I am on to week two of the Facebook group Weekly Cardmaking Challenges for 2022, the prompt was a church as a focal point. This is an older retired image from Stampin' Up! on Bashful Blue card stock. I highlighted areas with a mixture of Stickles, Wink of Stella shimmer, and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff (heated to activate). The background is an embossing folder by Crafters Companion.

I will be working on some New Year's and holiday thank you cards today. Originally I was going to use this for a New Year's card but it seems more Christmas-y so I'll save it for next year!
Stamps and coordinating dies by Recollections (Joann's or Michaels).

This was a fun and easy technique that I have never tried before. Simply ink the strips of masking tape and adhere them to your white card stock. I went over the tape with a bone folder to get all of the ink to transfer better.

Today's Splitcoast CAS challenge was "trees". I used a Honey Bee trees stencil and a Stampin' Up! woodgrain embossing folder along with their Garden Green and Handsome Hunter card stocks. The Pink Pirouette seam binding ribbon was colored with a Copic marker to match the Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition Gift Card Kit wreath. Added some Pink Fresh faceted gems for ornaments.

The challenge from the past Monday at Simon Says Stamp was to feature Santa and a stamp by Stampendous if you had one. I love this old fashioned Santa so I tried to make it look like a vintage postcard with some Tim Holtz distress oxide inks on cream colored card stock.
Total cuteness with these Santa's Helpers layering ephemera papers from Simon Says Stamp's December card kit. I kept the background clean and simple with an embossed birch trees background on heavy white card stock and some punched glitter paper snowflakes.

These cute layering tags from the December Simon Says Stamp card kit are really easy and fun to work with. I love the dimension of the image, it adds so much! I had the original 12"x12" Made By Elves paper pad from Craft Consortium that I used for the background.
