Color My Christmas...

Cardz TV challenge this time is to make a Christmas card using only the colors: red, pink, green and white. Here is what I created:

My stamped image is from Tiddly Inks. Isn't she adorable? I stamped her onto kraft paper then colored with Copic markers and a white gel pen. The heart was stamped with red ink from Stampin Up and then cut out. I used pop dots to place it on the card front. My sentiment is from the Cardz TV stamp set; "Just Saying". I used an embossing folder and my Cuttlebug to emboss the pink edging with hearts. I then used some ink to distress them a bit. My final touch was drawing a border around the kraft paper with a brown journaling pen.
Here is the second card that I created for this challenge:

For this card I used a Unity stamp with Olive Green ink from Stampin Up for my owl. I cut him out and used pop dots to place him on the card. My card base for both cards is white card stock that I cut into A2 card size. I used a piece of designer paper that I had in my scrap pile for the horizontal lines. My sentiment was also stamped in the same Olive Green ink. I distressed the edges of the sentiment and then placed on another scrap of paper in a complimentary color. Then I cut out three hearts from the same scrap paper as my horizontal lines paper. These were glued down in a row and outlined with a gold gel pen.
I also used the same pen to draw dashed lines on the top part of my horizontal paper.
I hope you feel intrigued to join us in this challenge. Please check out my fellow designers creation at Cardz TV and join in the fun! You just might win a Cardz TV stamp set of your choice!

Giving Thanks...

This time around the challenge at CardzTV is to create something giving thanks. I thought with Thanksgiving right around the corner and our neighbors to the North(Canada)just celebrating their Thanksgiving I would create a Thanksgiving card. So without further ado here it is:

I used two different stamp sets from Cardz TV for the sentiments;
My card base is 4 1/2" by 5 1/4". The striped background paper is from Michael's. I cut my turkey out of the Cricut cartridge "Autumn Celebrations" using my Expression. A little self stick glitter tape,three "dots", and my image placed on pop dots and my card was finished... I left the inside blank so I could write a nice note to my nephew when I send it.
Check out the challenge and all of my team mates creations at CardzTV, then join in the fun! You might just be the winner of one of Mary's wonderful stamp sets! The challenge runs for two weeks ending November 21st.
