Fall Challenge at Creative Knockouts

The weather is changing and Fall is upon us with the beautiful colors and crisp weather, Autumn is my favorite time of the year!

Nice segue into announcing our new challenge at Creative Knockouts!  Our theme for this challenge is "Fall".  Our sponsor for this challenge is Sweet N Sassy Stamps and the lucky winner will receive a $10 gift certificate!

This cute little image is Cocoa's Candy Apple.  Back in the day when we went out trick or treating, we would often chant "Halloween Apples" at the door so when I saw this image my Halloween memories came flooding back.



I used my Copic markers to color this cute little image and added glossy accents to the bow and finished it off with a spray of pewter shimmer spritz.

#Reindeergames at Creative Knockouts


It's an ANYTHING GOES challenge over at Creative Knockouts!  Time to brush off that workspace of yours and get down and dirty - show us what you got!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sheepski Designs and the lucky winner will receive 3 images of their choice!

I LOVE this image, Rudolph's Selfie and it makes me smile every time I look at it! 




I colored the image with Copic markers and let me tell you, I was having some difficulties.  Trying to match the coloring in both pictures proved to be a challenge for me - none the less, I love it anyways!  

I cased the design/layout from Sheepski Designs, I really liked the background and wanted to give it a shot (needs some work, forgot about matching the image again!).

I used a white gel pen to add some dimension on the nose(s) and as falling snow.  I sprayed some Pewter Spritz and added glossy accent to the nose(s) and stuck on some bling.  The hashtag "#reindeergames" was computer generated.  

For the layout I was trying to find the right patterned paper but felt the image was lost in the patterns I had so I stuck with CAS.

Make sure you check out the amazingly creative creations from our Design Team then it's your turn to have some fun.



Prize:  3 images

Relaxing at Creative Knockouts

It's challenge time at Creative Knockouts!  Our theme for this challenge is "A Charmed Life"... that means we would like you to add a charm to your creation!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Sentiments Designs and the lucky winner will receive 3 images of their choice!

This image is Relaxing by Crafty Sentiments Design.  I love this image and it reminds me that I need to take more time for myself to just relax.




I colored her up with Copic markers and created the cloud background watching my trusted YouTube video because I can never remember how to do it!  

The layout was inspired by Vicki.  With my spellbinders I created the smaller circles and the large circle was made using my Creative Memories Circle Custom Cutting System and finally the addition of the flower charm and I am done!
