Snow Buddies at Digi Haven!

The weather outside is still frightful in my corner of the world so our theme of Snow Buddies at Digi Haven is quite appropriate for me!

We have a fun & fab sponsor for this challenge, Dilly Beans!  The winner will receive 3 digi stamps of their choice!

I love this image, Framed Disturbed Snowman from Dilly Beans.  When I colored this image, I really had no paper or layout ideas and while I was looking at it I wasn't sure I liked what I had done ... until I found this paper and ribbon from my stash and now I have to admit I love it.

Dilly Beans is a Silly Dilly Digi Store!!

Bare Christmas Creations at ABC!

It's challenge time at ABC Christmas Challenge and the letter we're at is "B" ... B for Bare as in Bare Essentials, just something plain and simple!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Care2Stamp and the lucky winner will receive $15 gift code to shop at their store!

So sorry for the poor quality of this photo .. I misplaced my camera for days and finally found it tonight under loads of cardstock only to find the battery was dead.  Everyone it the house is asleep and I have been banished to my son's room to wait for the battery to charge every so slightly ... the lighting is horrid in  his room and this is all I can manage at this late hour!

So ... I used my brand new snowflake & scroll embossing folder with white paper and used my snowflake metal dies to cut out black snowflakes and attached them with black brads.  I added some clear and black rhinestones and finished the card off with some sparkle mist.  The sentiment is by Stampin Up.

Quick and easy peasy ... now it's your turn and I  hope your camera is charged and ready!

Turquoise Winter at Creatalicious!

It's time for January's challenge at Creatalicious Challenges!  Our theme for January is Turquoise Winter.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Paty Greif Digital Stamps!  The winner will receive Applemania Stamps Kit (see below)!

This cute Paty Greif Winter Image 01 was colored with my Copic Markers.  I used patterned paper from the Journey Collection by Authentique for the circles using my Nesties by Stampabilities.  I used my snowflake dies and cut them out using silver paper and used brads to fasten them to the card.  The sentiment is stamped using Silver stamp pad and is difficult to see but it says "You warm my heart" and that is from a stamp set by My Favorite Things.

Now it's your turn to start creating something deliciously turquoise and link it up over at Creatalicious Challenges!

Hello there! I'm Paty Greif and I've been working with digital scrapbook for a long time, but I always loved digi stamps and the beautiful cards made with them. That's why I decided to step into this wonderful world!
You can find my products at my store at DigiScrappersBrasil, everything made with love and care.
Come and visit me!

A is for Anything Christmas as ABC Christmas Challenge!

It's the start of a New Year so that means a new start on the alphabet ... time for the letter A to make an appearance with our new challenge "Anything Christmas".

Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps!  The winner will receive 7 digis of their choice, that's right SEVEN!

I will admit that the sentiment is not my creation.  While surfing Blogland I came across this card by Bunny's Cards and thought it was the funniest sentiment ever, considering the guilty expressions on the trio's faces I burst out laughing.  I knew I had to make a card using her idea and here it is.

The image is Reindeer Trio by Bugaboo and I used my copic and spectrum noir markers to color it up.  I also used glossy accents on quite a few areas of the card.  I decided to add the ribbons like I did to kinda simulate jail bars, hee hee.
