It looks like "rein" "deer"

Two more cards using Whiff of Joy stamps , Charlotte with reindeer and Wee and reindeer. I coloured both using my copic markers--love them!!! I added some cordoroy button brads and stickles on her headband and for the bells on the reindeer's collar on Charlotte's card and some SU! buttons on Wee's card. I've tried to use a collection of designer paper to add colour and pizzazz. The paper then dictates the palette. I am known to "hoard" a few packs of paper and just love them all, it's hard to use them. Any one else have this love of paper? I thought so. It's OK as long as you admit it. Enjoy the cards and happy stamping.

Wee wee wee

I've found some new and funky stamps from Switzerland from a company called Whiff of Joy. These whimsical gnomes (Wee and bird, tree, and drum) are so fun to colour and I really loved putting them together with all the colourful designer papers. I also purchased some copic markers and tried my hand at blending. I love how easy they are to use and also how they look so nice once you're finished. Hope you like them. I have one more to create but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see it.

Thanks for looking.

Slider, shaker and pull card

How fun is this. I finally got to try out making a slider and pull card. The shaker card I had made before but usually had a Christmas theme or birthday theme to it. The Valentine's theme was just perfect. I love the mix of the pink and red chunky glitter.

My ever-so-accommodating upline Alison always lets me join her classes at the very last minute and I am grateful for that. I just live down the street so it is so very easy to drop in. Thank you Alison. I absolutely love how these cards turned out. I know I will be making more. All cards used SU! products and of course they all coordinate so famously.

Have a great day and happy stamping.

More tags

Here are some other tags I made using some new stamps that just came in the mail. Hope you like them. The tag with the fairies uses the rolled marble technique and dazzling diamonds. The other tag uses distress stickles on the birds and crystal effects on the "a little note" scroll. Thanks for looking.

Here is a set of cards and tags I made as a gift. I loved using the snowflake die from SU! It was so easy and really added a focal point to the card. Hope you like them.
We just had to dress the cats up like santa in their red coats. Miso didn't mind so much but Tanji (orange cat) was not impressed. We had to bribe him by putting his favourite toy in front of him--his string. Thanks for looking.

I'm back!!

I've been delving into a new area for me...vintage. I just love all the cards/tags I've been seeing on the web and have fallen in love with the old style especially vintage santas. Here are some tags I made having seen Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas. Check out his website for more details.
