All Dressed Up for Christmas

Good morning!

I am back today to share a project for All Dressed Up Stamps.  This sweet image is called ‘All Dressed Up for Christmas‘.  Looks like she is putting the final touches on her Christmas tree…AND she even has her presents wrapped!

All Dressed Up for Christmas1

I had the idea to turn this into a shaker card so I separated my image in Photoshop leaving the tree as one image and the girl and her star as the second image.  The tree is on the inside of the shaker with all the pretty little bits.  She is attached on top of the shaker with double sided foam tape.

There’s no place like GNOME for the holiday’s!

Hello crafty peeps!

Oh my goodness!!  How cute is this little Gnome!!!!!!!  Such a fabulous image to pair with gorgeous flowers from I Am Roses.

My creation today started with this super adorable little gnome from StarJamLines’s Etsy shop.  This little cutie is a digital stamp found here.

Gnome

I printed this sweet image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following Copic markers.

Reds:  R89/39/37/35/32/46/27/24/BV29

Gnome2

I fussy cut out the gnome once he was colored and set him aside to create the shaker element.  I used a new die from the Greetery for the white background and then embossed each piece with an embossing folder from Darice.

Once the shaker was completed I adhered the Gnome with double sided tape.  The sentiment was created on my PC in Microsoft Word and the leaf dies are from LaLa Land Crafts.

Santa’s Train

HI All!

All aboard!!  ‘Santa’s Train‘ is part of the fabulous special release from Whimsy Stamp’s.  Oh my goodness…Christmas cuteness overload!!

My 3 year old Grandson LOVES trains and has claimed this as “mine”…lol

I stamped these adorable train sections on X-Press It Blending card and colored them with the following Copic Markers.

Santa's-Train

I created a Slimline card with the awesome Slimline Postage Die.  Because I wanted my card to have a winter scene background, I covered up the cutouts that the die creates with patterned paper.  I love how this little white ‘outdoor’ scene turned out.  It looks like the train is following along with the natural snowy hills of the countryside.  I added the sentiment from the Christmas Ellie-ments Clear Stamp Set.

CC Designs ~ Joy

Welcome everyone!

I have another project to share with you from CC Designs October new release.  This sweet little face all dressed up in her reindeer suit is just simply too cute to resist!!

This adorable stamp set is called ‘Christmas Cuties‘…and I actually colored them all!  I will use the rest of them for Christmas tags for my grandchildren.

Joy

I stamped this sweetie on X-Press It Blending and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~

Hair:  E57/55/53/30
Horns:  E42/41/40/W3
Costume:  E33/31/53/30

Joy2

I used the coordinating ‘Christmas Cuties Outline Dies‘ to cut out the little reindeer, and cut out the J and the Y with the ‘Olive You Alphabet & Number Dies‘.  The dies used behind her are from La-La Land Crafts.

The thin strip of red is just cardstock cut 1/8 inch wide and glued to the background.  I added foam tape behind the image and the letters for dimension…and of course a little red bling to the top to finish the card.

As always, there is an abundance of inspiration to be found in the store here.

Thank you so very much for stopping by!
