Red Carpet Studio Challenge

Happy Sunday!

It's a combined challenge over at Red Carpet Studio.  This week the Card and Layout Design Teams are in an Anything Goes Challenge.  The theme this week is "Sweet."  Create anything, does not have to be a card or layout, with a sweet theme.  Our inspiration is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 

Our wonderful sponsor, Vampire Craftin, will give a blog makeover to the winner. 

My project...

I created a candy box.  I love ginerbread men, especially since I have a daughter, son, and granddaughter with ginger colored hair...a light golden red.  So beautiful.  Also, our little city has a candy shop. They sell the most wonderful chocolates and my daugther loves their Peanut Butter Meltaways.  So I filled this box with some meltaways for her for Christmas. 
Head over to Red Carpet Studio Blog and link up your creation. 
Hope my creation inspires you somehow.
Much scrappy love,

Play Date Cafe Challenge #161

Happy Tuesday!

I am sharing a card with you I created for the PDCC #161.   The challenge is to use the colors Evergreen, Gumdrop, and Candy Cane Red.

I love creating cards with a white base, but I'm a messy crafter.  So they never turn out the way I picture it. 

For my card I used Tim Holtz distress ink Evergreen Bough to stamp the angel, then I applied Perfect Pearls to the image.  I inked the edge of the stamped image card with Distress Ink in Festive Berries (for Candy Cane Red).  And the pearls are a light gumdrop. 

Hope my creation inspires you somehow.

Much scrappy love,

Tonya - You are HERE

If you're coming from Gill's blog, then you're on the right track. If you just happened to stop by my blog today, be sure to head on back to Kristy's blog and hop from the beginning.

I created a card with a Bugaboo Digital.  I imported the digi into Make The Cut and used my marker holder and Silhouette Cameo to draw it.  I also shadowed the image and cut it out with the Cameo.  I colored the image with my Copics.  But wasn't as successful as I would have liked to be.  (I'm still learning).  I still love the was the card turned out. 

Now it's time for you to head on over to Jeannine's blog.

Thank you so much for hopping along with us today, and we all hope that you were filled with loads of Christmas joy, as well as loads of inspiration!

For today's hop, I made....
   Usually we have trees in every room and every floor of our victorian home. But this year, we haven't gotten them all put up. So when I found this foam stackable in a box of Christmas decorations, I thought I'd put it to good use. And the kids LOVED it. My two little boys enjoyed watching Mommy spraint paint the tree on a cardboard box on the kitchen floor. ;-)
