There’s a lot of romantic love in the air! We keep getting wedding announcements and that means I need to build up my stash of wedding cards!
For this one, I used the Freshly Made Sketches #367 challenge for my inspiration. I love playing along with Freshly Made Sketches because I love a good clean card and this one usually can have a little layering or dimension. I was so excited to be chosen as a Princess in their challenge last week with my Poinsettia card!!
So with yet another beautiful and simple design to work with, I started playing. I ended up using this beautiful Happy Day set and dies by Concord and 9th.
I chose colored pencils with Gamsol for the coloring
And I added Wink of Stella with Glossy Accents over the top on those flowers. The little sequins with pearls tucked in added a sweet center to them as well. I got those from Stampin’ Up! awhile back and it was fun to pull them out again for this
And that’s one wedding card down – 4 more to go! What a sweet time for all these new couples.
Have a wonderful day!
I have a clean and simple card today to enter in the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge and Design Team Call!
I had so fun playing with this sketch and this was the final design I decided on
That gorgeous poinsettia is from a stamp set by Gina K called a Year of Flowers 1
The joy stamp is from Spellibinders and the beautiful die behind it is by Sizzix
I brushed over the die with Wink of Stella and it gives a subtle and pretty shimmer when you turn the card just right. Not real easy to catch in pictures but oh so pretty in real life! I made the center of the flower stand out by using gold stickles and it brings out that shimmer from the Wink of Stella behind it
I love the clean simplicity of this sketch design and I love the way this Christmas card turned out!
I think it would be a blast to design for Freshly Made Sketches because I just love a good clean and simple card! They pack a good “wow” into a very do able card.
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be playing in the next FMS challenge too. Can’t wait to see what it is!
Have a super happy day!
I made this simple and pretty one layer Christmas card today for the Less is More one layer holiday card challenge.
I absolutely loved the “Merry Christmas” sentiment by Gina K!
And I loved turning back in time with the ornaments! These pretty ones are from an old Stampin’ Up! set.
A little sparkle dresses it up just a bit more to give it some extra “pretty”!
I love good one-layer cards for Christmas! Easy to reproduce lots of them! I get so many ideas that I can’t do only one style though! So a few of each of several different kinds is more fun to me
Thanks for stopping by today to see another clean and simple card. My next card isn’t Christmas and has some fun dimension to it! I’ll be back in a couple days with it.
Hope you are feeling lots of Christmas in the air!
Anyone who visits my blog or follows my Instagram, knows that I LOVE a card challenge! I seriously live for them! I see the challenge and can’t stop thinking in my mind all the different possibilities.
Well I found a new challenge blog!! Yay!! It’s AAA Cards. A good CAS card always makes my heart pitter patter and this looks like a challenge blog for that. Their current challenge is to make a card that is Mostly White
So with this new Pink and Main Snow Globe set that I’ve been loving, I went to work on a mostly white, clean and simple card!
I used very muted tones to color him and I added white Wink of Stella over the coloring, which softened it up even more.
You can’t see the tiny touch of glitter on the snowflakes very good but here is an angle that caught it just a bit.
I love how this little guy’s hat is about to fall over his eyes 🙂 It’s the perfect card for this day where I live – it snowed last night and it is super cold!
And that was so fun making a card that is mostly white! I LOVED this concept of a clean and simple card with very little color.
And that’s my card for today!
I’ll be back tomorrow with another CAS card that is only one layer with no dimension. Hope you’ll visit again!
Have a happy day!
I’ve had my eye on the adorable products by Pink & Main for awhile and they had such an amazing sale last week that I couldn’t resist getting a little haul from them! Want to see something so cute?!! Look at how their dies are PINK! I’ve got a lot of product and never have I seen colored dies! I love it! 🙂
I spent a little time having fun coloring the sweet images in this Snow Globe set. After all, it is the last day of the 30 day coloring challenge by Kathy Racoosin and I wanted to take part one last time.
And it was time to add a couple of these to a card. I was inspired by a “Card a Long” theme over at Stamp Nation. It was “Alternative Color Scheme” for Christmas. Lot’s of bright pretty colors that aren’t the traditional Christmas colors. Pink stood out the most and I’ve never used pink on a Christmas card so it was time to give it a go and came up with this square shaker card.
I can’t believe that tomorrow is December 1st! It’s such an exciting time of year.
Thanks for stopping by!
Today is a super clean and simple card! I love switching my stamping up to do a good CAS! I’m playing along with the Less is More challenge which is to make a one layer Holiday card.
This cute little Santa holding a Christmas list is so cute! It’s a new one by Stampin’ Up! and I just couldn’t resist it!
As I play along, I also want to wish Sarah well! She will be leaving Less is More and while I don’t know her, she is obviously very loved.
And so I will also be playing along with this a few times so that I can enter for a spot on the Less is More design team! I think it would be a blast to keep up the CAS stamping on a regular basis and take the fun challenges over there.
Have a wonderful day!!
Today’s tag was inspired by Carol Mayne’s tag on Day 1 of The 25 Tags of Christmas.
I loved her craft cardstock stamped with the bold red Merry Christmas on it! So cute!
Here is what I came up with from the inspiration her tag gave me.
I used the Fa la la stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and I then had that song in my head the rest of the day! 🙂 But hey, I’m okay with it now that Thanksgiving is over!
With some embossing and some glitter, my simple tag was complete
Thanks for stopping by!
