ABC Christmas Challenge 'G' for Glitz with optional Silver :-)

We had lots of lovely entries for the 'F' for Frosty Challenge so thank you to everyone who joined in :-)

this week on the ABC Christmas Challenge the theme is

'G' for GLITZ , with the optional extra of SILVER

We are being sponsored by Toucan Scraps who have gorgeous digi papers :-) So thank you to them :-)

I have just bought this gorgeous Magnolia Snowman and Snowy Circle from Simon Says Stamp. I wish I had bought these before Christmas but better late than never eh !! :-)
I stamped the circle with pigment ink and embossed with silver EP, then masked the circle and stamped the snowman with memento ink, I coloured the image a little with copics and added ice stickles and crystal gems for added Glitz :-)
The papers are magnolia and silver stardream, I also added a white panel thet was cuttlebugged with a snowflake folder and glittered. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch and some punched snowflakes too. The ribbon was from a local shop and the sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on.

The DT have made some fabulous cards this week and Samantha did some fab recycling too ,,, so head on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see them !! :-)

I am entering this card into the Just Magnolia Challenge whose theme is Easel Cards :-) I don't think they will be seeing many Christmas ones this week :-)

The Creative Cottage Challenge has Sparkle as the theme so I will enter this into that challenge too ( thanks Donna :-))

The Quixotic Challenge is Monochromatis so I think my card fits that challenge too I only used a grey and purply grey copic marker :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)

Simon Says Easter/Spring with Glimmer Challenge

Another Wedneasday, another fabulous challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge :-) This week we are doing something completely different ,,,

EASTER/SPRING with added glimmer

As you may have noticed there are a few with the same theme ,,, so plenty of opportunity to combine challenges ! The DT have all used Glimmer Mist on their creations and Heidi Swapp has made a fabulous video tutorial on them which you can see over on the challenge blog . It is well worth watching and if you have glimmer mists we would love to see them used this week ,, but it is not necessary to enter the challenge :-)

Gunn is joining us in the Designer Spotlight again this week, if you haven't visited her blog yet then you are in for treat !! You really should go to say 'hello' ! :-)

I just can't resist these cute Happy Hopper stamps ! I think these are THE perfect Easter stamps, that little chick telling bunny to hurry up ,,, sooo cute :-) This one is called Will Knit for Friends and is available in the Simon Says Stamp Store, all the Happy Hoppers, House Mouse and Gruffies are available !! :-)
I coloured the image with copics and glimmer mists. the shimmer looks really good on the chicks beaks and feet,, I used peach delight to colour those. The papers are Bo Bunny and I used a Martha Stewart border punch, The flower is Prima and has been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist. I love this one particularly and have almost used up the whole bottle, so definitely need to get a new one ! I also coloured the central flower and the edges with peach delight glimmer mist.

Heidi is giving away a $25 spree to the Simon Says Stamp Store and every day new products and new companies are being listed , they now have The Greeting Farm, C.C Designs, Nellie Snellen and many more !! Fabulous !! :-)
