Merry and bright

I am finally starting to work on Christmas projects and today I opened a new Sizzix die that I recently bought from the store. There are a total of 10 bigz dies that come with a bonus textured impressions folder and this one is the stocking die. I made mine into a card by first folding the cardstock in half and placing the fold at the top of the stocking. I used the elephant from Dandelion Designs new cling set called "happy hello". The lollipop is from the "so sweet" set. I used glossy accents on the lollipop to give it a shine.
I'll be at the store tomorrow doing a make & take from 10-12 pm. We'll be using a bunch of these stamps.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

The best things in life are friends

Happy humpday! I thought I'd take a break from making Halloween projects and make an everyday card instead. I bought a bunch of new stamps by Lala Land Crafts from the store last weekend and here's one of the stamps I used on my card today. This one is called "big panda Marci". She's so cute with her Ugg boots.For this card I took out one of my older dies from Sizzix called A2 card and used the window pane movers & shapers die to cut out the window. I'm so glad I still have these dies.
I used a Studio Calico stamp by Hero Arts for the background called "alphabet pattern" and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Hope you're having a wonderful evening and thanks for stopping by!!!

Friend to friend Halloween

I picked up a bunch of new items from the store the other day and made a Halloween card using Dandelion Designs Ping from the "friend to friend" set. I wanted to make him look like he was in a costume so I colored him green with copic markers. He's so cute!The purple background is actually white cardstock that I cut out using Spellbinder's "wonky rectangles" nestablities and using Tim Holtz distress inks, I inked the background in dusty concord.
Then I embossed it with Tim Holtz's texture fades Halloween & backgrounds set.
The pumpkins and trick or treat bag is from Dandelion Designs Halloween set.
Here's a picture of the make & take Halloween candy treat holder that I did at J's 2 weeks ago. We used the monster stamp from Dandelion Designs "smile" set.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a great week!!!

Sizzix Fresh Vintage Blog Hop - Flower Layers #9

Hi and welcome to the Sizzix Fresh Vintage blog hop! We are on the 2nd week of the blog hop and for today's project, we were asked to use "flower layers #9" from Eileen Hull's Fresh Vintage collection. Since Halloween is coming up at the end of this month, I decided to make a card using the die.
I used Sizzix album, fanciful XL die for the background of my card. First I stamped "Happy Halloween" from The Stamps of Life clear set, and I used leftover die cut pieces in black and white from a class we did last year and embossed it with the spider textured impressions folder from the spider & spiderweb set.
I cut the label design with my Eclips machine using the basic shapes cartridge. While working on my project, I kept thinking about candy corn which is why I chose the 3 colors for my flower.
And because I love using glitter, I poured chunky white glitter over each flower piece. Here's a close up of the glittered flower.
