Christmas Greetings

Greetings! We are just a few days past Christmas, and I hope that each of you enjoyed your time with your family. It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, we are challenged to create a card with only stamping.  Please see the parameters allowed over at Inkspirational for specific details!

Although, I consider myself a stamper, and nearly all my cards include stamping, I did not realize how I over time have added layers of things other than stamping to my cards, so this truly was a challenge for me!

As my card was made some time ago, I hope you will forgive me that it is still a Holiday card! Images are all by Stampers Anonymous. Please stop over to Inkspirational for inspiration by the rest of the Design Team and then we hope that you will share a creation of your own with us!

Thanks for dropping by and I wish each of you a very Happy New Year! Best, Yvonne

Christmas Greetings

Greetings! The weeks roll by quickly, and once again it is time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Our theme is "Celebrating." It can be a project around celebrating Christmas, New Years, Birthdays, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
I hope that you will stop over and check out all the beautiful and inspiring projects by the rest of the Design Team and then consider making a project of your own to share with us.  Remember, we are a stamping challenge, so the focal point of your project must be stamped.  Also, one lucky participant will be selected to win a stamp image provided by our gracious sponsor Ink Art Designs
For my own project, I began by sprinkling Bister crystals in blue and brown onto a water color panel.  The pup carrying an evergreen branch is a new to me stamp from The Frantic Stamper. The sentiment is a stamp image by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous and the little boy is a paper doll by Tim Holtz for Idealogy. The corners are hand drawn and a bit of Stickles for sparkle complete my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I truly value your visits and comments.  Best, Yvonne

The Lost Generation

Greetings! The weeks are whizzing past and already it is time for another challenge over at Inkspirational. The theme this time around is a photo inspiration depicted below!
For my inspiration piece, I created a card using a set of stamp images by Artistic Outpost using the colors reflected in the inspiration photo. You will want to pop over to Inkspiration to check out the inspiration pieces of the rest of the Design Team and then consider creating one of  your own to share with us.
Thanks for dropping by! Best, Yvonne

We Wish You A Merry Christmas!

Greetings! It is time again for a new theme over at Eclectic Ellapu.  For the month of December, our theme is Christmas. It can be a gift or anything festive.

I am in card making mode, so a festive Christmas card seemed the path for me.  The stamp image is by Artistic Outpost and is one of my all time favorites. I added Stickles around the edges of the image, matted the image with some green glitter paper and added the prepared panel to the front of a card base. A bit of bling in the upper corner finishes off my card. I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team has dreamed up to inspire you and then create a piece of your own to share with all of us. 

Thanks for dropping by.  I truly appreciate your support. Best, Yvonne
