You Ain't Getting!!#X

Once again I used a Stella image from Bugaboo to make a Christmas card. The designer paper is from DCVW"Tis the Season" paper pack. The red cardstock was embossed with a cuttlebug folder. Stella image was colored with copics and embellished with stickles and flower soft. The card was finished off with 4 i-rock studs and a gold mesh ribbon. The inside was stamped lightly with Santa face.

Stuck In The Chimney!

For  my first entry into the CDAC Progressive Challenge # 9,  I choose Crafty Ann's Santa Stuck in the Chimney image. I love using Snow globes to make shaker cards. I used prisma markers to color the image and used flower soft for the snow. Embellished with cardstock ribbons, Cuttlebug corner die and a buckle. Very simple and very quick.

I'm not too sure what happened to this post, but for some reason I did not have it entered properly in the CDAC Progressive Challenge # 8. Here it is again . I just noticed it now so I hope it makes it into the challenge before it closes. Image from Just Some Lines was colored with copics. The doghouse and dog dish is from a close  to My Heart stamp set"BEST FRIEND DOGGIE". I used dimensionals to pop up the dog. I used a cuttlebug folder for the background cardstock. Finished it off with sticker rhinestones.

Stella Be Kind

Here's Stella! Don't we all have a Stella in our lives? Come to think of it I can relate to Stella. He He Designer paper DCWV "Tis the Season" paper pack. I dotted Stickles to add  a little sparkle to the paper. The ribbon was bought from Michaels and I colored Stella using copics once again adding liquid glass to both her shoes  and glasses. I used some craft snow I have had since the 80's on Stellas' hat as I did not have white flower soft .


Bugaboo December Anything Goes


I love my Skelekinz from Bugaboo stamps. This is the first time I have used this particular image and I think she is adorable.  This is also the first time I have used this spellbinders die.  I colored the image with copics and added a bit of sparkle to the ribbon & bow using a gelly roll Stardust pen. I used  double sided tape and sprinkled on  black  glitter for added bling . The silver cardstock was embossed using a cuttlebug folder as well as the inside embossed embellishment. I used the Helens sketch from The Unused Stash Challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge Blog for my inspiration.

Birthday Cake


birthday fishes

I just  love the Make it Snappy digi stamps at Bugaboo they seem to have something  for every occasion and  November is a very busy Birthday month for me. The image was colored with copics and mounted using dimensionals. I doodled with  glitter pens on the green cardstock. The doodling might have looked a little better had I centered the image as planned, but  of course I changed my mind last minute. Red cardstock was embossed using Happy Birthday cuttlebug folder. I finished the card off with 4 i-rock sparkle studs and a little Close to My Heart ribbon.

Boys will be Boys

I used this image from Tiddly Inks as my Grandson loves anything Harry Potter. Image was colored with copics. Dimensionals were used to raise image. The black paper is a velvet paper that I embossed on my cuttlebug. (My son bought me this paper from an art store so I don't know what it is called. I love the look of it however I know it was very expensive so I use it sparingly)  I embellished it with Metal Mesh, screw brads as well as a  broom sticker from a Recollections set.

I used my cuttlebug birthday folder for the lime card stock and added 2 cuttlebug die cuts. The glitter paper is from Reflections. Sentiments from Hero Arts.
