12 Day of Christmas -Day 10 Plain and Simple

Hello everyone.. Let me start by apologizing; I am soo sorry that this is a day late. All I can say is that with the family home and the holiday right around the corner. the day just got a way from me!!

For day 10 of my 12 day of Christmas, I went Clean and Simple.. It took me No time at all to whip these two cards.. 
 I used one stamp set which is a Clear Stamp set from The Greeting Farm.. "Clear Christmas".. Some colored Memento ink ribbon Twine and a little embellishment.
 I started with some white card stock and cut them in to 3 X 41/2 stamped my image added my sentiment, tied a piece of red twine, and added a little embellishment
For this one I did the same but I went in with my cuttle bug and added a little frame. I used some gorgeous Ribbon from Martha Stewart, I love it because it has the Christmas Tree on it.. So it's just Gorgeous!!!

12 Day of Christmas- Day 9 Looking Back

Hi everyone.. Ok.. I just wanted to stop by and post my Day 9 of my 12 day of Christmas cards.
 Again I wanted to show some of my previous work.. This was done back in 2010.. I got a tutorial from 'youtube' showing how to make these adorable little tags.. they were soo cute and easy to make..
 This was my Very First attempt and making a circle ornament card.. I Just Love this sentiment.. and as you can see there was No coloring done for this.. As a matter of fact non of the cards I am showing had No images to color.. Wanted to so a little diversity with my projects.. I got this sentiment from "The Cutting Cafe".. Love Love it..
My last one.. I just used basic card stock and some chipboard from a Paper pack I believe from Echo Park.. I used a cuttle bug folder a beautiful white and silver ribbon and I was done. Very easy but very cute

Happy Scrapping,

12 Day of Christmas- Day 6 Tag Your It

Hi everyone. I am back with Day 6 of my 12 Days of Christmas cards and Projects.. I have a very fun and quick project to share with you.".TAG YOUR IT"

 I wanted to share these cute tags that I made.They where very simple and easy to make.. I used a scrap piece of Kraft card stock. several small stamp images that are part of several different stamp set.
 Here are my basic supply.. with my piece of card stock I was able to cut out 7 tags with my Tag die and stamp from Paper Trey Ink".. (card stock was left over after I cut a 5 X  51/2 card stock so it measured at  3 X 11. I used my Memento due drops in several different colors and some twine also in different colors..I ran my die thru my cuttle bug and stamped and decorated my tags...finished off with my white gel pen, twine, and I was all done..
We all have dies, and tags and little stamps and embellishments that we can use to create creative  and fun tags for all those gifts that we are wrapping.. I hope I have inspired you or at least given you an idea to try something different.

Have a Great and Crafty weekend and I will see you all back here tomorrow.

Happy Scrapping,

Hello everyone.. Happy Friday, I hope that your Friday is going great and that you have a wonderful weekend to look forward to.. I am here with "Day 5 of my 12 days of Christmas and my theme for today is "Naughty or Nice".. looking at my cute little Anya with her sexy little dress and her cute wings. You can decide for your self. :0)))
I am again playing along with another challenge this week from the TGF.. Now I have to say that it was Not planned this way at all. But seeing that I have Not really enjoyed my stamps from the TGF and being that I have quite a few, I thought it was perfect timing to pull out some of my holiday images and get them 'inked' up!!
This card will be entered into the monthly Retro Challenge from The Greeting Farm.. I created a Christmas card with "Non-traditional Christmas colors. I stamped and colored my image with Memento ink and colored with Prisma and OMS.. my DP. is from "Echo Park" This & That.. beautiful set of 6x6 paper.  Twine was from a wining that I had received. and the tag is from Recollection's from Michael's.. I stamped the sentiment from PTI.. directly on to it. and it was perfect.. 

