"Mo's Digital Pencil" Challenge #10

The challenge was a Thank You card. I used Mo's Snowman again. I just love him!! He is stamped with Momento's black on white Cryogen. He and the background is cut from Nestablilities Labels Two. He is colored with Copics and Spica Glitter Pens. I added glitter to his body and his hat's fluffy ball has Craft Lounge Sparkly White on it. The base of the snow has Flower Soft Polar White to give the appearance of real snow. The DP is Basic Grey. The saying is computer generated.

Snowman body B0000
Nose Spica Orange
Hat, Scarf, & Gloves G28, BG18
Arms Sepia Multiliner

Christmas Decoration

This is a decoration for our 5th Wheel trailer. The tree is Making Memories chipboard. I don't know the manufacturer of the DP. The tree is distressed with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint and glitzed up with foil stars and gemstones. I sprayed the branches of the tree with Tattered Angels Gold Shimmer Mist. I made the bow with a Bow Easy.

Stampscapes Birthday Card

I created this card for one of my son's birthday. The trees are Stampscapes from the Nature Sheet 1 and are stamped with Adirondack's Bottle and Meadow. Glossy paper was used for the trees. I intentionally made a some trees lean because in a forest of pines they do not all stand straight. I think it lends to a more realistic look. Some of the pines have stickles on them to give dimension and sparkle. The greeting is Sweet Stamps. The scene was die cut from Stampin Up's 'Top Note'. I used CB's Snowflakes on white cardstock under the Top Note.

This card is thanks to Sandy Hulsart. She is so good at stampscapes!! The finished size is 5 1/2"x 4 1/4".

Gift Bag for Stamp Club/Mo's Challenge 12/8/09

I also believe this meets the requirements for this recent Mo's Challenge!! It will be for my sister's Christmas gift!! This was a challenge given at the November Stamp Club meeting to decorate this unusual color of a bag. The snowman is a Mo's Digital image which I colored with Copics. His hat, scarf and mittens are colored with G29 and YR24. He is in a Labels Three nestie. I airbrushed the background with B000 before removing the nestie. I used Flower Soft Polar White on the snow. The ball of the snowman's hat has Sparkly Fluff by Craft Lounge to give a more real look to it. I used Marvy's SnowMarker on the snowflakes. The greeting is Inkadinkado. I also sprayed the background of the nestie and the greeting with Glimmer Mist Pearl. The picture doesn't do the bag justice.

The ornament was created from a circle punch. The glitter is Art Institute. My very supportive husband, suggested the ornament. The swirls are Quickutz. The DP is Basic Grey.

Card for a Friend

I needed this card in a hurry. I had been going thru my 'stash' and I found this kit from Bazzill. I decided it worked for a quick card. The greeting I am not sure of, I think it is Stampendous. The reason I am not sure is because I have recently begun to unmount all my wood mounted stamps. I need to lighten the load when travelling in our RV. The ink is SU's pigment, Chocolate Chip and it is embossed with Rangers Rainbow Sparkle Powder. The flowers were airbrushed with Copics YG03 and YG25. The finished size is 5 7/8" square.
