Warmest winter wishes - Always Fun Challenges #89

Monday December 17, 2018
Time for another challenge at Always Fun Challenges #89
and our theme is CHRISTMAS CAROL
There wont be a #90 challenge as it's a break for Christmas
but we will be back with #91 on Dec. 31st..
The Christmas carol I chose is "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" by Bing Crosby / Perry Como and many other great singers..
I love this card as a Christmas card cause it has a beautiful winter scene. I chose a simple sentiment because I didn't want to take away from the scene. I used PSK stamp set and I stamped and embossed it in silver and using Mission paints I painted the scene. I used Paper trey ink sentiment and added to the card. I added some glitter to different parts of the snow areas. For the dark green background I ran it through an embossing folder.  I went around the scene edge with Quick quote chalk ink then layered this image on the green. The scene is very soft. I maybe should of used a darker embossing powder for the image.. it's very soft.

Christmas is Claus for celebration! - Creative with Stamps Challenge

Saturday December 15, 2018
It's mid month reminder for our challenge at Creative with Stamps #33 and the theme is SANTA OR GIFT
 Note: CWS Challenges do not have many "Guidelines", but please read and follow the few we do have to be eligible to win.
I was looking for a large enough scrap for the Paper trey ink tree die.. well I found 12x12 Club scrap piece. So I cut it down and then used the die to create the tree. I LOVE the look the paper is beautiful. I stamped the Simon Says Santa and colored with Mission paints. I heat embossed the SS sentiment. I used washi tape for grounding and tree trunk. To finish the tree I die cut some stars from SS die and colored with copics and added to the tree and one in Santa's hand as he's adding more..

Season's greetings - Bugaboo new release

Tuesday December 11, 2018
Welcome to Bugaboo new release..
It's really new release into the store..
Check out the fun creations by the design team over at

This image is called Seasons greetings feet.. I really thought this would be a great CAS card since the image isn't really that big. I started with a bluish card stock and I took some Stampin up blue ink and rubbed it on the inside of the embossing folder and ran it through my vagabond. I then colored the image with copics. added some Wink of Stella to the snow, snowman and fur on Santa's pants. This is such a simple card to make.
