Bring on the flakes!!

Here we find ourselves in the second week of the Clear It Out Challenge.  Anything goes is the theme, so let 'er rip, but be sure there is a snowflake on your project!!

This week's entry is brought to you by Digi Darla Designs.  Isn't he just the cutest?!?!

He's called "dot in Winter."  I used my Tombow Art Markers for coloring, but used a piece of scrap patterned paper for his scarf.  The background cardstock is Tim Holtz Craft Core cardstock.  I embossed it with a snowflake folder, then sanded the raised  features.  I also used the Tim Holtz stack for the red too.  Stampin up "very merry" stamp and some bling and viola!!!

Please be sure to visit our super-terrific sponsors and get those snowflake entries in!!  One week left!

It's Chilly!

It's chilly here in Florida!  For those of us in the south......chilly means anything below 70!  We're in long sleeves, jackets and my kids are still complaining that they are cold!  But I Clear It Out Challenge Blogspot it's all about the snowflakes!  For this 2 week challenge anything goes in the theme department but be sure there is a snowflake somewhere on your piece!

I've chosen this super cute snowman for my project!  He's brought to you by QKR Stampede.  He's called "winter friends" and I do love this image!  I paper pieced most of him together.  The hat, scarf and mittens are cut from scrap patterned paper.  The remaining coloring was done with my Tombow Art Markers.  The bling is from my stash.  I used a snowflake embossing folder for the squares at the bottom.  Hope you enjoy him and go visit our sponsors for more great images!

and yet S'MORE cards!!

Here we are on week 2 of the Clear It Out Challenge Blogspot challenge.  The theme is "S'more" and the stash item is "brown & white."

Last week I made three cards, each representing one of the sponsors.  I made "s'more" cards!  So this week I followed the same pattern!

First is a card from a new sponsor StampArt by Kathryne.  I used my Tombow Art markers to color her in.  I used a bit of stickles and liquid pearls also.  Some Tim Holtz paper, some BG brads, a stamp here, a white paint pen there and here you go!!

Next card's image is brought to you by Lacy Sunshine.  Again using my Tombow art markers to color her.  Printed my sentiment on craft cardstock then ran it through the embosser.  Quick and Easy!

And last but certainly not least is an image from Bugaboo.  Using the Tombow Art markers, some liquid pearls, some felt Christmas trees and a snowflake embossing folder make this card super cute for the holidays!!

Thanks for checking us out and please take a moment to check out our sponsors as well!!

Unity {be inspired} challenge

I am entering this card in the Unity {be inspired} challenge.  I tried to use all the colors, but as you can see the greens are a little lacking.  I did add the green brads! :o)

I used my newly acquired Unity Stamp "Winter,"  I love this snowflake!

Let's make S'MORE cards!!

Welcome to November!!  This 2 week theme on Clear It Out Challenge is S'MORE!  The stash item is to use brown and white!

My take on the theme is not just one card, but "s'more" cards!  So here goes!  These cards are representing all three sponsors for this challenge.  Bugaboo Stamps, Lacy Sunshine and Stamp Art Design by Kathryne/Whimsy Stamps.

The first card uses a Bugaboo Stamp.  The house is paper pieced using scraps.  The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.  The next one uses Lacy Sunshine.  I used Tombow Art Markers to color her, scraps for the cardstock.  Some Club Scrap ribbon and Pink Paislee alphabet stickers in Chocolate.  And last but not least.......Stamp Art Design by Kathryne!  I used the Tombow Art Markers again, some stickles on the edges of the package.  Used Tim Holtz cardstock embossed with the swiss dot folder.  Ribbon from stash and viola!  

Hope you can join us for this two week challenge and please check out our sponsors!!  They are super awesome!!
