I made a cute little ChrIsTmaS card combining a few ChaLLengeS for today...
I used the September Sketch for You To Try
...since the month is almost over, I figured I'd better get on this before the October sketch is out! :)
Here's the sketch...which I LOVED!!! All I could see was toooooooooons of different, fun, patterned papers when I looked at it! :)
...and here's my PeNnY bLaCk ChriStMas take on it...this stamp is sooooooooo cute!!! Look at that face! ack!
but all that patterned paper is where the second chaLLenge comes in...
this week was to use patterned paper...ummmm....pretty sure I've got that covered here!!!
The third ChaLLenge was from
...and here's a better shot of this week's little ReD! :) You can kinda see the tinsel glitter I added on the bottom of her dress here too...It's fun and sparkly IRL.
This stamp has been sitting for WeEks...waiting patiently to get all inky...this was the first time she got dirty...but I'll DeFinIteLy be using her again!!
I wanted to add a red jingle bell in the center of my button...but the only one I had was GiNorMouS!...so I dug around and found some cute little bitty guys...but they were gold...ummm...yuck with this card...sooooo....
here's my tip for the day...but only try it if you're wearing gloves or don't mind technicolor fingertips...
Just color your metal bells with a copic in the color that you want :) Mine were pretty small, so I threaded the top through a large headed quilting pin to make it easier to hold while I colored...then I pulled it off and colored the top...my fingers looked all gruesome and bloody afterwards...but my JinGLe BeLLs were LipSticK ReD! PerFecT!!
See??? It was totally worth looking like I'd had an unfortunate run in with the garbage disposal for a few hours! :) Those red guys are just right!
...and here's the envelope.
Have a WonDeRfuL HumP DaY!!
