The Card Concept #83

I'm back  today with another card.  This one is for The Card Concept and their Parisian Postal challenge.  I knew I had  paper from a card kit I got a long time ago that would work beautifully as the base of my card.
The sentiment was also part of the SSS kit.  I mounted the die cut on fun foam and heat embossed the sub-sentiment.  The envelope is a PTI die cut from kraft and the hearts are from Lawn Fawn.  I think this fits in the clean and layered category.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope your week goes smoothly.

Merry Monday #269

I'm running late with my card for Merry Monday.  I quickly made it last night and am posting before church this morning.  It's a color challenge.
Stamps from Neat and Tangled, inks from Altenew, aperture from Pretty Pink Posh.  The tree is silver embossed and the ornaments clear embossed for shine you can't see here.  Maybe this photo is better.
I did this in remembrance of the aluminum trees back in the day.

Thank you so much for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

CASology #279

Gray is a popular color in home decorating and is also the cue word for this week's CASology.

I thought the color would be appropriate for a sympathy card and used all three SSS gray cardstocks and the ferns from PTI's Meadow Greens.

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

Time Out #98

I love the photo inspiration at Time Out this challenge.
Rustic is my thing so I started with that.
I ordered the stag stencil from Sarah Gray who just happens to be the guest designer for this challenge.  First I stamped some Desert Storm paper with Altenew's wood pallet, cut it with a die from CPD and inked the stencil with HA Unicorn White.  I had to add in some of the bright color with my sentiment. I have another card for Time Out that I'll post later.

Thanks for dropping by.

Less Is More #358

The sun is shining.  Oh happy day!  Even though there is quite a bit of snow on the ground and the temperature is hovering in the teens, it seems much better when the sun shines. 

Speaking of shining,  the one layer challenge at Less Is More this week is candles or something depicting light.
I used an MFT stencil with Squeezed Lemonade DI behind my PB lamp post that I colored with Distress Markers directly onto the stamp.  The platinum embossed sentiment is from Neat and Tangled.

Thanks for dropping by today.  You also added a little sunshine to my life.
