So we are halfway through the month and a mid-month reminder for our Pile It On Challenge…… Pets!  Now this go round, it’s Pets and/or your favorite way to color an image.

We are still being sponsored by Dr. Digis.

 

So my card for this week is a cute lil thing.  I stamped this image when I was at a friend’s house, so I don’t know who it is by.  I colored it with my Copics, which is my usual go to coloring method and then added a bit of glossy accents and some pop dots to the hat.  The DP is from Simple Stories and I added just a few sequins and some Nuvo drops in clear to finish it off.

I needed to keep this as flat as possible as I plan to mail it out to my Baker’s Dozen Partner so I went with lots of layers.  The DP is from Lawn Fawn and Echo Park.  I colored the image with Copics and then cut it out with my MFT Crossstich Rectangle Die.  A few Nuovo dots and we are good to go!

Little Gingerbread

Good Morning!  Our new challenge is up and rearing to go on the Christmas Cards All Year Round blog!  Our November theme is a cute one – GINGERBREAD!  To be entered to win this month’s prize, your project will need to have gingerbread in some fashion on it!  Maybe your DP, or perhaps your image or a die cut!  Get creative and then we want to see it!

Here’s mine for you!

My DP is from recollections and I paired it with a cute image that I had in my stash and colored it with copics.  The MERRY CHRISTMAS sentiment are some fun stickers from Pink Paislee’s Merry & Bright Collection.

 

I added just a few sequins and snowflakes for my stash and a bit of wink of stella for some sparkle.

I hope you will play along with us this month!

Winter’s Peace

Oh my gosh! Here we are in the last full week of October.  This year has just flown by, or maybe it’s just me….

I’m still working primarily on Christmas cards to prepare for my craft fair in November, so I have a lovely one to share with you today for the Cardz4Guyz challenge this week.  Our theme is Into the Woods – creating a project that has an aspect of the woods to it.  It could be a woodland creature, leaves, trees, rustic etc.  Lots of ideas to play around with.

I’ve had this die cut sitting on my desk waiting to be used for quite awhile now.  It was sent to me in a swap and I’ve been longing to use it up so I just decided that this was it.  I chose to go with a White on White card, probably because I rarely do them but they just look so good!

I paired the image with the falling snow enbossing folder from Stampin Up as well as the Christmas Thinlits PEACE which I cut out of some silver foil.  The bling is from my stash and then I went over the image with a bit of Wink of Stella for just a hint of shimmer.

I hope it makes you smile and I also hope that you will hop over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created and also to play along with us.  We would love to see what you are creating this week!

 

The Wine

We are at the halfway point in our Pile it On challenge of Orange/Black/Purple.  In case you forgot, we are being sponsored by Ike’s Art this month.

For this week’s card I went with a bit of a fun Halloween card using the colors.  The image is from Miss Kate Cuttables and I flattened it in my cricut explore and then cut it out.  The sentiment was a free one that I got online from LoveSVGonline.com  They have sooo many free images that you can use, it’s crazy!

dav

I added a bit of glossy accents and some wink of stella, just to give it some sparkle and shine.  I also thought it would be fun with some enamel dots.  The DP is just from my stash.  I hope you think it’s fun and don’t forget to play along with us!

Entered into these challenges:

As You Like It: CAS or Fun & Fancy (and why) – I always struggle with CAS cards as I like to add lots of layers and bits and bobs..this is a bit on the simpler side and still (I think) a fun card without all the frills and bits.

Southern Girls Critter Crazy

It’s time for another Southern Girls challenge!  Our theme this week is Critter Crazy (no doubt you are all making tonz of fun Halloween, Fall or Christmas cards already with adorable critters, so this will be right up your alley!).

We have 2 awesome sponsors for you Krafters Cart

and All Dressed Up

 

For my card I’m highlighting a stamp set that can be found in the Krafter’s Cart store .  It’s Lawn Fawn’s Winter Skies!

I recently attended a card class with the Lovely Rosie N with Scrapshotz  and we made this awesome double slider card.  Not going to lie, it took a little time, but honestly, once you do the first one, using this technique over and over will become so easy!

 

dav

The snowman stamp is also from lawn fawn as is the actual double slider die (also found in the store).  We used some distress inks for the skies and a little embossing for our Santa.

I hope you like it and be sure to play along with us at Southern Girls for this fun challenge.  Can’t wait to see what you create!
