White On White Dies R Us Challenge

Hello Merry friends!
It is only 10 days before Christmas, can you believe it?
Today is also the 15th which brings us to a new challenge at
Dies R Us!
The theme is White On White
but it doesn't have to be Christmas,
but I must be in the Christmas 'spirit'
and I went with it!!



 I started out by using an embossing folder for the background then
cut a frame from Impression Obsession Rectangle 6 in 1 Frames.

Next I die cut a wreath using Tutti Designs Wreath With Bow.
I coated the wreath with glue using the Nuvo Large glue pen,
then coated that with Sparkling Snow glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
I die cut the bow of the wreath twice separate ,
one from an adhesive craft foam and another from card stock,
which once again I used the glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.
A little glitter 'candi' was applied to the bow center.

To finish I die cut a sentiment using
then cut the tiny bird from

That's it....pretty easy!

Looking Like Christmas

A new challenge theme at 
with our 'sistah ' Agata being our hostess
and she has chosen the theme of
'Christmas'!



I made a pretty simple card  with papers from Lawn Fawn
and stamps from SU.

I stamped the main sentiment image with Versamark
then SNS Red Apple embossing powder.

I also stamped 3 trees from the same stamp set
Season of Joy (2007)
using my TH Stamp Platform so I could stamp several times.
I popped the trees up in various heights.

I added a white deer and a few sequins to finish.

This will be our last challenge for this year
as the sistahs are taking a holiday break
but we will be back on January 10th
all ready to go.

Make sure and pop on over to The Sisterhood blog
to see all the beautiful things my 'sistahs' have created
and join in with us!!

12 Tags of Christmas With A Feminine Twist Day 5

is an easy one with the theme being 'SNOW'.


I used  a TH Alterations Tag die for the tag base
then embossed with a TH Alterations Snowfall EB folder.


I used India ink to stamp a Hero Arts Snow Much Fun stamp on my tag,
colored in with Copics, then went back and used 
Nuvo Crytal Glitter Drops White Blizzard on the snow balls
and snow areas and
Nuvo Crytsal Glitter Drops Sherbert Shimmer on the hat, mittens and scarf!


12 Tags of Christmas With A Feminine Twist Day 4

is a technique challenge 'watercolor'.




For my tag, I die cut a round stitched circle and stamped
a (NBUS) stamp from inkadinkado using India Ink.
I used the TH Stamp Platform to stamp my image 3 times,
giving me a nice clean and perfect image to work with.

I did a very simple watercolor on the wreath using my Zig Clean color brushes.

A bit of Nuvo Silver Moondust Glitter drops 
were used to add a bit of sparkle to the Poinsettias.
Moving on To Tag 5!

12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist Day 3

Here is my tag for Day 3 at the 
Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist
and the theme is 'Naturally Neutral'.





I used a piece of a real wood grain paper for the little stump,
perched a glittery bird on top,
a glittery snowflake and a little clothespin snowflake.
I ran a manila tag through my Cuttlebug,
they used TH Gathered Twigs Distress ink.
Just a simple little tag this time, but all neutral and 'natural'.

I need to get going as they are Day 8 already
which makes me 5 behind!!

Snowman

Since we had our first snow yesterday (only 3")
and about 7 to 9" more to come tonight/tomorrow
I thought it would appropriate to share a snowman card lol!


This card was made for the Tutti Designs Store.
He is really a bit more darker red then he is showing here though.
I used a Tutti Designs Snowman Panel.

I know it's kind of hard to see, but I added a bit of Stickles to each snowflake
and then a row of stickles 'snow' along the edge.
Funny how I hardly ever use my stickles since those wonderful Nuvo drops came along.

Entering the following challenges:
Cardz 4 Galz .... Show Me A Snowman
4 Crafty Chicks .... Monochrome
