Merry Monday Challenge #29

I had some company this week:)  I got a little behind on my card making:(   But, I’m going to catch up:)

This card is for Merry Monday over at Always Playing With Paper.  They have a number of challenges to play in, so check them out:)  This challenge has a sketch, here it is:

I like to stay pretty close to the sketches, and I’m a CAS (Clean And Simple) kind of girl, so not a lot of “fluff” on my cards.  Here’s the card I made, you can click on it to make it larger:

Gingerbread men are soooo cute!  All my supplies are Stampin’ Up! today, except for some plain cardstock.  I keep most of my supplies right on or near my “desk”, it’s actually one of those heavy duty fold up tables.  Anyway….my supplies are close by and sometimes I don’t realize how many products I’m using.  I created a pile today and there are a number of items!  I will list them all below:)

Thanks for stopping by:)  I hope you’re getting in the mood for Christmas! 🙂

Stamping 411 #268

I’m still struggling with all the chaos in my house:(  I did have time to make a card for the Saturday Sketch Challenge over at Stamping 411:)

Here’s their sketch:

I like to stay pretty close to the sketches.  I’m a clean and simple (CAS)  kind of girl;)  Here’s my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

Wow, I love that glimmer paper!  Did I use the scrap left over when I cut a shape?  Yep, I did;)  I’ve never done this before, but I think I like it:)  I think it gives the card a very dramatic look.

I used all Stampin’ Up! products that will be in my supply list below.  For the main image, I did use the left over from a cut out shape.  I used the Framelits-Labels Collection (125598).  I used regular tape to make them stay together, and then glued them on  a scrap piece of cardstock with Tombow glue.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up.

The image is from the Beautiful Season stamp set (122682), I used the cling set.  For the sentiment, I also used the Beautiful Season set, I just used part of one of the sentiment stamps. The whole sentiment reads “May your season be blessed with all things bright & beautiful”.  Obviously to large to fit my banner;)

If you’re following me, thank you!  I know I haven’t been very good at keeping up my blog:(  I will try harder:)

Thank you all for coming by!  I hope to see you again soon!

All Supplies are Stamin’ Up!
