Paper Ala Mode Challenge


This is my project that I made for the Outlawz Challenge for Saturday Dec 23rd - Fun or Fancy Folds.

My image is a Dustin Pike digi.  Colored with Copics (I forgot to take a picture of the colors I used.  I was tired last night after I colored him.  I again used some of my scraps of the embossed lettuce container and they seemed to make my paper warp.....ugh.....I propped the snowman up on a spring but you can not really tell by my photo so he jiggles around...really cute.

Bah Humbug Outlawz Challenge

I am just getting this in under the wire for the Outlawz Friday Challenge that ends tonight.  The theme for this challenge is "Bah Humbug.  I used dp's from my stash from last year, Holly Jolly by My Mind's Eye.   The stamp is a digi from Bug a Boo and is called Crabby Cathy.  I think she fits the Bah Humbug perfectly.  I colored her with Copics, and used Stickles and Gesso for the fur trim.   Okay enough of this I need to get her posted before they close the challenge.  I think I am done with cards for today too.  I am tired!

Relaxing After Christmas

It is a very quiet day at home today and I am making cards again.  I made this card for the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge Dec 27th and the theme is "Relaxing After Christmas".  How much more relaxing can a hot bath be?  The dp's I used are from Quick Quotes and is called Penny Pincher.  The image is a Bella stamp I have had for several years and have not used it.  I used Copics to color with and Glossy Accents for the bubbles in the water.

This is my card entry into the Magnalicious Challenge Blog "Pink Christmas".    The stamp is the free Tilda Stamp I got with the Christmas Edition Ink magazine.  She is adorable but I do not know what her name is as she did not come with a name.  I colored her with Copics and Stickles.  The gift boxes and sayings  are a CTMH stamps and I used Spellbinder die cuts.    I also embossed, with snowflakes,  a piece of clear plastic I cut from a box my lettuce comes in.  I like the effect.
