It's time for another TCPTuesday!! The challenge this time is an extension of the Anything Goes challenge from the previous two weeks. So with that in mind, I pulled out my Besties set along with some DCWV Timeless Collection designer paper and got to work. After stamping the image in memento black on white card stock, I colored the bike and penguins using my prismacolor pencils. Once the coloring was finished, I pulled out some stipple brushes and lightly stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the upper edge of the main image panel for the sky and brushed corduroy for the "road" then stippled in a little bit of Stampin Up! basic grey to help darken the "road" a bit more. The only embellishments added were some vintage brads and two heart flourishes.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day and don't forget you still have time participate in the TCPTuesday challenge.

Hello and welcome. Today I am sharing a Christmas card I've made for the Mountain Plains Crafters Lawn Fawn challenge. For the challenge, we had to make a card using a lawn, or a fawn, or both!! Since, I'm trying to get my Christmas cards done ahead of time to avoid stressing during the Christmas season, I pulled out my Joyous Season and New Pines stamp sets by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company and got to work.
New Pines in Adirondack citrus ink directly onto the card, I stamped the main image from Joyous Season in memento tuxedo black ink onto white card stock. I then colored the fawn, grass and pine needles using prismacolor markers before coloring the cardinal and sky using prismacolor pencils with a blender marker before stippling Tiim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the edges of the image to help finish filling in the sky and Stampin Up! green galore ink to help fill in the grass a bit more. Once all of the coloring was finished, I layered the image, added brads, and then adhered over a dry embossed snowflake border using glue dots. I then made my own floral sprays using a flourish die along with a Martha Stewart poinsettia, fern and pine branch punches highlighting the centers with gold ice stickles.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Hello there! It's time for another TCPTuesday over on The Cat's Pajamas and this time the theme is anything goes. Since I'm still getting my mojo back from taking care of hubby for a few months, not to mention my own migraines, I pulled out one of my favorite TCP sets "Idols", which is retired, along with an allegro cuttlebug embossing folder to make it easy on myself. Not much of a challenge, but hey, what can I say?
After stamping and coloring the images, I stippled some Tim Holtz wild honey distress ink around the edges of the main image panel before layering then adding some baby brads. To the embossed panel, I also stippled Tim Holtz spiced marmalade distress ink to help highlight the embossed edges before adding some silk flowers from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day. To everyone who has served in the military, or is currently serving right now, THANK YOU SO MUCH for you service.
