http://christmascardsallyearround.blogspot.ca/2012/07/july-challenge.html- use Holly or Poinsettia
Oh I missed a few challenges like Gothic challenge from Craft Your Passion and Whimsy for Monochromatic. I just had to deal with my mom taking another turn downward with her dementia and my dog passing away. Boy...I guess I am a bit of a downer but I tried to get better by making cards! The first card is the Sketch that Sparkles wanted us to use and I had fun doing. I used up some card pieces I had (well I have alot left) and I used sparkles for the tree and stickers of holly as well as the tree. The 2nd card is in silver but the same tree-just different sparkle colour with the holly leaves. The 3rd card is from the 52 Christmas Cards Throwdown that I also missed but I love the sketch so much and the way I did the sketch that I entered it in the Christmas Stampin. I used my poinsettia stamp and embossed in 3 different spakle colours (Green, Egyptian Gold and red). I cut it for each panel and the background I used Pearl dust pwoders. I stamped the Seasons Greetings in the same sparkle powder and used watercolour for the distressed edging. The 4th and 5th card would have been great for Christmas Stampin last week as I never used those stamps! The 4th card is a stamp I bought for $4! I used all shades of brown with a hint of colour. I used mainly my chalks and distressed the edges too. The punch is the poinsettia punch and I used some stickles on that flower. The last card I tried my gothic look. I stamped the angel in silver along with the holly and used silver sparkle. I added the snowflakes and raised everything with pop up dots. Only black and grey papers were used...all with some shimmer:) Have a great day everyone and week!
