A Moxie Fab Glitter Challenge

Oh my! It's been a while since I have posted. The Christmas season was very busy and crazy for me, and coupled with the baby, I didn't have very much spare time to craft or stamp, let alone try to make something for a challenge. But when I saw this challenge over at Moxie Fab World, well, I just couldn't resist.
For those of you who know me, you know that I LOVE glitter! So this challenge was right up my alley. This card is a very CAS card, and I am hoping to be able to have a chance to make a few more cards for this challenge, as I have a bunch of ideas rolling around in my head!

The patterned paper I used was just some scrap that I had laying around, and I can't remember who it is by. I think that it's October Afternoon, but it may be Cosmo Cricket? If you recognize it...let me know!!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Paper: Whisper White (SU), Patterned Paper (October Afternoon?)
Ink: Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip (both SU)
Stamps: Solid Stamp (Savvy Stamps) Sentiment (Impress)
Other: Peach Parfait Twill Ribbon (SU), Corner Chomper, Rhinestone. Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (SU)

Another Snowflake Card

Here's another snowflake card like the one that Katherine saw at Impress.I don't know how much I like it on the white, but I just wanted to see how it looked on something different besides the gray.

Gonna keep this real short. I have been multi-tasking tonight, (or as I like to call it, ADD-tasking), and I don't have a single thing complete. Scrap Calendars, Christmas Cards, Teacher Gifts, Treat Boxes, Client Gifts, Christmas tags....they are all in some stage of getting done, but not quite there!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Vintage Christmas

I found these sheets of all different vintage Christmas images. I think they are so much fun. I made a card out the the one you see easy, all I had to do was put it on some card stock and then I added a bit of glitter to her hat and the bottom of her coat!
The images are all different sizes.....I think they would make great cards, as well as gift tags. I'm thinkin' that I am going to use them for card class this month! I took one and mounted it on CS and then added glitter to the entire image. It turned out real cute. I haven't taken a picture of it yet.....

Hope y'all have a Jolly Yuletide!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

What Kath Saw

was a card that I believe looked very similar to this one.

A little over a month ago, my friend Katherine and I were in a little stamping/paper store as we were picking up things for Christmas Cards, crafts, mainly for the advent calendars.

A while later, while doing her mock ups for her cards, she asked me if I had seen a particular card on display in the store. I sort of remembered it, but it wasn't until I made another little trip to the store that I saw the card again and remembered.

The snowflake on the original card was much larger, but this was the only snowflake I had available to me since Kath is currently in possession of my huge snowflake stamp. The bigger stamp allows for more bling to be added, which I think looks better....but for what I had to work with, I think this re-creation turned out quite well.

Hope ya like it, Kath!
