Brick Backgrounds

 2 Stenciled Brick Cards...


Card #1 inspired by 1 challenge...

Color Hues // #TCH54 ...A color challenge!!  The color duo for this challenge...Navy & Cream!!  I got an idea and started stenciling my bricks in navy when I realized I had stenciled on a white base!!  Ooops...that led to card #2!!  Started over on a cream base and layered up floral dies in cream and navy!!




Card #2 inspired by mistake on card #1 and 2 other challenges...

Global Design Project // #GDP372 ...A CASE challenge!!  This week we are CASEing a card by Kayla McCreadieMy inspiration...the collage of flowers in red & green & a scripted sentiment.

Once Upon A Time Challenge // #OUAT5 ...A book challenge!!  The book that we are using for our inspiration for this challenge is The Legend of the Poinsettia by Tomie dePaola.  So...I used the poinsettia stamp from Stampin Up's Ringed With Nature set.

TGIF Challenges #397 // Try Stampin On Tuesday #585 // Jingle Belles 12.2.22

 4 challenges inspired today's card...


TGIF Challenges // #tgifc397 ...A color challenge!!  Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, and Real Red are the colors called for in this challenge.  A very merry color combo.

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT585 ...A sketch challenge!!  For this challenge there was also the option of creating a non-traditional Christmas card.  I think my southern palm Christmas tree qualifies as non-traditional, don't you think?!?

Time Out Challenge // #TOC228 ...A theme challenge!!  Winter/Holiday Season is the theme for this challenge.  Who needs snowflakes when you can have seashells...right?!?  Florida's winter/holiday season looks a bit different but it is a fun time of year, all the same!!

Jingle Belles // 12.2.22 ...A Christmas wrap up challenge!!  The challenge...as we wrap up our Christmas cards for the year what we have been making!!  I think I have one or two more Christmas cards this week and then I too am calling it a wrap!!
