Virtual Stamp Night (or day)

Today I decided to participate in Splitcoast Stamper's Virtual Stamp Night. I have not done this before-probably because it typically takes me hours to make 1 card!  But today I am trying to keep up with the 45 minute time limit.  Whew!  Not easy to do!

This challenge was to try a new  (at least to me) technique, the Glitter Window.  This card uses 3 stamp sets-Lovely as a Tree, Tiny Tags and Peaceful Wishes (retired).  The card base and ribbon are Cherry Cobbler.  Other paper used is Whisper White, Very Vanilla, River Rock, Chocolate Chip and the newest Christmas dsp, Candlelight Christmas. The evergreen is stamped in Wild Wasabi and the window that frames it is made with the SU apothecary framelit. I clear embossed and hand cut the pinecones.  There is also Cherry Cobbler baker's twine, a Vintage Faceted button and a tag punched with the jewelry tag punch.  Believe it or not, there is also clear packing tape and Crystal Snow glitter. 

This was a fun technique to try-why not hop on over to Splitcoast Stampers and check out the tutorial?
Thanks for stopping by,

Back again with a little MOJO-the  MOJO Monday sketch that is-
 What a fun and versatile sketch!  I wanted to use warm, fall colors as well as one of my new stamp sets from Stampin' Up, Trust God.

Paper used is Very Vanilla, Patio Party dsp, Candlelight Christmas dsp, and SU Salebration dsp.  The sentiment is framed with the Stampin' Up embossing frame.  Embellishments include a new SU faux wood button with linen thread and leaves from Lovely as a Tree stamped on Naturals Ivory paper, colored with reinkers and aqua painter and hand cut.  I used the Simply Scored tool to score around the edge of the card base.
Oranges, golden yellows and browns-I am now ready for fall!

Thank you for visiting my blog;
have a blessed weekend!
