Because of the holidays, I was just able to get to my December and January Challenges from my Challenge Swap thread. So, today, I'm sharing both of them with you.

This challenge was sent with designer paper (behind the image here), the ribbon, 3 snowflakes (I used 2 on here), the image of the boy making the snow angel (LOVE it!!), and the mittens (among other images that I didn't use here.). I used the snowflake Cuttlebug folder with Basic Black SU paper and highlighted the embossed areas with Brilliance Platinum. The images are colored with my new Copics (ordered from Clear Dollar Stamps)!!!!! LOVE those markers!!!!!!!!!!!

The mittens were colored with the Copics, too, and hung with hemp twine. They were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals, and the twine was put under the mittens.

The second challenge was similar in that we had snow images to play with. This one, though, we were suppose to use NO red or green on the card. I had one of the other images colored, but realized too late that I had used red on the lady's scarf. :( I really liked that image, too. Oh well. I like the way this one came out.

The embossed layer was sent as part of the challenge, as were the images, snowflakes and bling, ribbon, and sentiment. I used the Copics to highlight the snowmen and around the sentiment oval (cut with the SU oval punch). I used the smaller SU circle punch for the snowmen layers and the larger one for the silver layers behind the snowmen.

I hope all of you get a chance to create/stamp/color in 2009!! Happy New Year (and have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!)!!!!!!



  1. Oh I love that first card!! It's super cute and I love the hanging mittens.
    What kind of inkpad did you use since you colored with copics?
