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!

I used the Coffee Blanket set and the Caffeine set from Rubbernecker stamps to create this project.  Each set has so many great coffee themed stamps.  the image was colored with copic markers.  I wet embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder.

Trick or Treat

 This month at Crafty Gals Corner, use Halloween colors on your project.

I used Kawaii Halloween Pal Witchelly from Stamper's Delights on my project.  She comes with the broom, cauldron and sentiment as well.  The bubbles in the cauldron got some clear Wink of Stella and the broom got some gold.  I used the stars from the die as an added embellishment to finish of this project.
