Festive Flurry

TSSC284Happy Monday everyone!  Before I get started…this is a big day for us on Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013…today is the first of our Preview Projects and guess who is offering it?  ME!!!  Click here to see the very ADORABLE Trio of Holiday Gift Cards I made!  You don’t want to miss it…lots of good stuff!

Today is Monday and it is Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  Mary Jo has a GREAT sketch for you this week and this is what I came up with.

The base of the card is Pool Party and I stamped Merry Christmas in Versamark and embossed in silver.  I cut strips of the a print from the Winter Frost dsp, layered onto Island Indigo then added to the card front  I took another strip of Island Indigo, cut into a banner and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the smallest snowflake in versamark on Pool Party, white embossed and cut with the smallest Festive Flurry Framelit.  I also did another one in the Silver Foil.  I layered these using dimensionals, added a Frosted Finishes Embellishment (also with a dimensional) and added to the card front using dimensionals.  Finally I added some basic rhinestones to finish it off.

TSSC284See…isn’t this just a GREAT sketch?  We’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

CAS241Today for the CAS challenge, we were to CASE one of the CAS alumni.  I had such a tough time deciding but ended up picking this card.  I kept the general layout but changed from a flower to the snowflake then changed the colors.  I also added some more elements to it.

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the largest snowflake in Versamark and embossed with Pool Party embossing powder then the smallest snowflakes in versamark and Silver embossing powder.  This is layered onto Pool Party, wrapped some silver 1/8″ ribbon around it then added to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped Peace on Earth in versamark and Pool Pary embossing powder, punched with the wide oval punch, layered on a silver foil (hard to see on the photo) decorative label punch.  This is layered onto the card front using dimensionals.

TSSC280Oh is there ever a fun and different sketch on the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!  I decided when I saw it to just keep it clean and simple!

The base of the card is Pool Party.  I stamped the greeting from the Calm Christmas set using Versamark and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  I stamped the smallest snowflake from the Festive Flurry set using Versamark on Whisper White and embossed in Silver.  I cut them out using the Festive Flurry Frames and added to the card front using dimensionals.  Finally I added two sizes of Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

TSSC280This was such a fun and easy sketch it is!  We’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!
