Elisabeth Bell has done it again, designing the most beautiful images for us to play with.
This months release is no exception, these little ones are amazing!!!

I loved coloring this image. There are so many elements. When I was done coloring it, I could not bear to put it on something like a card or a tag. I would not want anything to happen to it. It was a little work of art. So, I putting my thinking cap on and checked my closet full of stash and found a little picture frame I had picked up at our local Ikea about a year ago. It was perfect for my image. I used DP from Cosmo Cricket and cardstock from PTI. I added a borderpunch and framed it up. To add another dimention, I cut out vinyl on my Cricut machine and placed it on the glass of my frame.

MelJen's Challenge

This week's challenge at MelJens is to use red, green and gold. When I saw the new release this week: I was awestruck. So many amazing images. Each reindeer has it's own unique personality. I have never seen a more fun rendition of Santa and his reindeer. . I knew I had to make something special. I decided to make a wall hanging that I could enjoy year after year at Christmas time. I purchased a shadowbox frame at Michaels. I covered the backing with cardstock and cut out house die cuts with my Cricut machine. I also used flocking on the houses to represent snow. I added a moon, using my spellbinders, and rhinestone stars. I used most of the new release images this week and colored them with my Copic Markers. I used cardstock from American Crafts. To add further dimention, I cut out "Season's Greetings" in vinyl using my Cricut machine. I added several different sizes of dimentionals to make this image 3D and to allow the back and front reindeer to be seen and to be represented realistically. On my images I added Stickles, Clear Snap Smooch and lots of rhinestones.

I followed the ABC Christmas Challenge of "Yuletide". I also participated in the Beli challege of using Christmas paper or embellishments. I also used the Digital Tuesday challenge of "Baby it is Cold Outside". I also followed the ABC challenge of using jewels or gems on my 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 Challenge

The Pixie Dust Studio Challenge this week is to make a holiday card using nontraditional colors. I chose the December Pixie image. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I used DP from The Greeting Farm and PTI cardstock. I added ribbon, rhinestones, and dimensionals. I use the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch challenge for inspiration. I also played along with the Belli challenge of using Christmas papers and or embellishments. 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!
