Tuesday Color Challenge at The Outlawz

I hope you all had a very good Christmas and got lots of crafting presents!
Our color challenge at The Outlawz this week was posted on Tuesday. 
I am a couple of days late adding it to my blog but I think that
is understandable.
Here is the color paletter:
The twist is to make a CAS (Clean & Simple) card.
 I used 3 of the 5 colors and of course
the gorgeous digi is from our Sponsor for December,

Gerda Steiner Designs.
and now for my card.

Please visit us at:

and join in the fun!
We look forward to seeing you!
Thanks for looking and happy crafting.

Christmas Trees

My friend brought her Silhouette over on Saturday evening and we
had such fun cutting out the Christmas Trees!
When checking the challenges at Stamptv I discovered that my trees
would fit perfectly!
The green tree is the cut out part which I embossed using:
Couture Creations Sugarplum Ball and brayering it with
Distress ink.
The right tree is the Negative.  I used an old Christmas card to fill the gap.
Both cards use GinaK Stamps ' Seasonal Labels'
Thanks for looking!
Happy crafting and of course
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

Peace on Earth

This Christmas Card is for a challenge at
Repeat Impressions DCC1218 ~ Last Minute Christmas Card or Tag

It is a quick & simple card to make - a last minute Christmas Card
which is the challenge!
The bauble stamp is a Spellbinders Stamp which I got in a magazine that I purchased.
I have embossed it in white, fussy cut it and added sticky foam dots for dimension.
The design paper is from Kaiser Kraft which has music embossed in gold.
The sentiment is what I wish for the coming year.
Thanks for looking
Happy crafting!

Retiform Card

I saw a video by GinaK on how to do this style called Retiform.
I liked it so much I had to make a card.  I thought the Cream, Pink & grey would
look lovely so I used the Vintage stamps from IBS.

Thanks a Million

My card today is for a challenge at:

Stamps I have used are from Inspired by Stamping: Hexagons, Garden Seed Packets
& Trendy Circular Sentiments
A friend used her cameo to cut the hexagons for me.
The flower is also from the Garden Seed Packets which I have fussy cut
and colored and mounted with foam.
In the top right corner I stamped the hexagon stamp and embossed it with
 Zing Brown Sugar Embossing Powder on a piec of designer paper. 
I did the same thing with the script stamp.
Thanks for looking!
Happy crafting.
