CCC19: Merry & Bright

Each Monday, the rest of the Creative Challenge Club (CCC) design team and myself, will be showcasing our cards from our current design sketch on the Creative Challenge Club blog and our own individual blogs, mine is showcased below along with all the other Notes on Design.

The best part is we want you to play along each week by linking your creations on the same post that features this weeks challenge (CCC19). You will find the challenge for the week on the Creative Challenge Club blog. If enough participants enter during that specific week, a prize will be given to one lucky winner!

Stampin' Up! - CCC19: Merry & Bright

Besides this being this weeks Creative Challenge Club, this is the first card in my 2014 Holiday Card Series! This simple card uses brand new holiday product from the 2014 Holiday Catalog. Haven’t seen the holiday catalog? Download the catalog via the catalogs section.

The Designer Series Paper used on this card is from Santa & Co. and to be honest, this is not my favorite in this year’s catalog and select other demonstrators would agree. The paper you see actually has some has snowmen on towards the bottom, but the design of them is not my cup of tea; so I just ended up using the fall snowflakes.

To create the snow look, I took the the Whisper White card stock and tore the top of it towards me, used the 2-Way Glue Pen towards the top and added Dazzling Diamonds to add some sparkle; my “bright” in the card.

Come back Friday, for card number two in the 2014 Holiday Card Series.

Happy Booday

Good Friday stampers! It’s Friday and this means a couple of new things. Starting this Friday and moving forward, I am hoping to share another project with you all! Since I’m not longer doing video tutorials for most cards now (reason below), this gives me the chance to share more. As of right now, just one extra share, but here’s hoping to adding another day starting at the beginning of the year.

As for the reason of not doing videos is, because most of my cards have and always will be clean and simple, I believe with a photo and the Notes on the Design, you could easily CASE (Copy and Share Everything) any of cards. Now, there will be exceptions to this and when a video is needed I will get one up. This does not mean my YouTube channel will be shutting down, I do have a few ideas for my channel, so stay tuned.

Now that is all out of the way lets talk about todays card project!

Stampin' Up! - Happy Booday

This is a birthday card for my landlord who’s birthday is on Halloween. Pretty cool if you ask you. Since she has no family here in town, I thought this fun little card would put a smile on her face.

This card uses two stamp sets, one in which is retired. If you know me, I try not to use any Stampin’ Up! products that are retired, because they tend to be difficult to find. In the end I decided to use the stamp set because I wanted it to say “Booday” and not just Birthday.
