New Challenge over at All Dressed Up--ATG

Hello and welcome to the August challenge at All Dressed Up Stamps where our theme, as always, is 
Anything Goes with ADU image 
***Please remember your creations must use an  All Dressed Up Image*** 
If you don't have any of our images yet, we have provided some  gorgeous freebies which you can find-} here so no one has any crafty excuse at least to not join in our challenges but please respect the rules by not sharing these images … simply tell your friends to come here so they can join in the fun too! 

The Image I used today is called Christmas Baubles and includes the main large ornament and also 2 smaller ornaments.  Because I wanted to enlarge the main bauble, I fancy cut all three ornaments and then hand drew the cords holding them.  I colored them using Stickles, Liquid Pearl White, copics and silver Hint of Stella.  I used a cardstock sentiment for the front and then heaped "snow" all over the place!  I added a different design paper inside and some sentiments from the same cardstock series.

You can also buy any of Wendy's amazing images from the All Dressed Up store-} here. 
Now what could be easier than that?  
We will randomly pick a winner to receive 3 images of your choice, and our DT will choose their top 3 creations. 
 We do hope you will find the time to play along - You have a full month (until the evening of the 14th of September) to enter your creations using the link below. 
We can't wait to see your creations!  Thanks for looking!

An Encouragement Card Using All Dressed Up August New Releases

This week we have the August New Release images to show you from All Dressed Up-these are actually images that were pulled out of the store in order to be made into rubber stamps--then reintroduced as digital images!

I used just *1* of the group of 3 lady images from the Love To Shop digital stamp.  There are so many ways to use this stamp because you not only get them individually in the set, but also as a group!

I wanted to make her purse something special so I used her as a fancy cut image for the inside, aligning the purse to accent the front of the card through the circle I cut. I had to reinforce the arm with a piece of cardstock-I knew it would be opened and closed often so I didn't want it to tear.  I wanted to make this an encouraging card as I plan to donate it to the chemo Infusion Center that I use.  When
you have to go through this struggle, you still get real pleasure of seeing something beautiful.  You can see by using clear acrylic stamps from KKS, it helped with that theme.
Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the rest of the "repurposed stamps" on the ADU Shop site.

Christmas Elves from Sherri Baldy!!

 This is one of my latest Christmas cards
using one of Sherri Baldy's latest releases:
Nixie Pixie Img 9, a darling, festive elf in some beautiful Holiday colors.
Colored with copics, I also used some white Flower Soft for the fur pompoms, and iridescent sequins for snow where the image indicated.  I used a Metallic ribbon along with a variety of white toned flowers as an accent in the corner.  It made a great display on top of the lavender and silver scripted Christmas phrases.
On the inside of the card, there's a complimentary Christmas paper and a cardstock sentiment for the Holidays.  I put a silver bling accent on it's corner.

Check out Sherri's shop site and browse through the categories-  you will find so many adorable images for all your card needs!  Thanks for looking!
