It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Everytime I hear this song, it makes me happy. I decided to stay home on Friday and play with my new crafty toys. That also makes me happy. This first box is the new Sizzix carry all box that just landed at the store last week. This one is pretty big too! I used my new gigantic MS punch called flower bed. Uh, I kind of messed up on centering it on the box. But, you get the idea right. I used one of Jean's older Christmas stamp (bird) for the decoration and embossed a Hero Arts word stamp.
This card came together because of all the extra HK embossed images I had lying around my table. That's another new gigantic MS punch. I love how it punches out the thank you with the letters linked together. So easy peasy. I'll probably use this for all my Christmas thank you's. I don't think you can see it but the red circle is embossed with the candy cane folder.This is an easy gift tag that I made. The snowflake is one of the embossing folders from Sizzix. I just stuck a blue gemstone in the center of the snowflake. This can be made in a couple minutes.
This last gift tag came about because I had a leftover piece of the flower bed punch border from the Sizzix carry all box and I couldn't throw it away. Stamp is another Hero Arts word stamp from one of last years clear set.
Well, hope you're enjoying the holidays and thanks for always stopping by! I really appreciate all the comments you leave. Have a wonderful Monday!

A quick one

I was going through my stacks of dies over the weekend and came across last years Sizzix gingerbread man die. He's a hot one. I was just going to make a card with him but decided to use this large tag pocket die cut from the Ellison Prestige machine. So easy to make. You can stick some candy canes in it like I did or even a packaged stamp to give as a gift to someone.
Well, thanks for stopping by today!!! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends and enjoy the feast!!!

Season's greetings

Another week has gone by and finally able to post again. Yesterday I played with some new CC Design stamps that the store just got in. I have so much to learn on coloring with copic markers. I really enjoy making these half cards. I embossed the background of this card using the new Cuttlebug folder called candy cane stripes.
The bench is a separate stamp from CC Designs. Perfect for the sitting down character stamps that they have in the line. The snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch that I bought last year and I haven't seen it around this year.
Well, I'm off to City Mill to look for a screw. Hope they have it so I can fix a machine for one of the customers.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're enjoying your day!!!

Hello friend...

Been away a lit bit longer than usual. I haven't been in a real creating mood lately and just been busy working. But last night, I sat down to play with some new craft toys that I got yesterday and finally made something. The C.C. Designs stamp on this card was given to me from Barbie. Thanks so much Barbie, I love it! So sweet of you!I am a real novice at coloring with copic markers. I must of dumped so many images while attempting to color in the lines. Lol! I wanted to use this new scallop border punch that I got from the store. The background stamp is a Hero Arts stamp called friend definition and the word is from the clear occasions set.
Here is one of the images I almost dumped because I went out of the lines. I decided to use it on this new XL die that was just released called bag with handles. I used the MS icicle border punch to make the grass and it worked. Here's a side view of the bag so you can see how big this bag is. Lots of goodies will fit in this one.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you're having a great week and tomorrow is a holiday but I still have to work.
