All That Scraps Wednesdays Challenge

All That Scraps Wednesdays Challenge is here again.  Today's creations are for New Year's ideas.  I love to serve homemade goodies at our party.  So I made chocolate chip cookies and placed them in my antique baking pan with a candle.  I made a sign using C.C. Designs "Cookie Emma", Copics, and Spellbinder's Labels 13.  Fun and perfect way to serve refreshments.  Hope you stop by the blog and see what all the other designers have made.  May you have a blessed New Year!

All That Scraps Wednesdays Challenge

Inspired by a song, "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas", I created this card for All That Scraps Wednesdays Challenge.  I used C.C. Design stamp, Spellbinders Snowflakes, Robin's Nest "Winter Retreat Snowflake" cardstock, and of course my Copics.  To create cut/emboss snowflakes.  Color images and snowflakes with Copics.  Use Spica pens to embellish.  Layer and assemble card.  Hope you get inspired to create.

All That Scraps Wednesdays Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today I created this card for All That Scraps Wednesdays Challenge.  The challenge is to create something using Christmas Flowers.  This card was created using Spellbinders Blossom 2, C.C. Designs "Brr Emma" & "Holly & Berry", Fiskars Snowflake embossing plate.  I simply cut/embossed the black cardstock, sanded and attached to a white 6" x 6" card.  Cut/embossed & sanded the flowers.  Attached them together.  Colored the images.  Cut and assembled the card.  Hope you create one for yourself.  Thank you for stopping by.

All That Scraps Wednesdays Challenge

I love to create gifts.  Today I created this crock filled with my homemade hot chocolate.  I filled a bag with hot chocolate, stuffed it into this old (cleaned) crock I found and added the tag.  I created the tag using C.C. Designs "Brr Emma".  I colored her with my Copics, cut her out, and layered her onto Spellbinders Labels 4 die.  Inked the edges and tied her on to the crock with twine.   What a perfect way to share something you made.  I hope you get creating some great gifts of your own.  Need some inspiration.  Hop on over to the All That Scraps Wednesdays Challenge to see all the other wonderful creations.
