Mojo Monday week 82/ Merry Christmas

Happy Wednesday, This is my card for the mojo monday challenge. I've seen some people are making Christmas cards every month and I thought that was a good idea. I always want to send out home made cards to everyone at Christmas time but I never seem to get them done in time. Maybe this way I will finally be able to send them out for christmas. LOL.

All supplies used were Stampin UP. The image was from the Christmas Classics stamp set and the sentiment was from the All Holidays stamp set. The DS paper was from the I wish simply scrappin kit, and the CS was real red and white. I colored the image with water color pencils and added some gold embossing powder to the image and the sentiment. The snowfalke was embossed with silver. I added a silver star brad to ribbon.

I think this turned out very cute. What do you think? I hope everyone is having an excellent week. Thanks for stoppin by:)

Steph, I think you did a fabulous job on this challenge. And good for you to get the Christmas cards going early. I too am making my Christmas cards now....10 a month. A bit behind but am at 30 now. I make 5-10 of any one kind for my husband, us and son to send out.

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
