Christmas Crazy Freebie

This is day 7 and the last Day of Christmas Crazy over at Bugaboo.  The Freebie Friday image is the picture inspiration for today's challenge.


  I used some DP that has been in my stash for ages. I am not sure where it is from- it is not marked. I colored the freebie image with Copics and highlighted it with Wink of Stella.

  A fun week of challenges- I enjoy doing this each year when I get the time!

Christmas Crazy- Color Challenge

Day 6 of Christmas Crazy is a Color challenge.


 I decided to use Washi from my stash and the Bugaboo Christmas Moose Ornament image.  I printed the image and cut it out with a border on the Scan n Cut. I colored with Copics, I added the pinks and the blues in on the ornaments. The sentiment is by Northwoods Rubber Stamps.  If I make anymore of these, I will make a sentiment Merry Christmoose : )

Christmas Crazy-Bingo

Bugaboo's Christmas Crazy Day 4 is a Bingo challenge. I had fun making some tags for the few gifts I am buying (my kids want money).....



 I used the center row horizontally. Traditional Christmas colors, Free, Bugaboo image.

I colored the images with Zig Brushes- getting used to a new feel for coloring : )  I highlighted a few areas with Copics. The images were trimmed with the Scan N Cut and glued onto the tags. The tag die was purchased on Ebay. The ribbon is from my stash.

It's time for Tuesday Throwdown's posting- our sponsor for this challenge is My Grafico. Today, we are creating a Christmas Scene.

The Cross stitched die is inked up with Autique Paper Distress ink. I added a sentiment is by Unity. The DP is unmarked. The ric rak is Ranger/TH.

Christmas Teddy

The 2nd Bugaboo challenge for the Christmas Crazy challenge this week is a Sketch challenge.


 I love this sweet image. I colored the image with Copics and added liquid applique to the hat and ball at end of hat. I sprinkled glitter over the liquid applique while it was wet- it is hard to see in the picture. The DP is Basic Grey from eons ago. The cardstock is SU Cherry Cobbler I used a corner rounder, and scored the cardstock in the opposite direction of the stripes in the DP. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo.

Merry and Bright

Over at Bugaboo, there is a week long Christmas card challenge, and I love their images so had to join in. Plus, it won't hurt to have a few more cards made!



 The first challenge theme is Merry and Bright. I had this Christmas DP out from the Gift Card I made last week, so used it again. The image is the Angel Girl Sitter, I cut the image out with the Scan N Cut with a .04 border. I colored with Copics. The hat and ball have puffy 'liquid applique' applied and died. The sequins match the pink dots in the border DP, and are from the Target $1.00 spot.  The sentiment is SU.

CYS- Gift Holder

For our monthly Challenge Your Stash aka CYS post, Vicki challenged us to make a gift holder.


 I bought a few fun templates from the Silhouette store, then came across THIS fun idea from Jennifer McGuire's Blog. It is different from anything I have seen or tried, so had to give it a go!
I used a digi stamp from Sweet n Sassy-Cocoa : ) 


 How fun is that.....!   It is easy and quick to put together.  Find OLD as dirt DP...yep!  Use it on the bottom of the card. 
 Next, die cut an opening in the top of the card- I do not have the dies used in the above tutorial, so used one I did have.....


 Before you cut, make sure your die is where you want it. Place the edge of the cutting plate where you want the cut to end.....  there you go!



 Here is the fun peek a boo window after the die cut.  I scored the line at the base of the die cut.

Add some double sided tape to the back of the cardstock- make sure gift card has tape fairly close to keep it from flopping all over : ) 


 Although these pictures are mine, the idea came from the tutorial posted above : )

The CYS group can be located here.  List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space for this challenge...!!! Even those in the 'get rid of' pile....... HERE is a link to all of the November gift Holders the group members posted for this challenge.

Christmas Gift Tag

I had a bit of time in the craft room- finally!  I decided to check the Catch the Bug iapiration for the day, and used the  SCS technique challenge- watercolor impression to create!



I did not follow the tutorial on SCS exactly.... I used regular cardstock instead of watercolor paper.  I applied Distress ink and then spritzed a stencil, placed it wet side down onto the cardstock.  It makes a pattern in the ink as it lifts some of the color.

 I had to use this fun peeking reindeer from Bugaboo- I just love the last release- so many darling images!!!

 The to/From stamp is from Inkadinkado.

I had so much fun today- I bought a Scan and Cut and it has been cutting out all of my images today- I absolutely LOVE it!!!
