Merry Christmas, Creative Belli Challenge, Creative Cuts and More,

Hi everyone, Happy Veterans' Day!! This is also a special day in our family, DD son Levi, and little GS Coltens Birthday is today. AND it's Wednesday, so that means that it's another Creative Belli Challenge. This weeks challenge is a Christmas theme . You are to use anything to do with Christmas on your card/project, such as, stickers, ribbon, papers, stamps....(you get the picture). We also have one of my favorite sponsors this week, Creative Cuts and More provided us with some beautiful die cuts, cards, and/or 3-d projects. I just love to shop on their website, go check it out, you won't be disappointed. AND they have graciously donated a fabulous prize for one lucky winner... check it out here.......... It's the CC&M Treasured Family Recipes Kit... You can do soooo much with this kit... and it would make a wonderful gift if you could part with it!!
Okay, now for my cards. The first one I just looove. I'm a fan for velvet CS. I think it looks sooo rich and vibrant, so I chose the Oval Window Frame~Small in Tomato Velvet Paper. I layered this over the Doodlebug Beetle Black Velvet CS and then added the little sugar coated brads in each corner to help keep secure it. This is layered on Doodlebug Lily White Serenade CS. I don't know if you can see, but this is very glittery. I tried something new on the sentiment. I used a Stencil and White Embossing Icing, and then I just added puff stickers and a little bow to finish it off. I really like the way it turned out, but I will definitely have to hand deliver this card. Or just keep it myself!!
For my second card I used the Square Scallop Card ~ 5 14" Four Pane Window Card in Stardream Shimmer Metallic ~ Onyx. I love the shimmer on this card. I decided to to a little snow scene outside the window. I used the K&Company Smitten White Glitter Paper and added sticker snowflakes and my little snowman. Added a few stickles to the snowman to make him sparkle just a little bit more. The window treatment is a 3-d embellie that I covered with 7 Gypsies ~ Savannah Flock Paper ~ Stripe, and then added the beaded ribbon along the top. To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and then embossed in China Red EP added the cute (Holiday Time) Sequin Bows and there you have it.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek. Be sure and check out all of the wonderful projects the belli girls made this week.
Have a wonderful day!!
HUGS.. :O)
