We have a MAKE A SCENE Challenge for you starting today!

I stamped the Sheep and coloured it with Copics.I then cut out the scene with the Snowy Mountain dies, Double Pierced Hills Die, and trees from the Skating Rink Die Set.
The background paper is from the Mint Cocoa Kisses Paper Pad.

Its looking like Fall at Ninabrook!


Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying this Fall weather and Happy Thanksgiving!
I sure enjoy being up at the cottage and seeing all the fall colours and the beautiful trees!

I am back this month and my Ninabrook package was filled with gorgeous stuff from Simple Stories!
This time, I will be playing with the Vintage Blessings Papers and Embellishments,
 a wonderful collections of Fall themes.
One of the papers had amazing Cut-out Cards on it so I used that as my focus for my projects.
 They are very fast and easy to use!


For my first project, I wanted to make something for the Thanksgiving
 table so I made this paper Candle Holder. 
I cut the cardstock on my Cricut and then covered it with some of the patterned paper at the back for stability.
Then I added one of the Cut-out cards and backed it with cardstock and added in the flowers. Now its already for my candle! (Faux Candle of course because this is paper!)

Next I made some cards for you...

In this card, I layered patterned papers over vanilla cardstock. I then added a paper border, the paper flower and ribbon. The sentiment is a Cut-out card from one of the papers and I layered it with a sentiment sticker and finally a few pearls.

In this next card, I got out my sewing machine and decided to sew a border around the whole card to attach the patterned paper and lace doily. Loving those Cut-out cards, I added one which I had backed onto cardstock and then layered over lace and white ribbons. Finally, I attached a little key I had in my stash to finish it off. (Embellishment dots from Simple Stories)

In seeing this little Cut-out card, I thought why not make a wine tag! 
Perfect for Thanksgiving!
So I cut a tag out of Kraft cardstock, layered more of the patterned paper, added the lace and paper doily from my stash and then dyed the ribbon grey to match.
Of course I had to add some bling so more of the enamel dots went on!

  For my first card I used the stamp set called: Stocking Stuffers
This is an adorable set featuring Stocking filled with little guys!

I stamped the Stocking with our Black Olive Ink and then coloured the image with Copic markers. Then I used the Circle and Stitching Marks Die and cut it out. Then I used the Snowflake Panel die and cut out some cardstock and backed it with shiny silver paper.

Here is my second card using an adorable set called: Fleece Navidad
Really?! This is the CUTEST stamp set ever!!
I just adore these little sheep and the set was so much fun to colour and use in a scene!
I stamped and then coloured the Sheep with Copics and then cut him out using the matching dies. Then I used the new Stitched Hill Die, Tree Die and Skating Rink Die (on vellum) to create the background.
Everything was then layered over YNS Mint Cocoa Kisses Paper (NEW!), added the sentiment 
and some of the new Bling It On Gumdrops
