Melonheadz, Winter Challenge

New challenge this week for Melonheadz is "winter"!! Are you ready for the cold weather? Maybe my card this week will remind you to dig out your warm cap and mittens. :)

For my card this week, I used the Season Winter set. I just love these cozy mittens and hat. (And now that I see my card, I realize I used the same images last winter! Guess that confirms my love for this sweet set! LOL)

I love the soft colors of this background paper and wanted to mimic them on my hat and mittens. The vellum behind them helps mute them even more so the cute hat and mittens stand out. The sentiment is by My Favorite Things from the Warm and Fuzzy Friends stamp set.

We hope you'll join us for this challenge, and you might even win a digi stamp set for your next challenge entry!! See details on the Melonheadz Friends blog here.

My Favorite Things, Color Challenge #56

We should be having much cooler temperatures and preparing for snow where I live by this time of year, but it has been so warm and sunny, I don't know if Mother Nature is going to catch up. No matter, though, I'm enjoying this unseasonably warm stuff immensely! 

This little penguin, though, is having the time of his life snowboarding in the cold. Isn't he cute? My Favorite Things has done it again with these cute little frozen friends. 

aaaaaand down he goes!

Melonheadz, Add a sentiment

Happy Monday! It's time once again for the Melonheadz Challenge. This week we are adding a sentiment. Super simple. :) Here is my card using the Season Fall set.

I knew I wanted to make a wreath of the pretty maple leaves from the Happy Fall set, but as I was designing my card, I decided I wanted to have it "hanging". This awesome sign is part of the Gone Fishing set - works great for my wreath, don't you think.

Melonheadz - Halloween

For this week's Melonheadz challenge, you can choose 1) Halloween or 2) use green, orange, black and purple colors or 3) both! I did two cards for this challenge, because I really love making Halloween projects. Hope you like!

First is a spinner/slider card. Super fun and easier than it looks.

Up next is a Halloween party invitation. I used the Witches Clothesline set for this one.

If you look closely you can see I added sparkle pen to the dress.

Hope you'll join us! See you in the gallery.

OCC Wild Card Class, Day 5 - Gift Giving

For today's Online Card Class I wanted to make something a little different than a normal gift card envelope. Don't get me wrong, I love all the gift card envie dies that I do have, but just wanted a different version I guess. Anyway, here is my project for today's class. This adorable little gift bag by My Creative Time is super sweet and can be used in many ways, not just for gift cards, even though it is small.

You can get a better perspective of the cute bitsy size in this closer-up view of the gift card. Fun project!

OCC Day 3, pop ups

To make my pop up card for today's Wild Card Class, I used adorable images from My Creative Time. Because the inside is where I want the focus, I did a very simple front design.

Cobblestone stamp by Bo Bunny.

The mummy is just too cute for words, and I love the sign post.

OCC Day 2, Movement

Today's class is all about cards with movement. I made this slider card for grandboy, Logan's, birthday. He's obsessed with zombies and this cute Peachy Keen zombie kid is perfect! :)

The bats are My Creative Time, the graveyard is a Quickutz border die, and the slider opening is My Favorite Things.

I stamped "pull" in tiny letters from a My Creative Time alpha set after I took the pics. Inside says simply, "happy birthday" but on the back I stamped Got Brains? from another Peachy Keen stamp. LOL The sentiment on the front is also Peachy Keen.

Copic markers, foam tape, clear embossing powder, circle punch
