Tri-Shutter Patterned Pines

For today's Limited Supply Challenge on SCS, the challenge was to use a Christmas tree on a card. I've wanted to try one of these Tri-Shutter cards, so I decided this was a good time to make one. I used Patterned Pines, Holiday Best and Medallion
sets, and Ruby Red, Garden Green and Whisper White cs & ink. The snowflakes are stamped with Platinum Shimmer Paint, and all edges are sponged with the paint as well. TFL!

Trick or Treat Pull-Push-Twist&Smoosh Box

This adorable little box is for today's 3D Demo Challenge on SCS. It's made from a 12x6 sheet of Cast A Spell dsp, and the Trick or Treat image is from Holiday Best. Directions for this box are available for Stampin' Up demos on the website, but I resized it to fit a King Size Snicker's bar. TFL!

Happy Birthday Jon!

This is for my son Jon's 14th birthday today. Extreme Elements & Extreme Guitar sets along with Contempo Alphabet. Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry and Real Red classic ink, plus Black Stazon, stamped on Glossy White. Bermuda Bay card base. Guitarist is highlighted with Platinum Shimmer Paint and Real Red classic ink - looks like he's under stage lighting! Jon took one look at the card & said "Cool card - now do you need it back so you can take a picture?" Nah, I've already taken a picture!

Twick or Tweet

Just a few more cards I made using the new Twick or Tweet set in the Holiday Mini Catalog. Colors are Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black on all 3.

Noel Pizzaz

I made this card for today's Ways to Use It challenge on SCS. The challenge was to jazz up the sentiment on your card.
I used Punch Pals and Contempo Alphabet sets & replaced the "O" in "Noel" with a snowflake to jazz it up. The colors are a bit non-traditional, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay instead of the traditional red & green for Christmas. The snowflakes & poinsettias are highlighted with Dazzling Diamonds, and the card is accented with White Grosgrain and Pretty in Pink Satin ribbons. You can view the original challenge here:
