Creative Challenge

 
 
Happy Saturday Peeps!!!
 
It is time for another  3D Creative Challenge with my friend Wendy at .WeeBeeStampin4Fun.
 
I have a fun little Pumpkin Cart treat Holder to share for my challenge item.
 
I had so much fun making my little Pumpkin Cart.

The cart is made of a box measuring 2 x 3 inches.
I started with a 4x5 inch piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock and scored a 1 inch on all 4 sides.
Super simple.
 I embossed the cardstock piece after scoring with the Tasteful Textiles EF.
I added a small strip around the top of Crumb Cake.
I sponged the edges of all the card sock with coordinating ink color. I used Early Espresso ink on the Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie on the Pumpkin pie card stock.
 
 
The wheels are made up of three size circles two are punches and one is from the Layering Circle Dies.

I used Basic Black and Crumb Cake for them,

I just winged it on making the handle, just a small strip of card stock with another square piece of cardstock folded in half and glued to the end. I rounded the top corners a bit and then sponged it all.

The die cut pumpkins come from the  Autumn Essential Dies. I used Pumpkin Pie and for the middle one I used a piece of Bumble Bee DSP from the In Color pack.
I glued the pumpkins to the inside edge of the cart.

The sentiment on the cart comes from the Harvest Hellos stamp set.

I added a bag of pumpkins tied it up with a pretty bow and added the "Happy Fall Y'all" tag.

Warm & Toasty

 
Happy Friday Peeps!!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at  
 

I used the cute Warm &Toasty  stamp set for the adorable little deer and also the new Curvy dies and Classic Christmas 6 x 6 DSP pack.

I stamped the deer with Black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock and colored with my Blends.
The Blends I used are Ivory, Crumb Cake, light and dark, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler, boh ligh and dark, Smoky Slate, light and dark, light Flirty Flamingo, just a touch in the ears, and Daffodil Delight.
The Color Lifter was also utilized. 
I used my white gel pen to add a few highlights and covered the whole image using my Wink of Stella pen.
 I fussy cut this out to use on my card.
 
 
The base of my card is Crumb Cake card stock.
I followed the sketch using  CherryCobbler card stock and then a layer of the DSP from the Classic Christmas pack that I matted with whisper white.

The sentiment panel is made with the new Curvy Dies. I am so happy with these dies and have hoped for one similar to this one for a long time. I have to admit it took me a minute to figure out how to cut both sides of the panel, but once I did I had to laugh.....sometimes I make things harder than need be! 

The sentiment comes from the Warm & Toasty set and I stamped it with Cherry Cobbler ink.

The deer was added with dimensionals.
 I used some retired Snowflake Sequins I had in my stash.

Curvy Christmas

 
Happy Thursday Peeps!!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made using some of a new bundle of products called Curvy Celebrations.
 
I used on this card one of the Curvy Dies and my sentiment is from the Curvy Christmas stamp set.
 
This bundle of products will be available for customer purchase Nov. 3rd.
This is an early release product from the January - June 2021 mini catalog.
 The bundle includes the dies, two stamp sets and a pack of 6 x 6 DSP.
I love the new DSP and will have another card to share with you using some of it soon.
 
On my card today, I used the Curvy Die and Curvy Christmas sentiment with my Poinsettia Petals stamp set and DSP from the Poinsettia Place pack.
 
 
I stamped each layer of the flower twice on thick Whisper White with Black Stazon Ink.
I colored using my Water Brush and ink pads. I used Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.
For the leaves I did the same and colored with Garden Green. 
The berries are also done in the same manner and colored with Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.
I fussy cut out my flower and leaves as I did not want a white edge around them. I did use the dies for my berries and center of the poinsettia.

I stamped the sentiment using Early Espresso ink onto the Crumb Cake curved piece.
The poinsettia is added to the card with dimensionals.
The leaves and berries are tucked in and around the poinsettia and then glued down.

 
I finished up by using my Wink of Stella on the Poinsettia and leaves and then added a few
 Gilded Gems.

Happy Thanksgiving

 
 Happy Wednesday Peeps!!!

Today's card share is one I made using two challenges.

