Dueling Divas -- Round 5

This months kit was sent by LJ. I just love this whimsical little snowman. He looks like he's having so much fun! Since I'm from the north, I KNOW how much fun it to play in the snow. Not so fun when you have to actually go somewhere though. I know you can't see it very good, but I used SU Crystal Effects to make the ice block look wet and shiny.

Anyways, here's my creation for this month. Thanks LJ!

Many Thanks...

I made this card for my niece to give her coach since the Soccer season is over. He apparently likes Bleu Cheese (notice the cheese slice in the first pic) so she wanted  that to be on there. The inside says : From My Stinky Feet To Your Stinky Cheese. The hamburger is punch art from Dawn's Stamping Studio. The second hamburger is with cheddar cheese. :D


Punches: Extra Large Oval, Large Oval, Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/4" Square
Cardstock: Creamy Caramel, Real Red, Green Galore, So Saffron (cheddar cheese) or Very Vanilla (bleu cheese), Chocolate Chip, Crumbcake, Basic Black, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Stamps:  Lots of Thoughts
Ink: Baja Breeze (bleu cheese) and Stazon Black
Accessories:  Silver Brads, Soft Suede Grossgrain Ribbon and Dimentionals. I also used Celery Seed for the top of the bun.

Dueling Divas - Round 4

Oh yes!! It's that time again. Time to duel! Our hostess this month was Barb (barbaralynn on SCS), who sent so many fantastic papers, embellishments and images. This was a great kit and with so many different ribbons and such to work with who could help but come up with a masterpiece?! Thank you Barb! 

I decided to put my greeting on the inside so it wouldn't take away from the lovely image on the front. I also used Stickles to put some "bling" on the leaves. This was my first time ever using Stickles and I am already in love with them! My card base is SU-Soft Suede.

Dueling Divas Round 3

This month's kit was sent by Carol. Like last month, I had a super hard time trying to decide which embellishments to use! Everything in the kit was so so awesome. For the base I chose to use Stampin' Up Brocade Blue cardstock.  For the base panel, I used the beautiful pearly paper that Carol sent in the kit, along with the snowflake charm, half pearls, rhinestones and cute cute 1/8"  ribbons. I forgot to add that my "mystery" item is the tiny snowflake buttons that I got from a BIG jar that my mom gave me a couple of weeks ago.

Dueling Divas - Round 2

About a month ago two awesome ladies (Woo Hoo... Kelly and Jeanette!!) on SCS asked me to join them for a "duel." Everyone who joined were divided into 2 teams and "duel" the other team with card creations. Each month is a different theme and a different member sends out card kits to her team, and we all see what we come up with. Then we each post our creation on our blogs on the 15th of the month. Miss Joan was our lovely hostess this month with a "Cute and Cuddly" theme and supplied the image, DSP (some awesome flocked (and recycled!) paper), ribbon and numerous other embellishments.

Here is what I came up with :
