Creative Knockouts #481 - Winter Wonderland

Hello crafty friends!

Let is snow, let it snow, let it snow! It's been a snowy week here on the prairies (well duh, it is December now! haha). I've been in full on Christmas Card mode this month....and today's card is super adorable!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #480. 

Our theme this week is "Anything Goes” and our sponsor is the amazing “Lee Holland”. I chose to work with a stamp set called "Dragon Pulling Sledge".

Here is what I created:





I picked up some brand new metallic watercolors, so I decided to use them on my card this week. I did a spray with a White Gloss Spray - it added a subtle effect.

 
 

To emulate some snow, I used a bit of crackle paste.





My sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

I hope you enjoy this card!  I'm having fun trying different techniques.

Can't wait to see what you all create!  Good luck at the challenge!

Creative Knockouts #479 - Anything Goes

Hello crafty friends!

Well, winter has officially arrived here in the prairies....so it's time for some snow fun!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #479. 

Our theme this week is "Anything Goes” and our sponsor is the amazing “SheepSki Designs”. I chose to work with a stamp set called "Winter Deer Image No 195"

Here is what I created:


I haven't does a "distressed' card in a long, long time!  I started by printing the digial image out on white cardstock, then covered it with Versamark.  I sprinkled on the Distress Frosted Crystal Embossing powder and heat set (I'm still learning - so bare with me! haha)


I did add a few layers of Speckled Egg and Tattered Rose here and there for some color.  Then I added some Taupe ink to age the papers.


I grabbed some vintage book paper and distressed with tearing, ink and some White Gloss Spray.


Finally, I stamped my sentiment and some "snow" using the Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink!




I hope you enjoy this card!  I had tons of fun creating it - it felt good to do a different style for a change and get inky! haha

Can't wait to see what you all create!  Good luck at the challenge!

Creative Knockouts Challenge #467 - Make it Funny!

Hello crafty friends!

It's another beautiful week ahead - seriously, hasn't this August weather just been incredible?  I don't know about you, but I don't want summer to end this year!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #467. 

Our theme this week is "Make it Funny” and our sponsor is the amazing “Pattie's Creations”. I chose to work with a stamp set called "Pickle Jar

Here is what I created:


I printed off the image and watercolored, then re-traced all the lines with a thin sharpie to make it more defined. I created the sentiment on my computer and printed off. Easy peasy!

I hope to see you at the challenge! :)

Until next time,

Jess
