Mitten & Warm Wishes

Happy Sunday, all! =) Here is a card that I made using some fun dies from Paper Smooches.


This is a fun one to make and without stamping! =)


The mittens are cut using the Mitten Die. I don't have a proper holiday themed paper, but imagine the possibilities!


The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee's C'est La Vie 6x6 paper pad and the sentiment is cut using the Warm Wishes Die.

That's all from me. For more inspirations using stamps and dies from Paper Smooches, please visit the Paper Smooches Blog! =)

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) This Sketch #200

Hello, all! =) A new sketch is up over on CAS(E) This Sketch! First is this week's sketch.


It's our 200th sketch! Chrissy is offering a special prize for the winner of this week's sketch and it's a $25 gift certificate to the craft store of YOUR choice! How awesome is that! Here is my take on the sketch.



I flipped the sketch upside down and added a little personal touch. =)


I die cut the lovely bear from Essentials by Ellen's All Inside die set first then inked him with Antique Linen Distress Ink on the die cut piece then colored the image with Copic markers. The presents are from the Christmas Scribbles set and they are also colored using the same no-line coloring technique then die cut using the matching dies.


The patterned paper is from Chickaniddy's Jolly Good 6x6 Paper Pad and is cut using the Poinsettia & Pine die set. The sentiment is included in the Christmas Scribbles set.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over on the CAS(E) This Sketch! =)

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Cyber Monday, my friends! =) Purple Onion Designs' Holiday Sales starts today!

Christmas Bug

Hi all! =) Here is my card for this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge over on the Stamping Bella Blog.


This is a Inspiration Challenge week and here is this week's inspiration photo.


Well, that's a pretty fabulously decorated tree and I definitely used it as my inspiration to color a pink tree! =)


I stamped the Christmas Bug on the Rustic White card base and colored the image with Copic markers.


The sentiment comes with the Christmas Bug and I also added Glossy Accents to all the lights and ornaments for a little texture.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members and participants created for this week's challenge and see all the challenge details over on the Stamping Bella Blog! =)
