Holly Christmas Wishes

I picked up this holly set at a yard sale today for .75 cents! I love the faded edges of the stamps. And even though it's just a single layer card, I'm pleased with how it turned out. One lesss Christmas card to make this year!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #262

I love Jen B.'s simple yet elegant sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I tried my best to keep it "clean" by  embossing one sheet of card stock with a Darice folder and layering it with dimensionals over a second sheet of white card stock.

The holly is from the CTMH set called "A Holiday" and the berry sentiment is from MSE!'s set called "True Meaning Tags." The inks are Love Letter and Cottage Ivy, bothe from Memento. I find that SU! Inks are often too thick when fine details are involved, but they're great when you need a strong solid stamped image. Real Red card stock is from SU!

Number of Years Masculine Birthday Card

My son turns 20 in two days! Wow! Anyway, I needed a special card and this is what I came up with. I turned it into a masculine card by using darker colors, but I had to sneak a little Tangerine Tango in there to liven it up a little.

It seemed to need a little something, but embellishments are usually so girly (and fun)! But that wouldn't do here. So the key seemed to fill up the blank space nicely.

I really like the way it turned out, and hopefully he will too!

Embossed Flower Card

I like the final look of this card, but it seemed difficult to get to the final product. The idea started with a card on Pinterest, but because I didn't have all the supplies, I got this!

The flowers are die cut from a Sizzix Bigz Die, then embossed with various folders. The burlap is from a paper pad, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! Botanical Builder Card

I needed to create somthing tonight, but couldn't get the creativity going. So I turned to Pinterest and copied this great card. The reversible Botanical DSP made it so easy too. The pinner used a button, but I thought the flower would make a better statement. The sentiment is from Hobby Lobby.
