Studio L3 challenge-CCC

Well, here's my take on this technique for this week's challenge.  It looks pretty good for never having done this before. I must have had a good vibe today, cause I didn't have to make three before getting one good one! I was careful with my mask as not move it around at all! Which is a sizzix yellow die that I used for the image. The blue ink is from Stampin Up!(have no blue distress ink) I know, shame on me! I did use black soot at the bottom of the tag, along with the sentiment. I used a glue pen around all the edges to adhere the silver glitter. I'll attach this to someone's gift this Christmas!

Drunken Stampers Challenge Entry Halloween

Here is my entry for the Halloween Drunken Stampers challenge this week. The stamp is from Stampin Up! the set is so cute, they remind me of the Campbells soup kids. I colored her in with colored pencils, then used a blender pen. I added black glitter to her shoes. I made 4 of these, so I also made this little box for them. The letters are from sizzix die. I distressed it all some, and the background paper is from Creative Memories. Can't wait to take my little guy trick or treating in a few days!

CAARDVARKS inside and out entry

I decided to join in on the decorate your card inside and out challenge over at the caardvarks blog! I went with a Christmas theme again using this cool velvet paper! It is die cut with the tattered florals die, and the leaves are from quickutz. I love this paper! Inside I used another sizzix strip die, and also used the extra pieces on the sides to make a frame. The sentiment I printed onto thick vellum made for inkjet printers. I will definately have to get more colors of this velvet paper! And another note, this card is unlike me, because I didn't use any stamps!! I did not have the proper sentiment stamp for this card!! Sometimes you just have to go outside the stamp!

L3 Challenge-Dabber Resist

Here is my entry for this weeks challenge at the l3 blog!
I used cranberry paint dabber on my new stampin up! background stamp. I also used forrest moss, and vintage photo distress ink. Black soot ink was used on the edge to make it stand out a bit. The ribbon came from my unused sewing supplies, it's a fancy trim of some sort, but looks great with my vintage look card! I also used glossy accents on the 25 to add some dimension. I think this one will go to my Mom since she likes the vintage victorian look!

Wonderful use for stickers!

These are just the most fun stickers I've ever used! I love that they give a stained glass effect. I used gel roller pens to color these in. On the snowmen, I put glossy accents on top to give them an enameled look. I also used a glue pen, and fine glitter for the background on one. There are tons of different styles of these stickers, and each sheet is less than $2.00! The snowmen are Elizabeth Craft Design stickers, and the flowers are Sticker King(or tattoo king). For anyone who hasn't tried these, the effects are amazing! And who doesn't like coloring?!

Gift Card Holder

I saw a video on youtube for making these gift card holders. They were made by a Stampin Up! demonstrator. So, of course I had to try it! And they are really easy and quick! There are two pockets on the inside, one for the gift card, and one for a note card. The pockets are made from an envelope cut in half! Here is a link for anyone wanting the instuctions!
