Die Cut Dreams challenge #16 was to use ribbons and trims.
Sparkle Creations challenge was to create a Christmas card.
The image that I used is from Simply Inger. It is called "waiting for Santa to come". It reminds me so much of my daughter. I can just picture her standing at the window waiting to see if she can see Santa arrive.
The Card Patterns challenge was to use the following sketch:
The Inktegrity challenge. The challenge was to use an Inktegrity image, mix in sprinkles & stir in dots.
The Paper Play challenge was to use spots.
The Creative Card crew challenge was "all that sparkles".
The candy corn image below is available as a free download right now on the Inketgrity blog. I colored it with LePlume markers. (I didn't notice that I had colored the candy corn wrong until I was adding the image onto my card.) Then I added frosted lace stickles to the image. I dry embossed the orange paper to achieve the spots and added a piece of yellow ribbon to soften the line between the black and the orange paper. I used a Studio G stamp for the sentiment.
Here is my finished card:
...from Pamela. I won this by taking part in the Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop this past weekend. Pamela was giving away 4 candies. For each candy you had to do something different. I won this one by visiting each blog and finding the answers to 5 questions that she had asked about the other members of the DT. Then email her the answers. I can't wait to use these great stamps from Unity Stamp Company. The best part is I was looking through my stamps the other day and wishing that I had more butterfly stamps to use on cards.
Thanks again Pamela!

Use 3 embellishments, 2 papers, and 1 image
So here is the card that I made:
I wanted to keep this card simple with just the basics on it. My two paper choices are the stripped paper (not sure what product line it is from. It was a piece of paper I had in my scrap bin. Just big enough to use on this card). The other paper was simply a piece of pink cardstock. I added a hot pink ribbon to soften the line between the white card and the stripped paper. My image is from a Disney Princess clear stamp kit. And I finished it off with 3 green gems at the bottom of the page. Just a simple card, but the 3 gems just seemed to finish it out perfectly.

The other challenge was the All Sorts Challenge week 19. The challenge was to create a project using snowflakes. When I saw this challenge I knew that I just had to do it because like Kirsten, I too love snowflakes. And of course in combining these two challenges I was able to get one more Christmas card created. Since I have been participating in these challenges I have found myself making alot of Christmas cards and usually I'm trying to rush at the last minute to get them all done to send out.
So here's my finished card:
The stamp that I used is a Studio G stamp. The paper is from the Die Cuts With a View spring mat stack and the winter mat stack. I punched the snowflakes out of white cardstock and added blue gems to finish off the look.
The stamps that I used are:
Snowman: Inkadinkado ~ Flourish: Scrappy Cat ~ Sentiment: Inkadinkado
The paper I used is from the Die Cuts With a View spring cardstock.
To get the lace look I used a Martha Stewart lace border punch.
I punched a snowflake out of white cardstock and added a blue gem to it to finish off the card.

The color combination that I chose was a simple blue and white. I wanted to give my card a Wintery feel. The stamp I used to make this card is a Disney Cinderella stamp. The snowflakes are made with a EK Success snowflake punch. Then I added a blue jewel to the center of each snowflake.
Here's my finished card.....

I used Fiskars Baby Clear Stamps (pictured below) as the image and sentiment on my cards.
In order to achieve the soft lacy look at the bottom of the card, I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch. (pictured below)
I wanted to keep the thank you cards simple. As you can see below I used just 3 colors. Pink, white and black. Here is my finished card.
For the Flutter By Wednesday challenge on Danni's Dreams the challenge was to create a card using the color pink and to use either a butterfly or a fairy as the image. So I decided to use a stamp that I had gotten a while ago but I had never used, Tinkerbell. I added cotton candy pink stickles to give a sparkly effect to the card.

And I got my color scheme from Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog which was chocolate & orange.
Here's the card I came up with:
The stamp that I used is a Studio G Series 36 stamp. I colored it in with Leplume Markers.
My color scheme was from the Cupcake Craft Challenge. The challenge this week was to do a card using the color scheme red, white & blue. Finally for the theme of my card I chose to use this weeks challenge of "something for the boys" from All Sorts Challenge Blog.
Here's my card:

The stamp that I used was just a simple teddy bear stamp. I'm not sure which company made the stamp as there is nothing on the stamp to say and I bought it several years ago. After stamping I decided to cut out around the bears and then paste onto the cream colored oval. Instead of just stamping onto the oval. It is hard to tell, but the teddy bears are colored in brown and tan. The Joy stamp used is a Studio G stamp. The ribbon at the bottom is actually a thin piece of the stripped paper that I used at the top of the card.

This next card I made for a friend at church who happens to have the same birthday as me. I'm not sure what company the stamp is from. As the stamp wasn't marked and I purchased it several years ago. It's hard to tell but the bears are colored in light brown and tan.
