Merry Monday #180 - Festive Holiday Wishes

It's the time for making Christmas cards and couldn't resist but playing over at Merry Monday #180 with the challenge of using reindeer on it. Plus it gives me a chance to get moving on building my Christmas card stash. 

Here is my card:
I'm in love with these reindeer's from the Reindeer Games stamp set of Mama Elephant with all of the accessories and fun poses. Plus, I adore this exclusive Scallop Frames die from Pretty Pink Posh's latest release so I had to pull out some silver glitter cardstock and use it.

To create the scene, I die cut the hills first using Landscape Trio (mama elephant) and the cloud piece was from the Puffy Cloud Border (lawn fawn) where I sponged on a little ink (Sea Glass - SSS). to all three hills.

For the sky, I sponged more ink, Duckling and Cotton Candy from (SSS) since I love how these inks work for blending. Added some Mini Snowflakes from Lawn Fawn along with stamping the sentiment from the Jingle Greetings set.

Colored the reindeers and accessories with my copics and added in some Winter Snow Mix sequins from Pretty Pink Posh since I wanted to shake things up a little. Do you love making shakers?

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge, please stop over to check out all the inspiration.

Wishing you Sunny Days with Little Critters

Here is another card I created to let one of my friends know I'm thinking of them and to wish better days ahead. Also using these adorable little critters again from the Holiday Pals where I can't get enough of them. 

Here is my card:
For the background, I created the sky and grass with inks and blending tool where I than die cut using the squares from the Stitched Duo 3  keeping the same order of the cut to keep the scene. Than, I couldn't resist but to add these cute bows on each of them.

Aren't these little umbrellas cute? They are from the new Rainy Days stamp set along with the clouds that you can add smiley faces to. So many ideas come to mind, but for now, this card is to wish better days ahead and thought this would be perfect. 

Here I popped up the umbrellas to add a little dimension. I must say, I'm loving the new Pretty Pink Posh release with these stamps.

Wishing You Sunshine!

Since November is a month of spreading kindness to others, I thought I would create a card to cheer someone up so I decided to use these new adorable stamp sets from Pretty Pink Posh from her latest November release. Hopefully the recepient enjoys the card and surprise I'm sending. 

Here is my card:
For this card, I combined Holiday Pals with the Rainy Days stamp set. For the umbrella, I die cut the largest one and colored it using my copic markers. Than, I added some polka dots with my white sharpie marker. So many ideas come to mind using this set, but wanted to create a card to cheer someone up. 

Plus, it gave me a chance to use this adorable Stitched Photo Frame and Holly Jolly sequin mix where I added both 4m and 6m sizes. For final touch, added these 4m and 6m Clear Droplets.

I'm loving these stamps, dies, and sequins, so I hope in sending this card, it will cheer her up. Also, looking forward to seeing more inspiration from Pretty Pink Posh's Blog hop that is scheduled to go live on Thursday Nov 12th & Friday Nov 13th. Check out her facebook blog hop event by clicking here. 

As you can tell, I love creating shakers, playing with sequins, dies, and stamps. Have fun!

One More Treat for Halloween

Normally, I take pictures of the projects, but somehow in a rush to get these to the staff for Halloween, I realized I forgot to take a picture of the red pirate version for the men. I know we are done with Halloween, but wanted to get this posted to share since I love these little ghosts from the Booyah set.
I was so excited these little treats were fast to make and the Decorative Tag die came in so handy. Since I ran out of clear droplets, I added some marshmallow sequins instead. For the sentiment, I started off by embossing in black, but after doing a few treats, I thought it would go faster just to stamp it using black.

If you missed the tutorial on how to make this along with the measurements, please click here. I would like to see what you come up with. Have Fun!

Here are the main ingredients:

Happy Halloween with more Ghosts

Here is the second Halloween card I mentioned where I got to play with some more ghosts from the Booyah stamp set from Lawn Fawn using some of my favorite colors, Electric Red, Blue, White, and Black.  

Here, I wanted to create a clean and simple look so I pulled out one of my favorites...Storybook 1 die from  Pretty Pink Posh. I love this die as it's so easy to create little scenes in addition to all the stitching! 

To cut the frame, I used the small rectangle of blueprints 20 (MFT) and put the Storybook 1 die in the center. Next, I grabbed some paper from the Let's Bokeh in the Snow pack and ran through the big shot to get the stitched squares.

Colored in these ghosts and accessories using my copic markers and since I've been loving the embossed look, once again, used white embossing powder for the sentiment. I did use some foam mount under the ghosts and sentiment to pop it up a little.

For final touches, I took my white sharpie pen and added some details along with adding a few  sparkling clear  sequins. Joining again, over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge with "Anything Goes" 

Do you like this color combination? As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge, please stop over to check out all the inspiration.

Happy Halloween with Booyah

Wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween and hope everyone has some fun tonight with some trick and treats! Joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge with "Anything Goes" 

Here is my card:
Just got this set late last week called: Booyah from Lawn Fawn and love all the variations of ghosts you can create along with the spiders, treats, and little accessories.

Also, had to play again with these fun Spooky sequins mix so I created another shaker card using this cute Stitched Duo 3 die from Pretty Pink PoshAlso, using the paper from the Let's Bokeh in the Snow pack from Lawn Fawn.

Look at those fun little pumpkins and colorful array of sequin. Plus those cute little spiders that were easy to just stamp in black with. Can you tell....I love sequins? 

Just loving these ghosts and playing with more of them so hopefully get one more card done before tonight. The sentiment was embossed again using some white powder by Ranger.
