O Holy Night

The simplicity of this card is my favorite part, the Holy family, a simple family, on a simple card. The buttercream cardsotck has candy cane embossed Rich Razzleberry layered on top. The family is colored in with soft pencils, and touch of stardust stickles added to each lamb. Tied all together with a blue ribbon to coordinate with the blanket

Chillin out

Just tryin to chilllllllllllllllllllll in this heat, this card is full of layers and texture. The colors remind me of the winter nighttime sky, the blues and blacks, and a bit of soft yellow. Both the midnight black shimmer cardstock and the stripe of blue cardstock are cuttlebug embossed with the snowflake folder. The snowman is heat embossed, with the stars colored in and then Stickled gold. The yellow layer is popped up on dimensional tape, next to the black and white gingham ribbon. The scroll is also on dimensional tape.

Christmas in July

For the next few days I will be sharing some holiday cards I created with my neighbor on Wednesday. With the heatwave we have here in Ohio, we must do something to stay cool!
Today's card is all about the warming up. The paper is from Michael's, I picked it up 7/$1! Accented with white twill tape, punched out snowflakes, chocolate brads (mmmm, doesn't that sound good with some hot cocoa?!?!).

Inspired by Cake...

made with fewer calories! The CAS 74 challenge over on Splitcoast called for stampers to be inspired by Carrie's Cakes, and let me tell you, we had SO MANY yummy creations to drool over,... I mean be inspired by! I just fell in love with the textured white frosting on the Nannette cake, the deep chocolate color on the Taylor, and the sunflowers on the Regina and Sheila cakes.
It is difficult to see in the picture, but there are two scored lines below the wide brown ribbon on this card, and the top portion is Cuttlebug embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. I added flower soft to the center of the sunflower, which is popped up on dimensional tape.
thanks for looking!
