jar needs a handle; I used some wire from stampin up (retired).
I just love this stamp set!
