MCT 72nd Edition Release Blog Hop & Sale!

Good morning friends! It is time for the 72nd Edition Release Blog Hop and Sale. I hope you have been enjoying our sneak peeks. Today I have several cards to share with you using the adorable A Sloth Holiday stamp and die set. I had such fun creating with this release and I thank Emma for having me as a guest designer for October. Now here are my cards. '

For this card I used Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies for the clouds. I used the balloons and birthday stamp from the Birthday Buddies Stamp Set to make it a birthday card.


I stamped the sloth twice and used the Hang with me sentiment to make this a fun friendship card. I also used 3 Star stitched Die for the starry background.


I had fun with this holiday card. When I found this paper in my stash I thought it was the perfect choice for what I had in mind. I usually color my images and then look for my paper choices. I think most people choose products first and then color. I used the Santa Suit Dies for the hats. For the scarf I used Prehistoric Holidays Stamp Set, and More Stitched Circle Dies for the snowman.


And finally a Halloween card. I used the Stitched Spooky Ghosts Dies, the witch hat from the Classy Girls Accessories set, and the spider from the Too Cute to Spook set. I used halloween colors on the sloths and added the witches hat to spook them up a bit. I hope you have been inspired with a variety of ways to use A Sloth Holiday set as well as all the sets we showcased this week.

LMMS Challenge#174- Anything Goes

Hello friends!  Time for a new challenge at LMMS.  I have used Pdp Vivian.  She has been colored with copics and colored pencils.  That is my preferred medium of choice (at least for now).


I love the Polka Dot Pals because I love to practice doing their faces.  I have to say I am pretty happy with the way she turned out.  Sometimes I make their eyelashes too crazy, or a crooked mouth, but this time, it works for me.  I hope you like her.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

MCT 72nd Edition Sneak Peek #2


Good morning friends! Welcome to day 2 of sneak peeks. We are showcasing Gingerbread Friends and Gingerbread Banners. I also used a few of MCT older dies. I used the stitched Apron Die because I think it works perfectly with those cute gingers. I also thought the Stitched Chunky Jar Dies were great for the cookie jar, and finally the Stitched Doily Die to place the jar of cookies on. I colored the gingers with copics and stamped the sentiments on the Gingerbread Banner Dies.

Cozy by the Fireplace

Hello friends!  Well we have finally had a small bit of cool weather.  I can't believe it is almost the middle of Oct. and we were having temperatures in the 70's.  I almost had to turn the heat on this morning.  For my card today I used this wonderful Fireplace Background stamp by Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Nothing better than sitting by a cozy fireplace to take the chill out of the air.


I used copics and color pencils to color this image.  It makes me excited for Christmas.  It will be here before you know it.  This whole year has been going by so quickly.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

Fun with Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hello friends!  I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  For my first card I used Pdp-Kacee.  I didn't know what to do with this image at first.  With Halloween on my mind, that is the direction I went with.  At first I thought I would try to make her face into a skull to match her skeleton, but that didn't turn out.  So I decided to go with spider webs and a spider nose.  I kept it black and white with pops of red.


I thought the fish net stockings went well with the spider webs.  I would love to see how other people would use her and I would love if Barbara would use my card and color her to make her pop off the page.  I have the hardest time making things look 3 dimensional.  Barbara if you have time I would love the teaching lesson. ;)  Will you accept the challenge?

Here is my second card using the adorable Candy Monster.


Who doesn't love candy corn?  He was so fun to color!  I hope you feel inspired to make some Halloween cards.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

Hello friends!

My Favorite Things is having a card contest with 3 different categories.  You can read all about it here.  I am entering my card into the coloring virtuoso category.


I had such fun coloring this and adding the cast shadows.  I used BB Which Way is the Candy and BB Fav-Boo-lous Friends and the fence from Farm-tastic.  I have used Copics and Prismacolor colored pencils.  The finished card size is 5x7.


Here is my entry for 2017 Card Design Superstar:  Clean and Simple Genius


I used BB Bitty Bears,  Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX,  Die-namics Winter Trees,  Die-namics Bird Houses, and Tiny Check Brights Paper Pack.


And finally here is my entry for

2017 Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master


I unfortunately haven't been able to capture a very good photo of the whole project.  The lighting is not good at this time of night, but I got her done with 15 minutes to spare.  Here are more images and I will list the products used at the end.






Hugs and smiles,
Janice
