Christmas with the Cuties Challenge!

I am super excited to announce that I am now a member of the fab Design Team over at Christmas with the Cuties!  

Our challenge this month is "Personalize It".  Show us who your card is for, maybe your son, daughter, hubby, niece, neighbour ... make it special by personalizing their card (remember it must be cute!).

Our sponsor for this challenge is Di's Digi Stamps and this sweet image is Deliver Wendy.  

With my Copic Markers I colored her up to match the background papers, added some clouds in the background and decided not to make a snowy path for her to walk on as I thought it would be too much white.   I used my stash of sentiment stamps from Stampin Up! to create the Sweet Daughter tag.

I didn't realize how low my stash of Christmas/Winter embellies has become so I used a couple of buttons and ribbon to finish the card off.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you create!  Remember to stop in and see what the design team has in store for you!

Prize:  Gift Voucher

Embossing Challenge at Creative Knockouts

It's time for another fab challenge at Creative Knockouts!  Our theme for this challenge is EMBOSSING ... any kind of embossing!

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

I chose to work with Little Witch for this challenge since it's soooo close to Halloween!

Not only do you receive black and white .jpg and .png files, you also receive colored images in both .jpg and .png.  I decided to play with the color files for this challenge.  

I placed the image in front of some Halloween subway art and printed it off.  I used scissors to cut around the image and and printed the October 31 sentiment and used distressed ink to give it an old vibe.

I used a chevron embossing folder on the black layer and attached the image and sentiment with foam squares.  To finish it off, I added some ribbon and a couple of Halloween embellies.

Here is another version of the colored image paired with digital Halloween paper.  There are so many things you can do with these images!

Have some fun and start creating, I'm looking forward to seeing your design!

Make sure you check out the amazingly creative creations from our Design Team and remember to leave them some love!

Prize:  3 images

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.

Make sure you check out the amazingly creative creations from our Design Team then it's your turn to start creating!
