Some squiggles inspiration in a set of three christmas atc's

I have made 3 cute little Atc's to share with you today. The image above is Sleigh Ride and is such a fun image (actually they all are hehe) The image below is Snow Fight and is one of the latest christmas digi images available from Squiggle Stamps.

I have used dotty ribbons and gems, some frosty brads, lots of stickles and some punched flowers. The corners of the atc's have been punched and embossed with a corner punch. Then I added some faux stitching.  The image below is Christmas Cats Chorus.

And one last piccy of them all together. Really enjoyed these, they were a bit out of the norm for me, but lots of fun.

Squiggles Challenge is Go Dotty!!

Happy Saturday everyone, hope you are all well. I have my Squiggle Stamps DT card here for you today.  I have used the fabby image called 'All wrapped up'  from the fantastic new christmas images drawn by Evelina Wikberg.  These are all in store now along with lots of other fantastic images for all sorts of occasions.  There are also some freebies and special offers. So what are you waiting for? Head on over there and fill your baskets.
So let's Go Dotty with Squiggle Stamps
I have used some of my new helz cuppleditch papers called festive treats, spellbinders eyelets dies, spotty dotty ribbon and two squiggle images. I have used some stickles on his hat and two green gems. 
I cut out the wee bird house from some christmas kanban card and layered up to make a wee tag to add as an extra embellishment.  I added stickles to the birdhouse to look like a wee layer of snow.
For the base of the card I used some more of the christmas kanban and popped on a wee calendar for 2012
So thanks for popping over and these are the challenges that I am entering with it.

Skullz Boy Squiggle Stamps for a teenager

Here is a card that I made for a teenager in our family.  I used my basic grey papers, some handmade green plain paper for matting and a small piece of black to make the image pop a little.  The ribbon is from some packaging on a shoe box and the letters are from a sheet of dcwv paper.

I have coloured with my Promarkers and have used a Squiggles Digi called Skullz Boy from the Goth Kidz range of images.

I have coloured with my promarkers and have made a wee tatty flower to embellish (for a man so didn't want to go overboard)  The happy birthday sentiment has wee rockets on it.  The papers are from my stash, my chip paper and basic grey and some green to matt with.

Lovey Dovey Christmas Card

I made this card while I was making one of the previous ones, found here.  I had some scraps left and couldn't face throwing them away, so here is the result. I was surprised how well it came out and now I have a lovely christmas card for one of my 'special friends'.
I coloured this cute little lovey dovey digi stamp from Squiggle Stamps with my promarkers and then chalked the edges..
The front was created using the leftover spellbinder die cut vellum. 'Let it Snow'
And fixing it using some heart brads to a small piece of left over card with tweeny flowers on it. I stamped the best friends sentiment and again chalked the edges.
 For the back part of the card I popped strips of paper side by side and put a sentiment on. 'Special' again attached with heart brads.

Tiny Tags for christmas gifts

Good Morning Squiggle Stamps lovers.  I have a wee offering for you today, involving die cut tags (sizzix) some recycled wire edged ribbon and the cutest little toadstool girly you have ever set eyes on.  I have coloured with my promarkers and carefully poked the ribbon through the holes as the ribbon is quite large.

Finally I edged with some pigment chalks.
  I am really pleased with the way these came out as I want to use them for pressies during the winter months (Christmas mainly) and they are so bright and cheery that they are bound to be loved by all. Sorry waffling now, will get on with the post.

I am entering these little tags into the following challenges:-)

I have coloured this brilliant image with my Promarkers. I have layered with some paper made from wee wood flecks, some blue and also some of my old basic greys. The feathers are from my stash and the image is one of the fantastic Halloween images that are available at Squiggle Stamps.

Squiggles Newest Challenge is 'Thanks'

Okay so it's that time again, are you ready for a new Challenge from Squiggle Stamps?
Over at Squiggle Stamps Challenge this fortnight the theme is Thanks, so that encompasses thanks, thank yous, ta and maybe even give thanks. We would love to see all your super creations on this theme and you have until the end of play on the 14th October to link them up.

I have made a card for a male for a change. Like everyone else I never seem to have enough male cards, so this will be one for the pile so to speak.  I have used the marvellous digi from the Dinky Ghoulz series, called Scarecrow Boy and he is superb to colour, especially the pumpkins.

I have coloured with my promarkers and used basic grey papers from quite a while ago, I have to admit that I have hoarded these a little as they are some of my fave male card making papers.  I used some small square gems and some green papermania round gems to finish off the sparkle part and some simple stickers from my stash.

There are THREE prizes this time around so more chances to win and of course if you use a Squiggle Stamps image be it digi or rubber, you will get an extra entry into the end draw as well.
Each of the winners will win a Daisy with Gift and an Oscar with Frame both in Rubber.
So why not pop over to Squiggle Stamps Blog for a wee looky. Or of course you could head over to their wonderful store where there are some new digis and a fantastic christmas release coming on Monday 3rd October, that's tomorrow, can't wait!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges
