Eureka challenge- add some bling

digi11104 Cat in Hatdigi11202(509) May the Gifts

I added some fun snowflake sequins and some gems for the bling on my card, along with the glitter.
I created a simple shaped card for this challenge, I just love this kitty, she looks so comfy, I imagine Santa came home after his busy night and just dropped his hat and coat on the floor and the kitty climbed right in the warm and cozy hat.

 Inside I placed the sentiment, such a nice one I think.  I used my SIL program to print and cut the images out and create the shadows for the outlines and the card itself.

Jeanie card

This is a new to me company, this was a free image they offered a while back, I'm so behind in sharing my projects.
I colored her with my pencils and blended with gamsol
I sprayed the card with shimmer mist.  The papers are all from CTMH.  This was a fun one to play with.

Congratulations on your new home

 I'm on vacation in Hilton Head this week, I did not get the time I thought I would to create my project so I did this on using my SIL program and the shapes and patterns I have in there.  I used our super cute owl, "colored" him in with some fun patterns and colors and placed him in a fun little tree house.
Isn't he cute?  I love the crazy stuff you can do with digital stamps.

Pretty Snowflakes

Help spread the word!

How pretty is this set?  My daughter is hooked on Frozen (what kid isn't these days)
She's always telling me she has ice powers and telling me she froze this and that and she promises to not freeze me, lol 
When I saw this set I immediately thought of her and had to get it.
I used my SIL program to layer the images and printed on one sheet for a quick CAS card.  Just adding pearls and gems with some twine to finish it off.

Eureka~vintage or distressed challenge

digi22801 Stained Glass Angel
digi22801 Stained Glass Angel

I took step by step photos for you this week, I started with colored pencils and colored the image, as you can see, a little messy, The reason for that was to keep the colors aged looking and hoping to give the look of highlights in glass.
 I then used my Gamsol to blend using a paper stump, I used a lot of liquid and blended in circles.
After it was dry I used my glitter gel pen to outline the angel.  Here you can see how you can't even see the "scribbles" anymore.
 I then used my TH distress paint in "Rock Candy" to paint a heavy coat on the image.
 After it dried I used my TH ink to add some light browns and olive green colors all over the image.

I then added a pretty bow using my 3 Girl Jam ribbons.
Now it's your turn, click the badge at the top to head over to the blog and see what the rest of the team has made.  If you want this image for yourself then click on the photo at the top of the post and go shop.

Great friends

Image of Harvest Bundle
This card turned out so cool, if I do say so myself!
The background is the orange blossom file from Miss Kate Cuttables, I have had this gorgeous swirl from Pinque Peacock for a while, just waiting for the perfect project to show case it.
It's made using the scrumptious ribbon.  I thought it simulated an orange pretty well and a flower at the same time.  The phrase is one of the new stamps by Craftin' Desert Divas.

Sweet kite

How great is this?  The papers are from CTMH, I used my SIL to cut the card base, clouds and print and cut the kite.  Meljen's offered this as a free image a few weeks ago.  Love his sweet face.

Fancy Mermaid and Flamingo

I had so much fun with these stamps, I pulled out one of my Close to my Heart paper packs I've been saving, and went crazy!
 I stamped her on the tan, on purple designer paper and on the snake skin type paper then cut out the pieces.  Her eyes I colored with a black gel pen and used my white gel pen for the stitching and high lights.
 I added lots of gems and pearls, I think she's fabulous!! I hope you agree.

For this fancy girl, I stamped her on the Raspberry paper then again on the plaid and cut just her wing from the plaid and stamped her on the white panel.  Her body and beak tip were cut from the raspberry paper.
 I cut rectangles from the designer paper and tied some twine around them for gifts and cut her bum a bit so it looked more like she was sitting on the gifts.  She's so fashionable I think.Mer0
