Are you ready for this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches?

We’ve got an easy sketch but a twist this go round is to add an animal to it!

I found a Simple Stories fall collection in one of my boxes and I thought that this little hedgehog was adorable. So I used some of the stickers from the sheet to go with it for that little blue border and the sentiment. I also added just a few enamel dots for a little bit of color.

Make sure you head to the blog to play along with us this week. Can’t wait to see what critters you have for us to see!

CCC: August

Hello all! I’m here with your mid challenge reminder for our Christmas Craft Creations August challenge.

Here’s this month’s theme!

Now winter activities could be anything, skiing, skating, ice fishing, decorating a tree…..but what about Reindeer Games! 🙂

I had this really cute stamp set that I got for an online card class (which surprise, surprise, I’ve not done yet, and it was from last November!), and it’s from Close To My Heart. I thought it would be really fun to do a bit of a different take on the theme. I stamped out the stamp and sentiment using inks from my Tim Holtz Distress inks and some stampin up as well. The DP is from my stash and I die cut a couple of ovals to set off that image a little bit. I added a few iridescent crystals to finish it off.

Head on over to the blog to play along and win this month’s prize. (Just remember you need to include out monthly theme image as well as a link back to the blog to be entered to win).

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Hello my pretties! Are you ready for this week’s sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches?? Pretty right?

I decided to go with a different orientation for my card than the sketch! I’ve been playing with some new dies that I’ve had sitting on my desk for awhile. I believe the FRIEND is from one of my SCT samplers. The butterfly one I got recently and honestly, I thought it cut the butterflies out openly but I’m kinda glad it doesn’t. This gives you the option of leaving them closed or adjusting the wings a little bit.

The paper is just a plaid from Lawn Fawn and then the little iridescent confetti is Studio Katia. I decided to use some ribbon from my desk instead of the banner for the middle to anchor my sentiment. I’m loving this black embossed background and then these soft subtle colors.

Ok, now it’s your turn. Head over to the blog, play along with our challenge and be sure to check out the projects from the DT.

and the prize on offer for the winner is two images of their choice from the shop. Thanks so much Twinkle Lane

I am using an image called Donut Stack for my card.

I printed out the image on some copic friendly paper and then colored it with my copics. My DP is from Lawn Fawn and then I added a few Nuevo Drops to finish it up.

I hope you will play along with us for this challenge and be sure to stop by and leave the DT some love.

CCC: April

Hey everyone! Have you stopped by the Christmas Craft Creations blog to play along with this month’s challenge? Our theme is Tartan/Plaid.

For my card I started with some buffalo plaid from Miss Kate Cuttables and paired it with some green polka dot paper also from MKC and some green foil cardstock. The ornament is from a Stampin Up punch that I cut out about 6x to give it some thickness and height and then added a sentiment from my stash. I hope this inspires you a little bit for your own project and that you will play along with us as well!

C4G #204 – Autumn/Leaves

Fall is here, although if you are where I am it’s starting to look more like winter **shudder**.

Cardz4Guyz challenge is up!  Our theme this week is Autumn/Leaves, so an autumn card or one that shows leaves as your prominent focus!

I’ve pulled out my autumn box of scrappy goodness to play with over the next few weeks.  In it I found these cute little trees that I had cut out last year for a swap and had some left overs so I thought it would be perfect for this challenge!




I did it on my Cricut Explore Air from the Create a Critter 2 set.  Very cute set!  The DP is just from my stash, I received it in a swap last year so I thought it went perfectly with the tree.  I punched out a bunch of little leaves to go across the bottom and popped them with some pop dots.  The sentiment is a Jenn Hadfield for Pebbles sticker and then I added some Nuvo drops in red to finish it off.

I am excited to do some fall projects  over the next little while because I just love the colors!  Be sure to stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you and hope to see your creation in the link up!
