This is my card from the Stampers Quest December Sketch challenge. I really liked the use of the triangles and patterned papers. I opted for one patterned paper and then a cuttlebugged paper...wait I mean a fiskars plate run through my Cuttlebug LOL! The ornament stamp was one I received in an image swap and I am not sure hwo makes it but I colored it with some of my Copic Markers and Metallic Sakura pens and then added some Liquid Applique to it to achieve the snowy look. I layered things onto black cardstock and then onto a blue card base (although it looks black here - sorry) Along the bottom under the ornament is a bit of silver ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon too! It was a part of the Holiday assortment she sent to the ribbon club in Novmeber. I can't wait to see what is in store for January - she took December off :)

The holley is from a set from FCD and the ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Hope the lady I sent it to enjoys it :) Was a little different type of Christmas Card as the inside was blank so I could write her a note.

I don't know who the stamp is by but I was trying a spotlighting technique and I thought this was a fun image to play with. I colored with a combination of my Copic markers, Sakura Pens and Prisma Watercolor Pencils. I added some yummy ribbon and layered it up for a cute holiday card. This year I mailed only a few cards to people - no where near what we used to but each one was different and many are shared here on my blog and some yet to come. I sure hope the people who received them enjoyed them as much as I did making them!

I made the background by just random stamping the images onto the cs then using my inks to add some color with both sponges and brushes. I then layered things up and mounted them onto the base card. Along the side I added some Pure Bubbles and Bling stick ons. IRL this is more brown in color not sure why it has the purple cast to it in the picture.

Mary-Jo has another awesome sketch up for this week over at Techno Stamper blog ! Here is my card made following it :)
The snowman is from the Chin Up set from FCD
I LOVE THIS SNOWMAN! LOL and I went with orange Copics and Orange Metallic Sakura pens for coloring him in. Layered on gold and white papers and added some really glittery gold ribbon behind the layers! I was quite pleased with this card!

Here is my sample of the MOJO64 Sketch this week. I got this new set from FCD called Clearly Time and I really like it! I stamped multiple stamps from the set and then crinkled it up and smoothed out some to run my Distress Ink over it to give it an aged look. I used my Sakura pen to add the white dots both on the black and also in and around the flourishes on the multi-stamped piece.
I cut around the Santa using my Slice and cut a mat for it also. I colored Santa using my Copic Markers and Saukura pens. Then I layered it onto green cs that I had cuttlebugged and swiped with my white inkpad. Added the ribbon across center before adhering it and then added a snip of ribbon to the santa panel itself using this green clippy thing I folded over to hold the ribbon.
Have a great day.

This is another of my non traditional color cards for the holidays and I enjoyed playing with the different tools to make it. Hope you enjoy it also!

I colored the chic with my Copic Markers and then layered it on a scalloped circle of basic Grey Paper. Added the flower pieces and some ribbon to finish the card off.
Inside it says "boy were we stupid or what!" LOL

I had submitted some work to Not Just Stamping and I am happy to announce that I was including in the December 2008 Issue#11. There is a contest there under the Pretty Posies section and that is where you will find my card. This is an online publication so unless you are a subscriber you won't be able to see it...sorry. Each issue is full of wonderful art with details on how it was done, new ideas, featured things and more! Give it a try if you are looking for some great inspiration!
If you are a subscriber I would be thrilled if you would give my card a look see and perhaps your vote too if you deem it worthy!
thanks for stopping by today - hope to be back later with a card to share.
