Our Daily Bread Design 3 circles

Our Daily Bread Design challenge is to use circles or squares. I used the new circle ornament bundle and matching die for this center easel card.  I embossed three of the large ones in gold and then used the different size dies to cut them out. The center sentiment is also from ODBD Christmas blessings and I used the ODBD die for it as well.  The side dies are a Marianne die.  The leaves and poinsettia are from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I added a few pearls to finish the card.

Cheery Lynn Nontraditional colors

The challenge on Cheery Lynn this week is to use nontraditional colors for a holiday card.  I love this Lace Peace frame.  I cut it out of glittered card stock and backed it with a holographic paper.  I added the holly leaves and poinsettia to finish this card.  All dies can be purchased at Cheery Lynn.

Cheery Lynn Tag you're it!

The challenge at Cheery Lynn this week is to make a tag.  I started this tag with the Cove silver stacker rectangles.   I layered that with the scalloped cove rectangles in a pretty gold paper.   I added a pretty snowflake 2 up in the corner with a gem in the center.  The Christmas candlelight was added next with lots of holly leaves,   the leaf flourish, and the poinsettia strip.   I know this looks really flat and that is because Microsoft hasn't fixed the problem with all the Sony products yet and I can't use my camera to take a picture, I had to scan it instead.

Flourishes grab a cup

I made this pretty colored card for the grab a cup challenge at Flourishes.  I used their coffee with friends stamp set but unfortunately I think it is discontinued.  I emboss the cups in gold and colored two of them with copic markers. I used Spellbinders rectangles for the shapes and stamped the sentiment with walnut distressed ink. I added gold borders and ribbon and flowers to finish the card.

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 246 sketch

Wow after many hours and frustration I found out that the new windows 8,.1 is NOT compatible with Sony cyber shot cameras, isn't that nice.   I hope they send a fix through soon for this.  I did however get this scanned on my printer so I could participate in the sketch challenge at Flourishes.   I started this 5x7 card with a green card stock, then added a square of deep red and the ribbon along the side. The pretty die cut is the Adorning squares by Spellbinders.  This pretty image is from Flourishes Holiday Topiaries collection.  I colored it with copics and added stickles to the dove for some sparkle.  I used the Season's greetings from this set also and added a pretty poinsettia from Cheery Lynn dies.
