Penguin Christmas Sweetheart

Back to loving the new Maja Design papers "Joyous Winterdays".  I don't have much left and I got the whole collection!!!   😲  This card was sooooo fun!!  For some reason it took awhile to come together but hey ... sometimes that's what being creative is all about right?  hee hee  Well, that's my excuse anyway.  😀

I CAN'T STOP WITH THE PENGUINS!!   Seems to be my theme this year.  LOL!  I suspect I'm not alone!  I've so enjoyed coloring them up and I don't think I'm done yet!!  ha ha ha!!  This little cutie is again a Whimsy image called "Penguin Christmas Sweetheart" which I've colored with my Copics.  How do you like the pom-pom on the hat?!!  ha ha ha!!  I love it!!  I've also added "MERRY" with the new Joy "Scrabble Stamp and Die" set.  This is a must have in your stash!!  

Here I've made some more Foamiran flowers but I've used a poinsettia die that I had in my stash.  I shared this because I wanted to show you that you really can use any die with this foam.  I could only cut 2 layers at a time instead of 4 because the dies aren't as deep as others that are sold in the store but it still works.  So don't tell yourself you need to buy everything all at once.  Just start with a few sheets of foam and work your way into more foam .... and then more dies.  hee hee 

I've used a few Scrapiniec pieces on my card and embossed both using VersaMark's "Dazzle" and ultra thick embossing powder.  In real life and up close there's a pretty shimmer on the tatting Christmas stars and mistletoe.

Ok!!!  On to more Christmas cards.  LOL!  I think this year I should  make it mandatory to complete 2 xmas cards a month.  Well.....I don't think I could do that.  There's way too many other pretty things out in the crafting world at other times of the year.  hee hee

Snowman Lighted Canvas

So....I don't claim to be a painting artist and in fact, this is only the second canvas I've ever made.  The first one at least had an instructor.  LOL!!  Thanks Cheri!!  I saw this on Pinterest and just HAD to have it but since no one else would make it for me, well ya so you know the rest.  ha ha ha!  I added some some snow texture at the bottom and even tho you can't see it, I've built up some piles and ridges of snow.


Here he is all lighted up.  He's actually not THAT see-through in real life.  Hindsight I would probably make the branches a bit lighter brown but again, you can see it better IRL.


I hope you like it!

December Noor! Design UK Challenge

WOW time sure flies doesn't it?!!  Feels like I was just posting November's challenge and now it's already December.  Although I do find November and December just zoom on by!!  Oh ya, the challenge:


Sometimes when I do a card without an image I feel like I'm cheating but it's a different kind of thing and I love it.   I've used Pion's latest collection called "Christmas Wishes".  I'm sure glad I don't have to come up with idea's of what to name things.  Can you image?!!  😲

As the focal piece I've used Scrapiniec's "Mistletoe Big Baubles"  and added some pearls that I had in my stash.  The sentiment came with the Pion collection so it makes it easy to incorporate them into your card.  Well, maybe I'm speaking for myself because I have a tough time adding sentiments on the front.  The front is for embellishing the crap out of as far as I'm concerned.  HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!

HOW CUTE IS THIS?!!  A reindeer paperclip!  Who would have thought?!!  I've also added a Joycraft "Lacey Cotton Heart" behind the paperclip and those are new to the shop.  Well actually almost all of this card is.  LOL!!

And also new to the shop, Joycraft "Burlap Artificial Flowers Cream" that I popped over top of Joy's "Happy Holidays Poinsettia" die.  I can't take credit for that design as I first saw it when one of my teammates, Emma, did it on one of her cards a few weeks ago.  Well obviously I liked it!!  LOL!!


Are you on overload now?  I've hit you up back to back with Christmas cards.  I hope you're getting ahead on them.  I'm kind of on pause right now but I better get my butt back in gear.  ha ha ha

Thanks for coming by again!

Penguin Warm Winter Wishes Take 2

I couldn't help myself!!  I made another card using this cute stamp - Whimsy's "Penguin Warm Winter Wishes".  These guys are just so cute!!!  Again, I also paired it up with papers from Maja Design's "Joyous Winterdays" collection.  Sooooo luvin' this collection!!!!  Shocker huh?  hee hee

These stars are AWESOME!!!  Studio Light's "Winter Feelings" die pack comes with a variety of some absolutely perfect stars for cards!!  Definitely my favorites right now!  There are some Scrapiniec chipboard pieces that I've first inked up and then added some gorgeous glitter to for some bling and pop.

