Christmas Card Challenges Week 4

Hello crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday :) 

Today marks the beginning of another challenge at 

The challenge is:


When I saw this photo I was inspired by the gifts wrapped so neat and pretty.
Here is the card that I created with that in mind:


I love this little Elf! I stamped him up and then did a little masking so that the gifts could be situated slightly behind him. I colored in everything with my copics and paper pieced the silver presents with the glitter paper. I sat it aside and then started building my card. One of my goals this year is to actually use/do some of the items that I pin on pinterest so I went to my card sketches folder and picked a sketch to use. The sketch I picked is an older one from My Favorite Things
I built all my layers according to the sketch and then added my colored image panel to the front of the card. For the three silver dots, I simply used a standard hole punch (for school notebook paper) and punched them out of the same glitter paper. I thought that was a neat way to add a little more shimmer. Can't have too much shimmer when it comes to Christmas cards right? lol!

Be sure to head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see the amazing cards my design team sisters created. I hope you are inspired and decide to join us and play along with the challenge. I would love to see what you create :)

If You Give A Crafter A Cookie #60

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Thursday!!
Today starts the beginning of a new challenge over at
Woot Woot!!


There are two sponsors for this challenge and they are:
and

Here is the photo inspiration for challenge #60:


Adorable cookies right??

Here is the card I created based on the above photo:



I started with a gray cardbase and added some pink graph patterned paper. I printed out my Little Penguin Winter image from Bugaboo Stamps onto some Copic friendly cardstock and colored her up with the cookie colors as my inspiration for her beanie hat. For the snow, I added some liquid applique to the flakes and the ground and then used my heat tool to fluff it up. I love doing that for winter cards lol! I matted my image onto some gray cardstock and popped it up with some foam tape onto the card front. I added some fun little snowflake confetti to the card and added a little bling to the center of each one. I finished it off by adding some glossy accents to the penguin's nose and eyes.

You're beary sweet


Hey there crafty friends!
I hope that your Wednesday is off to a wonderful start!

Today I  am here to share a card that uses some of those fabulous 
Pink & Main stamps and dies!

BlogButton




Now that the holiday's are over, I need to make a few thank you cards and get them in the mail. I stamped this bear from the Furever stamp set and used one of the faces from the Mini Faces Set 3 and colored her in with my Copics. I used the Furever dies ( I love having coordinating dies!) to cut out my bear and placed her on top of a white square panel that I created from the Stitched Rounded Square Dies. I used one of the dies in the Scallop Borders set to cut out a white scallop border to attach to my plaid paper. I adhered some ribbon and a bow and layered everything onto my Kraft card base. For my greeting, I stamped that sentiment from the Animal Faces set with some VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it with some white embossing powder. I finished off my little bear with a few random highlights with a white gel pen.

Shopping Our Stash #285

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #285 is....
Stickle Me Elmo!
(Use some Stickles on your project)

Here is what I created:


I decided to use this challenge as a way to get a jump start on some of my Valentine's. I kept my card pretty simple so that it would be pretty easy to mail. I used a scallop rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs and stamped my greeting onto the bottom corner. That cute little girl came from the Sent With Love SVG file from KaDoodle Bug Designs. After I had her all cut out, I stamped a sweet little face onto her and then assembled her. I popped her bangs and the middle heart on her banner up with some foam tape for some added dimension. I brought out my trusty red stickles, which I haven't used in a really long time, and applied a thin coating to the hearts. I used a small and cheap paint brush to spread the stickles so that I got a pretty even layer of coverage. I added some pink pearl "earrings" and a few sequins to my card to finish it off. I think it looks kinda plain but I also really like that the focus is on that cute little SVG.

Neglected items from my stash that I used are:
  • Red Stickles! I can't think of the last time I used colored stickles! (pretty funny cause I used to be obsessed and had to have every color at the time)
  • Sent With Love SVG. I don't use my Cricut and SVG's like I used to.
  • Peachy Keen Face Stamps
  • Pearls. I normally gravitate towards sequins/bling/enamel dots lately.

Be sure to stop by the Shopping Our Stash challenge blog to see the amazing creations my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to play along with us, I would love to see what you create.

DCWV Jan. Stack-a-Holic Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday!!
Today I would like to share a card that I made for the 

Here is the card sketch for the month of January:


and here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:


For my card, I used some pretty pink textured cardstock from the Brights Adhesive Cardstock Matstack. I added a piece to my card base and then lightly sanded around the perimeter of the card to bring out some of the white core. The polka dot paper is beautiful isn't it? I love all that foil! I got that from The Silver Lining Stack, die cut it out and popped it up on my card front with some foam tape. I cut out my hearts from more of that pretty pink cardstock and heat embossed my greeting onto a black cardstock strip. I finished off my card with some glossy accents on the smaller hearts. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and take a look at my latest creation!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
