Holiday Hello

Hello friends!

Would you like some extra inspiration with one of the new Your Next Stamp sets?  I love how the train cart "fillings" from Santa Express Train Carts Two can be used in different ways to give your card a whole different look.

Today, I added the ornament and lights cart topper that I cut out with the matching die to a sponged background that I dressed up with a simple die cut Scallop Star Edge border, a few hand cut flags and some Gumdrops.  I love that it looks whimsical and almost elegant with the light colors.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy holiday stamping!

Your Next Stamp Challenge - Mad for Plaid

Good morning!

Today starts a new challenge over at Your Next Stamp and we are looking for cards that are "Mad for Plaid".  I decided to make it easy on myself and used some plaid background paper from the Mint Cocoa Kisses 6x6 Paper Pad.

The sweet little mice are from the new set Holiday Tea and the sentiment is one of my favorites from the Flurry of Happiness set.  I cut out my image and sentiment with dies from the Cool Tag Three Die Set, and used a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out my patterned paper mat. Some Gumdrops  twine and a bit of Stickles finish it off! 

Join us over on the Your Next Stamp Blog to get some more inspiration and be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win!

Your Next Stamp Release Day -

Welcome to my stop on the Your Next Stamp November New Release Blog Hop! (Try saying that 5 times fast...)

I have had such fun playing with the stamps and dies in this release.  There is so much Christmas cuteness!  The set I used today is my very favorite.  What's not to love about bunnies and cookies???

Before I show you my card, don't forget that there is a $25 YNS Gift Certificate prize to one commenter during the hop.  The more blogs you visit and comment on, the better your chance of winning, but you don't have to comment on every blog to qualify.

OK, ready for my Christmas Cookie card??

All together now...


My card is so, so easy.  Even the coloring is easy.  A kraft card base, a Darice embossing folder and some ribbon make the bottom layers.  Then I colored my Christmas Cookie image and cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die and used a Scalloped Stitched Rectangle that I cut in half and resized to make the red scalloped mat.  I stamped the sentiment and hand cut a little flag and then I popped it up with a little knot of twine on the end.  The iridescent sparkly snowflakes were at the bottom of a drawer in my stamp room.  Who knew??   I thought they fit here!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave a comment, and then it's off to hop, hop, hop and shop, shop, shop because there is 20% off with the code below!!

Here's the blog list!  Have fun!
