CCAYR Christmas Belles DT post time!

Hey all!  I am a bit behind in getting this post up, but I still wanted to share with you what I created for the CCAYR "Anything but a card" challenge:


I decided on an ornament for my non-card project, and for this one, I went waaaay back to an old technique.  I recently bought 3 packs of pretty German napkins for $.25 apiece, so I did some YouTube research, and found a few videos to go by.  I adhered the napkin to my chipboard die cut Spellbinders ornament using an adhesive sheet, smooshed Versamark ink all over it and sprinkled sticky embossing powder on top and heat set.  Then I sprinkled some DecoArt Glamour Dust glitter on top of that, and heat set it again.  This ornament is SUPER DUPER SPARKLEY!!!!  LOL!  As I always do when making these ornaments, I cut a piece of gold shiny paper for the top of the ornament, and also used the same gold paper for the top layer of the sentiment. To cover up the ugly back, I die cut a piece of sparkly white paper and glued that on.   I used my Crop-a-dile to make the hole, and then used some gold ribbon from my stash for the hanger.

Challenges:

MIUCB #17:  ATG or optional "3 or more layers" twist
Winter Wonderland:  Use ribbon or twine
The Merry Christmas Challenge:  ATG
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday:  ATG

Thanks so much for stopping by this evening.  I hope everyone is staying safe, and prayers for those dealing with the effects of hurricane Florence.

God Bless!

Christmas With The Cuties---THE CUTEST SNOWMEN

Hello bloggers!  I hope you are having a good week so far, even though it's only Monday.  At least those of us in the US have a long weekend coming up to look forward to!  :)  For now, let me share with you what I made for the Christmas With The Cuties challenge:  THE CUTEST SNOWMEN.


Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo, and the image I have used is called Eggbert WinterI just LOVE Eggbert...he is so stinkin' CUTE!  He is definitely one of my favorite Bugaboo characters!  I pulled out card stock colors that matched my patterned paper, and embossed the green layer with the Provo Craft Snowflake embossing folder.  I backed each of my elements with different colors.  Eggbert is colored with alcohol markers to match.  I happened to have a couple of snowflakes in my stash that were cut from some of the same card stock colors, so I added those with some 8mm sugar dots in the centers.  The sentiment comes from Honey Bee Stamps "Merry and Joy" stamp set.  I love all the different ways you can create sentiments with this set.  

Challenges:

12 months of Christmas Link Up #44:  ATG or optional "add some greenery" theme
Happy Little Stampers Christmas:  ATG or optional "add sequins" theme
ABC Christmas:  "P" for plain, "Q" for quotes, "R" for rabbits or robins
CHNC #400:  ATG or optional "use a reindeer" theme
Outlawz Twisted Thursday:  ATG or optional "use primary colors" twist

Well, that's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by, and please join us at the Christmas With The Cuties challenge!  We'd love to have you!

Take care and God Bless!

Christmas Crafts All Year Round---August Mid Month Challenge Inspiration

I am behind with my post for the CCAYR August mid-month reminder; sorry about that!  Here is what I made for the hot/warm colors challenge:


I created my panel by smooshing Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink onto my craft mat, and spraying with water.  I then used a small scrap of acetate to pick up the ink and add it to my panel.  When I couldn't do that anymore, I just took the watercolor paper to the ink.  I kinda thought I had created a bloodbath at first, but I decided to plow ahead anyway.  I was much happier with it after I embossed the sentiment, which is a Stamper's Anonymous wood stamp.  I finished this off by adhering it to a red panel that is on top of a white card base, and adding some sequins.

Challenges:

The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up #44:  ATG or optional "add some greenery" theme
HLS Christmas challenge:  ATG or optional "use sequins" theme
CHNC #399:  ATG

Thanks for stopping by this evening!  Please be sure to stop by the CCAYR blog to join in on the challenge with us!  

God Bless!

August Sasayaki Glitter Challenge: For the Guys!

Hello bloggers!  I hope you are all doing well.  Things here in PA are rainy.  I can't believe how much rain we have gotten this summer!  On the plus side, everything is nice and green...although getting out to mow the grass is a bit difficult!


For today's post, I am here to share what I made for the current Sasayaki Glitter challenge; Male Project:







I used the Christmas Roo image for my cards.  I wanted him to be the star of the show, so I sized him accordingly, and designed the angled edge in my Silhouette program.  I colored the image using alcohol markers, and added some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen on the bows of the presents.  In case you are wondering, the presents are in those pinks and purples because they are for his girlfriend!  LOL


Challenges:


12 Months of Christmas Link Up #44:  ATG or optional "add some greenery" theme
Mix It Up #16:  ATG or optional "acrylic block stamping" theme
ABC Christmas:  "P" for plain, "Q" for quotes, "R" for robins or rabbits
Fab 'n' Funky #404:  Christmas in July
HIMCR #363:  Any Holiday (Christmas in July)
Simon Says Monday:  Wild Things


Well, that's all for this post.  Thanks for joining me today.  Please check out the Sasayaki Glitter challenge, and join in with your male projects!  


God Bless!

Another great challenge at the Christmas With The Cuties blog! :)

Howdy bloggy friends!  I hope you are all doing well on this Tuesday afternoon.  Here in PA, we keep getting rain.  Rain, rain, RAIN!!!  Where we live, we are pretty much OK, but there are other areas that have been hit pretty hard with flooding.  Hershey Park even had to close due to flooding!  It is supposed to taper off by the end of the week...I sure hope so!  I hope all my PA friends are safe and sound!  

So, I am here today to share my card for the Christmas With The Cuties challenge:  Add Some Sparkle!

I chose a Bugaboo image for my card, and he can be found in this winter bear mini set.   SO CUTE!!  I colored him using alcohol markers, which I chose based on the green snowflake on the designer paper.  The card stock was also chosen to match that shade.  I decided to use that cute green ribbon from my stash to break up the patterned paper a bit.  On the image panel, I added a punched glitter paper snowflake from my bag o'snowflakes in my drawer, and stuck a sugar dot from love, Nicole in the middle.  Stickles adorns the brim and pompom of the bear's hat, and crystal clear Spectrum Noir shimmer pen is on the snow.  Do you think I have added enough sparkle?  LOL!

Challenges:


I'm going with bling, Bugaboo Christmas image, and sparkle.
Edited to add:  I won some images for this entry!  WOOT, WOOT!

Happy Little Stampers Christmas:  ATG or optional Santa twist

I went down the right side of the board, doing glitter, die cut, and card candi...I assume that covers the gem in the middle of the snowflake.

ABC Christmas:  use "N" for name (personalized card), use "O" for on (skates, seigh, etc.)
Simon Says Wednesday:  Use a die and/or punch

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I need to get this linked up, and head off to bed.  Have a good rest of the week, and God Bless!
