Well, Sunday has rolled around again and that means it's time once again for a new challenge over at the OSAAT Challenge Blog. The theme this week is 'old stash, new stash', meaning use a bit of both. We have another great sponsor this week........
.............'Michelle's Scrapbooking & more' are offering a $15 gift voucher to one lucky winner. I actually have 2 creations again this week, so first up, I have a fairly traditional Christmas card.............
This week I got to colour up an image from Gingerloft Studios called Reindeer Carousel, which you can find at the Stitchy Bear Store. This image cries of traditional Christmas, but I didn't want to go too vintage so I used a fair bit of green.......a colour I don't use too often.
The reindeer was coloured with my Prisma pencils and you can't tell from the photo, but the pole, sprig of holly and bells are layered with Glossy Accents. DP's are from Bo Bunny, I used an EK Success punch around the image, and ribbon and bells are $ store finds (my old stash). I also used a tiny piece of my Jillibean Soup twine to attach the bells to the ribbon. Oh, almost forgot, I used another EK Success (my new stash) on the striped paper and fed the ribbon through. The sentiment, which I really like, is a freebie I picked up a while ago from Bizzy Becs, if you'd like to check it out.
That's about it for this one, so on to my second DT creation.............Naughty or Nice.........
I really love this image......Vintage Vamp by Stitchy Stamps, which you can also find of course at the Stitchy Bear Store. I had every intention of going vintage with this, till I realised the image was called Vintage 'Vamp' and not 'Stamp' as I originally thought! (lol) Armed with that info, I knew she'd be wearing a little red number.............and voila.........a Christmas card! I had a little fun with the sentiments on here also, as she strikes me as swaying toward the 'Naughty' list!
Well, no Prisma pencils on here, only Copic markers, and all cardstock is of the plain white variety.......embossed of course with a couple of Cuttlebug folders. The cute red trim is some I picked up a fair while ago (my old stash-not sure of the make) and have been itching to use, and the red snowflakes are new, but again, not sure of the manufacturer. The Christmas Bingo ticket is a digi from Sarah Hurley, and the 'Naughty or Nice' sentiment is again another cute freebie I picked up from Bizzy Becs. I cut both circular sentiments using a 'Nestie' and threaded twine or ribbon through. The 'Dear Santa' sentiment is printed from my PC, onto cardstock I'd punched using an EK Success punch. All the corners on this Easel card have been punched/embossed using a Fiskars corner punch.
And that's about it.......I'll be back later of course with challenge hopefulls.
Go check out the other OSAAT Design Team creations and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
