Christmas Tin!

Wanted to have an adorable Christmas tin to store my cards, recipes and any other items! Here's my version of an altered lunchbox tin for Christmas.

Love that adorable reindeer!

Adhered matching paper to the inside lid!

I used Christmas paper from Christmas pad-Me & My Big Ideas, green ribbon, felt reindeer sticker, Darice gem sheets-gold and adhered paper with my ATG gun.

Yuletide Greetings Card

Started working on Christmas cards. I absolutely love this stamp. It's "To You and Yours" and is a Close To My Heart stamp set. Cardinals are my favorite bird so that is the main reason why I love this stamp set. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink so I could color in my image with ShinHan art alcohol markers.

I used 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" colonial white card bases with envelopes. I picked the music sheet B&T Duos Paper and Ruby cardstock. Put the silver shimmer trim. I stamped the cardinal image onto white daisy cardstock and colored with the ShinHan markers. I used R11 Carmine for cardinal, YR24 Marigold as his beak, R5 Cherry Pink for the berries, GY235 holly leaves, BR96 branch, B262 color of eyes and used the black to darken the black on the face. I used a spellbinder diecut. Stamped the greeting in Ruby ink. Place two gold bling gems in corner of card! I also stamped on the corner of the envelope with Ruby ink.

I stamped the inside of the card also with Ruby ink!

Well I hoped you like me card!
Until next time & Happy Stamping

Damask Divas Pathfinding Blog Hop

Happy October and Welcome to my blog!

If you came from the wonderful blog of Brenda Zimmerman Keepable Paper Creations, then you are in the right place. If you have jumped and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

So now onto my projects using Pathfinding paper pack!

I used the Workshop on the Go Pathfinding Cardmaking Kit (#G1083). I only made one of the three card designs.

I absolutely love this card kit! I used Chocolate (Z2111), Desert Sand (Z2118), Goldrush (Z2123) Inks. I wanted to try something different, so I decorated the envelope! Love how all of this has turned out.

Up close of the envelope!

Another item I made is the Fry Box from Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z3017)! I cut this out at 9" (p.27) using the first sheet of paper from Pathfinding paper pack (X7186B). I used glue dots to adhere this cute box together. Wrapped some Olive baker's twine around it before I adhered the acorn die cut shape using the 3D foam tape. Cut the acron out of Colonial White cardstock at 3 1/4" on pg.36 from Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. I sponged the edges with Chocolate and used Lagoon (Z2195) for the sentiment. I also tucked Brach's Autumn Mix candy in a treat bag inside!

This is my favorite time of the year with my favorite candy, which is Brach's Pumpkins! I love fall. Hope you liked all my projects. Just wanted something simple.