Here are a few more stars for you and a few WOC flowers for my little bouquet.  AND ... what do you think of my little red peppers from JoyCraft??!!  LOL!!  Did you even really know that's what they are?  JUST FUN!

Here I've used a new Joy die called "Scalloped Edge die w/Flowers" - very pretty - and some more Scrapiniec chipboard that I've colored up called "Nordic Sweater Trees".  I like blue trees!!  LOL!!  That's one thing I really like about Christmas.  Any color goes!!!  There's nothing wrong with non-traditional colors and in fact, sometimes it's a nice change!

I still have my coupon to offer too people:
for a 10% discount but there are so many sales going on in the shop that could
actually mean 50% off depending on the sale.

I'm entering this into Whimsy's challenge:

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Whimsy Stamps Sarah

I do love me a traditional green and red colored Christmas card so for this one I started with picking papers from Maja's new collection "Joyous Winterdays".   As always, Maja has outdone themselves again!  The cute image is from Whimsy Stamps simply called "Sarah".

The Scrapiniec piece I've used here is "Mistletoe Star".  I colored it by simply applying my TH candied apple distress marker directly to the chipboard.  After I finished, for the green I added Ranger crackle accents and for the red I added some red Stickles to change it up a bit.  In the store there is a new set of Joy stamps called "Scrabble Stamp & Die" and that's what I've used to make up my JOY sentiment.  That set is FUN and I can tell already that I'll be using it quite a bit!

I've added a few Scrapiniec "Nordic Sweater Deer" that I added some TH gathered twigs ink to.  The chipboard is very easy to add color as it soaks it up just the right amount.  The lace is called "Aspire" but currently out of stock so if you're looking for it just email Tracy however, there are others in the shop you might be interested in.  😀

Here I've used Joy's "Winter Wishes Lantern" die and then added my usual bouquet of pretty flowers.  I love the new red and green 2-tone pomegranate apples that came into the shop.  They are soooo perfect for Christmas cards!  I've also added some Joycraft Berries into the mix, which are also new.

I still have my coupon to offer too people:
for a 10% discount but there are so many sales going on in the shop that could
actually mean 50% off depending on the sale.

Thanks again for coming by!!  I appreciate all your visits and comments.

Penguin Warm Winter Wishes

Good day!!  Eeeeeeeeee I finally got my Maja Design "Joyous Winterdays" collection and have played just a little.  They are STUNNING and I can't wait to play some more.  I've used some Scrapiniec confetti stars and one teeny heart.  You HAVE to buy some of these!  (Or you could leave them all for me! 😀 ha ha ha!) They come on a sheets of 3 different sizes of stars and hearts.  What a perfect little embellie to add to any card.

I'm also excited to have received Joy's "Winter Wishes Birch Trees" die.  I have wanted something like this for years. Why haven't I bought any until now?  Wellllll, maybe I was waiting for just the right one.  LOL!  I also have the cutest deer from Fantasy wouldn't you say?  

I stamped out MERRY using Joy's new Scrabble Stamp and Die set, distressed the edges and popped them onto a strip of Maja paper.  I've also been at it again making more Foamiran flowers.

I made so many this time I had leftovers!  I've used Whimsy's "Lily/Poinsettia" die as well as their latest "Christmas Branches" die set and OH MY!  There are soooo many amazing dies in this collection that it is just PERFECT to have in your stash.  I know I'll be getting lots of use out of this one!  I added a Prima wax bow, some berries and a gorgeous Scrapiniec tatting chipboard heart.  Oh those are amazing too!

Awwwwwwwwww!!!!  That's all I could think when I seen this adorable image from Whimsy called Penguin Warm Winter Wishes.  I've colored it up with my Copics and added some glitter on most of the fur.

That's all for me today!

My code for 10% off is still ongoing and there are a lot of sales in the store right now.

Again I'm entering into the Whimsy challenge of
Anything Goes!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!
