Christmas Cutie

Hi Everyone!

I have started on Thank Yous as I have gotten some very sweet gifts from the students at school already.  I broke out my brand new Purple Onion Designs stamps for this one and played along at Muse for the first time.  The very simple layout of Marion Vagg's was perfect for the image I wanted to use, which is a fuzzy critter just like hers.  I stamped my image on a square panel and matted it to frame it, as Marion's image is framed with a box- kind of.  :)  I love the placement of the sentiment!

I also played along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and their great inspiration board-love the snowy dog.  I don't have a snowy dog stamp, but I do have a snowy polar bear stamp!

Christmas Card Challenges # 2 is CAS. 

Stamplorations Challenge this month is 'Stamps and Designers Choice'.  I chose 'Stamps and Markers'.

Thanks so much for stopping in and have a Blessed weekend!

Supplies Used-
Stamps- Purple Onion Design; sentiment is Sweet 'n Sassy
Ink- Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper-Calypso Coral, Curious Metallic Cryogen White cs
Other- Copics, Simply Scored

Final Day to Get Your Free Die!

Good Morning Everyone!

The clock is ticking down- only 1 week to Christmas AND, today is the last day to take advantage of a great deal at Top Dog Dies.  You can get the Snowman Globe Die FREE when you spend $70 or more! 
I also have one more card made with the Ornaments and Tags #1 Die Set; yep I can't get enough of this die! 

I went a bit rustic, yet elegant with this card,  using Naturals White cs shades of brown and an evergreen print embossing folder.  Contrasted that with Brushed Gold cs and a large, sheer red bow. 

If you shop at Top Dog Dies from one of my links, I thank you in advance as I get 
credit for your purchase.  

Thanks so much for popping in; have a Blessed day!

Merry Christmas From Add a Little Dazzle

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to Wednesday and the last challenge with Add a Little Dazzle for the year 2014.  Hard to believe that Christmas is just over a week away!  Seems it was just Thanksgiving!
Monica has a dazzling inspirational photo for us this week; I hope you can find some crafty time to join us!

This is so luxurious, so elegant, and that is how I was inspired! 

I broke out a MFT stamp set that I have had for a year or two, but had yet to use; sad isn't it?
This sentiment was perfect for what I had in mind.  I embossed it in gold and then kept a neutral 
color theme, allowing the snowflakes and glitz to take center stage.
I used my Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps snowflake dies to die cut the Golden Glimmer, Wondrous White and silver Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal.  

I used the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge~

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is 'Anything Goes' this week.

Love the inspiration photo at Just Add Ink, too!

Tis' The Season has Snowflake and bling inspiration this week

We would love for you to join us this week.  You do not need to use craft metal, but if you have it, we would love to see it!
Check out the rest of the gorgeous DT inspiration on the Add a Little Dazzle Blog, and then link up your creation!

Ready to try your own Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal?  Needing to buy yourself a
 Christmas present?  You can get yours HERE!  I thank you in advance if you
 purchase from this link as I get credit for your order.  

Have a Blessed Day!

Last Minute Christmas with Top Dog Dies!

Hi Everyone!

Wow!  Just over 1 week and we will be celebrating Christmas!  Are you like me, working on last minute cards? 
The Ornament and Tags Set #1 from Top Dog Dies has been my go-to  Christmas item this season.  While entirely different, both of these cards were made with the Ornament and Tags Set #1

I love the Nordic look and used the light blue, red and white color scheme to achieve that here.  I also used the Gift Tag Die Set for the red mat behind the ornament.
The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  

Yep, I used the Ornament and Tags Die #1 Set for this card as well.  The belt buckle was made with the tag from this die set.  I die cut it from Brushed Gold cs and then punched a circle in the center of it.  My black 'belt' was embossed with clear ep.  Santa's suit was textured with the Modern Mosaic A2 Mat Die.  Some 'fur trim' was added using one of the banners from the Top Dog Dies Banners #1 Die Set.  My 'HO HO HO' ( I love the ho hos!)  is die cut with the Holidays Die Set.

Did you know that Top Dog Dies has a great deal right now?  Spend $70 and get the fabulous Snowman Globe Die Set FREE!   That would be this snowman globe here~
 But you have to hurry, as the special offer ends December 18th! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you decide to shop at Top Dig Dies from one of these
 links, I thank you in advance as I get credit for your purchase.  

Have a Blessed week!

Mixing It Up with Just Us Girls!

Hi Everyone!

Boy, it is soooo good to be back amongst bloggers!  I have been without a computer for a couple of weeks and could hardly use the computer for about a month prior to that.  Needless to say, I am thrilled to have a functioning computer allowing me to follow blogs, leave comments, and participate in challenges!  And I have a bonus for the month of December- guest designing with the Design Team from the "Just Us Girls" Challenge!  I missed last week due to the whole computer thing, but this week I am ready to go!
So, I am jumping in here for Trend Week, and it is a fun one- mixed media!

I used several mediums for my card including ink mixed with alcohol to spritz, embossing paste, embossing powder and wood.

Being a little low on mojo, I used the versatile sketch at Retrosketches~

As you can see, I took a little creative license here; I flipped the sketch and substituted tree branches for the stripes. 
I used  Die-Namites Dies, the wonderful bird cage from Poppystamps, and the sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  The bird cage is embossed with pewter embossing powder for wonderful shine.

I am also linking this up to the challenge at Poppystamps- Sparkle and Shine.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a blessed week,

Lee Ann  :)

Supplies Used-
Stamps- Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Tender Thoughts, SU Gorgeous Grunge
Ink- Island Indigo, Versamark
Paper- Calypso Coral, Pistachio, Blush Blossom, Baked Brown Sugar
Other- Poppystamps bird cage die, Die-Namites  Spring Blossom and Shady Tree, embossing paste, Pewter ep
