Hi! Today I have the honor of joining along as a guest designer with the tag You're... it! challenge design team. If you have not visited the challenge site, please be sure to stop by to see all the fabulous inspiration and join along with the challenges!

The challenge is to CASE the Featured Artist or use his or her tag design to inspire you to create a design of your own. Shown below is the beautiful tag made by featured artist Jessica Frost -Balls to be inspired by:
Here's my interpretation:
My tag features a die cut chipboard female deer (doe) that I embossed with pretty gold embossing powder. The tag was stamped/heat embossed using PTI snowflake stamps then inked using Distress Inks.
I also made another similar tag featuring a male deer (buck):
Love all the shimmer and shine in the gold embossing powder:

Winter wishes 22

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, November 16, 2017 @ 12:22 AM | , ,

Hi there! Today I'm honored and thrilled to be a guest featured on the Stamps and Stencils challenge blog. The DT has beautiful projects to share ~ please be sure to visit the Stamps and Stencils challenge blog. The current challenge is all about Pastels. Here's my take on the challenge:
To create my card, I inked the background then randomly stenciled snowflakes.  Next, I randomly heat stamped and heat embossed snowflakes. I embellished the card with a pair of die cut ice skates which I painted and stitched up. I topped it off with die cut sprigs and a fancy bow.
I'm joining along with the following challenges: For sketch inspiration, Fab Friday challenge as well as the Simon Says Stamp: Monday challenge where the theme is It's a Stitch Up: (the laces are all stitched up) and
Merry Monday challenge where the theme is Outdoor Activities:
Thank so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ')
