A MOOSE IS A MOOSE IS A MOOSE

What better way to end the week than with a moose!  A very merry moose that is!

We’re no strangers to moose up here in northeastern BC and that is why I purchased the Merry Moose Bundle(153015).  I love the images in this set and will have a ton of fun creating with it.

I started off with this great layout from Freshly Made Sketches and went from there.

I played around with those circles for a bit and then and idea hit!  I used a die from the Layering Circles dies and lightly traced it out with a pencil.  Then I grabbed the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and added the dots.  When it was done, a white eraser was used to get rid of the pencil marks.

Here’s the list of products used and make sure to check out the Merry Moose Bundle, it is fun, fun, fun!

HAVE A GOLDEN CHRISTMAS

I’m wishing you all a golden Christmas and here’s the card to send those greetings!

This is one last Christmas card for 2018 which allowed me to play along with the What Will You Stamp challenge as well as the SUO Challenge.

Peaceful Poinsettia is the stamp set of choice for WWYS and we can choose our own design for the SUO Challenge so I kept it simple with a little textured embossing and some heat embossing with our Gold Emboss Powder.

Here’s the list of products used.

IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR GIFT TAGS READY!

Have you finished with your Christmas gift shopping yet?  Do you have a good supply of Christmas Gift tags?  Maybe these will give you a little inspiration.

I’m always short on tags so put these together to add to my growing gift tag collection.  The colour scheme comes from The Paper Players challenge to use Real Red, Shaded Spruce and a colour of my choice(Whisper White).

The base for the tags was cut out of Real Red and Shaded Spruce with the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch.  I used the punch again to cut out the matching designer paper and went from there.  I really like the Sincerely Santa stamp set (WM) (CM) for it’s great greetings that are perfect for tags!

Have you checked out the list for the Year-End Closeout going on now?  Some of these items will go very quickly so make sure that you check them out in my Online Store.

It took a few things to create these gift tags – check out this list below.

TIME FOR A CLEAN CHRISTMAS CARD

Sometimes clean is the way to go – so that’s what I did with some Thick Whisper White cardstock and scraps of the Festive Farmhouse designer paper!

That lovely greeting is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set and I used the matching dies so I could add that tiny bauble!

The layout for this card came from the new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge – simple and clean!

LOVELY BAUBLES TO DECK YOUR HALLS

Welcome to you and thanks so much for stopping by on this wintery Monday!  Today’s card is a study in white and gold to show off the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

Who wouldn’t want those beautiful baubles decking their halls?!

I started out with the great simple sketch from the Fab Friday challenge and went from there.

The Stamparatus is a fabulous tool to help keep the greeting and image exactly where you want them.  A little wipe with the embossing buddy before stamping helps to keep the embossing powder in the right place!

I also used our Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere those thin stripes of Gold Foil.  It’s tough stuff and dries clear!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

SINCERELY SANTA GOODIE BOX

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?  I’m a little late this year but have been busy making goodie boxes for small treats!

This one was created using our Lustrous White mini gable boxes but with a different technique.  I used the Sponge Brayer to add colour to the box itself.  This is Cherry Cobbler ink and I choose to leave it a lighter tone so the designer paper would stand out!  Here’s another angle.

TIP:  To keep the colour only on the outside of the box, I slipped a piece of printer paper inside the unopened box before using the brayer to add colour.

Now, i just need to create a few more to hold those special treats!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

BAUBLES AND SNOWFLAKES

Today’s card is a combination of baubles and snowflakes!  What do you do with leftover pieces?   Well, you create a new card of course!

I had been playing around with the Thinlits dies from the Beautiful Baubles bundle and the Snowfall Thinlits dies and left a few sitting on my table.  So…. I combined them for this card.  It turned out to be a little “busier” than my usual style but it’s cute!

Note:  The Snowfall Thinlits Dies are only available today and until 11:20PM tomorrow, so make sure that you visit my Online Store to get them before they’re gone for good!

THREE LOVELY TREES

The Snowflake Showcase products are soon going away on Friday, November 30, 2018!   So I took this opportunity to create just one more card to show off these three lovely trees with the Snow is Glistening photopolymer stamp set!

Don’t they look great on the background of Soft Sea Foam?  I stamped the tree 3 times, twice with Versamark and once with the Soft Sea Foam ink and then did a little heat embossing.  White emboss powder for the Soft Sea Foam trees and Clear emboss powder for the soft sea foam tree.  So lovely!

I arranged those trees according to The Paper Players sketch

and added some texture to the card front with the Softly Falling  embossing folder.

If you haven’t yet, make sure to get your favourites from the Snowflake Showcase items.

Here’s the full list of products that I used for these three lovely trees!
