Runway Inspired Challenge - ric#50 Matthew Williamson

Here is the challenge photo of Runway Inspired Challenge - ric#50:

And here is the card I made for this challenge:

I used Hero Arts die to cut the flower on the white cardstock and backed up with a piece of clear acetate. Then I applied different colors of Distress markers on the small solid flower stamp and stamped on the card front. Stamp "God bless" on the top of the card. Attach foam dots on the back of the white cardstock and create a dimensional look on the card.

Here is a closer look of the horizontal view:

The Beauty of Snowflakes

I don't like snow (the real snow) but love snowflakes (the shape). As long as I saw the snowflakes stamps, snowflakes key chain, snowflakes cookies..., I just cannot resist myself to buy them. Do not even mention the necklace, bracelet, and earrings with snowflakes on them. Here is the snowflake pendant I made with 4mm Swarovski light sapphire AB crystal bicones and size 11 seed beads.

And here is a closer look at the beautiful snowflake pendant.

Then, I kept looking for snowflakes design patterns and found this great one to make a pendant and earring set. 

I used 4mm crystal AB bicones and size 11 seed beads to make this set. Below is a closer look - let it snow!

Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge

This week's Paper Smooches challenge is "Anything Goes". I decided to use the "get well" die and create a sympathy card with a cheerful tone. Here is the card I made:

The "get well" die was cut five times on the white card stock, then I stacked and glued them together to create a 3D effect. The word was colored with Copic markers.

Here is the look of the stacked and glued "get well":

And below is a closer look of the "get well" on the card:

CFC123 - Let It Snow Challenge

Here is this week's CAS-ual Fridays CFC123 Let It Snow challenge.

Below is the Martha Stewart's snowflakes stamp set I bought at Michaels (with two ink cubes packed together) and I planned to use this set to make a Christmas card with non-traditional Christmas colors. 

 Here is the card I made:

I applied fuschia, blue, and olive colors to stamp the snowflakes on the white cardstock and decorated with glitter glue on the snowflakes. Then, I cut a circle and backed with transparent card stock. I die cut the word "happy" with fuschia color cardstock and attached on top of the circle. Stamped the word of "Christmas" inside the card to finish it.

Cardstock: PTI (white)
Stamps: Martha Stewart, PTI
Ink Pads: Memento
Die: PTI
Others: glitter glue, transparent card stock
