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!

Relax With Wine

Good day!  Just wanted to share a card I made for my MIL's bday.  I've used some papers from my favorite collection of the year from Pion - Summer Falls into Autumn.  I'm pretty sure this is the last card I have to show you from that collection.  LOL!!  I've used some sunflowers from my stash that I bought from Magnolia-licious years ago.  So cute!

Isn't this little wine bottle adorable?!!  I have 4 and now I'm down to 1.  Dang I knew I should have bought more.  LOL!!  

I decided to make a shaker card and add little wine glasses for the shakes.  LOL!!

This image is from Make It Crafty by Krista Smith called "Relax With Wine".  Don't mind if I do!  LOL!  Yes she is still doing a few things here and there so YAY for us!!

I've colored her with Copics and even drew in some marks on the table to make it look like a wood table.  I thought I was pretty clever with that seeing as I just learned it taking one of the courses from Kit & Clowder.  hee hee

Have a great week all!

Whimsy's Winter Friends

Good day and welcome back!!  Today I'm sharing Whimsy's UBER cute "Winter Friends" image paired with Pion's "The Night Before Christmas" papers.  Oh!!  And it would be rude of me not to mention that these papers are on SALE!!!  😀  If you're like me and you have a big list, making Christmas cards a bit more inexpensive is right up my ally!!  I've used this new gorgeous Joy "Merry Christmas" die at the top and at the bottom I added a layer of "Lace Margaret".

I took a sentiment from the Pion's border page in this collection and popped it up using some foam dots.  Also layered a vintage metal snowflake under a couple of Wild Orchid flowers.

I made a poinsettia using some burgundy Foamiran, Whimy's Lily/Poinsettia die, 2mm lemon teardrop stamen and Whimsy's Peony leaf die.  

Well that's my share for this week!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I will be back next week with another Christmas card!  Yup imagine that!  LOL!!!  Tis the season right?  How are you making out with yours?

Wine Tasting Tilda

Hey guess what?!!  I'm back with some more papers from Pion's "Summer Falls into Autumn".  ha ha ha!  I may have mentioned that this has been my most favorite collection EVAH!!  😄  I've had this Joy "Butterfly Frame" in my stash that I am happy to say I FINALLY got to use!  I added some of Joy's "Vintage Flourishes Butterflies" over top for more dimension.  If you're liking that "Butterfly Frame" it's even on sale right now.  The little butterflies are not in stock any more but if you'd like them just sent Tracy an email.  She may be able to get them for you.

OH MY GOSH!!!  And you see that super cute wine bottle?  I had that in my stash for so long they're no longer in stock anymore but I just HAD to share it with you.  Again, if you like it, see if Tracy would be able get more in for you.  I attached a seam binding bow to it and added a few more flowers here and there that you can find in the store.  The green branches are a Fantasy die called "Small Branches".  There's also a bigger one that I sometimes mix together to change the look of my foliage.   

Ooooo I just love these gorgeous sparkly pieces.  This is "Button Alexis" and it comes in 8 different colors.  I also added a layer of "Lace Aspire" and some more Wild Orchid flowers.

This is Magnolia's "Wine Tasting Tilda" that I've colored up using my Copics.  She's still in stock so a perfect little image to use for those wine luvin' friends!  Don't we all have at least one?  Or 2...maybe 3???  hee hee

Well there's my cute little card for this week.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will be back again next week to share something other than my favorite Pion papers. HA HA HA HA!!

Merry Christmas

I'm back this week with another Christmas card using "Craft and You" papers again.  This particular piece is "Silent Night - 02".  When I first got the sheets and flipped through them I knew I had to use this gorgeous image as a focal piece.  Well that and Joy's new "Merry Christmas Border". I tried to keep it a bit more simple so those two items came through on the card and weren't hidden with all my embellishments.  NOT EASY!!  LOL!!

This is a new Joy "Winter Wishes Lantern" die.  I added some yellow cardstock into the lamps so they look like they're on.  So cute!  Oh and that little sliver charm reindeer is just the cutest too wouldn't you agree?  😀

These poinsettia's are also by Joy Crafts Crafty Cocktail "Poinsettia Stamp and Die".  I topped all of them off with a rustic bell and some Prima Wax cord.  Oh and I also added a vintage metal snowflake behind them.

I hope you've enjoyed, what I consider a CAS card from me this week.

Thank you for stopping by!

Winter Cottages

This week I've used some pretty papers from Craft and You called "Silent Night".  I've done something a little different for me and colored a winter scene using my distress inks.

I've used an image from the most amazing set of stamps from Wild Rose Studio  called "Winter Cottages".  There are a number of good sized images as well as some great sentiment stamps and these cute little tags.  I also added some Snow-Tex to the roof and trees and a bit of glitter to the ground.

