Flowers, Puppy Dogs and Snowmen!!

I have some cards today created for specific challenges. This week's challenge at DRS Designs is to use brads on your card. I used the brads on my punched flowers for their centers.

The card base is purple with a layer of golden yellow and then a white layer that was embossed with a flower embossing folder. The flowers were created using three different flower punches, layered together then held together with yellow and purple brads. The leaves were punched with a MS punch held on with small glue dots. The Thank you sentiment was stamped in black on the white panel before the embossing. This was a quick and easy card and I like the result!

This next card was created for the Seize the Birthday Challenge. This week's challenge is to create a masculine birthday card using their sketch.

The card base is kraft card stock with a layer of Tim Holtz Kraft-Core green card stock. The main image was stamped in Memento Black on white card stock and colored with Copics. I used the Easy Grass Background stamp to add some more grass to the image, after masking the gray puppy. Nesties were used to cut out the image and its layers. Behind the main image is a kraft panel that is stamped with the Dog Paw Background in Memento Cocoa ink and layered on brown CS. The Sentiment was also stamped in Memento Cocoa on white and cut into a banner. The "paws" were created using a MS punch. After punching them in the kraft, they were layered on scalloped ovals.

Here's the sketch we were to use. I like the look and will be using this one again!

This last card is for Lesley's Merry Monday challenge. This week we were to choose three items in a row (like Tic Tac Toe) to create our Christmas card.

I went diagonally and chose Blue, Color with Markers and Ribbon. This is also my last card for the monthly Christmas Card challenge at SCS.

The card base is white with a layer of Bashful Blue that was embossed with the CB snowflake folder. Nesties were used to cut out the oval center in the blue panel and create the white scalloped frame for the main image. Merry Christmas was stamped in black before the embossing. The snowman and friend is stamped in Memento Black on white, colored with Copics then attached behind the blue panel. Some blue sheer ribbon and a rhinestone snowflake were added to finish the look.

Thanks for stopping by!
