Sand and Sea

 Welcome back to the new challenge at Creative Knockouts.  Our theme this week is super easy as it is anything goes.


I used Sand Dune Silhouettes from Artsystamper.  I printed the silhouette on some sandy brown paper and cut out the top edge to give some perspective.  I added some paper from the Bo Bunny Popsicle collection for the sea and then some sky.  I popped up one of the cloud dies, the image and the sentiment to give the card some dimension.

Snow Fun

This month at Crafty Gals Corner, our challenge is Snow Much Fun!  We want to see your winter fun.  We don't get any snow where I live, which is fine with me!  Winter stamps and images are about as close as I want to get!  We lived in the snow and cold for a long time.  I really don't enjoy it.

I used Having Fun from Crafty Sentiments Designs for my project.  It was colored with Copic markers and some silver Wink of Stella on the bucket.  The word "snow" was die cut from glitter paper and is a bit textured like snow!

Dear Santa

 This week at Creative Knockouts we have our final challenge of 2020!  The theme is Anything Goes.


I used Stack from Sheepski Designs for my project.  The image was colored with Copic markers.  I love using non-traditional colors for Christmas cards and this image was the perfect chance. With a background paper from A Lumberjack Christmas by Echo Park available digitally on Snap Click Supply, my black and red Christmas card took shape.

Merry Christmas

 This month our challenge at Crafty Gals Corner is 'Tis the Season.  I can't wait to see what that means to you.


I used My Christmas Snowball from The Paper Shelter.  The background paper comes with the image so I took my color palette from the paper.  The image was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.

Winter Wonderland

 This week at Creative Knockouts, our challenge is Winter Wonderland.  I was able to choose an image from my  stash to work with this week.  I was on the Meljen's Designs team for a long time and decided to pull out one of those images to work with.  Sadly, the shop is closed now, but I still love her images.


This is Marshmallow Snowman from Meljen's Designs.  I just love that smile!  He was colored with Copics and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.
