Simply Merry Christmas

I wanted to try non-traditional with today's wreath. I also wanted to make it quick. I die cut the wreath with two SB circles and the bow is die cut from dark brown card stock to coordinate with the brown sentiment and chevrons.

Sandy Birthday and Christmas

For the Color Challenge over at Splitcoaststamps our hostess presented these colors to create a card or project.

I did a little distressing with white chalk ink on the edges of the flowers. 

Stamps: memory box sentiment Paper: white tagboard, sand, green and dark red card stock scraps Paper Size: A2 Ink: DI forest moss, VersaMagic Cloud White Accessories: Momenta flower die, punch bunch small sun, Elizabeth curvy leaves die, Taylored Expressions "Quatrefoil" die, gemstones 

Second Project

I glued an old Economics book page to card stock and die cut Tim Holtz Holly and branch. I sponged with Distress inks peeled paint, fired brick and walnut stain. The background is partially stamped with Penny Black “Letter Background” in white using a Faber-Castell PITT White artist pen directly to stamp. The splatter is from a Wink of Stella White shimmer Brush pen and Cloud White VersaMagic was used around the distressed edges.

 Memory box sentiment, Penny Black bg 
Paper: Sand cs Paper Size: A2 

Happy Haunting!

Better late than never. Just wanted to post a few Halloween cards. Next year I will start in July so that they can be delivered before November!
