More Cards That Didn't Win

I made these cards for the CTMH Make It From Your Heart Contest for Consultants. I hope you're inspired even though they didn't win.
This first card was an oops, lol. I made the card thinking the contest was for showcasing the new stamp sets. The contest for cards needed to showcase the new papers. So I added the thin strips of Mistletoe, and still submitted it even though I know it wasn't showing much of the paper.
All Card Sizes: 4.25" x 5.5"
The tree is from the Tannenbaum Stamp Set. I embossed it with Gold EP, I clear embossed the tops of the tree on the White Daisy CS. I used the Corner Rounder to make the scallops, and finished it off with pearls and rhinestones.
This next card I wanted to show that the Olivia papers could be Christmas-y too. I used the set of trees from Holiday Trinkets to stamp a background. I used the Blending Pen to colour in the tree.
I embossed the tree with Black EP, and finished the card off with rhinestones and colonial white grosgrain ribbon.
Here's the card I made to showcase the Mistletoe papers (since I oops it on the first card:)). I used the stamp set Snow Days, and the sentiment is from Everlasting Life. I used the Blending Pen to colour in the house, and Prisma Glitter to add sparkle to the snowy areas.
I embossed the sentiment with Black EP on vellum, and attached it so the edges were not flat but curled up a bit.

I made a total of 5 cards, and none of the 5 won. Oh well, there's always next catalogue release:)

I really like the Christmas wishes card. I enjoy using non-Christmas papers for Christmas. I gave you a little something on my blog, but you'll have to visit it to get it. katescraps.blogspot.com Great job!

Love all of the cards, especially the Peace on Earth. It is gorgeous! Did you stamp and color the top right image right on the patterned paper?

Deneen said...

Hi there,
Thanks for your kind comments. I stamped the bridge right on the patterned paper and used a white gel pen to add the snow. The house is stamped on white CS.
Thanks for asking:)
