CCEE1647 Pins and Needles

For her last Challenge, Frances told us :

Sunday, November 27th is Pins and Needles Day, which commemorates the opening of a historical Broadway play called Pins and Needles.  This week, let's create cards with a sewing theme, using either stamps, dies, papers, buttons, pins, needles, or any combination of the above.

Inside, my card says "What's Up?"

My stamps are from MFP, and I used the dress form die from PTI, along with the chevron dies, and an oval Nestie.

Please join us, linking your card HERE.

WInter Trees

I don't usually post the cards I make daily......they are always on SplitCoastStampers if you really want to see them. (Or on Pinterest)  Today was the exception.

I followed the sketch that's posted every Wednesday.

I turned it 90 degrees, and made my card.  Here it is.

The trees in the front take the place of three of the circles, and for the fourth I die cut and sponged two clouds.

When I had it all done, it looked a little sparse, so I punched out some RED birds.  Still not finished looking, I sprayed the whole card with White Linen to make snow.  Then it was done.

I love the look of the gently sponged sky with soft clouds, and the pines in the background.  I hope you like it too.  If you are looking at this card, and you receive it in the mail for Christmas, you won't be surprised, but in real life, the cards are much better in person!

Stamps: Inkadinkado, Paper Co. Studio
Inks: Cool Caribbean, Handsome Hunter (Stampin' Up), Ranger White Linen Spray
Paper: White, RED, Hunter
Dies: Memory Box clouds, Dee's Winter Tree

CCEE1645 Origami

Frances tells us:

"Tomorrow, November 11th is Origami Day.  Let's include something origami on our cards.  It could be a folded shirt, dress, crane, a folded box - whatever you like."

I made an origami doll, following this SCS tutorial.  At first I went to Pinterest, and tried a bat, then a frog, and ended up more confused than when I started!!!  This one looks so easy, but it's NOT!!!

If you are brave, join us, and link your origami piece to our blog HERE.

CCEE1644 Wobble

Frances is our Hostess for the month of November....  Here is her first challenge:

"The 2nd of November was Wobbly Wednesday, the day to bring awareness to a condition called Nystagmus, a non-stop and uncontrolled movement of the eyes, symptomatic of problems with the visual system of the brain and body.  For our challenge this week, let's add something wobbly on our could be those fun wobbly eyes, action wobbles or some other form of movement on your card."

I just love this image and saying from Your Next Stamp, and after cutting it out, added an action wobble to the back of the light bulb for a little fun.  This card will go to one of my grandsons.

Feel free to join us, adding your card to our blog HERE.
