Snowflakes, Swirls, Mittens & Gifts 32

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 17, 2009 @ 6:00 PM | , , ,

Hi Everyone! (2nd post on Saturday) I hope all of you are having a great weekend! :) Are you feeling inspired yet to play along with the Just Us Girls color challenge this week? This week the Just Us Girls Challenge is a beautiful color challenge hosted by Dana as you may have already seen. If you haven't already, be sure to visit the Just Us Girls site & see what my girlfriends have created to inspire you to play along with us! I made these wintry cards while combining 3/4 challenges! In no particular order: 1. Forsketch inspiration: Kazan's fabulous Sketch 37, 2s4y37 & Cheryl's Bonus Sketch 2. For color inspiration: Color Throwdown #64, CTD64 (I don't have Baja Breeze so I substituted Bashful Blue), & 3. the SPCC #19 challenge was to use Embossing. Be sure to stop by & visit all these challenge sites to see what these girls have created! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Here is my 1st card using Kazan's Sketch 37:

I inked up the PTI mittens with SU Bashful Blue ink, stamped, then cut them out. Using a few glue dots, I adhered them to the embossed center multi-layered scalloped circle.

This week there was a BONUS sketch to play with designed by Cheryl:

I wanted to use the same color combo & stamp sets, so here is what I created using Cheryl's BONUS sketch:

I love those lil' jingle bells used on cards :) I tied a big button on top of the gift, to serve as my bow.

Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Winter Swirls, Snowflake Serenade Paper: SU Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Whisper White Ink: SU Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, VersaMark Sprinkles: Spellbinders Long Scalloped, Scalloped Circles & Circle nesties, Offray ribbon, PTI buttons & from stash, SU cord, brads & jingle bells from stash, VersaFine EP, Cuttlebug Snowflake die & EF
