Snowflake gnome

Hello I'm here with a snowflake gnome card for you. 

Pompom Gnome

I started off by painting the background with different colors of blue distress sprays. I put a few drops on my craftmat and dry brush it on. 
After that was dry I used sliver embossing and enbossed the Snowflake set . I layered it on to a blue shinny paper and added some snowflake diecuts. 
I then stamped and colored the Pompom Gnome with copic markers. Cut out and added to front. Layer it on the front of a white card.

Blue ATCs

 Hello I  here with some blue ATCs for Lost Coast Designs.

I made these 4 ATCs after watching a video. She was making tags and she was wiping the the paint off on the tags and then stamping over them. Well I didn't have my paints out so grabbed what I had next to me and they were distress sprays. I unscrewed the cap and put a few drops on my mat and brushed them over the 4 ATCs. I used 4 different blues, added white dots and then I stamped corner swril  off the side.

 Hello all Cathy here with a slimline card for you.

Stamps used.
So I was inspired by my Christmas pattern paper I have. (pinks,teals,whites, ) 
I stamped Pointy hat gnome on white cardstock and then I stamped small snowflake set in pinks all around him. 
I then colored him in teal to match the teal snowflake pattern paper. 
Next I layered the papers and then I decided to make it into a slimline card. So I then took one of the snowflake from the  small snowflake set that I didn't use and stamped that in teal ink all over the card base.

Day 18 of 31 days of Halloween

 Day 18 of the 31 days of Halloween challenge.
Stamp used:

This card was really simple to make a but together. I think the longest or "hardest" part was picking out the Halloween bits to go on the card and where they go.
I started out with a black card base and layered a orange plaid pattern paper on it. Next I made a tag from Kraft cardstock and stamped More cats the sitting pretty cat onto it. 
Lastly I dumped out my Halloween bits and started finding the right pieces to make my card. Once I had it the way I wanted I started gluing it all down. 

Right now we have 2 challenges going on. Furry friends here.

The 31 days of Halloween here.

The sale is still going on.

Day 14 of the 31 days of Halloween challenge

  Day 14 of the 31 days of Halloween challenge from Lost Coast Blog. 

This card was fun to do. I inked  the phrenology head  from the ATC faces set and wiped off the numbers in the head. You still can see some of them but very faintly. I then colored it with Copic markers in a skin tone, but as I was cutting him out I had a little pointy piece of paper and it gave my the idea for a vampire head so I then colored over the skin tone with a light gray. 
I then added the pointy pieces of paper to make the fangs. 

I hade the Flying skull  stamped out also so I colored that with some purple and grays and I made it into a head piece for my vampire. You can't see in the photo but I added shimmer to the wings of the Flying skull . I also added to little stones to the wings of it.
Next I just layered it with some scrap paper and some Halloween paper for the card base. Add in some Halloween goodies and you have your Vampire head card.

Be.... ATCoins

I'm here with some ATCoins

Stamps used:

I started out with the leftovers from my card I made for the start of the new challenge. I used pieces of calligraphy  and ATC set 6 and some blue ink. I stamped randomly over white cardstock. When I was cleaning my stamps off with a baby wipe I had a lot of ink on it and I smeared it all over it to give the paper a blue wash. I was going for a blueprint feel for it.
I made a card with the paper. I hade some left on my table so I cut out 3 ATCoins with the left over paper. 
Next I took some stamps from  Fortune of men set and stamped them on the ATCoins. I edged the ATCoins with black ink to match my stamped men from Fortune of men set.
Lastly I took some words stickers  from Tim Holtz and added them to the ATCoins. 

I hope you will join the challenge here.
