It's tome for a new challenge at Addicted To CAS and our sponsor is create A Smile. I am the host this time and I chose the code word stitched.
This can be hand stitching, sewing machine, faux stitching or just using a stitched die cut as I did with my card.
To make my card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel cut down with a stitched die. I stamped the floral image from the Birthday Blooms Stampin Up set, colored it with Copic markers and cut it out with the Scan N Cut. I used the Stitched Hearts die from Lil' Inker Designs to cut out the heart shape on the stitched panel and then replaced it with vellum, next I popped u the floral image and added the greeting. To finish the card I used a white gel pen for the stamen in the middle of the flower.
I hope you will play along with my challenge

We are continuing our Christmas release features and today it is the sets Holiday Hugs and Poinsettias & candles. Buy card features the set Holiday Hugs, I love all things snowman so I just had to get this set. This set also has a cute penguin set, so I'll be back on Monday with a card using him.
To make my card I started with a top folding card base and a white panel. I also cut a piece of the Christmas Perfectly Plaid paper from Lawn Fawn, to go at the bottom of the card front. I stamped the image on both the panel and on a scrap piece of cardstock. I colored it in with Copic markers and then used the Scan N Cut to cut out the image. The greeting I used is from the Snowy Hello set because I wanted a greeting that I could curve to match the border. To get the greeting to curve I used the Mini MISTI stamping tool from My Sweet Petunia.
After stamping the greeting I ran the panel through a snowfall embossing folder. I added my colored image to the embossed panel and cut it down with a stitched border die from Pretty Pink Posh. To finish my card I added some flock to his hat, some glossy accents to the heart and the star on the tree and some Wink of Stella to his wings (which doesn't show in the photo)

My card share tonight is for Altenew's Ultimate Blog Challenge. September is full of birthdays for me, so I am using this challenge to get another card made.
To make my card I started with a Smoky Slate top folding card base and some of the Winter Perfectly Plaid designer paper from Lawn Fawn. I used Peony Bouquet set from Altenew and the Mini MiSTI. The MISTI makes it so easy to line up two or three step stamps.
I cut a stitched tag with the Anytime Tag dies from Lil' Inker Designs to make the focal point. I the stamped the first layer of the peony using Bo Peep, the second layer with Lake House and the third layer with Ocean Drive, all from Wplus9, for the leaves I used Hero Arts Lime Green and Green Hills. The greeting is from the Altenew Birthday Greetings set and I used a Copic marker to color in the word happy. To finish the card I added some sequins for sparkle.
I loved the colors in the Inspiration Photo for Ellen Hutsons Pin-Sights challenge, so they were my inspiration for the colors I used.
I am also entering it in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of

I'm back with a late night post so I could get this entered in a couple challenges
I love this Scripture Tree stamp from the Christmas release at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, it's so easy to make a quick card with.
To make my card I started with a Coastal Cabana top folding card base and a piece of watercolor paper cut to the exact size of the Mini MISTI. I always use the MISTI tool when using watercolor paper because of the texture it's hard to get a crisp impression. I stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder twice to get more dimension. After heating it with the heat tool I placed it back in the Mini Misti and watercolored it using Zig clean color real brush pens, and then spritzed it with water and let the colors blend together. After I was satisfied with the results I cut the watercolor panel down using a stitched die from My Favorite Things. To finish the card I added some sequins for sparkle.
