Can you handle the pressure challenge - Things with wings

This card was made for two challenges: the My Time to Craft Christmas challenge, which was to use a hymn or song as your theme, and the Can You Handle the Pressure challenge, which was to use something with wings along with some embossing,  This meets both criteria and it puts me ahead on my Christmas card making. I certainly appreciate that!! 

Here's where the details for the challenges can be found:

I used a stamp set from Impression Obsessions that I stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I fussy cut the images and sentiment out. My background was done on heavy white paper using a 3_D embossing folder from Sizzix. 


Christmas Throwdown Challenge

My silver chrome card stock was difficult to photograph but I used a 3-D embossing folder from Sizzix for the card base of this Christmas card that I am entering in the Christmas Throwdown challenge this week.I used a 3 -d embossing folder/die for the poinsettia, and die cut the leaves. The sentiment is from Unity. I used a silver metallic pen to make the center of the poinsettia. 


Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge #600

I am entering this card in the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge (to use washi tape).  I used some design paper mounted onto kraft cardstock, added the bufffalo print washi stripe and then some die cut deer. I stamped the peace in versafine Clair black ink and added the holly embellishment.  You can find the details of these two challenges here:


TGIF374 Tone on Tone

This bird stamp is from an old forgotten cling set that has hardly been used. I don't even remember the name of the company who made it. The background stamp on the cardbase is from Impression Obesessions as is the clouds in the background behind the birds. The sentiment is from Stampendous. I used broken china distress oxide ink for the background and the image. I used Versafine Clair black ink for the sentiment. I used some strips of design papers for the strips and some enamel dots foe embellishments.

Just Add Ink 609 Flowers

I used an old stamp that I have never used before for the background using Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink.  The stamp set is so old I don't even remember the source for it. The rose on the doily is from My Sentiments Exactly as is the sentiment. I added a doily and the image was colored with Copic markers. The rose and sentiment were stamped with Versafine Clair black ink. The details for this challenge and the linky can be found here:

As you like it - feminine or masculine


I made this very feminine card for my As You Like It challenge card. I love flowers and I love my Unity Angie girls in my stamp collections, so I always find I have more images that would fit the  feminie category  from my collection. These stamps are from Unity, and the embossing folder is a Sizzix 3-D embossing folder that I rubbed pink distressed ink onto. I colored the image with colored pencils.

Fusion Challenge

I used the sketch and the colors from these Fusion challenges this week. The background was done with a Sweet and Sassy background stamped in distress oxide antique linen and then stamped a little offset with versafine clair black ink. It gave it an embossed look. I used these colors from this color chart for the colors of my shells from a Flourish stamp set.
