Extra sparkle added to gifts this year!

Add some sparkle is the newest challenge at Creative Craft Cottage! I was inspired to use this gorgeous image by our sponsor while putting together gift I'm taking home for Christmas this year.

Lacy sunshine is this challenge's sponsor and this darling image is titled "Snow Bunny Ethereal Enchantress". 

She was colored in my favorite medium....Prismacolor Pencils of course!  I used a white gelly roll pen to brighten the white spots in her eyes after coloring.  Her "faux fur trim" (because fairies would never wear real fur!) is filled in with Stardust Glitter Stickles.  I wish the glitter would show better in the photos, but it's gorgeous in person!

Link up your sparkly project by Dec 4th for a chance to win!

Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Bloghop!

My 2nd card for the Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Bloghop! I really wish I had more time to participate in this seasons festivities, but have been quite busy with the holidays approaching!  Planning a 2 week drive home to visit friends and family as well.

 So here is a simple one using The Ton's new holiday stamp set and some 2nd generation stamping.

The latte cups are from Fiskar's "Latte Love" stamp set, an old one but still one of my favorites!

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and best wishes into the new year!

Melonheadz Christmas Card

I'm so sorry this post is a bit late, but you do still have 2 days left to enter the Melonheadz Winter Holidays challenge!

My new work schedule managing a restaurant has consumed so much more of my time than I realized. Unfortunately, I will have to step down from the DT there. I miss my crafting terribly and will miss the wonderful spirit of the other crafty designers on the team!

I used my favorite medium on this guessed it, Prismacolor Pencils!  This cute couple was then fussy cut and adhered using foam tape. 

The gorgeous holly leaf die cut background is a Cuttlebug cut and emboss die called Holly Layer. Just adore how it came out on green glitter card stock! I also cut a matching piece from green fun foam sheets to give it some dimension.

Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

Here is my first entry into the 2015 Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  I really enjoy seeing so much inspiration and creativity during these season bloghops!

I used snowflakes from Catherine Poolers Stamp of Approval 2nd edition box.  Thought they'd look lovely in blue!

Here I was trying to be creative by stamping on strips of scrap cardstock. After mounting on green glitter paper and adding this handmade bow, I think it came out really cute!
