Mousey Xmas!

Hello fellow crafters, today I've finally gotten a chance to play with one of the bugaboo stamps I have.  Since using this I've decided to see if bugaboo had any challenges, may as well put him to good use!  It was my first time visiting the bugaboo blog and much to my delight they do have challenges, as a matter of fact a couple of them! I always have a hard time figuring out layers and what works best so I pick the sketch challenge just to make my life easier.



Materials used:

Bugaboo Stamps - mouse ornaments
C.C. Designs - Snarky Christmas (sentiments)
Lawn Fawn - Frosties (snowflakes)
MFT - Santa's Elves (bells)
Snow Marker
Gelly roll - red, gold, green
Xmas ribbon
Stampendous - white, red embossing powder


I used my snow marker to add some fluff to his hat and give him a little beard.

Copics used:

G29, G19, YG06, R24, R29, R20, R22, R00, Y28, Y26, Y11, C5, E70, E27, E37, E35,E33, E30


I decided to use this little snarky sentiment on the inside since he looks a little tangled in his ornaments.

Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Holidays

Hello crafty peeps, today starts a new challenge over at Star Stampz "winter holidays". I'm using Christmas star for this challenge. I wanted to make a card that had some type of peek a boo window to hold a gift card in as a surprise, but be a card as well to write something in. So I used this tutorial from splitcoast stampers "surprise pop up card" to do this in. I also used a gift card holder cut from the silhouette store that I had as a template for the cuts made to hold the gift card, and had my cameo cut it into my card base.

Materials used:

Star Stampz - Christmas Star
Clearly Besotted - Brushed Greetings
Simon Says Stamps - So Very Merry
Pretty Pink Posh - Scallop frames
Wink of stella - clear
Snow marker
Nuvo crystal drops - bright gold
Gelly roll - Gold



Copics used:

Tree - G29, G19, GO5, E29, E25
Girl -  E00, E11, E04, R20, R29, R24, C5, YG06, G05, E25, E33, Y38, Y35, Y11
Sky - B00, B000, B0000


 

I didn't want to leave the slider element of the card blank when its pulled out, so stamped it with Clearly Besotted brushed greetings and emblossed it with wow! gold pearl. I also cut the bottom of my image because it didn't want to do a score line to help it bend up. I just thought a cut like would look cleaner.  I could've made my image smaller to fit over the top of the window but I  really wanted it to fill in the card more.



Inside I used The SSS so very merry stamp "Noel" and embossed it with a yellow green from stampendous. I'm not sure of the exact color because it came in a set and has no color names on it. I then colored it with glazed gelly roll pens, hoping to give it a stained glass look but it just didn't turn out that way.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my project and join us over at Star Stampz for this winter holiday challenge!

12 days of Christmas tags

Hello fellow crafters, it's been a busy week!  I seriously don't know how the professionals make putting together something look so easy and fast.  Anyway I'm getting ahead of myself, let me explain.  I had decided to make two sets of 10 Christmas tags to put on my etsy shop. I had started making them (my simplest tag still taking me around 3 hours to make!), when I decided I wanted to name this 12 days of Christmas tags, adding more to my work load! I know this took me a week to do I'm thinking even a little longer, but I can no longer remember when I started!lol Now on to the tags!


Materials used:
C.C. Designs - Nerdy snowman, Dress up snowman
My Favorite Things - Santa's elves, Beast Friends, Tag builder BP 5
Mama Elephant - Reindeer games
Purple Onion Designs (Stacey Yacula) - Emmett & Emerson (gnomes), Elm (puppy), Snowball (bunny singing)
Clearly Besotted - Brushed greetings, Best Christmas
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Circle, tiny tag sayings, gold sparkle hemp cord
embossing powder
Ranger - Enamel accents
Stickles
Sequins
Copics


I wanted to make some interactive tags in the bunch so did a couple of shaker tags.  No coloring was involved in these two I used the image from the Doodlebug Design Inc. 6 x 6 paper pad, polar pals.


In order to make these two interactive I stuck action wobblers to the back of the images to make them shake!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed my tags!
