You make me happy


hotairballoons copy

There is still time to do the CCEE challenge! This past week’s challenge was Stamp Etching. You can find a tutorial on how to use this technique over on Splitcoast Stampers

For my card I used Love is in the Air from a company no longer in business, Our Craft Lounge. I did the stamping etching on the balloons, at first I wasn’t to happy about it but the more I looked at the card, the more I did like how it turned out! I positioned each block to make it seem as if the hot air balloon was raising up in the sky. Colored them with copics and did a little masking with for the cloud.

With Sympathy

withsympathyajh

It is time for another CCEE challenge.

This week Vicky Gould continues as our challenge hostess for the month.

Today is the 20th anniversary of Vicky’s mom’s entrance into heaven… so for our challenge this week Vicky has asked us to make a sympathy card for your stash in her memory.

I used Cursive Greetings II by Paper Pretties for my card. Kept my card pretty clean and simple. Cuttlebugg’d the background, added a black trim and a black prima flower.

NCC November Release Look back

nutcracker1

Today we are taking a look back at North Coast Creations November Release. For more inspiration using the November Release be sure to visit the NCC Blog.

I used the Nutcracker for my card. So I have a confession to make… I can’t stand Nutcrackers! Don’t ask me why, I have no clue but they scare me. So working with this stamp was a challenge for me but in saying that, I LOVE how this card turned out!

I colored him with copics, using white gel pen on his teeth, coat and gloves. I also used NCC Sweet Christmas Wishes for my sentiment. Added a little dew drop bling at the top and a big three loop bow in the middle.

Christmas Tic-Tac-Toe


snowdog

It’s challenge time again over on the CCEE Stampers blog. Our challenge hostess is Lyn McAultry.

For our challenge this week, Lynn has challenged us to
Create a Christmas card using the tic-tac-toe board below. Use all three items in any row: across, down, or diagonally. You may add additional items to your card if you like, but you must include the 3 in the row you have chosen.

I went with Snow, Embossing, Glitter.

I used Snow Angel Murphy from North Coast Creations for my card. Colored Murphy with copics and cut him out completely. Attached him with dimensions. Used some fun papers for the background and a scallop die for the checked paper.

As for my snow, embossing, glitter….. I embossed the snow with Iridescent ice embossing powder so it looks like glitter when embossed. Hard to tell in the picture but it looks like Murphy is making a glitter snow angel.
