July's Challenge Me Card swap

For was to use purple, a patterned paper and a stamped I won a Tilda stamp on ebay and decided to go with that for the stamped image. I also used my cuttlebug for the embossing and used some rhinestones for some bling!

Another tag swap..Christmas-Child Inspired

For this one I also cut the tag at 3.5 and I also used my doodlecharm cart for the reindeer. I used some souffle pens for the black eyes (although they came out more gray) and used my cuttlebug for the snowflake embossing.

Christmas Tag Swap...Red, White, Green (use 2 colors)

I used my cricut to cut the tags at 3.5 inches and then used one of my nestabilities to cut the scalloped circle and used one of my HM stamps..used a prisma marker for the mouse and the other colors, I used glitter pens!

December's ATC swap...

was Christmas themed!! I found this clear stamp (the trees) at my LSS for a dollar and had to have it..LOL! I attempted to watercolor it..although I am not sure if I did it correctly or not..maybe someday I will actually learn how to do it but for me, I just took my watercolor pencil, outlined the tree then took my H2O pen and pulled the color in..then I took another one of my border punches (the star one) and mounted the stamped image on it then colored in some ornaments with the glitter pens (which I got awhile ago at Sam's for 19.99 and love them) and I also wrote "Happy Holidays" on the bottom but the camera isn't showing it..

With this ATC..I have completed the whole swap for the year!! Yay!!

November's ATC swap...

I was on a roll and wanted to get the whole swap finished for the November's theme was picnic..I found this saying online (can't remember where) then I used some studio G clear 1.00 stamps to stamp the little ants and then used jasmine for the photo corners..I used the glitter pens to color in the ants..and added some stickles to the photo corners

October's ATC swap...

Yellow Ribbon Awareness Theme ATC

I am hosting an awareness themed ATC swap and one of the themes I am doing is yellow--support our Troops ribbon..I used the cuttlebug ribbon folder and then used Learning curve to cut the USA out and then some star brads to attach the white part..the striped paper is actually shiny but doesn't really show up on the picture..

ATC--Cricut MB Swap..August's theme

For August's theme we had to use blue, orange and yellow and use either sandals, sunglasses or the sun I think so I came up with this..used the cuttlebug folder to cut the flip flops and feet..used some soufle pens for the toenail polish and then just a Studio G stamp that says I love summer..also used some stickles for on the flip flop...

Red, White, Blue and Black Themed ATC (for the month of July Cricut MB)

We had to use red, white, blue and black for the theme for that months I did a patriotic does say "Born in the USA" but it is hard to see as it is stamped in gold..I also used fibers for the first time..

The flag stamp is from a Studio G was the saying one..
