Cookie Cutter Christmas Card with Tin of Tags

10 days and counting down! Christmas is getting closer and closer!

I love the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set! Santa, reindeer, gingerbread man, teddy bear, and this cute little guy, an eskimo! Isn't he adorable!? I also used the Tin of Tags stamp set that coordinates with the Tin of Tags Project Kit. The greeting and the big snowflake in the background are from it. I  used the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to punch out the little eskimo. So EASY! Love it! And I colored it using a blender pen and my ink pads. That cute little red heart is one of the shapes punched out by the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch too.

Merry Mice are Decking the Halls

I love to color! Whether I am using an aqua brush and paints, or my blender pens, or my Prismacolor Pencils, I am one happy camper if I can be coloring an image. I have a few coloring books, but one of my favorite things to color are the images in my stamp sets. This set is called "Merry Mice" and it has 3 images that are just adorable and so fun to color. On these three little cuties, I used my blender pen and my ink pad lids with a little ink smooshed on to it to color them.

All supplies are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise specified:
Stamp set: Merry Mice (#142145)
Inks: StazOn Jet Black (#101406), Dapper Denim (#141394), Cherry Cobbler (#1269660, Cucumber Crush (#138324), Crushed Curry (#131173), Crumb Cake (#126975), Blushing Bride (#131172), Smoky Slate (#131179)
Card stock: Crumb Cake (#120953), Whisper White Thick (#140272)
Accessories: Blender Pens (#102845), Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack (#141991), 
Metallic Foil Doilies (#138392), 5/8" Burlap Ribbon (#141487), Dimensionals (#104430)

These little mice are so cute! When I saw this stamp set for the very first time, I just knew that I was going to be getting it! I hope you like it too!

A Christmas Card Wrapped in a Cable Knit Sweater

So. I have been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to even think, let alone post on my blog. It is so frustrating being so tired that I can barely care for my family, let alone craft a card or write a blog post. But here I am today. I have a small stash of cards to show you, so I will do the best I can to share with you for a few days coming up.

Here is my first offering. A Christmas card! I love the set "Suite Seasons". It is full of fun greetings that cover many of the holidays that occur at this time of year, such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, and...Christmas! It even includes a greeting for cards that you might need for sending comfort. Here is my card:

 All supplies used are from Stampin' Up!:
Stamp Sets: Suite Seasons, Warmth and Cheer
Inks: Archival Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, 1" Circle Punch, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack, Gold Glimmer Paper, Tomboy Multi Liquid Glue, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals

In the close-up, you can see that the little circle heart punch is composed of a few punched layers that I glued together and stacked up on top of each other. I believe I used four layers. I have heard it called "Faux Chipboard". Sounds good to me, so that is what I will call it too! I also love the "Cable Knit" Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder,. It gives so much texture to the background piece! I can't wait to see what other kinds of Dynamic Embossing Folders Stampin' Up! comes out with in the future!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a wonderful day!
