Silver Evergreen

Here's My Card for the Paper Players Challenge #122.  The Challenge is to use gold or silver on a card.  So this was the perfect inspiration for my own Christmas cards this year.  I used the Stampin' Up set "Evergreen", so that's where the name comes from.

I stamped the tree outline in Whisper White Craft Ink (however it is hard to see in the picture), then stamped the overlay in (retired) Silver ink on Night of Navy cardstock.  The embossing folder is also retired  and called Snowflake. I added a frame of silver glimmer paper to complete the "bling" theme while still keeping it CAS.  The star was lightly coloured with Night of Navy ink refil and a sponge dauber.  A Night of Navy ribbon adds the final touch.  I hope you like it!

Eat A Cupcake!

Here's My Card for Mojo Monday 267.  I was away for all of October and since I've been back I've mostly been planning for upcoming classes by making Christmas Cards.  I was asked to make a Birthday Card so I decided to look to this week's Mojo Monday Challenge as my inspiration.  Here's the sketch:

The inside of the card says "Eat A Cupcake - Happy Birthday!"  This card uses the Cupcake Builder punch with the Create a Cupcake Stamp set as well as the hostess set Carry On.  The DSP is from Floral District.  The colours are Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade.

Come back soon!
