Yeti Christmas


Here today with another image by LeighSBDesigns, actually a few images, as they all come separate in the file and you can put them together or not use them. The yeti, scarf, hat, tree and there are presents too which I didn't use. Anway, I have colored the images with copics the scarf and hat I merged together on my computer with the yeti before printing, the tree was separate. I did a background using a stencil and popped the image up onto the stencil. and completed the card using red ribbon and then layered gold on top added the mittens, which were plain, but had these small tress so added them and the greeting is a sticker.

I used 2 stencils brick wall ( Rabbit Hole Designs), and tree bark (StampAnniething) I used Fired Brick distress ink for the brick, then I masked it off and used the tree bark with soft suede and crumbcake inks. I then stamped the caffeine symbol, and other stamps from Extreme Elements and Touches of Texture from Stampin Up as well as I added the sign buggy for caffeine which is a sentiment that comes with the bugs. I colored and die cut the bugs from Rabbit Hole Designs. out  and placed them on my scene, and mounted the scene onto a base.

Rudolph Selfie


Hi Everyone, here to share my first DT project for SheepSki Design Stamps. I just love this image, it is a hoot. I colored rudoph with Copics, and then decided to add camera with the words OH SNAP, and then Merry Christmas at the bottom, but felt like it was missing something so added the gems, and still thought no still not right, so the second camera in the opposite colors was added, and I love how it turned out, what do you think?

 Hi Everyone, here today with a new card for the Cardz4Guyz challenge, this challenge we are celebrating the season of fall by using those colors. I have taken an oldie but goodie stamp set Lovely as a tree and stamped it onto white card stock, and then I used my inks along with a stencil brush and pounced the colors on the trees, and also on the ground. so simple but a neat effect. I layered this onto a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and put it onto the card base which is covered in paper from the old Spice Cake designer paper, which yes I have lots of old paper, I then added a piece of burlap and the sentiment, which is from an unknown company, as they were a gift. and I cut out some leaf dies and added them on.

 Hi Everyone, this is my card for the current Make My Monday Challenge, which starts today, and we are asking for everyone to use predominately orange on your cards. this is my card for the challenge. 

The flowers are a stamp set I have had for awhile and don't remember where from I stamped them onto Copic paper and colored them with my copic markers.  I used the die to cut them out but of course I like to fussy cut even more, so did this then added the leaves and extra flower to the branch, used my punch to make the bow. I put it onto a piece of textured white oval which was placed onto a spellbinders die, and then placed onto a card front that was layered again with the textured white. I have left off a sentiment for now as I am not sure what I will use the card for.

A Cute Brag Book


Hi Everyone, here today to share a cute brag book  I did  for the Besties 3D and More team.  I used paper from the You Drive me Batty Paper pack as well as the You Drive Me Batty Fussy cuts that I received last year as part of a kit. 

I first of all made sure all the papers were even in size 6 by 6, and scored them in half at 3 inches, as this is single sided paper I glued the wrong sides together on three side and created pockets, for extra pictures or some journalling cards whatever a person wishes to use it for. I then made the cover and back by cutting the paper in half, and using one half on each side otherwise it would be just the back of the paper, then decorated the front by using a piece of glittery mesh and a Fussy Cut Bestie, that was also part of the kit. well you can find the paper in the store as well as the 3d Besties which you can print out on card stock and if you have a silhouette or a Brother Scan n Cut use them to cut them out to do the same.
