Happy New Year & Twisted Thursday

Sadly, my time as a Guest Designer at Shirley's 2 Girls has come to an end. The images there are so fun to work with. I want to thank Georgia and the rest of the DT.

My last project is using some of the cute images for New Year's in the January Set. I chose to make another wine bottle tag since we have a party to go to and I'll guessed it... a bottle of wine. I found a cute champagne bottle card template (from Mirkwood Designs) and cut it in half.

The theme is New Beginnings this week and we hope you will join us over at the Challenge Blog.
Hope you all have a wonder New Year's.

Snowflakes and Stockings Continued...

Here's where the stockings come in...

This second card uses one of Elisabeth Bell's images from Whiff of Joy Stamps. The image is from the 2009 Winter Kit. I am also entering this in the monthly challenge over at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog.

The image was colored with Copics and then distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink. I stamped some swirls with holly using a stamp from the dollar bin at Michael's. The candy cane stamp is from the Christmas Words stamp set from Inkadinkado. I used Fired Brick distress ink on craft paper and distressed the edges of everything with Vintage Photo. The scallop square is from a Spellbinders die and the snowflakes were made using a Martha Stewart punch and Fired Brick distress ink and Stickles.

Here's the inside of the card.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Snowflakes and Stockings

Two more cards to share today. Still Christmas cards. The monthly challenge over at the Elisabeth Bell's World challenge blog is a winter theme. I just love her images and the biggest problem is chosing which one to use.

This first card uses the Letters to Santa image from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection found here.

It's colored with Copics and I added some stickles glitter for the snow and the trim on her hat and coat. The snowflake is a Quickutz die and the scalloped circles was made with a spellbinders die. I used Vintage Photo and Antique Linen distress inks to add a vintage feel to the card.

To be continued...

Christmas a little late

I have a couple postings today. I know Christmas is past but I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Unfortunately now that I'm working two jobs, my crafting time has been almost non-existent. I did manage to take two days off before the holiday and get some cards done. Nothing too exciting. I kept them pretty basic.

The first uses this adorable Elisabeth Bell image from Belles-n-Whistles. The circle sentiment is from Cats Life Press.

This one I used a Sarah Kay image. This is probably my favorite Sarah Kay image.

Thzese are gift card holders I made for our friends kids. The template is a freebie over at the Waltzing Mouse. The circle sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by.

Twisted Thursday and Dog Treats

Hello. It's Thursday already and time for another challenge at Shirley's 2 Girls. The theme this week is anything. I made a treat bag topper and filled it with dog treats for my neighbor's dogs. I used the image Joyful Noise and colored it with Copics. I used a spellbinder die for the circles and the tag shape. A Martha Stewart punch for the snowflakes. I used forest moss distress ink and then added some stickles to the snowflakes.
Sorry for the poor pictures. I think my digital camera is ready to retire. Maybe Santa will bring me a new one. Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you all have wonderful Holiday!!!

It's Twisted Thursday at S2G

It's time for another Twisted Thursday over at Shirley's 2 Girls. The challenge this week is to use flocking on your card or project. I chose to use a white glitter flocking on my snowflake attached to the bow and on the green snowflake border on the bottom of my tag. This adorable image is called "Won't Go". Be sure to stop over at the blog and see what the wonderful DT has created this week.

I have two cards to share with you today. I was asked to be a guest designer this month over at Shirley's 2 Girls and I couldn't be more excited. The first card is for this week's challenge where the theme is Buttons & Ribbon. I used the Coffee & Muffin image and tried to give it a holiday feel.

The second card is a wedding card I made using the Happy Couple image from Shirley's 2 Girls. I just love this image!
