Aurora Wings, Corrosive Challenge, Winter, Yule 2 Comments »

Happy New Year everyone!  This year’s first challenge from The Corrosive Challenge Blog is themed “Shiny and New” and is sponsored by Aurora Wings.  She is giving away a fabulous prize to the winner, so be sure to go and check it out.

My card was made with Aurora Wings image, “Snow Queen”  I colored her with Copics and then used some liquid pearls in her hair, which you may not be able to see real well.  After adding all my layers,  I added a metal snowflake that I got from Oriental Trading, then added some snowtex and part of an icicle embellishment from Jolee’s.  Hope you like!  Thanks for stopping by and hope everyonee has a fantastic year!


Happy Holidays

This is my design team card for the new Corrosive Challenge starting today at The Corrosive Challenge Blog!  Our host for this challenge is C.C. Designs (formerly All That Scraps).

For our challenge they are offering offering 3 digis!  What a great way to get you motivated to make those Christmas cards!

My card was created using Lil Lilita Christmas Willow.  She was colored with Copics and I stitched around the boarder.  The papers are from the Paper Studio and the candy cane was actually a mini tree ornament I got off the clearance aisle last year.  Sometimes Christmas decorations make the great card embellishments!

SC359 – Yule Dragon

Christmas, Dragon, The Paper Studio, Third Coast Stamps, Winter, Yule No Comments »

I created this card for today’s sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  Not sure what you get a dragon for Christmas, but whatever it is, it probably needs to be fireproof, huh?

After coloring my little guy with Copics, I cut him out to pop him up for a more 3D effect.  I then colored his tail one more time and popped that up again.  The snowflakes are made of foam and the paper is from the Paper Studio.    Stamp:  Third Coast RS

Supplies:  Stamps:  Third Coast, Foam Snowflakes, Blue Jewels, Blue Brads, Foam Tape.  Paper:  The Paper Studio.  Colored with Copics

Winter Snowman

Christmas, Northwoods Rubber Stamps, Serendipity Rubber Stamps, Winter, Yule 1 Comment »

Created this little scene with Northwoods RS (background) and Serendipity Snowman.  I used the Cuttlebug to add texture to the back panel and then stamped out the Northwoods winter scene and cut out my snowman to pop him up in the scene.  I added stickles to the trees and Inkssentials Glossy Accents to the pond to make it look iced over (probably can’t see it to well in the photo). 

Supplies:  Stamps – Northwoods RS and Serendipity; Cuttlebug, Brads, Ribbon, Stickles, Glossy Accents. Colored with Copics.

Kitty Gabriel

Angel, Christmas, DCWV, My Minds Eye, Third Coast Stamps, Winter, Yule 1 Comment »

I created this card for the Ways to use it challenge over at SCS.  Kitty Gabriel can be found at Third Coast Rubber Stamps.  Isn’t he adorable?  I used a red felt ribbon on the middle and just glued two gold pearls to it. The image was a little large, so in order to make it a nice square that would fit on the card, I cut around the horn, wings tail and banner, leaving those parts to hang off the edges. I like the effect!

Third Coast RS

Supplies:  Stamp:  Third Coast RS Kitty Gabriel.  Paper:  My Minds Eye and DCWV, Red Felt Ribbon, Gold Pearls, Foam Tape, Stickles.  Colored with Copics.

Winter Skater

Christmas, Martha Stewart, Third Coast Stamps, Winter, Yule 3 Comments »

These stamps are from Third Coast Rubber Stamps.  I masked my skater to add the trees behind her.  I LOVE the way this came out.  Had some trouble picking out the colors for her outfit, had to start over a couple of times, but I think the pink and blue came out pretty good.  Added some fun flock to her coat. The punch was from Martha Stewart and the glitter paper is American Crafts.

Winter Watcher

Sweet Pea Stamps, Winter, Yule 1 Comment »

Been crazy trying to get all my Halloween and then Winter cards done before I move on to participating in a few of my favorite challenges.  There just does not see to be enough time in the day to create all the cards I need for the holidays!

In the holiday spirit, I thought I would post one of my absolute favorite images from Sweet Pea Stamps called Winter Watcher.  This just happens to be one of my favorite cards of all time too ; ?

Sweet Pea Winter Watcher 

I’m not sure what company the paper comes from. All it said on the back was scraphut, and since I can’t even recall where I got it, that isn’t much help. The other dp in the back, had nothing written on it, so probably came in a kit.

The middle panel was embossed with cuddlebug. I stitched the back and middle panels, and then cut out my robed chicky and popped her up so she would stand out a little more from the cat. Added some stickles and stitched on the charms.

Supplies/Details:  Stamps – Winter Watcher Sweet Pea RS; Paper – Unknown; Buttons, Cuttlebug, Thread.  Colored with Copics.

Xmas Hottie

Christmas, Kenny K, Paper Pizazz, Pin Up, Winter, Yule 1 Comment »

Another Kenny K digital image.  I wonder if she’s cold?  Poor girl needs a coat!!  I used my Cuttlebug to make the middle panel, then hand stitched the edges and x’s in the corners.  Used stickles on her hat, gloves and boots.

Supplies:  Kenny K Digital Image – Xmas Hottie, Cuttlebug, Tread, Paper: Paper Pizazz, Stickles. Colored with Copics.
