Merry and Bright PP374

December 10, 2017

It's Sunday and time for our final challenge of 2017 at the The Paper Players!

Today is Deanne's  (Three Trees Paper Creations)  last week as a Guest Designer.  She has been such a wonderful part of our team for the past year.  I will truly miss her work, but I know she will join us in the gallery when she can.  Thank you, DeAnne for being such an inspiration to all of us!!! 

I am the hostess this week and I have a bold, vibrant color palette for all of you!  I needed more Christmas cards, but this color combo has so much potential.  I can't wait to see where your imagination takes you!  Have fun!







My card is created on a Garden Green card base.  I added a panel of Lemon Lime Twist.  The top white panel is trimmed with a stitched border.  I added the sentiment in black.  The three bows are stamped in Melon Mambo and Powder Pink inks.  The stamp set Holiday Bows is from The Ton.  I cut them out with the matching dies.  I added Wink of Stella and clear sparkling sequins for lots of shine.

Dashing Through the Snow--Sketch Saturday #493

December 9, 2017

It's time for a new challenge at Sketch Saturday!





Our sponsor this week is Star Stampz.  The winner will receive 3 digi stamps of their choice from their store.  




I love this sketch and all the ways I thought to use it! 
I love this little car from Avery Elle!  It makes me smile!  The stamp set is called Dashing.  I colored it with Copic Markers and added some rhinestones to the little tree.  I fussy cut the image.  The background paper was perfect for my sentiment!  The inside sentiment is "Laughing All The Way"!  Hope you are having fun getting ready for Christmas!    




 Hope you will join us this week!

 Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!

My card is created on a white card base.  I layered green and red card stock behind my snowflake DSP.  A green rectangle was added behind my main image and a little blue border was cut to add more interest.   The little girl is stamped using the Your Next Stamp Ellis Loves Lattes and colored with Copic Markers.  
A few vellum snowflakes and enamel dots were added for fun! 

Nothing better than a warm cup of coffee, cocoa or tea on a cold day!
