I used an adhesive sheet to adhere the blue foil then die cut the polka dot tag layer from Reverse Confetti.  Stamped a few little snowflakes in some circles.  Die cut the trees, inked the edges and finished off with Green Wink of Stella.  Cut some glitter cardstock for the snow and inked the edges with a blue marker and added some icicle Stickles  Stamped the sentiment and die cut with a banner die.

Stamped the musical background from Gina K in Memento Soft Sand on ivory over the lower part of the card.  Stamped the sentiment by Inkadinkado in Colorbox Warm Red  across the top.  Stamped the tree with Memento Olive Grove then sponged Distress Ink around the edge.

Someone is getting sunglasses for Christmas!  Die cut the green polka dot tag and stamped a flourish with Memento Nautical ink.  Die cut the sunglasses twice, added glitter, then pieced them back together.  Stamped the little sentiment and layered onto a pink tag that was also glittered.  Added the satin ribbon and tied the little tag onto the ribbon with green baker's twine.

Thanks for taking a look!

Twelve Tags of Christmas Day 1

I always look forward to The Twelve Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist at Ellen Hutson's The Classroom!  Day 1 is a color challenge using red, teal, green and pink with inspiration from Laurel Beard and Sandy Allnock.

Lots of die cuts!  Tag and red diagonal stripes from Reverse Confetti.  Die cut the tree from teal and added the "snow" with a Sakura Souffle Pen.  Die cut the joy and snowflake punch from some foiled pink cardstock and tied on some green and white baker's twine,

Rustic Joy

I really like the inspiration photo at Curtain Call and knew I just had to play along in the challenge.



First I stamped the wood background from Concord & 9th in Memento Rich Cocoa on kraft, added a die cut star and then stamped the big JOY also from Concord & 9th with the Rich Cocoa.  Used the coordinating JOY die to cut the letters from some Gina K Turquoise Sea cardstock, then added some clear Wink of Stella to the letters and adhered over the stamped JOY.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Just Us Girls #370 - Color Week

Ina is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls for Color Week and she has chosen some very rich, beautiful colors!




We have the very talented Cecile Ribon with us again this week as our November Guest Designer!  Come on over to the JUGS blog to see what Cecile and the rest of the Design Team have created with these awesome colors.


Started this off with a purple polka dot card base.  Stamped the globe with Delicata Golden Glitz ink on some teal cardstock and die cut with a circle die.  Stamped the JOY and TO THE WORLD in purple ink even though it looks almost black in the photo and then added some Wink of Stella to the JOY.  Matted with some mirror gold cardstock and added the fishtail tag (it's the same teal as the globe but looks so much darker).

Come play along in our Color Challenge this week at Just Us Girls and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible for a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.
