Christmas Holidays


Today is the second last challenge for 2019 with the Crazy4Challenges design team.
Being that it is a busy time of the year, Hostess Frances is keeping our challenge today fairly simple.

 Use your favorite holiday stamps/dies on your creations. If you don't celebrate Christmas, then use one of your favorite stamps/dies.


I love Penny Black images and always use a few each year, I also love this pull card die designed by Karen Burniston (retired from her ECD days) My sentiment and banner are from Lawn Fawn one of my favourite companies this year.

Coffee Moustache

This week on CCEE Stampers we are asked to put a moustache on our cards.

 November is also known as Movember which is a time to celebrate and raise funds for male issues.
 For our challenge this month include a Moustache (Mo) on your card in some way.


I have been wanting to use this Thanks a Latte stamp set for Lawn Fawn for ages. It is kind of quirky to add faces to the cups, they looked so sweet. I coloured the images to match the designer paper in the background. It just so happened that I had a jar of shaker sequins on my desk waiting to be used, it has been so long since I have made a shaker card, I just love the way it turned out. With so much going on the front this inside looked rather plain so I just added the pop - up inside last minute.



Supplies: 
Lawn Fawn - Thanks a Latte stamp set
Stitched Hillside Backdrop.
Karen Burniston - 1011 - Katherine Label pop -up die
1054 - Crosshatch rectangle die

Snow Drift Blessings

Today we have another challenge hosted by Nicky for the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

For this challenge, I was trying to find ideas that I haven't seen in other challenges so. I thought that it would be fun to use a card that we had received from someone else as inspiration. It can be a handmade card or a store-bought card.

I went craft shopping with a friend the other day and purchased a few things. My friend commented that I happen to have a snow theme happening, so I just continued with the theme for today's card.

I created my with several die sets from Karen Burniston.
1064 - Christmas tress pop stand
1011 - Katherine Label pop-up
1006 - Nature Edges
1017 - Snowmen
 The sentiment is from the stampendous stamps set holiday expressions.







This is my inspiration card, I received it last year. You can following the link for more detailed information on how to make the original card here.
