I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Weekend Challenge Cards

It's Monday again already. Yikes!!! The weeks are flying by. My weekend was fairly productive again as far as stamping goes. I was able to make cards for three challenges.

First up is a card for Taylor's Friday TESC133. I again used the Snow Day Project Pantry kit for my papers. I just love the colors! I paired it with the Winter Wonderland stamp set.  As you can see,  I used the snow flake dies and eyelet border die from TE. The sparkly brads are from the SU Holiday Mini catalog and the EF is Cuttlebug snowflake.

Next, a card for Jen's Sketch For You To Try challenge. I do believe that this is my favorite of the three. Maybe it's the traditional Christmas colors, or maybe it's just the way it all came together, but I do really like this one. I again used one of Taylor's project pantry kits for the papers as well as one of her new Christmas stamp sets. They are, Sparkle and Cheer stamp set and Tinsel and Twig Project Pantry kit. I used three different Spellbinder dies and the little tag is SU.

Finally, a card that works for two more challenges, Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch 92 challenge and Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge, Act 55. Okay, I really struggled with these colors. I pulled out all kinds of paper and stamp sets and finally decided on this little thing. Sparkly and Bright is one of my all time favorite SU Christmas sets. (I think it's the reindeer). For the greeting "Sparkly & Bright," it's stamped in black ink, then I went over the letters with a black Copic Spica pen. In RL, it's very sparkly but not so much in the photo. Santa's beard is done with a clear glitter pen and the reindeer's nose is Christmas red stickles. The patterned papers are various retired SU Christmas DSPs. A few more Spellbinders dies and some SU black satin ribbon finish it off.

I hope you all have a marvelous week, and thanks for stopping by,
