The first card was made for this week's Cuttlebug'
s Challenge where we were to emboss on a flower. I embossed 'Swiss Dots' on the flowers of the chair. To make this card, I simply stamped the image three times. Once on plaid designer paper, and twice on Cardstock. I cut out the chair and adhered it to the cardstock. Then I cut out the flowers, colored them with copic markers, and ran them through the Cuttlebug, then adhered them to chair. Finally, I colored the girl and cut her out and adhered her to the chair. Whew! It was a lot of work, and not something I'd do too often! LOL! The cardstock colors are all Stampin Up! 'Bashful Blue', 'Certainly Celery', and 'Pink Passion'. The image is MFT.
My second card was made for the Shine Challenge. We were to make a card that showed something meaningful to us this Holiday Season. Well, other than celebrating the Birth of Jesus, whats especially meaningful to me at Christmas is spending time with all my closest friends. Every year I throw a huge Christmas Party for my friends and neighbors. We don't have any family left to celebrate with, so celebrating with our friends is especially important to us. We have so much fun, and we all look so forward to it every year (and often talk about it for an entire year afterwards too!) LOL! I made the card using the retired Stampin Up! set 'Girlfriends'. The cardstock colors are Georgia Pacific White and Stampin Up! 'Pink Pirouette'. The rest of the papers are designer paper scraps. The sentiment is mounted up on dimensionals. The images were colored with copics and ribbon was added for embellishment.
I hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas! Amy
