About Me

I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

July Christmas Card Challenge

Well, this month's challenge is to use PURPLE on your cards... it doesn't have to be as purple as my cards are, but there needs to be some purple on the cards.  Here's my sample:
The ornament punch is from SU (I'm not sure if it retired or not), and I used some shaving cream paper I had in purple and moss green. The ornament is edged in Perfect Plum ink (SU) and mounted on white  and pale plum card stock.  The white cardstock is edged with Perfect Plum as well.  The verse is stamped in Versafine Black Onyx, and the cardstock that the ribbon is on is a dark purple.  The verse is from Inkadinkado.

If you want to enter this month's challenge please post a link in the comments section if you have a blog or email me HERE with a photo of the cards you've done.

Have fun with this month's challenge!
