Reel Great Guys Set

Just thought I would share a card I made for a family friend who had a birthday a  month ago.  Sometimes it's also about just posting on your own blog to have a record of colors.  LOL!

I've used Maja's papers and just a few odds and ends I had in my stash.  This image is from Art Impressions called "Reel Great Guys" set so the sentiment is from there as well.  I can see me using this one again!  

Thanks for popping by!

Singing Penguins

Once again I'm back with another Christmas card using Pion's "Long Ago in Bethlehem" papers.  I love my new "Winter Wishes Lantern" die.  I cut some gold paper out and glued it to the back to make them look like shimmering lights. I also had some Scrapiniec holly leaves left from last year so I covered them with a gold ink from an ink pad I've had in my stash for years!

I made a couple poinsettia's using some cream Foamiran and the new Whimsy "Lily/Poinsettia die".  For the centers I added some heart stamens and also some poinsettia centers but I add some gold glitter to match my card.  I even sprayed some gold glitter overtop the flowers. 

Eeeeee heeeeee this image from Wild Rose Studio is called "Singing Penguins".  Awwww they are sooo cute!!  I've colored them up using my distress inks as I could hear them screaming to be used!  It's been so long I felt a little rusty so I colored more images up as well.  You'll be seeing those soon.  😀

I've been hoarding this twigged "golden star of David" for awhile (lol) but it suited this card perfectly!  I just had to use it!  I added a red flower using Rosy Owl's "heart flowers", added more cream heart stamens and added some gold Stickles to a few of the heart stamens.  I'm kinda all about matching stuff on my cards.  LOL!

And here's the other red flower at the top of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Long Ago In Bethlehem

Yup yup more Christmas for me to share!!  This time I'm using Pion's collection called "Long Ago In Bethlehem".  I think this made me actually learn how to spell "Bethlehem".  LOL!  I love the vintage feel of these papers and of course the colors!!  YUMMY!

I've used some flowers that are in the store but there are lots to choose from!  I've added a few rusty pieces, the little bell and star, and some of my favorite pomegranate apples.  They are soooooooo cute!!  Oh and of course I have used my new favorite embellishment "sisal" all over the card.  hee hee

I love these new Wycinanka (ok the spelling I'm still trying to learn) chipboard pieces.  Both from the "Lace Baubles" line and when I say both I mean the baubles AND the border.  Pretty huh?  I added some wax cord and popped on a seam binding bow.

I think I have a good start on my Christmas cards now but I'll really find out when the season actually rolls around.  LOL!  Have you started yet?

Tea For Two

I have been waiting patiently (not - 😀) for my new Polkadoodles to come in the mail and FINALLY!!  YIPPPEEEE!  These are soooooo cute!  For my first one I paired her up with some fun whimsical papers from LemonCraft called "Everyday Spring".   

The image is from LDRS called "Tea for Two" by Polkadoodles and I've colored her up with my Copics.  Awwwww - that's all I could think of when I was coloring her she is sooooooo CUTE!!

It's been awhile since I made flowers and I just received my Whimsy lily die so I HAD to try it!!  Here you also see the Whimsy peony die and Rosy Owl "Flower Dies 2".  I have also put some GORGEOUS green glitter stamens in the center and I have to say OH MY GAWD!  These stamens are STUNNING!  I've also filled a beautiful heart shaped wish bottle with some glitter.  So pretty especially in real life!

I've used quite a few dies but I have to mention that there is a HUGE sale on a lot of these dies in the store and if you see something that's not in stock, just email Tracy.  I made a few tassels (those dies are on sale too - hee hee) and popped the cute little teapot over top.  Oh my goodness there is quite a little selection of tea items including a spoon!  REALLY?  You have to see them!  LOL!  

A close up of the pretty Whimsy lily die that I've added the green glitter stamens to.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today as I enjoyed making it.  Creating the flowers is very relaxing and I managed to binge watch most of the first season of Game of Thrones so it was a complete win/win.  My new guilty pleasure.  LOL!  What about you?

Thanks for stopping by!
