Card Concept.....Merry & Bright

Happy Wednesday Peeps!

Sorry for the long silence here on the blog, but I 'm back with a pretty little Christmas card for the new  challenge at The Card Concept Blog.
Here is our inspiration photo for this week:

Don't you love that photo, I took my inspiration from the colors, the poinsettias and the overall country feel of the photo.

I started out making my Poinsettia. I used Cherry Cobbler, and Mossy Meadow. I stamped the veins in the leaves in the same color as the paper and sponged the edges.
I used some gold foil paper for the center.

The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock and then a layer of the gold foil. I then used a layer of Corrugated Paper. love that stuff! I made my banner using some of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. 
I added the flower to the card with some dimensionals. I used some of the burlap ribbon that I cut apart and pulled out the strings to tuck around the flower. I then added a few little gold sticky back pearls.
The sentiment is from the Endless Wishes stamp set.
The card is a 5 inch square and would probably be better to add to a gift and not to mail. :)

Card Concept......Hello Falll

Happy Wednesday Peeps!

Time for a new challenge at The Card Concept.

It is a new month and that means we have a new Guest Designer, this month it is the fabulous Julee Tilman from Poetic Artistry.

Here is our inspiration piece for this week:

I took my inspiration from the colors and all the circle elements in the photo.
I decide to make a fall wreath.
I used the Wonderous Wreath Stamp Set.
The colors I used are Crumb Cake, Brushed Silver, Hello Honey and Whisper White.

I stamped the Wreath image with Versamark ink onto the Brushed Silver card stock and then embossed with white embossing powder.

I stamaped the flowers with Hello Honey ink and fussy cut them out.
The sentiment is from the stamp set For All Things.
I added a ribbon bow, I realized after adding it and 
taking the picture that I used the wrong ribbon, 
(I used Summer Starfruit, which is retired instead of the Hello Honey)
 It coordinates tho, so I think it is OK. 

Be sure and head over to the Card Concept Blog to see what the rest of the girls did with this challenge!

Sweet Sunday.......Hello Fall

Happy Sunday Peeps!

Here is the fun sketch we have for this week.

I wanted to make a Fall type card using some goodies from the Stampin Up Occasions mini.
I love the new Acorny Thank You stamp set with matching punch and
 I have had this corrugated paper from Stampin Up for a few weeks
 and wanted to use them for the acorns and had not done it so this was the perfect opportunity for me to do it!
I stamped the tops of the acorns onto Crumb Cake using Cajun Craze ink.
The bottoms are the corrugated paper punched with the matching punch.
I layered the tops over the base of corrugated acorn using dimensionals.
The leaf behind the Acorns is from the For All Things stamp set.
 I stamped with Crushed Curry ink onto Very Vanilla. I fussy cut it out and them crumbled it all up and then smoothed it back out.
I added some linen thread on top of the leaf and then added my acorns to make the fun little Fall element.
I think this grouping will be making an appearance on my
 Thanksgiving Name Cards. Be on the look out for those!

The base of the card is Crumb Cake and then the center element is Early Espresso and a piece of DSP from the Woodland paper pack.

The sentiment banner is from the For All things stamp set. I used Old Olive ink to stamp that on the Vanilla card stock.
I added a bit more Corrugated paper under the sentiment as well.
