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!

    Hello, hello!  I've got a project on the Avery Elle blog today using the new Merry Flowers stamp set - won't you go check in out???

    If not, I'll share it here too. ;)

    I adore this little mini stamp set!  These flowers are so wonderful and they completely remind me of my personal decorating Christmas style!

    For my project I decided to make some tags!  I simply never have enough tags at Christmas and I thought this stamp would be perfect!
    I die cut some tags in white cardstock using the new Shaker tags dies.  Then, I stamped and colored in each of the Merry Flower bouquets.  I looped some ribbon and tie it with Cherry Avery Elle twine (I LOVE THIS STUFF)

    Simple and elegant and I love how it turned out!
    It's hard to see but I colored in around the flowers with my lightest blue Copic ink.  Then, I gradually faded the colors so the bottom of the tag is white!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a lovely day!

    Poinsettias on vellum

    Eep!  I'm so excited to share today's card with you.  It's also on the Avery Elle blog too!

    Today's card features the gorgeous new Holiday Bouquet stamp set!

    I love love love the look of elegant flowers heat embossed on vellum!   This trick is a good one and works well for mass production!

    To create my card, I first stamped and heat embossed the images on the vellum.  Then, on the back side, I colored them in with my Copics!  Super easy and it totally has the "wow" factor! 

    Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me! 
    Have a great one!
