Distressed Snowflakes

I wanted to get this card into Virginia's View Challenge before it closed.  I also wanted to enter this into the CASology challenge - cue word is SNOW.

I clear embossed this snowflake flourish by Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps and then blended a few colors of Distress Inks with an ink blending tool.  This is one of my favorite techniques.

For You

I created this for the SCS CC509 challenge - cherry cobbler, old olive and soft sky using the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:

I stamped the Penny Black flower in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored it with Copic Markers. I used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter brush pen over some of the flower petals.  I used the PaperTrey Tip Tops Die to cut out the flower panel and adhered it with foam tape.  Enamel dots were used for embellishments.  The patterned paper is also from PaperTrey.

Welcome back to a new challenge at Addicted to Clean and Simple (ATCAS) challenge blog!  This week our hostess is Shana and she chose the code word: FAMILY

Our sponsor is:

Please check out what the rest of the design team has created for more inspiration at the ATCAS challenge blog.

I thought this mother penguin with her baby was so cute and represented family.  This image is from Rubber Stampede and I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I used a Cuttlebug frame embossing folder for some texture and definition and then added the gingham bow.

Another Silver Happy Hanukkah Card

Here is another Hanukkah card I made to send out this year.  I brought this glittery paper back from my friend Georgia's house when I went to Nebraska in January.  I will submit this card to CASology for the cue card challenge: SILVER:

I am also submitting this to CAS(E) this Sketch:

and to Just Us Girls:

and to AAA Card Challenge:

The card base is Recollections card stock and I don't know the brand of the glittery papers.  I used PaperTrey dies for the Star of David, the tilted panels and the sentiment banner.  The sentiment is also from PaperTrey.

Silver Happy Hanukkah

The CASology challenge this week was perfect timing for me.  I am finishing up my Hanukkah and Christmas cards and the cue card is SILVER:

This stamp set is from Casual Fridays and I stamped it with silver ink and embossed it with silver embossing powder.  The "flames" were done with gold ink and gold embossing powder.  This was a very quick and easy card to make for multiple card making!
