Cranking out Christmas Cards

Where has this year gone?  I made a promise to myself to make my cards this year so I have been slipping in some time for a little card therapy.  For my first card I used those cute Yeti's is from MFT Stamps  Beast Friends which is an adorable stamp set.  I used the The Stamp Doctors Card in a box Die to make the box card. I wish you could really see how shiny and bright this card is.  Fun little box and so easy to make especially with the dies.

I LOVE this moose stamp  from Whimsy Stamps.  I needed a masculine card and this stamp was the 
perfect choice. The background wood stamp made the card pop. I also used the Notched Rectangle Dies from Whimsy Stamps. The pine needles and cone are from Sunny Studios.

                                                                    Sunny Studio

                     Hope you liked them,  off I go to make more cards. Have an awesome day!

I just got my order from Lawn Fawn and must say the Shadow Box Mountain add on is a must have.  I enjoyed playing around with this die set, nice therapy after a grueling past week and weekend.  Just wanted to share my little creation.

Twix or Treat!

I have been really lax about posting, too much going on and this has a lower priority than what I have been dealing with I guess.  I have been keeping up with new releases and am in love with the new release from The Greetery.  They have come out with such stinkin' cute stamps and dies and the design team is over the top!  They even have a Look Book with adorable creations to inspire you or me in this case.  I immediately had order their Candy Pop dies and the Christmas Care-A-Van stamp and die, which I wasted no time in playing with.   I decided I was going to make Halloween treats for the grand kids.  I played around making the bubbles deep enough to fit a Twix bar in.  The die actually goes through foam board I got from the local DollarTree.  I ended up adding 2 foam middles and it fit perfectly. I can see I am going to have tons of fun with these dies and no I am not getting paid any commissions to plug them, I just love them that much and wanted to share.  Hope you have a Happy Halloween!

I think I am a sucker for pink, black and green combo. I love that combination.  I saw some really adorable cards made with the Fabulous Flamingo stamps from Sunny Studio Stamps.  I also used the palm tree from Seasonal Trees stamp set.  The card design is from a tutorial at StampingBella. Hope you like it.

The base warped because I used a brayer on it and it apparently shrunk when it dried, will try again without using the brayer.

Cherries anyone?

I can't resist a good deal especially when it is an adorable stamp and since Stamping Bella was offering 25% off this cute chick I had to get it.  The sale is only for the month of March so if you love this little Cherry Chick you need to go grab it.  I really love all their chicks. Thanks for stopping by!

Hear me Roar!

I have had this set for sometime now and have no idea why I haven't touched it until now.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these adorable little guys. After I colored them I decided I would just go ahead and use the same paper for all of them and challenge myself to get a theme going. These Loveable Leopards  make the cutest little cards don't you think? They are from My Favorite Things.

                                                               Have an awesome day!

What's inside the Bunny Box?

Yay! I finally finished my bunny box made from The Stamp Doctor's A2 Box for Cards.  It seems I am always making cards that are too thick to fit in an envelope and this box is perfect for those fat cards.  It also can be used for Easter Treats (which I haven't bought yet).  I used the Nested Oval Dies and the Stitched Nested Oval Dies to cut the window from The Stamp Doctor's Paper Pack Easter#1 paper, then cut out a bunny from the Bear-Bunny Paper Piecing Dies.  I decided to have the Bunny looking into the box so I didn't use all the pieces that come with this versatile die. The grass is from the Grass Tops Die and I cut out eggs from the same Paper Pack Easter#1 set. The heart swag on top is from La-la Land Crafts called the Heart Garland Die. Fun little box that I definitely will use tons!  Thanks for dropping by, happy crafting!
