Holiday Spirit Challenge at Aurora Wings

Happy Monday! It's time for the last challenge of 2018 at the Aurora Wings challenge blog. The holiday are upon us and the theme for this challenge is "Holiday Spirit". There are so many digis in the Aurora Wing catalog that you can use for this challenge, I don't know how you'll be able to pick one, so do two or three!! I used Poinsettia Sprite:

I used Copics to colour the image (reds R59, R29-24 & greens G29, G28, G17, G05, YG06). I layered a doily and some cheesecloth on Stampin' Up DP, and finished it off with some flowers and other embellies. My senitment stamp is from SU.

Granger

Happy Monday! It's Rubbernecker Monday around here this week, so here is a card I made with the cute little owl stamp "Granger". I also used a few die sets to make my card. Links for every Rubbernecker product I used will be listed at the bottom of my post.


I used the Nested Rounded corner rectangle dies to create the base for my card as well as the mats. The Nested Banner dies were used to create the base for the sentiment, which is from the Coffee Blanket clear stamp set. The "Granger" stamp is red rubber. I coloured the image with Copics.

I've listed my products below and linked them, so all you have to do is click on it and will take you to the proper page:

Once Upon A Dream... or a Nightmare


It's time for a new challenge at Aurora Wings! This challenge theme is Once Upon a Dream... or a Nightmare. I went with Dream. Halloween is not even on my radar this year, and I'm probably going to regret not being prepared. Also, it's been horribly cold and snowing since September 12, so my mind and body are in Winter mode. We totally skipped over Fall here. 

For my Dream project, I used the image "Clara", obviously inspired by the Alexandre Dumas version of The Nutcracker, and literally about a dream young Clara has on Christmas Eve about a battle between an army of gingerbread soldiers and mice, and the Nutcracker who leads the gingerbread army and transforms into a handsome prince. 


I kept the card white and light, using a snowfall embossing folder on the card base, and a black on white mat for the image. I coloured the image with Copics, and used some ruffled lace, pink lace, and cheesecloth under the mat. I finished it off with small star die cuts made from silver glitter paper, along with some clear rhinestones.  

Head over to the challenge blog, if you haven't been there already, and check out my teammates other creations. They are really amazing, and there is a nice mix of Dream vs. Nightmare!
