Sweetness

Hello Crafty Friends,

For today I will be playing along with The Curtain Call, Freshly Made Sketches, and Cards in Envy. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The color scheme for this card came directly
from Curtain Call. Glorious colors!! Great job DT's!!

I like the white pop of color coming from the edges of the images.
So festive and happy.

Below: Detail showing the hot choco cup and wonderful dry embossing ..

All the best,
Shawna

Ombre Snowflake

Hello Fellow Crafters,

For today I will be playing along with The Paper Players. A fantastic challenge for this time of year. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The background was a template for another card.
I used it as a stencil and thought it was too pretty to throw away.
I thought it would be perfect for this card.

The snowflake is a cut out from a piece of DP.
I just couldn't resist using it for this design.

Above: This color combination is so pretty... The shiny snowflake and sentiment look
so nice against the dark blue background and ombre stripes.

Below: Two pictures of the same card showing its shiny elements in the light and one out of the light. Look at the ombre background in shadow... Wow!! 



Challenges Entered:
The Paper Players: PP324- Theme Challenge




Well, that should do it for me. I do hope you enjoyed your visit and the card for today. See you soon for another installment from TheGrandStampede. So, until next time take care and happy stamping, y'all.

All the best,
Shawna

Joyous Scene

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today starts another challenge at The Male Room.  The challenge these next two weeks are appropriately themed! Before I reveal the challenge here is my card for today, enjoy!

A simple winter scene using a monochromatic
color scheme to create a serene and quite design.

Challenge TMR#50
________________________________________

The festive plaid PP was used for a pop of color and vibrancy.
A simple sentiment only adds to the simplicity of the design.

Well, that should do it for me! I do invite you to join our challenge at The Male Room in these coming weeks. I am looking forward to seeing what you create. Also, thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I do appreciate every visit and if you aren't already a follower, I invite to join me in my adventures at TheGrandStampede. So until next time, take care and happy crafting.

All the best,
Shawna

Stitched Tea Party

Hello, and welcome back to TheGrandStampede!

Dry embossing the color band with a stitching folder adds to the
stitching theme of the card. 

Above: Shading the teapot gives it a sense of dimension and depth.

Below: The sentiment is so sweet for this type of card.  Notice the highlighted word 'tea' having the same color as the stitched center flower and petals on the teapot.  I also wanted to highlight the close-up of the stitched flower. All you have to do is some paper piercing and then stitch.

Realistic Roses

Hello again, and welcome to day two of MHKDesigns release with TheGrandStampede!


It is that time again at MHK Designs. Our new December release is out and I am here to share the new 'Realistic Roses' digi stamp set. Here is my card for today, enjoy! 

Look at those roses! This stamp set is absolutely amazing. Roses are a very verstile image.
In this case it made for a wonderful sympathy card.

_____________________________________
I was doing a bit of research on the color symbolism of roses.
Upon further research, I realized red is an acceptable color for a sympathy card.
I added an extra page to the card for another added layer.
Also, when scribing a note you will not see the writing on the outside of the card.

Pretty Petunias

Hello, and welcome to TheGrandStampede!
It is that time again at MHK Designs. Our new December release is out and I am here to share the new 'Pretty Petunias' digi stamp set. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The gradation for this card was all done using photo editing software. The banner was also done
using the same software. But I think what makes this card so beautiful is the dry embossing on the cards base.
