Cookie Cutter Christmas | #WWYS93

December is here!  and so is Cookie Cutter Christmas this week What Will You Stamp 


Time for treat bags for friends, colleagues and school teachers and classmates - my project this week combines my favourite stamp from Cookie Cutter Christmas with the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies to make this cute Reindeer tag for a gift.



The tag flips open to be able to write your special message to the recipient too




You can colour your images to give more depth, or can leave like I have today to for a quick stamp and punch for your festive image, and remember Cookie Cutter Christmas isn't just for Christmas, the teddy bear is perfect for celebrating when a baby arrives.

Merry Mice Trio - 3 times the fun!

I've had 3 times the fun creating this card set - masking is such a wonderful technique to use, and it means that you can mix and match your designs.


These 3 little critters are from the Merry Mice stamp set, in the set they are a happy little trio all on one stamp:


I used sticky notes to mask images so that I could stamp the mice individually, then I die cut with the new Stitched Shapes Framelits


The sentiments and the stars are also for the Merry Mice set - this set is on close out so if you are thinking that you want to purchase, don't wait too long as supplies are limited. 





I continued the star theme though to the inside of the card - I love how you can do this with handmade cards, it makes them so complete!

The snow flake background was created using the Sending Love Gasoline Sheets, they are new item available in the Occasions Catalogue - if you want this item before January 4th you can join up and get early access to all the wonderful Occasions Catalogue items now!




It wouldn't be a Christmas card without a little bling, so I added some Silver Sequin Trim - quite by accident I found that this makes the circles look like baubles!

Mojo Monday's sketch gave me the inspiration for the card layout 

and 2 of the 3 images would make a great masculine card

Falling In Love #loveitchopit

Do you have a fear? Is that fear cutting into your beloved Designer Series Paper? My project today was inspired by an incident when I was leaving work


I have a extreme phobia of snakes, I can't even look at a picture without jumping out of my skin; so when I realised that there were live snakes outside the exit to work this afternoon I was beside myself - they were contained but I could still see them and they were moving, and I was terrified! A work colleague saw my distress (and lack of colour in my face) and blocked my view and talked to me so that I was distracted so that I could get past the snakes and to my car, I am so thankful.

Enough about that fear, onto happy thoughts.  I love DSP, but to cut into a piece - oh my what a challenge, and in another way a fear! What if I cut into the piece wrong, what if I don't utilise my cuts and waste this beautiful DSP - I could go on! But I did it, I opened the lovely "Falling in Love" DSP pack and cut into a sheet to create the floral background on my card - and it is so pretty!

I created the striped pattern by stamping in Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride using a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge, I really like the contrast to the floral pattern. The sentiment is from One Big Meaning - I sponged the both of these colours to create a slightly washed out effect as if ink was fading from a fountain pen.

Star of Light | #WWYS92

Christmas is fast approaching, and this week What Will You Stamp is show casing the Star of Light set, I'm sure you will gain some inspiration for your Christmas projects 



My project this week is  a shadow box



I stamped the background with VersaMark and applied clear embossing powder, then sponged the background. The detail on the centre star is just amazing, so intricate and fine. 

I love the dimension that you can create with a Shadow Box, here is another view to show the layers in my project:




Star of Light can also be purchased as a Star of Light with the Starlight Thinlets - the thinlets also have amazing detail, I've mounted my die cuts to strips of cardstock within the shadow box both in the top and bottom of the frame.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Cindy Schuster


Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, today we have Cindy Schuster joining us special guest. Cindy is part of the Artisan design team, it is such an honour to have her join us and to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of her projects, this is the project I chose to CASE:


 Nutmeg Creations with Cindy Schuster

And here is my project:



Foxy Friends has to be one of my favourite sets in this years annual catalogue, but for something a little different I've used the Cozy Critters set, this is a hostess stamp set available during the Holiday catalogue and is just so cute. These stamps coordinate with both the Owl and Fox Builder Punch

I used the masking technique to stamp the scarf in a different colour to the fox and owl and I also got creative with my stitched thinlet dies and created the stitched edging after being inspired by Petra Tailor's demonstration of how to create a rectangle.

I would love it if you could pin my cards! Make sure you hop all the way around our Crazy Crafters hop and see all the incredible ideas and creations, and if you have a chance please leave a comment, we love receiving comments!
