Christmas Duo

Hi there!  I've got two cards to share this evening for three challenges.  First up is for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.  I've had this Technique Tuesday sentiment for ages and today it finally got it's moment to shine (or twinkle even)!  I have lots of American Crafts glitter tape kicking around and thought it would compliment the sentiment well.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Twinkle On) Technique Tuesday
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Tape:  American Crafts
Gems:  Recollections

This card is for two challenges.  Lawnscaping is having a CAS challenge and I took inspiration from the photo at Inspired By All The Little Things for my design.  These Lawn Fawn stamps are all NBUS too.  I ordered them last year but they arrived too late for the holidays.  Saves me from having to order Christmas stamps for this year.  
Ha ha ha ha ha!  
Yeah right...  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Real Red, Always Artichoke) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Wood Designer Cardstock Paper 6x6) My Mind's Eye
Stamps:  (Holly & sentiment from Deck the Halls, Bow from Ornate Ornaments) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Real Red, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede) Stampin' Up
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

I LOVE the way you treated our sketch this week!

These are both wonderful!

Great cards, Jen! I had to laugh when I read what you wrote about the NBUS from the holiday season last year. I, too, have a bunch that never got inked up last year (too many purchases and not enough inky time leading up to the holidays). So...I'm trying soooo hard to resist the holiday releases this year----but they're always so darn cute!!!

Two stunning designs, especially the glitter in the first!

Fabulous cards! Your "rustic yet clean" Christmas card looks gorgeous and is a perfect take on the inspiration pic. Thanks so much for joining us at Inspired By.

You mitered that tape perfectly, Jen, and its sparkle is just what the sentiment needed. I love the design of the second card with the wood strip decked out with greens.

Lynn said...

Two beauties Jen! Love all the shimmer on the first and the rustic feel on the second.

You've combined graphic and shimmeriness so perfectly, Jen ... this first card is so cool! Gorgeous, rustic second card ... the delicate pine cone and branches are brilliant against the wood grain ... and that pop of red for the sentiment is delicious! Hugs, Anita :)!
