I have used Stella Christmas Prozac and created this

Cranberry Snowman

Here's another Christmas card!  This one features a snowman and not your usual Christmas colors.  I still may add a sentiment to this one in the lower right hand corner.

Things With Wings

Hi everyone.  Today's Paper Ala Mode challenge is Things With Wings.  That can be anything from a ladybug to angels or fairies.  Our sponsor is Sami Stamps.  I used a cute image called Bird On My Knee to make a birthday card.

Everything is colored with Copic markers except for the sky, which was colored with chalk.  I used a piece of denim to get the pattern on her shorts, and I had a little fun creating stripes on her shirt.

I'll try to be back with another Christmas card tomorrow or Monday.  Enjoy your weekend!

Blue Christmas

Another Christmas card as promised (okay, I'm later than I had planned to be!)  This one uses Lovely As A Tree from Stampin Up.  I'll be back tomorrow with a card for the Paper Ala Mode challenge.  See you then!

It's that time of year

Today my co-worker said "It's November first - time for Christmas music!" and she proceeded to play Christmas songs all day on her computer.  After she left for the day I found myself humming a Christmas song!  So, I decided it's time to start sharing the Christmas cards I've been making all year.

This uses a new tree stamp I bought called Snowy Trees (Hero Arts).  I gold embossed it and then stamped the sentiment (Stampin Up) on black and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Lots of shine on this one!

See you tomorrow with another one!

only 8 more

8 more what?  8 more Sundays before Christmas - in fact the 8th Sunday will be Christmas day!  That is why I chose to make a Christmas card for the Paper Ala Mode challenge this week where the theme is Anything Goes.

Our sponsor is Beccy's Place and I chose this adorable snowman fence from her Snow Folk Set.  I love the different expressions on the snowmen's faces.  Of course I had to add a little snow and glitter!

Two cards to share

Hi everyone.  I wanted to share a couple of cards with you today.  The first one is one I made for a cousins birthday.  I used a flip it die to create the base - much easier than cutting and measuring!

Here's the inside of the card

Next up is the card I made for the Paper Ala Mode challenge where the theme is flowers.  Our sponsor is Star Stampz.  I used a cute fairy image called Cadence.  Not a ton of flowers, but she does have some in her hair, and I added one that I punched out of some balsa wood as an embellishment.

Thankful Fall Is Here

Here's a Fall card I made for a swap.  I did the leaves on Yupo paper with different alcohol re-inkers.  Then I stamped the leaves, embossed them with gold embossing powder and cut them out.  I used Stampin Up sets Fall Whimsy and Sincere Salutations.

77 days until Christmas!

Hi everyone.  This week Paper Ala Mode is getting into the Christmas spirit.  We are sponsored by Digi Stamps 4 Joy and Conie Fong Art.  If you are looking for some inspiration to jump start your Christmas cards then head over to our challenge and have a look!

I used a Conie Fong Art image called Joy To The World and created a fun shaker card.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up, and I finished it off with some red ribbon and a couple of snowflake buttons.  Thanks as always for looking!

Pumpkin Pickin' Time

Hi everyone!  The Paper Ala Mode challenge this week is to make Halloween Card or use Fall colors on your project.  The sponsor of the challenge is Dollar Graphics Depot.  I chose a couple of images from the Pumpkin Girls Combo Set and created a little scene of a girl who has just chosen the perfect pumpkin for her jack-o-lantern!

Here are a couple of really quick Halloween cards I made with some silhouette images from Bugaboo Stamps.   I used distress inks on glossy card stock for the background and then printed the images on top.

Come play with us!

Pop Up Christmas

Hi everyone!  I recently joined a pop up card swap and wanted to share the cards I made with you.  These were great fun to make!  I love how it looks like the element is floating in air when you open it.

Anything Goes at Paper Ala Mode

Hi everyone!  The Paper Ala Mode challenge at the Outlawz this week is Anything Goes!  We are being sponsored by Crafts and Me.  I chose this wonderful image called My Time and created a birthday card with a little bit of a unique pop up fold.

Why don't you come join us and share what you've been working on?

I colored with Copic markers and used some stickles for the bath bubbles.  Here's the inside

Three Little Kittens

Hi everyone.  I know it's been too long since I posted anything.  I have been making cards, just haven't been sharing a lot of them because I've been waiting for the people they are going to to receive them.  The cards I'm sharing today were made for a shaped card swap that I joined.  I actually had some success with my scan n cut cutting the files to make these!  The top photo shows all three sans whiskers.

I finally found the perfect whiskers in an old push broom at work!  I think they turned out cute and then I noticed that the middle kitty has the pink part of his ear glued on wrong!  Oh well, I guess it gives him personality!

Water Coloring

Hey everyone.  Okay, I have to tell you right off the bat that I am not happy with my project today.  The Paper Ala Mode challenge this week is water coloring. Our sponsor is Bugaboo, and I picked out this cute Santa's Reindeer tag image.  

I water colored the background and added some little snowflakes and crystals.  I tied it off with a silver  tie.  I am not entirely happy with the whole thing, but it will work as a tag.  

If you have mad water coloring skills, come share your talents  with us.
