CASology Challenge - North

Hi there, blog friends ~ I've been nursing a 'Stye' (in my good eye) so this will be a quick post. I always enjoy playing along with CASology, so I hope my ice skating polar bear fits the bill for this week's cue ~

 That's what polar bears do in the north pole, right? Everything on this card is from MFT except for the snowflakes. I colored the bear with Copics and used Stickles on the icebergs for sparkle...the ice pond was created with a shadow die and shaded with distress inks.

Did you notice my new gorgeous 'backdrop'? My special thanks to Loll...I really love it!!!

Have a great weekend, everyone ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: MFT - Polar Bear Pals; WPlus9 - Iconic Christmas (snowflakes)
Dies: MFT - Polar Bear Pals,, Hit the Slopes, Oval Shadow, Icebergs
Misc: Copic Markers; Stickles - Star Dust; Tim Holtz -  Peacock Feathers

Fusion Card Challenge - Christmas Eve Ride

Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Fusion and this time our prompt is 'Christmas Eve Ride'

You expected a Christmas card, right? Sorry about that...I needed a card for my 12 yr old granddaughter, so I went with the sketch and created this card for her :) I colored MFT Bitty Bears with Copic markers and popped each one up on a snowy hill with a sky background...of course, the sentiment is perfect for her! 

Don't forget the best thing about the Fusion Card Challenge is that you can choose between the sketch and the inspiration photo, or both! My teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire you, so feel free to stop by the challenge blog and play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: MFT - Bitty Bears
Dies: MFT - Bitty Bears, Inside/Out Stitched Squares; Mama Elephant - Landscape Trio (snowy hills)
Misc: Copic Markers; MFT - Mini Cloud Stencil

CAS Christmas - December Challenge

Hi there blog friends ~ It's a new challenge over at CAS Christmas, and this month the theme is 'Stars'! I love the movement in this starry stamp, so I was happy to ink it up again and play along! 

I started by stenciling the cloudy sky, then die cut this NBUS Christmas Angel with white glitter cardstock. I stamped the stars and sentiment with Liquid Platinum EP and placed the panel on to an A2 card base.

So, that's it for me...head on over and check out all of the gorgeous cards Loll, Bonnie and their team created for this month's challenge ~

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: Uniko - Reach for the Stars; MFT - Hand Lettered Christmas (sentiment)
