FMS..........A Very Merry Christmas





Happy Monday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.


I used the Stampin Up set Reason for them Season for my sentiment  which is done using the chalkboard technique.
My Poinsettia is done with Real Red ink and card stock and the Reason for the Season set and Festive Flower Builder punch. The leaves are done with Mossy Meadow card stock.



The base of the card is Very Vanilla and then a layer of Basic Black followed by a piece of DSP from the This Christmas Specialty pack. 

I added some real red ribbon and silver cording behind the image for the horizontal element in the sketch. I am so bad at the messy swirls and ribbon behind the main elemnt thing that is trendy right now, but working on it! Lol!!



Another Christmas card done, I made some matching gift tags using this Chalkboard technique I will show them to you later. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Star of Light


Happy Sunday Peeps!!!

Popping in here quickly to share a card I made using the beautiful Stampin Up Star of Wonder stamp set and matching thinlits.

I love Night of Navy with Silver for Christmas cards.

These dies make a gorgeous card and even better, makes them fast and easy.

I made this card using a sketch challenge that has since passed,  I  have a hard time these days getting a card done, photographed, edited and blog post done in any kind of a timely matter.


But this card is so pretty I  had to share.

Hope you enjoy it

Creative Challenge with Wendy......Post It Notes




Happy Monday Peeps!!!

I made it through the long Black Friday weekend at my work and I am more than ready for a couple of days off. It was crazy busy!!

So as you all know my sweet friend Wendy, from WeeBeeStampin4Fun, and I have been doing Creative Challenges back and forth for a while now. It was my turn to throw down the challenge and when I was getting some swaps ready for OnStage last month I came across these little post it note holders with pens that I bought a few years back from Pick Your Plum. I decorated a few to give out to some friends.
While making them I decided they would be great for our next Creative Challenge. So I packed a few up, along with some other things, and mailed them off to Wendy.

The Santa thinlit die is ALMOST a perfect fit.


I die cut my Santa using Cherry Cobbler card stock. I did trim off just a bit of the Santa along one side and then reglued down the the edge piece to give it a finished look.

The sentiment on here comes from the Greetings from Santa stamp set. 
I stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and die cut with a small die that is in the Bakers Box thinlet set.

I then had to make one using the new stamp set I was able to pre order from the upcoming Occasions mini. I love the Lift You Up set with matching dies. The hot air balloon is PERFECT!
The dies even cut out the pieces that fit behind the balloon, the ones I cut in different colors. Those pieces can be used like I did here or to make another hot air balloon, they are so versatile. Do you see the clouds? They are another die in the set and the matching stamp set.



The DSP on here is one that will be available in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

And her is picture of both my endeavors:



I think they both turned out so cute.

I hope you will hop on over to Wendy's blog to see what she did with my little challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!

SUOnly......Merry Christmas


Happy Friday Peeps!!!

Toady I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at the
 SUOnly Challenge Blog. which is Holiday Cuteness.

What is more cute than this little Fox, from the Stampin Up Foxy Friends stamp set,
all dressed up in his holiday attire.

I love how he turned out. 
The tree is from the same set and is stamped with Old Olive ink and I hand cut it out, even tho there are framelits that match it.
The Fox is stamped using Chocolate Chip ink a couple of times and then he is punched out with the matching Fox Builder Punch.
I added the head to the fox using a dimensional
The Santa hat, holly leaves and bow tie are from the Snow Friends stamp set.





The Merry Christmas banner comes from the White Christmas stamp set.
I added a star to my tree using some glimmer paper and a star framelit from the Starlight Framelit set.

The base of the card is Real Red card stock. 
The DSP is from the Candy Lane pack and I matted it with the thick Whisper White.

I had a piece of white already embossed with the Woodland folder
 in my stash so I just grabbed it to use for my background.
I hope you like this card as much as I do.
 I had so much fun putting it together. 
Most of my stamping time lately is very rushed 
and so limited, which is playing havoc with my mojo. :(

Thank you for stopping by

Special Reason........Friend Like You



Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made for a friend using a fun new set I received at OnStage.

This set is called Special Reason and will be available in January from the new Occasions mini.
I could not believe my luck in winning this set during one of the Prize Patrols, it is right up my alley, cos you know I love a pretty flower set.

I took some inspiration for this card from the sample in the upcoming Occasions mini.
I started wth a base of Crumb Cake and then a layer of So Saffron that I embossed .


Also I used some other fun little embellishments I got at OnStage, the flower centers.
Aren't they soooo pretty?

Hope you enjoy this little sneak peek.

Thanks for stopping by.

SUO Challenge.......Time to Deck the Halls


Hello Peeps!!

The SU Only Challenge this week is Celebrations of All Kinds.

What better Celebration  than Christmas and all that goes with it?

I love this little Merry Mice set and so I used it again for this challenge card.

I stamped this little trio onto some thick whisper white card stock and colored with my markers.


I used Soft sky for the base and added
 a bit of silver glimmer paper around the image panel.

I used some burlap ribbon across the card and half of a paper doily to fancy it up a bit.



Thanks for stopping by today!
