Cards in Envy Santa Baby

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  Create a card that uses anything that makes you think of Santa.  Could be Santa's hat, belt, sleigh or Santa himself!  I decided to make a card with Santa.

This vintage Stampin'Up Santa worked well with the Tim Holtz Sizzix retro Merry Christmas die.  There's just a touch of bling on the Christmas tree and a rinestone on the i in Christmas!  Come on over to the Cards in Envy blog to see what the other design team members did and then link up your Santa cards!

Cards in Envy Fire or Rain

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy Blog.  We are looking for cards that show either Fire or Rain.  I loved this sentiment from the Club Scrap Firecracker Stamp Set.  I dug into another old Club Scrap Kit, Fire and Ice (retired) for some paper and ribbon for the card.

Cards in Envy Favorite Holiday

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  Create a card featuring ANY Holiday that's one of your favorites.  My favorite Holiday will always be Christmas!  This is similar to a card I made for the Denver Scrapbook Expo card swap we just had.

I had planned on making a bunch of these cards but I ran out of this ribbon (acquired in the bargain bin after Christmas).  Of course I couldn't find any more of this ribbon and had to change up my Scrapbook Expo swap cards with different ribbon as I had to make 21 cards all the same!  This got me off my rear end to start making Christmas Cards.  
Hop on over to the Cards in Envy blog and share your favorite holiday cards (any holiday) with us.

Cards in Envy Something Spooky

It's the first Monday of the Month and time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  This time we are looking for a cute or a scary Halloween card.  Mine is not super scary (unless the Crow lands on my front porch)!  But I love Graphic 45 Place in Time for a Halloween idea.

Cards in Envy Feels Like Fall

Whoo Hoo!  Fall is here - now let's hope the cool weather shows up too.  Over on the Cards in Envy blog we are looking for your Fall Cards.  I had fun making some fall leaves to add to my fall card.

I used the Close to My Heart Pathfinding Card Kit to stamp the wood background and the sentiment.  I made the leaves using my Cricut and Art Philosophy cartridge for the leaves.  Head on over to the Cards in Envy blog to see the rest of the Design Teams cards.  Then link up your Fall cards for a chance at some bragging rights.

Happy Labor Day to you all.  Time for another challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  This time we would like to see fruit on your cards (apples, bananas, cherries. . .etc).  I went with the "fruit of the vine" grapes and of course their wonderful fermented juice . . . wine!

Cards in Envy Yellow and Black

The new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog is asking for cards with the colors yellow and black as the majority colors on your card.  I immediately thought of bumble bees.  I was inspired by this pin for an idea and came up with this card.

Cards in Envy Something New

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  We're looking for "something new."  Whatever you have that is new (new stamps, new technique, new ink, etc.).  This a a "new to me" die that is a Karen Burniston "Pop It Up".    I wasn't sure what to do with this die (I got it on a going out of business sale at a local scrapbook store).  I found this pin by Shelly Hickcox (StampTramp) and I was off and running using the Club Scrap Navigation kit (sorry, now retired).

Cards in Envy On The Beach

Here's the new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  This time we are looking for beach themed cards (as long as there is a beach image).  I went with some vintage bathing suits from the Club Scrap Boardwalk kit (retired).

This might be stretching Sandy's (Cards in Envy Boss) intent a little bit but you certainly can see bathing suits on the beach!  This card is winging its way to a friend who just retired from the Army as a Colonel!  I am so proud of her and her service to our country.  
Head on over to the Cards in Envy blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with for their beach themed cards.  Then link up your beach themed cards.
