Hi, thanks for peeking in today. I was asked by a boss at work to make some
place cards for her Mother In Law as a fun little Christmas Gift.
I was told that a group of gals which includes her Mother In Law have been getting together on a regular basis for many years just for fun, outings and card games :)
This fun stamp set from Art Impressions came to mind and this is what I came up with!
Each Place card is personalized, I made one extra without a name incase there's an extra guest to
join the group!
The sun is pop dotted for added dimension and a touch of glossy accents were also added!
Here's the back's of the cards, I added some hot pink twine, gems and a fun sentiment. The place cards are also heightened by added beads that were hot glued to the base and used as feet for a more finished look!
Here's the gift box!
I enjoyed making this little set and I truly hope the Gals like them :)
I coloured up the image with Copics. Used a navy marker for the sky and added snowflakes using a sharpie marker. The scene is set in a snowy window, added a banner flag along with ribbon, sentiment banner and snowy details too.
Thanks for peeking!!
Looking forward to seeing your creation in this months challenge :)
I coloured up the image with Copics. Fussy cut and mounted the image on pop dots. Lots of red and green in this card along with touches of gold. The sentiment is die cut and gold Stickles were also added for some glittery detail.
Every year I pick one of the pumpkin carvings from the Cricut Cartridge to use for Halloween. This year I decided on this creepy hand
Actually to back up just a bit I wasn't going to bother carving a pumpkin this year. I'm super busy and working 6 days a week extended hours every day. We don't really get a lot of kids anywhere from 1 to I think 7 kids at the most. We live outside of the subdivision so the kids don't bother walking all the way down the street for a few houses.
Last night my Husband said we should still decorate and carve the pumpkin even if it is for one kid that may be disappointed if the arrived and we had nothing for them. So I agreed and carved this pumpkin up.
My first two kids arrived and the one little guy was soooo excited when he saw the pumpkin and ask me if I carved it!!!
Well..... I'm over the moon and so glad I'm shelling out this year!
..and so far 5 kids have knocked on the door!! woot woot :D !!!
So here's the stencil, cut with the Cricut pumpkin carvings!
I use a sharpie marker and trace around it.
Carved out the negative space and then use a scrubbie to remove any excess marker.
I am from Toronto Canada and I love the simple things in life. The garden, rubber stamping, scrapbooking, old things, pyrex and Fiestaware. I am married to my best friend and we have 2 cats. My idea of a Vacation is relaxing at home working on small projects (boring I know), but I love it!
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit!
