Joyful Bottle Brush Trees

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Something SHINY" - we want you to include some shine somewhere on your 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.

The trees were created with Bottle Brush Trees  die-cuts by Spellbinders using purple and green glitter cardstock as well as silver foil paper. The inside oval is silver glitter cardstock and the scallop oval foil has a hint green. Snowflake embossing folder was used to create the background.

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!

Guest Designer at TFTUC

I'm very excited to be a Guest Designer at The Fairy and The Unicorn Challenge! TFTUC specializes in fantasy cards, from fairies and unicorns to gnomes and dragons - just to name a few!

I haven't used this image in a very long time, not sure why as she's so beautiful.  The image is Steampunk Fairy by Delicious Doodles, unfortunately the shop has closed.

I colored the image with Copic markers then used Distress Inks (Hickory Smoke, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar) to create the background. I rummaged through my embellies and found a few items I thought would go well on the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by and a huge thank you to TFTUC for having me as a GD for their September challenge.  Make sure to hop over to their blog and enter your fantasy card!

'tis the Season Shaker

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. This challenge will run September 1st through October 15th

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

The column I chose is "I", Aperture, Distressing Ink (blue snowflake), Shaker, Dots

I used Stitched Snowflake Frame die-cut by Lawn Fawn to created the aperture and the sentiment, Merry Circle Tags by Avery Elle (no longer available) was stamped with Versa Mark then set with silver embossing powder.  The smaller blue snowflake was created using a die cut after I applied Distress Inks to white cardstock.

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