Teddy Bear Amongst the Flowers

The optional twist for Twisted Thursday is to use our first embellishment. Our sponsor is Leigh SB Designs.

I can't really remember for sure, but probably my first embellishments were flowers. These flowers were created with parchment paper using floral flowers and leaves from Clarity Stamp.
The image, Teddy Bear Valentine Wreath, was printed on parchment and colored from behind using water based markers and Prismacolor colored pencils. I only used part of the image to nestle into the flowers. See my last post to see the full image.

Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy reading your comments!

Warm Hugs

Challenge #47 on the Double Trouble Challenge blog is all about what makes you warm. Add some embossing and/or link up with Stinkin' Inkers!
Dimension view from top
What could keep you warmer than a scarf, hat, sunshine, and a nice hug?

Isn't this the cutest group of snowmen? These are from the new release from Paper Smooches , Winter Greetings. I colored them with Copics. The display card was made with a WindowRama Cutting Die from Stampendous!

Lots of embossing going on here. The snowflakes, from the same stamp set, were heat embossed with white. The snowy banks were heat embossed with chunky white embossing enamel from Stampendous, the sun was dry embossed on gold cardstock then die cut.

Also shared with the Paper Smooches Challenge for January!

Time to Let it Snow

 The optional twist this time on   Twisted Thursday, is clock or timepiece.

Our sponsor is Sherri Baldy of My Besties. I selected Image 1858, Winter, and colored her with Copics and PrismaColor pencils. Then, she was fussy cut and popped over the edge of the oval.

The card has two layers of embossed snow/clocks sandwiched with an oval opening. A tiny tag with a clock charm and tie was added to explain the addition of clocks to a winter scene!

Baby It's Cold Outside

Interesting optional challenge this week for Twisted Thursday is to use a horded supply. Well, I found a set of metallic gel pens about 5 years ago on clearance that I just love. I almost never use them because I am afraid that they will run out and they are just too expensive to buy, LOL!  Here is a link to the gold that I used, but I actually got a set for less than what one sells for. You can barely see it, but I used it on her boot buttons!
Our sponsor is My Besties and I selected Image#469, that I colored in Copics and colored pencils. The window is from Sizzix, the embossed snowflakes from Echo Park, Snow is Falling. The background is an embossing folder, and the added color is from Distress Oxides.  I created the sentiment in Word, and fussy cut and popped the image. 

Thanks for dropping by!

Christmas Cutie

We are having a Sponsor Appreciation Month for Twisted Thursday as a thank you to all the generosity that allows us to share our creations with all of you
This time, for an anything goes challenge, I have selected this sweet Christmas image from LeAnn's World 101. This was a freebie from last December, but there is a similar one available. 

I colored her with Copics and added some fine line pens, and colored pencils. Then, I added some Nuvo in glitter on the hat pom pom and clear on the ornament.

Some fancy die cut layers (some popped), some fussy cutting of the image, and a few gold embellishments finished the card. 

That fun background was created by using a stencil from Rubbernecker called Squares and Rectangle and ink.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will check out all of the sponsors that have supported us this year!
