Scrapbook Nook Card Sharks Week 3

I've been pretty productive this past week! Not only have I gotten a lot of Christmas shopping done, but I've made a few things. Today I want to share the cards I made for the Scrapbook Nook's Card Shark challenge. We have been earning points all along, but this week there will be some voting involved. I never enter these contest type challenges, but this is all in fun. I may ask your help later in the week, though. ;)

Anyway. The first challenge was to create a card with 5 of a type of embellishment. Here is my card.




I started out my using a PTI edger to die cut the edge of the card. Then, I added some Webster's trim.For my '5', I chose Webster's gems. I love them! I cut them right off the gem strip and added them to the trim border. The big snowflake sticker is Crate and I added a snowflake punch to it. I die cut the circle thingy behind the sticker using Spellbinders Beaded Circles. And see that gorgeous pin? My sister in law, Patty made it. She recently sent me some of them and I'm in love!!!

This next card is for a challenge to make a love or Valentine themed card. I couldn't resist pulling out my Melissa Frances glittered chipboard hearts. I think they are my favorite embellishment of all time!




I used some My Mind's Eye paper, a layered sticker and the burlap. The trim is Prima and the gold lace is Webster's. I had one strip left and I ended up using it on each of the cards I'm posting today. Love it!

My final card is for a challenge to use eight elements.




I used 2 papers, stitching, lace, a chipboard snowflake, the layered sticker, some scruned seem binding and a brad. ;) The paper, sticker and brad are Crate. There's my Webster's trim and the snowflake is from Michael's. I painted it with Lumiere paint and it gave it a gorgeous sheen. It's kind of hard to see it in the photo.

That's it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
