Tissue Box Cover

After seeing Beth's Tissue Box at Beth-A-Palooza I decided to make one for me. The tutorial on how to make this box is at Splitcoaststampers. You can find it  here.  To make the layers I inked the Cuttlebug folders with a brayer,  I used CTMH ink in Bamboo on white cardstock.  For the side of the lid I used the organic flourish for the top the Swirls and the side  the Victoria folder.  I love the "bisque" look of this technique.  I only had white pearls, so I colored the pearls with my BIC markers to match, I used Tiki Hut Tan (cute name).

More Popcorn the Bear A Christmas Wish

I used Prismacolors and Mineral Spirits to color the above image.  The rest I used Bic Markers and Adirondack.

Gingerbread Card

This is an accordion card.  I used the Gingerbread cartridge and Winter Frolic for the phrase.
I made this card for the challenge at BBTB2.  The challenge is to make a project using the gingerbread man from the Just Because Cards cartridge, or any other gingerbread man from any other cartridge.  since I hadn't used the Gingerbread cartridge that's the one I chose.

Christmas Cards

I made this cards for some of my coworkers and friends at school.  I used the Create a Critter Cartridge.  I tried to keep it very simple.  There is no stamping or inking.  I just used a white pen to add highlights and a rhinestone in the middle of the O.  They are A2 cards.
