Christmas Greetings

This weeks AHSC was super fun and and easy to adapt for my card.  This week we are working on sketch number 34.  Here is the sketch:

The card image and bench came from All That Scraps or C.c. designs.  I used Prismacolors and Gamesol to color the image.  I used echo Park paper; however, I could not find the line.  The sentiment came from a stampin up set.  I cut the black snowflake with a cricut cartridge to help ground the image.  The puffy part on the image is appliqué from CTMH.  

Have a scrap happy day folks!  Come join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, we would love to see ya!  


Sugar and Spice

I loosly based my card this week on the AHSC #33 sketch.  Here is the sketch:

I used Digi images from Kris at Imagine That!  I am honoured to have been asked to be on her design team beginning in January.  I was fortunate to enter her challenge last month and got these cute little gingerbread people.  They are so stinking cute.  So with these images I wanted to create a card that also was based on the sketch.  

I dug out the prismacolors and used gamsol to to blend the image but they are the pre copic blending of the world....lol. Old school is sometimes better!  I used liquid appliqué from CTMH to add "icing". The google eyes were added because my darling daughter said they made them crazy...teehee.  I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the tray and ran it through the Big Shot with the fan folder from Stampin Up.  The banner was created by printing off the sentiment and folding the edges to create a banner.  

Last but not least the background was created with distress dots stamp from stampin up, which I inked with Versamark and used sparkly embossing powder.  I wiped the holiday red from CTMH with a baby wipe.  The patterned paper came from CTMH -holiday 2013.  I really enjoyed making this card as it reminded me to use some supplies I have had a very long time...lol 
Happy scrapping y'all

PEACE on Earth AHSC #32

Today's sketch from Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge I tipped sideways.  Somedays I just can't get my brain to see things the way they should...lol

I love the flexibility of using theses sketches and applying them to already wonderful stamps.  The hippie chick comes from All that Scraps!  I love digital stamps and I have filled Christine for a few years. Amy R creates cool sentiments from her shoppe too....just sayin:).  

I used a piece of chipboard to create the sentiment and covered it with paper that looked like jeans.  I used all scraps to get some used (ask Melanie about the mount I am trying to work through...lol). I coloured her with Sharpies and promarkers (hair was completed with promarkers).  I had a gellieroller pen for her boots and used Stickles for her shirt.  

I just used a spellbinder to mimic the earth and stamped Happy Holidays inside.  I really love the look of a card when it is finished inside.  

Like my hippie chick. I sure hope you have amazing holidays and humanity can find some Peace on Earth.
