Foxy Shaker Ornament

Hi friends! You've been seeing a lot of me lately! I got on a roll with creating and got behind on photography, which meant a big lapse, then a ton of projects to share! Today I have a card and a little DIY shaker ornament to share with you.


First up is this foxy little card featuring images from the adorable Warm Winter Friends set. Isn't he cute all bundled up with socks and a scarf?  I added some of the gifts and flower accessories from the set to make a little focal collage, cutting everything with the coordinating dies. I added this to a circle I stenciled with the Vintage Doily Stencil and then added the Merry Christmas sentiment.


I used a couple of patterns of Echo Park paper for my simple layout, then added both of the borders from the Scallop Border Die Set.

Next up, I used scraps of that same designer paper for the back portion of my ornament shaker.  It is cut with the newly re-released Christmas Ornament Tag Die Set.  I paired it with a shaker die from my stash and taped them together to cut just an ornament frame several times to layer up for dimension.  I glued one of these frames over the shaker cup, added the sequins and then glued everything together.


The ornament topper and joy word were die cut from gold cardstock.  I used the Peace & Joy Word Dies, cutting several times and layering for dimension. I finished off with some gold ribbon and quickly trimmed out one of the flowers from my leftover paper scraps to accent the top. I can't wait to make more of these for my holiday gift giving!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great day!

Pumpkin Spice, Spice, Baby



Hi friends! Today I'm popping in with a couple of cards I created with the fabulous new Jaded Blossom release. Y'all know I love coffee stamps, and Autumn themed stamps, so it's no wonder that lots of goodies that fit both of these themes hopped into my shopping cart.


My first card pairs the new Pumpkin Juice set with the previously released Thankful for my Gnomie set. I stamped the images and colored with Copic markers, then fussy cut.  I then cut the Treat Tag Die from dark roast cardstock and Carta Bella designer paper. Then I stamped the tag design from Pumpkin Juice on the patterned paper portion and assembled the tag, adding dimension to my pumpkin mug, and topping the tag off with ribbon and twine.

The gnomie and pumpkin are added in the corner with foam adhesive, as well, for a little pop, then I used the same designer paper for my background,  and finished with a few sequins.


My second card features the giant coordinating pumpkin mug in the Pumpkin Spice Season set. I colored it up with Copic markers, then fussy cut the leaves and mug, embossing the hello pumpkin sentiment from Pumpkin Picking. I then stamped the image again on kraft cardstock and stenciled tone on tone with the Pumpkin Stencil.  Then I pieced the colored pumpkin onto the stamped pumpkin and tucked a few leaves I had cut and colored behind the mug.


I used the same technique with evergreen bough and cracked pistachio inks for the main background of the card.  I accented with a polka dot knotted bow and added the pumpkin kisses and harvest wishes sentiment from Pumpkin Picking down below. A few rhinestones and this card is ready to mail.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day!
