Midweek Throwdown

Oh my goodness..maybe it's the Holiday Vacation Challenges or maybe it's that all my shopping is done but my mojo is back and on fire!  I made 3 cards tonight of the same design but different colors.  They are for the OWH Midweek Throwdown and Holiday Vacation Challenge #5!  Enjoy!
This is the first of the set and my favorite.  I liked it so much I made a couple in this color.  The hearts and the word LOVE are from the SU Filled with Love set and the ribbon is out of my stash.  Love my new Seeing Spots EF =)  The hearts are popped up on some 3d foam.
The ribbon on this one is actually 2 different ones.  I have so much ribbon but never the 'right one' for the job. So I made my own =).  The flower brad is SU.  I wanted to change it up just a little but I think if I mass produce this one I would leave it out.
S&W Love
The last one!  This one was my attempt for the monochromatic Holiday Challenge.  My husband told me the others weren't monochromatic so hopefully this fits the description.  The ribbon again is 2 different ribbons pieced together to get something close to what I was looking for.  I tried to use silver embossing powder with glitter in it but it turned out terrible and kept flaking off....SAFETY HAZARD!  So instead I used some silver ink I picked up years ago at Target.  I really like how it turned out.

Well I hope that you've all enjoyed! I can't believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I am so excited for Christmas this year since my husband is home with us and it will be his first with my son.  He missed out on so much last year and we are making up for it this year.  I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas and are able to spend it with those that you love!


  1. Samantha... these are so elegant!!! I think the red and white is my favorite, but all of them are amazing!!!

  2. Samantha, It is always so much fun to look at the same card in different colors! I really like the red and white, but the black and white with the flower in the love is terrific. Very nice. Merry Christmas! Blessings, Louise

  3. Monochromatic is a stumper isn't it? Lookin' good though! I think the red and white is my favorite, all of them are beautiful. Thanks for playing in our Valentine challenge at Operation Write Home!
