DT Day with Luciana


Remember last DT Day I showed my first 2014 Christmas Card? If you missed it, you can check it here. After that something hit me: is it necessary to make all Xmas decoration red and green? Of course not!

My cards this year will be all very CAS (clean and simple), so I can dedicate my time all for coloring (which I love most) and I'll have a lot of fun choosing non traditional colors.






What about you: are you making and sending Christmas cards yet?
Which colors are your favorites for it?

Don't forget to visit the Meljen's Designs Shop and check all gourgeous Holidays images Melissa created for us. There's a 50% shop sale through Dec 15th!

DT Day with Sue

It is that time of month again! My DT Day!
I fell in love with the Snow Bunny image and knew I had to use it soon and seeing that it is cold enough for snow, it just seemed fitting!
I started off by colouring the bunny with Copic markers and then masking it with inks.
I love how this adds a great background! Then I added white highlights and adhered it to patterned papers and added a sheer organza ribbon.

Have a look at the Shop and all the new images!

and join us every month at our Challenge blog! 

Thanks for looking!

November DT Inspiration with Susan

So, today is my inspiration post at Meljen's Designs. I have been wanting to try this creation for a while now and when I decided which image I was going to use this month I decided that this was the image to use for this:








So, I think they are classifying this as a card, but I'm going with a Christmas Decoration LOL!! I didn't add a sentiment and the gifts are all glued down, so there is really no way to fold this up and put it in an envelope. For that... I think it justifies calling it a Christmas Decoration! I'm trying to decide if I should keep it and put it out at Christmas or if I should give it as a gift... to my mother or something! I'm just not sure! Anyway!!  I used Christmas Tree which you can find at the Meljen's Designs Shop. I LOVE this image! I think I use it every year LOL I just LOVE to decoupage it!!  It is perfect! I decoupaged each layer of the tree and then the gifts. I have inked everything in Tea Dye ink. I used a bunch of random Christmas paper scraps from last year to create this. I used ribbon around each gift. I layered the snowflake dies.. those are Sizzlits. I also added a small snowflake corner.. I believe that is Memory Box, but I'm not 100% sure. I also added a Holly corner that is sort of hidden behind the square gift at the bottom. There are also two snowflake border die cuts.. I know that those are Memory Box. I added white pearls to the large layered snowflake centers. I added small gems on some parts of the snowflake corner and border dies. The star on the tree and the ornaments have some Stickles on them and the lights have some Diamond Glaze on them. Hard to see that in the photos. I distressed the layers of paper on the bottom and inked the dies and the paper around the image. The image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol  And I think that is about it! It took me 2 days to make this... well... that isn't counting the coloring and decoupaging.. with that I would say 3 days. It was really fun to make though! I doubt I will do another though!!

DT Crafting Vicky - Ice Skates

Hello!  It's the end of November and it's the perfect time to share with you a little Christmas card.

For this card I used a great image called Ice Skates
Here's my card in non traditional colors.
I really wanted the skate to have the center stage on this card.  So I used it on a wreath :)

Here's a closer look at the digi that I barely colored with my copics.
If you want to see the details of this come over to my blog :)

I hope you have a fabulous crafty Friday and weekend!!!

Hugs
