25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Hello there!  Happy Turkey Day to my American friends! :)  Today, I am thrilled to be joining in the fun with the 25 Days of Christmas Tags!  Tracy was kind enough to ask the Lawnscaping girls to participate, and I was so excited to pull out my new Snow Day stamp set to make a tag! I used the Stitched Journaling Card as the base for my tag, and the tree is from the Critters in the Forest stamp set.  I wanted the bright pops of color to be the stand out on this tag, so I chose to paper piece the tree from very light gray patterned paper.  To attach the tag to the little gift bag, I used a tiny clothespin, dressed up with some washi tape to coordinate :)

Merry and Bright Tag

Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop

Oh my goodness, I am losing all track of time here!  I completely forgot that today is the 25th and din't have my PTI Blog Hop post scheduled!  Oops.

The theme for today's hop is SNOW!  I absolutely love snow, though I don't see any now that I live in Florida.  It's one of the things I miss most about my home in Pennsylvania. 

For my card today, I used one of my favorite holiday sets, Tremendous Treats Christmas.  I made a shaker card (my first ever) using the Fabulous Frames dies, and some fun faux snow that I got at the Dollar Tree.  A pretty good size bag is only $1, and I grabbed it a soon as I saw it, with a shaker card in mind.  I added a few diecut snowflakes from the Winter Penguin die set, and the striped card base was created using Watercolor Wonder.

That's all for now... off to have (another) cup of coffee, and hop! :)

Lawnscaping Challenge #94 - Numbers!

Hello there!  It's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!!  This week, our challenge is to include numbers somehow in your project!  It can be any theme, as long as you use number stamps or dies somewhere!!  

We are sponsored this week by the super fabulous Lawn Fawn!

For my project today, I used the Tag You It dies and the Winter Gifts stamp set to create a tag for my sister's 23rd birthday gift.  I started out by stamping the tag outline on white card stock and then masked off the edges and stamped "23" repeatedly using Milo's ABCs to create a patterned paper.  Before removing the masked edges, I used distress inks to create an ombre effect on the tag to coordinate with the gift wrap.  I then stamped, colored and cut out the cute little hippo, bird, and balloon from Year Four and stamped a sentiment on a banner diecut.  Everything was popped up using foam tape and tied to the package with Orchid Lawn Trimmings!  Love that color!!

Lawn Fawn Holiday Week - Day 3

Hello there and welcome back to Day 3 of the Lawn Fawn Holiday Week!  I hope you have been enjoying all of the adorable projects that are being shared on the Lawn Fawn blog!  

Today, I have a card to share using the Sweet Christmas stamp set.  This little gingerbread house is so much fun to play with!  With all of the little detail stamps, you can create gingerbread houses with lots or little decoration. For my card, I just added a few windows to my  house, and popped the windows and roof up on foam tape for a little added dimension.   I used the Snow Day 6x6 paper pad for my mix of patterned papers.

Lawn Fawn Holiday Week - Day 1

Hello there!! Happy Monday! Today is the first day of Lawn Fawn's Holiday Week and I am thrilled to be participating!

For my card today, I pulled out some of my favorite Lawn Fawn products, including the first stamp set that I purchased from Lawn Fawn, Making Frosty Friends.  Even still, it is one of my most used stamp sets during the holiday season.

Let It Snow

I love white on white for winter themed cards.  I diecut the largest stitched rectangle and a stitched hillside from white cardstock.  I used Tumbled Glass distress ink to lightly ink the edges of the panel, and then used the same ink to stamp the snowflakes on the background.  I stamped the smaller snowman from Making Frosty Friends in grey ink and then used light blue copic markers to lightly shade him.  I used Louie's ABCs dies to diecut the sentiment, and then adhere the letters and the hillside the card front.  The snowman is popped up with foam tape, and I finished things off with some Silver Sparkle lawn trimmings.

There's tons more inspiration today and all week long on the Lawn Fawn blog!  Be sure to stop back here on Wednesday... I have another card to share with you!! :)
