winter wishes

Hi everyone! It’s the first Tuesday in February and I’m happy you’ve stopped by! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for our February Baby, It’s Cold Outside challenge! We’d love to see your project featuring hot cocoa, sweaters, mittens, or quilts. I created a Christmas card in non-traditional colors featuring a quilt created with the My Favorite Things Die-namics Diagonal Quilt Square Cover-Up die and vintage marketplace papers. So fun!


I picked out several patterned papers and some brown cardstock, and proceeded to cut several quilts. Then I pieced them together with the different papers and the brown cardstock, so I now have several finished quilts to use on other projects. :) I stamped a sentiment in the lower right-hand corner and added some Rox stones to complete the front.


I decorated in the inside panel with strips of brown and pink cardstock, stamped the Christmas sentiment and then layered the panel on the brown cardstock.


And one more peek… I love quilts (and the warmth they bring) and I love Christmas cards in non-traditional colors!

Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up thick and regular Whisper White cardstock, Stampin’ Up Blushing Bride cardstock, Darice Premium Brown cardstock, Bazzill Basics Vintage Marketplace Mini Prints 6×6 paper pad

** 12/15/17 Highly Commended Winner at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge! **

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Another fun challenge is launching over at Crafty Catz and I’m popping in this morning with a guest designer project! The theme this week is Sparkle N Shine and our sponsor is Polkadoodles, so come on over and play with us!

I purchased this adorable image, Christmas Shopping – Winnie White Christmas, for my stash and couldn’t wait to use it! I don’t often use pre-colored images but this one was just too perfect to pass up! I cut the image with a double-stitched square die. You can’t tell in the photo, but I used Versamark and Ranger Bridal Tinsel embossing powder on the entire surface of the image to create a very special wintery sparkle.


I chose a pretty blue gingham paper for the background, along with some glitter cardstock and several different die cuts to embellish this adorable focal image. I stamped a sentiment in black ink and cut it with a fishtail die. I finished the front with a double loop bow created from beautiful wrinkled ribbon.


For the inside, I stamped a simple sentiment on a panel layered on blue cardstock. I’m so loving how this turned out!
