In the meadow we can build a snowman...

The Paper Girls' challenge is to build a snowman.  I used a layering stamp from Stamplistic, and made these ornaments.  They will be mounted onto easel cards with temporary adhesive.  Sometimes I want to give someone more than a card, but not start exchanging gifts. 
I love all of the bling.  I brushed the "snow" with Wink of Stella to give it a bit of shine.  Be sure to join us at Words 2 Craft By for our Blessings challenge!

Twofer Wreaths

The Twofer Card Challenge this round is "wreath".  
I used the Ellen Hutson Laurel Wreath die on both cards, cutting it twice for the "joy" card.  Really hard to get the dark and the bright card in the same photo/light.  The wood grain paper is American Crafts and sentiment is Recollections, the plaid and "joy" are Lawn Fawn.

Golden Deer

I love fall, the leaves, smells, pumpkins.  I just don't love knowing that the cold weather is on the way :(.

The Paper Craft Crew Challenge has an image inspiration:

I paired the Darice Deer in Forest and Inka Gold Brown and came up with this:
Love the contrast between the kraft and the gold.  I made the sentiment from Just Rite letters.

Blue (and White) Christmas

I am a paper hoarder.  There, I said it out loud.  What if I used it all?  Then what would I do?!?  I really do think this was, but I am trying to change.  I included some resin pieces as the embellishments, and highlighted the critters with some Wink of Stella, since the Believe was sparkly.  Here are some of my Winter Wonder and pearl papers, sacrificed for a couple of great challenges:
First up, Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch challenge (with die cut option):
And the Jingle Belles Critter challenge.  Thanks to the Belles, I think I have most of my cards made for this Christmas!!

Fun Fall Plaid

I got some fun leaf dies this week, and couldn't wait to try one out!
Lawn Fawn (amazing) plaid paper and sentiment die cut.  I inlaid the leaf with gold and orange.  Love the color combo from The Color Throwdown, even if I don't have the cute animals in my version:
