Whiff of Joy December Project

Good morning! And a Very Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope everyone has a wonderful day and rest of your weekend!! :)

Today I am sharing my Whiff of Joy Project for November. We are sharing Christmas Decorations:

For my project I made this little Drum using my Silhouette Cameo and a file from SVG.Cuts. I used assorted scrap papers from Christmas last year and I added twine, brads and tinsel. This is open on the inside so I can fill it up with Chocolate or Candy Canes! I used Angel Maya on the drum. I did a bit of decoupage on her. She is colored with my Copic Markers.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E02, E11
  • Star and Halo: Y00, Y11, Y15, Y38, YR24
  • Hair: YR20, YR23, E33, YR24
  • Dress: R35, R37, R56

November Cuddly Buddly

Good morning!

Today I am sharing my second Cuddly Buddly post with you for November:

I decided to use the Budding Vine Corner from Lilyboo's Pretty Cottage. Once I had those colored up I knew that I wanted to do just a pretty simple card, but I needed some fantastic sentiment to go in the middle. And what better sentiment to put in the middle but a wonderful scripture!!  And then I found Kim MacFarlane's Holy Scriptures and I knew I had found what I wanted. I saw this scripture which she put into the shape of the Cross and I just LOVE it!! That is when it came together. I colored the corner with my Copic Markers. I added some stitching, some Embossing Enamel and the pearls. It is a pretty simple card for me, but I don't think its quite CAS. LOL  Oh well! Maybe it would be considered CAS to some? I'm not even sure! That is how CAS illiterate I am!! I also inked around the white paper with Rose ink. I layered the same papers on the inside and added some stitching and pearls to finish it off.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Flower: R20, R22, R24
  • Leaves: YG01, YG05, YG09
  • Vine: E31, E34, E35, E37

Meljen's Designs November DT Inspiration

Good morning everyone! I think I feel a little bit better today. I haven't decided yet LOL  I hate being sick! Today is my son's birthday... so Kevin is out with my youngest doing some shipping for cake and stuff. That's my day! Hoping to feel a bit better.

So, today is my inspiration post at Meljen's Designs. I have been wanting to try this creation for a while now and when I decided which image I was going to use this month I decided that this was the image to use for this:

So, I think they are classifying this as a card, but I'm going with a Christmas Decoration LOL!! I didn't add a sentiment and the gifts are all glued down, so there is really no way to fold this up and put it in an envelope. For that... I think it justifies calling it a Christmas Decoration! I'm trying to decide if I should keep it and put it out at Christmas or if I should give it as a gift... to my mother or something! I'm just not sure! Anyway!!  I used Christmas Tree which you can find at the Meljen's Designs Shop. I LOVE this image! I think I use it every year LOL I just LOVE to decoupage it!!  It is perfect! I decoupaged each layer of the tree and then the gifts. I have inked everything in Tea Dye ink. I used a bunch of random Christmas paper scraps from last year to create this. I used ribbon around each gift. I layered the snowflake dies.. those are Sizzlits. I also added a small snowflake corner.. I believe that is Memory Box, but I'm not 100% sure. I also added a Holly corner that is sort of hidden behind the square gift at the bottom. There are also two snowflake border die cuts.. I know that those are Memory Box. I added white pearls to the large layered snowflake centers. I added small gems on some parts of the snowflake corner and border dies. The star on the tree and the ornaments have some Stickles on them and the lights have some Diamond Glaze on them. Hard to see that in the photos. I distressed the layers of paper on the bottom and inked the dies and the paper around the image. The image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol  And I think that is about it! It took me 2 days to make this... well... that isn't counting the coloring and decoupaging.. with that I would say 3 days. It was really fun to make though! I doubt I will do another though!!

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

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.
