LOVE IS IN THE AIR/VALENTINES is the theme for our new challenge at Creative Knockouts!

Our challenge will run until February 15th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize from our fabulous sponsor The Paper Shelter!

This is one of the images from the Funny Giraffes collection.

After coloring the image with Copic markers, I found the background paper from the Love Story collection by Fancy Pants Designs which I've been holding on to for a very long time!

C-Tree Snippet

SNIPPETS is the theme for our January challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!   So pull out those scraps of paper, or whatever scraps you can find in your craft room and start creating!

Our challenge will run until February 7th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize.


Well, first off I have to admit the card in person looks much better than the pic above!  

To create the tree, I started with using my Cricut Joy to cut out the triangles and used a square diecut for the tree trunk.  I gathered scraps of cardstock then used Sentiment Strip Dies by Pink & Main to create the rows.  

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Typewriter Holiday Sentiments collection by Memory Box and then applied foam squares to the back of the tree and placed the tree in the centre of the card.  

The tree was decorated with sequins and the star was created using glitter card stock snippet and diecut Inside Out Stitched Starts by MFT.  I sprayed the card with Antique Bronze Mica and  Gold Sheer Shimmer.

Happy New Year 2023

A new month AND a New Year brings a new challenge at Get Creative Challenges!

Our theme this month is Something New - let your creativity flow with this theme, maybe it's a new year, new stamp that you got for Christmas, the possiblities are endless!

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 thought I would bring in the new year with a Happy New Year card.  I used the stamp set and die cuts, Prosecco-Ho-Ho by Avery Elle to create my card.  I embossed the images on black and gold cardstock and on the gold bottle, I stamped a second black image just to use the label.  Added a bow and we're good to go!

I put together patterned papers that were in my stash and the tags were created using Nested Round Tags by Maker's Movement. The sentiment is from the Says it all again set by Clearly Besotted.

Nordic Christmas stamp set by Simply Made Crafts that was from Issue 113 of Creative Stamping Magazine.

Christmas Gnome Stack

GNOMES is the theme for our December challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!   

Our challenge will run until January 10th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize.

        
The image is Christmas Gnome Stack by Conie Fong Art.  I printed the image on copic paper then went to work coloring. After coloring I put it through my Silhouette Cameo and was very disappointed when the blade didn't cut through the paper so I ended up fussy cutting (which I really don't like doing!) to salvage the images.  

I pulled out my brand new Stacked Merry Die-namics by MFT and cut three layers of white and one layer of contrasting color then glued them all together to create a stack,  After choosing the background papers, I glued the die-cuts into position, applied foam tape to the back of the image and placed it next to the sentiment.  To finish it off, a button and some baker's twine.

Merry Snail

This image is Holiday Snail by Gerda Steiner Designs.  I think this is my second time trying my hand at an interactive card.  It always takes me so long to figure things out so I hope my second card will go much faster!

I used the Movin' & Groovin' Slimline die set by MFT although I don't see this set on their website, it is available at Simon Says Stamp.  I followed a tutorial on MFT YouTube that was quite helpful.




Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Holidays!
