O Christmas Tree - TLC Designs

Hi there and I hope all is well with you and yours.  Today's card is a CAS and I've used the tree from TLC Designs newly released Gnomeone digital stamp set.  The sentiment is one from the Snow Family Fun Tree set.  

This was a very quick and easy card to do, I simply printed the image and sentiment, added a little colouring and it's done!

Holiday Tags - The End (well, almost)!

Hi!  I'll have one more post after this with Christmas tags.  Gotta tell ya, I love making them but this time I took on a bit too much.  Seemed like a good idea at the time so I cut out 16 of them... then it's time to colour and it seemed like it would never end!  But in the end, I have a healthy stash of tags plus I have enough extra to give away.

The digital image is from a company called Pink Petticoat and then they changed to The Lovely Studio but I can't find them anywhere now so I think she's closed shop.  Such a shame because she had the cutest images.  

The tag die is Avery Elle's Easy Layers Tags Elle-ments and it is fabulous!  It's considerably larger than any other tag die I have and they will surely stand out on any gift.  I have one more tag post and then am completely done with tags for 2021!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Holiday Hang Out Shaker - Trinity Stamps

Hi there! Well, time is ticking and now seems to be the big push for me to get my holiday cards and tags done because Christmas will be here before we know it!
Today's card is a shaker I made with Trinity Stamps Holiday Hang Out stamp set and the coordinating Holiday Hang Out die set. I quite like shaker cards and they get quicker and easier the more I make.

The sentiment is from the same set and the clay shaker bits are Trinity's Mints Embellishments and Mint to Be (these are the bigger ones and such a cute name).

Be sure to check out all the great stamps, dies and other product at Trinity Stamps. The Trinity Stamps Facebook Page has plenty ideas, inspiration and the Trinity Stamps Facebook Community Group to connect with other Trinity Stamps fans.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Namasleigh - Three Room Studio Challengee #63


Happy Saturday!  Can you believe there's only four more Saturdays until Christmas?

Time for another challenge at Three Room Studio and this week's theme is to create a project with a CAS theme (Clean and Simple).

For my card I've used one of the images from the newly released Namasleigh digital stamp set which is so cute (don't you just love that man bun?) and such a good value because in there's four images and two sentiments in the package plus you have the option of adding the bun or not. I used an embossing folder for the background and then taped two circle dies together to get the 'wider on one side' shape, coloured the image and the card is done!  

Here's the list of my fellow Design Team members who are also participating:

New Home - Pink Petticoat

I wanted to make a card for a dear friend who is moving into a new place and the digital image
 called In My Garden from Pink Petticoat fits the bill.  Sadly, this company isn't in business anymore and I miss it because she had some cute images.  I know she was done for awhile and then came back under The Lovely Studio but that appears to be gone now too.

I used a die from Marianne Design Craftables #1248, coloured the image with Copics and it was done in a flash.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good week!

Oddball Reindeer - Stamping Bella

Hi there and I hope you are fine.  It's cold here and we have a bit of snow...  of course, when I say cold, it's not terribly cold.  If this was the first day in spring with this temperature we'd probably all be outside without a jacket and talking about what a lovely day it is!

Like almost everyone else, I'm getting pressed for time with getting my Christmas cards finished and the push is on!  These three cards were made with the Oddball Reindeer from Stamping Bella.  I've said it before but these Oddball images ae just the best and some of my favourite stamps!

This is a great stamp set because you get all three images plus the sentiment.  

I have to remember to make these images into Christmas tags for next year... they would be such fun on a package!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love is in the Air - All Dressed Up Challenge

Hi there!

It's time for a new challenge at All Dressed Up stamps and I've used the Love is in the Air digi image.  I used Tumbled Glass distress ink and a cloud template to make the clouds and then spattered the distress ink over what I had already done.

Be sure to head on over to the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog where you can see all kinds of inspiration from the rest of the girls on the team. Join us for some fun and wonderful creations at the Facebook Fan Page, Facebook Challenge (there is a theme for this one) and there's also a Pinterest page to view some more gorgeousness.

Oddball Marilyn - Stamping Bella


I can never get enough of the Stamping Bellas and this one just cracks me up too... love those eyes and I also think it's a terrific sentiment.  This one is Oddball Marilyn and the card is going to my daughter for her birthday because she's a very glitzy, sparkly glamour queen herself.

I wanted to try something different for the background but was a little timid because I didn't want to wreck the card with it being coloured and almost finished but the next one will have more purple in it.  After I had finished colouring the image, I masked it and scrubbed Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves  and Faded Jeans distress ink.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Congratulations - Three Room Studio Challenge

Hi there!  Today's post is for Three Room Studio's Saturday Challenge where the theme this week is 'Celebration' which is a great theme because it's open your interpretation and can be anything from celebrating a birthday, a new baby or just that you woke up to a wonderful day!

I used the Yay stamp set for the image and sentiment and this is another of my favourite Three Room Studio sets and I've used it many times.  The background is sponged with Tumbled Glass and Seedless Preserves distress ink and then ran it through my Big Shot with the Star Ray Full Stencil to emboss it and raise the stars.  When finished embossing and with the stencil still taped in place, I sponged Picket Fence over the stars.  Of course now it seems I could have been much bolder with the colours because it didn't photograph very well but it will be a good Congratulations card for someone on my list.

Karen is this week's host and the following team members are participating in the challenge:
