A few for Christmas

I have been AWOL for a little while, but I am back for now with a few challenge cards.
I used the colors for The Play Date Cafe
And the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch 
The background is a digi dp that was slate on white that was misted with eucalyptus spray ink.  Added the chevron washi tape.  Stamped the tree in slate on a green striped piece of dp and added the sentiment stamped in rose colored ink.
The November challenge at Stampendous Impressions is to use glitter.
I won this beautiful image from Stampendous and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  Stamped on kraft cardstock then colored with Touch Twin Markers.  Added touches of glitter to the leaves and the berries. 
Core'dinations Hard Core Crop Challenge on Tami Mayberry's Blog is to make a 10 minute card.
Core'dinations White Wash was embossed and sanded.  Stamped the tree and sentiment in a coordinating ink.  Die cut the image and sentiment and layered onto a white card base.  Very quick and easy.
Wow!  Long post and I appreciate you stopping by!

The challenge at Crafty Friends Challenge  is to use a sentiment as the main focal image.

I decided on a CAS style.  Stamped the sentiment from Gina K's Tag You're It! set in Memento Lady Bug ink and added the circle of sparkly dots with Stickles Xmas Green.  Punched it out and layered it on a red punch slightly larger.  Added strips of washi tape to a Neenah Solar White piece and layered onto a red base.  Very quick and simple.
Thanks for visiting!

Ferns in a Stone Vase

Another one for The Play Date Cafe color challenge

Smeared Distress Stains in Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo on ivory cadstock and ran some water over it to blend the colors a little.  When dry, sprayed it with Terra Cotta color mist.  Stamped the vase with Versamark and heat embossed with Tim Holtz Distress ep in Vintage Photo giving the vase a stone look.  Stamped the ferns and the lace border.  Stamps by Gina K - Lacy Borders and Vogue Vases.
Thanks for taking a look!
