Get Inky Challenge 20: Snow

   It's time for the last 2013 Get Inky Stamps by Blue Moon Creations inspiration post.  Their final  challenge of the year is one of my favorite things…SNOW! 
   I used the 2013 Holiday set, but used two different sayings to create my greeting.  I used Snowmany Thanks and Seasons greetings to come up with Snow Greetings.  I accomplished this by using wash tape to cover the part of the saying I didn't want…leaving just what I did.  A few snow flakes and some glitter and the cute card was done.
   I have very much enjoyed my time with Get Inky, and seeing what each of you have created.  I wish you all a happy 2014!  I hope you'll stay with me to see what I create in the new year.

2nd December ScrapStuffz Inspired By Challenge

     Welcome back everyone!  We're having two reveals over at ScrapStuffz this month, and it's time for my second.  Remember, you can use one, or both, to do entries this month!
     I was instantly inspired by the two trees, and I used two pictures of our Christmas tree from 2012.  One is of hubby and son while we hunted one down, and the other is it all decorated. After that I wanted to mimic the different picture boxes by using different papers…something I really struggle with.  I am always afraid of the patterns being two busy, but I ended up loving the effect.
    The title was cut from several different Cricut cartridges.  The wreath for the O was inspired by the wreathes in the inspiration photo.  The letters were welding in the Cricut Craft Room, and the tree was topped with some red stickles.
     I hope you'll come over and join us!

Blast Off Thank You Card

Hi everyone…I'm back today to share with you the thank you cards I made for our little ones third birthday.  We had a Buzz Light year birthday so I wanted to do something space related.  My new Stampin' Up Blast Off set ended up being the perfect thing!

I really like how this came out.  The space ship is popped up from his passenger really giving the card some depth.  The thank you is flair that I made using my epiphany crafts circle machine.  I have to say I think that's my favorite tool right now!  The only thing I wanted to do differently was put a picture of each child who attended as the passenger, but I couldn't get the size just right.
As much as I love the card...if I ever say I'm going to make all my birthday thank you's again…you have permission to smack me!

Scrapstufffz Inspired By 1st December Reveal

We're doing something new over at ScrapStuffz this month and having two reveals!  You can use one or both inspiration pictures giving you double options and double chances to win.  Our first picture is so much fun!

I was instantly inspired to scrap a few photos of a house in our area that goes all out for Christmas.  The man has every inflatable decoration you can think of.  He gives candy canes and hot chocolate all through the season, and it's one of my little ones favorite things to do…every night if you'd let him! I used a brighter red and green sine the photos are at night, and the lights on the truck are so bright.  I had some border trim that was lights, and was happy to be finally find a place to use it!
So come play along…I can't wait to see what inspires you!

Get Inky Challenge 18: Onward and Upward

     I'm back again to post inspiration over at Get Inky Stamps by Blue Moon Creations.  Their challenge right now is Onward and Upward.  
     This challenge really got to me!  I made a card probably two months ago and let it sit as I wasn't exactly happy with it.  The more it sat the less I liked it, and couldn't bring myself to write the post…so I started over. Boy am I glad I did.  I love this card!
   I misted white paper with Heidi Swap tinsel to give a night sky twinkle effect, and then used the stars and Happy Birthday sentiment from Get Inky's sailboat set.  To finish it off I printed and colored their digi rocket in fun kid colors and voila…a card I love!  I probably love it so much as we just had a 3 year old Buzz Lightyear party hear and my house and I must hear "To Infinity and Beyond" 300 times a day!
    What are you all creating for this months challenge?
