Moving Along with The Times - Challenge

Hi my crafty peeps, It's time for another challenge over at Moving Along with The Times. This challenge is a fun one because you can create anything BUT a card, so I did a tag.
This is using a Julie Nutting stamp and lots of fun elements. Below is a close up of some of the deets...
On her dress, I used felt for the shawl. I also added snowflake punches, rhinestones and of course, glitter. To give added interest, I sprinkled embossing enamel around the edges of the tag, to give a wintery feel. She was a lot of fun to create, now I just have to think of another project to use her in, lol. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

World Wide Open Design Team Challenge #29 - 12/15/17

Hi my crafty peeps, The latest challenge over at World Wide Open Challenge Design Team blog is open. Why not hop on over and enjoy the fun?
Here is my latest bit of inspiration...
I used another amazing image from Julia Spiri, coloring her in with Copic Markers. I am a fan of the steampunk lifestyle and this little lady was so fun to color. For added dimension, I added a few spokes and gears made from wood.
I also colored in parts of the image with a gold paint pen for some added pizazz!!!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by Julia's store...
Click on the picture below to go directly to the stamp I used.

Finally, why not join Julia's Facebook Group for more fun and great coloring ideas...
This is a wonderful group of talented ladies, so be sure and drop by! Happy Crafting!!

Challenge - Moving Along with the Times

Morning my fellow crafters! Today starts a new challenge over at
The theme is Twas the Night Before Christmas, so below is my example. Growing up in Canada and being Canadian, snow played a big part of my life, lol. Christmas time always meant cool winter weather and the world wrapped up in blankets of white.
The dimensional snow is white Flower Soft, but I didn't feel it had enough sparkle, so while the glue was still wet, I added glitter for extra pizzaz!
I stamped the trees using Versamark and white embossing powder. I also sprinkled on Stampendous' Deep Impression White Embossing Enamel to give the effect of falling snow. Just a hint, heat your project from underneath, otherwise the enamel will blow off.
Hope you enjoy the card and don't forget to hop on over and partake in the challenge.
As always, Happy Crafting!
