I did this card for the Mod Squad challenge this week to make a Valentines' Day card.
You can find the details for the challenge here:
I used a Gina Kay stencil and old barn distress oxide ink for the stenciling. I am using some letters from my stash. The adhesive that was on the back would not peel away from the packaging so I had to glue them on. I added a few pink gemstones to accent it. This was a simple but fun card to make.

Today is Punch the Clock Day. Put something time-related on your card (a clock, a watch, a calendar, etc.) If you don't have any of those things, make a birthday card -- that's time-related!

It's Penguin Awareness Day. Put a penguin or two on your card. Fortunately, the most snow I ever see in the winter is on my winter cards, which I really enjoy making. I used a piece of buffalo print as my card's background. I did some torn white paper for the snow on the ground, die cut some trees and added this cute penguin sticker on beside them. I stamped the sentiment that is from Unity. I added some white snow flakes with a white gel pen. For a little sparkle I added silver sequins. On the snow I rubbed some white frost Metallic Lustre onto the snow using my finger to pat it on.
Make sure to check all the cute penguins on display on the other designers cards over on the CCEEStampers blog found here:

Hi, it's Lois, as our first hostess for our 2022 challenges here wishing you a Happy New Year. It's a brand-new year, so use something brand-new or something you've never used before on your card. It could be a stamp, a die, or even a new technique.
This is a new die for me. It is from Momenta and creates this beautiful winter scene. I never see snow in the winter where I live. All my 71 years, I have only seen snow here where I live less than 10 times probably. It never lasts long and we all go nuts when we have a light coat of it in our yards. So, for me these are only paper scenes or ones in my dreams. May your new year bring you new experiences and new adventures. And may our "new" normal include love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

This card is my first attempt to use Dylusions spray ink on a stencil. The stencil is from /Gina K which is the flourished one. The other stencil is from Gina Marie and I blended distress oxide ink over the stencil for this. Then I cut this die cut set from Momenta in white and I colored it with copic markers. I mounted it on purple cardstock.
The challenge this week was Trend for Just Us Girls and the requirement was to use inked or sprayed backgrounds. I combined the two.

I made this card for the Make my Monday #165 challenge. I used a stencil from Rubbernecker and then added snowflakes from Spelllbinder dies. The sentiment is stamped using a Unity stamp. I added mini crystal jewels on the snowflakes.
