PFC 12

I know this is not a great card,lol. But i colored him so many  times and just didn't like him. Even my dd and gs got into coloring him. Like theirs better!! Oh well he is a fun guy anyway. He is for the challenge at the Outlawz for this month. Some people have come up with some really awesome cards with him.

I printed him out a little bigger then used watercolor pencils on him. Did some white ink on his lapel and the teeth around the neck and hat, also under the eyes. I used some red holgraphic card stock. I think he still needed something but just couldn't come up with anything I liked............ When I first saw this I thought of Steven Tyler the singer, yikes!!!! He is a fun one to play around with. 


Today I will share a couple of cards I made. The first one is a swap card at Paper wishes. It was to be a card that you could use as a gift card. All the papers used are from a Paperwish's kit.
Ok this was taken before I added another snow flake brad to use as the closer of this gatefold card.Ok this is the inside, and there is a pocked in the silver part to add a gift card. Not sure why this is at the top when i tried to put it at the bottom. Guess Blog ville is just not cooperating today with me. So i will make a new post for the next card.

Here is my cas card for the challenge at the outlawz this week. It was to make a nontraditional Christmas card. It is purple. The lacy panel in the center is one I had done a while back and found while cleaning off my desk. I  stamped it and used clear embossing powder on it. Then I used some purple ink and spread it around then wiped it off and the lace panel then shows thru.I got this stamp at a sale price along time ago and just love what you can make with it.

Since I couldn't go outside to photograph it, it has a bright spot that I just couldn't get rid of,lol.

Made this for a challenge card at PAPERWISHES. We could only use green and silver.
Here is what I used.

Silver rippled holographic card stock.
3D ornaments Dazzle.
snow flake dazzles.
emerald green paper but not like paper more of a lightweight gauze,lol not sure just how to explain it but it is sooooo light and so pretty.
and stamped with one of my Christmas stamps. It was hard to emboss on this type of paper.
ribbon from my stash.  

Sketch card

Here is my sketch card for the Michael Strong group.
That is the sketch. Pretty simply but not for even me,lol, I tend to over think them and then just not end up with anything I like. But this time I did get one done and here it is.
I got the mini stamps of Michael's and just love them, but hadn't used them yet. So this is what I came up with. I used some paper from HOTP by PAPERWISHES, Some Dazzles as the line across and the WISH for the sentiment. The mini flower stamp with a little dazzle in the center. Love how this little stamp stamps so clean. This is such an easy and clean sketch so i will have to make some more cards using it.

Well this is out of my comfort zone when coloring come into it. I don't really have a flesh color so i used a little peach,lol. For my hubby's and mine 40th. I think he will like it. The first picture is the front then the second is the inside.
 I had used this color for the frame for the digi then thought why not try it on the front of the card. I like how it turned out. The stamps are from a set i got in a craft pkg at JoAnn's. I believe it is by Debbie Moore.
 Like i said i am new to coloring people. She looks a little better in person,lol.

A few more christmas cards

Made a few of these with some new embossing folders,added some fed ribbons along the sides then tied in a not. another bridge card. ...
