My Crafty New Year

 


I have so many cards that I have been working on over the past few days...let's get started.

First up is a trio of cards I created using some new stamps and stencils from The Greetery called Fresh Florals.  I ordered this bundle when The Greetery had a sale, and I think they are some of my favorite flowers...The stencils take away much of the guess work of lining up multi layer images.

First up, I created a stenciled and stamped panel using the colors from Color Throwdown #624.  Even though the background is floral, I think I could use this as a masculine card because of the colors.





I created another panel using a variety of purple inks and papers.  I am entering this card at AAA Birthday Challenge #21: A Stencil Background.




My third color ways with these stamps and stencils is a get well card, and I am inspired by the challenge at CAS on Friday #221: Feel Better.  I am entering this card as well as the purple card above at WWC303: Anything Goes Feminine.














Next up is a card I made by first creating a snowy background using the SSS Falling Snow stencil with glitter embossing paste, and then by die cutting the Mama Elephant Big Happy Birthday die and sponging with various shades of purple ink. I added a few Little Cat Agenda stamps to add to the birthday party.  I am entering this card at Seize the Birthday #205: Snowy Background, AAA Birthday Challenge #21: A Stencil Background, Just Us Girls #566: Use a Stencil, and Addicted to Stamps and More #396: Make Your Mark.







When I saw the Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast Day challenge at Festive Friday #0075, I knew I had to play along.  And I don't just mean to make a card, if you get my drift.....I pulled out my Concord & 9th Cool Treats stamps and dies, and made this summery ice cream card.  I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #181: Up to 1/3 + Summer in January and Addicted to CAS #188: Embossing.






Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #139: Cozy Winter inspired me to mask and stamp this cozy scene.  Isn't that a wonderful way to spend a chilly winter afternoon?  I stamped a frame of snow around my scene, to let everyone know how cold it is outside and warm and cozy inside.  I am also entering this card at Inkspirational #230: Mask and Addicted to Stamps and More #396: Make Your Mark.






Last up is a trio of what were some of the last Christmas cards I made in December, but did not yet have a chance to post.  I am entering all three at Kat Scrappiness Winter Challenge, CAS Christmas January Challenge: Silhouette, Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge Anything Goes, and Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge: Short and/or Tall (my cityscape is made of very tall buildings and skyscrapers, and all three of my slimline cards are very short).















Thanks for Visiting

Snowy background, ice cream, ombré sentiment - sweet CAS card! If the cat was grey, and her hair (now) white - your masked scene could be Duncan and me! ;) Finally, a gorgeous trio of slimline cityscape cards.
