Thanks A Bunch

Today I am sharing a card that I made with the Wild Rose-Briar Stamp Set from Crafter's Companion. 


I stamped the leaves directly onto the paper and colored them with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Marker DG3. I stamped the flowers on another piece of paper and colored them with PP5, PP4 & PP2. Then I cut them out and used some flower making tools to roll the edges and give them some dimension before I added them to the card. I added some Crystal Clear Sparkle pen just to the edges of the petals and some Glossy Accents in the flower centers.

Exclusive Scrapper's Delights Image {Kit and Clowder Advent Day 14}




Hey there! Today I am sharing the card I made with this image from Scrapper's Delights. You can only get this image in the Kit and Clowder Facebook group as part of their annual Advent Calendar. 




I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and added the white dots on the reindeer with white acrylic paint. I also added some Snowtex for texture on the snow. I decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple to keep the image as the main focus of the card.

Kit and Clowder Advent Calendar Stamp Anniething Freebie

A few days ago Stamp Anniething gave this adorable free image as part of the Kit & Clowder Advent Calendar. The image is called Brooke as Anna, but I colored her as both Anna and Elsa.  I wanted to make tags for my twin girls, but one is an Anna fan and the other is all about Elsa. 



I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, I also used a white gel pen and the Crystal Clear Sparkle pen on Elsa.  I cut some snowflakes and the border with some Crafter's Companion Dies out of purple glitter cardstock.

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Chaos Day 7 {Freebie Bingo}

So all week I've been calling this Christmas Chaos when it's actually Holiday Chaos, I'm sure you all knew what I was talking about though! 

I am so happy that I managed to do all 7 projects again this year. This was the most challenging year for me doing this so far. But I have so much fun playing along with all the challenges, I just had to do them all! 

The final challenge is Freebie Bingo. Here's a peek at the Bingo Board. 


I used Stocking Santa Ho Ho Ho again, he was the freebie image when I checked the Bugaboo Store this morning. For my Bingo I used the right hand column- Glitter, Snowflakes and non-traditional Holiday colors. 


I colored him with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers:  FS9 FS7 FS4 JG6 JG5 JG2 BT7 IB3 IB2 EB1 TN1 IG8 IG6 IG2 IG1 

I used a piece of the silver Luxury Mirror Cardstock from Crafter's Companion on the background. That stuff is so cool! And it embosses beautifully, I embssed this piece with snowflakes. I also cut some snowflakes out of Glitter Cardstock in colors that matched the Santa image.

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Chaos Day 6 {Flashback Holiday}

And now I have my project for day 6 of the Christmas Chaos challenges at Catch the Bug. This time the theme is Flashback Holiday (use an old image and old paper).

I used the image Stocking Santa Ho Ho Ho and some paper that has been in my stash forever (because I've been hoarding it!). It didn't photograph well, but it has really pretty holographic sparkly snowflakes on it. 


I colored Santa with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers CR8 PP5 PP4 FS9 FS7 FS4 GG2 GG1 EB2 TN1

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Chaos Day 5 {Make it Funny}

Hello again! I'm back with my project for Day 5 of the Christmas Chaos challenges at Bugaboo Stamps. The theme this time is "Make it Funny" 

Since we live in cold Ohio and my sister lives down South where it's a tad warmer, I thought this would be a fun card to send her. 


I used the image called Snowman Family. I added the sentiment in Photoshop before printing the image, 

I colored the image with the new Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers (coming soon to the U.S.). 

Illustrator Markers used: True Blue (TB4), Periwinkle (TB2), Pearl Blue (TB1), Dusty Pink (FS2), Pale Mint (BT1), Mango (BO2), Mimosa (GY2) - I love that there is a marker called Mimosa! - Leather (TN7), Earth Brown (EB4), Blue Grey 1 (BGR1).

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Chaos Day 4 {Clean as Snow}

I'm back again with another Christmas Chaos project- there will be 3 more of these posts coming up! It was a mad dash to get the last 3 projects done in time, but I did it. 

The challenge theme for day 4 was "Clean as Snow", or no patterned paper. I used one of the images from the Christmas Trio Blocks image. 



I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and placed on a plain white tag that I had embossed with a snowflake pattern. I added a little strip of glittered cardstock just to break up the white a little bit. Then I stamped To: on the bottom and added some ribbon.

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Chaos Day 3 {Tag With Red & White Stripes}

On the third day of Christmas Chaos...

The challenge is to make a tag with red and white stripes. I didn't see the red and white stripes detail until I after colored my image so I had to get creative with the rest of the tag. Candy Cane Patterned Paper to the rescue! 

I used one of the Winter Kidz images for my tag. I added my daughter's name in Photoshop and colored it to match the image. Every Christmas I help Santa by making a gift tag to go on each of my kids' presents Christmas morning.  (See last year's tags HERE)

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Chaos Day 1 {All That Sparkles}

Christmas Chaos is back at Catch the Bug. I always love this week with Bugaboo Stamps, it's so much fun! 

It actually started on Saturday, but I am just now getting around to posting my projects from the weekend. The theme for the first challenge is All That Sparkles.  

I used one of the new elf images, Bug Elf 3, and lots of glittered cardstock on my card. 


I used some snowflake dies to cut the snowflakes from glittered cardstock in pink and green and the silver Luxury Card from Crafter's Companion. The Silver Foiled paper I used in the background is also from Crafter's Companion. This card really sparkles and shines!
