Warmest Wishes

I am trying to get Christmas cards done for my craft fairs which are coming up in November.  I really liked the sketch that Mojo Monday had this week so I decided to play with that one!

Here is my card!

Warm Wishes

I have been challenging myself to use the mounds of items all over my craft desk this week! I have a Jovial card kit from Basic Grey as well as a bunch of random stamp sets so I used them for this card.  I think those penguins are adorable.  The embossed background was another sheet I had lying around so decided to use that as well.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with Mojo Monday to get the creative juices flowing!

Snowflake

Welcome to February!  Already can you believe it?  Soon it will be my birthday 🙂

We begin a new challenge on the Red Carpet Studio blog this week.  Our theme comes from the movie A Winter’s Tale. I actually won an advanced screening to see this movie.  It was ok but not necessarily one of my favorites.  I did enjoy it though.

Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, “Winter’s Tale” is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. (Official Movie Site)

THE CHALLENGE: Use some snowflakes and white paint.  Gesso or molding/modeling paste will also work just as long as its white.

I have started creating Christmas cards again as I start getting ready for the new craft season towards the end of the year.

Here is the card that I created

Isn’t he cute?  He’s called snowflake and he is from Sunsational Stamps .  I had some white puffy paint which I used on my bigger snowflake and then some adirondak paint on the littler ones.  The DP is from my stash as is the Merry Christmas peel and stick.  The image is colored with my copics. I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us at Red Carpet Studio this week.  We have a wonderful prize up for grabs!

Winter Fun

Monday morning and we have a bunch of snow.  Winter has arrived.  **sigh** No doubt to last another 9 months here in Calgary.  In honor of winter and snow, our theme at Use Your Stuff this week is well SNOW!  The DT has created some great projects and here is a Christmas Card I created with some stash items I’ve had for awhile now.

Joy

Happy Happy Joy Joy! Next Friday I am off to sunny Cuba for our annual trip.  CANNOT wait.  We still have cold and snow here, big surprise right????

Ok on to this week’s challenge for 4 Crafty Chicks.  Beautiful bows!   I suck, bigtime with bows!  They never look right so I invested in the bowmaker and it was the best $6 I ever spent!  I use it all the time.

Here is my card for you today

The DP is just some scraps left over from all the Christmas Cards that I have been making.  I cut out the mittens and the scarf from my Winter Wonderland cartridge.  The twine is from my stash as well as the JOY sticker.  I hope you like it.  Please stop by the blog and play along with us this week.

Winter

Ahh another Friday.  I have another craft fair tomorrow, the last one of the season for me this year.  I hope it goes well.

Our challenge at Creative Corner Challenges this week is Heavy Metal…we would like to see some sort of metallic element to your project.  It could be an embellishment, a technique, paper…whatever you like.  We are being sponsored by Crafty Sentiments this week and they are offering some free images to the winner!

Here is my project for you this week using one of the great images from Crafty Sentiments….

The DP for today’s project is from My Mind’s Eye (12 Days of Christmas).  I colored with my copics and added a little bit of stickles to the muff.  I added a little bit of bling and for my metallic element I added a couple of staples in the corner.   The sentiment is from Hero Arts I believe.

I hope you like it and will play along.  Don’t forget to stop by the blog to see the other DT projects this week.

Snowflakes

And here we have another card created for the Core’dinations online crop.  The theme for Clare’s challenge was to use your core’dinations cardstock to make quick and easy Christmas Cards…believe me, you can’t get quick and easier than this.  I think the whole card took me 5 mins to create.  I used the white from the Core’dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors (this paper pack is getting quite the workout over the last few days!).

I knew I wanted to do a white on white card because I really love the look of them and what better theme than snowflakes.  I decided to brush the dust off of my Christmas embossing folders and chose this snowflake one.  I then used a sizzix snowflake die and my SU punches to set the sentiment.  I did a bit of distressing on the edges and added some pearls and bling (oh those little blings are hard to work with!) to set it off.

Make sure you stop by and play along to win some great Core’dinations packs!

 

entered into these challenges:

crafting by designs: anything goes

Lady Anne’s Challenges: more than 1 layer

Our Daily Bread Stamps: inspired by a song (white Christmas)

Again, I apologize for the less than crisp image.  I’m trying to find a new cord for my camera that I usually use for uploading and not having much luck.

The DP is from MME 12 Days of Christmas.  I’m trying to use up my 6×6 packs in their entirety before I start a new one…ummm ya…slow process 🙂    The image is colored with my copics and I added just a bit of stickles to her hair as she is a Christmas Pixie 🙂  The flower just came out of my embellishment box.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will play along with us.
