Robyn's Fetish Saturday Challenge

The Robyn's Fetish challenge this week is to make a card that is shabby chic or vintage. I went the shabby chic route. I noticed when researching this on the internet that shabby chic uses lots of sewing, ribbon and buttons. I chose the adorable girl with stocking from the Robyn's Fetish store and colored her with Copic markers. I added stitching to all the layers and finished it off with two types of ribbon and a button.

Make sure to visit the rest of the Design Team and see what they created with this challenge.

The Greeting Farm Farm Fresh Friday

The Farm Fresh Friday Challenge this week is to make a card without using any design paper. Very tough. I decided to make a card using Max who is one of the Twinkle Tots stamps.

I used my PTI cardstock and added interest by using border punches, a star paper clip, and rivets. I colored Max with Copic markers. I also stiched around the card.

Make sure and visit the rest of the Design team to see what they created for this challenge.

Twinkle Tots Ava

Here is another version of little Ava a Twinkle Tot stamp from The Greeting Farm. I colored her with Copic markers and place her atop PTI cardstock and K&Co. paper. This card is much bolder than the last one I made with the same image. Lots of layering and a ribbon and star charm for good measure.

Paper Pixie Challenge

Welcome to the first Paper Pixie Challenge. The challenge this week is to add texture to your project. I used the Santa image and added flocking. I admit this is my first time using flocking. I am a convert. I colored Santa and his friends with Copic markers and added dimentionals to make it pop on my treat box. This box holds a packet of cocoa and a bag full of holiday candy. I printed out the Santa image much smaller and used it as a seal for my cocoa packet wrapper. I also decorated a clothes pin to add interest and allow the recepient to have a little gift left over after all the goodies are gone.

Make sure and visit the rest of the Design Team members to see what they have created. To learn more about the challenge go to the Paper Pixies Challenge Blog. The winner of the challenge gets the entire Christmas Confetti release!!!!!

I'm the Queen

I used Ava one of the adorable The Greeting Farm Twinkle Tots for my card. I colored her up with Copic markers and added a little shimmer to her shoes with glitter glue. I embellished my card with rhinestones, ribbon and a heart charm. She reminds me so much of my daughter. I have a picture of her when she was little dressed up as Sleeping Beauty for Halloween.

Sit back, relax and craft!

I made a pillow box and added design paper, a border punch and felt ribbon. To finish off my box I topped it with the Santa image which is colored with Copic markers. I made a gift tag and tied it on the box with twine.
