White Christmas?

CC500I had a little time before heading over to school today so I thought I’d check out the color challenge on SCS.  Since today is their 500th challenge (WOW!!) I just HAD to play along.  They have 4 different color combo – one for each season and the fall one caught my eye.

I had the White Christmas set ‘on top of my desk’ for another project I’m working on and then I saw the technique challenge on SCS was to use a pencil eraser…so you put the two together and viola…you have a fall tree!

Here’s the details –

  • Crushed Curry – 3 1/2 x 11 folded, run through the On Pointe Embossing Folded
  • Bermuda Bay star print (Motley Monsters dsp) – 1 x 4 1/4, cut into a banner.
  • Cajun Craze – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to banner then add to card front.
  • Very Vanilla – 1 5/8 x 4 3/8 us the bottom side of the banner framelit to cut into a point.
  • Stamp single tree using using StazOn Jet Black.  I used the Project Life Journaling pen to extend the ‘ground’ to the end of the flag.
  • Color stem using Baked Brown Sugar and use pencil eraser to add ‘leaves’ in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Bermuda Bay
  • Wrap Baked Brown Sugar Twine around top, add dimensionals to flaf and add to card front.
  • Tie knot in piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ taffeta ribbon, add to Gold Basic Button and add button to flag using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Cajun Craze.

I think this turn out SOOOOO cool and another use for the White Christmas set!

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!
