Altenew October 2017 Inspiration Challenge

Here is Altenew October 2017 Inspiration Challenge, below is the challenge photo:


And here is the card I made for this challenge:


I stamped the leaves from Altenew's "Layered Laurel" set with three different colors to form a wreath. Then, I stamped the Happy Holidays (from "Beautiful Inside" set) in the middle of the wreath and heat embossed with black sparkling embossing powder. I applied the green glitter glue along the square mat to form a sparking border. Finish the card by dropping some "glow in the dark" Nuvo drops to mimic berries. Below is another look of the card:


I love this Christmas card made with non-traditional colors. Below is the photo I tool when I turned off the lights to see the "glow in the dark" Nuvo drops (pretty cool):



Supplies:
Cardstock: MFT, Stampin' Up, PTI
Stamps: Altenew

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #14 & A Blog Named Hero October Challenge

Here are the two challenges I would like to attend both related to Lawn Fawn's critters:

1) Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #14 - Happy Little Critters, below is the challenge photo:


2) A Blog Named Hero October Challenge - Calling All Critters with Lawn Fawn, below is the challenge photo:


And here is the card I made to attend the above two challenges:


I used Lawn Fawn's "Merry Christmas" border die and the die cut inlay technique to create the "Merry Christmas" border under a pocket I made. Then I white embossed "dropping by to say" (from Lawn Fawn's "for you, deer" set) on top left corner of the background. I also heat embossed "Let's Hang Out" (from Lawn Fawn's "for you, deer" set) at the bottom right corner of the card. I randomly dropped some white Tonic Nuvo crystal dots on the dark grey background to mimic snow. I used the "for you, deer" set to create two book marks - deer and bear, and insert them into the pocket I created. Below is another look of the card:


The card recipient can pull out these two little critters as the bookmarks to use. I coloed them with Copic markers. Below is the look of the cute bookmarks:

Here is Paper Smooches September challenge - animals, below is the challenge photos:



And here is the card I made for this challenge:


I used Bear Frog card die to create this cute frog and shaded it with Distress ink. I stamped the bee from Courteous Cuties set and colored it with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush, then cut it out.

I made this card for the donation to a hospital in Taiwan and the card will be sent from nurses or social workers to the children stayed in this hospital. Since this card is made for a boy, so I decided to make another card for a girl.
