Star of Wonder

Welcome to the monthly blog hop from the fabulous stampers at ICS. You may have hopped here from my BFF Nichole’s page or this may be your first stop. We would love to have you hop all the way around and see the many amazing projects we have for you!

This month our theme is  I am dreaming of a White Christmas, and so we are sharing white on white creations. Winter is getting into full swing here in Idaho, where we had our first snow this week. This theme is just perfect for the winter!

White on white card for the ICS Blog Hop. Star of Night is featured with Wink of Stella and some bling. Find more at www.faithgracestamp.com

Star of Night is by far my favorite set from the Holiday catalog and a perfect fit for this challenge. The camera does not pick up the shimmer from the Wink of Stella or the dimension this card has, which is such a shame! It’s glittery and gorgeous in person!

Now it’s time to hop on over to Jennifer’s page and see what she has created for us!

An early Noel

So, I get that it is only Oct 6th but it is time to start working on Christmas cards! When I saw the challenge over at Fab Friday, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for it. Don’t you love it when that happens!

Monday Sketch Challenge

Yay, it’s Monday! Specifically, it’s back to school day for us. Yes – I know, most of you went back to school weeks ago. We are homeschoolers and our co-op doesn’t start back until today. So, it’s our first “official” day of school. We have been working on a few things all summer and started getting back to a normal schedule 2 weeks ago but it was really a soft start at best. That is OK with us and one of the many reasons we love being homeschoolers.

Anyway….this week at SSInk we have a sketch challenge for you.

ssinkcs37

And here is my card:

sc37ssink

This card features an image and one of the many sentiments from the Star of Light set now available in the Holiday Catalog. If you need a copy just let me know and I will be happy to get one for you. This set also has a coordinating set of thinlits but I will save those for another day. This sketch lends itself to something quick and easy – and you know how much I love quick and easy cards. I think you can expect to see this one in next month’s class!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you will leave me a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post.

#SSInkCC37 – monthly color challenge

Oh fall – how I love your colors. Today at SSInk we have a great color challenge for you!

#SSINKCC37~September

But instead of going traditional fall I decided to go a different route –

SSInkCC37

Cajun Craze isn’t the first color I would normally reach for when it comes to Christmas but I really like it paired with the Garden Green and Chocolate Chip. This would be a great color combination for masculine card as well – or even a Masculine Christmas card…he he he!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope that you will decide to play along with our challenge this week and feel free to leave me a comment letting me know how you think of our color combo.

SSInk Hostess Aug

Isn’t this Santa just the cutest thing ever! He is from the new set Cookie Cutter Christmas and has been cut out using the coordinating punch.
