DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge, January 2015

     Thanks so much for stopping in. It's hard to believe it is already time for me to post another card for DCWV!
     I had lots of fun creating this card! I played around with the new inlaid die cuts technique for my glitter-tree. I used the tree that I first die cut from the foil tag as embellishment. I cut the tree in half and tucked it under the strip of diamonds. Pretty, no? Then, I inlaid the light teal glitter-tree in the tag. To make the tree show up better, I tucked a scrap of teal foil behind the openwork  of the tree. Using a third color might have made that unnecessary. But, I like it like this.
     There is still plenty of time if you want to play along with us. Here's this month's sketch and the link to find all the details: http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/2015/01/1st-stack-holic-challege-for-2015.html

     Here's what I used for my card:

DCWV - Foiled Cardstock Stack 6x6
            Noel Stack (Yes, it's Christmas paper. My rebellious side came
                               out to play. I just love her!)
            Adhesive Jeweled Sheet - the sheet is very easy to trim
Spellbinders - Whimsical Tree die
Our Daily Bread Designs - Friendship stamps
Horizon Fabrics -  sheer elegance ribbon 

May God be glorified in the work of my hands,
Pamela

Magazine Monday Challenge - Week 82

     So glad you stopped in! Today, for the first time I am playing along in the Magazine Monday Challenge (Week 82) over at Papercrafter's Corner.
     I was so inspired by the colors in this magazine cover. This card is a great way to use scraps. I punched these circles out of leftovers from DCWV's Solstice Stack. The sentiment is from TPC Studio.
     There are a few days left to play along with us. Here's a link with all the details for submitting your card. Check out this weeks inspiration photo below.

Sketch Challenge ODBDSLC220

          Thanks for stopping in on such a busy few days as we all prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior. Hope you all are surrounded with friends and loved ones.
     I made this card for the challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. This time ODBD gave us a sketch to work with (below).
     I used two die collections from ODBD for my card - Fancy Foliage and the new Asters & Leaves dies. I just got the Aster dies and have been anxious to find some time to play with them. They are as fun as I thought they would be. I'm so happy I got them. And, my favorite die of all time is the vine that comes with the Fancy Foliage dies. For this card I die cut a vine then cut it in half to give some balance to my card.
     The papers are Teresa Collins' Summer Stories 6 x 6. She has really been on my mind with the recent loss of her husband, so I thought I would use her papers for my card.
     Check out all the details here to submit your own card:  http://www.ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/2014/12/odbdslc220-sketch-week-2.html
     May our Lord richly bless you and your families as we soon begin a new year.
