Happy Holidays everyone. I hope you are getting a chance to spend some quality time with your loved ones. I know I have been fortunate enough to spend time with Jeff and the kids as well as some extended family.

                         This week over at Totally Stampalicious Monday it is….SPARKLE! Add some sparkle to your creation...glitter, bling...whatever your sparkling heart desires!

This week I have used the Winterbird Snowman set.

I stamped my image onto Gina K paper with Tuxedo Black, Memento Ink and then I colored him up using my Copics. When I was all done coloring the image I used my Quickie Glue Pen and added some Glitter Ritz. I used some paper from an old Be Merry Pack from My Mind's Eye. I also used a Snow Marker to color in areas of the snow and snowballs and I also added Glitter Ritz to the snow and then I used my heat tool to puff it up. I just love the effect it had.

I used the sketch from Freshly MadeSketches and got my color inspiration from the JUGS Challenge.


Be sure to head on over to see what the girls have for eye candy over at Totally Stampalicious Blog and join us in this fun Sparkle challenge.

And don't forget about the  Dessert Promotion that is on now @  Totally Stampalicious 

Best Wishes to you all,

Eat, Drink and be Merry!!!

Hey there, thanks a bunch for stopping by. This week over at Totally Stampalicious the challenge is Eat, Drink or be Merry! We want to see anything top do with eating or drinking on your project (be it a card, a layout or even a 3D item).

I once again used the Poppi Penguin set….that Hot Cocoa just gives me the warm and fuzzies every time I ink it up J

I kept the design nice and simple (and I paired it up with a couple of other  stamp sets). And that super soft velvet ribbon is from Chapter's…hehe (I kind of have an addiction for that store as well). But I went ahead and colored Poppi using my Copics.

Be sure to head on over to the Totally Stampalicious Blog (and my fellow design Team Members' Blogs) for our last challenge of the Year and enter your project that features food, drink or merriment.

Head on over to the Totally Stampalicious Store for this wonderful promotion that is on now:

A Delightful Snowman...

Hi there, just a super quick post today J  I'm still in need of Christmas Cards for our friends and family and I got uber inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I even decided to watercolor using Tim Holtz Distress Inks- they are so nice to work with. Anyways, I just kept it super clean and simple. I started off by cutting out the main panel using a Tim Holtz die and my Big Shot. Then I stamped the most delightful snowman from Stampin Up using Black Stazon and added a bit of color with my Aqua Painter and inks. Then I just layered him up and added the snowflake (also a die cut), added a bit of ribbon to the button and stuck them together using sticky dots.

Hope you like it and wish you a wonderful Holiday Season,
