Snow Face

Hello! I have to say that I LOVE today's card!!! I have been wanting to make a snowman face card for ages and I finally did it!! I used a stitched circle die for the face, the eyes were done with part of the SU Owl punch and the nose was free hand cut. For his scarf I used a strip of paper and the tails were a part of the SU Bow maker punch. I ran my TH Picket Fence Distress Ink pad over my embossed snow panel to make it look more like snow. I left a sentiment off this one as I think it can be used for more than just a Christmas card?! Think I'll have to play with other color combos and make more of these?! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!! Challenges are listed below.

O Christmas Tree


Hello! Back with another quick Christmas card. Seems like here of late I've been doing less and less actual stamping on my cards?! Well the sentiment is sometimes stamped but I've even been using more and more dies for that too. Anyway this card uses another 3D type die cut sticker. It's so pretty and sparkly. Thanks for stopping by hope you have a great weekend! Challenges are listed below.

Warmest Winter Wishes

Hello! Today's card uses a Unity coffee cup image that my friend Stacy so kindly gifted me! Nothing better than a hot drink on a cold cold day. My drink of choice is a Hot Tea with some French vanilla creamer! Occasionally a cup of Hot Cocoa (Love the Artic White!) or even a Hot spiced Apple Cider but NEVER ever Coffee! Don't even like the smell of it! LOL  LOVE how this card turned out!! I had the paper in my stash for ages I'm thinking it may have actually came from Oriental Trading Company? Used to get catalogs in the mail from them that had paper crafty stuff in them. Wonder if they still do that? guess that's something to Google when bored?! What did we ever do before Google? Well enough rambling! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to see you again soon! List of Challenges is below.

Cozy Christmas Cheer

Hello! Todays card came together rather quickly, Love when that happens! I've had these sweater embossed panels laying on my desk for ages and was glad to finally use one. The theme of my card just sort of fell together from there. My cup of Cocoa is a puffy 3D sticker. The picture doesn't do it justice but I was running out of daylight. Darn time change! Thanks so much for stopping by! List of challenges is below.

Plaid Christmas

Hello!!! Well I knew I needed a bit of a blogging break but i certainly didn't think it would end up being almost a year long one?!  I have been making some cards all along just haven't been doing any challenges or blogging. But it's November and time once again for Beccy's Place, Month of Holiday Cards Challenge and I just can't pass up the opportunity to participate again this year! I enjoy it so much.

Okay unto my card! The bear silhouette is a older wooden Darcie's stamp. I couldn't get a solid enough image for my liking with just ink so i touched it up with my copics. Fussy cut it out and glued it onto a embossed oval. Thought the boot print embossing and Buffalo Plaid went great with the image but it just wasn't very Christmassy so added some holly around his neck? Not sure that it looks right but.....will have to do! I think i will do another card minus the holly and have it be a masculine Birthday day card?! Always need more of those in my stash!

Okay thats it for this card thanks so much for stopping by! I plan to be back again soon. List of challenges is listed below. PS I used the Freshly Made Sketch but it ended before i could get this card posted! Blogger was giving me a fit earlier today when I was trying to upload the photos??

Silent Night

Hello! Today I have another "die cut" creation to share with you. I so enjoy making these scenes come to life so to speak. I used another one of my alcohol inked backgrounds as my starting point. The little town scene is a Your Next Stamp die, the Carolers and Peace are by Impression Obsession. I added some stickles to the snowy hills and finished it off with some sparkly snowflake stickers that I found ay Hobby Lobby. I was very pleased with how this one turned out. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Meowy Christmas

Hello! I had time to squeeze in 1 last challenge over at Beccy's Place Month long Holiday card challenge. My card uses an adorable cat image from Repeat Impressions. I colored it with my Copic markers. The bell image in the corner is from the former TAC. I colored over the 2 bells (one on the hat) with a gold glitter marker but it doesn't show to well in my picture. The die cut is from a TH set and the "bling" is nailheads. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

December 25

Hello! My card uses the Quilted Deer digi, it's a freebie from Beccy's Place. I used the pre-colored version today. I paired it with another one of my "scraps" trees. I embossed and embellished it with some little gold nailheads. I thought this would make a nice baby's 1st Christmas card?! Didn't have any stamps that say that so just went with December 25. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll be back again soon!

I'm back it's a 2 post day! I have a quick and easy card to share with you. Another no stamping involved card (except maybe for a sentiment later on in the inside?) just various dies and an embossing folder. I'm finding that I'm making more and more cards like this. It's so much fun to play around with die cuts and see what scene's you can come up with. I'm loving how this one turned out! Thanks for stopping by, Challenges are listed below.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My sister had an awesome meal planned as always. Now that my Thanksgiving cards should have all arrived at there destinations I think it's safe to show them. I fell in LOVE with this gorgeous Fall paper that I found at Hobby Lobby this year! I'm sure you'll be seeing lots more of it in the future as I bought extra sheets!! I think it's the touch of teal that caught my eye? Something different and eye catching I think?! I found the Thanksgiving die on Amazon and thought it went great with the paper. The leaves were made with a embossing punch that I found on clearance at AC Moore's. I just ran a matching color ink pad over the leaves to make them pop. I reversed the colors on the cards as I couldn't decided which way I like it best?? Do you have a favorite? I forgot to take a picture of the inside. I lined it in cream and sponged around the edges in yellow. Added a narrow strip of that beautiful paper along the bottom and put one of the embossed leaves on top. I was super pleased with these. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend. List of challenges is listed below.
