SCS Falliday Fest - Kathleen Curry's Blue Christmas

QKR Stampede challenge #214 - Wild West DT card

This should probably be called the "Not so wild West".  I chuckled when I saw this in the QKR Stampede store - I am thinking it would be a cute card for teen guys - a hard age group for me.  At any rate, the challenge at QKR Stampede this week is "Wild West".  You may enter up to 3 times through Thursday Oct. 27.

SCS Falliday Fest - a glittery winter scene for Yvette

This is similar to a card I made a few weeks ago.

SCS Faliday Fest - Texture by LMCaree

The Falliday Fest at SplitCoastStampers continues - any one can enter, and there will be prizes.  Deadline is Oct. 30- Falliday-fest-Challenge-.  Lori wants us to show some texture!  The bg is distressed stripes embossing.  I used a piece of Decorative Mesh behind the image.  (I mentioned earlier - that mesh jumped into my card at Dollar Tree!)  It ravels easily, but I hope it will stay intact as it is fastened behind the image.  Punched stars (glitter cs) and metallic ribbon complete the card.  The image is QKR Stampede, colored with water color pencils.  Yes, you have seen this image a lot - I try to use the same image on most of my Christmas cards.

SCS Falliday Fest - Texas Grammy - Spread and Shine

I have another entry for the SplitCoastStampers Falliday Fest challenges.  Thanks, Bev, (Texas Grammy), for another fun challenge.  To create this background, I used VersaMark on the cs.  I added gold embossing powder, and swirled around a bit of black - I wanted only a few subtle splashes of black. This was then heat embossed.  I got the uneven result I was hoping for.
Both stamps are Verve.  Ink is Eggplant.  Bits of gold edged ribbon and Petaloo flowers complete the card.

SCS Falliday Fest - luvlee's snowy tree challenge

QuickCutz tree embossing folder; Cuttlebug Snowflake and Swiss dots embossing folders; loose glitter on tree, silver metallic paper ribbon; shimmery silver cs; blue cs, punched stars from glitter cs.

SCS Falliday Fest - Dini's Masking - Christmas

For the background:  I punched stars and used them as a mask.  Next I simply pressed (fairly lightly) the ink pad on to the white cs.  Voila!   A starry background!
I was at the Dollar tree store yesterday, and this roll of Decorative Mesh, another sparkly metallic ribbon, as well as a roll of burlap-like duct tape -just jumped into my card.  The mesh will be a little harder to use than I anticipated as it ravels very easily and will take a bit of effort to attach, but I think I will be able to make good use of it for a special added touch.  The image, which I watercolored, and sentiment are from QKR Stampede.
