MOJO269 - Happily Ever After

I know I am not the only one who couldn't resist all the Black Friday sales in crafty cyber space.  All of my little purchases are starting to come in!  While I REALLY should be working on my design team work to keep ahead given that December is a busy month, I couldn't help but drop everything and ink up one of my new purchases.  

I have been eye balling the adorable Tiddly Inks CLEAR stamp sets for quite some time.  Black Friday gave me an excuse to pull the trigger so I bought the Happily Ever After set. 


I paired some PP from the MME Lost & Found Ruby 6x6 paper pad with some Baxxill Card Shoppe licorice twist and some PTI sweet blush CS. I used my MFT Die-Namics circle STAX to cut out the heart and I did some fussy cutting so I could pop the couple up with foam dimensionals.

Sweet November Evie

Have you seen the new Sweet November images images from the November release?!  Ack! I love them all!  Today I am showing off Evie!

Designs Winter Chuckles sentiments set.

Season's Greetings Tag

With Thanksgiving behind me,now I can turn my attention to Christmas!  
I love adding some handmade tags when wrapping Christmas gifts. 
Today I made a few of these cute tags using both the There She Goes Ho Ho Ho stamp set and the Season's Greetings stamp set.


I die cut the tag using the PTI Tag Sale #3 die from Bazzill Card Shoppe peanut cluster card stock.  I used a stipple brush and some PTI fresh snow ink.  I do think it is the best white ink around.  It really provides a lot of coverage.  I tore some white CS to create the drifts of snow and added some slitter to the edges.  I colored my images with copics and glittered the edges of the layers of branches.  I popped the reindeer up with a foam dimensional and then added some white opal Liquid Pearls at his feet and at the base f the tree.  I quickly added some glitter to the Liquid Pearls before they dried.  I used some dark brown hemp cord for the tag.

We've got a new challenge for you this week on the Kraftin' Kimmie blog!  This week's theme is "Feeling Festive" so lets see a Christmas card or Holiday card from you!

I inked up one of the adorable images from the Holiday Lulu and Libby stamp set.


I colored the image with copics and added some clear star gelly roll pen to the bell and the belt buckle.  I heat embossed the snowflakes on the Bazzill Card Shoppe peanut cluster background with white embossing powder. I used some PP from the Echo Park This and That Christmas and paired it with some Bazzill Card shoppe waw lips and licorice twist card stock.  I used the MFT Die-Namics circle STAX sets 1 and 2.   

I am also playing along with the MOJO Monday 268 challenge.

TSG Blog Hop Challenge - Snow Buddies & Snowman Sentiments

Our final day of Blog Hop Challenges for this release, and we have two FABULOUS sets from Melyssa!! Let's get started!!

Snowbuddies, the new set from Melyssa, has SO many possible ways to be used; we can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are about it! With a whopping 57 stamps, you can build your own snowman, use one provided, or a little of both. It’s the easiest way to build a snowman, and you don’t even have to get cold to do it. ;)



I went CAS for this card.  I didn't intend to and I was sifting through my 6x6 paper pads.  I put the image down on the card base to look and VOILA!  It was just too cute as it so I stepped away from the PP.   I sponged some clouds behind the snowmen and did some masking so I could layer one slightly in front of the other,   I paper pieced the scarf and colored the rest of the image with copics.  I tore some paper and glittered the edges to create the snow mounds.  The CS is Bazzill Card Shoppe icy mint and licorice twist.

All That Scraps Birdie Day preview

Just when you thought the November C.C. Designs release was over, we're back with an extra special treat!  We're previewing one more stamp set with some coordinating dies that will be released tomorrow in the All That Scraps store!    

Introducing Birdie Day!


I went the CAS route with this first card.  I used some Bazzill Card Shoppe marshmallow and banana spolit CS and added some natural jute.

And in my next card, I am using the same stamp set, but I am also showing off 
the new C.C. Cutters tree die.


I paired some PP from the Simple Stories Take a Hike 6x6 paper pad with some Bazzill Card Shoppe banana split, marshmallow, candy corn, wax lips and candy bar CS.   The little leaves are included with the tree die as well as a couple of clouds which I did not use on this card.

Now head right on over to the All That Scraps blog for some additional sneak peeks from my fellow design team members!
