Santa and Gift Cards

Happy Thursday!

It's my day to post over at Miss Kate Cuttables.

I created a gift card holder with Miss Kate's Santa Face file.


 
I added some Wink of Stella to the hat and Spectrum Noir glitter brush to the beard and mustache.


To create the give card, I scored and folded the bottom layer, and adhered only the top half.  


I also used a die from My Favorite Things for placing the gift card.


All card stock is from My Favorite Things cut with my Cricut Explore.

I added some Wink of Stella to the hat and Spectrum Noir glitter brush to the beard and mustache.

Cardz TV Sketch Challenge

Happy Friday!

Today is a new Sketch challenge over at Cardz TV.  

Create a Thank You card using sketch #9 or #10.   




I used sketch 10 for my card.  

The sentiment from Cardz TV Many Thanks stamp set and a paper pad I had in my stash were perfect for each other.




I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white card stock, then cut it out with a circle cutter.  I have an old stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps that had a perfect sized clock face.  So I stamped it in antique linen distress ink..then inked the cirlce in it.

Happy Friday!

Today is a new Sketch challenge over at Cardz TV.  

Create a Halloween card using sketch #4 or #5.   





For my cards I used both sketches.   I couldn't help myself.  *wink*



For sketch 4, I used Miss Kate's Ghost and papers from a Bo Bunny paper pad.  

I stamped a sentiment from Cardz TV Oct. 31 stamp set.  


Sketch 5 and a werewolf came together like peas and carrots.  



For the tree layer, I stamped a retired background stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps in Unicorn White pigment ink.   The sentiment is from the same Cardz TV stamp set, Oct. 31. 

I also stamped the inside of the card base with the stamp and ink.

Sketch Challenge...and My First Video...Ever!

Happy Thursday!

It has been a long week here at Graham Manor.  Hubby was admitted to the hospital..and he's being referrred to a specialist at UW.   He's doing well now...but I have had little time to craft..

BUT, in the time I did have........I did a video.  My first video ever! 

I was inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge.  



I used Orange Fizz, Smooth White, and Black Licorice card stock.  The stamps are from LJD Primitive Pumpkins (& matching dies) and Myriad Dot Background (both retired).  The inks used was Tangy Orange, Gumdrop Green, and Steel Grey dye inks.  



I stamped the border style stamp from the pumpkin set in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Judkins Sparkling embossing powder.
