 for my project i made a very lovely shaker card inspired christmas ornament that features a lovely Pretty Christmas Tree with Presents  i like the idea thatit was cold outside and you were looking in at the nice warm christmas tree.  i used the largest lables die that i had for the base, and added a half inch lip around the edge and place another die of the same size on the lip cut out a window and covered it with acetate the cut some ttime holtz snowflakes edge die and cut them apart and embossed them with stampendous embossing enamel and added antique buttons all around the edge of the "window" .  it was a bit labor intensive but well worth all the effort.

inky impressions challenge- give thanks

hello everyone it's that time again, time for a new challenge from inky impressions.  the new challenge theme is give thanks, which is a very easy thing to do this time of year :).  here's my card for this week :

i tried to keep this card nice and sophisticated by using sepia tones and blacks.  i used the senitment "you're unforgettable" on this card, i love the size of the sentiment stamps they fit perfectly onto little labels or tags, like ive used here.
i used the stamp Lili playing in the leaves and colored her in sepia tones with my copic markers.  :)

i hope you enjoy this card and stop by the inky impressions challenge blog to join us :)

inky impressions happy birthday challenge

hello everyone!  this week at the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog the new theme is "happy birthday!"  this works out great for me, because a lot of the people in my family have birthdays during the holiday season.  5 to be exact, sprinkled all through the 4 major holidays (halloween, thanksgiving, christmas and new years) and with 5 extra birthdays this is a VERY busy time of year.  so anytime i can kill two birds with one stone by making a birthday card and entering to win some challenges is very awesome! :)  the card that i made is for my little 3 y/o girl her birthday is in december.  :)

since the new tinkerbell movie came out i decided to use fairy Lili  which is a PERFECT match for the doll! i was so happy about that.  :)  and my little girl's favorite color is green so i tried to really green it up in this one :)

here's a little close up of fairy lili,

and a side angle of the card,  as if there isn't enough waste due to packing i decided to make my own packing lol.  but i really love the image and the doll side by side.  and my birthday girl is little so she doesn't exactly know what to do with cards yet.  so this works out perffect for her :)

i hope you enjoyed this project and try it out yourself!  thanks for visiting! :)
