Pinecones

Hello!!
I'm joining in on the FUN with the Paper Trey Inks November Blog Hop!! We were given some Photos as Inspiration and this one made me think of the BEAUTIFUL Wreaths I see EVERYWHERE!! So I decided to pull out my MUCH LOVED Rustic Wreath Stamp Set along with the Music Images from the Songbirds Stamp Set and the Holly Jolly Die Collection  to create the Holly for the top of my Wreath and then I used the Pine Boughs Die Collection to create my Pine Cones!! I just Folded them in half and Distressed them!! Then I added some Martha Stewart Coarse Clear Glitter!! I then added a Rusty Snowflake and Jingle Bell and some Red Metallic Sequins for the Holly Berries!! I stamped my sentiment and my card was done!!







THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a
FABULOUS THANKSGIVING WEEK!!

I have made SEVERAL Projects to share with you today in hopes of giving you so different ideas on some different Tags you can create depending on your style!! For my first tag I wanted to create a Melting Felt Snowman!! I just LOVE the New Paper Smooches Cool Dudes Stamp Set!! I die cut some Rustic White Felt pieces using the PS Ovals 1 Dies and then I stamped and Embossed the Hat onto some Black Cardstock using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder!! I then took my Glue Pen and added Red Martha Stewart Glitter to the Band on the Hat!! I stamped and Embossed the Nose too and then Fussy Cut it out and added some Wiggly Eyes and stamped the mouth using some MFT Hybrid Ink in Black!! This INK ROCKS for stamping on Felt!! I created some Rusty Wire Arms and a Scarf and added it to a Large PS Quote Tag Die that I die cut to create a Folded Tag!! I stamped on the front of the Tag using the PS Potpourri Stamp Set!! I then splattered some Black Soot Distress Ink and added a PS Toppers Die Cut and added a Ribbon and my Tag was finished!! For the inside I Die Cut the Largest PS Ovals 1 Die and then stamped the Sentiment from the PS Cool Dudes Stamp Set and then added my Gift Card!! Such a FUN and EASY way to Decorate a Gift and make it useful at the same time!!  =)




My Next Tag is a Shaker Tag!! =)
I've used the PS Cool Dudes Stamp Set again along with the PS Ovals 1 Dies to create my opening and the base for my Shaker Tag!! I also used the PS Stitched Tag Die and the Large PS Quote Tag Die!! I wanted a Cute Little Hat for the Baby Snowman from the PS Cool Dudes Stamp Set and realized that the Small Hat in the Santa Paws Stamp Set is the PERFECT Size!! I also die cut some Felt Holly for the Top of my Tag using the Holly Dies from the New PS Christmas Words 2 Die Set!! I LOVE the Way it turned out!!



I wanted to create a Family Styled Tag and decided it would be FUN to use the Snowmen and do some Masking!! I LOVE the way they turned out!!


I also thought it would be FUN to create some Polaroid Styled Tags!! So I started by Die Cutting the PS Polaroid Dies!!  I then stamped my Sweet Little Christmas Tree Scene using the PS All Yule Need Stamp Set!! I used Twinkling H2O's to color them in and then used the To: and From: Stamps on the Back of the Tags from the PS Christmas Sampler Stamp Set!!


 
My next Tag is a REALLY Simple Design, but I think it packs a PUNCH!!?? I started with the PS Stitched Tag Die and cut it to create a Folded Tag!! I then took the PS Poinsettia Dies and Die Cut several layers from both Felt and Lace!! I layered them together and added a Vintage Button for the Center!! I stamped the sentiment from the New PS A Blessed Christmas Stamp Set!!

 
I hope you've ENJOYED my Tag Inspiration for today!!?? I had SO MUCH FUN creating them for you!! Don't forget!! Leave a comment here on my blog to enter to win one of the awesome prizes Tracey has - and click the link at the top of my post for another chance!!

Paper Smooches Holiday Card!! =)

Pin It



Hello!!
I'm stopping in to share a Holiday Card I've made for two different Challenges going on over on the Paper Smooches Blog!! I'm entering this into the Guest Designer Search - December Challenge and the Anything Goes Challenge on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog!! =)


I started by using one of my New Favorite Paper Smooches Stamp Set "A Blessed Christmas"!!
I LOVE EVERYTHING about this set and have SO MANY Ideas with the Images/Sentiments in the Set!! Now if I only had an EXTRA 4-6 Hours in a Day to be able to make them ALL!! HAHAHAHA!! =)


I wanted to use the Angel Image and I wanted to give her some Dimension by making the Wings 3-D!! I LOVE to add dimension to my cards and this was SUPER easy to do just by stamping and cutting the Wings out a couple different times!!  I cut the entire Wing Section out and then cut just the Large Single Wing Image out making sure to color around the edge of the Wings with a Black Soot Distress Marker to give them a seamless and finished look once all of the pieces were layered together!! I used my Color Pencils and Gamsol to color in my Angel and then I added some Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the wings for some added Sparkle!! I Die Cut a Stitched Frame 1 Die Cut from some White Neenah Solar Cardstock and stamped and Embossed the Holy Star Image using some Ranger Platinum Gold Embossing Powder!! Then to make it POP I stamped over it again off setting the Star alittle bit this time using my Versa Fine Black Ink and I LOVE the way it looks!! I added some Clear Embossing Powder over the Top just to finish it off and to make sure that I didn't end up with a smudge from Ink transfer!! =) I then took some Vellum and a White Neenah Solar Cardstock Panel and stitched across the top with my Sewing Machine and some Platinum Metallic Thread!! I then masked my Sentiment so I could repeat the same Platinum Embossing Powder treatment to the Peace word and then I stamped the rest of the sentiment in plain Versa Fine Black Ink and again covered it with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder to make sure I didn't have any Ink smears!! I added some Clear Crystal Pretty Pink Posh Sequins in 4mm size along with some Platinum Sequins from Hazel and Ruby!! I LOVE the little bit of extra Sparkle and FUN that they add and my Card was finished!!




Hopefully you Like my card as much as I do and I hope you'll think about playing along with one of these challenges too!!?? The Guest Designer Challenge ends tonight November 19th at 11:59 pm and the Anything Goes Challenge Deadline is Saturday, November 22nd at 11:59 pm PST !!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!

Paper Sweeties November Release Party!! =)

Pin It


Hello!!
Are you ready for the Paper Sweeties November Release Party!!  =)
I've made a FUN Gift Tag today that can be used to adorn just about ANY type of gift!!  I thought it would be FUN to create a Card for the front of my Tag just by Die cutting the Mug from the Sweet Cuts ~ Homemade With Love Die Set on a fold Line and then adding a Die Cut and Heat Embossed Mug to the top for a Finished look using the Homemade With Love Stamp Set!! I stamped the BEAUTIFUL Floral Image from the Happy Holidays Stamp Set in Versa Mark and then added Judikins Sticky Stuff and added some Martha Stewart Glitter after it was Heat Embossed!! I LOVE the way it looks on the side of the Mug!! I've also used the Sentiment from the Homemade With Love Stamp Set and I've Embossed it in several different colors along with adding the same Glitter to the Hearts!!



 Hopefully you can see just how BEAUTIFUL this is and the Sparkle that it gives off!! 
Now you need to go and visit the other AMAZING DT Blogs to see what they have created for today's Sneak Peek!!  Then you'll have to come back tomorrow for the
