Merry Christmas !!

Good Morning! Brrr it is cold this morning - 28 degrees. I was browsing through SCS and saw this treat card box and decided to try making one. I used "Flower Cheer" from the Elisabeth Bell Mini Winter Sampler. Actually, the "Bells of Joy" is a bonus stamp from the Victoria Case for SCACD Mini Winter Hearts and Hugs Set.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The transparency was reflecting on my camera lens so I was having a hard time getting good pics. Isn't this paper gorgeous? It is the Basic Grey Jovial which is on sale right now. The beautiful White Velvet Poinsettias by Petaloo really set off the treat box these are also on sale.. Inside the treat box is Godiva Chocolate. My daughter is a chocoholic. The image is colored with Copics and I added a little Stickles on her shirt and the bells.

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It seems like forever since I last posted. I apologize, I have had the flu and it really got me down. Anyway, I decided to do a little project. The image is from Victoria Case for SCACD - Mini Winter and Hugs. This set is just too cute! "I Heart Powder" is a perfect name for this stamp.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Not another card
ABC Challenge - I is for Ice and Snow
Crafts and Me - Snowflakes
Crafty Creations - Christmas is Coming
For Fun Challenge - Anything Goes
Papercutz Challenge - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend - Winter Theme
Just Us Girls - 3-D Challenge
One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas Cuties

I colored the image with Copics added some Flower Soft Diamond Range - Silver around her hat, coat and boots. For the snow I used Flower Soft Diamond Range - Polar White with a little Doodlebug Glitter Sugar - Lily White for just a little extra glisten. The skis look all waxed and ready to go thanks to a little Diamond Glaze .I will be going to see my grandchildren next month in Colorado and this little tin with this image is perfect for Ski Lift Tickets and small enough for me to carry on the plane. Remember you can click on the picture and enlarge it to see the products up close.

This tin was so much fun and messy to do. I used the Viva Decor Precious Metal Paint - Silver
to paint it - one coat does it. The sides looked kinda plain to me so in my stuff I had some Maya Road Chipboard - Snowflakes and used the Viva Decor Precious Metal Paint in Olive and Crimson.
Here is another angle. The snow looks like it has powder and glistens - the slopes are calling my name.

Please check out the store blog here and see all the beautiful cards and projects the Design Team has been doing while I have been sick. They are totally awesome.

Thank you for stopping by and HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING !!

Good Morning,

It is a cool frosty morning here in Texas. This image is a reminder winter and Christmas is just around the corner. She is "First Signs of Fall" from the Reflections Set #1 - Carmen Medlin for SCACD. This set has so many versatile stamps you will definitely want it.

The challenge this week was to make a Christmas Card not using the traditional colors of red, green, gold, or silver. The image is colored with Copics and accented with Stickles. For the snow I used Polar White Flower Soft mixed with some Doodlebug Glitter Sugar. I also used the mixture on the snowflakes.

This picture captures some of the glitz. The swirls and the sentiment stamps also have just a little Stickles - enough to make them sparkle. The DP is from my stash.
Susana has some more new products in stock. She now has new Kaisercraft and My Minds Eye , as well, as BasicGrey Jovial paper. There are new arrivals every day so check the store often.

Now, go over the store blog here and check out the other DT projects.

Thank you stopping by. I appreciate all my followers and comments.
