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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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
