Crafters of Faith Challenge

Today is reveal day for Crafters of Faith Challenge group over at Splitcoaststampers.  Imke was the hostess this month and she chose the scripture Matthew 2:10 (When the wise men saw the star, they were filled with job).  So the challenge is all about the wise men.
I used the stamp set "Reason for the Season" from Close to My Heart.  I stamped the image on the bottom and then stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of paper to cut out and pop dot it.

Thanks for stopping by.  I enjoyed the challenge this month because it is such a nice holiday card.

PIP Challenge #1749

Time for another challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.  This weeks' challenge (#1749) is sponsored by Digital Delights by Louby Loo

 They have such adorable images in their store.  It was hard for me to decide which image to use.  I finally decided to go with "Christmas Ewan the Mouse". 
I printed off the image and then colored it with my copic markers.  The snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.  I used my Brother Scan n cut to cut out the image after coloring it.  Just so much fun.

Remember that "Anything Goes" over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.  Jump in and join us with your talents.

Create From Your Stash

Today is reveal day for a challenge I am in on Splitcoaststampers.  Someone every month selects a challenge so we can create something from our stash.  This month's challenge was from Vickie and it was to make a gift tag. 
I had recently made this card at a a retreat and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  I think this was a die set but not really sure as Liz was the one who brought this kit and I forgot to ask her.
Thanks for stopping by to see this fun project.

Inky Paws Challenge #60

Well I am still making Christmas cards like mad.  I think when it is all said and done I will of made over 200 Christmas cards.  I sent 100 to a charity, made 55 for family and now I need some for myself to send out.

I noticed over at Inky Paws Challenge that the challenge this week is Sparkle.

So I went to one of my favorite stamp sets "Holiday Hounds" and stamped out the hound in a stocking.  
I first colored it with my copic markers and added some gold stickles at the line marks.  I added the gold scalloped oval and then heat embossed with gold the sentiment. 

So another card done thanks to these wonderful challenges at Newton's Nook.

PIP Challenge #1747

Today is Monday so you know what that means - time for another PIP Challenge.  Today's challenge (#1747) is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  I am a huge fan of their digital stamps.  Please check out their store because they have such an assortment of fun digital stamps. 

For my card today I have chosen Bug JJ 29 Again.  I made this for a friend of mine and it just works perfectly. 

I started by selecting my paper which is Cupcakes and Carousels by Stampin Up.  I then selected some copic markers to match up the paper and colored my image.  What I love about digital stamps is that you can size them any way you want. I then used a Stampin Up balloon die to accent the image.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to join us over at PIP Challenges because as always "Anything Goes".

Thanks to Jeanette for a great challenge.

Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge

I am still working on Christmas cards.  I can't believe November is almost over.  I decided I would make a card for a family member who loves dachshunds.  I noticed over at Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge that they were having a Color Challenge so I designed my card around those colors. 
Image may contain: text 
For my card I chose the stamp set "Holiday Hounds".   I colored the dachshund and then fussy cut him out.  I did the same with the Christmas hat.  I then pop dotted him over the snow.  
I just love Newton's Nook stamps because they just make you smile.  Thanks so much for stopping by to see my card.
