AMYRS#50 AND ATSDT #30- More Winter Fun!

Another busy weekend gearing up for the holiday. Also a weekend filled with bad news. Shannon, from the scrapbook bungalow, suffered the tragic unexpected loss of her stepmom and best friend Debbie. My friend Sarah's husband has been in the hospital with an unexplained illness. Fortunately, they finally think they have linked it to an illness contracted from a contaminated bird (not the bird flu! pstiticosis). I have just been praying constantly!
When not watching episodes of House , I did some crafting, ordered Christmas cards... yes, ordered, not made. I was running out of time and didn't want to come up with a witty way to make a photo card! Here are the two cards I made for this week's challenges:
Amy R's Sketch Challenge- AMYRS#50- Snow Buddies

Supplies- DP- K and Company Swell Noel; CS- Bazzill CS, TAC U/S White; Stamp- Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie (from ATS!), Sentiment from SugarPlum Snowmen by CC Designs; Ink- Palette Noir; Coloring- Prismacolor Markers; Tools- Cuttlebug EP folder, nestabilities; Other- Target $1 ribbon, eyelets.

I got in all my new CC Designs stamps but also had this Stampavie Rachelle Anne Miller stamp that I ordered from ATS as well. I had to use it on this card! I love how the image turned out after being colored- brillant!

Next Challenge:

ATSDT#30- Winter Bear Gift Card/Money Holder

Supplies: Designer Paper- MME Christmas Short Stack; CS- CTMH Cranberry, TAC U/S White; Ink- Palette Noir; Stamps: CC Designs Winter Bear, Holiday Greetings sentiment by TAC; Coloring- Kohrinor Colored Pencils, OMS, Prisma Markers; Tools- Cuttlebug, nestabilities, embossing folder, Coluzzle and library pocket template; Other- CTMH twill ribbon, dimensionals, retired stampin up notched corner punch.
I am super pleased with how this turned out! I was going to make a library pocket with pull out gift card so I used my coluzzle template... Well, I got going and realized it made a kind of wallet type holder. I cut another template out using the red paper to line the inside. It didn't line up perfectly but I like the little red edge showing :) Inside, I cut a piece of white and used the retired SU notch corner punch so that a gift card or cash (as shown) will fit in. BTW- isn't this just one of the cutest stamps EVA?! So glad I got it!

Opening the holder...

Inside, showing how money fits in. The little pocket edges also keep the money from falling out when closed. Great huh?!

I have a couple more items I will share this week, if time allows. It's the last week before 2 weeks of Christmas break, YAHOO!! Have a great one!

Hi Kelley! What cute cards! I love love love these stamped images! It's so neat to see what stamps other people have but then again it's such a tease because it seems I can never find them when I am out shopping!

Thanks for sharing!
