Avery Elle Challenge #18

I made this card for the current Avery Elle Challenge. The theme is holiday. I've had this snowman for a while and I really wanted to use him. I used Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane papers. I colored the snowman with a white chalk marker to make him a slightly different white than his hat. The tag die is from Pretty Pink Posh. Thanks for stopping by!

Don't forget the 12 Days of Holiday Projects starts next Monday, December 1. I've got lots of cards, ornaments, banners, decor items, etc... to share with you. I can't wait!!



Christmas Card Challenges #52

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. This week we have an inspiration photo challenge. Since the colors were sort of dark and it's a tree, I was inspired to make a card using my Tim Holtz Blue Prints Tree stamp. I colored the images with Distress Markers and added some Stickles to the star and the ornaments. The colored papers match Tim's color palette, they're Kraft Coordinations. I'm excited to see what you come up with this week for this fun challenge. Thanks for stopping by!'

Welcome Baby!

Today the other girls and I at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge have a fun post for our designer Lalo Ik. Lalo had her fifth baby a month ago today on October 22, 2014. We each made a mixed media baby project as a way to say Congratulations to Lalo and her new bundle of joy. Be sure to head on over to The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge to see a picture of her new little guy and check out the other projects from The MMMC design team.

I made an 8x10 canvas. I covered it with starry theme papers, then painted over the background in a medium/dark blue color. I wanted to be able to see some of the papers underneath. Then I added some colorful crafty sticks from Hobby Lobby and a wooden star from Michaels. I painted the star with yellow acrylic paint and covered the inner raised star with Stickles.

I sprayed the canvas letters from Little Yellow Bicycle with Dylusions spray inks. When I was finished I outlined the star, the canvas and the letters with Stampers Big Brush Pens in similar colors. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go leave Lalo some love on the post at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.

Christmas Card Challenges #51

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. This week we have another color challenge. I really love these colors and thought these new stamps I got would be perfect for these colors. The stamps are JOFY by Paper Arsty. I think they are perfect for one layer cards. I colored the snowmen with Copic markers. I'm excited to see what you come up with this week for this fun challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

Here is the inspiration photo:


Here's my card.
