Baby It's Cold!

Baby it IS cold outside!  I'm so thankful for a nice, wam house!    
But it's time for a new challenge at Twisted Thursday  at The Outlawz!

 This month we are sponsored by :  http://www.etsy.com/shop/annesdigitalart
                                           

And our challenge this week is our usual "Anything Goes, with a Twist and the Twist is First Day of Winter!"

Winter = cold in my mind, hence my card:
I love this red, embossed foil paper!  I bought a bag of "paper scraps" from The Paper Studio several years ago and I've used some of this red just about every Christmas.  The poinsettia cut is from the "Cricut Seasonal Cartridge "Christmas".  I typed the sentiment on my computer and cut it out with a Spellbinders die.

The first sentiment is  Stampin' Up stamp, the second is a Stampabilites stamp.

I appreciate you stopping by today and I hope you'll join us at The Outlawz!

I haven't been joining in other challenges much lately, so I'm joining up this time at these challenges:

A Random Fan - anything goes

Bling It On!

Good morning!  I hope you are staying warm 'cause it's cold around here!  I hope this isn't an indication that our whole winter is going to be early, cold and icy.   Well, I guess if it is, I should be able to hide in my craft room a lot!  :)  

It's Team A's turn to host the new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and our theme is "Bling It On"!  Seriously, who doesn't love bling???

I've used RF "Gilded Christmas Dove"


I colored the image with Glitter Gel pens and mounted it on a card base made with two different cuts from Cricut's Lacy Labels cartridge.  This shot shows the sparkle of the gel pens on the image.  It almost looks like plastic in real life.
The gems are from The Paper Studio.  They are corner pieces, but I opened them up wider to fit the card shape better.
This stamp is from Stampabilities.

Come on over and "Bling It On" with us!

"Oh Christmas Tree" @ My Sheri!

Today we have a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts and we are hosted by Sue.  She chose the theme "Oh Christmas Tree - make a card for Christmas which must include a tree on it."  I had stamped this tree image several weeks ago and accented it with white glitter glue, then left it laying on my worktable just waiting for a good use.  And this challenge was perfect!  



The card base is embossed with a new folder that came with my latest issue of Card Maker magazine.  I cut out the center and glued holographic paper behind it, then popped up the trees on top of that.   A little star and ribbon from my stash and the front is done!


Inside is a sweet stamp from Stampabilities.

I hope you'll head over to My Sheri Crafts, check out the great inspiration there and then join us!  Thanks for stopping by!
