Hooray Winter Birthday ~ CCMC541, GDP170

Hello stampers!  Today's card is for Create With Connie and Mary's newest color challenge.  Now that Christmas is over I guess it's time to move on to making other kinds of cards.  I always enjoy making Christmas cards and feel a little bit of a let down this time of year.  This color combo is nice and cheery though, and just right for a birthday card!  
I used the set Broadway Birthday.  I love the Hooray image that you can add the dots to.  It's a ton of fun!  
I think this theme would have looked better with another embossed background but I had this card base laying on my desk already embossed with the Cable Knit embossing folder, so I decided to not let it go to waste.  This could totally be for someone's winter birthday!
Anywho, I hope you'll be able to join us at Create with Connie and Mary for this week's challenge!
I also chose to use the sketch from Global Design Project #170 .

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Broadway Birthday
Ink: Gorgeous Grape, Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue
Ink: Same
Accessories: Cable Knit TIEF, Adhesive backed sequins, Decorative Ribbon Border punch, Wink of Stella
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Noel Evergreen Spray ~ CCMC539, SIP179, ATSM, SUOC212

Hey there stampers!  Today's card is for this fabulous Christmasy color challenge put together by Create with Connie and Mary.  
I chose to go with some greenery and the big Noel from Christmas Pines.  Christmas Pines and the coordinating Pretty Pines thinlits have long been a favorite of mine!  The white diecut branch is from the Petals and More Thinlits set and I painted it with Champagne Shimmer paint.  I topped my greenery off with a triple bow made from the braided trim and then finished the card of with green adhesive backed sequins.  
I love how simple and rustic this card is.  
Other challenges I'm playing along with are:

Here you can see some of the shimmer painted on the white branch.
The background is a woodgrain piece of DSP from Festive Farmhouse.

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Merry Patterns Merry Christmas ~ HSS304, GDP167

Hi there stampers!  Today's card is for the new Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge!  
I've got a mix of old and new on this card--the deer from Merry Patterns, a limited time stamp set released last year, is old as well as the "Merry" diecut, the red stitched ribbon, and the sprig of pine.  The new consists of the Festive Farmhouse DSP, the Corrugated TIEF, and the adhesive backed sequins, which are really handy, btw!
I'm also playing along with Global Design Project 'Tis the Season theme challenge.

This deer was a cast off from another project, as well as the corrugated circle, Merry diecut and pine sprig, so this card only took a matter of minutes to put together!  It was serendipitous all these pieces laying on my desk happened to come together!

I hope you'll be able to play along with us at HSS!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
