Christmas is on the Way!

 The Paper Players has a "By the Numbers" challenge.  

I used the Stampin Up 25 Days of Christmas embossing folder inked with Old Olive in a new-to-me technique.  I edged the panel in gold, and then used stash ribbon to make it look like a package.  The stars were too small to use my gold marker, so I thinned a drop of gold reinker, and used a pin to paint.  Not perfect, then then neither are the stars!

Texture and Layers Galore!

Happy 600th challenge to Just Us Girls!  What an accomplishment!  In honor of 600, they are challenging participants to include 6 of something on their entry.  

There are 6 layers on this card, 4 textured embossing panels (isn't the cream pearl pretty with the embossing?!?), the sentiment and it's burgundy layer.  I made 3 of these with the various pieces, 1 sadly botched.  This is a fun layout to make multiples.  The JUGs word week:

Send A Smile 4 Kids Fall Cards

 It's the first Saturday of the month... which means it's time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge!

I cut the circles using my Hero Arts infinity dies, layered them onto a piece of textured cardstock, and hand drew the stitches.  The hair was cut freehand.  Super easy and fun to do!

Hope you'll stop by the Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge blog and check out our DT fall cards. Then, stop back by later this month to link up a card of your very own. Even though we are focusing on fall cards this month, any kid-friendly card can be linked up for the challenge.

If you are interested in donating your card to one of our hospitals, please check each shipper's current needs. Due to Covid, not all of our hospitals are accepting cards at this time. 

Thanks for stopping, and happy crafting!
