Ringing The Bells


Greeting everyone, thank you for stopping by.  Today's' design is certainly a glittery amount of goodness.  For the dress, hat, bells and snowdrift I used white, gold and green glitter card stock.

This design made me think of the elks we saw recently. We were over at the Oregon coast several weeks ago near Seaside, Oregon there was this huge herd of Roosevelt Elk just standing near the Highway 101.  Well, the males like to have moss, tree branches or whatever hanging from their antlers to make them look larger for the ladies.   You know the old saying the bigger the antlers, the bigger the .... you get the idea.

Materials:
Memory Box Lady Dancing, Holiday Hats, Woodland Deer, Mini Holly Leaves & Holiday bells
Fiskars - Deckle scissors(snow drift)

Poinsettia Tree - Sea Port Village
Just got back from holiday in San Diego, CA  temperature was 89 degrees we stopped by Sea Port Village, where they made a display with stacks of potted Poinsettia plants into a tree.

Week 2 - Paperwhites     Not a lot of growth yet.

A Big Blue Frosty Greeting


Pouring rain here, at least it is warmer, lots of wind and power outages.  Gives me plenty of time to sit in my craft room and try to come up with designs.

I thought a slightly blue holiday design would be fun.  The background is embossed with a snowflake pattern and I added some snow to the branch.  The tree is dotted with Viva Decor pens, which I use on a lot of my cards,  I love the stuff.  I just have been going through some of my dies and embossing folders that don't get used much.

Materials:
Papertry Ink - In The Meadow Die
Cheery Lynn Designs - Frosty The Snowman
Poppy Stamps - Picket Fence & Pine Garland
Memory Box - Gingerbread Men & Woodland Branch
Martha Stewart Ribbon Bow punch
Viva Decor Gold & Red Paper Pens
Darice Snowflake embossing Folder

Have A Merry Christmas


Hello everyone, a big special thanks to my new followers.  Wow has it been cold here in the Northwest.  Right after October it was like a switch was thrown, it went from being nice to bitter cold.  The mornings have been 26 and the highs around 40.

Today's design was really quick and easy, I just die cut the oval frames, embossed the white card stock and added the cute Frosty, hillside, a few rhinestones and the words and I was done.

Up Up And Away


Greetings everyone, a big hello to my latest followers and thank you for stopping by my blog.  I still think Dee's Distinctively Small Winter Cottage die is one of the cutest house designs.  I used glitter card stock for the roof, windows, door and top of chimney.  Then I added Viva Decor dots on top of the windows for Christmas lights.  I also dotted the trees for a festive glow.  I tucked some presents, gingerbread men and a train in the snowbank which was created using my Fiskars deckle scissors.

Penguin Greeting


Its time again for the Penguins to come out and play.  I die cut them in black and then white card stock, to create the tummies I cut oval shapes.  I know you can not see it but I added a copper Viva Decor on the beaks.

I die cut the center circle using the Impression Obsession Circle Shaker Frame die and then added a deckle cut snow bank.  I used Glossy Accents and the Recollections Snow Glitter on the tree.  The raindrops are Viva Decor Glass Effects.  For the corners I used Cheery Lynn Designs Lace Corner Deco F die.

Waiting For My Folks


Welcome to my blog, I hope you enjoy today's design.  I know when I had pets they were always waiting for me as soon as they heard the car pull up.

I used Viva Decor pens on the stair case for the berries, and then again on the tree to create a variety of holiday ornaments. I tucked the cat at the top of the staircase and the dog waiting by the door.

Materials:
Poppy Stamps Leafy Garland, Curious Cat, Dachshund & Elegant Stair Frame
