Winter Wreath

Hello all. It has been a very long week for me, I've had a cold and there are so many things to do.

Today is the last day to enter this weeks challenge over at Peachy Keen, so I have just enough time to enter.

This weeks challenge is 3D Objects : Wall Art.

So here is my entry for Challenge #41.

I used a wreath, Noel and some glass snowflake ornaments that I purchased at Michaels last year but never got around to making anything with.

I used my Spellbinders Circle die to make 4 snowman heads then used my Peachy Keen Winter Faces Assortment for their cute little faces. I colored them in my Copics and attached seam binding to make little scarfs and some pompoms for earmuffs.

 I cut 1 1/4" x 12" strips of Christmas paper and made rosettes then attached the snowmen to them and then the wreath.

Quick easy and cheap to make. Try making one of your own.

It's another challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps Blog.

PKC Challenge 40 :: Just Cards :: Word Up

Here's what ya gotta do to play along with their challenge:
Create a card where the focus of the creation is the sentiment. You can accomplish this with clean and simple designs or let your creativity go wild with patterns and color as long as the sentiment shines through as the main focus.

So... here is the card that I made for PKC 40:

I made an easel card (love making these) and used some pattern paper that I had in my stash.

The sentiment comes from Stampendous and is  embossed with Martha Stewart Cerulean Blue embossing powder.

The snowflakes are from a EK Success Snowflake Edger Punch and I attached them using Glossy Accents.

The inside sentiment is from Pink By Design's My Favorite Kind stamp set.

Thanks for stopping! Make sure to head on over to The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog to see all the great entries and then again on Friday for the new challenge.

Candy Candy Candy!!!

It's challenge time over at Peachy Keen Stamps Blog - Challenge #39 - Color Inspiration.

This is the card that I made for it.

I used Peachy Keen's Frankly stamp set for Frankie, the candy pieces and the main sentiment, then I colored and cut out the pieces. I used the "got candy?" sentiment from the Pink By Design's Guess Who stamp set and stamped it on Frankie's shirt.

I embossed the Recollections Haunted House stamp in Black then cut it out using my Spellbinders Circle die and colored in certain areas with a gray Copic.

Memento Grape Jelly and Sea Brights Citrus make up the inside sentiment. The chocolate bars also come from the Frankly stamp set.

The candy corn and pieces of candy come from Pink By Design's Cute Halloween stamp set. You can't tell but I used Staedtler Maxium Metallic Gel pens to color in the candy.

I will also be entering this into Paper Playtime's Challenge #86 - Welcome to BOO-ville!

Oscar the Grouch Dreaming.

I pulled out my Sesame Street cartridge the other day and decided to make Oscar the Grouch.

I used 2 shadow layers to make the base of the card, I love to make shaped cards I think they just look so cute!

I just love how he turned out all fuzzy! 
I decided to cut out Oscar's body with some Be Creative Tape and my expression and adhered it to the pieces of cardstock that I had already cut out.  Martha Stewart Flocking Powder in Fennel and Orange Poppy to give Oscar his fur and some googly eyes.

The sentiment is from Pink By Design's Christmas Wishes and a Dollar store stamp for the snowflakes on the bag.

The inside sentiment is from Recollections Nutcracker stamped in SU Ballet Blue.

I will be linking this to Sarah Hamer's Link Up Tuesday. Head on over!

Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Turkey Day everyone! It's Thanksgiving here in Canada, so turkey, stuffing and all the fixings were had by many.

I just had a great Thanksgiving weekend with my Mother and wanted to wish all my friends, family and fellow bloggers a HAPPY THANKSGIVING so I made this card.

I used the Create A Critter cartridge and cut this turkey at 4 1/2", along with all the layers and shadows to make the base of the card then added some googly eyes just for fun.

The inside sentiment comes from Pink By Design's Simply Everything stamp set. This really is a great assortment of sentiments... definitely a must have.

Happy Haunting! PKS Blog Challenge #37

There's a fun Sketch challenge going on over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog.

Create a card or layout using the provided sketch! They will be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week and the runner ups will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog!

So here is my card for Challenge #37 - A Sketch.

I started by embossing the purple cardstock with the Cuttlebug and the Haunted Damask folder, then used some Ornate Green Gate paper in the Spooky and Kooky pack by Bazzill.

Using the Spellbinders Standard Circles Dies I cut several circles in different colors.

I used the Recollections Haunted House stamp set, Martha Stewart's Elegant Witch stamp set for the bats and the Peachy Keen Happy Haunting Ghosts stamp set for the ghost and the sentiment, which are all embossed in black.

I used the Peachy Keen Happy Haunting Ghosts stamp set for the inside of the card as well.

Here I layered all the circles together and embossed BOO! onto the smallest circle. I stamped, embossed and cut out another cute little ghost from the set and added him to the inside.

I just love these little ghosts, they are so cute! I actually won the stamp set over on the Peachy Keen Connection a few weeks back  and was so excited to get them in the mail and use them.

Head on over to both the PK Connection and the PKS Challenge Blog and check out all the fun and amazing stuff going on.
