Winter Skies

I love this sweet set from Lawn Fawn called Winter Skies. What I love most about Lawn Fawn stamps is that it is hard to not make a cute card with them! Great mix and match sentiments also.
Background done with Tim Holtz distress oxide inks of Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Mowed Lawn, and Crushed Olive.

Pumpkin Spice

Check out this warm and wonderful new set called Pumpkin Spice from The Project Bin! I love fall and the scent and flavor of pumpkin spice, it always seems so comforting and homey to me. The sentiments in this one are unique and lots of fun!
I used some older Close To My Heart designer papers that I had been saving with some Tim Holtz Wildflowers die cuts. This card uses the Mojo Monday sketch #521.

Present Shaker

For the Jingle Belles Tag Challenge this week. I can't get enough tags, I make and send them in batches to my sisters since they have a lot of grandchildren. This elf is from Art Impressions and the present is cut out and attached to an action wobble so it shakes and jiggles. I'm sure we are all guilty of shaking a present or two! These wobbles are so much fun and an easy way to add a little something extra to a project. I bought a big bag of them on ebay a while back and really love them. See second picture for wobble works.

Hello Beautiful

Decided to make a card with the various items on my desk today.
A brushos panel, a daisy stencil that I used copper Nuvo embellishment mousse on, some rhinestones and sequins, and a butterfly set that I got in London (maker unknown). The card base was from my drawer of pre-folded or partially decorated fronts, this one had some gold embossing on the edges.

You Are Not Alone

Love these little aliens peeping up over the dashboard! The set is called Milky Way from the Project Bin. I used some designer paper from Echo Park and accented the skies with glow in the dark Nuvo enamel drops. This little flying saucer is super easy to cut out with the coordinating die.

Turtle Travel and a Snowman

Oh, this image brings such joy, I love the sweet little smile. The set is called Love Your Shellfie and also has matching dies available. Check out The Project Bin's blog for more really cute cards made with this.
This was a fairly simple card that used a combination embossing/die cut folder (Sizzix) on white card stock. I stamped the turtle on the inside of the card and embellished with some pink sequins.

This darling set is called Merriest Christmas and the snowman and sentiments will warm your heart. A little something for everyone here. I used a designer paper for the background sky, some stitched white hill dies (Lawn Fawn), and the star (from Milky Way set) in silver. An easy card to create with the help of the coordinating dies.
