Crazy 4 Challenges -- Birdy

Not my best photo. I have found that lately, when I try to snap my photos I tend to shake the camera. So I have started trying to place my card and my camera on the same surface. It steadies the camera, however the pictures are not that great. So back tot he drawing board.

That said, this card is entered into Crazy4Challenges #114 - black and white and one other color. Mine is black white and red. I've had this little stamp for ages. Every time I stamp it I find a love it even more. I've stamped it on colored cardstock and embossed with silver, gold and white. Never unhappy with the results. Today was no exception -- I stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed with Sparkling Black embossing powder. Then I used my Cherry Cobbler marker and colored just the bird. What you can not see it is the wing is glittery red cs as are the corners. Thanks for looking.

Santa Treat Box

It doesn't get much more F-U-N thank this!!!
Here is a Santa I created using Vimar Serrano's "SCHWEET" tutorial. I had to tweek it a little as I didn't have the Snowburst Embossing folder and I used a box pattern I had on hand and traced it to make my box base. I used Real Red cs instead of Riding Hood Red. I also used the Red Glitter paper for my holly berries. On my pompom I used the Northern Flurry embossing folder.

 This one taken with flash.

This one taken without flash.
I just think he's too stinkin' cute!

Lily Pad - Kathy's Lily Pad Palette

Lily Pad - this week Kathy's color palette consists of blue, yellow and red. Or in my case Island Indigo, More Mustard, and Cherry Cobbler. I used Real Red cs and stamped the Medallion in Versa Mark ink then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I punched Boho Blossoms and layered them, added a Filigree Designer Brad and a few rhinestones. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Season stamp set. I punched two Decorative Labels in More Mustard and backed the Whisper White.

Hope you enjoyed looking. Don't forget to try your own hand at Kathy's Lily Pad Palette.
