On the 9th Day of Christmas... my true love gave to me...
... a tiny little paper pieced sleigh.
Come and check out the myStamp BOX blog today to see what I placed this cute little paper pieced sleigh from the "Ho Ho Ho" stamp set on.
I simply adore all of my beautifully ornate Flourishes stamps sets so I chose this beautiful floral bouquet to stamp and colour as my focal image.
supplies: stamps, Flourishes; die cut shapes, Spellbinder's; inks, Memento, Ranger, Copic; patterned papers, BasicGrey; pearls, Hero Arts; cardstock, Bazzill, Gina K. Designs; embossing folder, Sizzix; other, thread.
Here's a close up of the layered pieces of die cut shapes by Spellbinder's and the embossed black cardstock...
I also decorated the inside too...
I sure hope she'll like it....
For my layout, I started off by stamping a dark green tree and then masking it off to stamp a lightly lighter green tree behind it. The masking and layering creates a more realistic scene with some trees being in the foreground versus the back ground.
For this page I used the WeScrap December kit, "Winter Bliss". I just adore the colour palette of blues, purples and greens!
To add a little touch of shimmer, I used the Glaze pen in the kit to highlight some of the details on my stamped trees.
Here's a sneak peek of one of my creations with this awesome kit! You can see all the iTeam creations here in the Winter Bliss Gallery.

It's Sunday and I'm playing along with the layout ladies over at Mission to Create this week! This week's concepts are:
Jocie - use newspaper
Nicole - stitch a frame around photo(s)
Vanessa - use pearls or something creamy white
Tonya - red, aqua, pink and orange
Here's my layout using all five concepts...
For my title I traced the circle on some scraps of white cardstock and then I stamped each individual letter from my myStamp BOX alphabet stamp set, "Funky Alphabet" along the curve. Once stamped, I cut around the images and then used my Copic airbrush to colour them with an orange and pink Copic. I used my Sakura glaze pen to add a bit of polish to the letters!
If you peak through the circle, you can see I also stamped the date using my "Mini Alpha" stamp set. I used the "20" on the printed page as part of my date: November 20. All the pretty snowflakes are part of the "Let It Snow" stamp set.
Come and join the Mission to Create team for your chance to win our prize package for this month.
I had the honour of guest designing with Mel's "Hand-in-Hand" stamp set. This set is so versatile. It features a variety of whimsical hand images and coordinating greetings and sentiments.
A Friend Is...
Supplies: stamps, Gina K. Designs (Hand in Hand, Very Merry Christmas); cardstock, Gina K. Designs, Bazzill; glitter glue, inks, Ranger; ink, Copic, Memento, Versamark; flowers, Prima; embossed tag, Provocraft; die cut circles, Spellbinder's; pearls, Hero Arts; other, thread, ribbon.
For my card I first die cut and embossed a simple circle of white Gina K. Designs "Pure Luxury" cardstock and stamped my hands using a beige Memento ink. I coloured my image using my Copic markers.
To make my green back ground, I used some other Gina K. stamps called A Very Merry Christmas to stamp in Versamark and then clear embossing powder was applied and heat set. I rubbed some glorious Distress Inks over it to reveal the embossed design.
I dry embossed a tag using a Provocraft embossing folder and then inked and distressed the edges. The sentiment is from Melanie's "Hand in Hand" stamp set as well.
Come and join me on Melanie's blog and just check out some of her incredible stamps and creations! This card is being featured on her blog today!

supplies: stamps, Flourishes, Hero Arts; cardstock, Bo Bunny; embossing folder, Cuttlebug; patterned paper, Echo Park; ink, Ranger, Stampin' Up!; die cut shapes, Spellbinder's; other, ribbon, thread.
