For You


For You - Time for the last challenge of 2014 at Creative Card Crew.  We will be running this challenge for 3 weeks so that we can have some time with our families while we celebrate the birth of our LORD. 

Our challenge is everyone's favorite- Anything Goes!!

My designer paper is Bo Bunny's Woodland Winter Collection.


We are sponsored by A Day For Daisies and they let us use some of their images to play with. This one is Fashion Present.

I colored her with Copics and distress inked the edges with Iced Spruce.


My border die is MB and I added some gemstones to the center of some of the snowflakes.


Here are a few larger SB snowflakes, again with gemstones.


My sentiment is SU and I used some SNS embossing powder on it.

Winter Beauty


Winter Beauty - This is our last challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy. Sop, sop. I was one of the first designers so I really wanted to keep it going. 

Enough pouting, on to my card.



Here is our final sketch.


My papers are The Paper Studio's Old World Winter, cut with a SB Grand.


My image is Winter Beauty by Stamping Dragon Designs. I loved coloring this image with my Copics. I added some Stickles to the berries and some Prills for the flower centers.

The little pine branches are PTI stamped with Pine Bough distress ink and then I used 3 tiny red pearls for the berries.

Pine Branch


Pine Branch - It is Christmas challenge time at Crafts 4 Eternity.  For my card, I did not use any designer paper. I was letting my grandchildren play with my distress inks and this one was my model. I think it looks like the glow of Christmas lights!!!


My pine branch and pine cone dies are Elisabeth Crafts. I added some red gemstones and some clear sequins.


My sentiment is PTI. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Christmas card and that you will hop on over to the Crafts 4 Eternity blog and see what my team mates did.

Village


Village - Hello friends. I have a new project for you. I made this supper cute village scene for my design team project for Crafts 4 Eternity. Our challenge this week is Winter Wonderland. 


For my little winter village, I use the die that is in the Tinsel and Tags market kit. I love this little house die. The always turn out so cute. I used the stamps with a variety of  distress inks. Then folded them and added some "ice" Stickles. So fun.


I also used different colors of card stock for the houses. It is surprising how different the inks look on kraft verses white. The kit also had these dies that you can layer up, but I just folded them up to make some scenery for my village.


My grandchild loved seeing this. 


I hope you have enjoyed seeing my fun little village and hope to have you play along with us at Crafts 4 Eternity.
