Christmas ?

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is "Unconventional Christmas".  We have two sponsors this fortnight, Dr Digi's and StarStampz.  For this card I used an image from StarStampz.  I can't find it in the store so I can't link it up.  Sorry!

I made it so the image is on the inside of the card and the front has an opening big enough to see it from.  I used gel pens to color the image with chalk being used for the sky.  I added some Stickles on the tree, the sky and the front of the card.  My finishing touch was the pink bow.

Santa Selfie

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is "Unconventional Christmas".  We have two sponsors this fortnight, Dr Digi's and StarStampz.  For this card I used two different images from Dr. Digi's, I used Snow Fun and Selfie Santa.  I thought it would be fun to have the dog in the background of Santa's selfie.  LOL  I stuck with the snowflakes for the Christmas theme, but went with blues instead of the traditional reds and greens.

lil boy's birthday

For this card I used a pre-colored image from Pink Gem Designs called Skateboard Andy.  I decided to play ont he stars by adding some yellow star punches.  I added a bow and a sentiment die.  I kept this pretty clean and simple.

Life Is TEAriffic

This card was fun to make.  I used a great image from QKR called One Man's Trash.  I also used a sentiment from a Create With TLC set called Life Is Tea Riffic.

How I made this:
To make this card I used a 5.5 x 4.25 inch piece of dark green cardstock.  I used a 5.25 x 4 inch piece of lighter green cardstock with the sentiment printed on it.  I then cut a 7.5 x 3 inch piece of the darker green carstock that I scored at 5.5.  The other two inches I glued between the light and the dark green cardstock and folded it over to make it fold like a "normal" card. I then decorated that piece using some DP, a couple strips of the light green cardstock, some flowers, cheese cloth, ribbon, die cut leaves and the image.  I also added some gems to the upper corner of the card base.

Holy Crap Uncle!!

This weekend I'm heading to Oregon to celebrate my Uncle Dick's 70th birthday.  I figured I had better be making him a card.  He is a silly man.  He has many jokes about his name...  His wife's name is Ima if that gives you any idea of the types of jokes he uses...  LOL  Because of his since of humor I figured I should make him a fun card.  I've made something similar a long time ago, but it was a get well card.

I used some black and some kraft cardstock and some striped black DP.  I used an embossing folder for the lower square.  I added the mini toilet paper roll using brads.  The sentiment was punched using a fun shaped die.  I used sentiment dies for the 'happy birthday' sentiment.  My final touches were to add some black gems, it just looked boring on that side without something.
