This is my second post for today which is surprising since for the last few weeks I have been busy making Christmas cards and decorations for my home and havent had much time to blog.  Anyway, this post is for the Just Add Ink – Bah Humbug Challenge. 

For this Challenge I made 2 Christmas Tags and a Petal Cone Christmas Tree. 

For the Tags, I used the Two Tags die, Very Vanilla cardstock, Jolly Holiday DSP and some ribbon.  For the images I used the Owl Punch and the Stocking Punch, the Stitched Stocking stampset and the To and From is from one of the stamps from the Gifted stamp set. 

Stamps:  Gifted  Paper:  Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Jolly Holiday DSP, Whisper White (for the eyes and pom-pom on hat), Chocolate Chip (for the eyes) Ink: Chocolate Chip Accessories:  Owl Punch, Butterfly Punch, Large Oval Punch, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, 1/2 ” Circle Punch, Scallop Oval Punch.


Stamps: Gifted, Stitched Stocking  Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Jolly Holiday DSP, Whisper White (for the eyes), Black (for the eyes), Early Espresso(for antlers) Ink: Cherry Cobbler Accessories:  Stocking Punch, Snowflake Die, Owl Punch (for eyes), Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/2 ” Circle Punch,  clear red circle for nose, Dazzling Diamonds.

For the Petal Cone Christmas Tree I used the Petal Cone die to cut two panels for the cone.  To make the layers for the tree, I trimmed Scallop Circles which I daubered with Old Olive.  For the tree trunk I used Early Espresso cardstock which I daubered with Cherry Cobbler ink.  To finish off the tree I added the bird from the Merry Details die.  On the back of the cone, I used the Owl Punch with the Butterfly Punch, Large oval Punch and the Scallop circle Punch to make the elf owl. 

Stamps: Gifted  Paper:  Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Black (for the eyes) Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive Accessories: Stocking Punch, Snowflake Die, Owl Punch (for eyes), Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/2 ” Circle Punch,  red rhinestones.

It has been a while since I last blogged and I thought I would participate in this weeks Clean and Simple’s sketch challenge. 

For this challenge, I started with a base card made from Pacific Point cardstock,  4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″.  I then added a layer of brushed silver metallic paper that was 1/4″ smaller than the base card.  Next, I added a layer of Bashful Blue cardstock that was 1/4″ smaller than the brushed silver paper.  I then trimmed a piece of Whisper White cardstock to be the same width as the Bashful Blue cardstock, but not the same length.  I then tore the cardstock.  Using a glue pen, I added glue along the torn edge of the cardstock and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.  I also added some extra glue to make extra snow drifts on the torn cardstock, again using the Dazzling Diamonds.  I then used a snowflake die to cut a snowflake using Whisper White cardstock.  Using one of my Merry Christmas gold stickers, I added a sentiment to the centre of the snowflake.  I then adhered the snowflake to the base card. 

I hope you like my take on this weeks sketch.
