A Cheerful Snowman

 The card I have to share with you today is an image from The Paper Shelter by the name of  A Cheerful Snowman.  I absolutely love snowmen and a snowman in blue green is simply awesome in my eyes.  The Paper Shelter just happens to be our sponsor over at Crafty Creations Challenges for the month of January, 2021.


I colored the image up with various blue green, a touch of gray and blue violet  Copic Markers.  Then I cut the snowman out, added some color to a 5.75x5.75 piece of CS with some Distress Oxide ink in Evergreen Bough. I spritzed the background with water.  Created a sentiment with my computer and colored it with some of the same blue green Copics.  I used a few snowflakes from a stamp set which I embossed with some white embossing powder.  After my background was finished I added the snowman and the sentiment with some pop dots.  Then I added the background to a 6x6 card base and my card was finished.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you will hop on over to Crafty Creations Challenges and join in on our monthly challenge.  The theme as always is Anything Goes.

It's Tensel Time

It's my turn to host over at Craft-Dee-BowZ.

For my project, I created this very simple but cute card using a stamp set that I had bought last year from Avery Elle. I wanted a black and white card with a touch of red, so I stamped two of my favorite trees and then stamped the snowy hillside all in black ink. And then the sentiment in red. Last but not least I added some of the falling snow from the stamp set and my stamping was finished.


Then I created a bow using my Craft-Dee-BowZ tool and adhered it to the card and my simple but yet cute card was finished. 

I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is The Paper Shelter.  


She has some adorable images so please pay her a visit, I'm sure you will find something in her shop that you will enjoy.


Until next time,

Red and Green Ornaments

The card I have to share with you today is an image from Jan's Digi Stamps by the name of  Ornaments.  I have been making a lot of Christmas cards with ornaments this year.  When I seen this image I just had to have it.  And guess what it's free so go grab it while you can.  Jan's Digi Stamps just happens to be our sponsor over at Crafty Creations Challenges for the month of December, 2020.


I colored the image up with various red and green Copic Markers adding shading in areas where I thought there should be.  Then I took a gold and silver and gel pen to add the detail on the ornaments.  I then colored the bow in different shades of yellow copics.  I added the card onto a piece of printed design paper and layered it to the card base.

Welcome Fall

For my card today, it was my turn to host over at Craft-Dee-BowZ.

For my project, I created this cute card using the front door dies from Spellbinder Dies.  I cut out all of the pieces for the front door.  Then I used some Tim Holtz Grit paste and a brick stencil to create the front of the house.  After I created this piece I then started building the front door.  Then I created a Fall Wreath, placed the card front onto an A2 size card base and my Welcome Fall card was almost finished.


To complete my card I made a tiny bow using my Craft-Dee-BowZ tool and adhered it to the wreath. 

I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Bugaboo Stamps.
