Hedgehogs, so cute...

Starting with a white card stock base card I added a layer of black, then a layer of the rusty brown to match my hedgehog.
The main piece is done by stamping the hedgehog,the star and the verse all from Penny Black "the wonder" using StazOn jet black ink on the main piece then coloring the hedgehog with a  Prisma color pencil.
Now yo stamp the star and hedgehog onto other paper and trim them out to make a mask.
I also made a mask to look like snow on the ground.
Place your masks on the card and sponge Distress ink hickory smoke for the night sky.
Remove your masks and use the paper edge distresser around this top piece then tape it to the front of your card.

Simple with a tip...

This card is extremely simple because the challenge called for "space".


I started with a white card stock base card and corner rounded two opposite corners.
Using Paper Smooches "Christmas Sampler" I stamped the verse with StazOn jet black ink.
Over to the Big Kick with some red and green card stock pieces and my Paper Smooches "Holly" die to die cut the holly.

Here's the tip...
When you are cutting small pieces and you want to cut multiples without running back and forth...use a piece of painters tape to pull the die cut piece out of the die.
Then you can put multiples of little things on the tape and they won't get lost!
I used glue dots to place the holly on the card for a bit of dimension.

Have yourself a ginger little Christmas...


Isn't it great when you find just the right paper for a card?
That's how I felt about this double sided paper that I had in my stash.
Gingerbread people on one side and plaid on the other.
 I used the sketch challenge to place the papers then die cut the gingerbread man from Paper Smooches "Gingerbread House" die set.
After attaching the little guy I stamped the verse from Paper Smooches "Christmas Sampler"set on the card front using Distress Ink brushed corduroy!

Hopefully I made it...

Got up this morning to start making cards for the Paper Smooches challenge and found another so I will try and get this in quickly.

I started with a white card stock base card and cut a mask using a die from Paper Smooches "Borders 1" then sponged the swirling sky for a dimensional look using Distress Ink faded jeans.

Then it was off to the Bigkick to die cut multiples of snowballs from Paper Smooches "Holly" set, gingerbread house & men from Paper Smooches "Gingerbread House", birds from Paper Smooches "Seasonal Tree" and snow mound from Paper Smooches "Borders 1".
Now to the gluing...The house and accessories done with glue dots and the gingerbread men done with foam tape.
Finally the  verse is from Paper Smooches "Christmas Sampler" and stamped using Distress Ink candied apple.

Off to post...

It's finally getting chilly here...

This little cutie came from MFT Black Friday sale.
I started with a black card stock base card and placed a layer of red snowfall patterned paper on it.
Using my nested circle dies I cut the grey snowfall patterned paper using the white edge so I could stamp the verse from MFT "BB Beast Friends" set using StazOn jet black ink.
 I used the next largest circle die to cut the black card stock outline to layer behind the grey.
I stamped the Yeti from the same set on white card stock and colored him using colored pencils.
I die cut him out using the MFT coordinating dies as well as 3 white card stock trees and glue dotted them all to the front!

I just love this set and will be using I more this year I'm sure!
