Season's Greetings - {TYIC#11}

Hi there friends!  Today I have another fun tag that I created for the latest Tag You're It! Challenge.  The inspiration for challenge #11 is Maureen's gorgeous card with rose tag.
For my tag I pulled inspiration from Maureen's double tag layout and her chevron background.  I added a touch of chevron using some Doodlebug designer paper along the bottom of my tag and kept to a similar layout with my image and sentiment (even though I went the cute route instead of a more formal).  I used the Paper Smooches stamp set Swanky Snowdudes (love this set) and stamped, colored with Copics and glittered up one of the snowmen from the set.
Thanks for popping in and I hope you'll take the time to play along with the Tag You're It Challenge!

Sending Holiday Cheer - {25 Days of Christmas Tags/TYIC#11}

Hello crafty friends!  Today the Tag You're It! design team has posted a new challenge and along with the new challenge, the team is also joining in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags blog hop hosted by the talented Tracey McNeeley.
We were asked to create a Christmas tag using the latest Tag You're It! Challenge as our inspiration.
For my card I used the Hero Arts stamp set Sending Holiday Cheer.  I started out with a white card base, then a snowflake embossed panel and then my tag which I matted using a piece of My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland designer paper.  The house was colored using Copic markers and to finish off my card I tied on some silver cording and added some glitter to my image.
Leave a comment here on this post by November 27th for a chance to win a prize from the following companies listed below.  And make sure to check out Tracey's blog each day for more 25 Days of Christmas Tags and chances to win.


Good luck and thanks for stopping by!

Season's Greetings - {Paper Smooches/CASology}

 Hello everyone!  I've got another Paper Smooches card showcasing the fun stamp set Swanky Snowdudes.  This stamp set is so fun to work with.  I'm entering this card in the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge and also the CASology Challenge which is to use or incorporate a flag in your project.  After seeing the wonderful inspiration from their design team and looking at Kimberly's adorable penguin north pole card, I shamelessly cased her "north pole flag idea" for my own card.
For my card I started out with a white card base, then added a panel of white card stock with a smaller piece of Doodlebug Designer paper at the bottom.  I then stamped my snowman, north pole and bird onto a 2 1/2"x4 1/4" piece of white card stock and colored the images with Copic markers.  I added a white snow hill, sentiment flags and stamped three soft grey snowflakes.  The holly for the snowman's hat was stamped on scrap card stock, colored and attached then I added some glossy accents to the berries.  I also added some glitter to the snowman's scarf, the snowflakes and the little birds Santa hat.  The banners with button accent were added to the upper left corner of the card to finish it off.

Only 36 days until Christmas!

Let's Chill - {Fusion/Paper Smooches}

 Hello!  I hope you're having a good day.  The card I have for today is perfect for our weather here in Michigan with it's light snow, strong winds and freezing temps.
I used the fun Paper Smooches stamp set Swanky Snowdudes along with the sketch and inspiration from this week's Fusion Challenge.  I'm also entering this card in the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge.  I started out with a white card base, then added a panel of hawaiian shores cardstock with a white embossed panel on top of that.  Next I cut a piece of white cardstock, stamped my sentiment in black ink, then used three different colored inks for an ombre look, inked up one side of my snowflake embossing folder and ran it through.  I colored my cute little snowdude using Copic markers and glittered him up, added some glittery buttons and a snowflake and I was finished.

If you live in a wintery state, I hope you stay warm.
