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,

Isn't she adorable?? I used my TriBlends on her. I had a base card already done that I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Then when I found it, I thought it would be perfect for her! 

I hope that you can join us for this challenge! You never might be a winner (although you are all winners in our eyes)!

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!

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!

I am using the digital image from Polkadoodles: Summer Dreams Winnie. She's adorable! So of course I printed her out and colored her with my Tri-Color Markers (love those!) Once I finished the coloring, I found paper that would go along with the colors. Oh, and I also used ink oxide to add color to the sky area. Here she is:
