I was soooo excited to use a barrowed 'toy' for this card. Cricut's Hello Kitty cartridge is super cute. Thank you Kathrin for letting me play :) The backing was tricky for me because I didn't want it to distract from the image, but still add to the whole cards look. I came up with a dark blue paper with light grey flourishes and snowflakes, then covered with a snowflake printed vellum.
Cricut cartridges: Hello Kitty cut at 5" Green pieces are colored/blended prisma pencils. Bow and buttons are stickled in Christmas Red and Patina green, antlers and nose have diamond glaze over top of prisma pencils to add a little dimension.
Scallop edge cut using photo corner side by side, 2 colors layered, with fun flower lace strip over top.
Misc: Prima, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, heart brad

Cricut cartridges used: Solutions: Christmas Noel, Joys of the Season, Mini Monograms, Opposites Attract
Cuttlebug folders used: A2: Christmas Ornaments, Winter House, Swiss Dots. Border: Just My Type
Misc: Ribbon, Martha Stewart Leaf punch, yarn crochet to cover handle.
Repeat from previous post with a bit of new information: Christmas Ornaments and Border: Just My Type Cuttlebug folder inked with Versamark pad, then heat embossed with Blue Tinsel powder. Winter House also inked with Versamark pad, then heat embossed with Kaleidoscope powder. The town is colored using prismacolor pencils and blended gently with odorless paint thinner. Snowy bottom was flocked in white, then applied a layer of white pigment ink over top and clear embossing powder. The snowy texture is the result. Snowflake on top of can is cut from Cricut Noel, heat embossed with Silver and Kaleidoscope powder. Joy over top of snowflake is cut from Cricut Opposites Attract, all centered in a scalloped ring cut from Mini Monograms.

Be sure to stop by JCBC and post your take on this challenge. We've got some fun prize giveaways this month so be sure to check in on us often! Have a wonderful holiday~
Challenge 7, created by Mada, was a really fun sketch. I love the simplicity of the sketch. You can dress it up or keep it simple and it will still look great! Here is my take for a Birthday card using my favorite Mary Engelbreit papers and a sticker. I feel like this is totally cheating but it worked too perfectly!
Cuttlebug embossing folders used: Borders: Frills
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo with Brown Staz On ink
Paper: Bazzil cardstock and Me And My Big Ideas
Flowers and leaves are Primas with rhinestone brad.
Last week, Challenge 8 was to alter something using anything cuttlebug. I chose to alter a paint can for the holidays. I'm not sure if this is finished yet. I plan to add a cut from the Cricut Christmas Solutions cartridge (Santa with reindeer flying over the town.) I will have to post a final results after I toy with it a bit more. Christmas Ornaments folder was inked with Versamark pad, then heat embossed with Blue Tinsel powder. Winter House was also inked with Versamark pad, then heat embossed with Kaleidoscope powder. The town is colored using prismacolor pencils and blended gently with odorless paint thinner. Snowy bottom was flocked in white, then applied a layer of white pigment ink over top and clear embossing powder. The snowy texture is the result. This was totally an accident but I love how it looks now (thankfully)! Thanks for looking!
