Christmas Gift Card

 Christmas Craft Creations has a new challenge starting today and our theme this month is "Anything but a Card".  When entering our challenge, remember to include our theme badge (below) to your post!

Gift cards are popular this time of year so why not create your own personalized pocket! They are quick, easy and can be personalized too.  

There are so many templates out there, the one I used I've had for years however I don't remember where I got it from.  It's not a die cut, I printed the template on cardboard then trace it on whatever cardstock I want to use.  The image is from the Polar Pals collection by My Favorite Things, the sentiment is from Puffy Holiday Greetings by Mama Elephant and the background paper is Frosted Forest by Doodlebug.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you create!

Stacked Penguins at Winter Wonderland

 November Challenge time at Winter Wonderland! With a new challenge comes a new theme and this month our theme is Things with Wings.  

Our sponsor for this challenge is SheepSki Designs and you have to check out their images, definitely one of a kind and so fun to play with.

This image is Stack, even tho these creatures have wings, they are used for swimming and balance which is why they are staked on top of each other!  I used Copic markers to color the image and worked with papers from the Celebrate Winter collection from Echo Papers to create the layout.

I hope you have a chance to join us for this challenge and thanks for stopping by!

Pear-fectly at Creative Knockouts

Happy November! Well this year has gone by fast and considering the type of year 2020 has been, that might not be a bad thing!

Creative Knockouts has a new challenge for you with the theme of "Favorite Color Combo".  Our sponsor for this challenge is The Artsy Stamper and they have some fabulous images available so make sure you check out their shop!

This image is Bartlett Pears and I instantly imagined Autumn colors for my card and what is better than a green and golden color combo!  I colored the image with Copic markers to match the papers from Fall Fling by Lawn Fawn.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see your creations!

Christmas Tag

 Happy October!  With a new month comes a new challenge at Arty Divas and as always, our theme is Anything Goes.  Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Vectoria Designs.

For this challenge we were given printable Christmas tags to play with.  The tags are beautiful and easy to print.

I was trying to "think outside the box" on this one, I wanted to use the image as a background and this is what I came up with:

I created a round shaker tag by using circle die cuts and to keep with the vintage feel of the printouts I used Frayed Burlap Distress Inks to distress the outer circle.  I added the snowman and think I should have distressed him as well, next time!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you join us, I'd love to see your creation!
