kiss kiss, i love you.


Good morning! It's a NEW challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! The challenge is "Anything Goes - with an Optional Twist (Christmas)".

I love pandas, they are adorable animals that I just want to cuddle! LOL This is the first shaker card I've ever made....seriously. I always wanted to but never tried. It was pretty easy. All you need are some nesting dies to make the shaker portion, in which I used the By DIEzynes Dies - Stitched CirclesHere on my card I am using the stamp set Mama Elephant - Pandamonium. There are several panda images in different sizes and poses. I used three and I made the scene of two of them kissing one panda under the mistletoe. Lastly from the stamp set, I used the sentiment "kiss kiss, i love u.". 


To fill up the shaker card, I used sequins and beads from my supplies and the red from Sulyn - Mixed SequinsThe hearts inside are from the stamp set, it's colored with Copics and accented with Wink of Stella - Clear Pen. The little mistletoe branch is from a Christmas spray and I added red sequins for the berries.

I Am Roses "End of the Year" Blog Hop


Good morning! WELCOME to the I Am Roses “End of the Year” Blog Hop. I'm up first for you today and here is my card:


I've used three types of flowers and leaves. We still have a few days left to get our holiday craft on so I created this project. The base of the card is simple and the main focus are the gorgeous flowers. Of course you can see the addition of sequins...obsessed!

I kept my post short and all the I Am Roses flowers will be posted below. I've yet to see all the DT's creations, so I will be hopping along with the rest of you!

Season's Greetings


Happy Saturday! I'm sharing my Season's Greetings card using the By DIEzyne Dies Side Step Card die. I can't get enough of this die. I know that this die will be a forever favorite. Accompanying this die is MFT Die-namics Dainty Doily.

I'm still in holiday greeting cards mode. The sentiment "Season's Greetings" is from Mama Elephant Season's Greeting embossed in gold embossing powder. I paired up gold glittered cs with the Simple Stories DIY Christmas designer paper.



To complete the card, I added some gold sequins from Mixed Sequins by Sulyn and flowers from my stash.

Decembrrr


Happy Tuesday! Here are my projects using the new stamp set Decembrrr from Avocado Arts.


Let's Go!


Card 1: Thanks SNOW much
I made an oval easel card. Not your traditional Christmas color combo, but I went for a frosty bold look with the blue & black. I created this cute winter scene using the snowman, snowflakes and tree images. All colored with my Copics. For the puffy snow, I used Liquid Applique in white, love the dimensional effect it gives. The sentiments "Decembrrr" & "Thanks SNOW much" are one of the many from the stamp set. I added some snowflake die cuts and flowers to finish the card.


Tag 1: SNOW good to see you
Next up, I made this cute reindeer tag. The reindeer is from the Hollydays stamp set.


I used the tree image again, stamped and fussy cut it out several times to use in the background. "SNOW good to see you" is another sentiment in the Decembrrr stamp set. I coordinated this tag with my previous card. Oh did I forget to mention that I added the biggest red shiner for the nose? Adorbs!


Tag 2: You're SNOW wonderful
For my second tag, I used the pair of penguins in the stamp set. I colored them with my Copics and fussy cut them. Look they're holding hands! LOL I had this snowflake doily die and cut it twice, added some dimensional foam adhesive and layered them. I doodled some dots for a pierced look on the background. I used more of that Liquid Applique for the snow effect. The "You're SNOW wonderful" is yet another phrase included in the set. 

Hope you enjoyed my projects for you. Thanks for stopping in today!

Let it Snow...again


Good Morning! Only a couple more weeks 'til Christmas...eeek! I'm sharing my Let It Snow card using the dies designed by our talented Rhea! The die I used is the By DIEzyne Dies Side Step Card. I love love this die. It's the perfect die to create this look and also it comes with all the trimmings to make the mats.

No need for designer paper, I kept it monochromatic with white cs. Another die I used is from MFT Die-namics Dainty Doily. It's the largest doily in the back. The inner doily is from another set with the same style.


The "Let it Snow" sentiment is from Mama Elephant Season's Greeting. Lastly, I added some pearls and this glittered star branch for some sparkle.

Paper Doll Marci


Good morning! Happy Wednesday! It's time for a NEW challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! The challenge is "Anything Goes - with an Optional Twist (FALL Colors)".

I recently aquired La-La Land Crafts Paper Doll Marci Winter and I immediately had to use her. She is colored with my Copics and used some shimmer chalk for her cheeks. For her freckles, just a white gel pen to draw on the dots. I decorated her sweater with a birdy from Lawn Fawn Chit Chat. She's so versatile, you can use her for any ocassion. 


The designer papers are from Simple Stories Cozy Christmas & DIY Christmas. For a more rustic look, I had cut some burlap into a fishtail banner and adhered that to the card. Instead of using rhinestones or brads, I used these wooden "enamel" dots that my friend had gifted me.The image is layed on top of a doily cut from the designer paper.

The FALL colors that I chose were brown, olive green and orange. I used flowers from my stash and also an orange flower from Magnolia Vintage Tinsel Dahlias. For the leaves, I used the La-La Land Crafts Open Leaf Flourish Die. Since I didn't have any olive cs on hand, I used my Copic marker YG97 to color white cs and cut the die from that. Lastly for the shimmer, I used the Winlk of Stella Clear pen.

Christmas is just around the corner, but it's still FALL. Loved this challenge.
