Celebrating the Season!

Happy Monday Everyone! I just returned from working out at the gym and let me tell you, my legs feel like jell-o. I have a lot of work ahead of me!

Today I have two cards to show you and they both celebrate different holiday seasons!

The first one is a card I created for Stamp & Create’s Product Spotlight which this week is “Hallowe’en” All Hallowe’en themed stamps will be at a 25% discount! That is a phenomenal deal!

I used the whimsical "Boo Family in Frame"  and "Boo" sentiment by High Hopes Stamps. I used Nestabilities dies to create my card base. Lacey doesn’t have this one in stock but Labels 16 would give a very similar effect! I added some gorgeous brown & ivory check ribbon to finish the card off! I will enter this into the Magical Monday Challenge and Stamp with Fun challenges both whose theme this week is Hallowe’en.


My second card features one of the newly released Whiff of Joy Stamps! Isn’t he the sweetest. A must have if you love sweet cuddly bears ~ Ice-Beary Greetings! (can also be found at Stamp & Create ~here~)

My fellow DT member Nichol had created some snow-globe cards using her Silhouette. Now I am not in possession of one of these lovelies but I loved the effect so much that I figured out how to create one myself using circle nestabilities and a little free-hand drawing! There is an acetate circle covering the colored image and it gives a fun effect. I created the snow-cap by adding liquid appliqué and some crystal stickles. The paper is by Best Creations and the image is colored with Copic Sketch markers! The tag is made with a Fancy Tags spellbinders die and the sentiment is also WOJ from one of the new sentiment sets! 


That is it for me! I have more laundry to fold (it is neverending) and the groceries to do before my kiddies are home!
