Christmas Pocket Card withTag

Good morning everyone!

I wanted to pop in today and share a pocket card and tag with you! :)    
I used the adorable Snowman Country Cute image from Crissy's Digi's- available at Whimsy Stamps. It's colored with Copics, cut out with a MFT Stitched Circle die and then I added a touch of Picket Fence Distress Stickles. To create the pocket and tag I used several dies out of the MFT Blueprints 9 set... I LOVE this set, it's so fun to work with!  

Here's a better look at the tag:
I cut the sentiment out of Paper Smooches 'Christmas Words' dies and I used a recollections punch for the snowflakes... added the hand dyed seam binding and a few turquoise sequins and there you have it!

 I won't post again until next week- so I wanted to wish all of my US friends a
Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Tammy

Autumn Leaves

Good morning everyone!
 It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times!
  
This week it's Hazel's turn to host the challenge and she chose the fabulous theme...
Autumn Leaves
I decided to use my adorable Wheat Riley image again, I love this little moose! :) He's stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and I added a bit of shading with Prisma pencils. For the sentiment I painted some chipboard letters and then covered them with Rock Candy Distress Stickles, the papers are from Bo Bunny- the Apple Cider collection. The fence was cut with a MB die, I used a MFT die for the Cornstalk and a QuicKutz die for the large leaves in the corner... punched some tiny leaves, added a touch of Vintage Photo Distress ink... and it's done!

Now head on over to the main challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations by the other team members!

Snowflake Dancer

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

I wanted to pop in today and share a Christmas card with you... I won this Snowflake Dancer last week from Wee Stamps! Isn't she adorable?!! I was one of the lucky winners who received all three of Sylvia's new stamps! Thank you Sylvia! 
I printed out this little cutie and colored her with Copics, I then added a bit of sparkle to her hair with the clear Wink of Stella pen- and this time you can actually see some of the shimmer in the photo!! :) The background was embossed with the CB Snowflake folder and spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mist. I cut the snowflakes out with a Sizzix die, covered them with Dry Rock Candy Distress glitter and I also used Rock Candy Distress Stickles on her scarf, trim and shoes. The bingo card is from Teresa Collins, stamped with VersaMark ink and dusted with chalk, the sentiment is a $1 stamp from Michaels... added several gems and there you have it!

That's all for now... enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!
