Happy Holidays

I finally got some time to make a card!  This is for two SCS challenges - CAS300 to use wildlife on your card and for TLC509 - layered die cuts.  This is a case of Maureen Merritt's card.  I have had this stamp set from WPlus9 for a while and couldn't wait to get some time to use it to case Maureen's card!  I cut the deer three times and layered the die cuts.

LIM - More Than One Tree

This is my second post for today.  To view my ATCAS challenge post please scroll down.

The Less Is More challenge is to make a card with more than one tree.  I just happened to have out my PaperTrey sets and was planning to create a set of one layer cards so what better incentive than the challenge!  I used a combination of three stamp sets on the first card and just two on the other cards.  I used a white gel pen for highlights on the kraft cards.

ATCAS #52 - Sketch!

Today we celebrate ATCAS 2nd birthday!  Thanks to Kylie for pulling this fabulous challenge and team together!  I love being part of it!  For our celebration Karen, our hostess, has a sketch for us:

Our sponsor for this challenge:

I used this image from Simon Says Stamp and paper pieced the cat and the box.  I sprinkled a lot of sequins to make it look like they came out of the box when the kitty jumped in.  I colored the kitty with Copic markers and the patterned papers are from My Minds Eye.  The image was then cut with a Labels 2 Nestability and adhered to the card front on top of some scored lines with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

I hope you celebrate with us and I look forward to seeing your creations.  Please check out the rest of the design team's creations at the ATCAS challenge blog!

I am submitting this card to the CASology challenge. The Cue Card is Festive:

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Yikes! I finally got to this STAMPlorations sketch challenge that I wanted to play in! It ends in a few hours so I am making this post short and sweet!  Here is the link to the challenge and the sketch:

As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to use the new to me STAMPlorations set Holiday Hexagons.  I will also enter this into STAMPlorations' monthly challenge which is stamping and layers.  The layer I added is the sentiment.

Peace on Earth

This is for the Online Card Class - Holiday Card Workshop, watercoloring.  I used the emboss resist with watercoloring by heat embossing with white embossing powder the dove and the sentiment.  Then I did a wet on wet color wash with my Twinkling H2O's.  The dove image is from Rubber Cafe and the sentiment is from PaperTrey Wet Paint - Holiday set.
