StampTV challenge STVCSP3

                            My card today is for a color challenge. The colors are ocean mist, green apple and white. For my cards focal image I used the trees from the Gina K  Blessed is the Season stamp set. I stamped them out in Memento Cottage Ivy ink and then in Color Box Frost White pigment ink. I heat set that ink and then covered the trees with Ranger Stickles in Icicle. I used a piece of dp from the Linen Closet stack and cut a oval out of the center with my spellbinders petite ovals dies and attached it to my image. I then used my Cuttlebug to emboss the Scrollwork image to my ocean mist cs and also used the petite oval dies to cut a larger oval so my dp would show thru, and I attached it all to the green apple cs. My ribbon is from Offray and the bling is Queen & Co., my sentiment is from Gina K stamp set Holiday Greetings. Thank you for stopping by to take a look and please leave a comment. Have a great day!

Magnolia-Licious Challenge

                                           This card is for the inspiration challenge this week. I really had to think about this one,and I have to say my inspiration came from the paragraph below the picture that said " YOU CAN DO IT''. I almost gave up but I knew she was right, I could do it. So, my card base is from my stash, I don't know who makes it, the dp is American Crafts  Merrymint  stack, the stars are also American Crafts , Christmas Foils, My focal image Tilda Santa's Little Helper is mounted on Spellbinders labels 10 and that is mounted on labels 14, the cs is Gina K, The ribbon is Offray which I attached a christmas tree brad from my stash to, the flowers are Prima, the string of beads attached to the stars  is  also from my stash, my sentiments are from Flourishes Christmas stamp set a Gift For You. I colored the stamp with copics and used stickles on the hat trim and I used a Martha Stewart punch but its a little hard to see it now. Thanks for stopping by to take a look. Please don't forget to leave a comment, and have a wonderful day!!

I used my Spellbinders lables five to cut out the corn and also cut out a lacey circle with the navy paper. Assorted prima flowers were added and I cut a maple leaf out with my spellbinders die and used a MS punch for the greenery, Marvey for the curly Q's and the ribbon is from Offray. I hoped you enjoyed looking at my card today,and I love to hear any comments you have. Thanks and have a great day.
