Paper Players 215

It isn't often that I make anything resembling Halloween but the images from the Holiday Home stamp set were perfect for the Paper Players sketch challenge.  Funny thing is, it's very similar to the design Sandy Mathias did and that was not intentional on my part.  I didn't see hers until after I had mine all done.  One of the things I purposefully do when I enter a challenge, is not look at the projects from the design team until after I have mine done. Interesting how we can see the same thing in a sketch and come up with a slightly different look.

Stamp Set:  Holiday Home; Inks:  Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie; Card Stock:  Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  1" Square Punch, Petite Curly Label Punch, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer

CAS(E) this Sketch 94 and ColourQ 260

Ever have one of those days when you know what you should be doing but you are avoiding and doing what you want to do?  Well, that's my day for you.  I have a mile long list of things I need to do and here I am making cards.  Maybe that is the beauty of retirement.  You make your list, then ignore it to have some fun.  At least there is nothing earth shattering on my list.  One of the things I've found about making lists, if you don't get it done today put it at the top of tomorrow's list.  You'd be surprised at how quickly you do get all things done.  Now on to the card I made for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge and the ColourQ challenge.

Stamp Sets:  Four You, Work of Art; Inks:  Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango; Card Stock:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Star Jewels (Doodlebug Design), SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' Trimmer
All Stampin' Up!® Product unless otherwise noted.

Sunday Christmas Card Challenges #44

It's an 'anything goes' challenge for us this week at Sunday Christmas Card Challenges.  You get to choose the design and the colors.  I chose a clean and simple (CAS) design for this one.  I also used one of my favorite techniques.  I attached my squares of paper, stamped the sentiment, then used an embossing folder to dot up the whole layer.  I used one of my favorite retired stamp sets for the sentiment.

Stamp Set:  Heard from the Heart (retired); Ink:  Cherry Cobbler; Card Stock:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Trim the Tree; Accessories & Tools:  1" Square Punch, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

You can find the details for the Sunday Christmas Card Challenges HERE.  We do hope you will join in and share your projects with us.
