SLSLines November New Release

Good morning!

Today is the inspiration for the November New Release at SLSLines Digital Stamps. There are some fun winter images ready for you to use!!








For the new release I am using Beatnik Snowman! He is Groovy Man! I colored him up with my Copic Markers. I decoupaged him a bit too. I added some Diamond Glaze to his glasses to make the glasses look better! For the card I used some tye die type patterned paper that I had.. I thought it would fit him well! I used some white glitter paper in the background and I used two embossing folders on that paper... One side is done in swirls and the other half in snowflakes. The top white paper I used only the snowflake folder. I added the snowflake ribbon, some white dew drops and that single white snowflake die cut (sizzlits). The sentiment was created by me. I also added some stitching around the papers. On the inside I added the icicle border on the top with a bit of stitching in there as well.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Hat and Glasses: C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Carrot Nose: YR02, YR04, YR07
  • Goatee: E31, E34, E35, E37

Traditional Christmas at Delicous Doodles

Good morning! It's Friday!!! Woot!!! Can't wait to leave work!! LOL  I haven't even gotten there yet!! I'm really happy it's the weekend. The kids are off of school all next week. I'm off Wednesday through Friday.. I can't believe it is Thanksgiving week never week! Wow!!  That means that Christmas is right around the corner!! I think Kevin and I are going to go for a bit of a ride this weekend! We are suppose to have a nice weekend and there won't be many of those left! At least we don't have 7 feet of snow LOL! Although.. I love snow! But like Vicky said.. We CANT HANDLE the snow LOL! She is SO RIGHT!!!  Have a great Friday everyone... and a great weekend!! 

Today is Challenge #115: Traditional Christmas at Delicious Doodles.








To me Traditional means going back to what Christmas is really about. So I went with the Mother Mary image which you can find at the Delicious Doodles Shop. The colors may be a bit non Traditional, but I think the meaning of Christmas is what is traditional. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils. I did a small amount of decoupage on this image. I used a snowflake embossing folder for the white paper. I added some lace and ribbon at the top. The die around the image is Spellbinders. The sentiment I created and added some matching pearls around it.

Thank You! at Meljen's Designs

Good morning! Thursday!  Woot!!  And I've been so busy at work.. a bit behind even and can't seem to get back caught up. So.. I will go in today and plug along. I can only do what I can! Last night I took Bailey, one of Bailey's friends, Michael and my sister to see the latest installment of The Hunger Games. WellStar has given us the ability to see each of these new releases a couple of days before the release and this one was no exception. The kids were really excited. Now they will be at school bragging about seeing the movie two days before it comes out LOL We had a great time... It was good to spend some time with my sister.

Today we are on Challenge #237 at Meljen's Designs! Our theme this time is Thank You! And I really had to figure out what the heck to do.. so this is what I came up with:






I made three of these little star cards using Army Bear. You can find him at the Meljen's Designs Shop. The star shape is from an SVG file. The die cut around the image is a Spellbinders die. Thank you is stamped. He is colored with Copic markers.. all three of them. I added the gems and the star and some netting behind the image.

  • Bear 1 Camo: E31, E35; W3, W5, W7; YG93, G94, G99
  • Bear 2 Camo: E25, E27, E29; W3, W5, W7; YG93, YG95, YG99

We want to see your fowl... or just your birds.. any birds! We have some great sponsors for this challenge and we want to thank them all SO VERY much!!!



And here is my creation for the Midway Post at Open-Minded:








For this I used Lisbeth on a Swing from MilkCoffee Stamps. I colored the image with Copic Markers. I used several dies for this card.. the border at the bottom, the actual shape of the card, the cut around the image and the flowers as well. The flowers are My Favorite Things I think.. I'm not sure what the bottom border is. The die around the image is Spellbinders and the card was cut using the Cameo. I added some stickles to the maroon flowers to add some sparkle to them. I used gems for the centers of the flowers and small yellow gems on the side of the image. I distressed the edge of the patterned paper. I did do a little bit of decoupage. I popped the birds, her hands and her legs.

Fairies Fluttering at SLSLines Digital Stamps!!

Good morning! It is Wednesday... we are halfway through the week!! Woohoo!! It has been a quiet week! No Lacrosse right now.. so I'm not playing taxi as much! It is really nice! Last Saturday Bailey participated in her first Lacrosse tournament. They lost all their games, but I think they did really well against established teams. They are a new team this year with a lot of them only playing one or two years. This was Bailey's first year. She made her very first goal during the tournament too! Boy do I wish I would have had my camera ready for the shot and her expression after she made the goal LOL!! Priceless! But! I was too busy watching and cheering.. Oh well!!

Today is a new challenge at SLSLines Digital Stamps ... Challenge #3 - Fairies! Hope you will join us!!





For this challenge I have used Garden Flower Fairy which you can find at the SLSLines Digital Stamp Shop! I decided to attempt a Clean and Simple card.. rare for me.. because I really stink at them LOL!! I colored her skin and hair with Copic markers. Everything else was colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I added the pink pearls and the sentiment.. and that is it!!  Wow!!  That is really tough for me LOL The shape was cut using a Spellbinders die.
