Character Challenge

It's Designer Challenge Day at Elizabeth Craft Designs!  That means there's a ton of fun and crafty inspiration on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  This month, we are celebrating Christmas Fun with Character Dies.  There are several SERIOUSLY cute new dies out; be sure to check them out at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  And there's a prize.  All you have to do is answer a question on their blog!   Be sure to check it out at their blog for your chance to win!


Here's my Santa creation:



Just love him.  I die cut him with adhesive on the front for his pants, jacket and hat and covered with Petal Pink Silk Microfine Glitter from the Bloom Glitter Palette.  Hard to capture the stunning sparkles in this glitter, but it's amazing.  The buttons, boots and gloves are colored with a C7 Copic, the bell with a Y26 and the face with an E000.  The patterned paper is from the 6x6 Unconventional Christmas Collection.  I cut the card front using the Dashing Rectangle die and used the Fitted Circle and Stitched Fishtail Banner dies too.  I finished the card off with a few Nuvo drops in Neptune Turquoise.

Craftily yours,

Karen

New Release from Joset

Today, my design team sisters and I from  Elizabeth Craft Designs are focusing on the new release from Joset.  I chose to make a holiday-inspired card using the ADORABLE new Moose Die!


Cute!!  He is fun to put together, reminds me of playing with paper dolls when I was a kid.  The hooves, antlers and beared and colored with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain, and his body is Tea Dye.  I used the beautiful Christmas Holiday 6x6 Paper.  The rectangle is die cut with two of the Dashing Rectangle dies.  (I just cut the smaller one offset in the middle.  I added a sentiment from the NEW Cute Winter Sentiments set.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Craftily yours,

Sparkly Penguin

Have you seen the ADORABLE new release from Joset at Elizabeth Craft Designs!  So so so cute!  Like the new Penguin die:



I thought he turned out pretty cute in the Snowglobe die!  For his body and wings, I covered White Soft-Finish Cardstock with adhesive before cutting and then covered with Basic Black Silk Microfine Glitter.  His feet and nose are colored with Copic YR14, and the trees in the background are colored with G40.  The paper is from the beautiful Unconventional Christmas line.  Here's a better shot at the glittery goodness.  (It's very smoky here in No Cali, so getting a good pic is tough!)




My complete supplies list is below.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,
