OWH Sketch #241

Mary Ellen's inspiration card was totally fabby...I just loved the colors and layering.  My card features a stamp & die set from My Creative Time and sentiment by Fiskars. I found them at the annual scrapbook garage sale.  Paper is from Stampin' Up.  Thanks for lookin'.

OWH ODBD Challenge: Snow

Work has been crazy due to a big project that is now finished WooHoo!  Hopefully I can get caught up on a few challenges starting with this one at OWH.  The image is from Hero Arts and was spritzed with water before stamping to give a watercolor effect.  I embossed vellum and attached it with the twine and a few glue drops on snowflakes to help it stay flat.  Sentiment is also by Hero Arts.

Addicted to CAS: Vellum

The current challenge at Addicted to CAS is to use vellum on your card.  I decided to CASE Maria Fischer's "Delicate Days" card that was published in Papercrafts Holiday Cards & More Volumne 9.  I used a Hero Arts image and sentiment.  The tree stamp was spritzed with water to give it that uber popular watercolor effect.

OWH Sketch #238

Yesterday I read the OWH news that a few more Christmas cards are needed so I decided to use Barb H's sketch as my inspiration.  I dug out a Simple Stories Christmas Pad and added a few scraps to make my card.  This is a fun & easy sketch.

Cards in Envy: Autumn Leaves

Absolutely love the current theme at Cards in Envy as fall is my favorite time of year...even if it means winter is on it's way.  This image by Marianne Walker is a super fun one to color.  I actually CASEd a card I had made previously with this image. Papers by K&Co, DCWV, and ?Bazzill.  Not sure if I am sold on the eyelets and ribbon idea but I really wanted to try something other than brads.  Let me know what you think.

Addicted to CAS & The Male Room

This Taylored Expression cutting plate (one of my new fave toys) was used to create a stencil from the backing and the actual adhesive paper to accent.  The current sketch from The Male Room is my inspiration for this card that I am also linking up to the current challenge at Addicted to CAS.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts; brad is from my stash.

Thanks for visiting my blog on the most wonderful card maker holiday of the year.  Operation Write Home is having their annual blog hop to celebrate and I definitely wanted to join in the fun. Woo Hoo!!!  Here is the link to return to the OWH WCMD Hop, if you need it.  Current card needs can be found HERE.

My card features Skye and Kari designed by Sandy Allnock, MME papers and a CTMH sentiment.  I was extremely fortunate to purchase this stamp set at a local stamp garage sale a couple weeks ago.  I was like Sheldon in a comic book store! Well, I won't keep you as there is so much more to see.  Happy hopping!!!

Just Hang On

This little kitty is kinda how I am feeling right now.  I have been MIA due to being super busy with a BIG work project.  I made this card using the OWH Sketch #240 with a couple of minor adjustments.  I am also linking it up to the current challenges at Cards in Envy and Words 2 Scrap By.
