Joy  2014
Welcome to The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and I want to thank everyone that played around with us last challenge we had a wonderful time and seen all kinds of beautiful card so I do hope you will play a long with us again this time and the twist is “First day of Winter and that is Dec 21”! So thought this would be the perfect card to make and I have been wanting to make it and I have someone special I want to give it too. The die I used are from Cherry Lyn Birch tree with cute critters B370, Christmas Knick Knacks B331, Impression Obsession Tree (small) 2147-E. Our sponsor for the month of December is:*/Annelogo.PNG
Anne’s Digital Designs.

It is the inside of the card. The card is called a 3 step card it is one the Norma made at her blog From My Craft Room. If you have not seen some of Norma’s card you much stop by and see some of her creations. If you click on the 3 step card that will take you to her blog and to the tutorial Norma did for everyone. I found it much easier to print out the directions she has in red 3 Step Card Template PDF file and click on that and you can print the template out and also it will let you save it.

Here I have the card open all the way. The J-O-Y letter are from a pack of letters I already had.

What is so nice is that it folds together perfectly. Used Aleene’s Turn Snow., Twinklets diamond dust to make things sparkle. Used Copic opaque white so it looked like it was snowing. For the ice rink I used Versa Mark Pen and added clear embossing power and heat set the power and it gave a clear look like ice.

I cut the image out. I found this paper I thought would work really well with the image and I’m sorry I cannot tell you where it is from. It was loss in the container with all my Christmas paper and it had a piece that matched with all these little snowman all around it.

As far as my card it is not going to help it you like anything, the stamps I have had forever and I have a LOT of snowman saying but when I took them off (years ago) the wood I did not mark down who made the stamps (who new them I was going to have a blog) but now I do.

Here is the link you need so you do not need to go looking for it.

I’m not good at doing CAS cards but I did want to see if I could do it and I think I pretty much did!

HomeMade, Eat Turkey 2014  l
The paper is from Die Cuts with a View (DCWV) Nana’s Kitchen stack. The sentiment was part of the stack. The spellbinder used to cut out the Rooster is called curved rectangles. I do have to tell you I keep wanting to call the Rooster a Chicken, sorry!

HomeMade, Eat Turkey 2014  f
Added several glitter dots. Now hope easy is that?

HomeMade, Eat Turkey 2014  i
My poor inside, used brilliance ink color orange and several glitter dots but I had to write “EAT TURKEY”, you know how at Thanksgiving time they tell you to eat BEEF, I thought if it said EAT TURKEY that would be funny, well what you think?

HomeMade, Eat Turkey 2014  m
These are the copic markers I used to color my Rooster. I wanted to share with you what I did to the ground. I asked my friend (he like to do woodworking to save me some saw dust) and what can I say, a little silly question but he did. So I took the saw dust and mixed with some other stuff I had to make it look like what Roosters would walk in (I think) so this is what I got. Used some diamond glaze to hold everything down and this it what it looks like. It you add just a touch of greens inks it kind of looks like grass.

Here is the close up of the Rooster all colored up.

Wonderful time of the year!

Wonderful time of the year 2014
O do hope you are having a wonderful week end. I want to share my card with you that I made for The Progressive Freebie Group it is listed under Challenges at the top of the Main Page then
you will need to register to play. By sending us an email to with your full name and email address and we will make sure you get your free image. Once you register and get your image and make a card using that image that you are sent each and every month (you will get the image the first of every month) so watch out for your junk mail or something that looks a little different it might be the image and it will come from a different artist each month. You will have a hold month to make your card but remember if you do NOT make a card you will NOT get the next month image. So you need to be on top of this each month. For this month the image is from Simple Betty Stamps she is called Tangled Wednesday.

the SCACD Holiday Inspiration Day

Winter Guardian 2014
Today is a special day at SCACD it is A Holiday Inspiration Day and several of us got together and thought we would use some of the amazing digital images Susana has in her store that the artist Carmen Medlin has done. The image I have is called Winter Guardian. When I seen this one I just fell in love with her but there are several I really love. Plus she is having a SALE going on right now. So stop by SCACD store and see what is going on. Susana also has a Blog with all kinds of inspiration on it.

Spellbinder grand nestabilities scalloped, I cut out several of the sizes. Folded them in half. The paper was from my stash. This is really not a card it opens up as you will see and you can hang it on the wall. I explain about the stickers below but I used 3 trees and 5 gifts and several of the stars.

I used some Brilliance ink color white around the edges.

Here are some little closer pictures of the image. I added pear pen color ice white to the background. Some flower gems in blue to the trees. Very tiny white pearls to the button of her dress. I do hope you can see that it is a little 3D, everything is raised. I colored my image first and them I added the crystal fine glitter until it was smooth and them colored a little over what I already colored.
