inky impressions challenge - sparkle!

hello everyone, it's time for another inky impressions challenge, this weeks theme is sparkle! :)  during christmas it's so easy to make something sparkly.  here's what i made...

it's a lovely candle cover, i used the cupcakes and candy factory background digi stamp, i colored it with my copic markers and added glossy accents on the lollipops and cherries, and puffy paint for the cupcake, snowtex for the roof and sidewalk, and red glitter for the sprinkles on the cupcakes,  it tuned out very dimensional.  on the side i used the tim holz snowflake edger and crusted it with glitter glue and diamond dust, very sparkly! 

i hope you like this project, i would like to enter this project in the following challenges:

pink tilda christmas

hello!  i havent made a tilda card in awhile, but i really wanted to use my new christmas tildas, and just havent gotten a chance, the christmas season has kept me so busy!  here's the one that ive made, hope you like it! :)

it's so shabby chic and pretty! i colored my tilda's with my distress markers, ive really focused on getting better at this, watercolor is not one of my strong points but i think that i nailed it on this one! :)  i used my tim holtz snowflake edger and painted them blue then added stampendous embossing enamel to the flakes, i love this stuff!  i also made a frame with my spellbinders and painted them then dipped it into some diamond dust crystals,  the stars are a wooden star diecuts that i covered with paper and used my picket fence on the edge.

here's a close up of my tildas!

i would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

tilda's town - freezing season
magnolia licious - pink christmas

inky impressions challenge use something old

hello everyone! it's time for another inky impressions challenge!  this weeks theme is "use something old"  i love to use old things in my cards, the more vintage and shabby chic the better! :) here's my card for this week.

for my something old i used vintage buttons from my button collection, lace, and colored my stamped image in sepia tones.  the stamp that i used is MarLeigha's Ornament Dance which is probably one of my favorite's from inky impressions!  i found some 7 gypsy's sugar plum paper from my local stamping store and HAD to use it for this card.  i made a swooping pocket for the card instead of a regular criss cross card, which i thought it made it look even more unique and vintage.  i added  lot's of pearl swirls and all sorts of embellies from silk ribbon roses, cameos, flat backed pearls, large vintage-y paper flowers.

here's a close up of my image.  i LOVE the way it turned out. :)

inky impressions challenge - snow

hello everyone it's time for another inky impressions challenge, this weeks theme is - winter or snow! i really had a blast with this theme, here it is

for this card i printed my digital stamp Marisa's Sleigh Ride onto watercolor paper, ironed it to set my printers ink, and used my tim holtz markers to paint Marisa.   for the large snowflake that i mounted Marisa on is just cut out of craft paper and painted with acrylic paints, then mounted onto a piece of basic grey white and cream lace patterned paper and cut out to make the snowflake stand out.  i added some i am roses flowers in to corner, silver swirls from hobby lobby, snowflake lace from the tin tiara on etsy, and a "warm wishes" sentiment to the corner.

 here's a close up of Marisa's Sleigh Ride and you can really see the details of the hand painted snowflake background i sponged where she would be riding so she would look out of place and flicked with sliver paint after i finished with all it's painting for just a little christmas sparkle! :)

i hope you like this project and check out inky impressions!
