Latte girl - Inspiration Destination #115

Wednesday December 7, 2016
 
it's ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES
 

                     Our sponsor for this card is Fresh Brewed Designs


This is my card using the image called Lily latte girl.. I had a large tag from a scrapbook project that wasn't used and so I cut it down and added some Ranger ink over the tag then stamped Verve cup images over the tag. I added some Quick Quote chalk ink the main card. I colored the cute image with copics. I love browns and teal colors. I tried to do darker hair and think it came out pretty good.  I hope you find time to play along over at Inspiration Destination. I love seeing your cards and remember it's always ANYTHING GOES

Wishing you - Day 4 Catch the bug Holiday chaos

Tuesday December 6, 2016
 
Welcome to our Holiday Chaos at Catch the bug with images from Bugaboo
 
Day 4 of our challenge.. The theme for this card is
 Clean as snow (keep it simple) NO patterned paper
 
 
 
 
This is the cute little ornament elf - the new release image.  As the theme goes I kept it CAS and no patterned papers.. I used a stampin up dot stamp and used Simon says white ink and embossed it in white. I cut the red circle with a MFT circle die and the image I cut with Simon says stitched die. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and used Simon says ink. I used my new spectrum noir sparkle pen on the blue ornament and the bells on her hat and shoes.. OH my this pen is quite sparkly .. So pretty I guess my wink of stella was really dry or this pen is fantastic.. Pretty CAS card don't you think

Friday December 2, 2016
 
Welcome to another fun Free Friday from Bugaboo Stamps ... You can see the projects the design team made up at Catch the bug.
 

This is the fun Free Friday called Santa Ho Ho Ho..  I fussy cut the image out and added him to my Postage stamp die from My favorite things. I had a scrap piece from a project I plan to do for our Christmas Chaos.. just trying to get my ideas in my head on paper so this was a sample.. We'll see how it comes out.LOL. I added a strip of stitch scallop die below the sentiment which all are from Simon Says I then added some half pearls to his coat and goosebumps to the lower right corner.. Ink is from Stampin up and  Santa is colored in copics.  If you're looking for a quick fun Christmas image this would be perfect to pick up and free is all the better.

Thursday December 1, 2016
 
 
The theme this month is Christmas Stamps 
I am sure you have been making Christmas cards and using stamps.. so you can enter up to 3 times over at Creative with Stamps
 
 
Make sure you add this banner below showing what the challenge is to your blog when you add your card for our challenge. It's sad to see some haven't added this banner so they are not able to win because of that..
 

This is my card using the Simon Says stamp set. I used some white ink and did spatter on the kraft cardstock. I than stamped the sentiment. I stamped the trees in Ranger ink and cut them out. I stamped the trunk right to the card base and used foam to add the trees to give depth. I used some liquid pearls and added white / silver to the trees. I did not fill each dot but here and there.. I then used Simon Says star die and added them to the top of the trees. I am liking the way it came out.
