OOPS!

CASologyI am officially having a bad week at work.  Yes, I do know it is only Tuesday.  Actually I was officially having a bad week at work yesterday.  What can I say…sometimes stuff just happens.

If you are looking for some fun Christmas inspiration though…check out this card here and then this card here.

So anyway…I came home today from work and decided to do something just for fun!  I saw the challenge over at CASology (haven’t done that one for a while) and then the color challenge on SCS.  So when I put the two of them together…this is what I came up with.  I could just see using this card with …sorry inside.

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Stamp larger splatter using So Saffron and the small splatter two times using Pumpkin Pie
  • Use the Alphabet Rotary stamp to do OOPS! in Mossy Meadow
  • Layer onto Diagonal Tangelo Twist striped dsp (Flowerpot dsp) – 1/2 x 5 1/2.
  • Mossy Meadow – 1/8 x 5 1/2 – add to panel
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off

White Christmas

SUO107Oh…how exciting…it’s time for another SUO challenge and this time our theme is Out in the Woods!  This is one of two cards for today so make sure you check out my other card here.  And I have one more card for you that I JUST post…check out this one too!

Well I started thinking about that theme and was looking over my sets and thought the White Christmas set would be PERFECT for it!  I’m using this set (in a similar way) for my Christmas Card class and had the stuff ‘on top of my desk’ so it came together very quickly!  This is one of those ‘it looks soooo much better in real life cards’ (has lots of sparkle on it) and I wish you could see it!

Here’s the details –

  • Soft Sky – 4 1/4 x 8 1/1 folded
  • Whisper White – 2 5/8 x 4 1/4
  • Stamp trees using StazOn Jet Black, mask the bottom and sponge the sky using Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon
  • Stamp greeting using StazOn
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer – TWO piece 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Layer behind the panel and add to card front
  • Stamp snowman using StazOn, color with Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz, and Cantaloupe Crisp marker, cut out and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add Dazzling Details to snow, trees and snowman
  • Add Silver Sequins to finish off

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!
