Stencil Fun Challenge - HEARTS

 Hello Everyone!

It's time for another fun challenge over on our latest blog ...  Stencil Fun Challenge !

We decided to add another challenge blog to our list of challenge blogs and this time will will be about using our STENCILS.  This challenge will be a MONTHLY challenge and will begin on the FIRST TUESDAY of each month.  It will always be an ANYTHING GOES with STENCILS challenge but we will be offering an OPTIONAL THEME

Here is the theme that Diane has chosen as our optional theme:


 For right now, it will just be Diane & I sharing samples to inspire you.  We have decided to create one project following the theme and a second project that fits into the anything goes.

Here is my 'HEARTS' card . . .

 I have used a fun stencil I bought through Scrapbook.com called 'Scattered Hearts'.  I've used TH distress oxide 'Candied Apple' ink and created my sentiment using alphabet letter dies also from Scrapbook.com called 'Festive'.  Easy Peasy but says A LOT!

For my second card (Anything Goes),  I created this fun 'just saying HI' card.

The stencil used for this card is by Picket Fence, called 'Ocean of Fish'.  And we all know there are so many beautifully colored fish in the ocean ... hence my TH distress oxide ink coloring.  It appears I inked my fishies from the other side of the stencil lol.

The sentiment was computer generated then die cut using one of the Tutti Designs 'Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangle' dies.

We hope you'll come join in our fun and GOOD LUCK!!

As always . . .

Peace on Earth Challenge #33

 Hello Friends and welcome back to my blog! 
SO happy you stopped by!

Today I have a card to share for the new challenge over on the PEACE ON EARTH CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE BLOG.  Of course the theme is Anything Christmas and we hope you'll come join in the fun! 

Here's a fun inspiration board we've created to help get you started ...


I must admit, this one had me stumped for awhile but once I decided on the heart I wanted to use, then it was just a matter of playing around with this and that until I came up with something I liked then I put it all together on the card front.    (secret ... I started out with a red card base and white heart lol)

The elements used on this card are very old and possibly no longer available.
Those items are:

Spellbinder Holiday ' 5x7 Holly Frame'  (S6-040)

Cheery Lynn Designs 'Lattice Heart & Vines' (B368)
Stampin' Up 'A Cardinal Christmas' (sentiment)
