Snow Kisses

Morning Peeps.  It's challenge time at the 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.  Our wonderful sponsor for this month is Scribbles Designs.  I chose to use this cute Snow Kisses image for my card.

The snow may be melting, but there are still signs of winter. Soon Spring will be upon us. Let's capture winter this month by including a little snow on our cards. So for a chance to win extra prizes, Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow all over your cards!

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that snow is represented in some form or manner on your card.  If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn this month's free digital paper, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $10.00 gift certificate from our sponsor for this month, Scribbles Designs.

Here is my card for the March challenge at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.  I chose to use Snow Kisses for my image.  As usual, I printed and cut the image and shadow layer using my Cameo.

DS4J #110 - Embossing

Time for another challenge at DigiStamps4Joy.  I am hosting the challenge this month.  My theme is "Embossing, wet or dry with red as the main color."  I chose to use Margy's Rag Doll image.  You can find the image in the store here.

I used a Die'sire embossing folder called "Floral Frenzy" and rubbed Festive Berries distress ink on it and then embossed the white die cut which I had cut with the Cameo.  I also used the print and cut feature on the Cameo to cut the image.  I also used a Sizzix embossing folder for the red die cut (also cut on my Cameo).  I colored the image with Copic markers and popped it with foam tape.  The flower was in my stash and I have no idea who makes it.  I added some Want2Scrap pearl bling to the flower centers.

Puppy Present

Morning Peeps.  I can't believe how fast this year is sailing by.  It is almost the end of February.  The sketch challenge over at the Outlaws this week is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.   I chose to use this adorable puppy image. 

I used Recollections dp from a 8 1/2 x 11 paper pad called Bold Basics.  The black cardstock is also Recollections.  The other cardstock is from American Crafts Tropicals collection.  I colored the image with Copics.  The puppy prints are from a swap that I did about 10 years ago and have been in my collection ever since.  I think they are die cuts from an old small yellow Sizzix die.

Morning Peeps!  It's Tuesday so that means that there is a new challenge up over at Tuesday Throwdown.  It's an easy one this week - Anything Goes.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Oak Pond.  I used Laundry Day for my image.  You can find it in the shop here.  The image reminded me of something a little boy might do for fun on laundry day.  So, I decided to make it a card for a boy.  I used burlap, buttons and twine instead of ribbon and bling.    I colored him with copics.  The card base is from American Crafts.

Missing You

I had some of this patterned paper left over from another card I made so I decided to use it on another card.  I had also printed and colored two of the images, so here is another card with the same paper and images.  I added the missing you sentiment and will put this card in my box to go to OWH.

The Outlawz 2/18

One more challenge at Wednesday sketch challenge at The Outlawz. We continue with this month's sponsor - The Stamping Boutique. I chose to use "Love Birds" as my image.  I took a little liberty with the sketch and only did an offset for my image instead of another die cut.

One Layer Card

Morning Peeps.  I'm posting this a little early because I have two back to back doctor appointments in the morning and a luncheon at 1.  No time for computer in the morning.  The challenge at The Crafter's CafĂ© this month is sponsored by Rick St. Dennis.  The theme is "One Layer - Use Red."  This was probably the most difficult card I have had to do in a long time. One layer cards are not my forte.  I don't really consider it one layer because I used the die layer and then added the image, but it is as close as I can come to one layer.  The image is called "Cindy" and was printed and cut with my Cameo.  I colored her with Copic markers.  The die I used for the red die cut is from Our Daily Bread Designs.
