White on white for Dies R Us

It's all about white on white for the challenge at Dies R Us this week!

Our Challenge Blog

I think white on white cards are always so elegant.
 There's just something about them that stands out. 

For my card, I used Sue Wilson's Shadow box dies. I added some Cheery Lynn Poinsettia's, Lawn Fawn snowflakes, and a trio of fir trees from Impression Obsession. Then I added my sentiment and some tiny blue pearls.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

                                                       Cheery Lynn Happy Christmas (snowflakes)
                                                        Lawn Fawn Snowflakes
                                                               Impression Obsession Fir Trees
                                                        Sue Wilson Christmas Shadow Box
                                                       Sue Wilson Scalloped Lattice Frame B

Head on over to the Dies R Us Challenge blog and play along with our white on white challenge, we would love to see your cards in the gallery!

Concord and 9th Trim the Tree Tags

Hi everyone!

Yes....more tags, and I STILL have more to post! Hopefully I will get them all in this week yet. Today I lumped 3 sets together.

All of them are made with the tag die from Tim Holtz "Happiest Holidays" set. You know, I hardly paid anything for that set at Hobby Lobby,(coupons) and I have already used it TONS!

The other set I have used so much is Concord and 9th's Trim the Tree. Here I used just the sentiment, "Fa la la." The other sentiment is from Impression Obsession, and the cute as can be stitched mittens are from Memory Box.

The last set of tags are made from the dollar spot at Target!!!

I make a weekly run into the store and always hit the dollar spot, I find lots of treasures that I think have to come home with me. This time it was the cute washi tape!

All I added was a snowflake from Cheery Lynn and an enamel dot.

Have a great day everyone!

More tags!

Hi everyone! 

Today's tags are made with some buffalo plaid paper to match my Christmas wrapping paper. 
The black bears are from a friend,I think they are cut out with a cricut. The tree's are from Tim Holtz "Tree Line" many uses for that die!

The tags above are from Tim Holtz Happiest Holidays set, and the circles below are from Tutti Designs, called Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles.

Most of the gold sentiments are from Cheery Lynn's Winter Holiday Word set. The Noel is from Poppystamps though, and I cut off the top snowflake. I tied on some gold string, and they were ready to go!

Have a great day!

My Favorite Things Deer Love Tag set

Hi everyone!

Here are some of the tags I made this season, as promised! I'll have more to share in the next few days,too.

This set is made with My Favorite Things, "Deer Love" set. The tag itself is from Tim Holtz called, "Happiest Holidays." 

I love both of these sets! 

The deer are so fun, and well SO adorable. I've been having a good time with them. The Happiest of Holidays set is awesome too! It comes with an embossing folder, wreath stamp and die besides the tag die. I haven't even tried all of that out yet! But I sure have been getting good use out of the tag, as you can see.
I did some white embossed snowflakes on a couple, and made snow on the others with a gel pen. The snow banks are made with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders. The sentiments are from Penny Black's Festive Snippets, one of my all time favorite stamp sets.

Here's a list of supplies I used:

Stamps: Penny Black Festive Snippets
Ink: SU black, and Versamark
Dies: MFT Deer Love,Tim Holtz Happiest Holidays
Other:white embossing powder, bakers twine,white get pen

Concord and 9th Trim the Tree for The Paper Players

Hi everyone!

The challenge from Claire at The Paper Players is:

 Hmmm...the lemon lime really through me, and actually I don't have any any. Then I saw my plaid stamp from Concord and 9th sitting on my desk, and thought it would be a perfect way to use the colors! 

 I did have garden green and melon mambo ink. I substituted the lime for certainly celery though, as it was the closest I had. Then I stamped my plaid background. You can see the lines of  the 3 colors below:

I used the positive and negative to make 2 cards, which I saw on a Jennifer McGuire video here.

Then I white embossed the sentiments and did some splatters with white acrylic paint mixed with water, and a toothbrush. After it dried, I adhered the powder pink and melon layered letters and bows, and tied on some string.

These were fun to make!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Paper Players Design Team:

I hope you will join us this week!

Reminder: The Paper Players will be taking a break for the holidays after this challenge and will be back Sunday, Jan. 7th.

Merry Christmas!!
