Mo's Challenge # 114

Punches and Dies

 We were to use punches, dies, or a combination of both on our cards and projects this week. It wasn't a problem for me as I have tons of both!

 This card uses Mo's "Snow Day"which was offered as a rare free image, and is now in her shop! Isn't she adorable?!
Images: "Snow Day" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment

Tools: Copics, MS Snowflake and Drippy Goo punches,  Cuttlebug with Nesties, Mounting tape, Dimensionals

Papers: SU! Cool Caribbean, Razzleberry,  Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Fabric trim, Stickles, Pearl Dew Drops


I love these images! I merged the image of the three carolers with the lamp post.  I think they make the perfect Christmas card. This card is larger than my usual cards....about 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".  Don't look too closely at my doodling! LOL!

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, White gel pen, Thin black marker, Cuttlebug with Parisian dies and embossing folder

Papers: SU! Real Red and Garden Green, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Large pearl brad, Grosgrain ribbon,  Wide silk ribbon


I paper-pieced Mo's image of this sweet little Victorian girl and used Flower Soft on her muff.

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, Cuttlebug with Nesties, Tacky tape

Papers: SU! River Rock and Always Artichoke, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Lace, Metal corners, Flower Soft, Ornate button with shank removed



I sent this to my younger sister, who is always  naughty! Don't you love the sentiment?!

Images: " Little Present" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with Marianne swirl die and MFT border die

Papers: SU! Real Red and Glorious Green, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Satin ribbon, Poinsettia

So, those were the last of my Christmas cards for this year. I hope you liked them.
Now it's your turn to take some time for yourself and make something using one of Mo's great images and dies, punches, or both, and enter Mo's Challenge for a chance to win!
