Christmas Gift Box

Hi Everyone, Well it's another challenge at Holly Jolly this week and we want to see your packaging this week in the way of boxes. It can be any kind of box for any kind of gift. I've decided to do a gift box of cards, The picture is only showing two of the cards but I did make six to go inside along with the envelopes. I thought it would be a great idea for a hostess of a Christmas Party. Anyway hop on over to Holly Jolly to see the other designers boxes, some great ideas. Thanks for looking.

Golden Snowflakes

Hi Everyone, Well over at Come and Get It Challenges this week is Anything but a Card. I've always found this challenging as mainly I do make cards, but I do manage somehow to come up with an idea. I've made a candle once before but didn't like the way it turned out, but to persevere is always been my motto. So here is the latest attempt, and I must say that I love the way it turned out. I used the stamping on tissue paper method to make the candle. I stamped on tissue paper with Versamark ink all the snowflakes, then I embossed them with gold embossing powder. I then melted it onto the candle slowly with my heat tool. I made the tag using the decorative label punch and embossed gold snowflakes on it, stamped the To and From from the Winter Post set, then added the Merry Christmas Greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
Thanks for looking. Now go over there and check out the other team members designs. They have made some really interesting things for you to see.

Sketch Time at Come and Get It

Hi Everyone, Over at Come and Get It this week we have a sketch for you, made by me. My idea behind this sketch was a way to use up some of the small embellishments you might have as well as some scrap designer papers. Anyway I decided to make a Christmas card with the sketch this time around,using up some paper from last year, the Frostwood Lodge and Jolly Jingles paper. along with the embellishment is the retired felt holly. Anyway thanks for looking and have a great day.

Angelic Joy

Angels are the theme at Holly Jolly this week, selected by Judy. I pulled out my Angelic Joy set that came out a couple of years ago I think and I just love this lady. I've colored her with the New Raspberry Ripple. The paper is from this year as well it is the Be of Good Cheer set, lovely paper. The buttons are a die cut and added some white baker's twine. The ribbon is dyed to be the night of Navy to match the blue card stock she is on. I cut her out and mounted her on that, so she's more dimensional. Also you can't see in the picture but I did use a glitter pen on the wings and a bit on the folds of the dress, gives it a nice sparkle without being over powering.

Birthday Celebrations

Hi Everyone, Well over at Come and Get It this week, we have a Color Challenge for you, Some bright and sunny colors. We are also sponsored this week and so for my one card I used the sponsors image, and colored her dress in Calypso Coral, her Apron and Hair using Daffodil Delight and the icing on the yummy cake was done in Pool Party. I cut them out using the framelits dies, then I colored some flowers from my stash using re-inkers and water, then put them onto a piece of the paper from last years Domestic Goddess Paper, then put it onto Calypso Coral, Added a few extra pearls and I was done. For my other card, I used the Mixed Bunch Set, The edglet die, along with the three colors, and made the beautiful flowers. The paper is from the Sale-A-Bration  Everyday Enchantment Paper. Then a button in daffodil Delight was added to the center flower, and the greeting from Curly Cute was added and the card is done.

The Colors used are Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, and Lucky Limeade, The bugs were stamped twice on vellum then cut out, and the top wings were then glittered using two way glue and dazzling diamonds. Then mounted on the card with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped then cut out using our new bitty banner dies.
