Here is my card. Hope you will stop by the challenge and see what my teammates have made with the cute image!




I colored the image with Copic markers. The bottom layer was dry embossed. The die cut below is from a new set by Stampin' Up! The image itself was cut by a new die from Gina Marie Designs.

Starry Night for the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge

We have more great themes this week at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge.  Let's Go Sleigh Riding, Deer in the Snow, Starry Night, and Winter Birds.

I chose Starry Night because I had an awesome precolored image by Deedee's Digis that was called Starry Night and wanted to use it. My sticker elements are by Bo Bunny.


Bugaboo is giving a great prize of 4 digital images to our lucky January winner! Please visit our sponsors as they are so generous with their prizes and we simply couldn't have challenges without them!

Christmas Trees at the Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge

Each week we have four themes to choose from at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge. This week, I picked Christmas Trees because I just got this new die set from Katscrappiness that I have been dying to try.  A direct link to the die is here. https://www.katscrappiness.com/products/stitched-layered-christmas-tree-die-by-kat-scrappiness

Here is my card!


To make my card, I cut the Christmas tree parts twice, once from the green patterned paper and once from gold glitter paper and then just layered them on top of each other and glued. 

I then picked up the whole tree and adhered it on a piece of vellum paper that had little gold dots all over it and then I used gold brads to secure the vellum to a piece of white cardstock that was cut to the same size as the vellum.

Then I layered that piece on to my red background layer. The Merry Christmas is a die and I cut the words from red glitter paper.

The star, ornaments, bows and tree stand also came in the die set with the tree.

I hope you will stop over to the Festive Fridays Challenge. Our other themes this week are Let's Go Skating, Snowball Fight, and Hot Chocolate.




Our sponsor is Bugaboo!
The prize is 4 digital images.


Hope you will pop in and see what my teammates have made for the Festive Friday's Challenge!
