For Unto You is Born . . .

Good morning peeps!  Another card for the season.  I used Angels Among Us for the angels and sentiment and the stars from Polar Peace from Deedee's Digis for this card.  I cut the stars from Polar Peace and the silver background from DCWV Gliatzy Glitter 6x6 paper.  The green cardstock is from Bazzill.  I cut the card shape and the images with my Cameo.

After you leave me a comment, why not hop over to Crafting by Designs and join in their challenge for this week.  You have a chance to win Deedee's Digis.

Penny and Her Pup

I made this card for the 2 Cute Ink Group.  I joined the digi image club.  This is one of the digis for this month.  It's called Penny and Her Pup.

The card base is a Silhouette file cut with American Crafts cardstock.  All of the cardstock is from American Crafts.  For the orange large leaf, I inked a spider web embossing folder with black ink to make the ribs.  On the yellow one, I drew in the ribs with a marker pen.  The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny Apple Cider collection 6x6 paper pad.  I colored the image with Copic markers.

Snowman Christmas

I was inspired to make this card from a card I saw on Elizabeth Craft Designs  It was fun to do although I had to make it twice before I finally got what I wanted,  I cute pieces of Sook Wang tape and burnished them with Glitter Ritz.  Then I added the snowmen vinyl stickers from Els.  I used Copic markers to color the snowmen.  The next step was to peel off the finished stickers and adhere them to white cardstock.  I fussy cut each square out, then adhered them to black squares.  I embossed the white panel with a snowflake embossing folder and adhered it to the red card base.  I added red Dazzles and the sentiment from Els.

Deedee's Digis November Progressive Challenge

I can now announce the good news that I have been sitting on for awhile.  I have been chosen to join the Design Team at Deedee's Digis.  I am so excited to be on this great team.  As you know if you have been following my blog, Deedee's Digis is one of my most favorite digi sites.    If you haven't done it yet, hop on over to the site after you leave me a comment and check out the fabulous design.

For this, my first entry to the DT, I am using the November Digi of the Month Club, Polar Peace.  I used the precolored image and used some matching American Crafts foil cardstock and plain cardstock as layers.  I printed the image on photo paper because I wanted to have a shine to this great image.  The sentiment is part of the image set.   I also cut an extra star to highlight the sentiment.  The ribbon is a scrap piece from my stash.

If you would like to join the Digi of the Month Club, go on over to Deedee's Digis.  You need to purchase the digi for your first month (unless you buy  $10 worth of digis, then it's free).  Then create a card and enter it in the DOM challenge.  Next month you will receive your new digi absolutely free.
