Bright & Beautiful

TSSC341Can you believe it?  It’s another Monday already.  And you all know that when it is another Monday that means it is time for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!

I just love those sketches where as soon as you see it, it sort of just designs itself in your mind.  Yep…this was one of those.  What I like about this card is that overall it is a pretty simple card (and nice and flat for mailing!) Yet it’s all sparkly and shiny for the Christmas season!

Here’s the details –

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 x 4 1/4.  Stamp greeting using Versamark and gold emboss.
  • Layer onto Gold Foil – 3 1/8 x 4 3/8.  NOTE:  I cut out a 1/2″ frame all around.  It saves the paper and makes it easier to attach the Very Vanilla panel.
  • Add panel to card base.
  • Wrap piece of Gold Satin 7/8″ ribbon (secure in front – star will hide it)
  • Add Gold Sequins
  • Stamp Star (smaller one) using Versamark on Very Vanilla and cut out using Star Framelit.  Add to card front using dimensionals to finish it off.

TSSC341I hope that when you see this sketch you will be inspired to join us!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

CCMC328I just love Thursdays and the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

This was one of those cards where I starts out with one idea in mind and the more I worked on it, the more it changed.  Then when I was done it just need a little something more and I had this snowflake ‘sitting on top of my desk’ so it finished things off perfectly!

Here’s the details –

  • Lost Lagoon – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Smoky Slate – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.  Randomly stamp small star using Smoky Slates
  • Layer onto Cherry Cobbler – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
  • Whisper White – 2 x 4 1/4, punch each end using Scallop Tag Topper
  • Stamp greeting using Lost Lagoon and Cherry Cobbler markers
  • Add pieces of Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon to each end of tag, and add using dimensionals (ends of ribbon are wrapped around to back of panel and secured)
  • Add some small Basic Rhinestones to the snowflakes
  • Cut out large snowflake using the Snowflake Thinlits set from Silver Foil and add using dimensionals.
