Something Green

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Something GREEN" - add the color green somewhere on your card, or all over you card and don't forget, your creation must be Christmas themed and feature a cute image.  

We are a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will continue to play along for your chance to proudly display our Winners or Top 3 Badge.

This cute little gnome is from Conie Fong Art.  I started by uploading the image into Silhouette Studio and used the print and cut function (I hate fussy cutting!).  Copic markers were used to color the image then set to work on the layout.  The sentiment was one of many included in the Creative Stamping magazine, Issue 115.  

Now it's your turn to show us your Christmas project and make sure you check out the Design Team's creations for some inspiration and remember - projects must be Christmassy and have to be Cute!

Christmas Wreath

CHRISTMAS IN JULY is the theme for our new challenge at Creative Knockouts!

We have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge so make sure to upload your creation for your chance to win a $15 voucher for digi images from Alex Syberia  Designs!

The image above is Christmas Wreath Joy.  I used Copic markers to color the image then applied glossy accents to the red berries and Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops to the smaller berries.  I could not have matched the papers (Hearth & Holiday Collection by Simple Stories) any better and the kicker is I didn't even realize I had these papers until after I was finished with the image.

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

Be Warm - Be Cozy - Be Merry

  A new month brings a new challenge at Get Creative Challenges!

Our theme this month is CHRISTMAS IN JULY - seriously, it's really six months to December!

We are a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will play along for your chance to proudly display our Winner or Top 3 Badges.

I made these cards in multiples, they are so quick and easy to make and assemble.  The stamps I used are from the Snowhaven collection by Close to my Heart.  I used Versamark to stamp the images on cardstock, sprinkled white embossing powder overtop and set with heat gun.  I attached a strip of ribbon below the trees and I'm done!

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you hop over to Get Creative Challenges for some inspiration from our fabulous Design Team!

Merry Kissmas Baby

Christms Bingo Challenges has a new challenge ready to go for you!

CBC will feature a new Bingo card for each challenge and while this isn't your typical game of BINGO, you are required to use at least three items in ONE column.

We are a "just for fun" challenge where you will have the chance to proudly display our Winner or Top Pick Badge!

My choice was the "I" column - Stenciling, Square, Masculine and Frame.

I used my Cricut Joy to cut out three sprigs of Mistletoe and used white Nuvo Drops to create the berries.  After the drops dried I went to work assembling the sprigs, added touches of glue here and there and finished with a bow of bakers twine on top.  

I used two square die-cuts to create the white frame and and I used texture paste and a brick stencil to create some dimension with a more "manly" look to the black and grey plaid background paper from the Let it Snow collection by Carta Bella.

The sentiments are from two different sets, Big Holiday Wishes by Simon Says Stamp and Celebration Scripts by Pretty Pink Posh.  The inside sentiment reads "Meet me under the Mistletoe"

So glad you stopped by and I look forward to seeing your creation!
