Most Wonderful Time

Feeling that holiday crunch? I know I am. Glad to have a little ‘me’ time and create a card for Watercooler Wednesday this week.

This is our layout challenge –

15193664_10154838246644489_68370249377557205_n

Pretty simple I think. It’s a 2 week challenge because of Christmas!!!

I designed this simply cute card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Wonderful Year, Work of Art, WWC99, Christmas

I made it just in time to mail out!

libbystamps, stampin up, Wonderful Year, Work of Art, WWC99, Christmas

Pretty simple as you can tell. A one layer card as the sketch required.

I did add dimensionals though! It really added that one last touch!

I hope you can find a little ‘you’ time to play along with our challenge this week over at Watercooler Wednesday.  We’d also like you to stop by to see what all we have created too! Working diligently right up until Christmas!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Wonderful Year, Work of Art
  • Card Stock – Real Red, Whisper White
  • Ink – Real Red, Cucumber Crush

Hanging Out for Merriest Wishes

It’s time for a new Create with Connie and Mary sketch today!

We have a nice, simple clean design to work with this week –

ccmc437

These are the kind to put into your ‘go-to’ sketch file!

I went with a Christmas card today –

libbystamps, stampin up, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Merriest Wishes, Merry Tags, CCMC437

I had lots of these supplies sitting on my table already and I just received a last-minute order in. Time to play!

libbystamps, stampin up, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Merriest Wishes, Merry Tags, CCMC437

I love this sweet little ornament die! I cut it out of the Silver Foil and layered it with Whisper White – a dimensional sets them apart.

libbystamps, stampin up, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Merriest Wishes, Merry Tags, CCMC437

I used thick twine to hang the ornament. I flipped the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate over to the silver side to compliment the design.

Simple. Elegant. Stunning.

How would you describe this? I love to know!

And, we’d love for you to check out the other designs at Create with Connie and Mary and join us! Playing along with sketch challenges is sooo much fun! Such great inspiration!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Merriest Wishes
  • Card Stock – Cucumber Crush, Whisper White
  • Big Shot –  Merry Tags
  • Ink –Tuxedo Black Memento

Happy New Year

Soon it will be Christmas. Then, in a flash, the new year!

So, it got me to thinking…….Today, is another Watercooler Wednesday challenge. And, here is our sketch –

14731153_10210167494599221_1220232291057557037_n

A very nice color choice!!!! Quite festive!!!!!

I immediately though, New Year, and came up with this –

WWC98, Frosted Medallions, Layering Ovals, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Silver Foil, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush

……and, it S T U N N I N G in person!

WWC98, Frosted Medallions, Layering Ovals, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Silver Foil, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush

I started with a base of Early Espresso. A Silver Foil layer. Whisper White with the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (L O V E this stuff)!

WWC98, Frosted Medallions, Layering Ovals, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Silver Foil, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush

And, of course my sentiment!!! The last added detail was coloring it in with a Wink of Stella Pen for a little added shimmer.

Perhaps I just might make these instead of holiday cards this year?????

I’d love to read what you think! Please leave me a happy read!

And, don’t forget to check out the other Design Team creations at Watercooler Wednesday and PLAY along with us!

Simple Joys of Green for Christmas

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted for try Stampin on Tuesday. Although we have a new challenge every week, the design teams participate every other week.

This is my week. Here is the great sketch to inspire us –

Challenge #301. Theme : Twinkle, Twinkle

I really, really liked this sketch!

I went with this idea –

libbystamps, stampin up, Christmas Pines, Botanical Builder Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, This Christmas DSP, TSOT#301, Christmas

I love traditional red and green for Christmas, but……..green and black – too pretty as well!

And, for my twinkle, twinkle? Sparkly glimmer paper counts too, doesn’t it?

This card is just simply – F U N !!! I love it! It will be a quick one to replicate for the holidays too.

Please join our challenge either on our blog, or our Facebook page. You might want to see what the other designers have created too!

Stunning Silver Santa

I’ve got a wonderful card share for you today. It was designed for Create with Connie and Mary.

Here is our color challenge for the week –

ccmc436

Some real pretty, pretty colors!

I wanted to make a card that really showcased these colors. And, this is what I thought was fitting –

libbystamps, stampin up, Detailed Santa Thinlits, santa, CCMC436

An elegant Santa card!

If only the pictures would just show how pretty this card is!

libbystamps, stampin up, Detailed Santa Thinlits, santa, CCMC436

I decided to go with a 5 x 5 card, a little bigger than the Santa Thinlit. The dimensionals between each layer add some ‘pop’ to the card.

I used some silver and white twine from a previous Paper Pumpkin. It was just the last detail the card needed!

So, what do you think? Isn’t it lovely? I’d love to read what you think!

You can always head over to Create with Connie and Mary and see what the other designers have created. Perhaps we will inspire you to join us this week!

Supplies –

Snow Way, it’s Wednesday Already?

A wonderful sketch I must say!

I did have to think about this one. And in no time, I came up with this sweet number –

libbystamps, stampin up, Snow Place, Snow Friends Framelits, Candy Cane Lane, WWC97, Christmas, snowman

Clean. Cute. Simple. Wintry. Easy.

libbystamps, stampin up, Snow Place, Snow Friends Framelits, Candy Cane Lane, WWC97, Christmas, snowman

I added the sparkly black glimmer paper that has long since been retired, but I had a scrap to make a hat from! Waste not, want not, right? Same thing with the red foil scarf too!

libbystamps, stampin up, Snow Place, Snow Friends Framelits, Candy Cane Lane, WWC97, Christmas, snowman

For the tie, I once again found a piece of retired soft whisper white baker’s twine. This was great stuff!!! It’s really inbetwwen the two twines Stampin’ Up now carries.

I must say, I love how this turned out! What do you think? I’d love to read your comments!

And, check out what the other design team members created at Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and play along with us!!!
