Happy Thursday everyone!! Boy are the weeks just flying by. Thanks so much to everyone for your well wishes and prayers. I actually think I am starting to get a little better. I do have a break in coughing once in a while. Phew! Maybe I am finally starting to get over this horrendous cold!
Speaking of cold....As I am thinking of cards and projects, I am starting to make headway on my holiday cards. Christmas here is usually very cold and snowy.
Anywho... on to my first creation.
I made this card for yesterday's SC251 using Roxi's sketch (She chose the sketch and sample from my friend Anne. Congrats and Anne!!) and the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge (create a card or project based on the nativity).
Here is Lisa's verse and challenge to her readers at Stampin Sister's in Christ:
Lisa couldn't help but chose the scripture Luke 2:11: "Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." (NIV) Now that many of us are starting to think about Christmas, she wanted to remind us that it is more important than ever that we keep foremost in our minds what Christmas is all about. Jesus is the reason for the season!
STAMPIN SISTERS IN CHRIST CHALLENGE
The challenge is to make a card or project featuring the nativity or other religious theme about Christ's birth.
I used the We Three Kings from Our Daily Bread Designs. I colored it with Prisma color pencils and gamsol. I sprayed the entire card with pearl glimmermist. It has a real shimmer in real life but not in this photo. The paper is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, my favorite!
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: We Three Kings
Paper: Soft sky, Chocolate Chip, BG Eskimo Kisses
Accessories: MS Snowflake border punch, pearls, Snowflakes embossing folder, pearl glimmermist, Choc chip corduroy buttons, baja breeze ribbon, gold cording, paper piercer
The second card I created for LSC240 Christmas tree, WT238 Say it With Pizaaz, and La La Weekly's challenge to add sparkle. As I stamped this out, I imagined going out in the woods with the family on a wintery day looking for the perfect Christmas tree.
Some of the trees are embossed with holographic embossing powder to give it sparkle. I also made a mess of my classic frame by stamping versamark over top and then lifting the frame off and embossing it with holographic powder as well. It is hard to capture the sparkle in this photo. The corners are created with silver glitter paper, the ribbon is a glittered lace and their is sparkly embossing throughout. You may be able to see the sparkle more if you click on the picture for a close up.
