Ski Bunny

Ready for a new challenge over at Creatalicious Challenges?  Our theme as always is Anything Goes with an optional twist "Winter".

This image is Ski Bunny by My Favorite Things.  I've had this set for so long I actually forgot I had it.  I colored the image with Copic markers then set to work creating the layout.

You are Tough

It's time for another fab challenge at Creative Knockouts!  Our theme for this challenge is "Something to Say", meaning we want you to add a sentiment to your creation.

We are super excited to introduce a new sponsor for us, welcome Mirtillamente! and we're all ready to play Evelin's fun and funky images.  The lucky winner of this challenge will receive 2 images of their choice!

I chose to work with The Pine: Anne B. for this challenge. After coloring Anne with Copic markers I searched through my stash of papers and found the perfect match with Happy Camper by Doodlebug. For the layout I followed the sketch by Sunday Stamps

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

Christmas Sweater

STENCILLING is the theme for our JANUARY challenge at Christmas Craft Creations

This image is from the Digi stamp set Christmas Sweaters from Kate Hatfield Designs.  This particular sweater is only one image of the nine you will receive - they are awesome, make sure to check them out!

For the background I taped down the Holly Jolly stencil by Photo Play and applied Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink over the stencil.  I cut a piece of vellum with a circle die-cut and after coloring the sweater with Copics, I added pop-dots to the back and positioned the sweater in the centre of the vellum.  

The sentiments were from the Merry Christmas collection by Say it with Stamps. I used Versamark and white embossing powder on brown cardstock.

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.

Nutcrackin' Christmas

Pa Rum Pum Pum Pum ... Happy New Year and welcome 2022! I hope you all had a happy and safe holiday.

I'm excited to have created this card for Debbie at Creative Creases Challenge as a Guest Designer.  The theme for Challenge #23 is ATG with a Fun Fold.

The stamp set I used to create this card is Nutcrackers by Avery Elle and I also have the matching die-cuts.  After coloring the images with Copic markers I cut them out using matching die-cuts.  

The center circle was made a circle die-cut and colored with Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks then spritzed with some H20.  After assembling the card I decided to add some holly and of course, nuts to crack.

This was a fun card to assemble and thanks Debbie for the opportunity of being a Guest Designer!

Skatin' by to say ...

Reminder time for Creative Sketchy Girls Winter/Christmas/New Year's Challenge - there is still time to link up your creation(s) here!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Color of Love and the lucky winner will receive 3 digis of their choice! 

I used the stamp and die-cut set Polar Bear Pals by MFT Stamps.  After coloring the polar bear with Copics I used the matching die-cut to cut it out and added pop dots to the back.  

I taped off the bottom of the card and used Blueprint and Prize Ribbon Oxide Distress Inks to color the sky.  After it dried I pulled out my Snowy Flurry stencil by Taylored Expressions the spread texture paste overtop.  Of course, in true fashion I forgot something, the sentiment.  Luckily there was room at the bottom that fit the sentiment from the Jolly and Merry stamp set by Mama Elephant.

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