Holy Night

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Silent Night, Holy Night" - operative word being "Holy" so we want you to feature a Nativity Scene on your card and don't forget, your creation must be Christmas themed.  

We have moved to a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will continue to play along so you have a chance to proudly display our Winners Badge or Top 3 Badge.

This image was created using Peaceful Night by Woodware Stamps.  I stamped the image with Versamark and set with black embossing powder and heat gun.  This time around I colored the image with watercolors instead of Copics.  I added some white and gold twine to the top and used gold cardstock for the backing.


Now it's your turn to show us your Christmas project and make sure you check out the Design Team's creations for some inspiration and remember - projects must be Christmassy and have to be Cute!

Christmas Surprise

 Welcome to our SKETCH Challenge at Creative Sketchy Girls!   Our sponsor for this challenge is Colour of Love .

This image is Christmas Surprise and I started off by pulling out my Copic markers to color it up.


After coloring the image I picked out some papers from the Be Merry collection by Pink & Main and started putting my sketch interpretation together.  The snowflake border was made using the die-cut Snowflake Border by Lawn Fawn.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creations!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sheepski Designs  and the lucky winner will receive 3 images of their choice!
This image is Coffee Break and I used Copic markers to color the image.  After coloring I found a sketch that I decided to follow and used papers from Sweater Weather by Lawn Fawn for the layers.  I added the coffee ring by using a stamp from the Coffee Break #1 collection by Inky Antics and the sentiment is from the Simple Sentiment Strips collection by Whimsy Stamps.

This is one of my favorite stamps, Amanda saw Santa Claus by Eat Cake Graphics, I just love the expression on her face! I found the sentiment stamp at a local thrift store, it made me laugh so I had to buy it and I think it goes well with Amanda.

Holly Hello

 This month at Winter Wonderland our challenge theme is Robin Redbreast chosen by our own Christine and our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Sheepski Designs.

You will have until December 1st to link up your Robin creations so get creating!

This image is Winter Robin and I love this little fella.


I used Copic markers to color the image and unfortunately I don't think you can see the Nuvo Glitter Drops I added to the snow blanketing some of the holly leaves.  I also used Glossy Accents on the berries.  The sentiment is from the Holly Berries stamp set by Hero Arts.

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice

 It's time for another fab challenge at Creative Knockouts and our theme for this challenge is Lots of Layers!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Pretty Cute Stamps and the lucky winner will receive a $15 gift certificate towards digital products!

I've used a Pretty Cute Stamps image, Pumpkin Spice.  Tis the season for pumpkin spice I figure!  The digi set comes with a number of images to mix and match - it's definitely fun to play with.

I used Copic markers to color the image and will admit, the colors in the picture seem a bit mis-matched but I promise you, the colors match closer to the coffee cup than what you see here! After putting the card together I played around with adding some embellies but all that seemed to work was one button.

I'm so glad you stopped by and make sure you check out the amazingly creative creations from our Design Team then it's your turn to start creating!

Sweet Christmas Wishes Cupcake Style

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Oh bring us some figgy pudding" - operative word being "pudding" so we want you to include a Christmas related food somewhere on your card and don't forget, your creation must be Christmas themed and feature a cute image.  

We have moved to a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will continue to play along so you have a chance to proudly display our Winners Badge or Top 3 Badge.

I recently purchased this stamp set, Jolly Cupcakes by Pawsome Stamps and I had so much fun putting this slimline card together.  I used Copic markers to color the image then I went to work fussy cutting them.  For the background I used Anitque Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks and the stencil is Frosty Snowflakes by Simple Stories.  I used foam tape to adhere the images to the card and sprayed Sparkle Shimmer Spray over the entire card.  To finish it off I applied Glossy Accents.

Now it's your turn to show us your Christmas project and make sure you check out the Design Team's creations for some inspiration and remember - projects must be Christmassy and have to be Cute!

Giant Happy Fall

Welcome to our SKETCH Challenge at Creative Sketchy Girls!  You will have until November 19th to link up your interpretation of our fabulous sketch. 

I hope you can see my interpretation of the sketch in my design.  

Instead of using rectangle paper layers I added the Giant Happy Fall sentiment by Lawn Fawn for the first layer and the die-cut Large Leaves by The Stamp Market for the second rectangle layer. The circle is represented by the wooden button.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creations!
