Paper Playtime Challenge

Here is the card that I am entering in the Paper Playtime Challenge.  The theme for this challenge is Anything Christmas. And I made 90% of my Christmas cards with snowmen. 
I use a Stampin'Up stamp for the snowman and the snowflakes. Then colored in with gel pens.  The snow on the ground is done with Stampin' Up chalk.  The ribbon is from Big Lots.  

Gingerbread Man

I made this card to enter into the Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge.  The challenge was to use the gingerbread man from the Jolly Holiday cartridge.  Here is my card.
I used the gingerbread man from J. H. and cut at 3 inches.  The Santa cap also was on the Jolly Holiday cart.  With the bird.  I cut it at 2.5 inches. I cut several to use on many different characters.  The ribbon came from The Dollar Store.  I made the plate and the cookies from the In My Kitchen cartridge.  The cookies are cut at 1.25 and the plate is at 2 inches.

Her shoes are black.  The card is of two shades of pink.  The pixie dust is  from Cuttle Bug is pink and black iin the middle and pink embossing powder. There are two shades of blue bling flower.
And a black ribbon .

Bottle Swap

I partcipate in a bottle swap that Abby organized. And was it fun.  We filled a two liter bottle with craft items for our partner that we were paired up with.  It was so cool to get things for a fellow crafter.  The hard part was parting with some of the things.  But many of the items I bought doubles.  Here are some pictures of the craft items that I received from my partner. Of course the snowman things were my favortie but the neatest thing that I had never seen was called flower soft.  It is so fun to use. I used it to make several of the cards that I made for Christmas. There was so much in the bottle was better then Christmas. 

Christmas Cards

 This one was made using the cart. Create a Critter for the Panda and the tree. The lights and santa hat was from Joy of the Seasons.
 The wreath is from the Christmas cart. that Gypsy gave us. I took several rectangles and made the door and then added a brad for the door knob the ribbon was addded on with star brads.
I stamped the snowmen with a stamp by Stampin' Up and colored with gel pens and added stickles. I added snowmen, snowflakes, and the think snow buttons and put stickles on to make them bling. I also popdotted up the Christmas tree sticker.
This is also a Stampin' Up stamp. I stamped it and embossed with heat embossing powder then use stickles to write N  EL then stamped the ball again and colored with gel pens.  And added two poinsetta flower sticker. I also use fiskar decorated scissors to cut out the stamp. I use this techinque on both of these cards

These are only a few of the cards that I have made.  I sent several out to California to my mother in law for her use.  Not sure how many I have made but alot.  But enjoyed each and every minute of it.
