New Challenge with the Cuties

Welcome to new challenge at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme is Anything Cute and Christmas Goes with Optional Two (2) or more Patterned Papers.

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Sentiments and the image below is Snowman at the Window.

I used Copic markers to color the image then a white gel pen to add the squiggles.  I used my tag dies to cut two sizes of tags with two different patterned papers.  I fussy cut the image, added pop dots and positioned it on top of the tags.  The glitter "hi" is part of the Fab Frames die cut collection by Paper Smooches. Finishing touch, silver sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the day!

Summer R & R

Is summer around the corner??  If I had to base it on the weather we've been having here in British Columbia lately, I'd say we're a long way off!

Nevertheless, one can hope!  Our new challenge at Creative Knockouts should help with those positive summer vibes because we want you to showcase some Summer Fun!

Our lovely sponsor Jan from Jan's Digi Stamps has quite a collection of summertime images and the one chose to work with is this lawn chair from the Alone Together collection.

One of my fave summertime things to do is to relax in our chairs with friends and a glass of wine (or two).

I started by duplicating the image and added a computer generated sentiment (I saw this sentiment in another of Jan's collections).  I colored it with Copic markers to match the background papers from Summer Fresh Collection by Simple Stories.

Thanks for stopping in and I look forward to your summertime creations!

Christmas Trees

Christmas Trees is our theme this month at Christmas Craft Creations!

I have had this image for a long, long time ... I bought it from DigiStamp Boutique - Percy and Xmas Tree.  I wish this company was still around, they had so many adorable and unique images.

I used Copic Markers to color the image and added some glossy accents to the lights.  I cased the layout from one of my fave bloggers, Shani over at Papereese.

I hope you enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Jingle those Bells

Challenge time at Winter Wonderland!  The theme for our June Challenge is Christmas Decorations.

Our sponsor for this challenge is  Beccy from Beccy's Place and the image plus sentiment I chose to work with is from the Mr. Snowflake Collection.

I colored the bells with Copic markers and added Wink of Stella over all of them, unfortunately it's difficult to see in the picture.  I punched holes at the top of the bells and threaded through some silver string.  I added lots of layers with some fun papers from the Merry & Bright Collection by Carta Bella.

Graffiti Birthday

A new challenge means a new theme and at Creative Knockouts our theme is Washi Wonders!

Our sponsor for our Washi Challenge is LeAnn's World 101 and the winner will receive two dig stamps of their choice.

I used the Print & Cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo so I didn't have to try and fussy cut.  I colored Clyde with Copic markers and used a white gel pen on to give some accent on his jeans.  The sentiment and splatters were from Scrapper's Delights.

I finally had the time and courage to try stenciling.  I retrieved my brick stencil from the depths of my drawer and selected Frayed Burlap and Barn Door Distress Ink pads.  All in all, it was pretty easy and I like how it came out.  And of course, the finishing touch - double layer of Washi Tape.

Programmed to Party

I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer at C.R.A.F.T. Challenges for their Male Challenge!

Their fun and fab sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art Company Their designs are so unique, there is something for everyone!  They have graciously donated a $10 voucher to be used in their store!

This Whimsical Dancing Robot is Dancing Dave.  When my boys were younger, they loved robots and would play with their creations for hours.

I colored Dave with Copic markers and added Wink of Stella to the joints.  I decided to make a gate fold card and used patterned papers by Cosmo Cricket to add to the robot theme.  The sentiments were computer generated.

I hope you play along in this fun challenge and thanks for stopping by!
