A Cutie Christmas



It's week #7 for Sparkle's Christmas card challenge and last week she challenged us to use liquid applique on our cards. Here are my two made with a couple darling image RAKs. Don't forget to check out Sparkle's Blog for the challenge and her cards!


I love these little gals, they are so darling. I've been oogling the stamps for a while but still haven't made the leap. One of these days though, I'm just going to have too, lol. I colored them in with CTMH markers and then highlighted a little with my white gel pen before adding the liquid applique. Like Sparkle, I just love this stuff for snow and fluff ^_~. Today I just used it for fluff though :D And you can't tell but all the white snowflakes are punched from glitter white cardstock.



And I realized I had missed a week so I made a couple more and used the challenge for last week to not use any red or green since I had totally spaced it and created red and green themed cards for last week. Aren't these mice darling! Jenn mailed me some super cute images from this line (I can't seem to remember the name, lol), but they are too stinking cute! I used the gamsol magic technique with my colored pencils for coloring them in and did a little outside shading on the first but none on the second just to see the difference. I accidently smudged the sentiment on my second card, but it still came out pretty cute! The challenge for next week is to make your cards square :D Thanks for visiting and enjoy!
