Jolly Holiday's

                                      
Hi Everyone,

Todays card was made for the Just Magnolia challenge white plus one other color. The card base is 5.5x4.25 and I used the eyelet border punch along the bottom of the front and back.. I didn't measure the layers but I used my big shot with the cuttlebug snowflake folder. On the top layer I used stickles and green dots. Sorry again the photo is not showing how pretty it really is. the bottom layer is only the snowflakes no glitter. I have to learn the names of the Tilda stamps so I can at least let you know the one I used. She is colored with copics. I used the cuttlebug on the ribbon but it didn't show up much at all. Finished off the card with a bow, green gems and some stitching. Thank you for stopping by to visit, happy creating everyone!

Let It Snow!

I have used a combination of items on this card. The card base is 5x7 with a layer 6x4.75 DSP. I used a magnolia christmas stamp. I put a lot of dazzling diamonds on the image but the photo is not showing it has any. So sorry you can't see how pretty it really is.  I used create a critter for the little rudolph. I drew in the eye and mouth adding a red rhinestone for the nose. Added more rhinestones in top right corner and on the sentiment. I finished it off with a sheer ribbon with sparkles in it. I am adding this card into eight challenges.

A Taste of Christmas

Hi everyone,

Today's card is a very simple one. The card  base is 5x7, the layer is 4.75x6.75. The DSP was so pretty that I didn't add any more images to it. I did take a stylus and dry embossed some of the area's to make it show up better but the photo doesn't give it justce. I also applied some dazzling diamonds to the center pods but it doesn't show up well either. I added the ribbon and the sentiment is again from Pink by Design. I am entering this card into the Totally Gorjuss challenge, they are asking for traditional Christmas colors. Anything Goes Challenge is emboss it. I did use the stylus to dry emboss so I think it should apply to this card. Elephantastic Challenge is make a card with a butterfly or a Christmas card. Thanks you for stopping by for a visit, happy Creating everyone!

Stamp Set: Pink by Design Winter
Paper: very vanilla. Recollections Christmas stack
Ink: memento black
Accessories: ribbon, stylus, mouse pad for the embossing, dazzling diamonds

Candy Cane Tilda

Hi Everyone,

I decided I wanted to make something different for a card today so I embroidered my card using my sewing machine. The card base is very vanilla cut at 5.5x4.25. I added a layer of DSP in cream color with the embrodery added to it. I colored tilda with copics, cut her out and popped her up with dimentionals. The ribbon is from the dollar store and the sentiment is Pink by Design winter set.  I am quite happy with how this card turned out.   I have done embroidery on cards before and I will do it again. I am entering this card into the Christmas Card Challenge and the requirement is an Inspiration photo.Crazy 4 Challenges is make a christmas card. 2 Sisters Challenge is christmas.Thanks for stopping by for a visit, happy creating everyone.

Snow Much Fun Reindeer!

I still have quite a few christmas cards to make so here is today's card. Bah! Humbug! challenge this week is use a reindeer and Dottie's World challenge is anything goes and use red. The ABC Challenge is H for holidays. A Spoonful of Sugar challenge is snow/snowflakes. The card base is 5x7 and the snowflake layer is 6.75x4.75. The snowflakes are flocked and that was how the paper came. I took some white CS and ripped the edge to look like a snow bank and added a bit of blue at the top. I then painted some glitter all over it and added some stars. My reindeer is cut from Christmas cheer cartridge at 5". The top layer was cut in white and I used my copics to color  him in. I added a bit of white on the antlers and black gel pen on the face. The modern lable punch was used to cut the sentiment out. I then added the metal brads using the irock. To finish off the card I used a large red gem for the nose. Thanks for stopping by for a visit, happy creating.

The Season Of Giving

Hi everyone,

I have made this card for  for More Than Favors challenge, Lexi's Creations challenge, Incy Wincy Designs challenge, Craft You Passion challenge, Iris's Spot challenge, Dottie's World challenge and the theme for them is anything goes.  Charisma Cardz challenge theme is Christmas. Crafty Cardmakers challenge is stitching. The card base is white but for some reason it looks more on the pink side in the photo. I am really quite please with the magnolia Tilda coloring. I find the more I use the copics the better it seems to work on my images.  I colored the Magnolia Tilda and the poinsetta stamp with copic markers. I used stickles on some of the background to give it some sparkle. The snowflake is a sizzlet die and cut  using the big shot. The snowflake didn't seem to show up like I thought it should so I used stitching to make it pop a bit. I also used the stitching around the card layer.I like using doodles and ribbon on my cards so very seldom will you not see any. Thanks for stopping by for a visit, happy creating everyone!
