Christmas Cardapalooza Day 10

I saved my favorite for last... No, actually I just uploaded them in the order they were on my hard drive. This beauty features To You & Yours again. The colors are Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, and Shimmery White. The designer paper is from the Ski Slope pack. We added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the rooftop with a two way glue pen.

Well, that is the last of them. I hope you enjoyed them and if you didn't already have a design picked out for your Christmas cards this year, maybe they inspired you.

Christmas Cardapalooza Day 7

For this card we used a snow flake from Snow Burst to make a wreath. The colors are Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke and Kraft. The direct to paper technique was used on the card base for texture and along the edges of the main image.
Happy Turkey Day! Gobble Gobble!!!

Christmas Cardapalooza Day 6

I cased myself for this one. Just switched it up a little. Snow Swirled is the stamp set. Colors this time are Old Olive, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla. The designer paper is from the Ski Slope pack. We added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter with a 2-way glue pen, but it is kind of hard to see here.

I wasn't fibbing!

I really do have lots to show, but I was going to post and then wanted more love on my funky flower so I thought I would let it sit another day or so and then I got sidetracked. So now back to our regularily scheduled programming....

This was a make n take at the crop and stamp I went to a few weeks ago. Everyone loved it.

This was my other make n take. Isn't it cute. They liked this one too!

Funky Flower

I made this card using a flower stamp from The Rubber Cafe. I believe it is called Lace Flower. I can't find it on the site at this moment because they are still in the process of loading all of their stamps to the redesigned site.

I got to try out my new copics on it. I think I still need some work, but they are fabulous markers. On the flower inside the flower I added some sparkle with the Atyou Spica Clear Glitter pen.

I was Sworn to Secrecy

I participated in a swap hostessed by Jami Sibley. She is like a famous stamper and known for being a swap nazi and all these famous stampers participate in her swaps. My pal Crystal has done some of her swaps and always gets fabulous stuff so when Crystal told me there were some openings for the current swap I jumped right in. I think I followed all the rules and got them in on time so hopefully I will get asked to play again. Hee hee! You can't upload your swaps to your blog or SCS until everyone starts receiving them back so that is why I was sworn to secrecy.

This card wasn't anything totally earth shattering, but I think it turned out nice. Next time, if there is a next time, I'll have to try and come up with something more fabulous cause I think mine is kind of plain compared to the others I am seeing. I did emboss the little birdie up there, cut him out and put him on a dimensional.

We had to decorate the inside of the cards too so here is the inside of mine.

I don't have my cards back yet, but I bet they will come today or tomorrow.

I was busy prepping for a stamp and scrap thing last week and now that it is over I have some stuff to show. So look for more posts soon!
