A Different Color of Christmas

Here is a card I mad in non-traditional colors of Christmas.  In other words there is no red and green.  I made a folded Christmas tree with double-sided cardstock and placed it on the Kiwi doilly diecut made by Cheery Lynn Designs' die.   I am entering this in the Cheery Lynn Designs' challenge "Non-traditonal Christmas Colors".  My greeting is by Recollections and it was placed on a Spellbinders diecut.

Snowman on Layers

Here is a card I made for Christmas Challenges with Sketches using the sketch they provided.  I have really been getting into this site as it give me an opportunity to use my scraps and gives me a new way of giving dimension to my cards.

I have used my all-time favorite snowman stamp.  I have used it so much; it is one made by Hero Arts.  The greeting is by Stampin'  Up.

I hope you like my card.  All the layers really give the card body.

This is just a reminder that Just Some Lines is having a challenge with the theme "Give Thanks".  Just use of the JSL images and enter into the challenge.  Below is my inspirational card.for the challenge.

I used some scraps I had and stuck with brown tones for Fall.

Following a Sketch

Here is a card I made following a sketch on Christmas Challenges with Sketches.  It has multiple layers of Christmas paper, some die cuts and a digital image I have had for a long time, but I don't but know its origin.   The picture of the two tags are the ones that go inside the front of  the card.

Layer Upon Layer

I'm getting in the mood for Christmas.  Here is a multi-layer 6-inch square card.  I have been able to use a lot of scraps from Christmas past with this card.  My folded tree is the focal image of the card instead of a digital or stamped image.  I have my Christsmas message / greeting  inside.  This card is being entered in Christmas Challenges with Sketches.

Going Vintage

Here is a vintage card I made using a digital from Just Some Lines.  This is my inspirational piece for their challenge of Recycling and Repurpose..  I used a pair of earrings that I had made and I hadn't worn them in a long time.  I thought they were the perfect color to include with my flowers.

I am also entering this in Cheery Lynn Designs' challenge Vintage.  Cheery Lynn dies are the Celtic Fire Rectangle Frame and the Build a Flower #2 and Embellishment  #2.  These are the very first flowers I have made with the Build A Flower dies.  I am very pleased how they turned out.

Butterflies for Remembering

1,500,000 Innocent children perished in the Holocaust.  In an effort to remember them, Holocaust Museum Houston is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies.
The butterflies will eventually comprise a breath-taking exhibition for all to remember. The exhibition dates will be announced once an appropriate venue has been selected. The Museum has already collected an estimated 1,350,000 butterflies.

Below are the butterflies that my card group is sending to the museum.  You may want to join the Butterfly Project.  For more information check the Houston Holocaust Museum web site.
