Christmas Dashing Deer



Thank you Deb Valder for another great card.  Take a look


This is CASEd from Deb with a few changes by me.  Only because I had to use what I have.  I used the 'Merry Christmas' from the stamp set Holiday Wishes #SS-0469 from Fun Stampers Journey.  I used Deb's idea on the ribbon.  It had white checks in it so I sponged Oatmeal Cookie on it to go with my color scheme better.  I also used accessories I already had around the deer's neck. 

Some more pictures:





And

Gather & Grateful - Comfort and Joy!

Have I said how much I love Chalk Couture lately?!  LOL, I am obsessed with this wonderful product.  Please check it out at my website cheriecriswell.chalkcouture.com

I have a two sided board to show you today.  First our thanksgiving side in which I used three silk screen transfer.





I used Fancy Corners, Gather & Grateful and Falling Leaves.  The board I had already weathered to make it look more like an old Farmhouse look that is so popular right now.

Then on the other side..........




Whoa! Shut the barn door!
I had painted the buffalo plaid a few days ago following a video from Splinters and Strings.  I then put our Chalk Couture transfer Good Tidings (which sadly is not available) on top with our white chalk paste.  Love it!  You could use any of our big solid prints on top of this in white and it really shows off don't you think?  I'm thinking green, or black & gray plaid.  hmmmmmmm.............

One trick:  Since this is a new and large transfer when I took it off to clean it the sticky side stuck to itself - OH NO!  I thought I ruined my transfer, but I remembered I read somewhere to put it in water.  So I did and that did the trick, however it was not instant - slow and easy as to not distort the transfer.

Chalk Couture HO! HO! HO!



So this is what I started with this morning:



I liked it, but I felt it needed something, so I added.............




Snowflakes!  I like this even better, but the thing is if I didn't I could just take a wet cloth and wipe it off.  This stuff is amazing!  Love it!!

Which color should I use? Hmmmmmm......




Ok, I need your help. I am working on my October Club Culture Mistletoe, and I am trying to figure out what color I should use for the sentiment 'Holiday Hugs and mistletoe kisses' - Aquamarine or elephant gray? I also have transfers of snowflakes. To much? What do you think?




Decisions, decision........

I will post my finished project here.

So I couldn't decide so I did .......





Both


And if I don't like that I will just wipe it off and try something else.  Eazy Peazy Mac & Cheezy!

Chalk, chalk, chalkin!




So my daughter-in-law made this using our October Club Couture transfer Mistletoe. Wouldn't this be cute on a baby's bedroom door? Isaiah........perfect!





So cute! and I love the color combination! She painted the background with a purple acrylic and then chalked using the Mistletoe transfer with Aquamarine and white for the lettering.

And for Halloween.....this is what I did:





I used the September Club Couture transfer Thanksgiving Place Setting.

I am completely in love with this new craft!! You really need to try it.

Chalk, chalk, baby! Chalk, chalk!
