PPA178 - Layered Labels

The Pals Paper Arts is having a color challenge, PPA178 which I wasnted to try so I combined it using a sketch created by Jen over at Deconstructing JenDS125. I must say I'm happy that the PPA challenge ends on Tuesday now versus Monday, so it gave me time to work on this card which was definitely a challenge, but I do enjoy challenges.  


Here is my card
Here I used Summer Starfruit from the in-colors DSP pack along with some Early Espresso cardstock and DSP from the Sweater Weather. Next, I went to work on the center and I love layers so I played around with different framelits and combinations and got the following. 

Started with the Deco Labels framelit in whisper white, than another deco label frame in Summer Starfruit, stamped the image (For You) from the stamp set: Layered Labels twice in Early Espresso and used the Apothecary framelit to help me cut it out. Last but not least used the oval punch to cut the center and pop it up using Stampin Dimensionals. 

Added a flower using the Flower Shop stamp set and matching punch. Here I stamped directly onto the DSP. Colored in the words "For You" using Crisp Cantaloupe and yes I did punch out 2 flowers and layered them on top of one another for a layered look. Last but not least added some basic pearls for final touch.

MOJO318 - Christmas Collectibles

Another week at Mojo Monday MOJO318 designed by Julee Tilman and for me it's once again Sunday when I get a chance to create and post my MOJO for the week. Since it's the first Monday of the month, it's also contest week and a chance to win a Verve stamp set of your choice, so out come the paper and stamps to create a new card based on this cute sketch.

Here is my card below: 
This time around I went with Cherry Cobbler and focused on doing a two tone color Christmas card. Actually, one color if you don't count white. This one is easy enough to re-create and fun to do using the Chalk Talk Framelits, Christmas Collectibles stamp set, matching ornament punch, and the Season of Style DSP paper stack. 

Also, 3/4" Chevron Ribbon (Cherry Cobbler), 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon, and Northern Flurry Embossing Folder.

The sentiment comes from the set: More Merry Messages and here I did use another color: Early Espresso. Also, the paper piercing tool along with the Essentials Pack to give the tag some details which add a nice touch.

For the finishing touches, I added some basic pearls, dazzling details, and Stampin Dimensionals to give it a 3D look. What do you think of today's card?

MOJO317 - Best of Christmas

Another week at Mojo Monday, MOJO317 designed by Julee Tilman . Last week I wasn't able to play so I wanted to make sure to get this week's sketch done since I love square cards and this sketch. 
Here is my card:
 
Love this set: Best of Christmas along with this wonderful DSP called Winter Frost Specialty. Here I used Island Indigo, Whisper White, and Pool Party cardstock for the circles and mat and thought to add some glitter by using silver glitter paper as well.

Sentiment comes from the set: Petite Pairs and what better ink color to use, but Early Espresso. This card is easy to re-create and mail out. What do you think of today's card? Should there be some bling or the glitter paper is enough? Almost forgot, I used the Northern Flurry embossing folder to add some white snowflake in the background.
