Day 2 of 12 Days of Holiday Projects

Hey there! Welcome back to Day 2 of 12 Days of Holiday Projects – hope you enjoyed all the wonderful creations yesterday! We’re just a group of online crafty friends who love being creative. This time we’re doing a 12-day event to provide you with tons of Holiday Inspiration.

We’re making crafty projects using products we like and some of us are even offering prizes. Check each blog and the information there for what prizes are being offered and when the winners will be announced on that blog. You should check back here towards the end of the event – I’ve got some fun goodies to share :-)

At the bottom of this post is a list of all the crafty ladies participating in this event. Be sure to visit all the blogs each day for loads of fun Holiday craft ideas.

Today’s card is another simple one – using one my go-to holiday paper pads, Authentique Festive, and some classic Hero Arts stamps and Distress Markers for inking up the tree.

A vintage baby card

Hey everyone! Hope your Monday is going well. Yet another baby card to share today!

This sweet little vintage teddy bear is for our new challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge — things with tails. I’m sure everyone has a cute little critter they can ink up for this challenge so make sure to play along! I got out my new October Afternoon chipboard & paper for this card – I can’t get enough of that stuff!


This week we’re sponsored by the generous Simon Says Stamp.

A vintage birthday

Hey everyone!
Another quick post today – I’m exhausted & ready to call it a day (despite still only accomplishing about a 1/4 of my to do list, again!). I really wanted to squeeze in a card for the Play Date Cafe this week – I love the color combo. And, I really wanted to ink up my new Hero Arts stamp, Sew Stylish. The sketch is based on the current challenge over at CPS. This is also for the ‘Let’s Party’ challenge over at Lawnscapings.

A big birthday!

A fun, quick card today that is a real departure from my usual style. It is a simple sketch, based on the current sketch for the Sketch Sunday challenge over at Tiffany’s blog, I heart art, but the papers, colors and motifs are much more vintage than my usual style. The recipient has definitely influenced the ‘look’ – I think she will appreciate the vintage motifs.

I was inspired by Dawn McVey‘s card on page 78 of Paper Crafts Card Creations – so this card is also going into the ‘Source of Inspiration’ challenge over at Wee Memories. 

The color scheme of browns, blacks and creams also works perfectly for the ‘Coffee & Cream’ challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog!

Thanks for stopping by!

A busy day of card making!

Hi everyone & thanks for stopping by.
I’m so happy its the weekend. My other half is out of town and I’ve been card making all day. Our flat is a big mess, but it has been worth it. I have made quite a few cards for various challenges that I’ll be sharing over the next few days.
My first card today is for the Embellish Magazine challenge – creating a vintage card using green, rust and yellow. The card is also for the Card Positioning Systems Sketch #190. Vintage does not come naturally to me, but I gave it my best shot!
Here are the fabulous colors for the Embellish challenge:

And here is the sketch for the Card Positioning Sketch challenge:
Here is the first card – I used an old book to create the flower – something I’ve seen on quite a few blogs and in magazines lately. The layout is also inspired by a card I saw in Create: Stamping by Belinda Chang Langner.
Here is a detail of the flower – I die cut scalloped circles and inked the edges with Distress Ink.
I have another card to share as well – this one is also for the Embellish color challenge (again!) and also for the 2Sketches4You challenge – I love their sketches, but always struggle to finish cards in time to take part! Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch:
