Glittery Peacock Card

Hello Everybody!

Wow!  November has gone by so fast.  So fast that I almost missed this post!  😲  And now there are emojis in blogger!  Have I been gone that long?  (LOL  just kidding I posted on November 1st.)

So since it's November 15, it time for a mid-month reminder of our very cool challenge happening at Creative with Stamps.  You have to use a bird stamp.  So be sure to check out what my awesome teammates created along with the rules here.

For my card I used a peacock stamp from Great Impressions.  I embossed it with Sienna Star embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The sentiment is from an old Fiskars thank you set.

The glitter around the edges is also from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Golden Silver.  It is absolutely beautiful.  Gold sometimes is dark and that is ok in some applications.  But I love happy bright gold and this glitter is all of that.  I used red line tape around the edges.  The black pearls are from Rangers Enamel Accents.  For me I needed to balance out the sentiment.  :)


I couldn't figure out which photo I liked better.  So I thought why not include them both.  

And we have 2 great sponsors this month-so there are prizes!


3 Digital Stamps from Eureka Stamps

So please join us with your bird stamps!  Until next time my friends...stay tweet! :)

Christmas Flamingos

Hello Everybody!

It's time for a new challenge at Creative With Stamps!  This month we want to see those bird stamps!  Turkeys, pigeons, -whatever birds you have in your stampsets we want to see them!

Don't forget to include this graphic!

Now maybe I should have gone with Turkeys, but the flamingos were talking the loudest to me.  So I made a Christmas card.  The stamp are Greatest Impression.  Here is a closeup of the glitter accents.  Also I colored with copic markers and then with distress ink around the oval.

Here is my card.  

Thank you for stopping by.  Until next time my friends...time for Christmas! :)

Golden Ticket Card

Hello Everybody!

It's November 1st and it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards!  This month we want to see layers on your cards!  Or you can use this palette.  Totally up to you!

Here is my card.  I went with layers.  Most of the papers are from Prima the engraver collection.  I used a solid background piece of cardstock from the collection as the base.  Then I cut out pieces and arranged them on the solid cardstock.

Here is the second pieced panel before I added the sentiment and rub-ons.

I also embossed a black cardstock panel that the golden ticket would pop out against.  The ticket, ticket paper and die cut for the sentiment are Tim Holtz's.    I rubbed on some words from Tim Holtz just to added a little more depth.

I hop you come join us a House of Cards!  Share your layers! :)

Until next time my friends, happy crafting! :)
