Your Next Stamp: Feature Day

Hello Everyone, hope you are all having a great start to your weekend!? I am here to share my Your Next Stamp Feature day creation with you all. This months theme is Winter/Christmas.
For my card, I used some of this months new release items.
I cut out all my cookies using the die set and then stamped them afterwards. I colored all my sweet little cookie confections in using my Spectrum Noirs. I stamped my sentiment on some vellum using Memento tuxedo black ink.
My card is actually made with two layers of white cardstock, the top piece measures at 3.5". I added some American Craft glitter tape behind it, to make it pop off the card base more.
This is pretty clean and simple from what I usually do but I think the outcome of it is cute!
Be sure to head on over to YNS blog to see what the other DT member and Guest created and leave a comment for your chance to win a stamps set of your choice.

Hello and Happy Tuesday my friends! Hope you are all having a great start to your week and getting ready for next weeks festivities :)

I decided to take a different approach on coloring and thought it would nice to do a  MONOCHROMATIC look and add pops of color.
I really like the way it turned out and feel that it really pops off the card this way, what do you think, yay or nay!?

Tag, You're it with Timeless Twine

Hello everyone, It's design team day for me over at the Timeless Twine Blog. Can you believe Christmas only about a month away!? I am hoping to finish up the rest of my Christmas shopping for my peanut in these next two weeks. I figured this year I would make my own tags for his presents, so that's the project I will be sharing with you all today. I only have three made so far, so those will be the three I will share :)
This project was super simple in being, all I did was stamp, color and add some fun Timeless Twine.
Twine Colors used:
SALE - Simply White Twine by Timeless Twine - 1 Spool (160 Yards)SALE - Cherry Red Bakers Twine by Timeless Twine - 1 Spool (160 Yards)SALE - NEW Aqua and Lime Green Bakers Twine by Timeless Twine - Key Lime SorbetChristmas Bakers Twine Party Pack by Timeless Twine
All my stamps are by Peachy Keen, I wanted to keep the tags fun and whimsical since there will be going on my 3 year old's presents.
I hope this will all inspire you to try and make some of your own tags this year, instead of buying them from the store. They are fun, easy and cheap to make and they are sure to put a smile on
any one's face!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!!
