Tic-Tac-Toe time at The House That Stamps Built this week! Lots of fun choices to choose from, I went with Gems, Christmas and Silver. I stamped this wonderful saying (Repeat Impressions 2103-M, These three gifts) on vellum, embossed in silver and added a ribbon and that is all it needed.

Beary Merry Christmas

The Joy's Designer Choice Challenge: Glitter


This week was Joy's choice and she choose glitter.  I will let you in on a little secret,  I am not a glitter gal, it  stays on me and I find it all over my house forever.  But I decided to get messy and use real glitter for Joy's challenge.  Okay you are asking where is it.  I stamped up this darling Repeat Impressions 2007-I, Christmas Teddy and glittered up his hat and scarf and went to paper piece him and it just did not look right, so tossed those pieces. Okay glitter, hmm.  Got out some paper, stamped and cut out another hat and scarf and glittered it up with stickles, nope, it the trash also.  Hmm.  Okay worked on my design and then thought, okay glitter ribbon here we go!  Also used my red glitter pen on the holly berries.  I did have fun playing with the glitter.

House of Cards December Blog Hop

 


Photo Inspiration: 


I used two digital's from one of our sponsors:

The first is Snowman with tree hat , I thought this darling image and words
would make an adorable card:

Close up with glitter:



And second I used Joy Bird, I thought this was perfect for the work group cards for
the bosses at work:

Teddy Bear Christmas


It's sketch time at The House That Stamps Built, and this was our sketch from Wendy this week!

No automatic alt text available.

This one was a bit of a challenge for me, took a bit of thinking before I began on it, but I was happy with the final result.  You can't tell from the picture but I misted the entire card with Imagine Sheer Shimmer spray so it is glittered up beautifully.

Supplies:  Repeat Impressions: 2007-I, Christmas Teddy

Let's Go Blues



Anything Goes this week at The House That Stamps Built! 


The layers on my card really are navy blue, it just does not photograph that way even with numerous attempts.  This was such a fun card to make for my youngest sons birthday.  He is a big hockey (and baseball) fan.  I used embossing paste just on the diagonal and after it dried used Distress Oxides in our local hockey teams colors.  After stamping Repeat Impressions 6104-J, Birthday Vertical I printed St. Louis Blues images from Pinterest and cut them out on  my Scan and Cut. I think he will be pleased.

Thinking of you

 
 
It's been awhile since I mad a card just for fun and played along in some of my
 favorite challenges so I started this card yesterday and finished
it today.  It was nice to just relax and create.
