Wishing You Joy this Holiday

Today I have a quick post for my card inspired by the MyFavoriteThings weekly sketch.


This is a quick and simple card.  I had previously stamped a red on red plaid background on some card stock using my C9 Plaid Background stamp.  I cut a 1/2' strip for the side and a sliver of black about 1/8" for the edge of my card.  The background was embossed with a wood plank embossing folder. Using my #MFTstamps Christmas Joy Card kit I die cut my word and stamped my sentiment.

I added a few gold sequins and some gold Nuvo drops.

Holiday Chaos Gift Tag

Today's challenge for the Awkward Holdiday Chaos at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog is Anything But a Card (ABC).





  I chose the image Bobblehead Snowman from Bugaboo Stamps.



I fussy cut my little snowman with my Cricut Explore, I create digital dies for all my digital stamps.  I use SCAL5 and have found that the shadow layer of 6 or 7 usually gives me the best results with my Print then Cut feature in Design Space.  This on was cut at with a shadow created at 5, and it is a little skimpy.

I colored my image with alcohol markers, since there really wasn't much to color.  I add a few highlights with my white gel pen.  The bacground is pare of the paper pack.  

There is no sentiment on the front, but my to and from is stamped on the back.

Supplies:
MFT Die-Namics Tag Builder Blueprint #5
Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Christmas 6x6 Paper Pack

Let the Holiday Chaos Begin

Today kicks off a week long event on the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.  



To start the week the first challenge is Holy Flurry of Chaos - create a project with some type of snow.  I chose the image Winter Snowman from Bugaboo Stamps.


I blended my sky background using Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Blue Sketchpad, and Wilted Violet.  I splattered and sprayed a little water to add some snow flurries, then using some white acrylic paint thinned with water, I splattered more snow flurries.

My snowman was only shaded slightly, then I added some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer for that snow sheen.

I used my hillside border dies to create snowdrifts from white glitter card stock and then used white embossing powder on my sentiment.

I just got a new stamp set from Lawn Fawn, so I couldn't resist the Santa and reindeer flying through the night sky.

And to finish it all off I added some clear sequins.

Be sure to check out the fun-filled week of challenges at Catch the Bug.  Here is a quick list of the week's challenges so you can work ahead.

Christmas Joy

Todays card features Bobblehead Angel from Bugaboo Stamps.



I used the same card stock for my letters as I did for the background layer.  I applied the letters and angel with fun foam so it holds up better in the mail.  The white layer is cut using a scalloped border die.

I stamped my sentiment directly to the card front and used white embossing powder on it.
