Snowball Sam

Happy Friday, every one! =) It's release day over at A Day For Daisies and this week's release is called Snowball. Here is my card made using one of the new images.


I adore the big scarf that he is wearing. It looks so warm and cozy! =)


The image that I used is called Snowball Sam and he is printed on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size. I added some Diamond Stickles to the snow on the ground.


The patterned paper is from Wonderland 6x6 Paper Pad by Studio Calico. I took the advantage of the design of the patterned paper to help me with the design of my card. The sentiment is from Merry Everything set included in Simon Says Stamp's December Card Kit of the Month.

That's all from me. Please go and see what the other design team members created using the images from this release here. You can find all the newly released images here! =)


Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

Berry

Hi ya, all! =) Here is a card that I made using a few stamps from Purple Onion Designs.

I stamped the fun Happy Holidays Noteblock in Fresh Snow ink then added Stacey's Snowflakes over it with Aqua Mist ink. I also added Diamond Stickles to the centers of the snowflakes for a little sparkle.

That's all for now. Don't forget that the Holiday Sale is still going on at Purple Onion Designs. Use code HOL2012 to receive 25% off on all stamps from now through Sunday, December 2nd! =)

This is a project that I made for the Thankful challenge over at Inspiration Journal. This month's challenge theme is to express your gratitude by making thank you gifts/gift holders, place cards, treat holders, tags or any way that can express your love to friends, family or this beautiful season.


I wrapped the 6" embroidery hoop with strips of torn kraft glassine paper. The flowers are cut using the Tattered Flower Garland die and the sentiment is covered with Rock Candy and Antique Linen Distress Stickles.


Why embroidery hoop? Well, I was into embroidery and cross stitching for a little while and have a couple of them sitting around. I don't like making big things and I liked its size for a wreath, so I gave it a go. Hope you likey! =)

washi skyline

Hiya, all! =) Here is a card that I made for Paper Crafts November Gallery Challenge.


This month's challenge is "All About Decorative Tape" and for my love of Japanese washi tape, I'll have to give this challenge a try! =) I covered a piece of cardstock with various washi tapes then die cut the piece with My Favorite Things Solid Skyline die.


I stamped Hero Arts Starry Sky in black on the Smokey Shadow cardstock rectangle and added Diamond Stickles to the larger stars on the background for a little sparkle. The sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday set is stamped with Encore! Ultimate Metallic Gold ink. Also in the photo are the washi tapes that I used for the skyline die cut.

That's it for now. I think the deadline of the gallery challenge is Monday, so there is still time to submit! =)

Coffee & Tea

I used a piece of burlap as the backdrop for the to go cup and the sentiment from Coffee & Tea Set is stamped a little wooden stick. I was thinking about the coffee stirrer you can see at coffee shops. =)
