Warm Cocoa Wishes

Hi everyone!  The temps are really starting to fall where I live and they are even saying that there is a chance of some wet snow at the end of the week- yikes!  I must say that I do not like snow, but I sure love snowflake and snowmen stamps.  Today I am sharing a card I made with Sweet N Sassy stamps newest snowman set- Snowman Soup.

I colored the adorable snowman with copics (BG70, 72, 75, 78, C1, N0, R24, 27, 29, 89), added some sparkle to the marshmallows (which is not showing well in the photo) with a spica clear glitter pen, some stickles to the trim of the hat and gloves, and finished by accenting with rhinestones on the hat and in the scallops.  I used the scallop border die for the border and the circle from the mini tag die set for the sentiment.  The mug is paper pieced- so fun!  The papers are from My Minds Eye Winter Wonderland collection.

Here is a closer look at the snowman

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope that you have enjoyed my card.  I do want to mention that if you like this super cute stamp set that you may want to pick it up as it is very limited in quantity right now which I found out when I went to add the link.

DT favorites- Nature Silhouettes 2

This week from October 4- October 10, Sweet N Sassy stamps is featuring the DT's favorite stamp sets and they are 20% off this week only while supplies last.   Today we are featuring Landscape Silhouettes and Nature Silhouettes 2.

I chose Nature Silhouettes 2 as one of my favorite sets.  I am sharing a note card set that I made with the set with you today.

First picture shows how my note folder looks before it is folded and adhered.  You can see the measurements on the scoring board.  I used an 8.5x11 sheet of sturdy card stock.

This cardholder holds 5 cards and envelopes.  Here is a peek at the 5 different cards I created.  

This is a closer look at one of the cards.  I colored with markers on my stamp before stamping the flowers and added stickles to the tips of the flowers, which is not showing well in the photo.

 A look at the inside with the cards in it.

Here is a look at the outside of the note card holder.

Autumn CAS

I really do the love the fall!  Some of the leaves are starting to change now and the air is cool and crisp. So, today I would like to share a autumn CAS card that I made for my mom's husband.

I used Leaf Silhouettes from Sweet N Sassy stamps and stamped them in some warm colors which work well for fall.  I scored lines behind my squares to create the look of a panel.  The layout is the sketch on SCS from yesterday.

I would like to enter my card in the Addicted to CAS challenge this week which is autumn/fall.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you are having a beautiful day to enjoy just like it is here where I am.
