Season's Feetings -- for Bugaboo Stamps

Season's Feetings, I mean greetings, everyone!  Today is new release day at Bugaboo Stamps.  Every Tuesday, it's time for a new release!  Today's new release is Seasons Greetings Feet.  This is actually a re-release, so if you don't have it yet, you can pick it up for 1/2 price!

Here's Seasons Greetings Feet:



I colored Seasons Greeting Feet with Copic markers, then went to work finding the perfect background for all those Christmas feet!

I cut out this card on my Silhouette Cameo 3.  It is large enough to fit in a business size envelope.  The Santa hat paper is from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez.  It is one of the Bright Christmas papers.  I found that corrugated silver foil paper in my stash.  I have no idea where I got it from or who makes it.  The red snowflake is a cutting die by Cheery Lynn. 

Check out the Catch the Bug Blog to see what other Bugaboo designers did with this delightful Seasons Greetings Feet image. Check back each day to see the wonderful inspiration.  There's always lots happening at Catch the Bug!

I used the New Release, Christmas Unicorn, to create this:




I colored Christmas Unicorn with Copic markers, giving him a rainbow, magical (hopefully) look.  

I found those fun papers at AMB Illustrations.  I thought they were perfect with the rainbows, unicorns, and stars.  The sentiment was computer generated.  The glitter stars are from Close To My Heart.

Altered Christmas Canister

Christmas greeting, fellow crafters.  I'm posting on the Dies R Us blog today. If you're like me, I know you're busy with holiday EVERYTHING!  For some of the really special people on my list, I like to not only give them a special gift, but also an original gift package.  While I think gift bags are the greatest thing since toast, sometimes that special gift calls for something a bit more, well, unique!  Like this, perhaps....



This is a Kraft container that I've had in my stash of alterable goodies forever, and I pulled it out to decorate for a special friend.

Here's a picture of the supplies I used.  I'll list and link them at the end:

I covered the container with a Christmas paper, keeping the pattern simple and small so it wouldn't overwhelm the die cuts.

Next, I got busy cutting out all those pretty Christmas die cuts:

After that was done, it was just a matter of using some of the Best Glue Ever to attach the die cuts to the container.

The tree was so lacy and delicate that it got lost in the paper, so I backed it with a label die:
In case you're wondering what gift is going in the can, one of my best friend loves socks.  I have a couple of very fun pairs of socks to fit inside.  Perfect!

Dies R Us products used on this project:





Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Be a Unicorn -- for Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Can it be?!?  I've got something beside a Christmas card on my blog today!  Hurray!  Perhaps there's a light at the end of the tunnel!

I have an adorable image from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez today.  I've been wanting to color this one up for quite some time now -- ever since I first saw it, actually!



This image is one of 3 unicorns in the Unicorn Stamp Set found in the Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez Store.   I wanted my unicorn to stand out in that field of horses, so I colored him with lots of bright colors using Copic markers, then fussy cut him out.

The sentiment is computer generated.

The paper, foil tape, card stock,  and gems are all from Close To My Heart. 

After you've checked out the Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez Shop, there's her blog with great inspiration, and fantastic examples of her colored images, and the Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez Facebook group, too, including a monthly challenge! Come join the fun!

Follow Your Heart -- for the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog

It's the first Monday of the month, so it's time for a new challenge at the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog.  We've had optional color themes all year long, and we're winding it up this month with Metallics, Foils, and Glitters.  Our sponsor for both the start and mid-challenge is Sparkle 'N Sprinkle

I do a lot of coloring, so it's fun to feature a sentiment occasionally. That's what I did on today's card.  This uses the Sentiment set, Happiness Greetings.  I used one of the sentiments in the set to create this:



I have a new hot foil machine by Crafter's Companion, and I used it, along with a hot foil stamp, to create the background of this card.  I used silver foil paper behind the sentiment, then some pink glitter paper to cut out the heart.  I figured that would do well for our "Metallics, Foil, and Glitter" optional themed challenge.

I hope you find time to join us during this busy month of December.  When you have that glitter and foil out, link it up at The Path of Positivity Challenge Blog

Snowman & Bird -- for Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Blog

December 3 -- this is the day we start a new challenge on the Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Blog.  The theme for this month's challenge is "Happy Holidays".

I love the charming images that Naz has in her Sasayaki Glitter Etsy Store, and this Snowman & Bird is just delightful to color up!




I colored Snowman & Bird with Copic markers.

I used papers from We Are 3 Digital Shop on this card.  The circle is from the Kerst Christmas Collection. The strip of teal paper is from the Touch of Teal collection. 

The stitched snowflakes are dies from Lawn Fawn, cut out with glitter paper. The glimmer trim and card stock base are from Close To My Heart.

