Happy holidays - Always Fun Challenges #88

Monday December 10, 2018
 
Welcome to a fun challenge at Always Fun Challenges #88
our theme Santa
 
 Perfect time for another Christmas card.. (being on a DT that creates Christmas cards all year I have a nice stash already but what's one more). I was looking through my stamps and I love these trees so I stamped a bunch of them in the background and then using Simon Says hills die cut this out and added some touch of blue for the snow. I added the Mama Elephant snowman and reindeer and using gold cording added this to the images. I heat embossed the SS sentiment.

I miss you - Catch the bug Challenge

Saturday December 8, 2018
 
Hello. It's Saturday so a new challenge at
Our challenge is ANYTHING GOES
 
 
I am using the image called Kidz Jack Topper. You can find him in the Bugaboo store.
I started since he is leaning on a shelf or something.. by using a stencil and Ranger inks and masking off his little body and moving the stencil around to give a rock wall image... well kinda.. that was my attempt. I then colored the image with copics. I thought he looks like he's missing someone so I used Simon Says I miss you and stamped it in black. Then using a gray ink and stamping off I finished the background with the words.

You're my cup of coffee 7

Thursday December 6, 2018
 
It's Coffee Lovers blog hop and the theme is Fall/Winter
 
Ok I love this darling tea cup or in my case coffee cup.. It reminds me of my Auntie Mae and Auntie Eve's house during the holiday. Always beautiful fragile coffee cups. That's when coffee and tea was served in these cups vs. mugs.. The coffee cup paper is from We R Memory Keepers. The background is a paper that I don't know who it's by but there are soft snowflakes and same with small strip. Perfect for the winter theme and my relative memories during the holidays. I stamped the sentiment also from the stamp / die set  from Stamp Simply. Using a scrap I used the Coffee die from the set and black foam and cut this out and layered.  In person this card is really pretty.  It's not as washed out as it looks on the computer.

Day 6 Awkward holiday chaos Catch the bug

Thursday December 6, 2018
 
Welcome to Day 6 of Tis the season for awkward holiday chaos at Catch the bug
Our theme for today is HOW ABOUT THAT FRUIT CAKE?
 
This is my card using the colors required. The image is called Scene it Christmas sheep and you can find it in the Bugaboo store.  I thought this larger stamp would carry the colors. I colored the image with copics. I went over different areas with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen then went over the area with Glossy accents. I used Quick Quote chalk ink to distress the edge. The bottom sentiment is from Bugaboo and the top sentiment is from Simon  Says. I used Stampin up gray behind the image and the other papers are scraps. Cant believe tomorrow is the end of the week long Christmas challenge. Hope you've had fun.
