2 DT Cards & an Angel

It’s the 1st of the month so I’ve made a DT card for the challenge at QKR Stampede. Stop by the challenge, which is always “Anything Goes” and several prizes are awarded. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter a card or two yourself?
With Christmas coming up, I’m dreaming of baking cookies… so apron anyone? This cute pattern from Pinterest, a sweet black cat digi, computer-generated sentiments, and scraps from my stash bring this card to life. So fun.
·   Digi- Eureka Digital Stamp (Lg Smiling Black Cat Eyes Open) Also available in unmounted or cling mounted
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir Classique markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Apron Template found HERE (but mine opens at the top)
·   Sentiments- Computer Generated
·   Scraps of patterned paper, ribbon and a paper doily from my stash

Since it’s the first of the month, I’m also sharing my DT card for the October Sheepski Designs Challenge. This month’s theme is “Feature a Creature.” and I loved making an ornament with the sweet digi named Christmas Stocking. It holds such wonderful memories of childhood magic and wonder! The base of my card, with the circle cutout and inside JOY sentiment, is from a boxed set that I found at an after Christmas sale last year. I'm entering this card into several challenges including the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge (My card features all the colors and the Holiday twist.) 
·   Digi- Sheepski Designs (Christmas Stocking)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir Classique markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Sentiments- from an Imagine That Digistamp set (Marleen’s Christmas Stocking)
·   Card base and snowflake patterned paper from my stash

Remember making paper plate angels as a child? Then you might like this version! The little cutie is a freebie from artist Mariola Budek via her FB page. I loved this radiant little face, but after it was all colored and cut out, I discovered that the wings wouldn’t fold with feathers showing. So… I decided to make it into a Rocker Card, which is really just a circle folded in half! (I do provide a link to instructions in the supplies section below.) I clipped the wings from the digi, trimmed around her hands, and folded her gown back a bit to fit onto the rocker base. I added a strip of double-stick tape across the bottom of her gown and gently attached her to the base. I then slid the wings behind her, loosely taping them into place, then checking to make sure they were balanced. The angel listed to one side, so I repositioned the wings until she was balanced and rocked nicely, and then taped them down. I added a sentiment, slipped a sparkly star in her hands, and placed a halo of matching gold onto her curly tresses. So precious!

·   Star template from my scrapbook stash
·   Metallic gold cardstock from my stash
