TSSC294TWO MORE DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!  oh my!!!  And since it is Monday, it is time for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!  I will have to say…it sure is a different sketch this week and I will have to admit…I was stumped!

I sat down to work on the sketch and had some pieces left over from my Christmas card for this year (I’ll be posting that on Christmas day!) and thought if i turned the sketch upside down, changed the size, i could get it to work.

Here’s the details:

  • Whisper White: 3 1/2 x 10 folded (THIS IS NOTECARD SIZE!0
  • Whisper White: 3 1/2 x 4 1/4, run through the Decorative Dots (SAB) embossing folder and add to card front.
  • Add Silver glimmer 1/2 x 3 1/2 to the top and bottom.
  • Stamp loopy tree using Versamark on Whisper White, silver emboss, cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Add silver Glimmer Star to top.
  • Stamp greeting using Versamark on Whisper White, Silver emboss, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals.

TSSC294So let’s see…I turned it upside down, changed the oval to a banner, made the top and bottom panels thinner, made the triangle into a tree.  Yep…exactly the same – lol!!!   Hope you can take a break from all the holiday celebrations and join the fun!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

SUO86CardWelcome to the SUO challenge!  And what a great challenge we have for this time of year…last minute card and gift ideas.  I don’t know about you…but I know I sure could use some last minute ideas…well considering I haven’t even STARTED my Christmas cards yet…EEK!!!

So check out the SUO Design Team to see what they came up with.  I decided to show BOTH a last minute card and matching gift idea.  Honestly…this was a card we did for my World Card Making Day event and since I hadn’t shared it yet and it is a VERY simple card, I decided to use it for the challenge.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Pool Party Snowflake Print – 4 x 5 1/4, add to card front
  • Shimmery White – 2 1/4 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Versamark and Silver Emboss.  Cut out the smallest Festive Flurry framelit.  Round the bottom corners.
  • Add Silver 1/8″ Ribbon to top then add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add Frosted Embellishment to center of cut out snowflake

SUO86FrameI’ve had these little frames sitting around my house FOREVER!!!  I got them at Target and they came 3 in a pack for $2.50.  The inside opening on the frame is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  You really can’t beat that.  I bought them in both white and black and have used them for so many different projects over the years.  It was perfect for a little snowflake frame to go along with the card.  This would not only make a nice Christmas gift but it could be used as a decoration all through the Winter.

Here’s the details:

  • Shimmery White – 4 x 4
  • Pool Party Snowflake print – cut out 2nd to largest snowflake.  Add this panel to the Shimmery White piece using dimensionals.
  • Cut out the 2nd to smallest snowflake from the Silver Glimmer paper.  Add to panel using double dimensionals.
  • Stamp smallest snowflake using Versamark, emboss using Pool Party embossing powder, cut out with the smallest snowflake framelit, add to panel using dimensionals.
  • Add Frosted Embellishment to center of snowflake to finish it off and add panel to frame.

So I hope you enjoyed my last minute projects.  Check out what the rest of the SUO Design Team did for their last minute cards and gifts!

CCMC273Oh…this is another of those that I just WISH you could see this in real life.  The foil paper is just sooooo shiny and I just couldn’t capture that in the photo!  I LOVE the sketch on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge this week and just went to go with white and silver!

This is also the last couple of days for our Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013 Preview Week and the LAST 3 days of our Early Bird Special!  You want to take advantage of that TODAY!!!!

This is really a pretty easy card.  The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took a piece of the foil cut the circle out with a circle framelit, ran it through the Stylish Stripes Embossing folder, then added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting in versamark on Whisper White, silver embossed and added to the card front using dimensionals.  The snowflake is the two smallest, stamped in versamark, silver embossed, cut out with the framelit, layered with dimensionals and added to the card front using dimensionals.  Finally I added a Frosted Finishes Snowflake to the center.

WinterBadgePreview Week IS ALMOST OVER!!!  If you haven’t checked out our very cool preview projects and taken advantage of our two preview projects we offered so far…you want to do that now!  Connie still has her project to share on Saturday!  Connie and I are starting the Early Bird signups for our Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013 but Saturday is the LAST DAY!  It’s all about Christmas and Winter projects!  And we KNOW how you LOVE Christmas!  It’s not too early to start planning those gifts and decorating and we have lots of GREAT ideas to help you!  See more information over on Create with Connie and Mary!
