Inspired by all the little Things 34

Hey friends, thanks for visiting my blog today to see Inspired by all the little things, challenge 34. 
This week we have a great holiday photo inspiration for you. 

For my card I made a chalkboard style focal point. I used a Stampin Up stamp embossed in white on black card stock and sponged with white ink. I cut the square with SB dies. 

I used some Simon says Stamp ornament dies to die cut the ornaments and tied them with twine. Gold sequins were added for a bit of sparkle.

Joyce Mehrberg is our guest this week and the design team has made some beautiful cards so come visit and link up a card too!
Take care!

Inspired by all the little Things 33

Hello, Hello! How are you this week? You need to come join us for Inspired by all the little Things #33. We've got fun trees for you to interpret any way you wish! 
I tried a few things with this Hero Arts stamp set that didn't work out. I stamped the trees in the greens and pinks like the inspiration photo but wasn't feeling it so I heat embossed a single tree is white powder and decorated it with pearls and gems. 

I die cut it with SB Classic ovals and scalloped ovals and set it on my prepared card base. The little tag is from Avery Elle here. I was going to go with softer pinks and greens for the patterned paper but this paper just popped. I'll have to add the name of it later, my mind is blank! Hahaha.

Merry Monday 222

Hey there Friends! Because I love the Merry Monday Christmas challenge and played with them for years, I had to make a card last night for Challenge #222

The graphic photo is so cute and uses gray, red and white. I had pulled out this older Imaginese mitten stamp set last week so that I could use it sometime during the holiday season. I heat embossed it with white powder on red card stock and added a baker's twine string. 

I used an MFT Sketch #306 which can be found here. I stamped SSS snowflakes in SU gray ink in a piece of SSS card stock (might be Fog) and added PPP Sparkling clear sequins to the centers.

 I dry embossed a white panel of white CS with a swirl embossing folder and layered a piece of red CS with a Hero Arts sentiment.

I should have used my MISTI to stamp the snowflakes to get a better impression. Oh well! 

Thanks for visiting today.

Inspired by all the little Things #32

Hey Friends, Welcome to another week at Inspired by all the little Things! I love the skis on the inspiration photo but went with focusing on the white, pine cones and greenery. 

I started with Whimsy stamps Pine cone and greenery die. I cut the pine cone out of kraft card stock and inked it with distress inks. I placed it in the corner of a Pretty Pink Posh scalloped frame die cut from gold foil card stock. A Hero Arts sentiment was inked with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

 Black and white gingham ribbon and a few clear sequins finish it off. 

I know I can't be the only one who still needs to make Holiday cards, LOL, so come play with us this week! And check out the design team and our guest Rosemary's cards too.

Thanks for visiting.

Inspired by all the little Things #31

Hi Friends! I'm so happy to be moving on to Christmas/Holiday related photo inspirations with Inspired by all the little Things. This week we have such a pretty image, love the bird, music notes and poinsettia. 

I started with Sweet and Sassy's Peace of God set for the bird. I think he's a blue jay but I made him into a chickadee. :) 

Using Mojo Monday 471 sketch, I chose Bo Bunny music notes paper, some birch paper from another pad  and some red and black card stock to compose the layout. The poinsettia and scalloped circle dies are Spellbinders and the banner is MFT. I didn't get real technical when Copic coloring the image, just trying to get it done! 

This week we have the talented LeeAnn Pugliese joining us as well as our awesome design team so come play with us!
