Popcorn Celebration Birthday card

Hello again and Happy Thursday!  Today I'm sharing a card made for my little cousin's 40th!  What a great age.

I used the Simon Says Stamps I Chews You Kit and thought this would be great for my movie loving cousin, along with some movie tickets.  I put a little yellow ink behind the popcorn, the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit, and the numbers are from a Cuttlebug numbers die set.  Just a quick post today - thank you for taking a look!

Monochrome Sunbonnet Christmas Girl

Hello and Happy Hump Day!!  Today I'm sharing a "new release" from Bugaboo Stamps in my Christmas card:

I thought I'd go monochrome which I haven't done in forever.  The white panel was originally left white but I thought it was too bright so I did something like the smooshing technique, using a copic refill and alcohol.  I put drops of color and drops of alcohol on acetate, and since it was so runny, instead of flipping the acetate onto the cardstock, I flipped the cardstock onto the acetate in the areas I wanted color - clear as mud?  Either way, I was happy with the outcome.

I added lots of glossy goodness to the snowball but left everything else rather plain.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  Oh, and this cute Bugaboo Image is Sunbonnet Winter.

Thanks for taking a peek and have a wonderful week.

Snowman Fancy

Hello and happy hump day!  It's also the day before Thanksgiving in the states, so I'm just going to say now: Happy Thanksgiving!  Today I'm sharing a card for the latest Catch the Bug Challenge Blog: Bingo (click on link for bingo card).

So I'm featuring a Christmas card with the following Bingo items: Sentiment, Embossing (heat not dry), and Sparkle.  I'm featuring a Bugaboo Stamp image from the Snowman Block set and the sentiment is from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit.
Plus, it's a fancy fold!  Hopefully you can see what's going on with the fold from the pic.  My snowflakes are from a Tim Holtz set I had been wanting for forever and this is my first chance to use these dies.

Thank you for taking a look and have a wonderful day and week.

This meets the following challenges: Crafty Sentiments: Snowman, Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Stamps+Fun=Creativity: White & Blue, and Digi Doodles: Christmas/Winter.
