For my first card, I used JJ's Fill in the blank holiday stamp and die set.  I stamped and embossed the ampersand on red card stock and die cut it out with small circled Pinked die.

I used large Pinked circle die on the second and the third cards.  And I used quite a lot patterned paper

 The last is a quick and simple card using Nina's Simply tag: holiday and some more patterned paper.

Poppy Stamp holiday card

Hi, I am sharing a card on Poppy Stamp Blog today using newly released Deer Silhouette stamp and  Mountain top tree stamp. I decided to stamp the images in black for a good contrast.  I used my glue pen and adhered glitters to create the snow for the scene.  The red card base and the twine added the bright color and festive feel. Hope you will like it.

The card is entered into Simon Says  Bling it on challenge.

Avery Elle Thinking of you card

I am sharing a card I made with Avery Elle newly release Thanks a bunch stamp set and pinked die cut.  I stamped the bouquet on sticky backed canvas and cut it out with largest pinked die. The flowers were stamped in Fresh ink Fucshia,  the center of the flowers in Delicata Golden Glitz ink, and leaves in Fresh ink Provincial grey. The patterned paper is from Studio Calico, the soft color and the beautiful scripted background matches the stamped image very well.

Have a great day. Stop by Avery Elle blog for more inspiration.

Avery Elle December/January Release Blog Hop

It is time for fun and inspiration with Avery Elle blog hop. You are probably still full on holiday mood and holiday craft. We have some new stamps and dies for next paper crafters' favorite occasion.  Joining us this month is Kristen Foreman.

I have a new fav die - word Love from this release.  And I am so happy to show a couple of my cards made with the die and Simply Said Love stamp set.

I stamped the borders from Air Mail set and Celebrate set, "just a note" image from Aim Mail set and the little heart from Aim High set (can you spy it?). After I decided where I want the die cut go.  I stamped "forever" from Simply Said Love set. Word Love die cut was adhered with dimensional adhesive. A little white hemp twine adds some texture.  

For my second card, I used the die cut as a mask and misted with Tsukineko Fireworks in Angel pink. I also flickered some ink on the card panel before the mask was removed. Sentiment was stamped partially over the negative of misted word.  I embellished the card with some Studio Calico wood veneer, My Minds Eye enamel dot and a stripe of card stock.

Here is the complete list of the blog hop.

Poppy Stamp Holiday Tag Hop

I am joining the fun for some more holiday fun with Poppy Stamps.  I made a trio of die cut holiday tags.  I used the negative die as the top layer and a piece of red card stock as the bottom layers.  I like to have plenty space to write on a tag. So with two layers, not only to add the festive colors, the second layer can be used to write the message.

Here are each of the three tag.
Here is the complete list of the hop,

Avery Elle Fill in the Blank Holiday Gift Set

Today I am sharing a gift set made with Avery Elle, Cheers die, Holiday Fill in the blank dies and the stamp set. The wine tag was cut with Cheers die and embellished with Fill in the blank words die and Holiday Fill in the blank die.

Those wine charms are easy and quick to make and yet festive.  I die cut the circles from felt, and then cut the Holiday Fill in the blank in the middle of the circles. Then I used scissors and cut one opening, so it can fit on the wine glass.

The card was made with the leftover dies.  I was playing around and one of my kids said "it's a Christmas tree".  I also added a few die cuts from Simply Tag Christmas set.

Have a great day. Stop by Avery Elle blog for more inspiration.

Moxie Fab Thanks!

Cath, Trend editor for Paper Crafts Magazine is leaving Paper Crafts Magazine.  Besides being shocked, I  really can not image the paper crafts community without Cath.  Keren Baker has an great idea of a blog hop to thank Cath for what she did for the years. You should come from Lenny's blog.

Moxie Fab World is one of the first blogs I found when I started my paper crafting journey. Cath has such a wonderful talent to recognize good design and trends.  She always encourages, inspires, and recognizes how special each one of the crafters are.  There were so many occasions that I was not sure about my design and Cath left sweet and heart warming notes of encouragement.  Cath is the Moxie Fab World. 

Thank you, Cath, for all the inspiration and encouragement you've shown us all over the years. MFW has played a huge part in my growth and learning as a papercrafter and I'll be forever grateful for that. I wish you all the best in your new life adventures and thanks again for all you've done!

Your next stop is Berenice.
