Mistletoe Magic

 Good Morning, Stampers!

Create a unique background using coordinating die cuts! There are so many possibilities when you incorporate the dies into the background  - it adds depth and diminsion while giving the illusion of it being embossed! Simply add the die cuts onto the card base using the same colored cardstock. Trim off the excess and decorate as desired. So easy!


The Mistletoe Magic is retiring soon!
Be sure to add this bundle to your collection before it's
gone for good. Check my online store HERE for 
details and availability.


SU!pplies:
Stamps: Mistletoe Magic
Ink: Garden Green, Mint Macaron
Paper: Shimmery White, Garden Green, Real Red, Pear Pizzazz, Mint Macaron
Accessories: Layering Circle dies, Mistletoe dies, Soft Seafoam ribbon

So Long to Our Favorites

 Good Morning, Stampers!

We will soon be saying "good-bye" to the current mini catalog in preparation for the NEW mini catalog coming in January. That means lots of our stampin' favorites will soon retire! There is still time to get your wishlist items  - just head to my online store! Most items are on sale while supplies last. Grab them now  - they make perfect stocking stuffers! 

I really have enjoyed creating with the Santa Express products and I am particularly sad to see these items go. Especially the Memories and More card pack. I have just about used up all the pieces from my pack! Right now, you can get the Santa Express Memories and More card packs at half off! Check out all the Santa Express products HERE.


**BONUS**

Purchase $50.00 or more in my online store (before
tax and shipping) and get the Santa Express Holiday
Project PDF's FREE! 

(The PDF will be emailed directly to you after
your online order has shipped)

A Paper Pumpkin Thing - From the North Pole

 Good Morning, Stampers!


Welcome to the November Paper Pumpkin Thing
Blog Hop! The team has lots of fun alternative projects
to share with you today featuring contents from the From the
North Pole tag kit. We hope you find a little inspiration
with these projects to create some alternatives of your own!





For this first card, I combined the stamp set from this kit as well as
the coordinating stamp set from the October Paper Pumpkin kit.
There are so many more opportunities when you combine both 
these coordinating sets!


For this card, I used the BACKSIDE of the glitter snowflake
as a mask to rub on a little Blushing Bride ink using a blending brush.
Once that was done, I added speckles using a water painter
and Cherry Cobbler ink.


I came across this idea when I was scrolling through
Pinterest. I couldn't find instructions so I had to
wing-it as I went along. It's a gift and tasty treat in one!



I hope these ideas gave you a little idea or two that you can incorporate into your 
own alternative projects! Thanks for joining us!
