A Very Trendy Holiday ~ Woodland Animals

I just think these little "critters" are so cute from Lawn Fawn, and after taking the Online copic class, I can do a better job of coloring them, so I pulled out this "Winter Bunny" on the sled and have him heading down the slope!
This card is for a Stamp Nation class:  A Very Trendy Holiday!

A Very Trendy Holiday ~ using Metallics

My metallic is the Liquid Platinum EP by Rangers...
I sponged on some Distress Ink for the sky, then because I forgot I wanted to add stars, I added them afterwards and it actually worked out okay (phew!)
That cute little tree and sentiment are from Paper Smooches "Merry Motifs" I colored the tree with copics.

I spent most of the day in the gym watching Lily's VB end of season tournament.  They played for the championship and sadly lost, but it was a very close game!
 

A Very Trendy Holiday Geometric Style!

This time I was inspired by Tracey from In My Creative Opinion
 
 
I used the PTI Autumn Pattern Pieces in pure poppy and new leaf and added a strip of the same paper to the top and bottom.  Pretty simple and easy!
Thanks for the inspiration Tracey!

Our Topping option is "WASHI TAPE" OR...

You can go with "ANYTHING GOES!"

Make It Monday ~ Faux Stained Glass

Faux Stained Glass is the technique for this week's MIM
demonstrated by none other than Betsy Veldman!
I used the Shakers & sprinkles dies to make the shaker. 
The stamps are from Tremendous Treats Birthday.  After coloring the sky with the copics, I put a little bit of the blender solution onto a rag and dabbed it over the sky to get rid of the streaks, but also to give the illusion of clouds...
Thanks for taking a look!
Heart Hugs!
