Ho Ho Ho!!!

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
How's your Christmas shopping, card making,
decorating, & baking coming along??

Do you think you're finally near the finish line?
Or do you have a looong way to go yet?
I'm near the finish line - I decided
to try baking a little early, so everything is in
the freezer and my family can take whatever
they want out when they want it -

I've never frozen my baked goods before --
this is the 1st year I'm trying it 
and just like the 
other things I've been doing early...
I kind of like it! You really don't have to be an
organized person to get a jump start -
Or at least I don't think so... (wink wink)


I thought I would share another Holiday card
I made using a Fabulous Victorine Originals Stamp --




OMGOSH!!! Isn't this sooo CUTE?? I LOVE the way
this turned out! The stamp is called Ornament Ho Ho Ho! (5108-S)
It's a large stamp, as you can tell by my card!

I stamped my sweet image on some Tim Holtz bright white 
watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx black ink
Then coloring it up with my Zig Real Brush pens & a clear
Wink of Stella pen




Hopefully you can see the glitter on this card - I tried to get a good shot --
I added some Peachy Keen Face stamps to my Ornaments for
a Fun, whimsical card! 




I used a stitched Rectangle die to cut out my image, and popped it
up with a piece of white Fun Foam. The designer Paper is Doodlebug, and the the
Cardstock I'm using is Recollections 110lb. white & Green
I didn't add anything else to this card, because I wanted the Fun Image
to be my main focal point - and I think it really stands out on it's own!!




As you know by now, I like to get the insides done too - 
I'm using another wonderful
Victorine Originals stamp - 
this one is called May the Joy
and I added a border strip along with a couple of snowflakes
just to tie it all together!




We still have our Challenge going on over at


  Our Mood Board is - ALL DECKED OUT



 You can follow the Theme or Use the inspiration photo
or Use the color combo all use all 3!!! You don't have to use
a stamp from Victorine Originals if you don't have one!

Spiced Pumpkin Latte....

Happy Tuesday Crafty Peeps!!
Today, I thought I would switch gears
and share a Thank You card -- 

You know, we all need them on had
for those special people in our lives! :)

I actually made this card back in October
and I have NOOO clue why I didn't share it sooner!!!


I totally LOVE the way this card turned out! It took me 3 or 4 days to complete it -
How crazy is that??? 
I started with the ADORABLE (Pumpkin Spice 6x6 
paper pad) - PINK & MAIN & the Blue DP from Doodlebug (Fall Friends)
Along with the (Stitched Topper Die) - JADED BLOSSOM
I knew I wanted to use both items on my card along with the
(Coffee Cup Die) from MFT -- They were sitting on my desk and
I started to have a plan... but then I didn't like where it was going
That's why it took me 3 or 4 days! LOL 
I had to leave it a couple of days then came back to it --


That's when I went CIRCLE crazy!!! Hahaha
I pulled out my SSS (Stitched Circle Dies) and
started to die cut all sorts of sizes with that Pumpkin Spice paper --
Then I placed them where I thought they'd look nice
and that was it! LOL, Of course, I needed a sentiment
so I pulled out my (Coffee Break) Stamp set from My Creative Time
Which fit perfectly in the space on the blue circle
The heart trio stamp is from (Coffee & Tea) - SSS
and the Small Heart Dies are from MFT (BluePrints #32)

I finished off my card with some Doodlebug Glitter Sparkles
& Clear Adhesive Gems from Stampin' Up

Other items used --

Stitched Rectangle Die - MFT
Big Shot, Misti, ATG, White Fun Foam,
Chocolate Chip Ink from SU, ThemOWeb tape runner


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a FANTASTIC DAY!!

Sitting Santa Christmas...

Happy Monday fellow crafters!
How was your weekend? Mine was
really nice, cuz I took time to sit and watch a few
of my Favourite Christmas Movies - I actually
have WAY to Many Favorites! LOL

And, with it still being the holiday season I thought 
I would share another Christmas card I made -
This will be in the 2018 stockpile! (Wink Wink)


I LOVE Doodlebug - I know I've said it before... and I tend
to HOARD my Doodlebug papers! I know, I know... It SHOULD
be used... But it's sooo CUTE!! I know you Paper Hoarders Get Me!!

I just hate to use it and sometimes I end up buying 2 packs -
(1) that I use and the other that I keep until I really want to use it!

