Scrapy Land Love/ Valentine Challenge

Time to get a head start on Valentine's Day cards and participate in the the Scrapy Land challenge. The theme is Valentine's Day plus use any brand of die from any of the forty brands that Scrap Land sells. Go over to the Scrapy Land Blog and check out the fabulous inspiration from the designers on the team.

I don't usually make shaped cards but this die by Cheery Lynn just seemed right for one.  I just layered and popped up the layers. I made the red flowers from the Cheery Lynn Gardenia die.

Double D Challenge

Have you had a chance to visit the Double D Challenge Blog  If not why don't you go on over and check out the challenge and the beautiful designs from the challenge team. Here is the inspiration board for this challenge.  These pictures make me want to bundle up and take a walk in the snow.

Jan 20 - BRRRR!!

Here is the card I came up with for the challenge.  I used lots of white and snow flakes.  I started with a frame that I backed Poppy Stamps Mod Flower die cuts.   I put a piece of Swiss dot vellum behind that to create that snowy winter look.  I used a Spellbinders oval die cut that I embossed with a Swiss dot embossing folder.  That was topped by the Poppy Stamp Snowflake Oval Frame cut from white glitter paper.  The trees are from IO and they have been dipped into white glitter.  The little church is from Frantic Stamper and the roof and ground around the church is covered with glitter.  I added a few small pearls around the fame and mounted on a white base.
