Snowy Penguin

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Something SNOWY" - 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 darling image is Snowball Tree Theo Penguin by Polkadoodles. I colored the image with Copics then went to work on fussy cutting (ugh).  With that out of the way I went to work on creating the background with Wild Honey, Spiced marmalade and seedless Preserves distress inks.  The falling snow was creating using Frosty Snowflakes stencil by Simple Stories and Moonlight Gold Cosmic Shimmer Luna Paste.

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!

One Friend

ANYTHING GOES is the theme for our new challenge at Creative Knockouts!

We have a fabulous sponsor so make sure to upload your creation for your chance to win a special prize from Hetty Clare!

This image looks exactly like me and my bestie so with our theme of ATG I decided to make a friendship card to give Sherry. 

The image is Festive Girls and I used Copic markers to color the image.  The papers are from the Let's Polka collection by Lawn Fawn and the Madison collection by Penny Black.  The sentiment is One Friend by Altenew.

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

Dashing through the snow

CAS - Clean and Simple is the theme for our August challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!   

Our challenge will run until September 10th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize.

CAS it is - one stamp was used, the antlers from the Wonderland collection by Stampin Up! and enamel dots were used for the eyes and nose.  I used a snowflake embossing folder for the background and the sentiment was computer generated.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to jump over to CCC and check out the fabulous creations by our Design Team.

Please remember to add our challenge badge (above) to your post for your chance to win!

Those Summer Nights

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

Our theme this month is SUMMER NIGHTS. 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.

On those hot summer nights we often visit a "cool" ice-cream shop just up the road from us, Duke's Fine Ice Cream.  They make the most amazing flavors, one of my faves is Rose Pistachio.  There is always a line up but it's worth the wait!

I came across a fabulous tutorial from Lisa at Lisa's Stamp Studio and I had to try it.  This was my first attempt and since then I have revised it slightly and lengthened the inside flap so the card will stand on its own.

There are a lot of "moving" parts but it came together quite nicely and since the images were strictly done using stamps and inks, it went by fairly quickly.  The stamp set is Share a Milkshake by Stampin Up!

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