Monday Morning Catch Up Day

Hello everyone...hope you have recovered from your week of eating and shopping!!! I hope to get my Christmas boxes out of the storage shed today and begin all the Christmas decorating. I seem to add a box a year so hopefully I can find a place for everything!!!
I thought I would upload a few Rubbernecker projects that I finished last week for Splitcoast challenges but didn' t have the time to upload here.
The Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni challenge this month was "Hanging Out The Holidays With Ornaments". We were to create a project for any holiday as long as it could hang from something or have a loop or ribbon to hang it. I used the Rubbernecker Snowflake...stamped it on Eskimo Kisses dp with Versamark 3 times and embossed with Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder. The 3 snowflakes were cutout, attached at the pointed parts with glue, added the Prima pearl embellishemnts from Stamper's Dream, punched holes in the top pointy things, and added the ribbon.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Snowflake
Paper: Eskimo Kisses,
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Pearls, Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder, Ribbon

I made these Christmas cards for the Limited Supply Challenge last Friday.
We were to make more than one card with different layouts using the same main image and color scheme.
I was able to use up some scraps that were sitting on my work table since the last project I made. The Christmas tree images from Rubbernecker's Snowflakes and Stardust set were stamped with Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink, and Wild Wasabi. Pearls, ribbons from my scrap basket, and different Nesties layers finish them off.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Snowflakes and Stardust
Paper: Pretty in Pink, White, Prism Iced Mint, SEI Chocolate Mint
Ink: Wils Wasabi, Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Pearls, Ribbons, Nestabilities, Dimensionals

Joanne (sleepyinseattle) was the hostess for the DDC challenge last Tuesday and she challenged us to make a wreath out of anything other than a wreath stamp and extra points were added if we use flowers. I dug out my SU flower punches and Tuesday's Color Challenge colors of Bermuda Bay, Pretty in Pink, and Old Olive and went to town!!! The 5 colored flowers are from the Rubbernecker Spring Inchies set and the Rubbernecker Flourish Inchies images were used in the background under the flowers. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Wildflower set #465. Ribbon, silver cording, and silver pearls finished it off.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Flourish Inchies, Spring Inchies, and Wildflower set #465
Paper: White, Bermuda Bay, Pretty in Pink, SU dp,
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Old Olive
Accessories: Silver Pearls, Silver Cording, Bermuda Bay Ribbon, SU Flower Punches

Thanks so much for stopping by today...hope you have a great day!!!

I just LOVE the colors you have used here!!
Makes me want to smack my forehead and say "why didn't I think of that"! (But I will just enjoy what you have done, instead!)

Beautiful cards, Joan!

Fantastic projects Joan. Not sure which I like more, they are all so lovely. But if I HAD to choose, I think it would be the flower wreath card. That is SOOOOO cute!