I used the colors this week at The Paper Players:
 

and the sketch this week at Fab Friday:
 

I had the Prized Peony out already, who am I kidding, it is always on the desk.
It is my favorite set at the moment. :)
 
I stamped a couple of the flowers with Black Stazon onto Thick Whisper White and colored with my water brush. I used Cinnamon Cider and Cajun Craze for the flowers and Cajun Craze for the flower centers.

 
I fussy cut them out to use on my card.
The leaves are die cuts from the Forever Flourishing Dies. I die cut them using watercolor paper.
I colored them using Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.
I mounted he flowers and leaves on a small rectangle of Thick Whisper White that I 
embossed with the Tasteful Textile EF.
I added a scallop edge with Cinnamon Cider card stock using a die in the Peony dies 

The base of the card is Thick Whisper White and the front is another layer of white embossed with the Brick & Mortar EF.

I added the floral piece to the base with dimensionals.
 
The sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set and is stamped with Cinnamon Cider ink.
 
I finished up by covering my flowers and leaves with my Wink of Stella pen and adding three Elegant Faceted  Gems.

Warm Wishes Floral Arrangement

 
Happy Tuesday Peeps!
 
Last week I mentioned in a post about using the Prized Peony stamp set for every season and also said I had not done a Christmas/Winter theme.
Well, after feeling uninspired most of last week and sitting at my stamp table making some Halloween treats but nothing else I finally thought to myself.....go back to your comfort zone.
Do what you love and feel good doing.
So I pulled out the Prized Peony again and decided I would try red for my Christmas flower.
 
I had in mind a Carnation while coloring these. I see red carnations in many Christmas floral arrangements so that is what I decided to do.  
Now we all know that a true carnation does not have a center like this flower, but hey, that is where creative license come in to play.

I stamped the flower a few times on Thick Whisper White card stock with Black Stazon ink.
I then used my Water Brush and ink pads to color, I used Real Red and Cherry Cobbler for the flower and Crushed Curry and Bumble Bee for the center.
I fussy cut them out and then began to build my floral arrangement.
 

  I decided to put my florals in a wood box, so I used a piece of DSP from the In Good Taste pack.
I just cut a small rectangle and wrapped it with a piece of Real Red satin ribbon.
I cut a few pine cones from the Beautiful Boughs Die set with Early Espresso and Crumb Cake cardstock along with some pine boughs with Mossy Meadow cardstock to use along with the flowers in the floral arrangement.

I arranged the flowers first and then tucked in the pine cones and greenery.
Then feeling it needed something more I used a piece of DSP from the Poinsettia Place pack to die cut and fussy cut some berries.
I tucked them in and around the arrangement.

My berries are sticking out a bit past the base of the card, which I didn't think about when making the floral piece. But when adding it to the card I couldn't really change it, so this is another of my cards that would need a special envelope if it was to be mailed but chances are it will be hand delivered or attached to a gift bag.

I made the base last. I tried a few colors and pieces of embossed and DSP before settling on what you see now. I like the rustic background look
I struggled a bit with adding a sentiment as well, bu finally settled on the one here from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. I stamped with Early Espresso ink on thick Very Vanilla cardstock.

I finished up by adding a bow to he front of the box, which is fairly covered up so it is hard to see.

Have a Happy Halloween

 
Happy Monday Peeps!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made recently for a Mystery Card Challenge I participated in.

This was an online challenge in a Stamp group I am in.
If you are not familiar with a Mystery Card Challenge, they are really fun.
The person running the challenge gives "clues" for making the card.
First "clue" is always a Gather your supplies. Telling you what card stock cuts, DSP cuts, size of images, ribbon, bling...etc you will need to make the card. The choice of colors, DSP and images are up to you.
 
Anyway, they are fun and a bit challenging, I am a more visual person and need to see what we are making before deciding on what to use.  In this challenge we always have a few days to add our card, so I generally wait til the end to see the finished card to make mine...lol
 
 
This one turned out to be a  fun fold, a "W" fold I think they called it.

I used mostly elements from this month's Paper Pumpkin.

I love all the Halloween elments, the witch hat and cat are my fave but the pumpkins are super cute too.

I did use the Ornate Frames dies for the mat on my sentiment on the front.
The second panel on the inside is stamped using the Ghoulish Goodies stamp set.