 Here is a close up of Nice.. I just love this stamped and have only colored her up once before.. But I know that she "Will" be coming out more often to play.. for her wings I used my "gold metallic" Prisma Pencils and OMS.. and added some glitter glue on the inside.. for her halo I colored with the same gold metalilic and added my clear sakura gell pen. I then cut her out with my Oval Nesti and popped her up on top of my card with pop dot.

Here is another look at my completed card.

Thank you all for sticking with my. I will be adding much more projects, and others in the next week..

12 Days of Christmas- Day 1

Hello everyone.. Happy Monday, I hope you all had a great weekend.. As I am in the middle of my work week. I am looking forward to my Friday in about 2 days.. In the mean time, I am again challenging me self with keeping up with my posting and projects, I am determined to get my Holiday cards out in the mail on time this year.. and I thought it would be helpful and fun if I do a " 12 Days of Christmas" holiday card and projects series.
I have gotten about half of the 12 days done, it's only matters if I make every attempt to get them all done, mailed out and posted her on my blot to share with you all.. 
So here is Day 1:

 I made this card for one of my DT projects so it is doing duel duties. I made this Sweet card using "TGF Cheeky Cherry Pie:.. I am in no way a baker, but my Daughter is and I think she looks cute and sassy with her Apron and Pie.
 I stamped with with Memento ink and then colored her up with my Prisma and OMS..  I then cut her out with my Nesti Circle and Scallop punch and layered her. I made the paper roses a while ago, and as I was looking for some embellishments they where perfect. My Bling is just some left over that I had for a while, and then I finished of with some dots with my white gel pen.
I have heard several crafty friends say that they found MME's paper from Michael' So while I was there after Thanksgiving I was able to pick up 2 packs that they had.. This is one of them.. MME' Christmas" Gorgeous paper and Designs. Love to know that I can get them locally now.

Here is the Inside of my card.. I used some of the same DP as the Front, and red card stock that I punched with my Scallop punch.. Sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.

Ok my fellow Crafty, this is all for me today.. I got this posted before I leave for work.. So that is a Plus.. I hope you come by tomorrow and see another card.  Just seeing me post several time for the week might peek your interest. 

Have a great and Crafty Week,

A Little Treat for December

Hello there, How are you.. Happy Holidays and ALL that good stuff.. I have been away from my posting for some times.. With the Thanks giving holiday and the kids being out of school, my time was made up of nothing much less.. I am hoping to start off this month a little better with my posting, as I have several Holiday projects to share with you this month..Soo lets start!!!

My first project was one that I made for my post over at "Scraps of Color".. I made these little treats that can be given out as "stocken stuffers, teachers gifts, or as a great after dinner surprise.

here is what the look like completed. I should have had a better picture of my Gum"which is the main component for this project.
I should have had a better picture of my Gum"which is the main component for this project.
So I got a pack of these gum on sale at the local grocery store.. and started with my supplies
card stock cut at 3 5/8 x 6 7/8.. Then I scored them at 21/2 & 2 3/4 and again at 5 1/4 & 5 5/8
I then used some DP.. and the best thing again is to try and use up any "scraps of DP" that you may have and want to use up. I cut my DP at. 2: @ 2 3/8 x 3 5/8 and for the flap I cut that at 1 3/8 x 3 5/8. This is what it looks like after all DP is added I did use my scallop punch for a little decorative boarder edge.
Now all you have to do is use some two sided tape to make the gum stay in place and you are done.

I got these great tags from "Whimsie Doodles" during their black Friday sale.. But if you look at their freebie page you will find several great tags that you can print out and color for "Free". I printed out a sheet and colored them with my prisma pencils and Oms.. then cut out with my 2 inch punch.. Very simple.:0)
And this again is what they look like completed. Very easy to put together...If you wanted to you can pre cut all your card stock and DP and then just have an assembly line and make them easy and quickly.

I hope you like my little project. I plan to make about 40 of them for my job and a couple more that I will use for the teachers gift and a stockens stuffers.

Happy Scrapping,
