Color Challenge - Jingle Belles Rock

The latest challenge at Jingle Belles Rock is a color challenge!  It's called "an orange in your stocking" and yes, I do remember getting an orange in my stocking!  LOL

This is the inspiration photo:
What I see when I look at the photo is the stark white background, with the vibrant and cheerful accent colors of melon/orange and shades of green.

So this is what I came up with!



Stark white background which I embossed with snowflakes!  Popped up my accent colored design (Unity Stamp Co. Ornamental Season) which I colored with my Tombow Art Markers and some star dust stickles! I love the contrast!

Let them SING!

Hark the herald angels sing!  This is the prompt at Jingle Belles Rock this week......music!

I managed to make two cards today, both completely different from the other!  I printed this background paper, found a pad of tags I had completely forgotten about and the sentiment is cut directly from a recycled Christmas card!


While waiting for the background paper to print, I remembered that I had some musical notes washi tape.....so into the washi tape storage I went a digging!  I had purchased these mini doodle-pops during a closeout sale forever ago and thought they needed to come out!


This brings my total to 13 cards!  Hubby going out of town this week....there may be more coming!

Merry "LITTLE" Christmas!

At least that is the latest prompt at Jingle Bells Rock!

Inches (1") and Twinches (2") to be featured on your card.  Mine are 1 3/8" squares.....so it's in between! 


I used one of my favorite My Favorite Things sketches (slightly modified) and a square punch.  The squares are punched from an old Christmas card from a previous year.  Very simple, very easy!  Another one for the year end stash!

Missed it by THAT much!

Well I missed the Jingle Belle's prompt for this week's card by an hour and a half! LOL  If my family didn't need dinner, I would have made it in time!

All kidding aside, I did finish the card, it's not on their challenge page, but it's finished and going into the stash for December, that was the ultimate point of me joining this blog challenge!  So here it is, in all it's glory!  


The prompt this time was for a colored image.  I used Holiday Joy from Unity Stamp Co.  I watercolored it using my Tombow Art Markets, added some stickles and a tag.

Text Me!! Part 2

EDITED TO ADD THESE TWO!  I made two more cards for Jingle Belles Rock!! 


used scraps for all, stamped sentiment is Stampin Up Alphabet Soup.  Homemade dots and buttons from stash!  That's three for the week!  I'm on a roll!  Can't wait to see what the pile looks like in December!

Text me!

This week's prompt at Jingle Belles is "text me!"  Simply put, use some text!   Letter stickers, dictionary pages, word patterned paper or just have your sentiment be the star!  My entry uses a recycled Christmas card and some "texty" paper!


Thanks for taking a look!  Hoping to make another this week......

Love you more than cupcakes!

When hubby goes out of town, I get to craft more often!!  I've made several cards so far this week, and more to come!


Submitting this for a "Kraft/Birthday" Challenge at Unity Show & Tell FB page.  I used this stamp for their last challenge....not realizing that I would be using it again!  It was already inked and sitting out on my craft desk, so what the hey!  It's a great stamp!

I'm also entering it into the MFT Sketch Challenge for this week.  Although it's another brand, I love their sketches and use them as a go to for most cards I make!  Love their sketches!

Here is the sketch for reference:


Thanks for looking!
