Three's Company Challenge

Hi all, there is a new challenge at the DRS designs blog. The challenge this week is Three's Company, use three of something. Simple so come and join in the fun.

The inspiration for my card came from my Christmas Tree every year the grand children have there pitcher made with Santa, and I put them on my tree in the little frames, these are some of my favorites to put up each year to see how the kids have changed.

For my card I used the Wintertime Buddies stamp. I stamped it three times and used a square punch to just punch out the Santa face. Then I punched out black squares to layer behind. I used the Open Plaid background stamp on red and green paper for the plaid background layers. I stamped the Christmas Multi Greeting in red on the center strip. Then I stamped the Design Tag Die Cut onto white with black ink and use the Stamp -A - Ma - Jig, to stamp the greeting from the Multi Greeting stamp added some ribbon and a little bling and I was done.

Well I think I covered the Three with this card. Three /Santa's, Three Backgrounds,Three Squares, Three Rectangles. Please join in this fun challenge.

Have a wonderful day,

Camo Coupon

Hi all, I have something different for you today. It's a card topper, I need it for my grandson's stocking. He has been wanting his Puppa  to take him target shooting for sometime, this is just a little something to let him know that Puppa has not forgotten.

On the front I stamped the Squirrel with Acorn and colored it with Copics. Then I stamped the Silhouette Background Tree behind it, using the masking technique.

On the other side I stamped part of the Star Coupon. Then I wanted a camo look around the outside edge so I used part of Silhouette Background Tree stamp and Brilliance ink in Coffee Been and Ivy and stamp around the edge. And added a little border with a Copic marker in E57.

I didn't spend much time on this. But I'm happy with the way it turned out and I think my grandson will like it as well. 

I hope all of you are have a wonderful time getting ready for the holiday.

Have a wonderful day,

Let it Snow

Hi everyone, I got my tree up on Saturday I was begin to think it was not going to happen this year. This working crazy hours sure put a cramp in my crafting and fun stuff that I like to do. But life is full of changes.

Today I have a cute Christmas / winter card. I used the Let it Snow Penguins. It was stamped with black ink and the little Penguins were colored with copic markers. I used a die to cut out the image. Then I used Liquid Pearls to outline the word snow. I didn't get as good of coverage as would have liked. It just goes to show you that everything does not turn out perfect,  this technique needs some work. I used liquid glue on the edges and added some White Flower soft to the edges. The background is a embossing folder. I punched the snowflakes and added some glitter glue and used pop dots to attach.

Don't for get to join in the Glitter it up challenge.

Have a wonderful day,
