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,

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #232 - Anything Goes

Hello, fellow crafters! Here it is July already!! Wow! I can hardly believe it! So that means we have a new challenge over at the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog!  The theme for this challenge is: 

~ Anything Goes ~ 

Our sponsors for this challenge are: 
(in alphabetical order) 

Prize ~ 2 Digital Images

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

Prize ~ £8 Gift Certificate
(to be used on digital content only)

Using: Heleniums
Twinkle Lane Designs

I absolutely LOVE this image! I used my Tri-blend markers on the flowers, but for the butterfly I used gel pens. I then made a recessed panel card, using stripes and plain white to set off the colors in the striped paper. I have a lot of 6x6 dsp, and I just need to start using them! I felt this paper in particular  really shows off the flower.

I hope that you will join us for this challenge! It's so fun, and you never just might be a winner! (Although...everyone is a winner in our eyes!)

See you there!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #231 - Buttons or Bows!

 Hello fellow crafters! I'm back again for another challenge over at the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog! For this month, we have the theme of 

~ Buttons &/or Bows ~ 
Our sponsor for this challenge is: 

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

I got to use the lovely image of Ashlee Faerie Locks. Here is my card:

Because of the shape of the image, I decided I'd go ahead and make a slimline card this time around. I love slimline cards (and the mini-slimline cards). They're different and so fun! Of course, the first thing I did was to print and color my image. I used my Tri-Blend color markers for this. Once I got done with that, I adhered her to the card base. Then I added some clear shimmer marker just about everywhere on! I love anything blingy or shiner! Know what I mean? 😉

I figured she needed something at the top left of the card, and since I wasn't quite sure yet who or what occasion I was going to use it for, I decided to just put a flower there. I had bought some flowers at a hobby store and pulled the heads off so I could reattach them in a more "flower looking" state. Then I added the rhinestone.

I hope that you will join us for the challenge! Everyone has such amazing cards, it's not easy to pick the Top 3 each month! Lol. See you there!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #229 - Add a Flower!

(This challenge begins March 9th, 2022)

 Welcome to another Crafty Gals Corner Challenge This challenge theme is Add a Flower! Our sponsor for this challenge is......

Prize ~  $10 Gift Certificate

So for this challenge, I went with a beautiful image called Mum's Blossoms. And it was a freebie! How awesome is that?? Here is my card:

I love coloring flowers. There was a time when I didn't enjoy coloring flowers, but I've been practicing. :) To start off, I printed off my image on my laser printer, then I colored it with the Spectrum Noir color markers. I used a gel pen to color in my sentiment. I then used that same pen and put little dots around the flower, just to use as a filler. I then mounted it on a red glossy paper from Paper Temptress, a wonderful company that has an amazing variety of cardstock. Once that was done, I mounted the pieces onto the white cardstock foundation. And she was done! I did add a sentiment inside also.

I do hope that you will join us for this month's challenge! We love looking at the different ways of using our theme of the month!

Have a wonderful and blessed day,
Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #228 - Add a Heart!

Hello, fellow crafty people! I am soooo very glad and thankful to be back! After being out for awhile due to illnesses, I am finally able to craft again. I'm a little bit shaky, but at least I'm able to try! So, on to the Crafty Gals Corner ChallengeThe theme for this challenge is: 

Add a Heart

Our sponsors for this challenge are: 
(in alphabetical order)


Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

Prize ~ 3 Single Digital Images

Now on to my card from Stampers Delights, Rose 1 . Here it is:
Considering the fact I hadn't colored in awhile and was so sick, I think it looks pretty good. I love doing flowers, and this one is a perfect digital for someone who loves flowers. I used my Tri-Blends to color the image. Once I was done and had my foundation with my matting pieces cut out, I embossed the sides of the colored paper with an embossing folder, and distressed the raised areas of the embossed part.

I then put 3D foam dots underneath the flower to give it more dimension. Adding the hearts was easy to do and gave it more eye appeal. I then added glittered rhinestones.

I do hope you enjoy this project and that you will join us over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenges! The prizes are awesome!

Until next time, Many blessings,
