Christmas Card....3-D type!

I didn't get to load this before Christmas, been sick all through the holidays, had that nasty virus that's been going around Washington, and let me tell you, it's nasty! Anyway, starting to feel a little better, so came to load this up, and make some adjustments on my blog! I made this an easel card, and also gave it the 3-D effect, by standing the trees and adding that little gift made of paper down front! Made the lace around image, and the fence with my MS punches. The trees are a stamp, and the image is from Rick Dennis, he does amazing images (digi), they are simply incredible, such detail! They are just yummy! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek!

Sketch challenge!

This was made using the sketch at Crazy 4 Challenges! What a fun sketch it is too! I found this image while blog hopping looking for some new digi sites, isn't he wonderful! The artist's name is Rick Dennis, and he does the most amazing characters! I have a snowman too that I purchased, cannot wait to use him! And this BG paper looks like it was made to go with the colors I used on him! My distress inks were perfect for the coloring of him! Anyway, punched out lots of snowflakes using matching patterned papers...........wanted this to be very whimsical! I distressed the papers, added two different ribbons, and just had fun with this one! Thanks for stoppin' by! Teresa

Anything but a Card!

This is for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings challenge.........anything but a card challenge! So I made this little Christmas Purse! Was a fun little project to do! Added some punched snowflakes, a circle journal, and of course some little black ribbon! Thanks for stoppin'a and takin'a peek! Teresa

Patchwork Magnolia!

I used Tim Holtz calender paper to make my patchwork background! I also used strips of same papers to make the botom of card have the patchwork feel also! I distressed all the papers. I added some pretty little "balls" around picture, and also added a Prima vine! I tried to make a "different" type card, so I made a wider but shorter base, for the base of the card! I like how it turned out! I also colored her very lightly with my distress inks, it's a much softer feel, which I think is pretty! I used circle journaling and highlighted it with glitter! I added a pretty little Pearl flourish to upper left corner! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa

Dorothy with her "new" Reindeer horns!

Well...............Dorothy and I went shopping yesterday, and as soon as I saw these antlers, well...............they looked perfect! She cannot get them off, they fit so well with the velcro under her chin, they were perfect! I had fun doing this lo, don't do that many any more, so this was fun to do! I took alot of the color out of the pic, and just left color on her face and antlers. Sorry.....that gold thing you see in middle of picture is a candle, that's what I was trying to erase a little! Added a ton of goodies on this, layered lots of distressed papers, made the lace around perimeter with my MS punch, and the snowflakes are also an MS punch! Added a few Prima goodies, and here it is! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek at Dorothy! Teresa

Tri-fold...Tiddly Inks!

I made this tri-fold card for the Tiddly Inks challenge and Crafty Catz! I did not have a Christmas image, so I took my "Batty For You", and removed her bat, and colored her as if she were an "Elf"! Used my distress inks to color her also! I'm pretty happy with the results! I really distressed the papers, added a really pretty lace around bottom, added several layered snowflakes that I made with my new punch! I used a mixture of papers, that added the Christmas touch also! I also added several of my "circle" journaling's that have Christmas sayings on them! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek! Teresa

Easel Card for Magnolia Challenges!

I tried to get some decent pictures today, but the weather was so bad, this is the best I could get~ so I included three pictures, and hopefully you will be able to see it all with the help of all of them! The colors are "white and green (Just Magnolia)", and I also used the sketch (Magnolia Down Under), which was pretty awesome ! I made the lace out of paper; colored images with distress inks, and I also used another stamp for the trees! I tried to make this 3-D by propping up the trees and little "angel"! Thanks so much for stoppin by and takin' a peek! Teresa

Magnolia Challenges!!

This is for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge.......and also Just Magnolia Challenge!! I love this new paper line from Fancy Pants, the colors are awesome! I love any kind of brown, and even though I'm not a big fan of blue, these colors are pretty cool together!! I colored her in my distress inks, and used my nestibbles for her frame! I love the lace, really adds the shabby feel, and so does the disressing of the papers! I love to age things, so the shabby challenge is so much fun for me! I also really liked the sketch at Just Magnolia, was fun to create! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa

Challenge at WaltzingMouse (card #2)!

I have already entered one card, but decided to do one more and add a "twist" to the sketch! It had three circles, so I changed it up, used my stamps, and added one design with a circle, one with another design, and the words are stamps, which add another one of the three elements! I really distressed the papers, punched out flowers, and had a ton of fun making this! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa
