Ellen Hutson Snailed It

Hey everyone!!!  You should have arrived here from Julie's blog.  If you need to start from the beginning, head to the Classroom!

Have you seen the latest Essentials by Ellen release????  You can find the entire release HERE.

Today, I'm playing with Snailed It - which is seriously the coolest stamp set ever!!!  Every single bit in this stamp set is just so fun!

For my card, I stamped and die cut all of my images and then simply assembled them on a ink blended background.  Love this little scene! 

Next stop, you're off to Carolyn Peeler's blog

Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a wonderful day and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Hope for Hope

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Hop for Hope!

You should have arrived here from the wonderful Donna Mikasa's blog.  In case you just stumbled upon the hop, be certain to start at the Classroom blog so you don't miss a stop!

Like so many, my family has been directly affected by breast cancer.  I've lost two aunts to breast cancer so this hop really does mean a lot to me.

For today's hop, we're all playing with the Courage stamp and die set.  In case you missed the original release of this stamp, for each stamp/die set purchased, $25 will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Here's my card:
While I'd much prefer to never have to give this card, sadly, until there's a cure - I still am faced with way too many instances where I'm having to give cards like this.  This set is as beautiful as it comes. 

I stamped and die cut all of the images.  For the ribbon, I used my distress inks to create an ombre ribbon.  Then, I stamped a lovely sentiment.  

Next stop on the hop is Heather Meeson!  

Thank you so much for stopping by and hoping for hope!

Sledding Critters

Hello everyone!!!  I've got a card on the Avery Elle blog today but am also sharing it here!

Today I'm playing with the new Sledding Critters stamp and die set today!  I love this little stamp because it's relatively easy and already pre-assembled but there are so fun elements that you can add to your sleigh and tree that make it a lot of fun!
To create my card, I colored and die cut the sleigh, string of Christmas lights and the reigns for the sleigh (hint: the curved line that's in this stamp is the designed to be the reigns of the sleigh!)  I added the circles to the tree to make them into ornaments!

Then, to create my background, I used the new Winter Borders die to cut the dots for the snow and the trees for the background.  I stamped my sentiment on the banner is from Wonky Stitches and popped up all of the images on some dimensional foam.  Then, to top if all off, I added some Citrus twine to the top of my card!

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  I hope you have a great day!
