Without further ado, let me share another one of the projects I created with this amazing kit.

I started by using Whimsy Stamps 'Peekaboo Window 1 die' to cut the background panel from white cardstock.

I then used VersaFine CLAIR 'Nocturne' ink pad to stamp the images onto some of the designer paper in the kit. I added some extra details to the images using a black gelly roll pen.

I stamped the sentiment onto the front of the card using the nocturne ink also, and added some red enamel dots found in the kit.

This was then adhered onto a standard white A2 card base.

Now, if you want to get your hands on this awesome kit, be sure to place your order.  You don’t want to miss this one, I promise!

Cute Card Thursday - Food/Drink

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Food/Drink'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I have loved so many of the products from Simon Says Stamp's Stamptember release, and this set was no exception. I used Heffy Doodle's 'More than S'mores' stamp set for the image and sentiment. (As this was a Stamptember products, they are exclusive and only made in a limited quantity - once they are gone they are gone. Unfortunately this one sold out and will not be replaced).

I stamped the images and then colored them in using my prismacolor pencils. I fussy cut these images out and then glued the coffee cups into the reindeers hands.

I used Lawn Fawn's 'Mini Picture Frames' dies along with the new 'Knit Picky Fall' paper collection. I used Lawn Fawn's 'Milk Carton' die - which fit perfectly onto the 6x6 paper pad (2 pieces of the 6x6 cardstock are needed).

I finished the milk carton by using the sentiment strip and coloring it with my pencils, and then added a small clothes pin and some bakers twine. A super cute, easy treat box.

We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps, a great prize as always! 

Hope you can join us!

Without further ado, let me share another one of the projects I created with this amazing kit.

I started by stamping the elf and using my prismacolor pencils to color it in. I then used the coordinating die set from the kit to cut him out.

I cut a panel of white cardstock measuring 3 3/4" x 5" and ran it through my big shot machine using a Darice 'Wire Fence' embossing folder from Whimsy Stamps. I then used a soft brush to gently brush on some 'tumbled glass' distress ink

I die cut the Christmas tree from some blue glittery cardstock using Whimsy Stamps 'Funky Christmas Tree die'. I adhered this directly onto the panel. 

I then stamped the sentiment from the 'Elf Sized' stamp set using VersaFine CLAIR 'Paradise' ink pad.

The elf was popped up on foam dots and some enamel dots from Whimsy Stamps 'Winter Wishes' collection.

This was then adhered onto a blue glittery cardstock panel and then onto a standard A2 card base.

Now, if you want to get your hands on this awesome kit, be sure to place your order.  You don’t want to miss this one, I promise!

A Great BIG Thank You

I'm up on the Crafty Doodle Chick blog today with a clean and simple card using My Favorite Things products.
Some of these are available in the Crafty Doodle Chick Store.


I die cut the MFT cross stitch flower frame from some lilac cardstock and used coordinating floss to add the cross stitching.
I used an MFT shaker flower die-namic set to cut out the blue flower and green stem and leaves. I used the coordinating MFT circle shaker pouch to add some white sequins from my stash and make this into an interactive card. This was all adhered to a white cardstock panel measuring 3.75"x5".

I stamped the sentiment using 2 of the sentiment strips from MFT's Gift Card Greetings stamp set. 

I then adhered this panel onto a dark grey panel measuring 4"x5.25", and then onto a standard A2 white card base.

An easy card anyone can make!

Without further ado, let me share another one of the projects I created with this amazing kit.

I started out by making the pillow box gift. I stamped the images from the 'elf sized' stamp set onto the pillow box and tag I had die cut (a Whimsy Stamps set that is now retired) using VersaFine CLAIR 'Glamorous' and 'Green Oasis' ink pads. I used a white gelly roll pen to add some detailing to the stockings and used VersaFine 'Nocturne' ink pad to stamp the greeting on the tag. I cut out another tag from white cardstock and added hole reinforcers. I finished the pillow box off with the bakers twine and jingle bells from the kit.

The other 2 tags were created using the same Whimsy stamps tag dies (now retired). I die cut the stocking from the white cardstock and specialty red cardstock in the kit, and pieced the red stocking back in the white cut out. This was adhered onto the front of the tag and again I used hole reinforcers from my stash. I added the jingle bells and bakers twine, along with a stamped sentiment from the set onto the back

I love that this kit includes treat boxes too this month. I love to make matching cards, tags and gifts.

Now, if you want to get your hands on this awesome kit, make sure you place your order.  You don’t want to miss this one, I promise!

Thanks for being my Teacher

I'm up on the Crafty Doodle Chick blog today with a super cute card using Lawn Fawn products.
These products are available from the Crafty Doodle Chick Store.

I stamped the image using Lawn Fawn's 'So Owlsome' clear stamp set and colored them in with copic markers. I then fussy cut them out.

I used Lawn Fawn's 'Reveal Wheel' and 'Reveal Wheel square add-on' to cut out the base of this card from white card stock, but also from the patterns papers too. I used the 'Reveal wheel pick of the patch add on' for reveal wheel cut out as I thought it could pass as an apple for the teacher! I die cut the frame from red cardstock from my stash. The patterned papers are from Lawn's Fawn's new 'Knit Picky Fall' paper pad, cut using the square reveal wheel add on to get the stitched edge and then I hand cut the sloped hills..

The sentiment wheel reads 'Thanks for being my teacher' when turned. 

A super fun teacher appreciation card!
