CDACPC6- Polar Bear

Here's my 3rd entry for this round of the CDAC  progressive challenge. This little guy is from Designed 2 Delight. I love this bear, I mean how cute is he? Part of the challenge was to snow two cards up, so this is the 2nd. of my snow cards. I used Aleene's Glitter Snow on the icicles and under the bear. Then, because I had already added Viva Pearl Pen to the snow drops around the bear, I decided to paint over my snow with Yasutomo pearl paint to tie them all together. Love how it turned out! I'm tellin' you this Christmas card making brings out the best in us card crafters! Today is my B-Day and a friend and I are going to the big city of Eau Claire, WI. to have a bite to eat and then go out to
 Picture This for a Copics class. For me this is the ultimate in Birthday fun! I am offically a Senior citizin today. AARP would tell you it's a good thing but I think I'll let the jury stay out a while longer on that one, LOL!
I added this close-up so you can see the snow better in case you'd like to try this technique. It's very pretty on the actual card. My photo taking ahhhhhh....................not so much!
Here's the elements I used on this card.
Stamps- Polar Bear by Designed 2 Delight, sentiment by Outlines Stamps
Paper- solid CS from my stash, DP from DCWV's Homemade Christmas stack
Dies- Spellbinders Beaded Ovals, icicle LR0135, flourish LR0116 by Marianne Creatables and Tropical Flourish B127 by  Cheery Lynn Designs
Ribbon, brad, pearls,  & Candi's, all from my stash

CDACPC6- Cabin

Here's my 2nd. entry for the CDAC challenge I'm not sure if this cabin is supposed to be in the winter time of just out in a field, so I chose to make my winter and add some snow here and there. This digital image is from Ginger Loft. One of the many Artist's who donate their art so CDAC can keep these wonderful challenges going. Park of the challenge this time was to try & make two of the projects with snow. I have this one and one more to add to my blog tonight or tomorrow morning. This one has Liquid Applique' with glitter added to it when it was wet and then heat setting it. It doesn't show very well in the photo, but it makes the snow sparkle and soooooo pretty!!

Here's the elements used in this card.
Stamps- Cabin by Ginger Loft, sentiment is Holiday Ticket by Raindrop Echo over at Whimsy Stamps
Paper- DP is by Moxxie called Through the Woods and the solid CS is from my stash (everybody has one)
Dies- tree by Marianne Design, LR0136. I think this link is in Dutch, but you can look at what she has to offer. Creative Hdieaway in Medford carrys this product.
Stickles- Lime Green & Star Dust
Sheer ribbon, jewelry finding, pearl brad, snowflake ribbon, all from my stash.
Copics used- C1, C5, B0000, YG61, YG67, E17, E19
Hope you enjoyed this card.

Here's my first entry for the 6th and final round of this progressive challenge over at CDAC. They will continue on starting with round 7 but it will be a new challenge, and I'm assuming a new prize. I am so late getting my cards done this time around, but I can squeak in three I think. Then I think I'm done with challenges until after Christmas. I am having Thanksgiving here at my house and need to get ready for it and  get out all my Christmas pretties and get ready for Santa.
I love this pretty image of candles from Daisy Doodles. I did see on this web-site that it is preferred to leave the copyright symbol somewhere that can be seen. I neglected to read this before I desecrated the image by cutting it out. Sorry to the Artist :-( .I wanted to pop up the candles to make them the focal point of my card, so for the boo boo I am to be flogged I guess. LOL
 I love how this card turned out. Traditional colors, beautiful image, lots of glitter, sparkly braid, shiny rhinestones, I mean what more could you ask for? :-)

Here's the elements I used in this card.
Stamps- Digital Candles by Daisy Doodles, sentiment from the Crissy Armstrong "Peace on Earth" set at Whimsy Stamps
Paper- White, kraft, and card base from my stash, DP from DCWV "Holiday Collection" Christmas stack
Spellbinders- Fancy Tags Two
Ribbon, rhinestones, & fancy corner stick on, are from my stash
