Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge - CCEE Sketch

This week the Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge has some cool pictures of tattoo's for the inspiration piece.  For my card, I chose to use the Mark's Finest Paper Santa image from the "Holly Jolly" stamp set.  The sentiment is from "Your an Angel".  I used the sketch from the CCEE Stampers challenge.

Below you will find the inspiration pictures:

I hope you will join us for the Speedy TV Inspiration challenge this week.  Thank you, for stopping by.

CCEE Stampers Challenge - Embossing Speedy Fox Challenge - Green Christmas

This week the CCEE Stampers challenge is to make a card with either dry or wet embossing.   I used green and silver paper,  to go along with Speedy Fox and Friends them of a green Christmas, on my Easel card.  I chose to use the Mark's Finest Paper new stamp  set called "A Chill in the Air".  I love primitive stamps so I gave this stamp a Primitive look.  I stamped the image once and without reinking, I stamped it beside the first image to make the branch look really full.  I added some white paint to the limb for my snow.  I used a copic marker to make the red berries.  The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from another Mark's Finest Paper stamp set.  In our blog hop this week, Janine used ornaments on her tree branch and I thought that was a great idea so I added ornaments also.

Thanks, for stopping by today and I hope to see you over at Speedy Fox and Friends and the  
CCEE Stampers blog joining us for the challenge.  If you can't join. at least come by and see what the other team members made.  You might get a really neat idea for your Christmas cards.

Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge - At the Hop

The Speedy TV Inspiration challenge theme for this week is "At the Hop".   I really had fun with this one.  I used a background stamp by Mark's Finest Paper called "Pocket Watches".  I decided on this one when I thought of the old rock and roll song "Rock around the Clock".    Who can think of a sock hop and not think of a cute poodle skirt.  I used the Silhouette to cut out the outfit and the 45 record.  I finished up by using the Mark's Finest Paper stamp set "You've got Style".  I hope you have enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed making it.   I hope you will come and join us for the challenge.

Here are the Sock Hop Inspiration pictures:

I have always loved silver embossing on navy.

I wanted to show a ribbon on the single branch, I can see using this as a Christmas card, too.
