Two birds

Here is a card I made last Saturday for my favorite Saturday challenges. I didn't get to put it up though because my internet isn't working properly, so I had to find a different way to edit my pictures. I finally figured it out. The challenges are:

Less is More -wings
52 CCT -sequins & pearls

I made a couple of partridges in a pear tree branch for the wings challenge to fit in with the Christmas theme of 52CCT.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Cotton Candy, Outdoor Denim
Stamps: Pear & Partridge Card WOTG, Very Merry Christmas, Wonderland WOTG
Ink: Outdoor Denim, Baby Pink, Whisper
Other: Silver Sequins, faux pearls (not CTMH)

Color Dare 130

This week at Color My Heart we're challenging you to use White Daisy and Silver. But there is a twist. You are not allowed to use Black! I made this card that I CASED from Pinterest, but I used a scallop rectangle that I had laying around.

I stamped the flourish in Whisper and embossed the sentiment with silver. I wish you could see it better, but my camera is still lost, so I'm taking crappy cell phone pics and on top of that, my internet isn't working right so I had to edit this in Picasa instead of the PicMonkey that I usually use! Just believe me that it looks great in real life! :)

Come play along with us this week. You have until Thursday at 9PM central!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy
Stamps: Love Life, Scandinavian Wishes, Illuminate
Ink: Whisper, VersaMark
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Just Blooms Paper Shapes Florets, Silver Glitter Gems

Color Dare 128 - a bit late

I have had a rough couple of weeks! I found out on Jan. 28 that my youngest brother died unexpectedly. I didn't feel like creating anything after that. Then I went to Ohio for his funeral and I didn't create anything while there. Then I lost (or hopefully misplaced) my camera, so I haven't been able to take pictures of my creations. So I finally today got around to creating what I had meant to make last week for the Color Dare, and I took a picture of it with my cell phone. Sorry about the poor quality!

This card is a complete case of one I saw on pinterest. I just wanted to see if I could make it using only CTMH products. I think it turned out nicely. The cricut cuts are from Artbooking.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Kraft, Black, Cranberry, Flaxen
Stamps: Chantilly Scrapbooking WOTG
Ink: Cranberry
Other: Bitty Brads, Red Sparkles, Clear Sparkles, Waxy Flax, Artbooking Cricut cartridge
