Happy Friday! It’s time for a new Brown Sugar Challenge and it’s an “Anything Goes” theme. Our sponsor for this week is Crafty Sentiments offering 3 digital images from their store. Thanks Crafty Sentiments!!
For my card today, I colored “Snowman Couple”” with Copic Markers and used a My Favorite Things oval die. The background is a Simon Says Stamp falling snow die backed with black paper. To finish off I added ribbon, brads, and sequins for a little holiday sparkle.
We look forward to seeing what your “Anything Goes” cards look like. You have until December 10th to enter at Brown Sugar Challenges. See you there!
Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps December blog hop. This month we are celebrating all things Birthday with our designers choosing “From The Heart” images that best reflect the month of our birth. Isn’t that fun? The hoppers will be guessing what month each designer is born based on the image chosen. I’ll give you a hint on mine “Pigs love to eat candy.”
As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. On the blog, Faith is also hosting a challenge to add your birthday month card with a $10.00 gift certificate prize. This challenge will run through Jan 3, 2016.
Here is my project, using “Pumpkin Pitwit.” I began cutting out the “Wonky Frame” die by My Favorite Things which I stamped using an Impression Obsessions scratch background in Hero Arts Shadow Ink.
I colored up my Pigwit with Copic Markers in Roo, RV11, and BV20. For my pumpkins I used E15, YR18, YR15, Y35 and the leaves are G99, G94, G21 and YG03. For my background I used W3, W1, W00 then added texture with 91% Alcohol and a terry cloth rag.
For the Balloons, I inked them up with Hero Arts Ombre Inks, then stamped multiple sized stars with Simon Says Stamp “Lots of Stars” and finished off with the sentiment and die set by Papertrey Ink.
Now head over to Kelly Schelske’s Blog and see what she has created.
Thanks a bunch for hopping with us today. You have until Monday December 7th at 6 am EST to enter. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday December 9th.”
It’s Friday and time for a new release at A Day For Daisies! In addition, we are are also starting a new challenge inspired by the below photo of “Modern Christmas.” We’d love to have you pop by the ADFD Blog by December 17th to enter your card for a chance to win some free images!
For my Design Team inspiration I used the image, “Christmas Wish” today. I started by paper piecing the sweater with Studio Calico paper. I then colored my skunk with cool grey Copic Markers and shaded with warm grey’s.
The pine boughs are from a Penny Black stamp set called, “Nature’s Gift,” which I embossed with clear over white ink. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and works so perfectly with this image.
