Still in the patterned paper bin...

A quick and easy card from one pad.
The base card is white card stock.
The main piece is patterned paper from Recollections "Holiday Glimmer" with a piece of black card stock added before taping it to the card front.
From the same patterned paper pad using the Stampin' Up ornament punch I punched out the ornament for the front of the card and foam taped it to the front!


I did a white on white challenge before...
...but I wanted to do more of a Christmas theme this time.

All the elements are white card stock.
I cut a piece and ran it through the BigKick with the Paper Studio's "snowflake" embossing folder and applied it to the base card.
Back to the BigKick with the Sizzix "birch trees" die which I glue dotted to the card front for dimension.
Finally I die cut three of the "peace" from Sizzix "holiday words" set and glued them, one on top of the other, to the card front.

Lost in space...

The base card is white.
I made a "cheater" galaxy background by taping down a piece of watercolor paper and smeared Distress blues and black inks.
Once the background dried I dribbled water and removed it with a paper towel.
Then I placed "stars" with a gel pen.
I stamped the alien and earth from Paper Smooches"space cadet" using Adirondack pitch black ink.
I colored the images with Chameleon pens, trimmed them out and glue dotted the images to the front of the card to finish it!

Using my patterned paper...

...for the next few challenges (if possible).


The base card is white card stock.
I next applied a layer of grey and red before taping down the patterned paper from DCWV "Nantucket Stack".
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the gull and verse from MFT's "Seaside Seagulls" set using Adirondack slate ink and coloring them with Chameleon markers.
I layered some red and grey behind the gull piece before attaching it to the front of the card.

On to my wealth of patterned paper for more ideas!

So my friend said she was using more of her paper packs...

...and I decided to do the same!

The paper pack is Colorbok from Ollie's!
It was great inspiration for the card.
The base card is brown textured card stock with a layer of the "cake" paper from the pack.
On cream card stock I stamped the bunny and verse from Stampingbella's "make a wish Hoppy poppy" using StazOn timber brown ink.
I colored the image with Prisma color pencils and trimmed it out in a flag form with a layer of brown textured card stock that I trimmed as well before gluing it to the front of the card.
