ASM - Holiday ....

.... Hello all!  I'm back with another of my scheduled posts.  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week it's Team A and we have our Holiday theme - you can use any holiday Christmas, Halloween, Valentine or even a national holiday.  Our sponsor this week is Rick St Dennis and the winner of our challenge will get 3 digi images - and they're fab!  I've made a few cards:

Hannah Halloween - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Hannah Halloween Witch; Stampin' Up! - Just Sayin'
Inks: Archival - Jet Black; Distress - Barn Door
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Word Bubbles Framelits
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Graphic 45 DP - Steampunk Spells; Copic Markers

I printed Hannah on white card, coloured her with Copic Markers and cut her out.  I think she's a really fun witch and I love her spider bag!  I covered the card with this super steampunk design paper - it wasn't red to start with.  I added colour by blending red distress ink all over.  I finished the front with a fun sentiment in a word bubble!  The inside is blank for my message.

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Winter Friends
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Anita's DP - Classic Christmas Blue; Copic Markers; Glitter; Craftwork Cards Christmas Label

Next, I made a Christmas card.  I love this jolly snowman.  I coloured him with Copic markers and added glittler to make him sparkle!  The card was easy to make, I covered the base with some blue design paper and finished with a simple Christmas sentiment.  Once again, the inside is blank for my own message.

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Pumpkin Witch; Waltzingmouse - Vintage Witch, Hocus Pocus, Cicely at Halloween
Inks: Versamark

Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Copic Markers; Perfect Pearls; Wink of Stella Brush - Clear; Silver Embossing Powder

I have built up quite a collection of Rick's digi images and this is one of my favourites!  The Pumpkin Witch is sort of cute!  I created the background by stamping various images in Versamark and then rubbing over with Perfect Pearls.  I  stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with silver powder.  I thought it was fun to have her carry a mini pumpkin bag!  The inside is blank.

As you can see from the image above, I had fun colouring the Pumpkin Witch - you'll see the other cards later.  I also love this very quirky Strange Doll image!
