Thankful

 This month at Crafty Gals Corner our theme is thankful.  


This is Teddy 1 from Morgan's ArtWorld.  I colored the image with Copic markers and used a Queen & Co die to cut it out.  I cut out a matching die panel and cut it diagonally to offset behind the image for a pop of color.  The embellishments are wooden but were covered with some adhesive and then foiled with some Queen & Co fun foil.  It was a little fiddly, but SO worth it!  The sentiment is from My Favorite things from the Birdie Brown Greetings Galore set.

Winter Wishes

 This week at Creative Knockouts our challenge is Anything Goes.

This adorable image is Huddle from SheepSki Designs.  I decided to try my hand at making a slimline card since it is the newest trend  I thought this group of penguins would be the perfect image for my first try.  I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out using the Silhouette Cameo.  I used a little silver Wink of Stella on the sunglasses.  The background paper is from Echo Park Winter Wishes that is available digitally on Snap Click Supply.  My favorite part of this card is the sentiment.  It was made using a manual Dymo label maker.  You know the ones with the dial and the squeeze handle?  It had the exact look I wanted!  If you have one laying around but don't have any tape, you can also use it to emboss the letters on paper.  Just cut a strip the right size and feed it into the label maker!

Wings or Fur?

 This week at Creative Knockouts, the challenge is Wings & Things or Furry Friends.  What will you choose?


This is Air Fairy from our sponsor Fabrika Fantasy.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  Her wings have clear Wink of Stella because a fairy's wings should definitely sparkle!  I cut some clouds from some glitter cardstock and the die from some shimmer paper to add tons of sparkle and shine.
