The current challenge over at Jingle Belles is to create a card using three of something.
I used some Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches stamps to create this Christmas card featuring three cute little gingerbread people.
I stamped the house on beige check paper, then stamped, colored and fussy cut the other parts of the house, the gingerbread folks and the trees. I added a little glitter pen and some stickles for a little sparkle. It's less than five months to Christmas now, so time to seriously get started on those Christmas cards!
For our 4th of July family cookout, I wanted to make a shark fruit salad/centerpiece that I had seen in an issue of Taste of Home. So, we bought the fruit, my husband did the measuring and cutting while I did the fruit chopping and assembly. I think it turned out very cute, but what was the grandkids' favorite part of the whole thing? The red Swedish fish candies that were scattered around the base of the shark! :)
To document our masterpiece, I used the July 15th sketch from Stuck?! sketches.
Here's my take on the sketch.
Now I'm wondering if we could do a shark pumpkin for Halloween?????
Back with another card for the Jingle Belles ombre challenge. This time I used a candy cane stripe stamp and three red Distress Inks: Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Fired Brick.
After stamping the background and adding the sentiment, the card still needed something, so I added the stamped and diecut penguins, with their tree and gifts. Just to get more in the spirit of things, I had I Heart Radio's "Christmas in July" station playing.....glad I was home alone so my family couldn't roll their eyes at me!
The current challenge @ Jingle Belles is to create a card with ombre coloration. I don't know why, but this turned out unexpectedly difficult for me, which just made me more determined to get a card made, LOL!
This card was made with the Hero Arts Tide Pool to Navy ombre ink pad, along with the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I added some mats from silver glitter paper and a few crystals to add a little sparkle.
