Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Unfortunately I have been feeling under the weather and pretty sick over the weekend so our family had a very lay low weekend. I originally was suppose to sing for church but that was not in the cards for me with my coughing fits and no voice. Oh well...this too shall pass.
I am not up to making cards right now so thank goodness I am not a procrastinator and work well ahead of time.
Today is another Stamp and Create Product Spotlight and this week's Spotlight is anything with food...So any stamps that include food in them will be up to 25% off this week.
For my creation I used the adorable Henry Christmas Mouse from Whiff of Joy! I can't get enough of dear Henry! He is for sure one of my faves! I colored Henry with copics. The paper is Cosmo Cricket Very Merry. The flowers are prima aqua roses available at Stamp and Create and some prima flowers I found at Michaels. The Sentiment is Whimsy's Holiday Ticket Sentiments. The scallops are cut out using the scallops die from Nestabilities.
The layout uses the Whiff of Joy sketch created by Tara.
I added texture using a soft swirls embossing folder from Cuttlebug and distressed my edges. The snowflake is a button which I placed in the middle of a bow and hung gold bauble bells from.
My second card uses a sneak peak from Our Daily Bread Designs called Full of Grace- Blessings. I got some glittery dp from my scrap bin to create it (I know it is from DCWV but am unsure of the name). I just love the pink and black together. The flowers and pin are from Wild Orchid. As you can see I went die cut happy with my Lacey Squares die. Since the square was not big enough to frame my entire card, I used a die from the Fleur De Lis Frame set (Spellbinders) to piece in the middle. I put the Fleur de Lis symbol upside down.
challenges for my two cards:
