Bad Santa Came and Went!

On the 5th day of Creepmas and my true love sent to me...Bad Santa! He is in a rotten mood after all those zillion letters from us begging for this and that.  So his solution?  Here it is and do pay heed to it!

Image is "Ya Want This??" from Rick St. Dennis and colored with Prisma colored pencils with some distress ink around as his mood is not sunny at all!  

I would like to enter him in Forever Dark 2 December

A Whimsy Krampus?

Can there be a whimsy Krampus?  I was reading up on the old guy since this is only my second Creepmas celebration and first, I am glad my folks didn't know about him!  I was never naughty of course, but still :)  This journal page came from my studies and is the abbreviated version of Krampus..and yes, I know I forgot the sticks in his hand!  It is dark outside, lovelies!!!  No going out there this time of year no way!

I drew him LOL can you tell?

Exactly 4 Days Left! Hurry!

Ok, we know you are making us wait on the goodness but come on!  Time is running out!  Come add your entry to the linky at Lost Coast Designs Monthly Challenge "Board Game Pieces" just as quick as your inky fingers can get there!  Here is a little tiny altered puzzle box with the puzzle inside made to hang on the tree.  I used the " Quilted Wings Angel" from Carmen's Veranda, well as much as would  fit on the tiny box and then used all of her on the puzzle which actually can be put back together.

Proof it comes apart :)

Gelatos and shimmer mist galore with the "Large Christmas Tree" and "Christmas Lights" also found at Carmen's Veranda.  Colored with Derwent Inktense Blocks...her face is tan not zombie colored!

And it all goes in about a 2 inch box with the words from "Party Words" at Lost Coast Designs.  I added some shimmer mist to this after seeing the photo but it has vanished from my files..those gremlins again!

Come see the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity for all the info and chances to win some spending money at the store to treat yourself for Christmas!  You don't have to use our stamps to enter our monthly challenge but if you do you double your chances :)

Some Carmen's Veranda Christmas Fun Continued and a new Facebook Challenge!

Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda's 
                       *** FACEBOOK CHALLENGE - #2 WINTER HOLIDAYS ***
                                         starts Dec 1 though to Jan 15, 2016 

and I just had to have some more play with these awesome stamps!  Since I had to cut off some legs to make my ATC block, I had to show you the rest of the lovely "Reindeer Doll" and "Elf with Star", legs and all!

I am not a tag maker for some reason probably because like cards I seem to miss the mark on most of the ones I make but these two I really love.  Gelatos and Inktense blocks with some Chameleon pens used like water colors in some places and some stenciled snowflakes with some bling and they were done!

Make sure to enter our challenge for December which is "Make a Game Board Piece" and also enter the Carmen's Christmas event!  All the goodies can be found at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity so look at those side bars and click away to find loads of fun!

A Merry Carmen's Veranda's Christmas to You!

We are celebrating Christmas with a Carmen's Veranda's Christmas Event showcasing some of the wonderful stamps found there to use for the holidays!  Keep up with all our challenges and events at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and never miss any of the fun :)  I loved ALL of the stamps and decided to make a set of 4 ATC's created using the same process for the background.  Then I began reading about ATC Blocks and went with a modified version of that using a old tin that just fit the ATC's when completed.

 The only drawback was having to cut off some legs...sigh..but I kept them because I have a feeling one day I will just really really need some legs for something!  The ATC's background was white cardstock layered with sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang, stenciled with some acrylic paint, and randomly stamped with "Merry Christmas" from Lost Coast Designs and I used the "Christmas Lights" stamp from there also doing all 4 in a set of 6 at the same time to keep it matching. This one is stamped with "Elf with Star" colored with Prisma colored pencils and the lights on the string colored with markers, then fussy cut him and glued onto the ATC after attaching them to the sides of the painted, distressed tin.

I totally love this lovely "Reindeer Doll" who has some lovely legs by the way!  Glossy Accents added to make it shine in parts in real life, promise!

 Now this "Waving Santa" reminded me of a store Santa when I was 12 so I did giggle a bit while working on him and added some wings from the "Skull with Wings" from Lost Coast Designs.  Added some red and green bling from dollar store sale after last Christmas also where the tiny ornaments on top came from.  I added some snowflakes to the top hangers but the white did not show up against the white light box :(

 This sweetie "Quilted Wing Angel" is one of several gorgeous angels available at Carmen's Veranda.  She is so cute and happy!

Thanks for hanging in there with me through a long post but wanted to share the deets with you.  Please check out my team mates wonderful makes for this event and don't forget our challenge this month at Lost Coast Designs!  So hope to visit your blog when you enter so I can see your place!
