I have a double Wags 'n Whiskers post today! I was asked to be a guest this week for Christmas Stamping All Year Long!! Gotta love getting those Christmas cards done early!! I also have the Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge today, too. I wasn't able to combine the 2 challenges well, so I have 2 cards to share.
First up is the Christmas Stamping All Year Long challenge."Create a Card" using the following card dimensions and colors:
Base: Kraft - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Mat: Red- 3 1/4 x 1 3/4
Any patterned paper: - 3 1/4 x 4.5
Ribbon or Fabric: White
Buttons or Brads: Red
This was a little bit of a "challenge" for me, only because I haven't worked much with A2 size cards lately. But after a few ideas, I finally came up with this one...
I love the simplicity of it! I used Wags 'n Whiskers Bear Hug for the image. Such a great image that it can be used for many occasions, including Christmas. I used some Basic Grey DP, and SU Real Red CS which I embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
I added some jingle bells so it qualifies for the ABC Christmas Challenge - J is for Jingle Bells.
The ribbon is White Silk Lace with the Bow Easy and the button is from Basic Grey. The sentiment is PTI Signature Christmas. To finish it off, I inked up the edges of the card base with Chocolate Chip and added stickles around the whole card.
If you would like to play along with the CSAYL challenge, link your card here. And make sure to check out all of the awesome work from the Design Team!!
Next up is the Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge.
This week is a color challenge: Pink and Green. Such a yummy color combo!!
Remember, you must use a WnW image to be entered into the drawing for a free Wags 'n Whiskers stamp of your choice. And if you want to be a guest for one of our challenge, add "DT" after your name when you link your card for this week's challenge.
For my card, I used Summer Treat...
Isn't Danni and Bella adorable?
The sentiment is from Kraftin Kimmie.
The images on both cards were embossed in black and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os...
