Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #239 Winter Fun

 


 Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you are having a wonderful new year, full of goals and crafty projects. We have a new challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner, starting today. The challenge is "Winter Fun".

I played with the image from Leann's World named "Erica" this month.

 

When I was a little girl, I was mesmerized by the ice skaters and had a dream of once being an ice skater.  I got on the ice once and could not stand up.  "Erica" on the other hand I think is a beautiful ice skater. Here is the card I created with her.

The background of the card was made using "Build a Scene- Snow Drift" die set from Taylored Expressions and different shades of blue cardstock.

I then added some "Fresh Snow" medium also from Taylored Expressions to the top of the white layer of cardstock.

To finish the background, I added some Jolene's snowflake stickers, some Sparkle silk and the sentiment from Lawn Fawn stamped in Black ink.

Erica was colored with Copics:

Skin: E21, E00, E000

Hair: E27, E33, E31

Dress: B05, B01, B000

Merry Christmas Challenge Blog

 


Today we have a new challenge at Merry Christmas Challenge Blog where the theme is always Christmas.

I created a card using Lawn Fawn stamps.

The background is created using some pattern paper from Echo Park's Gingerbread House paper pack.  The top half, I created using the snowball stamp included in the Lawn Fawn stamp set with blue ink.

I then created the "snowglobe" by stamping the images and coloring them.  I then stamped and layered on top.

I finished the card by adding my sentiment and added an organza bow.

Mix-it Up Challenge Blog- Anything Goes with optional twist

 


Today we have a challenge have a new challenge at Mix it Up Challenge Blog.  The theme is anything goes with an optional twist of no stamping.

The card I created, had a stamped sentiment, but the majority of the card is die cut. 

I created the background of the card using the Gingerbread House paper pack from Echo Park.  I then used a new die to me by Sizzix, to create the reindeer.  I added some white ink to his eyes and used a black sharpie for the mouth.

To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment from Simple Stories with brown ink and cut the banner piece.

Love to Craft Challenge Blog- Anything Goes

 


Today we have a new challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.  The theme is always anything goes and today I have a fun shaker card to share.

I created the background with a background stamp from Taylored Expressions.  I then colored the snowman hats and noses with my markers.

To make the shaker part, I added a cellophane bag to the card, only attaching it on three sides.  I then added my sparkle elements and then sealed up the fourth side.  I fun shaker without all the bulk of foam tape.

I finished the card by adding one of the snowmen from the background and a sentiment I stamped with black ink from Taylored Expressions.
