This weeks challenge is a Color Challenge we were asked to use Purple and Silver, what a fun combination!

I just love this image by Pink Cat Studios!  He is one of my favorite snowmen images!  I use Stampin Up pure color pencils to color the nose and birdies. I stamped black snowflakes with Stazon ink onto the glossy silver card stock and then matted vellum over it with black brads on the corners! I used Stampin Up Elegant Eggplant colored card stock, ribbon and glitter.

This weeks challenge was to add something metallic to your card. It can be a charm, paper, brads, embellishments, ribbon, embossing, just as long as it shines! Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps!  Robyn's Fetish  Digital Stamps And More, a division of I Did It Creations, was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib.  Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.

I had fun with this cute mug image! I used my Copic markers to color the image.  I used a little glitter and Diamond Glaze on the red heart.  I popped the whipped cream up to add a little dimension to the card. Cardstock and paper is from Stampin' Up, but the silver background mat, believe it or not was from a Kleenex box!  When I saw the bright silver inside I know I had to break it down and save it for my cards!  I punched the hearts from it as well!  I love the silver elastic cording, I think it makes a nice finishing touch tied toether with the hearts, candy cane charm and noel tag!

Be sure to go check out the CSAYL Blog for all the other wonderful creations and to read more about the challenge details!  Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is offering the winner of this challenge 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper set of their choice!!

This weeks challenge is an inspiration challenge and Pink Cat Studio is our sponsor!!  I chose the adorable image below, I thought the tree fit nice with the insperartion photo.  I used my Copic markers to color her.  The papers are all scraps I had from previous projects laying on my desk, so I put them to good use!

CSAYL Gift Set Challenge #6 - Double Packet Bag

This was a great project this week.  The bag is made from one 12 x 12 piece of Stampin' Up Designer Series paper!! I use a rub-on from Stampin Up too so this was a no stamp project. I love the cordaroy buttons and the white stitch brown ribbon, they were both discontinued but I was sure to buy several containers nad spools before they were gone! :-) It turned out super cute and came together quickly. 

You have to check out the other completed projects on CSALY Blog. You can find the tutorial  HERE as well.  This would make great little office gifts and would hold gifts cards or girft certificates perfectly.  I just cannot believe that October is here already, time sure flies when you are having a blast creating cards and projects!
