DL.ART Thankful Thursday #170 - Green & Red or Blue & White

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's time for another Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART. The challenge this week is Green & Red or Blue & White...your choice.


I couldn't decide between green and red or blue and white, so I created one of each. It also gave me the opportunity to use my Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamps/dies :)


I think the papers are from Recollections' Jolly & Bright paper stack, but I'm not positive. I inked the edges of this one with Broken China Distress Ink. This guy was colored with Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Markers and a TH Waterbrush. The glasses, candy cane and Santa hat are from the Crazy Things stamps and die sets. I used glossy accents on the glasses and glitter on the hat. The trees are a Die-Namites Winter Trees die. The snowflakes are Impression Obsession Small Snowflake dies. The gorgeous ribbon is Aruba Blue from Diana's Tropical Summer bundle. The tag and sentiment are from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).


This guy was colored with Fired Brick and Barn Door Distress Markers and a TH Waterbrush. The Santa and reindeer die is from Impression Obsession. This beautiful ribbon is Six Fathoms from Diana's The Mermaid's Tale First Edition.


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your green & red or blue & white project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  58. Lisa, I LOVE these cards. You can take anything and make it beautiful, even these Crazy Birds. You've given me inspiration (and hope) that I can use the birds for Christmas cards. The trees and techniques, everything is just beautiful! The ribbon is like icing on the cake...very pretty! Your work is inspirational...keep it coming!
    Merry Christmas!
