Hello! Today I have a festive project to share using the fun Merry & Bright stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.I created a shaker card using one of the Nested Circle dies and Doodlebug pattern paper.
These sweet images are so adorable. I colored them with Copics and added glossy accents to Rudulph’s nose and Enamel Accents to the tree. Then I filled the shaker with lots of Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
I also used one of the adorable papers from the Doodlebug pack to put in my simple white frame(from Ikea). The little mini pom pom garland was just a quick little addition. I threaded some mini pom poms on a strand of thread. I took like 2 minutes and I LOVE it! I bought the mini pom poms at my local craft store. They are just so fun when they are in rainbow order!That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello again! Today I have a project featuring the adorable Baby Zoo stamp & dies from Altenew. These baby animals just make me smile and so I added a sentiment from the Halftone Smile set along with the coordinating die.I decided to walk on the wild side and ink up my animals in unexpected colors. I used three inks on each animal to give it that gradient look. The Altenew inks work beautifully for this technique along with the MISTI that help a ton, too.
Here’s a video to show you how I made this card.

Hi there! Today I’m excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp & Lawn Fawn for a special blog hop featuring the Lawn Fawn From the Vault: Merry Christmouse stamps and dies. These were VERY POPULAR when they were first released during STAMPtember 2015 and sold out so quick. I’m so happy that Simon Says Stamp has brought them back for a limited time.
I just adore Lawn Fawn images and was so giddy to play with these cutie patootie mice. I created a row of hanging stockings filled with mice. I used my big foam tape roll as a guide to trace my swooping stocking string with a Multiliner pen and colored the images with Copics.
I blended some Salty Ocean & Cracked Pistachio onto watercolor cardstock for the background.
This next card combined the Merry Christmouse set with the Ready, Set, Snow sets to make a fun shaker.
I used some of that delicious Perfectly Plaid paper for the background along with some Licorice twine on the side and filled the shaker with Caribbean Dream sequin mix.

Hi there! Today I have a fun project to share featuring the Hollow Letters & Little Cat Agenda sets by Mama Elephant.I was inspired by Vera and love how she stamped every cat on her project. I wanted to do something similar because I just can’t choose between which cat to use in this stamp set. I always want to use them all. Cats are like potato chips. You just can’t stop at one, lol!
I knew I had to have an amusing sentiment to go along with all my cats. I found this adorable T-shirt that was just what I was looking for.
Mama Elephant has a great Thank You sale going on right now, too, if you’re interested.
Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great day!
Hi there! Today I have a couple of projects to share showcasing the Oh Joy collection by Pinkfresh Studio. Here I layered a piece of the 12 x 12 pattern paper with a piece of the Gold Transparency that is also from the Oh Joy Collection. The sentiment features one of the Acetate Die Cuts as well as an embossed sentiment from Oh Joy stamp set.
I added a few sequins and made a couple of tassels in coordinating colors using some scraps of twine and gold thread.
On this card I used another piece of the gold transparency that was perfect for making a shaker card.
I popped it up over more 12 x 12 pattern paper and added some coordinating sequins.
The background one this card uses the 12 x 12 paper, more Acetate Die Cuts, some gorgeous Gold Acrylic Stickers as well as a Gold Foil Phrase Sticker.
As you can see, I had trouble putting the collection down. I just love the clean, modern look to everything.
More pattern paper featured here and another Acrylic Die Cut for the sentiment. I made a couple more tassels in coordinating colors and added a few sequins.
Hope you enjoyed these fun projects featuring this most gorgeous Oh Joy collection! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great day!
