Creative Knockouts - Halloween

Thank you to Bugaboo for hosting this weeks challenge!  I chose to work wtih Halloween Spider kitty  I always seem to make cards that are super hard to difficult!  I printed the image from my laserjet printer onto black cardstock and then ran thru my laminator with purple foil.  I did use colored pencils to add a little pop and a sparkle brush!  Happy Halloween!

Creative Knockouts - Lots of Layers


This week, we are pleased to welcome back Beverly with The Artsystmaper as our lovely sponsor.  
Our challenge this week is Lots of Layers!

I used my image and made a background of it then foiled the background.  I just love using black paper and a light color - it pops and shines so beautifully!

Creative Knockouts - Furry Friends

Thank you again to The Paper Shelter our sponsor for this week's challenge!

This week's image, The Most Adorable Raccoons., is just too adorable!  I do wonder what they are seeing or thinking - and thought the 'believe' sentiment was the perfect fit!

Aud Sentiments #251 Anything Goes

This adorable image from Di's Digi Stamps was so much fun to play with.  I printed three of these on my laserjet printer - two on watercolor paper and one on standard 120lbs white paper from Staples.  I used my Spectrum Noir Glitter markers and colored the flowers in.  I blended a red, orange, and yellow and they are stunning in person.  They were then all fussy cut!  On the standard cardstock I colored in the hedgehogs, stems, and the jar.  Once the card was assembled I added glossy accents to the bottom of the jar.  I used the Lawn Fawn stitched borders to surround the image.  The sentiment 'Just Because' is from Crafter's Companion and was part of a die set offered on HSN that I cannot locate to link below!  I had so much fun making this card!  

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!

Creative Knockouts: Favorite Embellishments Challenge #349

Favorite Embellishment.... I'm not exactly sure what that might be - but feathers isn't too far from the top of the list!  Happy Feather's Day - 1 month to Father's Day.

Thank you to our sponsor Dr. Digi.  I used Quackers is called 'Happy Feather's Day!'.  To say I had fun making this card is an understatement.  I included the actual image below.  I bought a yellow boa at Hobby Lobby and started plucking feathers on to these little guys.  Then I colored in the beak, eyes, and feet, and fussy cut them out and glues them on top of the feathers.  The background is whipped spackle with warm glitter from Elizabeth Crafts.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

Thank you for joining us at Creative Knockouts for this week's Embellishment's Challenge!
