Window - Tidings of Comfort & Joy

I started with a really fun sketch from Splitcoast. I thought I'd make a window card with Movers & Shapers, but I just ended up using my decorative label punch!

Colors are from Inkspirations - Real Red, Bashful Blue, Kraft, Very Vanilla.

Stampin' Up! supplies: crumb cake patterned paper, scallop edge, blue satin ribbon, circle die, decorative label punch.

Stamp set: Word Play - I used crumb cake, real red and bashful blue to color it.
I even decorated the inside of the card!

Celebrate Color Cupcake

I made this card for today's color challenge on Splitcoast. Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz and Marina Mist.

I used the cupcake punch, boho blossoms punch, tasteful trim die, crimping, embossing and scoring.

I embellished with clear rhinestones and ribbon! The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up! set - Something to Celebrate! The cupcake is popped up on the white square with dimensionals.

It's Snowing

It snowed last night and what a timely challenge on Splitcoast about cold weather!

I decided to use the layout from last week Clean & Simple - Fall-to-Layout 165.

The colors are: Pool Party, Marina Mist and white patterned paper. I added shimmer with glitter glue and rhinestones.

I used GoGo Boots alphabet die, snowflakes die, tasteful trim die and white twine. The stamp set is Snow Swirled.

Christmas chickadee

I made this card for today's layout on Splitcoast.

I got to use some of my new goodies - ribbon, Tasteful Trim die and neutrals patterned paper.

I stamped in soft suede and sponged around it. I stamped another chickadee and cut it out and popped it up.

The ribbon is just looped around and glued together with a button on top.
