Winter Rudi

RudiHello!¬† I actually had some time to play today in my craft room and here is my second holiday card I made today. I opted to use my favorite holiday color combination – aqua and red. I love the softer look of the aqua instead of emerald green. Just a quick post as I really do need to get a few thing done around the house, it’s just so easy to play instead of do housework ūüôā

Joy and Cheer at Christmas

I used this sketch from A Gem of a Challenge:

Image is a digi stamp from Wee Stamps and papers (and gift stickers) are from SEI.  Rhinestones were added to have a bit of wintery bling.

This is my interpretation of the sketch but making kit rectangular.

The cutey is a Digi Stamp Boutique digi stamp, he works so well with the DP!  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.  I added a few flowers and a couple of pearls and rhinestones to complete the card.

It’s getting late so I don’t have much time to chat.¬† I work tomorrow so I better get some much needed beauty sleep.¬† Thanks so much for stopping¬†by!¬† Dee

The Magic of Christmas

Seasons Greetings from all of the Design Team at Aud Sentiments! It’s time to finish our Christmas cards and get them in the mail.¬† Today I have an adorable image from our sponsor, Sassy Cheryl’s Digis.¬† The challenge for the next two weeks is Anything Goes, I made a Christmas card only because I still needed a few more cards – it seems my card giving gift list grows each year.

I colored the digi image using copic markers.¬† One of the wonderful things about Sassy Cheryl’s images is you can purchase them as black line drawings that allow you the freedom to color them as you like or if you are running out of time, you can also purchase pre-colored images that are absolutely gorgeous!

The sentiment is a stamp from PaperTrey Ink (PTI) and the DP is from a paper pad I purchased last year at Walmart from The Paper Studio.  I added felt holly diecut using PTI dies and added a lovely velvet ribbon.  There is something about velvet that just screams Christmas and the holidays for me.

I want to wish everyone the Merriest of Christmas’ and the Most Joyous of Holidays!¬† Dee

We are so lucky this week at Aud Sentiment to have Prairy Fairy as our sponsor. They are giving the winner a $15 Git Certificate to their store. What a fantastic prize.

¬†We are doubly lucky this week as the lovely Paulette from Create with TLC has designed a sentiment for all of us to use for our “Winter Sentiments” challenge at Aud Sentiments.

I drew my color inspiratiion from the challenge photo at Cupcake Inspiration.¬† The poinsettia was made using Spellbinder poinsettia die and topped with a few rhinestones.¬† I added a ribbon and topped it with Baker’s Twine.¬† The DP is again from SEI.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for our Aud Sentiments challenge – you have two weeks to play along.¬† Don’t forget to pick up your sentiment freebie to use as well!¬† Can’t wait to see your creations – Dee!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!¬† As always, this one seemed to fly by.¬† I had a three-day weekend and it seemed like I still didn’t have enough time to get everything done around the house that I wanted to.¬† I did get a Halloween costume made for my littlest grandson – he’s going to be a football!¬† I’m hoping to get a few photos to share with everyone.

Yesterday was spent running errands and today I got to watch the Minnesota Vikings win a close game with the Carolina Panthers.  I started off the morning making a big batch of chili.  I love eating a big bowl of chili while watching football Рa great combination in my book.

I did find a bit of time to make a card before the kids came over to spend the day but I’m just getting around to posting now that the house is quiet and the toys are all put away.

sketch #61I started off with this sketch from Papertake Weekly.¬† I’m using one of images from Digi Stamp Boutique’s Cute Christmas Offer set of stamps.¬† Isn’t Rudi adorable?¬† I colored the image using copics.¬† After coloring the tree, I addded white applique and¬†sprinkled prism glitter over the wet paint before heat setting the snow.

The DP is My Mind’s Eye I Believe “Trees” paper.¬† This double sided paper worked perfectly with this sketch challenge, I just folded over the corner to reveal the reverse side of the paper.

I made the sentiment and saved it as a png file – feel free to enjoy this freebie, all I ask is that you link back to me if you do as I’d love to see what you create with it!

For trims I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the bottom border.  A sheer ribbon and bow were added for the side element.  A corner embellishment from Wild Orchid was added to complete the card.

Thank you for stopping by РI hope you have a wonderful week!  Dee
