Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #38

Gee, guess we know it is time for my post for Joan's weekly challenge, did not think that I would get it made it time, one thing after another kept popping up, and It is a Miracle that I got it done. Not sure what I think of it yet, but being as it is down to the wire, I don't have time to Re Do anything!!
Love to build snowmen with my grand kids and dog, so I went with these two stamps, one of a dog and of a snowman, added some trees and snow and that is all she wrote.
Stamped both, colored with copics and cut them out, they are both popped with 3D dots, as well as the frame. Put some snow and glitter on my trees, used some glossy accents on their noses and such, and some wonder fluff on the snowman's hat for the ball at the tip of the hat.  I used one of my spell binders, the grands to cut the frame and I think that is it. Oh, we had to black emboss something, so my sentiment is stamped and embossed with black embossing powder then I hit it with the old heat gun. Thanks and Any questions, just give me  a yell, or email!!
Take care all.
Oops where are my manners, forgot, the wonderful challenge at Joan's Gardens, can be found HERE. Great place for supplies , friendship and wonderful inspiration.
And as usual, Selma's from Selma's Stamping Corner, who's wonderful inspiration example for the challenge, can also be found HERE.

Thanks again for stopping by.
See you soon,
Donna (again) :)

Challenge #37 at Joans Gardens!

Hi all,
Well another week, another challenge, always fun at Joan's, check out the challenge and the guidelines  HERE.

Of course Selma, did a wonderful example card HERE, from Selma's Stamping Corner, she is  truly a wonderful inspiration.

I followed the guidelines as best I could, and if you have any questions about my card, just ask and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I used Elizabeth's Glitter to fill in my stained glass window, did a few other versions using colors and they come out so nice!! Love these new dies.

Thanks Joan, as I got my lovely new dies from you, as well as a lot of my other supplies!!
I apologize that my flowers are so small, I did not want them to be too big, and I think I went in the opposite direction and used ones that are too small, and I also may put some black bling in the four corners on the front of the card to dress it up a bit, some times it will take me days of touching up to finish a card to the point that I am 100 percent happy with it. I can not tell you how many times I walk in and out of my craft room and change the card around each time I do, and some times this works and some times it does not!! So I think I still have some more to do!! Such is life I guess.
And thanks to anyone that stops by my lonely corner of the world!!! : )

Weekly Challenge at Joan's (35)

Well, Hello all, another week and another Challenge at Joan's Gardens.
I Will list the guide lines below, I hope that I have done well enough by them, I love this new line of Bo Bunny Patterned Paper, very pretty, our local shop got it in, and for reasons I can not fathom, they are not ordering the line, and as they knew that I loved it, they gave me the sample line of paper, just gorgeous colors, very similar to their winter line last year in colors. But last years was also very sparkly, this is not, but still love the browns and the blues.
Anyway, enough of my rambling, again, below are this weeks guide lines, and then I will post my card following it. Will try and give a rough draft of what I used, if you have any questions, just give a shout and will get back to you as soon as I can. Also all supplies I used can be purchased through Joan, and HERE is a very lovely sample card by the wonderful Selma, from Selma's Stamping Corner, she is Joan's one woman design team and gives us all such wonderful inspiration, but we get a lot of inspiration from Joan herself too, she is just as talented!! And does some great video tutorials!!
Happy Crafting.
