Begins with a "P"

My card was also inspired by the "winter wonderland" challenge over at Papercraft Challenges ( #77 ).  Snowflakes, sequins, and penguins make for a contemporary winter wonderland, don't you think?!?

A Masculine Card & A Feminine Card

2 Cards...

Card #1 inspired by 2 challenges...

Festive Friday // #FF0101 ...An inspo list challenge!!  For this challenge we are given an inspo list of ten items celebrating "National Wetland Day" and we are asked to create a card that is inspired by 3 items from the list.  My three from this current list are grasses, masculine, and browns (Early Espresso, Soft Suede, & Crumb Cake).

Paper Craft Crew Challenges // #PCC456 ...A sketch challenge!!  Great inspiration for making a masculine card.  Perfect for showcasing this wetland embossing folder.

Card #2 was inspired by 2 challenges...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS519 ...A sketch challenge!! This sketch was simple and had so much potential.  I decided to use it for making a wedding card using the beautiful retired die from Stampin Up.

The Color Hues Challenge // #TCH32 ...A color challenge!!  A duo of colors to inspire us.  Silver & White are the two colors given for this challenge.  I used both silver embossing powder (for the flowers layered on the die) and silver metallic card stock.  This metallic paper that I have is so awful to photograph...very reflective and when photographed it looks more like a black.  Much prettier in person!

CAS Colours & Sketches #453 // TicTacToe Challenge #145

2 challenges inspired today's card...

CAS Colours & Sketch // #453 ...A color challenge!! The trio of colors called for in this challenge are Mango Melogy, Granny Apple Green, and Daffodil Delight.  Such a springy combination...used with black it makes a great sympathy card.

TicTacToe Challenge // #tttc145 ...A game board challenge!! My winning three in a row on this current game board runs across the middle...white (card stock for my sentiment and white embossing powder), embossing (both dry embossing and heat embossing), and oval (oval stitched die from Stampin Up).

Color Throwdown Challenge #676 // Fusion 1.20.22

2 challenges inspired today's card...

Color Throwdown // #ctd676 ...A color challenge!!  The trio of colors for this current challenge are red, cream & gold.  I embossed my foliage and the Happiness is... sentiment using gold embossing powder and added some ultra fine gold thread for the gold.  Chose Cherry Cobbler for my red. Used cream card stock as my base and stamped my Happiness is... sentiment and coffee cup on matching cream card stock.  All three colors accounted for.

Fusion // 1.20.22 Coffee Chalkboard ...A fusion challenge!!  For this challenge we are given a photo and a sketch...use one or the other...or fuse them together to create a FUSION card.  I used both, but I flipped to the sketch to be horizontal!  I used white ink over a script embossed black card stock to give my card the chalk board look.  Finished it off with a cup of coffee and a coffee die cut that looks very similar to the scripting in the photo.

Just Add Ink #587 // Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #456

2 challenges inspired today's card...

Just Add Ink // #JAI587 ...A pick 2 challenge!!  We are given 3 elements and we need to include two of them in our card.  The 3 elements that were given...fancy edge, circle, twine.  I picked fancy edge and twine.  Stampin Up's stitched scallop die seemed perfect for this challenge along with the black twine I got for Christmas.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch // #AHSC456 ...A sketch challenge!!  The six panels behind the sentiment would also be great for using up designer paper scraps but for today's card I used my stitched scallop die to create the needed strips.
