SOS330 - Inlaid Wood Thank You card

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to make a quick Thank You Card - something that would take under 30 minutes
I used the Quilt Builder Framelits from Stampin Up and die cut the pattern 3 times from 3 different shades of woodgrain paper. Then I mixed the pieces and made an inlaid wood pattern - actually 3 different ones. The trick to get them stick down nicely, quickly and without big mess is to use Sizzix double sided adhesive sheets. No sticky finger and glue that leaks out :)

SOS320 Double Embossed Painted Harvest

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Emboss Like a Boss and we want to see both dry and wet embossing on your projects
I used my new Painted Harvest stamp and did a bit of emboss resist. Stamped the flower in Melon Mambo and Pink Flamingo and embossed it with clear EP. Then I brayered the background with Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay. The background bits are from French Foliage stamp set, stamped in Bermuda Bay. CS is Melon Mambo. For the background panel I inked the embossing folder with Pink Flamingo and then ran it througt the Big Shot.

SOS319 - Trendy Copper Christmas

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called On Trend and we want to see all things trendy. I don't really follow trends, but according to my friend Google trends in crafting include metalics, especially copper and that's something I can work with :)
I used a whole bunch of new goodies from our brand new 2017 Holiday Catalogue. Stamp is from Carols of Christmas stamp set, tree dies from Card Front Builder thinlit set and the delicious copper patterned paper is from Year of Cheer Specialty Paper Pack. It's even more festive and shiny IRL.

SOS 318 Fall Leaves

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Your Favorite Season - mine is probably fall - it's not so hot and I love the colors. And here is my colorful fall inspired card:
I used SU stamp set called Colorful Seasons and matching dies. Embossed the leaves in gold and colored them in with blender pens and inks - used the same colors to sponge the background.

SOS316 - Chillaxin' and Relaxin'

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Chillaxin' and Relaxin'. Pretty self-explanatory, right? Here is what I came up with:
I used a Penny Black stamp with a chillaxin' kittie and went from there - I think I might be in a blue phase, just realized I used the same colors last week :) Oh, well... so just keep chillaxin' and Be Yourself .

SOS306 - Vintage car layered card

This week at Shopping Our Stash we are focusing on masculine cards.
I made this card at my friend Julie's house -it has lot of texture - embossing, corrugated CS, distressing, die cuts + the little key thing -  it all works just fine with the vintage car. Perfect for Father's Day, retirement or masculine birthday.
