February Customer Challenge

Saint Patrick's Day is just around the corner and our theme is "Putting on the Green" Join in on our challenge, just click on the Gecko Galz challenge on the upper left side of the blog. 
Here is my project for "Putting on the Green"

The card base is a light green (it looks gray here but it isn't) I ran the front of the card base thru a swiss dot embossing folder. The image is from Gecko Galz collage sheet called "Visions in Green" and I matted it in green. The shamrock is a sticker from Sandylion and the Kiss Me I'm Irish is a sticker from Stickerroni. I inked all the edges in saddle brown.

I again put my to and from on the back of the card as it shows in the second picture. all the images came from the same collage sheet.

Tag Your It !!!

Love making Tags and I don't buy any from the store anymore ! Here is my first tag!
The tag base was cut with one of Tim Holtz dies and I stamped three HO images and cut them out.
As usual, I have inked them in brown ink. I also don't like to put the to and from on the front of my tag - takes away from the design, so it goes on the back.


Here are a couple more samples using the same collage sheet.

December Customer Challenge Project

Our Challenge this month is "Dashing Thru The Snow, although that brings a image of a sleigh in the snow I kinda thought of someone dresses in their warmest close out in the cold dashing to get inside where it is warm! LOL !!!!


I used a greyblue cardstock for my card base and was so jazzed that I found some blue snowflake paper in my scrap drawer for the card front. The image was matted with the same color as the card base. As my usual, I have inked everything with brown ink. I had this "Let it Snow" sentiment in my many sentiments in my Christmas words drawer !!!!! Hope you like my card .

" It's beginning to look alot like Christmas " Here at Gecko Galz !


I have been a busy lil bee making my Christmas cards, I make around 60 of them a year to mail
out !!! Here are a few I have made with the collage sheet " Christmas Filligree "






The card base on all of these Christmas cards are made from kraft paper and the card  fronts are from a Anna Grifffin paper pack. The images are matted with matching color cardstock. The bow on the first two cards is a die.

The next bunch of cards were also made from the Christmas Filigree collage sheets. Never thought I would like Christmas cards in black but these made some beautiful cards. The card front papers I got from Hobby Lobby ( I just did not have anything that looked good for these images)  I inked everything with a dark gray ( almost black ink ).
