Holly Jolly Christmas

Hi everyone,

For the next few weeks at Holly Jolly we are showcasing images from our sponsors.  

For my first project I have created a card using a Lacy Sunshine image called "Tinsel Tangle" and the image has been coloured in with Copic Markers.






This is such a cute little image and I love the sentiment "Don't Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle".

It can get a busy at Christmas so I think the sentiment is perfect.

When I get the internet up and running again at home, hopefully this week, I will add the markers and a closer peak at the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lacy Sunshine Challenge - #48 Holiday Joy

A Gift for Christmas

Hello & I hope that you are well!

Here in Sydney we have been experiencing some hot weather with storms in the afternoon. This humid weather has created some problems like getting home on Wednesday and finding that the telephone and internet are out.  

It is now Sunday and still not working maybe it will be back up and running by Wednesday of this week when the technician gets to home.  In the meantime it is lucky that Mum and Dad are not far away so I can do some posting.

But anyway let me tell you what we are doing at Come and Get It for the next few weeks.

At Come And Get It for the next few weeks we are creating Christmas Projects and Cards using our Sponsor's images.

So for my first project I have used a sweet image from Bugaboo called "Christmas Mouse Ornament" and cut the image out with a die and layered it on some Silver Glimmer Paper.

I created a cover for a bottle wine using some Bo Bunny paper and also where the join is on the back of the bottle I have added some Snowflakes by using the Martha Stewart "Winter Snow" Punch - (I will add photos soon).

The cover can be slipped off and reused of placed on the Christmas Table.  

Here is my little project:





Supplies:
Stamp: Bugaboo "Christmas Mouse- Ornament", Festive of Trees Stamp Set
Card: Sahara Sand
Ink: Sahara Sand, Mellow Moss
Accessories: Nestabilities "Beaded Ovals" Die, SU Ovals Collection Die, Crumb Cake Scalloped Trulle Ribbon (retired), Frosted Finishes Embellishments, Martha Stewart "Winter Snow" Punch, Real Red Satin Ribbon (retired), Bo Bunny Elf Magic 2013 Paper #14901917, Xpress It Blending Cardstock, Dimensionals, Rhinestones, Silver Glimmer Paper


The little mouse has been coloured in with Copic Markers and the sentiment reads "A Merry Little Wish..." and is from the Festival of Trees Stamp Set.

The copic colours used are;

Body and Ears: C5, 3, 2,1,0, 00, R0000, 30, 00
Hat: R0000, 29, 27, 24

CCC - Embossing

Hello – just a quick post to let you know about our new challenge over at Crafty Creations.

 

For the next two weeks our theme is:

 

Embossing

 

and we are sponsored by Beccy’s Place and I have used a new image called Dance Lessons. It is way too cute!

 

The lovely paper I used was given to me by a friend a few weeks ago and it seem perfect for this image. I have used both sides of the paper on the card.  Blackberry Bliss is a very deep colour but I think helped lift the darker flowers in the paper.

 

Here is my card:

Supplies:

Stamp: Beccy’s Place “Dance Lessons”, Lilli of the Valley “Dreamy Days Circular Sentiments”

I added some Crumb Cake ink with a dauber to the embossing to make it stand out on the Crumb Cake cardstock.  Just a little bit of bling today just in the middle of the flower on the headband and two on the embossing scallops.

 

 

Here is a closer look:
