Festival of Trees

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color splash challenge with the colors of Tempting Turquoise, Smoky Slate and Pool Party.  As soon as I saw these colors I knew I wanted to create a card with the Festival of Trees bundle.  Creating this card was easy with the Tree Punch!

I stamped the tree images with Versamark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder and embellished with rhinestones.  The background is Silver Glimmer Paper and the snow hill is Whisper White card stock.

2013 in review

Hello!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.  Thank you to all my subscribers for your visits!

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 62,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Happy Halloween My Digital Studio Card

For this week’s challenge I decided to play with My Digital Studio to create a Halloween card.  The colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Tangerine Tango, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green and Basic Black.  Don’t these colors just scream HALLOWEEN!  It was so much fun using the coloring tool to add different colors to the digital stamp images.  If you haven’t tried digital crafting, download the free trial version of MDS here.  You can create cards, scrap book pages and books, journals and whatever your paper crafting mind can conjure.

Create a scary or funny Halloween card, scrap book page or 3D item using these colors and upload your card to Hand Stamped Sentiments.   If you need more inspiration go to HSS and see what our very talented design team has created.
