Winnie & Walter Christmas Cards...

Hello!  Just a short post today as life is super busy with the kids being off school, and holiday goodness, and Christmas card orders to fill.  (side note please don't forget to enter my thankful giveaway only two days left!!!)  I created these cards the other night based on the latest Winnie & Walter Play Challenge #4:

I've been wanted to play along for a while, and I'm so happy I was able to sneak these in...


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Winnie & Walter The Big the Bold and the Merry
Die: SweetStamps
Washi Tape: Teresa Collins
Ink: Papertrey Ink
Distress Stains
Stickles in silver
Rhinestones: Recollections
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh
Perfect Pearls Mist by Ranger

I was so excited when I finally got my hands on this Winnie & Walter Set, it is gorgeous and has sooooo many great uses!!!  This is a def. must have during the holidays!  To create this card I started by running two different distress stains over water color paper, I then flicked some perfect pearls mist onto it and let dry.  Next I diecut the deer, adhered the washi strip, stamped the sentiment, adhered the deer and embellished two different ways.  My husband likes the one with the silver stickles, I like the one with the rhinestones and sequins, so I will be splitting this order and making half with stickles and half with sequins hehehe!

Hope you have enjoyed and thank you so much for taking the time to visit me!

Happy Crafting!

Sparkling with The Alley Way Stamps

Hello!  I hope your weekend is going well, and that you are getting at least some time to breathe.  I'm just popping in on this beautiful Sunday morning to share a fun, bright and sparkly card that you can also find on The Alley Ways Stamp Blog...

This card was a lot of fun to create!  I started by stamping these gorgeous large snowflakes ( from the Winter's Butterfly Stamp Set ) with My Favorite Things Hybrid black ink.  I then went through and colored randomly with Distress markers before going back over with water and a brush.  LOVE the results!  I then cut one corner of the panel off before adding lots of Stickles and setting to dry.  I then stamped my sentiments (also from the Winter's Butterfly Stamp Set that is free this month with any $40 purchase!) at an angle and layered it all together. yay!!!

I am linking this up with the following challenges:

Merry & Bright Be Inspired Challenge

Happy Friday!!!  This is my second post of the day, so make sure you scroll down to see an owl turkey... oh you read that right, owl turkey 'nough said hehehehe!

Now onto this post!  It's time to share some new inspiration for the Be Inspired Challenge, always hosted by the amazing Alley Way Stamps, woot woot!!!  Remember you are playing for a chance to win stamps and be a Guest Designer, so make sure you link up with us!  Don't have any Alley Way Stamp Sets?  That's ok, Alison offers freebies for everyone to have an equal chance!

Check out what I've created this time...

For this card I started by stamping my "box border" by using the Tag a Longs Stamp Set and coloring them in with various copics.  I then stamped the sleigh and little penguin guy from the Jolly Holiday Stamp Set and colored them in too.  Next the trees were stamped on separate cardstock, colored and fussy cut out before adhering to the card.  Last came the sentiment from the All Wrapped up set and some snowflakes!

Have you ever seen an Owl Turkey?

I have!!!  And you are about to see one too! hehehehe!  This adorable little image is from one of the newer SweetStamps.com Stamp Sets Called Fall Owls, and it has some pretty hilarious little guys getting ready to spread Thanksgiving cheer...

And when I saw that super cute little guy at the bottom there I was like... " An Owl Turkey!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!"  and so he is shinning brightly on this little card that I also happen to be sharing on the SweetStamps.com Blog as well!

Full details on how this card came together can be found on their blog, but no fancy shading just good ol' coloring and fussy cutting was all this little guy needed! :)
