This first card, using the colors from Fab Friday, is the culprit, and I CASEd it from a card Justin Krieger created for another challenge - his combination of Joy to the World with the World Map was just too clever not to copy. It's not as if I planned it from scratch, so I don't know why it was waking me up in the night, thinking about which parts should be which colors:
stamp sets - Joy to the World, World Map; ink - Coastal Cabana; Stampin' Write markers - Gumball Green, Real Red; card stock - Coastal Cabana, Gumball Green, Whisper White; 3/8" stitched satin ribbon - Gumball Green; mini brads - Real Red (retired); Stampin' Dimensionals
The next two cards use the beautiful Winter Frost paper because I think it fits the photo inspiration at House of Cards perfectly, and also works nicely for the Winter prompts at Shopping Our Stash and The Pink Elephant challenges.
First I put the sketch from 'Tis the Season to work:
stamp sets: Festive Flurry, Joy to the World; ink - Island Indigo, Versamark; Stampin' emboss powder - Silver; card stock - Pool Party, Silver Glimmer, Whisper White; designer series paper - Winter Frost; Big Shot with Festive Flurry framelit; 1/8" mini brads - Silver; washi tape - Epic Day Basic Gray
stamp sets - Festive Flurry, Teeny Tiny Wishes; ink - Versamark; Stampin' emboss powder - Silver; card stock - Coastal Cabana, Brushed Silver; designer series paper - Winter Frost; Big Shot with Northern Flurry embossing folder and Festive Flurry Framelit; Stampin' Dimensionals
