Some Of My Favorite Creations To Date

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

It is time for the November sneak peeks @ Clear Dollar Stamps!

Today's peek is from the adorable PatchPal Reindeer set illustrated by the talented Shawne Arnold. This stamp set will be available November 1st @ CDS.

I painted it to match this pretty "Be Merry O Christmas Tree" designer paper by: My Mind's Eye. I was lucky enough to find trees with dots so I colored the dots on the deer the same colors. The cardstock is Bazzil.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Paper Take Weekly Challenge - Spots and Stripes
The trees and the reindeer have spots and other trees and his socks have stripes.
Daring Card Makers Challenge - "These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things"
Use at least 5 of your favorite things.
This one is easy!
My all time fave cardstock is Bazzill Dots.
My fave embellishment is ribbon.
My fave glitter glue is Stickles.
My fave time of the year is Christmas. (Christmas stamp)
My fave technique is sewing .
My fave color is green.
My fave size card base is 6" by 6"
My fave type of coloring is watercolor pencil,
My fave tool is my Wizard and Nesties.
My fave type of image is cute critters
That makes 10! :)
All Sorts Challenge - Furry Friends
I used a reindeer
ABC Challenge - "G" is for Green
I used green as my card base and the scallop around the main image, the bow, the 2 square panels, some of the trees, the package, some detail on the deer, and the stitching are green.
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - All That Sparkles
I used a sparkly ribbon and added lots of Stickles to the images.
Winter Wonderland Challenge - Open Theme (anything goes)
ta da!
