Marshmallow Snowman

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Santa and/or Reindeer" - 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 image is Snowman and Marshmallow from Kinda Cute by Patricia  Alvarez,  I did some coloring with Copics and went to work fussy cutting (grrr, I hate fussy cutting!).  After using a die cut to create the circle, I used Seeing Spots embossing folder for some texture.  Using foam squares, I applied them to the images and sentiment strip (Merry Messages by Lawn Fawn) and finished the card off with some purple sequins.

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!

Birthday Flowerz

Die-cuts/Punches/Stencils 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 Mirtillamente Digital Stamps and Papers!

I used Copic markers to color the image, Flowerz: Flow No. 1.  To create the leafy background, I used Simply You by Concord & 9th with Pine Tree Green Memories Die Inkpad.  The centre background piece was created using the Moroccan Stencil by Simon Says Stamp with Aged Mahogany and Barn Door Distress Inks then found a couple of sentiments, embossed with white embossing power to create this birthday card.

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

Wintery Penguin Valentine

STENCILS / EMBOSSING FOLDERS is the theme for our February challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!   

Our challenge will run until March 12th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize.

Yes, we are a Christmas challenge and I may have stretched things a bit with my wintery Valentines Day card! 
I started with embossing the first layer using Stitched Snowflake Backdrop by Lawn Fawn and used Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks to create the pinky glow background.  Created some snow drifts, clouds and a skating area with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink - I used the same ink for the sentiment using Scripty Mine and the Winter Penguin stamp by Lawn Fawn.

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.
