Ink #201

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational - a word prompt - naughty.

A Tim Holtz sticker stating "naughty and nice list" was my starting point - so decided to go for a Santa cut out from a freebie paper and another freebie paper for the background. I added a die cut Lawn Fawn photo frame and die cut branches covered with glitter paste.

Please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies.

I'll be home for Christmas...

Here is another Christmas card ready and done.

I used a sweet image from Penny Black. I actually think it's from a birthday set, but by adding a glittery die cut tree I think it turned out festive. I colored with my Promarkers and added glossy accent to the car windows.

The embossed background I received from Monika of Creative with Monika some time ago.
The sentiment is a chipboard one from Tim Holtz - I've used these a lot on this year's cards.

This card is for: 
Penny Black and More - Christmas
Addicted to Stamps and More - #368 Holiday
Passion For Promarkers Challenge - #520 Sparkle and Shine

Wreath/Flowers/Winter clothing

Christmas is quickly approaching and I got to get those last Christmas cards done. This card was surprisingly quick to make, I'm normally a slow card maker.

The wreath and dies used to decorate it are from the same Craft&You die set. I used glitter paste on the wreath and the poinsettias I ran through an embossing folder before inking the edges.
The girl is a paperdoll from Tim Holtz.
The background I stamped with white ink, using a script stamp.
Finally I added a sentiment and lots of liquid enamel accents around the wreath.

This card is for:
ABC Christmas Challenge - W for Wreath/X for FauX
Allsorts - #546 Christmas Flowers
Christmas Crafts All Year Round - Stockings or other Winter Clothing

Ink #200 Celebration+photo

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational - Celebration - as we are celebrating our 200th challenge.

I was inspired by the colors of the photo and I was thinking of celebration as in celebrating Christmas - my favorite time of the year.

Most of the stamps are from Concord&9th. First I stamped with white ink and then a second layer of purple and of red for the pattern inside of the snowflake. I heat embossed the sentiment with white EP and added gold frantage.
