MelJen's Thursday Challenge

Meljen's Designs Challenge this week is to make an easel card. I used the "Artist Mug" digital image on my card. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I added ribbon and a tag. The dp is from my K&Co. and the cardstock is from PTI.

For some reason I have never been able to get an easel card to stand up. I never seem to make them correctly. However, my card is standing and has been doing so for days! I think I finally conquered my easel card phobia:)

I used the Sweet Sketch challenge for inspiration. I also followed the Digital Tuesday Challenge which was to make a Birthday Card.

Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations by the DT using these images! You can purchase these fabulous images and others from MelJen's Designs at the Whimsy Site.

Pixie Dust Studio Christmas in July Thursday Challenge

The Pixie Dust Studio Challenge this week is to make a gift card holder. I love giving gift cards and this little holder just came together so nicely. I used the nativity image and colored it with Copic Markers. This is one of my very favorite images from Pixie Dust Studio. It is the only Nativity image I have seen that I can color. Kathy always comes up with the most fabulous images! I used The Greeting Farm design paper and PTI cardstock. I added a button and a little velcro to keep the card holder shut. Make sure to check out all of the other DT members for inspiration. I cannot wait to see what you make for the challenge! You would be amazed what a little magic and pixie dust will do!

Pixie Dust Studio Nutcracker New Release

I chose Clairethe new image from the Nutcracker release to create my festive card. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I made a bifold box, perfect for holding a little holiday gift or some goodies. I used PTI cardstock and DP from my stash. I added a ribbon and used my Spellbinders for die cuts.

I remember seeing the Nutcracker Ballet with my daughter when she was five or six. The wonder on her face when seeing all the dancing and listening to the music is a memory I will cherish forever.

Make sure to take a look at the Pixie Dust Studio Blog and take a look at all the wonderful images in the store. With a little magic and pixie dust anything is possible!
