Hi all!  Today I have a card for a bunch of challenges:


I used the image Little Santa from Aurora Wings and created a sentiment using PTI’s Simple Alphabet set.  He was colored entirely with Copic markers and I used a Spellbinders die to finish off the card.

This is for the following challenges:

I hope you like it and TFL!

WMS December PJ Party, Post #5

Hi all!  Ok, this is my last project for the Pajama Party.  This is for Challenge #4 – sketch:
And here’s my card:
Labels4 6

I used 3 different WMS sets for this card: Very Vintage Labels No. 4 (frame), Gift Card It (sentiment), and Vintage Circles, Small (tree).

Here’s how I made the tree – I stamped and image from Vintage Circles onto striped green paper and cut it out with a petite scalloped circle die.  Then I cut it up so I had a triangle shape, plus a little bit extra on each side.  I folded the extra bits to the back and taped them together, then I glued in a little scrap of brown cardstock for the trunk.  I hope you like it and TFL!

Hi all!  Here’s my 4th project for the Pajama Party (this is for Challenge #3 - Old Pajamas):
Once again, I used the Very Vintage Christmas stamp set (can you tell I just love this set?!).  I cut a panel from kraft cardstock with my Zing and stamped it with the tag image in white ink.  I also stamped a sentiment from the same set.  I added a bow and set it aside. 
Next I die cut a white cardstock panel and stamped it all over with the snowflake from the set in light blue ink.  Then I put all the pieces together to make my card.
The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches.  This is also for Little Red Wagon – So Flaky.  I hope you like it and TFL!

WMS December PJ Party, Post #3


Hi all!  I’m back with another PJ Party post.  This is another entry for Challenge #2 – Make an ornament:


I used Very Vintage Christmas again, but decided to showcase my 2 boys’ school pictures.  I cut out the frame shape with my Zing and stamped and embossed with gold.  I stamped a little tag with 2014 and added a bow on top.  I hope you like it and TFL!

WMS December PJ Party, Post #2


Here’s a project for Challenge #2 for the Pajama Party – Make a Tree Ornament:


I used Very Vintage Christmas for the sentiment, leaves and berries.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink on white cardstock and embossed with gold EP, then cut out with a circle die.  I stamped a ton of the 2 different leaves and colored them with Copics.  Then I fussy cut them all out and put them off to the side. 

I used 2 circle dies to cut a piece of thin chipboard to make a circular frame and glued the leaves to it to make the wreath.  I then stamped the berry cluster 3 times, colored with Copics, and fussy cut out.  I added a bow of May Arts ribbon and a hanging string of rustic twine.  BTW – you can’t tell, but I adhered the wreath to the sentiment with foam dots for dimension.  I hope you like it and TFL!

WMS December PJ Party, Post #1


Hi all!  Today is the Waltzingmouse December Pajama Party – yay!  So I’m going to be putting up a series of posts for it – hope you don’t mind! Winking smile

This is for Challenge #1 – 3D Christmas tree. 


I used the Large Tree dies from Some Assembly Required.  I stamped a whole sheet of vellum with the snowflake from Very Vintage Christmas, then die cut all the tree pieces from the sheet.  I assembled according to the instructions and made the box, also according to the instructions.  I stamped a sentiment from Very Vintage Christmas on the box and embossed in white and stuck a battery powered tea light candle inside.  I hope you like it and TFL!
