Good Morning!!

Today I am using Ching Chou Kuik's 'Toucan' at Sweet Pea Stamps

I colored it with copic markers

I did the exact opposite of a middle stairstep card and then it looked kinda like a shadow box

The leaves are a framelit from Stampin' Up, the diecut butterflies are from SU also, and the flowers are a stamp and matching punch, also from SU

I added glossy effects to the beak and stickles to the flowers.

Welcome to the Sweet Pea Stamps blog hop.
 Each of our wonderful designers have come up with creative ways to use a non-Christmas themed image to create a Christmas themed project! We hope to inspire you to work out of the box for each and every holiday with images you might not consider when crafting.

Please visit each of our talented team members' blogs and leave a little love - a comment on every hop post will enter you into a drawing for a $20 gift code to the Sweet Pea Stamps store! As an added bit of fun share the hop on Facebook tagging Sweet Pea Stamps for a chance for a $10 gift code to the Sweet Pea Stamps store! Winners will be chosen around the first of next week.

Here's my project using Marion Teunissen's 'Ice Queen'

It's a card and a box

When you open it,  you can put your gift inside the box and add your sentiment, I put some candy inside mine
I colored my image with prisma colored pencils, I added diamond dust on her lapel, and stickles in various places. The snowflake flowers are a stamp and a matching punch from Stampin' Up. The snowflakes are sequins.

Lovee Enchantress

Loving these Ethereal Enchantresses!
Here's Lovee.
I made an easel card out of a spellbinder diecut, colored her with copics.
The butterflies and flowers and heart are SU , I cut her out and popped her up on dimensional dots and my DP had a band of a different color so she had something to sit on. She has such a sweet face and Heather put in an earring and a bracelet and they got pink rhinestones, stickles in various spots, glossy accents on her lips

Sweet Pea Stamps

Sweet Pea Stamps has a wide variety of digital images from different very talented artists for your every need

I made an envelope card using Concetta Kilmer's 'Mr and Mrs Christmas Sweets'
Isn't this sweet? These are very addicting, all it takes is one 12" x 12" paper and just folding.

I added glossy accents to most of the candies.

It opens like this and you can put your sentiment, tickets, money, or
 what-ever-else you desire inside.

The back even has pockets that you can use too!

Check out my tutorial

I made this card using Artist Heather's at Lacy Sunshine Stamps
 new digital image called 'Snow Bunny Ethereal Enchantress'

I really liked the center stairstep and I thought 'WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF I REVERSED IT?!' So I did and this is what it looks like, insteadd of the two side panels recessed, the middle is. You can find my tut HERE

The challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers is THINK PINK and I have used Charity Dauenhauer's 'Forgiven'
I must admit, this was very challenging to color, although Pink is one of my fav colors, I started thinking 'DID I PUT TOO MUCH PINK?!'
However, when I started adding other colors in, it looked OK!