So with that in mind - YES I own 2 paper packs of this
ADORABLE Milk & Cookies Paper Pack Collection! HAHAHA

I used the Santa Visit Doodle-Pop for my image
The Acetate Heart is from the Odds & Ends
The sentiment is part of the paper pack
Assorted jewels are from Lucy's Cards

Stitched Rectangle Die is from MFT
Stitched Circle Die is from Simon Says Stamp
Stitched Strip is from MFT


Of course, I did the inside - Using a lovely Sentiment from
My Craft Spot (no longer in business) and I cut a strip of
that Doodlebug paper for the border - Then I cut one of the
cute square images out of the paper and punched
2 hearts out as well - I used my Clear Wink of Stella pen, to sparkle
it all up! And now I've got another holiday card ready to go!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a FABULOUS DAY!!!

live in really cold areas! I figure they could use a 
Pick me Up during those months, so this is one
of the cards I made using the Carta Bella (All Bundled Up) Collection


I designed my card in my Silhouette program and used
my Print & Cut feature --
The Stitched Rectangle Die & Scallop Border Die are from My Creative Time

I used a snowflake embossing folder on the white banner
Banner Die - My Favorite Things
Rainbow Sparkle Mix & Ice Cube Jewels - Lucy's Cards

SumMore Fun - Mood Board Challenge #17

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
Today... starts another FUN Challenge over at: 

 YAY! I know how you
guys enjoy a good Challenge!


Our Mood Board is ALL DECKED OUT - 



 You can use the Mood Board or go by the Theme
or Use the color combo or Use all 3!!! You don't have to use
a stamp from SumMore Fun if you don't have one!


All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!



Here's what I created to inspire you --




I wanted to use the Color Combo and some of the photo's
that are on the Mood Board -- 

I'm using the super cute RAISIN BOAT Stamp
set called HOLIDAY WISHES (9309-Z)



This set has so many fun sentiments on it!!

As most of you already know - I finished my holiday cards
already for this year - In Fact, they are in the mail already!
So, I'm already starting on next years!

Don't be mad at me for doing this - I just think this has
saved me so much time this year - Making one a week
throughout the year was a great challenge for me and
I plan to keep it up - Just to have all my cards done, signed,
sealed, & Stamped before December 1st was AWESOME!!!





I used 4 different ink colors to match the mood board colors and
added some Spritz Shimmer Sparkle spray over the top -
Since the sentiment had "Sparkle & Shine" in it - I wanted my card
to do just that - "SPARKLE" - I also used a wonky stitched die
just to give my card a little character! I added a matching gem
to each of the centers of the snowflakes and then added some
clear sparkle gems all over my card! I used a piece of
white fun foam to POP up my top layer, just so it has a little
more lift to it --




As you guys know, I like to have my insides complete as well -
I used the swirl bow stamp in the set & used it 
as a creative border on the inside of my card -
It turned out so cute and of course a nice holiday sentiment to tie
the entire card together!

Another card down for next year! Only a bunch more to go!!!


I hope you guys can join us --
 I would LOVE to see what you create!

Merry & Bright Trio....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Today's my day to take over the blog at:
YAY for me... 🙌

I thought I would show you a Set of
Christmas cards I created - I was inspired by
a video I watched of Jennifer McGuires -





Some of you know I've made this style of card before - Usually I make

it with a shape type of card - it's a card with a FLAT Back -
It's not your "Normal" Top folding type of card --

I cut my white Cardstock out 3x's (since I was making 3 cards)
The size is 3 1/4" w x 10" H (scored @ 5") so it can fold
My Kraft Cardbase is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece
then my Red Designer Paper is 4 x 5 1/4

The stamped images are a trio 
called Cactus Pine and Palm Christmas
which is a Victorine Original Stamp set

The Merry & Bright Sentiment I'm using 
is from Raisin Boat and it's called
Let it Snow (9085-Z)

Both can be found easily in the 
SumMore Fun Online Store



Here's the first one - I'm using Canson Watercolor paper
and my Zig Real brush pens 
to color in all the stamped images -
The designer Papers are ALL Scraps -
Which is what I like most about making these cards


Here's the Fun Cactus card - I did use a small
stitched rectangle die, just to add a little extra
something around the images -- and then I
used a Stitched Scallop border die --
I heat embossed the Sentiment with some
Fine White embossing powder and then
cut them out with a small banner die --


And now the cute Palm Tree! I really think these stamps
are fun & whimsical - perfect to send to some in Texas
or Arizona or Hawaii! You know, those really nice
warm states during the holidays! LOL


This is what the insides look like 
along with how these cards open! They are
top fold opening type cards, but smaller in size
attached to a regular sized card base -
I really Hope I made sense!! 


I stamped all the inside sentiments with another Raisin Boat
stamp set - this one is called Festive Phrases (9310-Z)
and then I just added some border strips to each inside card
so they can match the outside of the cards --
