Stampin' Up! Happy Scenes

Good evening and welcome to my 'Macho Monday' post (my attempt to make more cards for men!):

For today's card I used the fabulous HAPPY SCENES stamp set:

And the co-ordinating HEARTH & HOME thinlits dies:

This set is so quick and easy to create a scene for Spring, Autumn, Halloween or Winter and I have lots of ideas for more cards!

I would like to enter the GLOBAL DESIGN PROJECT:
Where the challenge this week is to CASE ( copy and share everything ) the designer Louise Sharp's fabulous card. I have used the colours for my inspiration and also I have made a Christmas card. Strictly speaking I have actually CASED two cards- also THIS  one made by the super talented Brian King. I used Brian's idea to make a chair rail from a second window die cut - thanks Brian!

The other challenge I would like to enter is LESS IS MORE  where the theme is to use something shiny and because I used some snippets of gold foil on my card I would like to show the playmates over at PIXIE'S SNIPPETS PLAYGROUND.

And lastly I would like to enter PAPERTAKE WEEKLY where the theme is 'It will soon be here' .

So that's my card for today - thanks for visiting!


Stampin' Up! Sparkly Seasons Bundle

Good afternoon and happy Sunday!
I have another Sparkly Seasons card to share with you today:

I am not completely happy with this card for two reasons - 1. the Crystal Effects has made the red and green run and 2. I should have placed another silver ring around the globe as I can see smudges of Crystal Effects :-(

I used the fabulous SPARKLY SEASONS BUNDLE:

I also used the SOFTLY FALLING SNOW embossing folder:

I would like to enter the following challenges:
GLITTER N SPARKLE 'add lots of glitter and sparkle' 6 days left.
LESS IS MORE 'something shiny'  5 days left.
SCRAPES OF LIFE 'Rudolph day challenge'  
CRAFTY HAZELNUT'S CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE 'stick it down' 5 days left. ( I have stuck down my top layer and the globe silver bits! )

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fabulous day!


Stampin' Up! Remarkable You

Good evening and welcome to my 'Feminine Friday' post:

I am really into black and gold at the moment and I think it is because of the Stampin' Up! WINTER WONDERLAND DSP:
For my card today I started off with the sketch at FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES:
My flower is from the gorgeous REMARKABLE YOU stamp set:
I stamped it with Versamark ink pad and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder - there are a few stray speckles but I quite like the effect!
Next I covered the flower in  Crystal Effects and while this was still wet I sprinkled it with Gold Stampin' Glitter.

As I used lots of snippets on my card I will also enter PIXIE'S SNIPPETS PLAYGROUND:
Pixies Crafty Workshop

Thank you for joining me today and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
