It’s been a busy few weeks for me – I have had three very successful workshops that featured a card made with the Home For Christmas designer series paper from Stampin Up. I LOVED the vintage retro look of the pattered paper and I knew I had to use the paper in a workshop! The fun sentiment was stamped with the Cozy Christmas stamp set, once in Real Red, then again in Mossy Meadow. I cut the ‘season’ word out of the first stamped image then adhered it to the mossy meadow image using some dimensionals after I punched the mossy meadow image out using the 2.5″ circle punch and finally attached that to the doily using my tombow.
I created tags based on a pin I found, and two cards: this is my favorite card that we made. I was so happy with how it turned out that I will be using these for my Christmas card list this year too 😛

I made a Christmas shaker card! I have tried to make shaker cards before, and have only had a few successes – but the Ready Set Snow shaker add on from Lawn Fawn took all the guess work out of the construction of the shaker card & all I needed to do was stamp, color and assemble. When I first got this add on die set I was, admittedly betwixt as to how it actually worked.. But once I saw the How To video it all came together.
This card is case’d from the video – I always try and make original card designs, but I tried twice to make a background I loved, and they both turned out, well…. meh. It was getting late & I really wanted to finish the project so I created this cute little guy. I stamped & colored the penguin and his Santa hat from the Toboggan Together stamp set, then die cut him out. I used the snowy sky background die from the Ready Set Snow Shaker Add on dies, then blended some Broken China & Tumbled Glass Tim Holtz distress inks along the top into the middle to give the piece some added dimension.
When it came time to assemble my card, I chose to use two layers of standard fun foam to make sure there was ample room for the sequins and seed beads to move around. I found that the cupped sequins I had needed a little more than one layer.
Now that I have had time to play with this, I am already thinking of the many other things I can create with this set!
