Sunny Day Crafting Challenge #65 - X is for Xmas

It is time for a new challenge over at Sunny Day Crafting.  This weeks challenge is X is for Xmas.  I decided to change it up a bit a do a 3D project for this week. Here is what I made.

I made a Poinsettia tea light holder.  I cut the leaves out of green patterned paper and the flower petal out of some red and white polka dot patterned paper.  The design is from the Silhouette store.  I adhered all my layers together using some Nuvo liquid adhesive.  Once dry I added my little electric tea light. This adds a festive touch to my holiday decor.

Sunny Day Crafting Challenge #59 R is for Ribbon

It is time for a new challenge over at Sunny Day Crafting and this weeks challenge is R is for Ribbon.  Here is what I made for your inspiration.

I started with some Kraft card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" top folding card base.  I added some patterned paper cut at 4 1/8"X 5 3/8".

For my leaf, I took a piece of white card stock and sponged on some Orange Blush Nuvo Mousse.  On top of that I added some Persian Red Nuvo Mousse and let it dry.  I then die cut my leaf using the Tim Holtz Layered Bigz Leaf die and embossed it with the texture fades embossing folder that came with the die.  I love how the leaf turned out.

I added some chocolate ribbon to the patterned paper.  I then embossed my sentiment using some Metallic Copper WOW embossing powder. Once the sentiment was done I adhered my patterned paper to my card base.  Next I adhered the leaf to my patterned paper using some Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  This is my new favorite liquid adhesive.

Now it is your turn. Show us your projects made using ribbon using the linking feature on Sunny Day Crafting blog.

Your Kindness Doesn't Go Unnoticed

Here is a card I made for a friend of mine.

My card is a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp Brush Stroke messages stamp from the October 2017 card kit to stamp my colored swatches across the top of the card.  I used Distress Oxide inks in Wild Honey, Abandoned Coral,Fossilized Amber, and Squeezed Marmalade for the swatches.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Kindness stamp set and is stamped in Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink.
