Christmas Village

MAKE A SCENE is the theme for our December challenge at Christmas Craft Creations! Let your creative juices flow and imagination run wild!

Our local craft shop had their annual Customer Appreciation day and as I was poking around I came across this die cut called Village Edges by Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I used shades of grey for the two back layers and white for the top layer which I applied pop-dots for some dimension.  This die-cut is perfect for making multiple cards at one time and it's fast and easy to put together.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to jump over to CCC and check out the fabulous creations by our Design Team.

Huddle in Color

 This month at Winter Wonderland our challenge theme is Anything Goes Christmas.  

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

This image is called Huddle.  Now I realize penguins are typically black and white however, I wanted to do something different - I only wish I printed the image a bit larger to prevent it being lost in the design.

I colored the image with Copic markers and used distress inks on the Holly Jolly stencil.  Our local craft shop had a customer appreciation day last weekend and I received the Sunburst Stripe Circle die-cut as a gift and decided to try it out.  The sentiment is from the Festive Ticker Tape Wording stamp set by Creative Expressions.

Now it's your turn to show us your Christmas cards and for some extra inspiration, make sure you check out our Design Team's creations.

Jolly Ornaments

A new month brings a new challenge at Christmas 24!  

Our theme this month is "Ribbon".  Show us your creativity by adding some ribbon to your creation!

This is a new stamp set for me, it's called Be Jolly by Create a Smile.  I fell in love with the expressions on their faces and had to have the set.  

I colored the images with Copic markers then fussy cut them all.  After deciding where I wanted the baubles I drew the strings then attached the images with pop-dots.  The sentiments are also from the set and I used gold and white embossing powder.  For the card on the right, I added some gold ribbon near the bottom. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you hop over to Christmas 24 for some inspiration from our fabulous Design Team!

Merry Kissmas

 Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is MEET ME UNDER THE MISTLETOE.  What does that mean you ask?  We want you to make a card for someone special and don't forget, your creation must be Christmas themed and feature a cutie, patootie image.  

Our sponsor for this challenge is Polkadoodles and the lucky winner will receive a special prize!

This darling image is Hollybobs Mistletoe.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and decided to leave him as CAS. I added some polka-dot paper to the bottom and stamped the sentiment in Versamark and used white embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the Big Holiday Wishes set by Simon Says  Stamp.
