Happy Blogaversary!

This week at the Crafty Gals Corner we are celebrating our third blogaversary.  How do we celebrate?  Well with a blog hop of course!  We have ten amazing sponsors for this challenge so there are a lot of prizes to be won.  The theme is anything goes so it is really easy to play along.

This sweet Snow Penguin is from Kitty Bee Designs.  I know Christmas is over, but a co-worker requested a Christmas card using this image when she saw me coloring it at work.  So he got to go to someone special.  He was colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment is a Silhouette cut file that I filled and printed rather than cut.  The snowball is actually a puff from EK Success that is intended to be used for chalking.  It made the perfect snowball embellishment!

Jingle Bell

This week at Crafty Sentiments Designs we would like for you to use snowflakes on your project.

I used Snowman Bell for my project this week.  This is one of the digi stamps on offer at Crafty Sentiments.  The image was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  His bell has a little silver Wink of Stella for some shimmer and shine.  The hat and scarf were cut from glitter paper for some extra sparkle! I used the Spellbinders November small die kit of the month.  You can find out about the subscription kits here.

You have a chance to win some great Crafty Sentiments prizes.  You don't have to use a Crafty Sentiments product to win, but if you do, you could win even more!

Merry and Bright

Welcome back to the last Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post of the year.  We will be taking a short break for the holidays, and be back with more inspiration in the new year.

I used Mr. Stix for my project today.  He is such a sweet snowman!  The sentiment is Merry & Bright.  I kept this one kind of simple. He was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut by hand.  A few pearls, some lace, and May Arts velvet ribbon and this card was done!

Our challenges will begin again in the new year so keep watch for the next one.

Merry Christmoose!

Can you believe we have already finished this week?!  And since it is Friday, it is time for my feature over on the Rubbernecker Stamps blog and I chose this stamp for my project

This is Moose With Lights and he has been colored with Copic Markers.  I cut him out using a stitched rectangle frame like this one in the shop.  He also has a matching die for quick and easy fussy cutting.  The lights were colored with Spica pens for some great sparkle.  

Our challenges will start up again after the holidays.  Be sure to check back to see what theme we start the year with.

Winter Wonderland

This week at Creative Knockouts, we want to see your winter wonderland projects.  So think cool thoughts and get creating!

I used Christmas Fairy from Fabrika Fantasy Stamps for my project.  I colored her in some icy cool colors and cut her out using the Silhouette.  She has some clear Wink of Stella on her wings and her hair.  I used silver Wink of Stella for her wand.  She is so shimmery and sparkly in real life.  I cut the snowflakes using white glitter paper and the flower is glittered as well!  I am sure I will be finding flakes of glitter on my face for days! =P  The sentiment is from Endless Creations and Everyday Cards

Snowy Friends

It is time for a new challenge at Li'l Patch of Crafty Friends.  Our challenge is always anything goes, so why not play along.

I used Snowman Friends from Polkadoodles for my project.  I wanted a more non-traditional color scheme and found this paper from the My Mind's Eye Holly collection.  It was exactly what I was looking for.  I pulled my colors for the image from the paper.  I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo.

You have a chance to win some awesome prizes from our fabulous sponsors.  Click the badges below to pop over and shop.

Sami's back after having her sweet little bundle of joy so it is time for a new release and a new challenge at Sami Stamps.  The new image is so sweet!

Isn't it super adorable?!  The challenge this week is a tough one!  Let's see your white on white projects.

I colored Little Holly Unicorn with Copic markers and used the Silhouette to cut it out.  The embossing folder is actually one that is a frame, and I never thought I would use it.  I got it in a pack with three others, but it was the perfect complement for this image.  I printed the sentiment on my computer.

You have a chance to win some Sami Stamps prizes for playing along.  Just be sure to use a Sami Stamps image to be eligible to win.
