Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge: 3 of a kind

The challenge for the Artist Team this month
is to create  a card, page or project with elements from
three different kits. So what to come up with this time.
Then I wanted to make something to thank (it was
thanksgiving yesterday and I am thankful for being part
of this Artist Team) Tricia for the wonderful
opportunity to be part of the team and to thank
Karen for all the work she does for us, so how
about a thank you in a pocket letter!

You can read all about it this challange on the main
Club Scrap Blog and see all the names of
the members of this wonderful Artis Team HERE.

For  I hope you have arrived here from
and seen what great inspiration she had for you this time.

For this pocket letter I used 3 different kits:
Pure & Simple
Each row of three cards is made with the stamps
and papers from the same kit.

The first row is Adirondack. You also see on the
left the word "love" which is from the November kit
Trattoria. It works so great here to make Love Club Scrap.
The big letters are cut with SU! letter framelits.
The stamped ducks are cut out and interwoven with the letters.

The 2nd row is made with Succulents papers and stamps.
You see here a strip of paper all across the three pockets.
Thanks is stamped with versamark and gold embossed.
The plants are colored with watercolor zig markers.
Here the 2 cards that are behind the strip of paper.
In the middle of the cards there is not much interresting,
just an open space so the strip belongs to the cards.
For the last row of cards I used the Pure & Simple papers and stamps.
For each card I stamped on the designed background with another
design and the go so wonderful together. Some leaves are 
intertwoven with the letters.

If you are interrested to see more pocketletters, it was one of the 
post we did together and you can still see it HERE.

And now it is time to move on and see 
and what she has in store for you.

Thank you so much for always 
visiting my blog and leaving
all your wonderful compliments.

Have a creative day!

Saturday Sketch Card: Reindeer

For today's challenge I was inspired by two blogs
and of course i could use more of that design paper that I
have lying around and never seems to finish.
The first challenge is this sketch challenge on the

And seeing the Michael Strong reindeer stamp I used

I noticed it fits the Just Add Ink challenge too!

The reindeer stamp comes with a large and a small one,
so perfect to use inside the card.

I was not going to throw away the little strips
I cut of , but  used them to decorate the inside too.

Thank you for looking

Torn Paper for Christmas

Every month there is a technique challenge on the 
This month the technique is called torn paper and you find all
the details on the blog HERE.
I made 3 cards with this fun technique.
Grabbed some papers out of my Club Scrap box and the
I started with cutting a 12x12 piece of blue scrapbook paper
into 3 strips of 4 x 12 inch and folded each in half to make
three cards.

Card #1
I still had a gnoom left from my other Christmas  cards
I made for the Card Folio last month and I came up
with this fun idea of the the peeping gnoom.
I embossed the white paper with snowflakes,
colored it a little blue and teared all sides.
Then I made the hole in the middle and taped
the gnoom behind it. The sentiment is from the
Scandinavian Holiday Stamps and punched out
and taped to the card. 
The baker's twine is from my stash.

Card #2
Again I started with an embossed snowflake background.
Next I ripped two pieces of paper for the bottom to 
look like snow by adding a little blue ink to the torn borders.
The reindeer is stamped in beown and cut out.
With foam tape I added the animal to the card.
The sentiment is punched out and one side is also torn
to fit with the border of the card.

Card #3
For this card I took 3 pieces of paper and 
stamped the snowflake stamps from the Scandinavian
Holiday stamps on all of the papers. Next the paper was 
torn into strips and made into a background for this card.
The trees are stamped with versamark on dark blue paper
and embossed in white. Cut out by hand and added to the
card with foam tape. The sentiment is also embossed in white.
The card is finsihed of with some hemp from my stash.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Birthday Pizza

Today I share a card with you  that I made for a sketch
challenge and is a great male card for a birthday.
I used the stamps and papers from Club Scrap's
Trattoiria November kit.

You find the stamps HERE and HERE.
I colored the pizza with my zig waterbrush markers.
The red background is a panel I had left over from
printing the digital backgrounds and was perfect to use here.
The baker's twine is from my stash and makes all the colors
together so Italian.

This is the sketch I used from the

Don't you love this sentiment?!

And here is the inside of the card with some left over
pizza parts and a hand drawn line around the border.
The sentiment comes with the stamps.

Thank you for looking
and have a delicious creative day!
