Global Design Project #272

Here is my take on the Global Design Project challenge.  Their current challenge is a CASE challenge (Copy And Selectively Edit) and we are CASEing a card by Kerstin Kreis, one of their talented team members from Germany.  I thought this challenge was perfect for showcasing my new bundle from Stampin Up...Friends Are Like Seashells.  This set along with lot of other awesome new goodies will be available in January from the new Occasions Mini catalog.

I used the die to cut out some water color paper then I inked it up with Soft Sky ink and then stamped the shells in Rich Razzleberry after spritzing them with a little water.  Added some silver cording and one of the sweet sentiments from the set.

#bethegift challenge:  Register to run/walk a 5K in the new support a good cause.

Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #261 & Tic Tac Toe Challenge #095

It is time for a new challenge from Cardz 4 Guyz!!  Our challenge to you for this current challenge (#C4G261) is to create a male card in either black and silver or black and gold.  I decided to use black and silver...perfect color combination for a masculine card made with my new stamps from Stampin Up.  You are getting a sneak peek at a bundle that will be available in January...Friends Are Like Seashells!  Since I am living in Florida, this set is perfect for me.  For Christmas I got the embossing folder, the stamps and the dies...the whole bundle!!  

One last Christmas card for this season...It is never too early to begin the stash for next year!!  This card was created for the Tic Tac Toe challenge.  My winning three in a row runs across the top of the game board...Santa/Bricks/Rhinestones.  My little santa was completely made with punches...isn't he the cutest!!

#bethegift challenge:  Forgive someone today...even if it is really really hard!!

CAS(E) this Sketch #402

Merry Christmas!!  Even though today's card is not Christmasy in nature it's sentiment speaks volumes for this day and every day as we finish out 2020!! Live in the moment!! Today's card was created for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  Their sketch was perfect for playing with washi tape and this long skinny metal sentiment that I had stashed away!!  I have included a close up of the sentiment because in the picture of my card you can't really see it...I just couldn't get the lighting right.

#bethegift challenge:  Order a pizza and have it delivered to the hospital for those doctors and nurses that are having to work today!!

Just Add Ink Challenge #536 & CASology Challenge #380

 Today's card was inspired by two challenges...

Just Add Ink // #536 ...A photo challenges!  This little snowman in a bucket was two cute and I did my best to recreate it with stamps!! Not quite as cute as the photo but I'm happy with how it turned out!!

CASology // #380 ...Snowman challenge!  I know, I know.....not a lot of white space but a lot of empty space....does that count?!?  My snowman in a bucket needed a wooden back ground but since it was a single image I thought it might work for your challenge even though my backdrop was not white space!!
