Spirited Reindeer

And now, the last Christmas card of the season.  We had fun making wine cork reindeer ornaments but we used pipe cleaners for the antlers.  Then I found this stamp set and had to make a card using it!
This reindeer is full of holiday spirits!!

Wishing you a Happy New Year and may 2019 be a creative year for you!!

Party Time Mail Art

Wait a minute Mister Postman...I have some mail art for you to deliver!!  Lately videos featuring mail art has caught my interest.  I thought it would be fun to try it out a little bit more.

At the end of the year, a box is started with all the birthday cards I will send out for the year.  The address is put on the envelope so once the card is made it is ready to go!  This keeps me on track so the birthday does not sneak past!

The envelope says party all over it, I will finish addressing it later

A little faux stitching was used to add some detail to the address area.

You Are Enough

Hi stamping friends!  Have you had a chance to play along with us?  This is the last challenge for 2018 and then we move forward to a new year of challenges!

Using a larger card base, the sheep are saying it all!  The pink card stock was embossed with white hearts and the sentiment was embossed in black.  The tan card stock was stamped with brown ink.  A heart was cut out through both pieces.  Sheep were embossed and fussy cut and placed inside the cut out heart.  Some twine was wrapped around and the piece was glued to white card stock.

Thank you for spending your year with STAMPlorations and playing along with the challenges.  See you next year!  Have a great holiday season with your families!

Winter Wonderland

Is there anything that says winter wonderland more than a snowman?  He is paired with some bright stripes and some stars.  This little tag should spread cheer to whom ever sees it!

Be The Exception

Hi stamping friends!  Are you ready for the new challenge at STAMPlorations?

Using my favorite color combo, red, black and white today.  These cute little sheep are all flocked together but one is the exception!  I stamped and embossed it in red.  Then I stamped and embossed alll the other sheep in black.  The sentiment added so much to this card design!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments.

Coffee Meow

I have a crazy cat that meows insistantly as I walk by the coffee pot.  I started making her a dish of coffee every day and adding cream to it.  One day I was out of coffee and just gave her the cream.  Turns out, it was just the cream she liked!!  I know, bad punch line but I still giggled!!

Now isn't that just the cat's meow!!  Thanks for stopping by!
