Warm Wishes...

 Hi crafty friends!
It's time to share a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog.  The theme is "Hot Beverages" and hosted by Team Darlene.  Link up your hot beverage (coffee, tea, latte, hot chocolate) projects and you could be a prize or creative winner.
Here's some inspiration...
  And here's the prize being offered...

Impression Obsession Beverage Die Set

I dug deep into some old stash for this card...
Warmest Wishes
The front panel on this card is cut from a 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper I've had for a very long time.  It's matted with coordinating red cardstock inside and out.  The napkin base and top are cut from two different dies and have added dimension with foam tape.  I fussy cut a cup from remaining scraps and gave it dimension also so the candy cane would tuck in without an issue.  The sentiment is computer generated, cut with a banner die and tucked into the cup along with the candy cane.

Peace for the Holidays

Good morning crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing a vintage inspired Christmas card I created yesterday for several challenge blogs I've been following.  
 This 6" square card has layers, texture and dimension created with die cuts and foam tape.  I chose a neutral tan color as the card base to accent the pine cone boughs in the patterned paper.  The focal image is cut from a lovely shade of burgundy coordinating paper and the tan base color.   I love the defined embossing on the die cut.  The Peace sentiment is cut three times and layered for dimension.  I adhered a multi loop bow and some beaded foliage above the sentiment as the final embellishment.

 Today, I'm sharing a card that I made for a recent challenge that requires using a die cut and the negative space that it came from.  I've had this awesome pine tree die in my stash for quite a while and it was perfect for the design I had in mind.


I used a beautiful shade of green as the base and front on this A2 card.  The tree is cut and adhered to the left of the die cut area.  I backed the negative opening with a mat of Christmas paper I've been hoarding.  A gold metallic bird is the only embellishment.  I love the simplicity and elegance of the finished card.

Enjoy the Season

 Welcome back craft friends!
Today's share is a snowman shaker card.
Enjoy the Season
This A2 card was fun to make.  The card base is covered with flaky, pearl like glitter paper.  I used white brick paper from my scraps as the background for the window shaker.  The snowman is a digi printed on photo paper, fussy cut and has added google eyes.  The glass is a piece of transparency adhered to the frame.  I added two layers of torn glitter paper between the window pane and snowman image before adhering the window to the brick background.  The sentiment below the frame is hand stamped.
