BLOG CANDY! I’ve Gone Over 10,000 hits! Yeah!

Well, I’ve had 10,000 hits on my blog since March of this year, so its time for some blog candy. You have until Friday the 14th to leave a comment on my blog. I will use a random generator to pick the winner. Good luck! I have a Pacific Point Classic Stamp Pad, Bitty Basics (hostess set) stamp set and I will include some Sizzix die cuts also.

November Stamp-a-Stack

Here are the first 3 cards we did this month for my Holiday Stamp-a-Stack. First card was cased from Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts. I just changed the main stamp to Big on Christmas as I didn’t have the one she used. Wish I did. Dawn used Holiday Lineup. Just couldn’t justify another Christmas stamp set. The second one uses Deer Friends (love that hostess set) and Best Yet (another hostess set), Ski Slope DSP and Baja Breeze Striped Grosgrain ribbon. I added a small Felt Flurrie, which is in the Holiday mini catalog. I totally cased this card, but can’t remember who. I love how the snowman is attached to the inside of the card and you can see it through the front by punching a 1 /3/8″ circle. And the last one is using Snow Swirled again and Sincere Salutations stamp sets. I embossed the snowflakes using Versamark and white embossing powder, then used a dauber and inked around each snowflake with Baja Breeze. I added some Dazzling Diamonds, using the 2-way glue pen, added Baja Breeze Striped Grosgrain ribbon and stamped the greeting. 

If felt like I had a snowman, Baja Breeze, white card theme going, but it wasn’t intentional. I will post the last 2 cards tomorrow. So stay tuned……..

Snowman Card Using the Top Note Die

Isn’t this cute? I saw one similar on someone’s blog, and of course I can’t remember who. I changed the way she did the hat and the flower. I cut a piece of black & whisper white using the Sizzix Top Note. Cut off half of the black piece at the points in the middle, added a piece of black c/s, 4 1/8″ x 1″ to make the rim. The flower is from the Birds & Blooms die. Those are cut in Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss for the inside of the flower and the leaves. The eyes are made using the 1″circle punch in whisper white, sponged with Going Grey and the center of the eyes are 3/4″ circle punches in black. The nose is Pumpkin Pie cut with the large star. I just cut one of the points off. I then sponged around the Whisper White with Going Grey and added it to a basic card in Whisper White. The sentiment is from, Best Yet and stamped with white craft ink.
