Snowy Background Technique

This was much more difficult than I thought it would be. Not sure if it was the cardstock or the ink that I used. I could not get the water to make my snow like I would have liked. I used SU glossy cardstock and SU inks. I added a bit of stickles to the tree and decked up Rudolf's nose with a punched out red cardstock with a bit of dimensionals to make it shiny and 3D. To check out the challenge go to Joan's garden or to Selma's blog It was fun but it was a bit of a challenge!!

CASual Fridays sketch challenge

Another card for the CAS-ual Fridays sketch challenge. I love how this one turned out :) I used PPTink Tree Trimming Trio and SU Border builders (old retired set). I mounted one on green and one on pink bc I couldn't decide. I like them both. I went over the stars with my clear Gelly Roll pen to give them a bit of sparkle although it doesn't show up much on the photo.

Brayer Techniques

Here's my Papertrey's Make It Monday and CAS-ual Friday challenge card with the brayer technique. I used the PTI Sunshine Impression plate with PTI Fillable Frames. Little gift (random stamp). I brayered with an very old SU combo stamp pad. I punched holes in the centers of the circles. I'm not all that impressed with my finished project but I was too far into it to chuck it. So needless to say here it is.

Lights, Red and White Christmas

Here's my second post today! This one is for the challenge over at Joan's Garden using: a die, Christmas scentiment, lights (in my snowflake, tree top and star) and red and white. Hope I win:) I used SU Season of Joy stamps and lots of stickles for my lights. I layered the tree, snowflake and star.

Casual Fridays Color Medium

I made a sympathy card for my challenge card for CAS-ual FRidays I used water color pencils and a blender pen for my choice of color medium to color in the flowers. SU Wonderful you stamp set and computer generated scentiment.

I decided to do a second project for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge No orange (not even in the treats) I used SU paper the cat is decked up with a pink nose and ears then some cute eyes again. Happy Halloween sentiment is a SU stamp, stamped with rich razzleberry. The sign is handcut. Grass is embossed black to give it a bit of glistening in the green moon with SU old olive grassy shadows. Bats SU and moon is celery green. FUN!

CAS Halloween without Orange

It was fun to put a Halloween card together without  orange and still make it look like Halloween. Here's my take on the CAS-ual Fridays challenge. I cut out a ghost shape and gave her some wonky eyes and a bit of boa hair. Letters were cut with Cuttlebug "Your not the Boss of me" letters. I did a bit of stripe coloring on the white letter. I cut strips of green and black to mount on the purple to give a stripe effect. That's it! I hope you like it! I think she's kinda cute.

A CAS card

This is my Clean and Simple card for the project challenge over at Casual Fridays

Treat bag

I was hesitant about this project. Wasn't sure if I wanted to try it but it was good and a bit of a stretch. Joan and Selma always get the creativity going!! So here is my "Fall Halloween Bag" with leaves, pumpkins, letters and a topper. To see more about this challenge go to Joan's gardens

Winter Post

Hi Everybody, we are having an absolutely hot October here in Canada. The temps are in the high 70's to 80's. It's dry and too warm for my liking but it's better than snow. Today I am posting a card for over at Joan's Garden Challenge and over at Simon Says stamp Sparkle and Bling challenge. I used the SU Winter post for the first time. I used PTI paper. My bling is in the trees and in the center of the snowflakes. When I think of sparkle I think of snow. I love making all things Christmas!!
