Stampalcious Monday Sketch Challenge!

It's time for another chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate over at the Totally Stampalcious Blog! This week we are haveing a SKETCH Challenge....check it out!

Here is my sample!

I hadn't played with our Road Hawg for a while and when I saw last weeks winner, Linda's, card I was inspired to pull him out!

The leather strap is 'extra' strapping from my DH's shaving kit. He wanted them cut off and I knew I could use them on a card!!! It was a win-win situation!! Lol!

If you'd like to play along, make sure you post your creation using Mr. Linky on the Totally Stampalicious Blog and if you upload to SCS use Key word TSMONDAY8!

Crazy 4 Punches - Holiday Happiness!

What a FANTASTIC challenge Ms. Frances Byrne has come up with for all of us Crazy Gals! This week we are using our punches...border punches, hole punches, scallops, circles, squares...the sky's the limit!!!

Here is my Punch Happy creation!

There is a Grand Total of TEN punches used on this card!! Definitely not a difficult challenge for me as I use my punches ALL the time!! They are such a great way to add a little 'punch' to your card!!! HAHAHAHA! I'm hilarious! (rolling eyes at myself now!)

That sweet little elf is from CTMH - Merry Pursuits. I used Garden Green and Not quite Navy cardstock...not sure whose DP that is but it's shiny and pretty!!

I absolutely LOVE the sketch that our clever hostess, Jennifer Meyer came up with for the OCC Challenge this week! I'm definitely going to be using this one again!! Check it out!!

Now here is my version of the sketch! I just got the new Ornament punch from SU! and I couldn't wait to use it!!

The sentiment is from a CTMH set. I think I used a total of EIGHT different punches on this card from THREE different companies!! I like to consider myself an 'equal opportunity' crafter!! Lol!

Crazy 4 Acetate!

The super talented Frances Byrne has challenged us to create a card or project using acetate! Head on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog where you'll find all kinds of ideas for creating with acetate as well as AMAZING samples from the DT!

Now I have to admit that the acetate made ME crazy more so than me being crazy for first!! Once I played with it for a while though, I got the hang of working with it! It was totally worth it as the results can be quite stunning...and unique!!

I made a 'Sour Cream Container' to go along with my card!

Here is a photo of just the card...apparently you can get a thicker acetate that is better for card bases...this is just regular stuff that bends really easy!!!

The image is from Inkadinkado. I used Cool Carribbean ink and cardstock and the ribbon is from Wal-Mart. I stamped the sentiment on a white piece of CS for the inside of the card and used snow flourishes (Inkadinkado) on the borders.

Thanks so much for stoppin' by and be sure to play along and share your creation with us on the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog! If you upload to SCS or any other on-line forum use Keyword C4C11!

Create a post card or incorporate the post card layout into your theme!

I was inspired to create an actual Post card...and although you can't see it...the back of this has the appropriate lines and're just gonna have to trust me!! Lol!

This adorable image is from High Hopes Stamps! Aren't they adorable!!! The Canada Postage is from SU! The image is colored with prismas and oil...I thought I chould keep it 'flat' and fairly simple like a real post card!

MTSC47 - Dapper Dawg!

Mercy has come up with another fabulous sketch this week HERE on her blog!

I had so much fun dressing up our Rockin' Frawg, I decided to try it with Hawt Dawg as well! You can find both of these fun characters at Totally Stampalicious!!

The Top Hat is from the same CTMH Snowman set that I used on the Frawg. I used a Momento pen to draw on his fancy schmancy Dinner Jacket and then colored it with a copic, highlighting with the blender pen! The Bow Tie I drew by hand and then cut out.

I think he makes a great Masculine Christmas card!!!

OCC Inspirational Snowman Family!

Welcome to another fun challenge from Our Creative Corner! Our wonderful hostess and Blog owner, Jennifer Meyer has found this super cool picture to inspire us!

I decided to go with the 'obvious' Snowman theme!! It gave me the chance to play with our new Snowman set from Totally Stampalicious!! Do you notice the family resemblance?! It may have to do with the fact that they are all ONE STAMP!!! I just dressed them up and cropped them down to make them look different!!
