Naughty or Nice?


I just LOVE the new Christmas images from Kenny K! I couldn't resist this sexy minx.

I kept the card pretty simple because I wanted her to be the main focal point. I colored her with Copics and the sentiment is computer generated. The white fur on her outfit is covered with polar white Flower Soft. The DP is from an unknown Christmas collection.

Thanks for visiting!

Think Pink!


If you didn't already know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so the challenge on the StampInsanity blog is Think Pink! For my DT card I used this fabulous image and sentiment from the Katie set from SI. You can purchase the set HERE. We've had some amazing entries for the challenges so we hope you'll join us! It doesn't have to be a card for someone with cancer, it just has to have pink on it. How easy is that?!

I colored my image with Copics and added a healthy amount of Martha Stewart glitter to the ribbon. The DP and the pink CS are both from Papertrey Ink. The organza ribbon is from Joanne's (thanks Mom!) and the pin I won in a contest. I finished it off by adding Diamond Glaze to her sunglasses.

For this term the DT has been split into two wards and we alternate challenges. I'm on team 2 so please check out all the other beautiful creations from the designers on team 2. You can find their links on my sidebar.

Caroling

This card features one of my all-time favorite Christmas stamps. It is from Motivet and I just love everything about it.

I colored the image with Copics. I found the sheet music for "Deck the Halls" online and I printed it out and shrunk it down so that it would fit on the card. I inked the edges and crinkled it up before affixing it to my base. I'm not sure who makes the DP but I thought it was perfect because it has the names of Christmas songs on it. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I colored them with Copics too.

I cut out their hands holding the music and popped them up on foam dots.

And here's the inside of the card. Again, I used a sentiment that is the name of a song just to carry the theme all the way through.

Thanks for visiting!

New Release at StampInsanity!

First of all I'm super psyched to say that I made the DT at StampInsanity - whoot! Second of all it's Thursday again which means it's time for a new challenge over at StampInsanity! The challenge this week is to trick it or treat it (kind of like naughty or nice). Make a card or other project that involves a favorite technique or a Halloween theme. So get crafty and link your project HERE. AND third of all, we're showing off NEW IMAGES that are available in the StampInsanity store HERE. The new release is called Devil Dolls:





Aren't they all yummy?! I got to play with Hilda for the challenge this week and this is what I came up with:
I really don't think these images are limited to Halloween but I decided to use a Halloween theme on my card. After seeing the picture of the card, however, I was disappointed. Don't you hate it when the picture of your card doesn't really look like the card does in real life? The inside of her cape and her hair is actually a pretty purple color but in the photo it looks more blue. And I spent a lot of time shading her and it doesn't really show up in the picture either. Grrr! Oh well, it is what it is I guess. I had a really fun time coloring her though!


I kept the design pretty simple because I really wanted Hilda to shine because she's so groovy! I colored her with Copics and you can't tell from the picture but I put purple gems on her arm bands for some added bling. The ribbon I won from Fantastic Ribbons and I tied the bow using the Bow Easy that I got HERE.

To see more of the images from the new release check out the other members of the DT listed on my sidebar. We've been broken into two teams but for this new release we're all creating projects this week.
