Challenge #42

The above card is for the challenge over at Bah!Humbug!, which is asking for a card suitable for a man. CHNC is asking for a scene. This one will fill the bill for both challenges. I was thinking of my dad when choosing colors and patterns, so this will probably be going to him. All papers (including card base and matting) and ribbon slide are from sei's Alpine Frost collection. The stamp is an Inkadinkado rubber stamp, and the ribbon is from my stash. Walnut distress ink was used to stamp the image.
Another fun set of challenges! Thanks for taking a look!

Challenge #41

For this week's challenge at Bah!Humbug!, we are focusing on food. CHNC has us using baubles, or something that hangs. So, again I have combined these two challenges and came up with a very simple card. (I'm quite pressed for time this week, since my daughter had surgery yesterday. I am posting this from her hospital room, while she sleeps - we hope to be going home tomorrow.)
The base card is an aperture card from an old kit that was in my stash - from 2008 (I've covered up the date with the Happy Holidays sentiment).
Gingerbread house, gingerbread man, and trees are from a Michaels 3-d sticker set.
Hanging "baubles" are glittered star brads with the brad part cut off, and hanging from the opening by white heavy thread. When the card is open a little, the stars hang in the cut out area, giving it some movement.
Very simple, but should meet the requirements. I haven't missed any of the Bah! Humbug! entries and I didn't want to miss this one, either, so this card is a quick one. Hope you like it, and thanks for taking a look!

Challenge #40

At Bah!Humbug! this week, we are glittering our card and CHNC has asked for a house.
I have used an Inkakinkado rubber stamp for the image. I stamped onto pure white card stock then cut out using a Nestie. I added stickles for snow on the ground and Martha Stewart snow glitter on the roof and big pine tree. It was then placed on black glitter paper and rhinestones were added in the corners for some extra bling. The sentiment is a rub-on that was added to another Nestie cut-out. ( The glitter doesn't show up very well in the pic, but it really is there.)
Thanks for taking a look!

Challenge #39

This week's card challenge at Bah!Humbug! is to incorporate the nativity into the design. I don't have any nativity-related stamps or paper, but I did find some stickers at Hobby Lobby. The one I used is from the Rejoice Nativity Foil sticker set by the Paper Studio. The sentiment was cut from a printed vellum sheet and inked with gold. I just added gold foil corner pieces to finish it off. Very simple and easy! I would also like to enter this into CHNC's challenge which for this week is to make a card suitable for a man or boy.
Thanks for taking a look!
