Its Hustling at Ninabrook!!!

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying this fast approaching Holiday Season!!

I am back this month and my Ninabrook package was filled with gorgeous stuff from Fancy Pants!
This time, I will be playing with the Holiday Hustle Papers and Embellishments,
 a wonderful collections of Holiday and Black and White themes.

For my first card I layered a bunch of the gorgeous patterned papers together and then added a little banner which the bottoms are a part of the FP embellishments. And did you see the cute little bow button! (That's FP too!)

Next I used a Spellbinders die to create a Poinsettia and put it on some of the
Merry Holly Days paper.  
Did you know that Ninabrook has a bunch of awesome Spellbinders dies?
Seeing that Christmas is coming, I always need tags.... so I made one using one of the great tags from the FP ephemera. I also layered a button by putting a Gumdrops from Your Next Stamp on it!
(Ninabrook sells these!)
 Lastly, I created a cute little treat box for you! This gorgeous FP paper was perfect for the base and I used another one of the tags from the FP collection.

Merry Christmas Coffee!

And for my final card of the Hop....
I used a Paper Pad by American Crafts called Hot Cocoa! This paper pad is
one of my favourites because it has all coffee themed things including kraft paper.
I layered some of the patterned papers and one of the cut outs. Then I used an organza ribbon
from my stash.

This has been such a fun hop and I really appreciate all the work everyone does for this Hop and the generous sponsors! Also to all the people who post such sweet comments, thank you!!
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and special New Year!

Bear and Bird coffee!

Today I made a card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and used a stamps set from
Waffle Flower! It has the cutest little Bear and Bird with a coffee cup!
I stamped the images with Memento Ink and coloured them with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut out the Hello and layered everything on some patterned papers from my stash bin.

Thanks for looking!

Christmas Card

Good Morning and welcome to my 12 Days of Christmas Card series where I will showcase some of the cards I have made for Christmas featuring some of my favourite new (and maybe old) stamp sets and dies.

For Day Five, I didn't use a Christmas stamp but altered it for what I needed it for....a Christmas Card for my Girls Highland Dance teacher!

This is Ainsley the Scottish Dancer from Your Next Stamp. I stamped her and coloured her with Copic markers and then I paper pieced her skirt with some tartan paper.

Thanks for looking and come back tomorrow to see Day Six!
