Holidays in Red

It’s February!  I love February mainly because it is my birthday month!

Here is a quick little card for our Christmas Crafts All Year Round challenge for the month.  Our theme is RED.  Your project should show red as the predominant color.

All the elements for this card are just from my Christmas stash.  I used a project life card as the focal point and then just built around that using some DP, twine, a red doily and some bling.  Nothing fancy but definitely screams RED!  I hope you like it and please play along with us this month and show us your red creations!

CCAYR- A Wintery Thanks

Here we are! Our first challenge of 2018 on the Christmas Cards All Year Round blog!  Our theme is THANKS!  In keeping with our challenge, it has to have a Christmasy/winter theme to it.

I had fun creating this card – I used some left over pieces from a card kit that I got from Scrapshotz.  The die cut deer I received in a swap and I love it!  I added some glittered accents in red for a pop of color.  Also, the thanks is from Stampin -up I believe. A few little gems to finish it off.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and play along with us! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Hello all! These holidays sure take the time away from my crafting! I know it’s been awhile.  I’m really hoping to be posting a lot more regularly going forward.

Today is my highlight day on the Kitty Bee Designs blog!  I am using this adorable guy called Snowman Panda which can be found in the store here

 

I just went with some simple copic coloring and lots of layers.  For some added oomph I did some glitter paper layers, just for a bit of sparkle.  I finished it off with some Nuvo drops in red and then a few little holiday embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by!

I decided to do some non-traditional colors for this card.  I did some smooching with my Tim Holtz distress inks in picked raspberry and peacock feathers.  The stamps are from Hampton Arts.  I think he’s just adorable.

BSC #272

Hey again!

Our new monthly challenge is up at Brown Sugar Challenges.  Our theme is Breast Cancer Awareness.  I know last month was the actual month for this, but we are extending it one more month because it is such an important issue.

Our sponsor is Di’s Digis

Picture

For my card I just chose to create a Christmas card but kept the pink theme for BCA.

dav

I colored the image with my copics.  The DP is from Snow Day by Crate Paper and the PEACE sentiment is from Stampin Up.,  I added a few sequins and a few little pearl dots from Nuvo.  I hope you like it and please play along with us this month!  Remember you can use anything that makes you think of BCA – the color pink, the ribbon symbol, perhaps it is an image that you found to help a friend or loved one as they battle this terrible disease.

We can’t wait to see what you create!
