a couple of cards to share...

Hello friends!!  Everyone ready for Christmas??  I think I'm pretty much ready.  Just a few more cards to send out and a few presents to wrap and I'm done!  Have a couple of cards to share today for a couple of different challenges:  PTI Make It Monday:  Camouflaging Die Cuts, CASology:  Snow and Freshly Made Sketches.

First up is my card for CASology and Make It Monday.  Instead of inking up my cardstock the way Laura did in the video I did some stamping using images from the PTI set Winter Swirls and inks from Close to My Heart (Grey Wool, Twilight and Outdoor Denim).  The snow die and sentiment are from the PTI Wonderful Words: Snow set.    The grey cardstock is Simon Says Stamp Fog.



The second card uses the Freshly Made Sketches layout, stamps from Simon Says stamp and patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Studio Gold 6x6 pad.  The circle image from the SSS set Sparkle & Shine was stamped using Delicate Golden Glitz ink.  At first I just trimmed out the entire circle, but as I started layout things out I decided to trim out the center, as well.  I like how it looks.  The sentiment was stamped using SU!'s Baja Breeze ink.  Some gold baker's twine from SU! and a few gold sequins finished things off.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SSS fog; PP:  Teresa Collins; Stamps:  PTI and SSS; Inks:  Delicate Golden Glitz, Stampin' Up!; Close to My Heart; Baker's Twine:  Stampin Up!; Sequins:  SSS; Dies:  PTI

Love the colour combination of your snow card, and the fact that you used a pattern rather than blending for the MIM challenge! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

So sorry for my late post...Both of your cards are really beautiful! I love your take on Laura's technique, and how you flipped up the edges of your papers on your 2nd card! It really adds so much pizazz!
