Be Inspired Challenge Final Take

awwww... this is my final project based on a Be Inspired Challenge... I do love these challenges, but don't worry The Alley Ways Stamps has something new coming in the new year so be on the look out!

I used the Jolly Holiday Stamp Set to create this little cutie!  To start I used spray mist and made swish marks with a paintbrush.  I then stamped the sled and sentiment and colored in with various copics.  The penguin was stamped on seperate cardstock, colored and fussy cut.  Viola!  I hope to see your creations for this final BIC!!!!

I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge: Winter Inspiration

Happy Crafting!

Hey Chickie! Outside and In...

Hello!  Today I have a super cute and fun little card to share using the new Chick Magnet Stamp Set...

And I couldn't leave this card looking like that, so I added this to the inside...

bwahahaha!  I crack myself up... some has to!  Anywho, I started this card by adhering to colored cardstocks together.  I then die cut my circle, and die cutted a fancy circle frame and adhered it all together.  Next I went and stamped the little worm images using the similar colored ink to the cardstock colors.  The little chick was stamped on separate cardstock adhered together and then cut out so the two sides would match up.  I did the same with the paper hat.  Last I stamped the sentiment through the window and viola!  I super cute and fun was to say hi!

I am adding this to the following challenge:
