Happy Holidays

Just a super quick and easy christmas card using CCDesigns adorable penguin stamp. I just received my new web cam in the mail, so I figured I would try figuring out how to use the thing by filming the card making process. I broke the video in to 2 seperate parts. For the links to the videos, scroll down to the bottow of this post.

Cute Christmas Kitty

This card is 2 challenges in 1, The layout is from the weekly sketch challenge over at MFT and the colour combo is from Wednesdays colour challege over at SplitCoast Stampers . This weeks colour combo (#cc453) always baked cherries, was a lot of fun, though I didnt have any artichoke colour ribbon, so I went with a deeper green shade.

Simon Says... Use an arrow

Back again with another card for the weekly Simon Says Stamp Challenge. This week you have to use an arrow on your project. I however, had absolutely nothing in my stash that had anything even resembling an arrow. Luckily its an easy shape to cut out of card stock, which I did, then I dabbed some glossy accents on top.

ATS Challenge - Valentine Treats

Back again for another wednesday challenge entry for All That Scraps. This week the challenge was to create a Valentines treat, so I decided to go with a gift tag (a rather large gift tag compared to the teensy gift I attached it to, lol!)
Also, I recorded the process, though I am still trying to get the hang of the lighting and trying to stop the camera from shaking. You can find the video on this post, just below the picture of the tag, if anyone is interested.

ATS Challenge... Anything Goes

I had some spare time today to throw together a last minute entry to the Anything Goes Challenge over at the All That Scraps Wedsday challenge blog.

Since I printed the digital image rather large, the card itself had to be kept quite simple.

I tried doing a yellow halo effect around the image, were the light from the sparklers would hit, but I don't really like the way that it turned out... ah well.

Simon Says... Black & White with a Splash of Colour

Another card made for the weekly challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Blog. This week the challenge was to make a mostly black and white card, with just a little splash of colour, so I grabbed this adorable Paper Smooches image and made this card.

I happen to buy a box of odd sized envelopes by mistake the other day, so the card that I made for this challenge is 3 3/8 x 6 1/4 to fit the envelope.

And, just for fun, I recorded myself making the card. Scroll down for the video.
