Anything Goes at Creative Knockouts (and DT Call)

Challenge time at Creative Knockouts with our fab sponsor Dr. Digi's House of Stamps!  The winner will receive 2 images of their choice.  Our theme is Anything Goes!

I love working with Dr. Digi's stamps - they are truly unique and they add a great sense of humor to any card, take Banksy Claus for instance!

I used Distress Inks to create the background and used an embossing folder to create some texture and illusion of a wall. I was hoping to use a brick wall stencil but haven't been lucky to find one in our crafting store.

 I cut apart the image and used distress inks again on the Ho Ho Ho and also used some smooch spritz to give it a bit of a graffiti feel to it.

I added some foam dots to Santa and a bit of white puff stuff on his hat and the sentiment is from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creations!

Prize:  2 images

Anything Goes at Creatalicious Challenges

Anything Goes with optional Reindeer is our challenge at Creatalicious Challenges!  Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter and the winner will receive 3 digis of their choice!

With Christmas just around the corner, I'm sure we are all now in the frenzy of decorating and wrapping presents ... Rudolph is no exception!

This image by The Paper Shelter is What a Mess and I have to admit I think I look like that too!! Along with Copic markers, I also used Spica markers to add a bit of sparkle and wrapped it up with a bow.

I would like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Just for Fun at Christmas with the Cuties

We are sooooo close to Christmas and this will be the last challenge of 2019 over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Sometimes it's difficult to relax in the days up to Christmas so we've decided this challenge is going to be JUST FOR FUN with no sponsor.

So, if you need to de-stress, pull out your CUTE stamps and have some fun with it!

Meet Merle, this darling giraffe is a digital image is by Beccy and can be found at Beccy's Place.  I have a thing for giraffes, I simply adore these animals and I have had the chance to be up close and personal and I couldn't get enough of them.  The digital stamp set also comes with sentiments and "twinkle, twinkle Christmas lights" is one of them.

Thank you for stopping by and I'd like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Christmas Critters Challenge and new DT Member

This is my first challenge as a Design Team member for Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and I'm super excited to be a part of the team!  

We have a fun challenge for you this month - showcase your Christmas Critters!  

I came across this image on Pinterest, Fa La La Llama is from Just Me Digital Stamps on Etsy and creator Elena is wonderful.   Unfortunately this image is no longer available and Elena will be slowly phasing out her images which is so unfortunate.  I encourage you all to visit her on Etsy and check out her adorable images. 

I colored this adorable image with Copic markers and the background papers are from Oh Deer Collection by Fancy Pants Designs. To add a bit of dimension, I included pink and white sequins and some stickles on the pom pom. 

I hope you have as much fun creating your critter cards as I did mine and I look forward to seeing them all!

Anything Goes at Winter Wonderland

It's challenge time at Winter Wonderland!  Our theme for our December challenge is Anything Goes (Christmas of course!).

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digital Delights and the lucky winner will receive a $5 voucher to use in their store.

This Christmas image is Magical Tree Santa.  I colored it up with my Copic markers, matching it to the non-traditional Christmas colored paper (I love pink).  This is a great image to color if you don't have a lot of time, it's quick to color which is perfect for this time of year when we are all so busy.
