Trimming the Tree

Trim the Tree

Trimming the TreeHello there!!! It’s just starting to look like spring here, so that must mean that it’s time to make a Christmas card!! This week at C.R.A.F.T., our theme is just that, Christmas!  We have 2 amazing sponsors, Star Stampz and Digital Papercraft :)

 

 

 

 

I used Imagine Fairy Girl, from Digital Papercraft for my card.  She’s not really a Christmas image, but I saw her reaching to put a star on the tree as soon as I came across the image :)  I colored her with my SN markers, then glittered up her wings (of course….fairies need sparkle wings!)  I fussy cut her out, then die cut 2 trees, which I cut up and layered, then decorated with glitter.  I mounted them with foam pads on a die cut shape that I edged in doodles, and placed a glittery star in her hand.  I put this on a DP background, then found some coordinating ribbon to accent the corners.  A bow and a stamped sentiment finish this off :)

I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I used Ballerina Emma, and colored her up with my SN markers. Yesterday it was feeling very spring like here (today, not so much, with about 6″ of snow overnight), so I used soft pastel colors. I used scraps from 2 different paper collections, and cut the number 4 out with my Cricut. I used a die from Elizabeth Craft  for the bunting. Pink ribbon bows, some yellow flowers, a Brad and glitter glue pulled everything together, ready for the fussy cut image to dance onto the card :)

I colored this image with my SN markers, then started having fun with my new star border die, from Frantic Stamper.  I did the inlaid die cut technique, using Silver mirror and glitter papers. For the sentiment, I used my Paisley and Chalkboard Fonts (I think) Cricut cartridges. I sprinkled a few of the leftover stars around for some extra zing.

Snowman TrioI was given the Little Snowman set from Scrap N’ Dipity.  I was having a hell day and did not have any mojo at ALL!! :(  I colored parts of the snowman with my SN pens, did a confetti background with same, then hit the little guys with glitter.  I found some coordinating papers, and layered them up…..love the light blue sparkle paper :)  I cut a sentiment on my Cricut, then added some bling to balance it out.  That’s all I got …..  darn life!

Coffee Fairy

Christmas Coffee Fairy

Hi there!! It’s time again for another challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.  We realize how easy it is to leave our Christmas cards until the last minute, then fly into a panic in December, so we’ve been giving you Christmas theme challenges throughout the year to help out a bit.  And with THAT preamble, you have probably guessed that our theme this week is Christmas!! Lol :)  For our sponsor, we have the fabulous  Nikki Burnette :)

Coffee FairyI was given the beautiful Sadie, to work with.  I colored her up with my SN markers, then glittered her wings up (because I have a firm belief that fairy wings sparkle!!)  For the cup and saucer, I dotted parts of each with a white gel pen, then colored them over again with colored pencils to get the polka dot effect without losing shading detail.

For the papers, I dove into my Christmas scrap folder and had some fun :)   I tied the bow, then adhered some candy canes that I fussy cut from another paper scrap and topped with Glossy Accents.  A computer printed sentiment and some silver glitter baubles finished this card off :)

I hope that you can stop by the  C.R.A.F.T.  challenge blog and enter a Christmas make, and while you are there, check out the beautiful inspirational projects that my amazing teammates have created :)

Wow, is there any possible way to get a decent picture of a card with this much sparkle going on? By the time I finished this little project, it looked like Tinkerbell threw up on me! Glitter everywhere! I used this sketch…..SNSSketch37from this weeks Sketch and Stash challenge. I also saw that the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and Charisma Cards were calling for glitter/sparkle in their current challenges, so I decided to combine them.  I just got some Frantage Mica fragments, and wanted to give them a whirl. I swirled some glue on a white oval and sprinkled some of the Frantage, along with purple glitter on it. I edged the oval with some black and silver shimmer chalk. Then I went digging around for some appropriate accents, and found the butterfly and flower stickers in my sadly neglected sticker stash. They are a transparent glitter sticker, so I stuck the butterflies onto teal paper, and the flowers on to cream, and cut them out. I layered and shaped them to give them some dimension before attaching to the background. This was layered on charcoal card stock, a doily was tucked behind, and a cream ribbon and bow was added. I stuck on some black gems to the flowers to give it a finishing touch. Now, I have to sweep and vacuum for a few weeks to get rid of the residue from the card.