I made these flowers using white Foamiran and Whimsy's Lily/Poinsettia die.  I added some foliage using Rosy Owl's "Elegant Leaves", Fantasy's "Big Branches" die as well as Fantasy's "Small Branches" die.  These are both perfect dies to have in your stash by the way.  😀  I also added a Prima wax cord bow and some pine cones.  

I am luvin' the latest Joy "Happy Holidays Pine Tree" and "Happy Holidays Elk" dies too.  So cute and easy additions to any winter card or even masculine card.

Here's one of the tags I mentioned above:

So there you have my design for this week!!

Foamiran Explosion Box

Last year Pion Design came out with a very interesting collection called "The Witching Hour".  Of course I LOVED it but I know some of you don't celebrate Halloween so I wanted to share how you could use some of these most amazing papers for an everyday project.  I think that the black accents in this collection are also perfect for masculine cards so I love having them in my personal store.  😁😁

I decided to create an explosion box to get a chance to feature the papers and some handmade flowers.  This is a picture heavy post so I hope you enjoy!

I've used apple white Foamiran and inked them with a TH ink cube and some daubers.   OH MY is this ever messy when you twist them but sooooo worth it!  I made the bigger flowers using Whimsy's peony die and die cut the leaves from the leaf die that comes with that set. 

I've added a bow using some wax cord from Prima, which is available in the store in a great selection of various colors.  There are some black and cream colored stamens  in the centers but the bigger black ones are ball and rose shaped bases (see product list below) which aren't in stock right now but are coming.  In order to make them black, I actually dipped them right into a bottle of black distress ink and then let them dry.

Here is a flower I made using Whimsy's lily die, which also has some pieces in it for making a poinsettia.  What a great set to have in your stash!  I added some vintage cream stamens and covered the ends with gold Stickles.

BAM!!!  And here's the center of the box!!!  Ooooooooo so much to look at!

I used a couple of chipboard pieces from Wycinanka and a bronze butterfly and owl.  I even took a die cut from Joy's Circle Floral Hexagon die and cut it in 4 to fit over some of the corners.

I distressed the edges of a Scrapiniec butterfly, cut out a Pion butterfly and added a nib to the top as part of the main feature. 

Here are more Foamiran flowers but this time I used Rosy Owl "Flower Dies 1" and again added a mixture of stamens.  Under the flowers I added some metal leaves for a bit more gold.

Ok so my latest that took me HOURS to finish!  LOL!!

Penguin Pumpkin Patch

I CAN'T HELP MYSELF!  I'm addicted to Pion's "Summer Falls into Autumn" papers!!  I think this is the most amount of fall cards I have ever made.  4!  😀  I wish I could say it was more as I love the fall colors and time of year but it goes by so stinkin' fast!  

On Pion's "tags" sheet there are 4 patterned circles so I used each one for this card.  I also added a butterfly from the borders sheet and some Scrapiniec's "Grapevine - Set of Grapes" between layers.  

I've used some flowers from my stash because some of these colors aren't in the store however, I have used many flowers that are available such as the chrysanthemum, magnolia, carnation and cherry blossom.  I die cut a bunch of leaves from Joy's "Autumn Leaves" die, WHICH IS ON SALE, and put them everywhere!  I even used Fantasy's "Small Branches" die and I can see using that one many more times to come.  It's not very visible but I used some "Lace Henrietta" at the bottom but tea dyed it as I didn't want it to be stark white.  I think I'll do that to a few more pieces of lace.  It works very well!

This stamp from Whimsy called "Penguin Pumpkin Patch" is sooooooo stinkin' cute OH MY! 😮  I colored them using my Copics and listed the combo's below.  I see this specific one is out of stock but there are many others and if you're looking for this one still just ask Tracy as she will try her best to get it in for you.

Tiddly Inks

I made a wedding card for a friend but used things that I've just had in my stash for awhile.  The paper and heart die tags are from Magnolia, the heart border die cut is from Joy! and the laces are from Noor! Design UK.  

Isn't this little book cute?!  I had some mini ones in my stash so thought adding "I Do" would be perfect!!  The flowers are mostly from Wild Orchid Crafts and also from my stash. 

Another piece from my stash - hey you know what?  This feels really good to say "from my stash"!  LOL!!!  The wedding cake is a resin piece from Prima.

Well, that's about it for this one.  OMG THE IMAGE!!  ha ha ha!  I'm sure most of you would recognize it but it is a Tiddly Inks image called "Garden Wedding".  Love Kristy's images but I don't get enough time to color everything!  Maybe when I'm retired.  LOL!!

I'm also going to enter my card into a challenge that is going on at Tiddly Inks right now and the category is "Anything Goes" and maybe "Floral" for her bouquet but I might be reaching there.  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great short week!
