Christmas Penguin

Happy Sunday friends!  I over on the Sasayaki Glitter Blog today with a little more Christmas inspiration using the sweet Christmas Penguin image which can be found here.  Here he is all colored up and on a tag ready to make someone's Christmas a little brighter -


Here's a little closer look.


I colored him up with Copic markers and popped him on to a cute die cut tag.  A little wreath, some Nuvo Drops and a die cut sentiment was all that this tag needed and it's one more tag done.  

Thanks so much for dropping by, pray your week is going well!

Aloha,
Brenda

Angel Leah

Good morning everyone!  I'm up for the post over on the Whimsie Doodles Blog.  I have a Christmas to share using an image that is definitely one of my favorites, Angel Leah.  She can be found under Winter Digital Stamps in the Whimsie Doodles store.

Here she is all colored up -


And here's a closer look at all the sparkle.


Going through my stash of paper I found this scrap that seemed to me to work perfectly with Leah.  I fussy cut her after doing a little Copic coloring and adding some tickles to her dress and wings.  This really went together fast thanks to the design paper scrap.

I want to remind you, you still have a couple more days to enter the November challenge at Whimsie Doodles, here's the link for your convenience.  Thanks for dropping by today!

Aloha,

Wow, it makes me a bit nervous to say this, but 19 more days till Christmas!  It really is my favorite time of year.  The challenge today has helped me prep for this wonderful celebration. This week's challenge is to create a tag or gift card holder.  

Here are my tags using several images from different stamp companies -

Blue Christmas



Hi friends!  I'm up on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today.  I'm sharing a card I created after pondering the wonderful December inspiration board above.  There are so many things I love about this board.  Blue is my favorite color and Christmas is my most favorite time of year, so that's where I started.

I decided to make a shaker card using some of the gorgeous Kennedy Grace sequin mixes.  For this card I used Chantilly Cream and Ocean Water which look as if they were taken right off the mood board.  If you look closely you can see the beautiful iridescence of the Chantilly Cream.  LOVE THEM!



I started by cutting the ornament shape from a speciality white cardstock called Stardust, 2 sheets of fun foam and a blue metallic cardstock.  I glued the fun foam together adhered that to card base made of the same Stardust cardstock.  I adhered the metallic ornament in place and added the Kennedy Grace sequins.  I am notorious for forgetting to put the acetate onto my shakers, but this time managed to remember to get that done.  I used tacky glue for adhering all the layers and was pleased with the bond I got.



After that shaker element was finished I added a little evergreen bough which had been dusted with clear rock candy distress glitter.  All that was left was to add the sentiment and a skinny twine bow with even more glisten.  Hopefully the recipient will enjoy all the sparkle and sheen this card shares.  


We would love for you to join us in using the Kennedy Grace mood board for inspiration and would love it even more if you would share your creation on FB or Instagram.  Thanks so much for popping in today.

Aloha,
Brenda

Sasayaki Glitter Release Day!

It's new release day over at Sasayaki Glitter!  Here's the link to the blog so you can see and the wonderful new images.  I'm sure you are going to be inspired by what the Sasayaki Glitter Girls have created, cuz I've already taken a peek at all the fabulousness (is that even a work?).  Here my card using Sasayaki Glitter's Christmas Chicken, I think he is going to make you smile -


I colored him up using Copic markers and fussy cut him to layer onto design paper.  The sentiment was computer generated using Princess Ivy font from DaFont.  I just though it was the perfect description of this very entertaining Chicken!

Please check out the blog here and head over to the Facebook page here to keep up with all the fun!  Thanks for popping in.

Aloha,

What is Your Favorite Animal?


It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to share your favorite.  Use your favorite animal on your creation and tell us why it's your favorite.


This week our sponsor is:

Here is my card, using one of my favorite animals,  the Bunny -




OK, I'm just going it say it, this is an impossible challenge. I love animals, all animals (well almost all animals). I guess for purposes of this challenge, I'm going to say bunnies. I love bunnies in real life and I love The Cat's Pajamas Bunny because he is always into something and he has such personality!  I had a white bunny, Thumper, when I was growing up.  I remember how soft and fuzzy he was.  He was a gift from a very special neighbor.


We would love for you to head back to the AYLI blog to link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the prize that's up for grabs and take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is going well!

Aloha,
