So What

I bought this cd on Sunday. I'm loving it right now and it's pink.
And yesterday, I played with new dies from Spellbinders and made another Just Rite card.
This cute birdie stamp is from Hero Arts and it's from one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets this year. This card has quite a bit of layers. I used liquid pearls on the rim of the hat to make it look fluffy like cotton.
I made the turquoise scallop using my new Slice machine. It kind of looks like a big flower. The red pinking circle is a new Spellbinders die and the stamp is from Just Rite Stampers.
This deer is also in the same Christmas set as the birdie. I stamped the snowflakes with Encore silver ink and the red pinking circle is from Spellbinders.
And lastly, a red gemstone on Rudolph's nose. Thanks for stopping by and how was your Veteran's Day?

I gave in

I really didn't want to buy another snowman stamp, but... I did. Yup, it was too cute to resist.
Every year the folks at Hero Arts come up with the cutest stamps. Actually, I had a different card in mind when I used my Just Rite stamp for the circle border. I had such a hard time stamping this other image in the middle that I gave up and went for the snowman.
And the cap should of matched the scarf but, I was drinking Starbucks coffee while attempting to make this card and there was no way I could of drawn in black lines on the little ole cap with a shaky hand.
Don't forget to enter your name on the post below for the cute little stamp set.
Have a great day!!!

For the first time...

I voted today. Can you believe that I have never voted before and today was the first. I haven't been keeping up with all the local politicians so I actually had a hard time filling out my ballot. Then I went to Starbucks and they gave me a free cup of joe.
The rest of my afternoon was spent playing with some new product. First, the Slice machine. It took me awhile trying to figure out how to go through all the icons on the card and when I did figure it out, I had to laugh at myself. Duh...need to press the small arrows to go through all the icons. I did cut out different sized shapes but I'll have to make something with it another day.
Then I took out my Just Rite samples and made a card with one of the big wooden stampers. I love how all these stamps fit in the Spellbinders dies perfectly and you can cut the different shapes out after you stamp it. Here's a card that I made.
I embossed the background with the Christmas ornaments embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The stamp is from Just Rite and I cut it out with the Spellbinders classic circle. The red circle frame behind that is the Hello Kitty die frame. And santa is from the new Sizzix Sizzlit Christmas set. The red bling is Hero Arts.Notice how big the stamp is from Just Rite? There's more sayings in the set and I'll be making cards to show you. Then I used a new XL die from Sizzix and made a favor box to hold treats.
This is the new box with tab die. I embossed the front with a Cuttlebug snowflake folder. And punched out a snowflake and poured chunky white glitter on it to look like snow. The stamp is from Hero Arts.
The glitter looks better in this photo. I got the glitter from the store. I actually like it better. It's easier to clean up chunky glitter than the ultra fine type that I normally use on my projects. The side of the box has a pleat which I didn't take a photo of but if you want to buy this die, just ask for the box with tab.
Well, hope you all voted today and thanks for stopping by to visit. Leave me a comment and I'm going to give away this cute clear stamp set. I think it's supposed to be a ladybug. I'll draw a winner before the weekend.
