Playing catch up once again!

Hi everyone!

I have two cards to show you for two of my favorite challenges from this last weekend! The first one is for the Inspiration Challenge on SCS. This time we took our inspiration from Franz Porcelain and I chose this gorgeous piece here! And of course I had to use the new Our Daily Bread releases to create this card.

I stamped and clear or white embossed bunches of poinsettias and cut and cut and cut! I lightly sponged the centers with Mellow Moss ink. I punched out several Martha Stewart twig thingies for my greenery. For the background I embossed with a snowflake folder, and I cut out an oval with a Spellbinders die. I white embossed the scripture. I sponged the edges with white ink and then I sprayed the background and the greenery with Glimmer Mist, Marshmallow for the background and Pearl for the greenery. And then I started 'building' my card. I added ribbon and red rhinestones to finish. I used Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue cardstock. The Chocolate Chip layer is sponged with white so it looks gray! Anyway, I love layering these poinsettias! I used all three of the new sets for this card.

And here is my second second card to share with you today!

I made this one for the Featured Stamper Challenge. The honor this week went to the CAS (Clean and Simple) queen, Jen!!! She has an awesome gallery and blog! But of course, as you all know, one of my biggest difficulties is CAS! haha! So I chose this card to CASE and while this is CAS for me, it's not so CAS!!! I kept the same theme and colors but used a different stamp set, added an extra layer of Kraft, cuttlebugged my stamped background, changed the ribbon placement and added Martha's snowflakes with bling! I also made a square card instead of regular size because I can't stop making square cards!!! Congrats Jen on your special week!!!

Thanks everyone for visiting again today!
