The Savvy 7 Blog Hop

This is our first hop, and I hope all of you will take time, to visit each of the hoppers. 

Out theme this month is Snow Flakes! I love snowflakes, but not the mess you get with snow so this will be lots more fun that shoveling I promise!

 Anywho... on to my card!

I got started by selecting my cardstock for the project.  I went with Pretty Pansy, Cool Pool, River Stone, and Whip Cream for my cardbase.  Next, I wanted to add some texture, so going with an embossing folder was the perfect fit! Happy Holidays had snowflakes and trees, which remind me of the terrain in Oregon during the winter.   I added a bit of Whip Cream ink to soften the look. Then, I die cut a snowflake from the steel rule die Holiday Elements again in WC.  I dyed some of our Whip Cream twine, with some of the silks, in Cosmic Grape, Silver, and Turbo Teal to get that awesome deep purple color.  For my sentiment I went with Text Happy, the sayings are super cute and doing it in Whip Cream on the River Stone looked amazing!  For the finishing touches, the cut rhinestones were a perfect touch. I hope you've enjoyed my stop on the hop...

CYCI#143 Sketch & Giveaway

 Happy Holidays my Friends!

I decide to keep as true as possible with the sketch, I designed it to be clean and cute!

The only exception  I used my sentiment as part of my design, in the square area instead of below it.

I also kept the products simple, and easy to recreate

Starting with the New Year stamp set.
I added the black color to the star from the Amazing Accents, they are wood shapes! Totally loved it!
For the banner in the back, I used some of our Licorice Sparkle Tape, and again I used it as a border on the card base to create some simple fun!

Don't forget that this challenge is 3 weeks long, instead of two!
Giving the Design Team plenty of time to enjoy the holidays with family and friends!

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

As a bonus, I am doing a random giveaway...

CYCI#142 Colors by Wynn

OMGee.. has it been a busy two weeks! 

Hey, everyone I've got a simple design with a bit of wow thrown in for fun!
I started with my Geo Burst die from Fun Stampers Journey,  which I did in Brush Silver cardstock.
Next, I added some Pretty Pansy cardstock to highlight areas as an inlay.  The Joy is from Holiday Script which sold out and no longer available, on Whip Cream cs and Black Licorice ink. My base is a top fold. With a couple finishing touches Black Sparkle Tape and some BL Twine!

I hope you enjoyed my design for this challenge!

Until next time,

CYCI#141 Sketch

When I put this sketch together, I thought this should be easy... well it wasn't as easy as I had thought! Needless to say... it's not my best work, but I kept true to the sketch, and I'm sure you'll be kind! lol!

Been sharing most of my work on Facebook and Instagram so stop by either of them, so see more!

:) Super Simple... BAH! lol!! 

Here's what I used,  Striped Love background stamp, in Oatmeal Cookie ink from Fun Stampers Journey.  I added a sentiment from the  Holiday Script, in Black Licorice ink and added a layer of white fun foam which I cut using the matching die to the Peace sentiment.
Got some layers or Whip Cream, Oatmeal Cookie, and Black Licorice and a sliver of Candy Apple.
For my dots, I used some of the glaze dots and colored them with Cranberry Splash silk.

That's it for today, check out CYCI for the team's amazing designs

Until next time

CYCI#140 Welcome back

Welcome back!
We've revamped the challenge just a bit, and they will go for two weeks at a time now!

I've got some of my favs from Fun Stampers Journey for you, on my card.
I started with my square dies which I created a frame with. Then I worked on the top layer, which I added lots of Gold Silk on Butter Cream cardstock. My middle layer and card base are in Oatmeal Cookie and Butter Cream. I colored my square frame in Orange Creamsicle and added some Pineapple Smoothy in the background.  My leaf is from the Snapshot Frames die set, I cut three of the leaves, added some Oatmeal Cookie, Cranberry Bliss, and a touch of Orange Creamsicle to it.  Glue them together, to create a thicker piece, coated it in J. Glaze and added a simple bow from twine. 

That's it for this card, I hope you will join us

Until next time

Wreath FSJ

I had a lovely weekend! Facebook was full of fabulous cards from my friends, and I was having a bit of crafters block!  Well, I'm glad to say that after a bit of crafty chat with Jeanne, about some projects I want to accomplish... something clicked.. and my brain was full of ideas! :)  Thanks, Jeanne!!! You Rock!
Wow... I am loving how this wreath turned out! :)
I used my snapshot frames on the holly leaves and berries - in Turbo Teal, Lemon Grass, and Brush Silver.  For the sentiment die, Joy I used Whip Cream! :)
The cardbase and layers are in Turbo Teal, Whip Cream, and Corrugated!

I added some silks in Electric Lime, and Silver!

I really enjoyed how this turned out... and glad to see that my mojo has returned!
