Michelle Perkett's Group Challenge




Hi everyone. Today I have my creation for Michelle Perkett's Group Challenge. I followed the sketch that was provided. I used an image from Michelle and colored her with my copic markers along with Adobe Fireworks CS4. I used metallic green card stock for my base and some contrasting papers from my stash. Since I love glitter I added some to the image and along my distressed edges of my paper. To complete my card I added a few silver pearls, silk flowers and a double silver heart charm.

Time To Sleep




Hello everyone, I have another creation to add to a couple of challenges. The sketch is from Sketch Saturday Challenge and the theme Let's Get Fuzzy is from Nina at There's Magic In The Air Challenge. My papers are from my Christmas stash and the image is a freebie from Nina. I colored the image with my copics and added some glitter glue along with yellow glitter fibers. I used my Christmas light Nestabilities die and colored them with my copics. I used a white felt lace border on the bottom of my card. I added a sentiment and a few gems to complete my creation.

Peace Angel




Hi everyone. I am finally back in the groove and I created an ornament yesterday to post for a couple of challenges. I made an ornament or you can use it as a door knob hanger for the Holidays. The sketch is from The Friday Sketchers Challenge and the theme is from The Crafty Catz Challenge. My image is from Mo's Digital Pencil called Sending Peace. I colored this lovely image with copic markers and added a little glitter glue to it. I used coordinating papers and I distressed them a little around the edges. I punched two holes at the top of the card and used two eyelets so I could add some organza ribbon to hang it by. I used a decorative piece of ribbon, some pretty flower gems, a couple of pearls and a sentiment to complete my creation.

Thank You For Being a Friend



I have another creation to add to a couple of challenges. The first challenge is Friday Sketchers who provided the sketch. The next challenge is La La Land Crafts Challenge and their theme is thankful. I used papers from a couple of my stashes and my image is from La La Land Crafts called Rosie with bird. I colored my image with copic markers and used my Nestabilities die to cut her out with. I added some braided ribbon to the corners and a few gems. I also added a couple of prima flowers, a sentiment and a double heart charm. A touch of glitter gave just a little sparkle.

Santa Ornament




Good morning everyone. I have another creation that I did last night. This one is for The Pink Elephant Challenge and Diecut Dreams Challenge. The sketch is from the Pink Elephant and the theme Santa is from Diecut Dreams. I used my Fiskars lace circle punch for my base and some decorative paper. I found this image on the Internet of a vintage Santa and colored it with copics. I used some of my music paper and some gold tassel fringe. A few sparkles and a bow completed my creation.

Penguin Skate


Well, I have another creation to add to a few challenges. Sketch Saturday provided the sketch. There's Magic in the Air provided this cute digital image by Nina. Creatalicious Challenge has a theme of snowflakes and sparkle. The Cupcake Craft Challenge wants us to use a digital image and Crafty Creations Challenge wants us to use metal or metallic finishes. I used a silver metallic paper for my card base and added other papers from my stash. I colored my image in Adobe Fireworks CS4. I am starting to like the look I get using this software. I found a hologram paper that I cut out with one of my Nestabilities dies and I used a white glitter paper that I cut out using my Nestabilities scallop lace border die. I added some paper snowflakes, a sentiment, some glitter glue and a snowflake charm to complete my card.

St Nicholas


Close up of St Nick Image

Well I have another creation and this one is for The Winter Wonderland Challenge. I had a lot of fun doing this card. I didn't have an image of St Nicholas so I decided to be creative. I took a photo of a Santa from the Internet and by using Adobe Photoshop CS4 I transformed it in to a stamp like image. I am very pleased with the way it came out. What do you think? I chose papers from one of my Christmas stacks. I didn't use a sentiment because one of the papers I chose had Merry Christmas on it. I added some gold and iridescent glitter for sparkle and some holly and berries along with a Christmas ornament that I had from The Paper Studio's La Petites collection.

There are a few photos because I wanted to show all views of my creation. I first started with a small box that I had. I added some decorative paper on all sides and top of the box. I found this pretty braided ribbon that went with my papers. My image was found on the Internet and it was free to use. I colored my image with copic markers and cut it out with one of my Nestabilities dies. I used gold fabric paint around my image and added some glitter for sparkle. I used a decorative button on the front of the lid and added four gems to the corners of the lid. After I was done with my creation I decided to fill it with tissue paper and some goodies.

Away In A Manger

Here is a side view to show the shadow box


Hi everyone, I have one more creation for today. This one is for A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge. Their theme is to create a scene. I found this beautiful image on a website called http://karenswhimsey.com/. I used two of the same image and a piece of foam board to raise up one to give it that 3D look. I colored the images with my copics and cut out the holly berry wreath. My paper has notes on it and I thought this was perfect for the song "Away in a Manger". I added a couple of pieces of satin ribbon to two corners and two satin ribbon poinsettias. A sentiment and a little glitter completed my scene.

Candy Cane Wishes




Good morning everyone. I have another card to enter in a challenge. This one is for The Winter Wonderland Challenge. They provided the sketch.

I used a stamp and sentiment from Michelle Perkett and I colored my image using Adobe Fireworks CS4. I cut out my image using a Nestabilities scallop oval die and highlighted the edges with color box chalks. The holly on the bottom of my card was made using a Nestabilities die and I colored it with color box chalks and copic markers.

Autumn Splendor


Ok, I have one more creation for today. This one is for Michelle Perkett's Challenge. Michelle asked us to make a creation using earth tone colors and this is what I came up with. The image is by Michelle called Autumn. Instead of using my copic markers this time I used my Adobe Fireworks CS4 software to color the image. I had a lot of fun with this because if I chose a color and didn't like the way it looked I could change it. I used a copper metallic card stock for my card and a paper from DCWV with glitter. I added a piece of ribbon that had metallic threads going through it and some silk flowers. Michele gave us the sentiment as one of her freebies and I added a small enameled leaf charm. To finish my card I used some burnt orange glitter to edge the paper. So what do you think?

Thanksgiving Pumpkins

There's Magic in the Air Challenge provided the image and their theme is monochromatic and The Pink Elephant Challenge theme is Be Thankful. I am making some Thanksgiving cards for a friend of mine and this one fits the theme perfectly. I used a paisley paper from DCWV for my background. I colored my image from Nina with my copic markers. I used a contrasting tassel ribbon on the bottom of my card and make three paper flowers. A sentiment, some pearls and rhinestones and a little glitter completed my creation.

Snow Cute!




I thought I was done creating for today but changed my mind. I just made a cute card for The Truly Scrumptious Challenge. We were given a sketch to follow and we had to use 3 flowers, 3 brads and 3 gems or pearls. My image was a freebie called Cherry Kisses Snowball by Polycraft. I colored my image with copic markers and added some glitter glue to look like snow. I just bought a Fiskars Circle Border Punch and I used it for the first time here. My flowers are Prima's and my sentiment is from Peachy Kenn Stamps. I added some very tiny aqua pearls under my sentiment and a little glitter glue. So, what do you think of this one?

I had a small stamp of a champagne bottle that I added to my sentiment. A few contrasting pearls and a few bubbles and my creation was complete. What do you think?
