Just Chillin'

Hi!  It seems like forever since I've posted!
Today It's really super cold and snowy. A great day for
staying inside and making a card.
I made this card to play along with the Free 4 All challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
The challenge was to make a card using the Wrinkle-Free Distress technique
for the background. You can find the tutorial HERE.
Making the background was fun.  To finish the card I stamped the ice fishing bunny
first on the background piece and then again on white cardstock which I then colored and cut out and layered over top the stamped image on the pretty background.
Here's what I did for the inside:
Still left lots of room to write what you want.
Here's the supplies I used:
Thanks for stopping by today.
Stay warm!
'till next time

I'm still making Christmas Cards and tags, however today's card
is for a special cousin's birthday this week.
and this is the inside:
I used My Favorite Things gifting fun stamp set and
the gifting fun Die-namics and sweet stack labels Die-namics.
This is a CASE (copy and share everything)
of Barbara Anders who is one of the MFT design team members.
You can check out her card HERE!

Sparkly Angel

This week on the
the challenge is to "Bling It On!"
This card is clean and simple
(I used paper smooches stamps)
but totally sparkled up!
Here's a closer look:
My Friend Diana thinks that "Bling it On" should involve layers and flourishes and gems...
so I'm off to give that a try.
So out of my comfort zone, but if it works out I'll post it later.
'till then,

Wonderful Wednesday

E00, E11, R20, G05, G09, G28
It's hard to see in the picture, but the is plenty of sparkle on the packages...
looks much better  IRL.
Thanks for stopping by.

Santa Dog Tag

I'm making tags today....
this is my favorite so far:
I used a Sizzix die for the tag.
The snowflakes are a My Favorite Things Die-Namics.
The sweet little dog is a stamp and die combo
 from Simon Says Stamp called Cat and Dog Pawsome.
The Santa hat is a digi stamp that I sized to fit.
I used some red rhinestones and to finish it off,
 I used a white Signo uni-ball pen
to make the white dashes around the tag edge.
Thanks for looking.
'till next time,

I made a Christmas card today using only stamps!
The background is Doodlebug's sugar coated paper...I love the sparkle!
I even added more sparkle to the center snowflake.
Here's what I did inside:
A very easy card!
Here's the dies I used:
The Die-namics are made by My Favorite Things and the words by quickutz.
Now it's time to go watch the Browns!
