OSAAT 'Emboss it'

Wow where did that week go ??  Ive spent most of my week lying on the sofa poorly :O(   I am feeling a little bit better now. So i am hoping that i am now on that road to recovery...

Well as i said its been a week since my last blog post. So that means its time for another challenge over at One Stitch At A Time :O)

This week we have been asked to 'Emboss It' .. So thats heat or dry embossing..

The sponsor is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps with a $10 coupon to spend

Don't forget you get chance to win $5 each and every week from now on.. All you have to do is to use a Stitchy Bear Digital Stamp on your creation.
Then put #3 after your name ( so we dont miss it) and you can be our weekly winner........... So thats 2 chances to win each week :O)

This week i got to work with Sylvie...I chose Grace   Oh my what a beautiful image to work with.... I will deffinately be using her again.

To make my card . I coloured the image with Promarkers. Then added fluffy stuffy to the fur on her hood. When it was fully dry and settelled i added some stickles too.. I added tiny blue gems to the centre of the snowflakes.  I backed the image onto  a dark blue card that i had run through my Big Shot with my snowflakes folder.. I then distressed the edges and ran over some of the snowflakes with my nail file.. Yes i use a nail file to distress things lol. My ribbon was from my stash and i was amazed how close a match it was to the colour i chose for Grace's coat. The sentiment was from Craftwork cards.

Well thats it from me this time ... yes short and sweet ;O)
Hope to see your gorgeous creations over at the OSAAT challenge blog for our 'emboss it' challenge.  You have to be in it to win it . afterall ;O)

I also got to work with Sylvie and used her T rex smile !! I know another boy inspired creation.. I adore this image. How fantastic would it be turned into a party invite for your little dinosaur ?

To create this card i printed t rex out A5 size. Then i attatched it to my card blank and cut out the shape again Just to make sure that the card opened ok ;O)
To the eyes i added some glossy accents to make the eyes abit more glassy  Oooh i hope Taylor asks for dinosaur invites when he is older :O)

That was it ............a Good Luck card for a male :O)

I also made a card for this weeks mini Newsletter 'Meet a Creator' who was Bonna from 'Kelley's Kids'.
To make this card.I coloured my image with Promarkers,then added glossy accents to the bird and stickles to her wings. Ooh i used a gold Pen for her Halo. I backed the image with cream and dark brown card then placed it onto a DP and then a 6x6 Scalloped card blank.
To make my flower embellishment i used my Scor-pal and a button for the centre of the flower. I then used a brown flower button in the opposite corner to create balance..
I can see this card being made in LOTS of different colours ! Its such a sweeet image !!

Heres my DT card for this week

I wanted to make the card as simple as i could to show off the gorgeous image. I printed 2 of the image then layered up her hat. I added some black and white ribbon to a black card blank. Then the image . Of course it needed abit of bling so i gave it a few gems. Then those sweet bows with pearls  attatched.  I added a white square to the inside of the card so that a message could be wrote.