I hope you are able to join us this month at Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Blog as you finish up your Christmas cards.  The theme is "Happy Holidays".  

I'd like to enter this in the following challenge:

Today's fun challenge is "Bring on the White Elephant Gifts" -- create gift packaging -- a tag, a gift card holder, a gift, anything that fits the theme.

I used this adorable Polar Bear (only $1.00!) to create a gift tag:  



I colored the Polar Bear with Copic markers, then fussy cut it.  

I used tag dies from Close To My Heart to construct the Christmas gift tag.  Papers for the tag are from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez.  They are from the Blue Christmas papers.  The white fibers are from Close To My Heart. 

So, bring on the white elephant gifts! Join the challenge!

With Love -- for SheepSki Designs

December 1 -- the start of a very busy month!  It's also the start of a new challenge on the SheepSki Designs Challenge Blog. The theme this month is: Celebrations.

Since my husband and I celebrate our anniversary in December (35 years -- I am having trouble getting my head around that number!), I took advantage of one of Andrea Norris' beautiful floral images to make my husband an anniversary card for this challenge.

I colored Freesia Vase with Copic markers.  The sentiment is computer generated.

The houndstooth background paper is a new release from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It is one of the papers in the new Houndstooth Neutral Collection. 

I made the card base and layers with a set of Spellbinders dies.  The various heart dies are from my stash, and I no longer know the manufacturers. The green glimmer trim and yellow card base are from Close To My Heart. 

I hope you find time to join us this busy month of December for the Celebrations challenge at SheepSki Designs challenge blog.  I'd love to see what you make, and there are great prizes you can win -- like this wonderful Freesia Vase digi!

It's Tuesday, so that's new release day at Bugaboo Stamps.  Today's new release is Sunbonnet Winter 2, and she's a sweetie!



I colored Sunbonnet Winter 2 with Copic markers.  I spent all Friday afternoon filling markers, and one of them must have been overfilled because it blopped on here.  Can you see where, or did I disguise my error?  

I used the sketch from this week at Sketch Saturday.  Here's the sketch: 

The designer paper on the front of this card   (pink hearts and pattern) is from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It's one of November's new releases, Touch of Teal

I live in Wisconsin, the Dairy State, so I'm drawn to cows.  Today's free digi, Cow Pile, is a great one for me.  I can think of lots of farmer friends to send this one to!



I colored Cow Pile with Copic markers, working to shade each cow, distinguishing between the different cows in the pile.  I had a bit of a puzzle sorting out hooves, heads, utters, bodies, but I think I got it!

Papers on this card are from We Are 3 Digital Shop. These are from the November New Release.  They are the Howdy Paper Collection.

I used several sizes of a Spellbinders label die and a bit of ribbon from my stash on this card.

Snowman & Owl -- for Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Here we are, the day before Thanksgiving (in the USA).  It's a busy day for me, playing piano at the nursing home, playing organ for a Thanksgiving service at church, and making some Thanksgiving foods to take to my mother-in-laws for the feast tomorrow, but there's always time for Warm Hugs!

I colored Snowman & Owl with Copic markers. Papers on this card are also by Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez.  They are the Blue Christmas digital papers

Twinkle -- for Path of Positivity Challenge Blog

Here we are, edging ever closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas.  It's the 3rd Monday of November already, and it's time for some mid-challenge inspiration at The Path of Positivity Challenge Blog.   We've had optional color themes all year, and this months optional theme is 'green'.  It's easy to use the color green on Christmas cards, and I'm trying to get them all made in the next couple weeks.  Here's another one done!



This uses an adorable digi from this month's sponsor, Scribbles Designs.  It's called Brrrnard's Tree.  Adorable, isn't he?

I colored Brrrnard's Tree with Comic markers.  Papers on this card are from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.  I concentrated on using plenty of green on my card -- green card base, big green tree, green panel behind the image, and the green designer paper. 

I hope you can link up your green creations at The Path of Positivity this month.  I'd love to see what you create, and we've got great prizes you can win.

Happy Thanksgiving Table Setting for Dies R Us

I'm posting today on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog, and I've been working on a way to dress up the Thanksgiving table a bit. 



I created these with several products in the Dies R Us store.  I'll show pictures and links at the end of this post for your convenience.

Here's all the supplies:

I created the pocket for the silverware and napkin by using an 11 1/2 x 4 inch piece of card stock.  I scored it at 4.5 inches, and glued to that score line.  

I used 2 of the middle sized frames (ones that I thought fit on the front of the silverware holder the best) on this project.  

I computer generated my sentiment.  Here's how it looked when I cut one out with the label:

I'll end with a close up of one of the place setting holders:

Here's the list of supplies, as promised:



I greatly enjoyed creating these and would like to enter them in the following challenges:
