Shopping Our Stash - Challenge 78

 Challenge 78 for Shopping Our Stash is to use a leaf or many leaves on your project.






 I really dug deep into the drawers, shelves and piles to come up with the ingredients for this card.  All of it very old and very neglected!  The card base is some Star Dream card stock in a coppery colorThe image layer is some thick and textured handmade paper. (although not handmade by me!)  I stamped the leaf trio (Hero Arts) with some Lumiere paint in green and some additional gold paint was dabbed on before stampingThe ribbon was an afterthought.  I'm still deciding whether I like it on this card or not.

Thanks for looking!  This is my third post for today.  Scroll down to see the cards I made for the Deigned 2 Delight November release and for the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges.

M5D Season's Greetings






I made this card for the new release at McMahon Five Designs using their image called Season's Greetings.  I kept the focus on the cardinal and tree branch, so colored the bird feeder a very pale gray and left the sky white, except for adding a light touch of Stickles to the snowflakes.  The image panel was mounted onto SU's Cherry Cobbler card stock and then popped up with dimensionals over the brown satin ribbon and some DSP from SU's Frostwood Lodge collection.  Behind the DSP is another layer of Cherry Cobbler cs and then the card base itself is white.  Season's Greetings!

SOS: Challenge 77

 This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down to see my card and post for Holly Jolly.


 At Shopping Our Stash we are on Challenge 77 : Make a Thanksgiving or a Thank You Card.






I chose to make a thank you card with a fall theme.  Ivory card stock was used for the base and image piece.  Early Espresso card stock was used for the other layers.
The image on this card is from a SU set called: "Just Celebrate".  I used the following Copics to color: E08, E35, E39, W1.  Spellbinders oval dies were used for the image layers.  I dug into my small stash of Washi tape  and was lucky enough to have the right colors for the background.

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge...

 Oh, it's good to be creating again!  Thank you for your patience with my health issues and welcome back!

The challenge this week at Holly Jolly is to create a card inspired by a Christmas Carol.  Our sponsor this week is "Bugaboo Stamps"!  Check out our challenge blog for more details.




For my card I used our sponsor's image called "Chubby Snowman 2".  Isn't he a cutie? I have him trying to catch snowflakes.  The background paper is from Gina K's patterned paper pack "Blizzard" and was adhered to a white card base with dimensionals after punching three circles near the top.  The three blue snowflake embellishments are some confetti pieces recently purchased at Wal Mart in the Christmas department.  Stickles was added to the image for some sparkle.  The following Copics were used to color the image: BG10, E47, R39, YR18
