CC Designs November Release Sneak Peek #1

 
Preview Day #1 for the November CC Designs Release is Here!!!  I have to tell you, there are some super adorable stamps being released this month so prepare yourself!!!  Today, I have one of the cutest little guys to share with you.  He is from the Snowies Set and is one of 4 stamps that come in the set.  I just love how he's bundled up to his nose and that little birdie is the cutest!  For my card, I chose some winter papers with a hint of a "woodsy" feel.  Then I colored my image to match with Copic Markers.  I cut it out on my Scan N Cut 2.  I die cut several layers of my patterned paper and placed them on top of each other.  Then I created a little sentiment circle using the New Snowman Sentiments set which will also be released in November.  Then I popped my image on top using some foam tape for dimension.  A few rhinestone snowflakes and enamel dots top it all off.

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Lots of Layers


Hello!  Today, I'm hosting the Saturday Challenge at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!  This week's theme is Lots of Layers!  As you probably know, I love using layers on my cards so I thought I would challenge all of you to do the same!  You can find all the details on the Kraftin Kimmie Blog HERE.

For my card, I decided to use the adorable Snowball Fairy.  This is a rubber stamp which means it is retired, but there are still a few left in the shop.  So, if you want her... be sure to snatch her up soon!  I chose some soft winter papers with glitter accents and colored her up to match.  Then I die cut her using the Gina Marie X-Stitched Rectangle Die.  I layered several of the patterned papers in the background added some ruched ribbon and popped my image on top with some foam tape.  Then I die cut a ton of glitter snowflakes and sprinkled them all over the card.  Some velvet snow balls top it off.

CC Designs - Carolers

Hello!  Today, I'm here sharing a fun little holiday card using the NEW CC Designs Carolers Stamp!  I just love these two little cuties and that little dog singing his heart out in the corner is just adorable!!!  For my card, I chose some holiday patterned paper that matched the theme of the stamp (musical notes).  Then I colored my image to match using Copic Markers.  Next, I die cut my image into a square and layered it on top of a red scallop.  I added a little tree die cut, some enamel dots and button flag to the corner.  The sentiment is from the NEW CC Designs Holly Jolly Sentiments set

CC Designs Cinnamon With Reindeer

Hello!  Today, I'm here sharing a fun little Christmas card featuring the NEW Cinnamon with Reindeer stamp from CC Designs.  Isn't she just the cutest thing ever!!  I love how sweet her little smile is and that reindeer is just so adorable. 

For my card, I first chose some fun and bright patterned holiday paper and colored my image to match with Copic Markers.  Then I cut it out using my Scan N Cut 2.  Next, I layered some of the patterned papers in the background and diecut a strip of polkadot paper.  I added some stitched scallop borders on each side and topped it off with some red stitched ribbon and a cute little bow.  Then, I cut a tag using the NEW CC Designs Holiday Tag Die.  I cut the center square and stamped it with the CC Designs Holiday Backgrounds stamp to create a cute pink stripe.  I mounted that on my tag, and added my sentiment to the center which I die cut into a circle.  Finally, I popped my image on top with some foam tape to add dimension.  There you have it, one cute little holiday card.

It's Sneak Peek Day #5 and release Day!!!  ALL of the new stamp sets you've been seeing all week will be releasing THIS AFTERNOON after the LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY! Today, I'm sharing a fabulous stamp set by Annie Rodrigue!  It's called COCOA COZY.  Isn't it adorable!!  The set comes with the fabulous main image plus four coordinating sentiments!

 
For my card, I decided to warm pallet.  I started with some patterned paper that reminded me of the mountains and winter sweaters.  Then, I colored my image to match and die cut it into a square. Next, I layered my patterned papers in the background and mounted my image on top of them.  I created a fun little hot cocoa embellishment using some dies from My Favorite Things.  A little twill ribbon on the side tops it all off.

Kraftin Kimmie October Sneak Peek #3

Hello, hello!  It's Day #3 of the October Kraftin Kimmie Sneak Peeks and we're sharing an adorable new set from artist Cheryl Grant! It features two of our sweet kiddos, Lucas and Lexi....plus their furry little friends! The set is called COLD NOSES and features two main images PLUS five coordinating sentiments!

 
For my card, I decided to keep things clean and simple.  I found some adorable sled paper and thought it matched perfectly so I colored my image to match, stamped a fun little sentiment in the corner and mounted it on some grey cardstock.  I used two strips of pattered paper behind the image and topped it off with a banner punch and a snowflake button.

Kraftin Kimmie October Sneak Peek Day #2

 
 
 
It's Day TWO of the October Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!...
Did you LOVE yesterday's nativity set called Christmas Blessings? Well today we are back with a coordinating set called
CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS SENTIMENTS!
This gorgeous set is filled with spiritual sentiments in gorgeous fonts and can be used on their own as the focal point of your creations or in combination with any image! The set contains EIGHT stunning sentiments!
 
 
For my card, I chose some pretty blue nativity paper and colored my image to match.  I decided to pair the little Shepherd from yesterday's set with the sentiment since they coordinate so perfectly.  I stamped the sentiment in dark navy to match my papers and die cut into a circle.  Then I colored my image to match with Copic Markers.  I added some punched tags, rhinestones, and swirly photo corners to finish it off.
