Happy Christmas

I combined two challenges to make my card - MFTWSC192 and Merry Monday #125.
MFTWSC193
The sweet image is from Penny Black Mimi's Christmas set.  The card base is MFT Smooth White CS, the mats are SU Basic Black and the DSP is from Echo Park's 'Tis The Season 6x6 pad.  The image is stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics and Promarkers, and then cut out with MFT Pierced Circle Dies.   I sponged around the edges with light blue ink and then added a little torn snow hill at the bottom.  The mat is cut with a Spellbinders Scallop Circle die.  The sentiment is from MFT Happy Christmas and then cut out with MFT Fishtail Flags Layers Die and Pierced Fishtail Flags for the black mat.  I put both pieces back in the dies and cut the opposite ends.  The red flag at top is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 15 dies.  I tied a button with Jute Twine and added it to the flag.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.
Happy Stamping,

Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Not a Card

It's Friday and time for another challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and we are to make a "non card project". The winner will get 7 digi images of their choice from Bugaboo Stamps.
I used the cute Deacon-Christmas Elf Presents image and printed him on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with Copics.   The sentiment is from MFT Christmas Ornaments set.  The DSP is from a DCWV Christmas Mat Stack.  The tag is made with SU Read Red CS and the Scallop Tag Punch.  I made it wider than the 2" slot and slid it up under the guide to punch the top and then rounded the corners.  I added some ribbon and a jute cord bow.

Now check out all the great creations by the Design Team members over at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  I hope you will join us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Seize The Birthday - Sweet Treats


Happy Thursday my friends.  It is time for another challenge over at Seize the Birthday and this week we have the "toppings" option of "Sweet Treats".
I stamped this sweet image PI-Hello Cupcake from My Favorite Things on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics.  I paper-pieced her dress and inked around the edges for some dimension.  The sentiment is from MFT's Sweet Birthday Wishes.  I cut it out with MFT's Pierced Fishtail Flags Die and ran it back through to cut the flag end on the other end.  It is mounted with foam tape.  The stripe DSP is from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 pad.  The pink dotted DSP is from Recollections Little Princess pad.  I added some enamel dots by My Mind's Eye.

Now check out all the "sweet" cards by my fellow teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Mojo Monday 361

This is my second post today.  Please scroll down for my Merry Monday card.

I finally got to play along with the Mojo Monday #361 sketch.  This is the first time in awhile I have played along.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:
I used Verve Plain Jane Birthday to You for the sentiment and Verve One Person (discontinued) for the flower (one of my favorite flowers that I use a lot).  The DSP is from Pebbles Front Porch 6x6 pad.  I stamped the flower on some of the DSP twice and cut out the smaller layer and mounted with foam dimensionals, and added a Recollections Enamel Dot.  I stamped the leaves separtely on white and inked them with a couple of different inks to get the shade I wanted.  I pierced the edges of the sentiment panel and added some SU Riding Hood Red ribbon (retired).  The mats are also Riding Hood Red CS.  The card base and sentiment panel are MFT Sweet Tooth CS.

Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Wishes for Merry Monday

The challenge at Merry Monday is to use presents/gifts on your Christmas card.
Here is my card:
I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #167 for my layout, but turned it sideways.
Deconstructed Sketch No. 167
ETA:  My card was an Honorable Mention at Merry Monday.

My card base is MFT Smooth White CS and the DSP is from Lawn Fawn's Peace, Joy, Love 6x6 pad.  I stamped the image from MFT's Presents for You on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics and Promarkers.  I paper-pieced the presents and mounted the single present from MFT's Sweet Birthday Wishes with foam tape.  I used EK Success Corner Rounder to round the corners, then added faux pen stitching on the image panel and the card base.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
