Merry Christmas - The Merry Christmas Challenge #44

Wednesday November 22, 2017
 
We're back... the Holy and Ivy team with another challenge at The Merry Christmas Challenge #44.
Again we are a weekly challenge and every week the same..
 ANYTHING GOES AS LONG AS IT'S CHRISTMAS
Check out the Holy and Ivy creations over at TMCC blog.
 

This is my Christmas card. I really wanted to add some sequins but as I laid them out to see how they would look they just didn't look right. So again this is a simple CAS card. I used an old wood block tree stamp by Denami Designs, and Simon Says sentiment. I used Simon Says gold embossing powder. To give more interest I used my Embossing pen and went around the edges free hand and then added the same embossing powder.  It really looks good. I don't think my lighting is right cause I see a glare on the paper. But it is pretty in person.

Wednesday November 22, 2017
 
Welcome to a new challenge at Sunny Day Crafting #62
The Yellow team is brining you the new theme  -
 "U" is for UP IN THE AIR
 
 
I don't have hot air balloons or airplanes.. but I do have birds and since I am trying to use OLD wood block red rubber stamps and this one is by Stamp graphic.. I chose this bird.. It's up in the air..  I colored this with Copics and added a little Wink of Stella. I then stamped the Tech. Tues. sentiment.  I went around the edges with Ranger inks. Added sequins with a dot of Nuvo drops in the center.
I love using old stamps.   I hope you can get over to Sunny Day Crafting and see the Yellow Teams creations.

It's your birthday - Billie and Monika challenge

Monday November 20, 2017
 
Today is my birthday.. it's another big one.. wow.. I do not feel my age so I guess that is good.
Today Monika at Creative with Monika and I are doing our challenge for each other again.. this was my turn to chose so I said number background, one flower and leaf or leaves and birthday..
So this is my card.
I took black card stock and Paper Trey Ink numbers die and cut numbers I did it about 4 times so I would have a variety of them. Then I laid them out and once I had what I liked I adhered them down.. next time I think I would run through my Xyron.. I don't like the residue from the glue. I then used Birch press flower and leaves and Altnew inks. For some reason the dark green in the leaf is not showing up.. I guess I should of used a darker green. I used a Simon Says sentiment and Nuvo drops.  I am happy with the look.. I can even see my age in there.. LOL.. of course the numbers aren't together but they are there.  Head over to Monika's blog  Creative with Monika and see her card..

 Saturday November 18, 2017
 
It's time for another challenge at Catch the bug..
Today we have a BINGO challenge card.



Here is the BINGO card for you to follow..

 
OH MY I knew I wanted to use this image - Funny Pup 02 so I looked at the BINGO card to see what and how I could use it..
I chose the top.. Sentiment / Bugaboo image / Charm
 
This little dog is so cute.. It doesn't look like my dog but it's so darling. I colored her with copics and added an old old charm I had. I surprised it's not green from tarnish.. it's that old.. I added some pearls to her collar and look at that awesome sentiment.. You who have pets.. I think especially dogs.. This fits. My dogs are always there for me.. ALWAYS and anytime. They love me no matter what and there to comfort me.. (yes hubby does too but you know what I am talking about)
I hope play along and enter your card over at Catch the bug.

This Free Friday image is "Ruby bubble trouble"..  I colored the image with copics and added white gel pen lines for the tile looking floor.

I love you - Aud Sentiments #193

Thursday November 16-27, 2017
 
Welcome to another challenge at
 
Our challenge is 
ANYTHING GOES + SENTIMENT
 
 
This is my card. I took Simon Says flower/leaf stamp and white heat embossed on a white card base. I then took a copic BG10 and colored in the background. I went over the flowers only with Spectrum Noir glitter pen. I die cut YOU from My Favorite Things and then stamped I LOVE from the same set. I layered it on the card. I which you could see this in person. It's so pretty.  I will be doing this again. I like the copic BG blue cause it's not solid so you can see a little of the white coming through. I didn't want to go over and over cause I didn't want a strong BG color just a light tint. Cant wait to see what you all create.
