Christmas Card Challenge # 38 - Anything Goes.

Welcome to our Christmas Card Challenge!
We have Anything Goes this week!
I again opted for some tags:

I found these glittery pink tags and these sledge die cuts in my stash and decided to use them together.
I punched some presents and added them on top of the sledge.
Pink, gold, glitter and... presents! Perfect for Christmas!

challenge blog where you'll find some inspiration too!

Christmas Card Challenge #37 - Color.

Time for our monthly Color Challenge here at Christmas Card Challenges!
This week I decided to make a big tag:

The image was an old Pink Petticoat one which I printed on cardstock and colored with Copics.
I then chose a striped metallic paper from First Edition and mounted everything on a silver tag from my stash.
How cute is this little cat with its stocking!?

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for August - Mid-Month Inspiration.

Here I am again with a new Christmas card for this mid-month post for CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for August:
I chose these super sweet kids (AKV Christmas - Peeking from Bugaboo Stamps) and I colored them with Copic markers.
My original idea was to cut them in a circle and make a card and I actually cut the circle and was ready to make the card.
While looking for a suitable card base, I found this house-shaped card from a magazine and I thought it was perfect for these kids!
Thus, I printed a new image and colored it.
The patterned paper was the one I had chosen for the previous card: I still had a scrap which was perfect to trim and use as the roof.
I LOVE it!!!

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
We have a very sweet theme for you this week, angels!
This is my card:

I chose Little Angel Stamp from 2 Cute Ink, I colored him with Copics and positioned it on a journaling card from Lawn Fawn.
The background papers and the star borders are from a magazine.
Isn't he sweet?

My Daughter's Cute Little Fox.

As I mentioned last week in this post, my daughter and I worked with the same Gerda Steiner Designs digi stamp and that's what she made:
She colored this Cute Fox with my Copics and made a tag, cutting it with my die cutting machine.
She then printed her sentiment and made this super cute tag!
I love it so much that I asked her to let me have it so I could hang it on the wall around Halloween!
Of course, she's thrilled to enter Gerda Steiner Designs August Challenge!
Do you like it?

Christmas Card Challenge # 35 - Snowflakes.

Welcome back to our Christmas Card Challenges!
After the short break, we are ready to go back to our weekly schedule and get ready for Christmas!
We have a photo for you this week:

This is my card:

I enjoyed myself with a stamping only card, no coloring!
I chose a light blue ink and some snowflake stamps and started stamping on a small white card. Then, I added a few rhinestones and, of course, a tiny heart.
Very relaxing!
Can't wait to see your snowflakes!

A Cute Little Fox!

A rainy day here in my town, a perfect weather to talk about fall!
I have a cute little fox card to show you today:
It's Cute Fox and I received it from Gerda Steiner Designs as I took part in her July Challenge.
I opted for a fall theme and chose a background paper from ModaScrap. I colored the fox with my Copics and added a few pearls in the corners.
The banner is from Paper Smooches while sentiments and leaves are from TSG stamps (oh! how I miss them!).
I wanted a simple card with the little fox as the focus and I like how it has turned out!
I'd like to enter the following challenges:

My daughter also made a card with this fox, so stay tuned, I'll post it here soon!

We've been blessed with a very hot and sunny summer so far and Christmas seems still so far away...

I chose AKV - Snowman Sled 2 from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps.
I distressed the background with blue ink and added some embossed paper.
The snowman is colored with Copics.
I love the happiness of this little guy playing in the snow!
