Kicking off the Holidays Digi Day at TCC

Good morning!!  Did you all make it to our Kicking off the Holidays Digi Day last night?  Sadly I missed it, but it sounds like they had a lot of fun.  Along with the party we started 3 new challenges last night that will run until next Saturday, Nov. 12.  Here are the samples I created for the challenges.

 For the first one I used this cute snowman image from Fresh Brewed Designs.  I colored the iamge with BIC Markits and added some Hero Arts Prisma glitter to the snow and part of the snowman.  The DP is from The Paper Studio.  For the background I ran some white cs through my snowflake Cuttlebug folder.  The brrr bling is from Creative Charms.

I'm entering this card in the Monthly Challenge and celebration at Fresh Brewed Designs.

 On this card I used Louise and Candycane from Guylou's Inimitability.  I colored the image with BIC Markits and added glitter to the red stripes on the candycane and the ball and cuff on the cap.  The DP is from The Paper Studio.  The bling snowflakes are from Creative Charms.

I used a new fold on this card.  I found the instructions for this fold on Julie's blog, Stamps, Paper, Ribbons n Things.

We also have a Holiday Treats challenge...

 I made this jar of treats.  I did the actual jar a while ago by etching a Christmas tree shape on one side.  Then I added some Hershey's nuggest and tied on a tag using some MS bakers twine.  I made the tag using the Farm Jar from The Stamping Boutique.  I colored that image with BIC Markits then punched a hole at the top to thread the twin through.

Here is the etched jar before I added the candy and tag.

Here is a closer look at the tag.  I wrote Merry Christmas in the banner by hand.

I am entering this in the current Monthly challenge at The Stamping Boutique.

For this card is used this pumpkin cupcake from Jen's Digi Stamps.  I colored the image with BIC Markits.  The DP is DCWV.  The bakers twine is from Martha Stewart Crafts and the sentiment is from Ippity.  I added some faux stitching to the die cut shapes.

And last, but not least (lol), is our Gift Wrap challenge...

 First I made this little box.  I decorated it with some digi papers from the Tidings of Christmas paper pack from JLJ Designs.  Then I added the Nutcracker Bear, also from JLJ Designs.  I colored the image with BIC Markits.  I also inked all the edges of the box with some brown chalk ink.

 Here's a side view of the box.

Next, I made this box using some papers from the Traditional Christmas paper pack from JLJ Designs.  I tied it shut with some green ribbon and added a tag from Digital Delights using some MS bakers twine.  I colored the tag with BIC Markits.

Thanks for looking.  I can't wait to see all your entries in the challenges.
