WT771 and Mod Squad Challenge

The challenge today for the Ways to Use challenge was to use vellum. I could only come up with this small strip so I embossed a plaid pattern onto it and embossed this reindeer  (both old stamps from Stampin' Up). The bliss is a puffy sticker and the card base is brown cardstock and design paper for the background. I am adding this to the Mod Squad challenge this week to do winter or Christmas, and the Little Red Wagon challenge. 

I loved the red and brown together.

My card for the Unity Challenge

I did this card for the Unity challenge this week. I did a scene card for my CCEE stampers challenge this week too. For the Unity challenge you were to use only Unity stamps. Well, I did not have any Unity background kinds of stamps so I used dies and embossing and torn paper to complete this scene.

My sister, Lynn is a whiz at these scene kinds of cards that she does mostly by using Kitchen Sink multilayered stamps and masking. I am always amazed at hers. I did enjoy making these two cards this week but I had to do it mostly with paper layering and not masking.

I plan to use this card for these challenges also:
The Cut Up Challenge
Daring Cardmakers
Festive Friday Challenge - I made use of embossing (the brick house), tree, and snowflakes (hand drawn falling past the bricks, the girl, and the window.

Hope all of you who visit my blog have a blessed Christmas season, and wishing you a happy 2020!

This completes this 2019 year of challenges for CCEE, with Lynn being our final hostess. After today the CCEE Stampers will be on holiday until January 2 enjoying the season with their families and friends. We thank you for another wonderful year of shared stamping and wish you and yours the very best during this season of joy. Please join us in the new year for more shared stamping fun!

For our last challenge, I am asking that you create a card which has a window. It will then be your choice on whether you want to be peeking IN on Santa or peeking OUT at Santa. I can't wait to look through your window to spy on Santa. Have fun!!

Here is my card for the challenge this week:
