Holiday Parade!

Popping in to share some of the holiday cards that I didn't get up on my blog before Christmas. 

This one was originally done for the THD (don't you miss the THD? I do!). It features Lawn Fawn, Memory Box, Copics and some SU! paper

My first time making a spinner card!  This LF bear and LF paper is just darling.  The Gina Marie scalloped edge is sweet too.  My fave bit is that fun paper pieced scarf!

How about a little Your Next Stamp in da house?!

Saw this set and HAD to get it, too many beer loving men in my life.  Also uses MFT and Gina Marie Dies. 

Hey sweet thing, loving your outfit, goes perfectly with that ugly sweater paper and those Crafter's Companion dies. 

This guy is just having a grand time!  I made it a slider card and coupled it with some Lawn Fawn paper and sentiment.  The other dies are Yvonne Creates and MFT. 

Next up is this sweet thing from The Greeting Farm.  You might remember her buddy who looks like he was from a Christmas Story?  While he was decked in blues and greens this one has the pinks and red.  Again, Gina Marie Scalloped dies (love these!) sentiment from N&T AND those Doodlebugs accents. 

Next on deck are these Crafter's Companion creations.  

Love these stamps from CC (and Shena), soooo fun to color!  Do you spy Gina Marie?  Lol.  More Yvonne Creates Trees too. :)

Don't you just love that cute little deer from Avery Elle?  It is paired perfectly with these dies (trees and birds) from Impression Obsession.  Throw in some GM, and SU! embossing folder and a little distress ink- wahlah!

Last, but by no means least is this elf from Sugar Pea Designs.  I used my Zigs to color him in and give it this soft effect. I can't remember who creates that die (no it isn't GM, lol) and a bit o twine.  

So, are you exhausted yet?  I am!  Time to get crackin' on next years creations!

Thanks for the visit!

Hey, Hey!  Did you think I was done spamming you with holiday cards?  NOPE! 

Here is a a card I made using the Chloe Poinsettia Wreath die which is super fun!  And it goes perfectly with the Crafter's Companion Circle Swing Die.  I cut right into the circle and then added some color and distressed it to give it this fun feel.  To accent the poinsettias after popping them up,  I put some of the shiny red luxury cardstock behind the circle.  I used the same to paper to cut the word Jolly which was from the Sarah Davies Cute Christmas Collection. The plaid paper is from Lawn Fawn and goes perfectly with this fun card. 

How funny is it that this second shot looks crooked?  It isn't, I guess I took it at a weird angle or something.

A Christmas Story?

After all the coffee hop fun I took a few days off.  It was so much fun but sheesh, I don't know how Amy and the gals do that 4X per year!  What an amazing crew eh!?
So picking up where I left off, wanted to share another fun card with you:

For some reason this sweet guy from the greeting farm reminds me of the little bundled up boy in the movie A Christmas Story.  Maybe it is that old fashioned looking jacket/outfit.  It is really cute!  So I colored this guy with my Copics and I just love the blue and green palette.  The background paper is from Doodlebug Designs, so bright and cheery.  I used the Lawn Fawn polaroid die cut and a LF greeting as well.  The snowflakes are from Pretty Pink Posh.  He is a darling kiddo don’t you think?!

Thank you so much for visiting me today, it makes my heart sing!

International Tea Day

Today is the last day of the Coffee Hop- sniffle!  But it has been OH SO MUCH FUN!  And for one last amazing send off on this final day we are celebrating International Tea Day.  Yay!  I have a fun card to share with you in celebration: 

Does this make you feel like you are looking out the window gazing at a wonderful winter scene? I hope so, because that is the idea.  I started with the evergreen bough from Impression Obsession.  I then cut the little red bird from a PTI die.  The window, cut into woodgrain paper is from MFT.  The snowy paper behind it is from Lawn Fawn.  Next comes the tea cup and accessories from Echo Park.  I cut the cup it all from Crafter's Companion Luxury Cardstock with the exception of the steam, which is cut from vellum.  Finally, the border die is from Gina Marie.

Head on over to the Coffee Lovers blog to see what other amazing creations the DT has.

Thanks for the visit!

Holiday Hugs!

Can you believe there are only two days left in the Coffee Hop?  I can't, it has really flown by.  BUt there has been so much fun and so much inspiration.  

Today I ave this card featuring one of my most favorite stamps from MFT.  He was fun to color as a Sasquatch this time around.  I paper pieced the scraf from the some fun DP.  The background DP is cut using Avery Elle and PTI dies.  Love the little felt trees picked up from my local craft store.  The sentiment is from WPlus9.  

Hope you are getting lots of inspiration!

National Cocoa Day

Who's ready for some Cocoa?! Visualize me raising my hand...  It's National Cocoa Day so we should ALLbe ready I think.  The next uestion is what is your preference, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, something else?  Marshmallows or not?  Me, I am a milk chocolate girl with marshmallows. 

Now if you are a mallow lover like me, then this is a good gift for you.

This little cutie was made by simply purchasing a small jar from my local craft store and filling with marshmallows.  The penguin is vinyl, which you could make with your die cutting machine.  I coupled it with some Starbucks Cocoa and finished it with a tag that I die cut form Lawn Fawn.  Hard to see but I also stamped some blue snowflakes and Happy Holiday's Sentiment (also LF) and tied it up using some fun red twine.

Do head on over to the Coffee Lover's blog to see what else is in store for today!
