Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Day 5

Saturday, November 22, 2014

I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that
will hang on my kitchen wall.

For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my previous tags & cards here.)

For Day 5's tag, I used my  Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duos 1 tag die with
some Pink Paislee patterned paper.


I kept this one super simple and just added a diecut number
(diecut from some smokey shadow cardstock & PTI`s Book Print number die.)

I made my card using some coordinating patterned paper.

 
I trimmed a piece of Pink Paislee patterned paper and layered it over my red cardstock base.
I stamped my sentiment (from Reverse Confetti's Seasonal Sentiments) on a strip of white
cardstock and diecut the end using the largest tag from Tag Me.
 
And before I go, I just wanted to let you know that I have a treat bag
and tag on the Chickaniddy Blog today, if you'd like to check it out.

CAS(E) This Sketch #101

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Today, I have four cards to share for CAS(E) This Sketch #104,
which was designed by N@ Ali:



I decided to use a stamp set that I'd borrowed from my friend, Susan,
to make my card -- Wplus9's Woodland Wreaths.
And then, before I knew it, I'd made four cards using the sketch & this set.


The first one I made using a white cardstock background, as well as my Simple Stripes IP from PTI.
I added a few Wplus9 Merry & Bright pine boughs and pinecones.


This second one was stamped on kraft & I impressed it with PTI's Bookprint IP.
I added some buttons & twine to finish it off.


My third card was stamped on vintage cream cardstock and
I added some of the fruit & the bird from the stamp set.
I impressed this one with PTI's Woodgrain IP.


And lastly, I made a birthday card with the wreath.
I really like these colours together.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
This is a two week sketch (in honour of the US Thanksgiving), so
you have until Thursday, December 4th to link up your card.

Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Day 4

Sunday, November 16, 2014


I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that
will hang on my kitchen wall.

For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my previous tags & cards here.)

For Day 4's tag, I used the PTI's Shaker Shapes: Star dies with
some Simple Stories Holly Jolly patterned paper.


I diecut the stitched star die from some stamper's select white cardstock
and the 4 from some smokey shadow cardstock using PTI's Book Print Number dies.
I diecut the snowflake from some music note paper using the largest snowflake from
Wplus9's Snowflake Trio Dies and stitched a button over top.

For my coordinating card, I used the same patterned paper & Shaker Shapes die.


For the base of my card, I used some Bazzill Basics Guacamole cardstock, which I also used for the stitched star diecut.
I diecut the banner using some Bazzill Basics Taffy and the banner die from PTI's
MIM Tinsel & Tags kit, on which I stamped using the same banner (in soft stone) 
and the sentiment (also from the Tinsel & Tags stamp set.)
I ran the Bazzill Basics Marshmallow cardstock through my diecutting machine 
with my We R Memory Keepers wood grain embossing folder.
A few Pretty Pink Posh wooden stars finish it off.
