Friends for Christmas

I am having so much fun with challenges.  I made this card for a friend for Christmas but could be used for a sister or daughter.  The picture is from Wee Stamps "Friendship" from Sylvia Zet.  I colored this picture with Copic Markers and used red colored Stickles throughout the image and card.

I love the Cherry Lynn Design Horizontal Boutique frames.  Now, I have all of the Cherry Lynn Design Horizontal shaped frames since they go well with most Cherry Lynn's doily frames.  I used the Square Horizontal Boutique frame in front of Cherry Lynn Design's Dainty Dutch Deco frame.

The poinsettia was made using two company's brands, Cherry Lynn Design Holly Leave and Sue Wilson Design Festive Collection Mosaic poinsettia die.  I used Color Box gold pigment ink around the leaves.   I added the Wild Orchid Crafts gold berry spray in the middle.  The holly branch is from Sue Wilson Design Festive Collection Holly Sprays.

The green and red printed paper is from Stampin Up. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Birthday card Wee Stamp Iris

The stamped image is from Whimsy Stamp Iris designed by Sylvia Zet .  I colored her with Copic  and glitter markers.  I glued Stampin Up coral colored ribbon around the oval picture before adding Spellbinder Oval Regalia frame.

Rather than making my flowers, I used mostly Wild Orchid Craft flowers with Cherry Lynn Design Olive Branches.    The doily behind the white rose on the right is from Cherry Lynn Design Dainty Dutch Deco Doily that comes in two doilies.   I used the center doily in this set.  The pink doily on the far left is Cherry Lynn Design French Pastry Doily and the heart is from Cherry Lynn Design Two Of Hearts die set.

 I used Stampendous Pearl embossing powder on the heart to bring out a shine in the heart.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Stampin Up Perfectly Pen stamp set and was cut out with the Spellbinder Elegant Labels 4 die.  Also from Stampin Up is the cream flowered ribbon and lace ribbon on the bottom part of the card.  The antique brad on the coral ribbon is also from Stampin Up.

The paper is from Graphic 45 Once Upon a Spring Time.

The heart and key embellishment is actually a earring.

Fall Leaves

I just received the Impression Obsession Leaves die. I cut three sets of leaves from this die using Stampin Up mustard colored paper and sponged the leaves with Stampin Up purple, brown, yellow and red ink.

I shaped the leaves with my fingers this time since some of the leaves were so small rather than using my McGill flower shaping tools.  I cut two Memory Box Woodland Branch die cuts and glued the branches behind the autumn leaves.

The ribbon came from Stampin Up and I made the bow using the Zutter Bow-It-All which I use for form my bows.

I colored the Whimpsy Stamp named Oak Tree Girl with Copic Markers.

The frames came from Cherry Lynn Designs Horizon Square Boutique Stacker and
Dainty Dutch Deco.

The gold printed paper behind the brown Cherry Lynn Square Boutique Stacker is from Graphic 45 'Time to Flourish'.  The brown paper with some print is Jim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock.  The rest of the paper came from Stampin Up cardstock paper.
