Special Delivery

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday – hope you’re having a great week! I’m sharing a project I created yesterday that is not a DT inspiration project. Can you believe that?! It doesn’t happen very often because I’m usually busy creating for my design teams. I recently re-joined The Outlawz Challenges after being MIA for several years and will be playing in some of the challenges there. You ought to check them out – lots of fun going on!

One of the challenges I’m playing in is the Freebie/Progressive Challenge and I received the LeAnn’s World 101 Daisy digital stamp to create with. Nice perk, huh?! I created a super cute Christmas card featuring the adorable Daisy stringing her Christmas tree lights, and lots of layers and texture.


I colored the image with Studio 71 alcohol markers and cut it with a dotted rectangle die which I layered on a slightly larger red glitter dotted rectangle die cut. I used fun green/white polka dot and red/white striped papers, along with a strip of white corrugated paper, all from Canvas Corp. I used a Marvy snow marker on her hat and Glossy Accents on the tree lights and ornaments. I tied some green bamboo cord diagonally on the image, and added some Candi Minis. I finished the front with a sentiment from the Tim Holtz idea-ology festive ephemera pack.


I embellished the inside panel with more of the red/white striped paper and a narrow strip of plain red paper (also from Canvas Corp), and stamped the Christmas sentiment from Unity in green ink.


One more look from an angle so you can see all the layers and texture. What a fun image to work with – she’s absolutely adorable!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
