MORE REAL THAN...

For this card I I followed the Stella Says Sketch layout.  The image is also from Bugaboo, called Unicorns Are More Real.  I kept this very CAS by only adding a bow and some gems.

I Believe In Reindeer

I won two images from The Paper Shelter's 10th birthday celebration.  This is one of the images I won, it's called Holy Night.  I picked this one because I do not have many reindeer images that are elegant...  I have this reindeer die and never get to use it.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I added pearls, flowers and a stick pin I made.

Unicorns are Awesome

Okay, I went way overboard on another card...LOL  I tend to do that when I drink wine while creating.  LOL  This is a result of too much wine and too many embellishments!  haha  I used a lot of dies on this card, a lot of flowers and a lot of gems.  I made the sentiment myself, I'll share it here:

  

Feel free to left click and save - these!  :)  Now, onto my cards...  These were made using images from The Paper Shelter.  I used Unicornmania on this one.



Yess, too much fluff, but it's still fun!! LOL

This other card was made using I'm a Panda Deal With It.  Most people will be shocked (those who know me) to find out I did this card all one layer (not counting the bow, gems and butterfly).  I did the layout on my computer, then printed it out.

Stab people with my head?

So, I'm right in the middle of this unicorn craze!  LOL  I loved them when I was a kid, never stopped, just hid it!  haha  I happened to grab a couple new images from The Paper Shelter last week for their birthday challenge while they were on sale.  This one is called Glittery and Sparkling.  I love the rainbow tattoo on her arm too!  Makes her 'bad arse' enough to fit the sentiment I put with her.  I used the pre-colored on the digi paper that is all included with the set, I added Stickles to her hair and horn and some Glossy Accents to her eyes and hair charm.  I used a punch around the page, corner punch, butterfly punch and butterfly ides.  The final touch was the bow.




This next one was made using an image called My Unicorn.  I added flowers, gems, used die cut leaves and circles, added a charm and a bow.

Winter Brrrthday Card

This fun image came from My Besties Shop/Sherri Baldy, it is called Nov Printables a7.  I added some Glossy Accents over her eyes and buttons and some Stickles on her hat and scarf.  I cut her out using a stitched oval die.  I used a fun winter tree scene die for the bottom.  The paper also came from A set from My Besties Shop called 3D Little Bestie Snowman Winter Candy Kit.  I added gems, a bow, snowflakes, a heart and lots of flowers.

Incy Wincy's 10th Birthday

This is the 10th birthday of Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog!  It is an awesome story behind how this blog was started and to see all who supported this blog in the last 10 years!  One of the big supporters of Incy Wincy was/is Nikki of Limited Runs, who is a frequent sponsor AND is on the DT AND is there when we all need her.  So, it only makes since that she is our sponsor again this time around.  I asked Nikki what image she would like to see used for this challenge and she couldn't decide between two, and they're both fun images!! So, I used chose to use them both! LOL  The two images were:


 
and
  
For Owl Marty, I connected three together to make it look like one image and made a birthday card "from all of us".  I added googly eyes to each image.  I added some lace, flowers and ribbon and some flowery DP.

For Fish in a Bowl I made it a shaped card added some fish beads, flowers and ribbon.  Love the fish DP I found to use too.  Of course, had to keep with the fun googly eyes!  LOL

TWO FUN CARDS

I won a couple of fun images from Dr Digi's last week and was excited to get to play!! 



Here are the two cards I made with them:

This first card was made sing three different DPs, a duckie die, some buttons, a tag die, the precolored image called Bath Time Deidery.  I used some glittery stickles on the bubbles and some glossy accents on her glasses.  I also added some hemp twine as a bow on the tag and a gem on the duckie for it's eye.  I also added a couple of ducks inside the card.



For my second card I used a background DP, a fence die, a sentiment from Create With TLC, a button, some metal gems, some burlap, the string from the burlap was used a the knot in the button and on the sentiment.  The image I used was a precolored image called Aubery Bumblethorpe.

Aged Like Fine Wine

It has been so nice having some extra time to spend in my craft room.  I've made more cards in the last few days than I think I've made all year long.  I decided to celebrate with two different groups that are celebrating different things, Bugaboo (that one is over now), and The Paper Shelter.  The Paper Shelter is celebrating their 8th birthday with a blog hop and card challenge.  The blog hop is not required, however, why not enjoy the inspiration offered?  :)

For this card I used the image called "In The 20s".  I added cheese cloth, pearls, lace, ribbon, a sentiment from Create With TLC, flowers, dies and a stick pin I made.  I went a bit crazy with the layers on this smaller 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 card.

Facebook Friends On Your Birthday

This is a card made for the birthday celebration over at The Paper Shelter...  They are doing a blog hop and their usual card challenge, so the hop isn't a requirement, but well worth the trip!  :)  For this card I used an image called Coffee Break.  I looked all over the place for the sentiment knowing I had it, but thought it was from another company...NOPE!  It was from a fun Bugaboo stamp set called Stella Facebook Birthday.  I spent more time looking for the sentiment than what it took to make the stinking card!  LOL  That is what happens when you have something in your mind and you are dead set on using it!  haha  I used an embossing folder on the burnt orange cardstock.  All of the colors came from a cardstock pack set, and they matched so well with the pre-colored image!!  All I really added was the pink pearls and ribbon.

A Year Full Of Smiles

This is a card made for the birthday celebration over at The Paper Shelter...  They are doing a blog hop and their usual card challenge, so the hop isn't a requirement, but well worth the trip!  :)  For this card I used a sweet winter image called Warm In The Winter.  I added some lace, a sentiment from Create With TLC, tons of flowers, some gems, leaf dies, a small amount of cheese cloth, a unicorn die and a cat die.

Awkward Holiday Chaos Days 6 & 7

Here are two more cards for the 'tis the season for awkward holiday chaos' over at the Catch The Bug Challenge Blog. 

Day 6:  What the Fruit Cake?

For this card I used all of the colors...I think.  LOL  I used the image Sassy JJ Christmas Box.  I used an oval cookie cutter die for the frame and distressed the edges of the rectangle layers.  I used three rose buds and a white bow.  I added three pearls in the other corners.




For this card I went with (Sentiment, Non-Traditional Christmas Colors and Star).  I used the Snowman Couple image.  I used a snowflake border die and cut it out so I could make it go around the edge of the circle.  I added lace and ribbon and gems.  The star was made using three stitched cookie cutter star shaped dies.  The sentiment was cut using a die as well.
