SS Snowman Tag

Hi. I've just got enough time to squeeze in this blog post before the end of the challenge. I've designed this tag for the Outlaws Monthly Progressive Challenge. The image this month is called Snowman (65snowman) and created by Sandisamples.

I've coloured him using pencils. I then stuck him to a hand cut gift tag that I coloured using Distress Ink. I took some small foam balls, cut them in half and stuck them to the tag. I've finished off with a few die cut swirls and a small bow.


I'd like to enter this tag into the following challenges

GSS Wishlist Santa Tag

Hi everyone!! Christmas eve is here! How exciting.. Although I'd like to squeeze one more project in before all the fun of Christmas kicks in. Using this month's Garda Steiners Designs December Progressive Challenge image called Wishlist Santa Claus. As I've finished all my Christmas cards for this year I decided to turn him into a Christmas tag. I made this Christmas cracker gift packet using a kitchen role tube cut in half. I then wrapped it up and added the tag and ribbons.

I've coloured this image using Spectrum Noir Markers and pencils. I've fussy cut him out and made him a tag. I hope that you like what I've done with him.

ABB Postie Winter Card

Hi again. This is my second post of the day. I think I'm nearly at the end of my Christmas creations for this year. However I have a few more creations I'd like to share. This Christmas card has been created using a Art By Barb Designs Digital Stamp called Postie. I think this is such an adorable image.

So I've coloured it using with a mixture of Spectrum Noir Markers and Rembrandt Aquarell Pencils. I've used Spellbinders die cut in the background and I hole punched some circles to use as snowflakes. Then I added holly shaped stamps and I think that the sentiment is a digital stamp created by Tracy Wray from Crafty Cats 957 Designs Digital Stamps


I'll be adding this card to the Art By Barb Facebook Group. We are having a Christmas break from Challenges in the group but we'd love it if you could stop by. We have a fabulous FB Challenge coming up in the new year.

LS Picture Christmas Card

Hello so I've been playing around with card designs. I decided to create a picture card. I've used a Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamp called Christmas Tree Decorating. The card has been designed for the new Lemon Shortbread Blog Challenge #31.

Which can be removed if they like to. I kept the background simple by adding die cut snowflakes. The sentiment is a digital stamp created by Desert Diva Blog. I've finished of with a homemade lacy bow. I added a photo of my two children dressed up, on this card and gave it to my Mum.

CAAB Mary and Drummer Boy Card

Hello everyone! I hope that your having a lovely day/evening.  I'm stopping by to share my Cute As A Button inspiration post for this month. I've decided to crated a Christmas Card using two Cute As A Button images called Mary Did You Know and Drummer Boy. I thought that these two images went together really well and can be found at the Cute As A Button Store.

I've coloured them both with a mixture of Spectrum Noir Markers and Rembrandt Aquarell Pencils and fussy cut them out. To create the sky background I've used Distress Inks like water colours. Then I added small die cut stars and a big heat embossed glittery gold star that I created. I also computer generated the sentiment. Mary is stood in the stable which I designed. To add texture I added straw/dried out grass to the roof.




There is currently a challenge going on at the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and a Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group.
We'd love to see you come and join in the fun.
