Christmas Wishes

Good morning everyone!

I have more exciting news to share today because I've also joined the wonderful & talented Design Team over at Sparkles Monthy... So Happy!

A new challenge is posted on the 15th of each month and this month the theme is...
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!
My card features a sweet stamp from WPlus9... I did a little paper piecing and the rest of the image was colored with Copics. I used a Whimsy Stamp die for the Zig Zag stitched rectangle, My Favorite Things dies for the fishtail flags and a Avery Elle die for the dotted snow border. I cut the trees out of three different colors of cardstock using Newton's Nook dies, then I added a generous amount of Glitter Dust Spray... I love this stuff- lots of sparkle and no loose glitter mess!! :) The papers are from Doodlebug Design and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.  

 That's all for now... thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams beautiful Christmas creations!

Costume Cats...

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!

Today I have a couple of cards to share and they feature cats dressed up for Halloween! :)

On my first card I used the adorable Kit or Treat image from Knitty Kitty Digis and colored it with Copics. The stitched round rectangles were cut with Pink & Main dies, I used Tim Holtz dies for the tiny bats and the sentiment was cut with a Paper Smooches die. All the edges were distressed and to finish it up I added some googly eyes and a little sparkle to the orange areas with a Wink of Stella pen.  
And on my second card I used my cute Paper Artsy stamp again :) It's stamped in black licorice ink and colored with Copics. The background was created with Carved Pumpkin and Twisted Citron distress Oxide inks. Once dry, I mixed a little Twisted Citron ink with Moonstone Glimmer Paste and applied it through Newton's Nook bat stencil. The bats were cut with a Paper Smooches die, I used My Favorite Things dies for the sentiment and a Lawn Fawn die for the grass.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
