Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!  I hope you and yours have a wonderful Holiday!

Today begins a new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks and this week we have a sketch for you to try out!  

Since it is Christmas I am sharing with you one final Christmas card.

I inked and embossed my image with white embossing powder then cut him out using a Spellbinders die.  The rest was just following the sketch:

And here is the sketch for you to play along!

So after all the presents are open, dinner is done and the family is relaxing, why not play along!  Head over to 4 Crafty Chicks and enter your project today!

Merry Christmas!

Good morning!  It's Thursday so that means another new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!  Tamie is the hostess this week and she is wanting us to use charms on our projects.

I  have finally finished all of my Christmas Cards and this is one of the many I did for some of my "primitive" female friends.  I embossed the tree with white powder on kraft card then added a bow with a little diamond "charm" they can remove and add to a necklace or bracelet.  Pretty simple but I really love this one!

So be sure to head over to 4 Crafty Chicks and enter your "Charmed" project today!

See you soon!

One layer cards at 4 Crafty Chicks

Good morning friends!  Can you believe it is the middle of December already?!?  Where did this year go? Have you finished all of your Christmas shopping?

Today at 4 Crafty Chicks I get to be hostess and I have decided since I am working on Christmas Cards to have a one layer challenge!

For my card I used these adorable snowmen.  I can't remember where I got them or what the name is but I just love this stamp!
I colored them with watercolor pencils and added some white lace Stickles for the snow effect.  It was a pretty quick and simple card but will be perfect for mailing!

So what are you waiting for?  Head on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and enter your one layer card today!

See you soon!

Happy Feet!

Good morning!  Happy Birthday to my baby brother!!!  Well, I guess at 39 he is not really a baby anymore!  

Today Leanne is our hostess over at 4 Crafty  Chicks and she wants to see some Animals!  This one was a little hard for me as I don't do many cards with animals, but during that shopping trip a few weeks ago I came across this adorable little penguin stamp and I just could not resist him!

I stamped him twice.  The first one I cut out using a Spellbinders die and the second I used the matching die cut.  I colored both images and then popped the die cut image up with pop dots. I embossed the blue layer with my snowflake embossing folder and added some ribbon.  Another quick, simple Christmas card done!

So my "first" animal card is complete!  I have a feeling this little guy will be in the mail box soon to someone very special!

So head over to 4 Crafty Chicks and show us your Animal card today!

See you soon!
