Thinking of You!

Kim from Can You Case It? has a great color Pink, Red, Black, and Silver inspiration this week.  I am having so much fun with my Gina Marie "quilt" dies. 
I used an old OWH sketch, then mixed pink and white embossing powder to get the right color for the Our Daily Bread sentiment.  I embossed the square with Divine Swirls to mimic quilting.

Wheels

Here is another project outside of my comfort zone.  
Momenta card stock dry embossed with a writing folder.  Dear friends are welcoming a baby boy into their family.  This little guy will have the best dads ever!  I am sharing with The Male Room Wheels challenge.

Vintage Nest

I have been trying to step outside my comfort zone and try different styles.  Vintage is so NOT me, and I rarely make square cards.  Image was colored with watercolor pencils.


I am sharing this with the Card Concept Vintage challenge and the Color Throwndown #430.

Snowman with Vellum

While the end result is nothing like I pictured in my head, I still like it!!
I dry embossed a piece of vellum and a piece of white paper using the same Sizzix folder.  I used foam daubers to lightly ink the paper layer in red, grey, blue, and silver, then added the vellum on top.  I mounted the layers on a powder blue card base.  I hope the vellum is qualifies for the Jingle Belles Midnight Clear challenge.  I am also sharing with the Merry Monday Christmas Snowman challenge.  It's a lot prettier in person...

Thanks!

Whenever I need a little extra inspiration, I turn to Operation Write Home sketches.  This is sketch #91.
The Can You CASE It color inspiration was perfect for the SU! Retro Fresh paper that I have been hoarding.

Christmas Quilt

Last Christmas, every card I sent was hand made by me.  I want to be able to do the same this year, so I am trying to play along with different challenges, and make Christmas cards.  This way, I will have a diverse stash of cards and won't be pressured at the last minute.  

I made two cards using two different patterned papers with green "sashing".  For the quilting, I embossed both quilt squares with a snowflake folder.  For the first card, I stamped the sentiment in ink, then in VersaMark, and heat embossed with clear powder.  I am really enjoying this Gina Marie die!!!  I am sharing this with the Jingle Belles Flake challenge, and the Mod Squad TEXT(urize) challenge. Lots of time to play with us at Words 2 Craft By - Let's Celebrate!!
