Welcome my pretties!  I’m giving you the deets on our new challenge over at Color Crazy….  as always, the theme is anything goes!   Our sponsor this week is Polkadoodles!

Display our badge...

I’ve created this card using the Polkadoodles image called “Snowman – Winnie Angel” as well.  I knew for this card I really wanted to go with the traditional red/green color scheme and so I just used some Recollection paper that i had in my stash.  I added some snowflakes that I recently picked up at the $$ store which I just love!  I colored her with my copics and then added a strip of washi and a word sticker to finish it off.  For a little extra fun, I did one edge in a fun border punch.

Your turn!  What are you coloring this week????

Do you Want to Build a Snowman….

Ya, we are into Tuesday.

Have you popped over to the Cardz4Guyz blog yet?  This week’s challenge is up – it’s SNOWMEN!  Yeah!

So I have been trying to use up bits and bobs that seem to be all over my desk as of late.  So for a fun challenge, I only used things for this card that were within arms reach and I think that it turned out really well.

The DP was in my scrap box and the image was one of the ones in my image box  ( I do a lot of image swaps with my FB group!).  I did a bit of coloring on the snow man and then added the sentiment and some red enamel dots.  Not a fancy card but a lovely one just the same.

I hope that you play along with us over at C4G!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Let it Snow

Wow! Here we are in December!  Can you believe it….our tree is up,  the Elves on a Shelf have arrived, my holiday baking is started….yep, the holidays are here.

It’s a new challenge up here at Pile It On.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Sentiments Designs!

Our theme is Shaped cards!  I haven’t done any for a long, long time.  So I pulled out a die that I’ve not used forever from sizzix.  It’s the triple circle flip.  So I used it with the Harriet and Lantern image.  I paired it with some Jolee’s Boutique Holiday paper pack.  I also added some red foil paper that I found in one of my drawers and hadn’t used in such a while.

The little stamp set is from Stampin Up.  A few glittered snowflakes and red Nuevo dots and we are done!

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.

Life is Good

I hope you all had an awesome weekend and remembered to set your clocks back an hour!  My favorite time of year. 🙂

Our Pile It On challenge is up and running!  Our great sponsor this month is Dr. Digi

The theme for this month is Pets/Animals.  Always a fun one!

I am using the digi Sofa So Good which I though was just adorable!

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!

Be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT have created for you.  Looking forward to seeing what you create!~

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!

Merry, Merry

Yep, it’s October and I’m making Christmas cards!  Nuts right?  We’ve already had snow, so it makes perfect sense!

Our October challenge is up on the Christmas Crafts All Year Round blog and this month our theme is

SANTA / ELF/ FAIRY

Your project should have at least one of those three elements!  Mine has 2.  🙂

I took my inspiration from this card I saw on Pinterest:

153 Likes, 6 Comments - Studio Katia (@studiokatia) on Instagram: “Olga (@olga.moss)’s card features new Friends of Winter Stamp Set with added cute googly eyes and…”

and I put together this!

dav

The stamp is a new one I just picked up from Studio Katia that I thought was so adorable!  I stamped and colored the elves and Santa with my copics and then cut out one elf to be popped up.  I cut out the Merry from the Stampin Up Christmas Thinlits about 4 times from glitter paper and layered them together.  The last step was to add some Pearlized Smooch for the hats/bears and then some Nuvo drops in a white to add the snow everywhere.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us this month.  Stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you!
