All That Scraps Sweet November Sneak Peek

I've got another sneak peek for you today of one of the new Sweet November stamps from All That Scraps!  

"Chrissy" is one of the SIX adorable new Sweet November images!


I paired some PP from the Echo Park This & That Christmas 6x6 paper pad with some Bazzill Card Shoppe marshmallow and licorice twist CS.  I colored the image with copics.  I added some olive satin center band ribbon.  I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Sentiments stamp set onto the tag and attached it with some black licorice Divine Twine.  I used the MFT Die-Namics icicle die to create the icicle border.

Now head on over to the All That Scraps blog to see some additional sneak peeks.  Release Day is tomorrow so all of the images will be available at All That Scraps then!

I am THRILLED that my first publications are in the October / November issue and I have also had 4 cards picked up for the December / January issue!  If you want to subscribe to the Designed to Color Magazine in either print or digital form, you can do it HERE!

This week we have been re-visiting cards previously made by the Trendsetters with some of the spooky sets:


Today on the There She Goes blog, we are showing off some NEW cards made by the Trendsetters with these previously released sets.  I decided to play along with the Mojo Challenge #263 using the Hauntingly Delightful set.


I paired some PP from the Doodlebug Design "Haunted Manor" 6x6 paper pad with some Bazzill Card Shoppe gummy bear and licorice twist CS.  I used the MFT Die-namics circle STAX sets 1 and 2, the fishtail flag STAX, and the mini tabs quartet dies.  I added a PTI black button and some black licorice Divine Twine from the Ribbon Carousel.

Kraftin' Kimmie October Release Preview - Winter Trinkets


The weather is getting a little cooler....we're putting away our flip flops and shorts and pulling out our fuzzy sweaters and warm socks!! We're celebrating winter at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ...and lots more!! (You'll have to wait until later in the week to see what other themes we have up our sleeves!!) Get ready for our OCTOBER 2012 RELEASE!!!!! 



We are kicking off the *New* OCTOBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and first off, we’d like to introduce you to a beautiful new set of Trinkets!!! We are very excited to share with you our….WINTER TRINKETS!!! 


These circular sentiment stamps have been created and designed by the totally talented Krafty Girl, Nicole Aspinall!! They are made especially to fit in your 1 3/8ths and 1 ¾ inch punches, for quick and easy cutting!!! This month we are releasing the WINTER Trinkets set which includes EIGHT trinkets in each set with four of each size and they come as both positive and negative images, so you can use your black or brown ink with the positive stamps and use your coloured inks with the negative ones!! You will get the set as a completely unmounted full sheet of deeply etched grey rubber.


All of the Krafty Girls are cardmakers primarily and we have found these to be such a quick and easy way to add a sentiment to our creations or to use as the focal point on our cards! They are also perfect for your Smashbook pages and your scrapbook pages, not to mention your altered items and tags!! No stamper's stash is complete without them! 



If you follow my blog, you may have seen the hot cocoa holders I made last week.  You can see them HERE as well as the directions on how to make them.  When I got my hands on the new Winter Trinkets, I had to make some more!  



This Winter Trinket is PERFECT for hot cocoa holders!  I stamped the the trinket twice onto Bazzill Card Shoppe butter mints CS in Momento rich cocoa ink.  I used a 1" circle punch to pop out the center of of the trinkets so that I could pop it up with a foam square and layer it over the 2nd one for added dimension.  I used my copics to color the mug.  I popped out he 2nd stamped trinket with a 1.75" circle punch and layered it over a 2" scallop circle.  I used Bazzill Card Shoppe wax lips CS and PP from the Echo Park Season's Greetings collection.   I added some olive / lime two-tone grosgrain ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.

TSG Blog Hop Challenge - Just For You Halloween Additions

We are now on day two of this month's SPECIAL Halloween release, and today we have something I think you are going to LOVE!! It's another twist on an older There She Goes set, and we are SUPER excited about it!!

Introducing Just for You - Halloween Additions!


I made these fun hot cocoa holders with this new stamp set and die!  
They are so easy to make!  
  1. Adhere a piece of 4 1/2 x 7 3/4 piece of cardstock over a 5 1/2 x 7/3/4 piece of card stock.
  2. Score it at 1/2" from one end and 3 5/8 from the other end.   
  3. Fold along the score lines and use some red line tape so secure it.
  4. Round the bottom two corners with a corner chomper  
  5. Use a hole puncher to punch a hole at the top.  
  6. Thread the ribbon through the holes and then push a hot cocoa packet down into the holder.  
  7. The ribbon keeps it from falling out of the bottom.  
  8. Tie the ribbon in a bow to keep the hot cocoa from falling out of the top.



Created by Torico to go along with the original Just For You set, this Halloween Additions set is perfect for all your Halloween gift giving needs. Not only has she created some of the CUTEST images and sayings, there are now DIES to go along with it!! 

*The circles can be punched out with a 1 3/8 in. punch

MOJO262 - For a Deer Friend

I just love this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge so I decided to play along and show off some of the newly released C.C.Designs stamps and one of the new dies. 




I started off by stamping the Joy Music stamp in Momento rich cocoa ink onto Bazzill Card Shoppe butter mints CS.   I used my MFT Die-namics circle STAX sets 1 and  to cut and mat the background panel.   I stamped the Sing Loud reindeer image, colored him with copics, and cut him out.  I popped him up a foam square and added some Diamond Glaze to his nose to give it some shine.  I used the new C.C. Designs Cutters Bells die, colored the bell with copics and used a clear star Gelly Roll pen to give it some shimmer.  I used some natural jute to tie it onto the PTI scarlet jewel twill ribbon bow.  I paired some PP from the Simple Stories Handmade Holidays 6x6 paper pad with some PTI scarlet jewel and ripe avacado CS and some Bazzill Card Shoppe candy bar CS.  I used the MFT Die-Namics Fishtail Flag STAX and used a white gel pen to add some faux stitching.  Finall, I stamped a sentiment from the Winter Sentiments set in Momento rich cocoa ink.  

Here is the sketch:
