Embellished Ornaments Gifts Card




It's funny how some of the best things happen unexpectedly!
I had just returned from a last minute week long trip, and needed to come up with the Stampin' Royalty challenge right away, as i was too busy while i was gone to get it done, but when i saw this picture inspiration, it luckily didn't take me long to come up with a design! maybe it was the time crunch pressure? haha...
I was inspired by the gifts in the main part of the picture... so pretty! 
I liked making this card because i was able to use SCRAPS!! woohoo!! that always makes me happy!
It's pretty straight forward, i used the Holly Berry Builder Punch for the bows, and just layered everything. I think i'm gonna make a lot more to send out for Christmas! 



Supplies:
Stamps - Embellished Ornaments
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Tip Top Paupe
Ink - Early Espresso
Accessories - Holly Berry Builder Punch, Gold Glimmer Paper, Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

Cookie Cutter Christmas, Tin of Tags, Glitter Card


Here is my card for the All That Glitters Challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week!

This card took me entirely too long to figure out haha.... But i do like the end result.

We actually had a little challenge for our local stamping group, where we were all given the same 3 items (in this case, the stamped Eskimo image, the rope twine, and a strip of Designer Series Paper) and we were to take it home and create something with it, then share a picture on our group page.

I tried several different versions, and after a few hours, arrived at this card.
I typically would have shied away from these colors and would never have thought to use Delightful Dijon in a Christmas card, but behold! Stranger things have happened, i suppose!

I also incorporated Glitter for the Stampin' Royalty Challenge. There is glitter on his coat, and also highlighting the snowflake background stamping. Hard to see it in this photo, but looks really nice in person :o)


Supplies:
Ink - Delightful Dijon
Cardstock - Delightful Dijon, Basic Gray
Stamps - Cookie Cutter Christmas, Tin of Tags, Be Jolly By Golly
Accessories - Kraft Rope Trim, Warmth and Cheer DSP Stack, Rose Garden Thinlits, Gold Glitter

Little Moments, Made With Love Baby Card

Little babies are always a reason to celebrate!
We recently got an adorable bunny as a pet, and this little bunny stamp reminded me of him, so i decided to use it to make a card! 
This card is mostly layering, i embossed the large Mint Macaron panel, and th hearts paper is from the Little Moments Project Life Accessory Pack, which is a great way to use the supplies from the Project Life Kits! Very versatile!
The wooden star also comes from that kit. 
I basically stamped the bunny, then gave him a light 'shadow' around his body to help bring him off the page a bit, and colored his ear and nose pink. 



Supplies:
Cardstock-Smoky Slate, Mint Macaron, Whisper White
Ink-Smoky Slate, Mint Macaron
Stamps-Made With Love 
Accessories-Little Moments Project Life Accessory Pack, Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder

Sheltering Tree, Wetlands One Layer Card



It's a one layer card, pretty easy to make...
I first began by sponging the background colors in a 'sunset' and grass pattern, then i added the tree, and used the small 'leaf' or 'flower' stamp from the Sheltering Tree set in different colors to make the fall leaves, then added Wink of Stella Gold Shimmer to the stamped leaves to give it some sparkle! 
Lastly, i added the rake and the "Thinking of You" to finish it off! 

Easy peasy!



Supplies:
Ink- Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Delightful Dijon, 
Tip Top Taupe, soft Suede
Stamps - Sheltering Tree, Wetlands
Paper - Thick Whisper White
Accessories - Sponges, Wink of Stella Gold Glimmer Pen

Foxy Friends, Labeler Alphabet Hello Card


The theme at Stampin' Royalty this week is a Color Challenge!

Here are the colors!

For this one, i was finally able to use my Foxy Friends stamp set for the first time! This set is one of the most adorable I've ever seen! you can make so many different critters with it! For this one, i made a little woodland fox who came to say hello!
I used the Woodgrain embossing folder to emboss the Tip Top Taupe piece for the background panel, then stamped the trees in Pear Pizzazz, 'stamping off' the first time for the largest  tree, then full ink strength for the second tree, then stamped again on a scrap piece, then cut out that tree...

On another scrap piece of Very Vanilla, i stamped the fox, the stump, the mushrooms and the sentiment letters, then either cut them out or punched them out, then created this scene. i added some strips of Early Espresso to finish off the look of the card


Supplies:
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso
Ink - Pear Pizzazz, Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Stamps - Labeler Alphabet, Foxy Friends
Accessories - Woodgrain Textured Embossing Folder, Fox Builder Punch

Rose Wonder, Seaside Sympathy Card





This card was made for the Anything Goes Challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week!
I made several Sympathy cards for an order that i needed to fill.
For this one, i used Sahara Sand cardstock and Crumb Cake ink, highlighted the shells using a White Chalk Marker, and lowlighted using the Crumb Cake and a Blender Pen. 
I then used a sponge to create a mottled 'sand' effect on the panel, dabbing it between the shells. I also spattered white and crumb cake on the panel for even more visual texture.

After stamping and coloring, i ran the panel through my Big Shot using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  

The sentiment and frame stamp is from the Rose Wonder set.


Supplies:

Ink - Crumb Cake, Basic Black
Cardstock - Sahara Sand Very Vanilla
Stamps - Rose Wonder, Seaside
Accessories - Eyelets, Twine, White Chalk Marker, Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
