Country Christmas - Pals Paper Arts 232

Country Christmas - Pals Paper Arts 232

Welcome to another edition of the Pals Paper Arts Blog Challenge! Today we have a fabulous sketch from the very talented Margaret Moody:

Doesn't it look like fun??

I knew the minute I saw this sketch that I wanted to showcase the Stampin' Up! stamp set Ornamental Pine with it. It took just a few minutes to decide on papers and inks.

Country Christmas - Pals Paper Arts 232

To ink up the focal image stamp, I stamped the whole image in Garden Green, took a baby wipe and wiped off the ink from the stem and inked just the stem up very carefully in Early Expresso. The Christmas greeting is from the stamp set And Many More. It was inked up with Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder and then heat set with the Heat Tool.

I just about have Christmas preparations wrapped about you? I'm off to finish those last minute details, I hope you will pop on over to the Pals Paper Arts blog to see the inspiration from our other talented designers!

Can You Case It #48 - Pictogram Blossoms

Good Morning and welcome to a very interesting challenge today! Here is a fun and challenging color combination from the design team at Can You Case It:

This was definitely an interesting color combination for me! I'm sorry the pictures seem so dark, the camera seems to be picking up the darkness from the Blackberry Bliss. Here is a better shot of my lovely Coastal Cabana rhinestone jewels:

I love the simple vase full of blooms with their sparkling centers! For my twine, I unwound some Coastal Cabana Baker's Twine and some Natural Linen Thread and then wound them together for a bit of a rustic feel.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you pop on over to see the inspiration from the rest of the Can You Case It design team!

Can You Case It #47 - Season of Joy

Welcome! I hope you all have enjoyed your long weekend full of family, food, shopping and decorating! Time to take a break and create something! lol

I'm back today with another sketch challenge from the Can You Case It design team:

I'm still working on my Christmas cards and thought this sketch would be perfect to showcase the Wondrous Wreath stamp set:)

I love the neutral background paper and decided to keep it simple with just pops of color in green and red. I stamped my wreath in Crumb Cake and then added highlights in Garden Green. A simple bow and sentiment in Cherry Cobbler really pop.

I finally succeeded (somewhat( in capturing the shimmer I added to the green leaves and to the bow. Wink of Stella is just the perfect accent and makes the bow look like it's made of crushed velvet. Very pretty.

I hope you have a minute to pop on over to the Can You Case It blog and check out the fabulous work of the other design team members! We would love to see you play along with us!
