Isn't she a little cutie? I used my Tri- colored markers to color her. Then I placed her onto a multi-colored glitter paper. It was perfect for this card. I then added the sentiment "I feel so lucky".

Crafty Gals Corner Challenges - Add a Heart

 Hello, all you beautiful crafters! We are beginning a new challenge today over at the Crafty Gals Corner. I hope that you will join us! The theme for this challenge is: 

~ Add a Heart! ~

Our sponsors for this challenge are:

Prize ~ 3 Sets of Digis

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

A note from Rachelle Anne Miller:
I am an artist & designer living in the beautiful Adelaide Hills in South Australia with my husband and three amazing children! I love to create and am especially drawn to all things cute. I've worked on children's books, greeting cards, craft supplies, children's room decor, tech accessories, and more. I love to bring out joy and imagination in my art and create something a little different to inspire and make you smile.

So I've chosen the digital Apple Picking stamp. It's adorable! Here is what I did with it...

I colored this little cutie with my Tricolor Blend Spectrum Noir markers. All I did was print it out onto an A2 card, then color it. I sprinkle a little glitter on it, but unfortunately, that's not showing up. (sad face). And it has 2 hearts on it, so I'm happy with the way it turned out!

I hope that you will join us! It's always a pleasure to see what you all have created! Bye for now!

Isn't it just adorable?? He looks very happy and having a lot of fun, sliding by to say Thank you! I used glitter on the mat behind the snowman, and a red mat behind that. Colored the snowman with my Tri-Blend Markers, added the sentiment, and I was done! Pretty simple, isn't it?

MLCCB #46-Anything Christmas Goes

 Hello everyone! Welcome to another new challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge! What an honor it is to be one of the designers! I hope you will join us! 

Here is what I chose to make:

I love this card. I used Tim Holtz Christmas dies (Holly Pieces) for this and I added the Believe hot foil piece and added lots of little red dots into the white spaces and added a sliver of red glitter ribbon to the left side. Easy and yet so elegant!

I hope that you will join our challenge! And until next time,

Christmas in July - Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #232

Hello, fellow crafters! Guess what time it is?? It's time for a new monthly challenge over at The Crafty Gals Challenge Blog! The theme for this challenge is: 

~ Christmas in July ~

Our sole sponsor for this challenge is  

Prize ~  $10 Gift Certificate

I just LOVE Christmas! So I'm always excited to make something for Christmas! And it's never too early to start making Christmas cards! I never seem to have enough or I forgot someone! 😲 So, here I have my card, using a Poinsettia Set from Beccy's Place:

I love working with poinsettias. They add a special classy touch to a card. So the first thing that I did, was to print my images onto a white cardstock (Paper Temptress) using my laser printer. Then I placed red deco foil onto the image and sentiment and ran it through my laminator. I was going to leave it white, but I thought it too plain, so I colored the image. I placed that onto a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" of red mounting paper. And then it was done! 

I hope that this card inspires you to do a Christmas creation and to join our challenge! We always have such wonderful cards come in!

Thank you for stopping by!
Blessings, Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw

MLCCB #45 Anything Christmas Goes

 Hello, everyone! And welcome to my blog! Today, I'm excited to share with you my card as a new Designer with Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog (or MLCCB). I've been wanting to get on a Christmas team, but with all the sicknesses I have dealt with for several months, I just wasn't able to do any searches. And now that I'm feeling better, I have become one of the designers over at MLCCB! :)

So, here it is, July 1st (can this be right??), and we begin our challenge #45. Be sure to check out the blog and enter! It'll be fun! 

I started by making a fairly simple Christmas card. Here it is:

First I made a base for my card. And....because I got the new hot foil glimmer machine, I of course had to use it! I wanted this to be an all foil card, so I did the sentiment in blue, with the pine leaves. I also used a Sizzix die to cut out an oval frame using gold foil paper from Paper Temptress. I got the foil plates from Spellbinders

It was a pretty simple card, but with the foil it gives it a class of elegance (I hope!). I hope that this card will inspire you to join us for this challenge! It can be ANYTHING CHRISTMAS, not just cards! Most of all, just have fun!

Blessings! Until next time,
Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw
