Bo Bunny Holly Jolly - Red Santa

Hi everyone, wow our holiday weekend sure went by quickly didn't it?  My folks are still here visiting from Chicago and we've been having a great time.  It's hard knowing they'll be leaving to head home in a few days.  So, we make the most of our time together :)

I've been working on a new Santa, building my christmas card collection.  I purchased this from my friend Deana Benson's shop on Etsy, DesignCreativeBling.  I'll link her shop here, she's got a nice assortment of lovely crafty things, including this awesome Santa by Bo Bunny!

I've decided I'm going to color 4 of him, so I've got my red Santa finished, and I'm working on the next 3 in different colors.  Stay tuned for more!

Thanks for stopping by today, I love to read your comments!

Here's a list of great products I've used to make this card:

Scribbles Designs #872 Woodland Santa

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you're here in the U.S.  So it's time to start breaking out all things Christmas.  I'm absolutely loving this digital Woodland Santa image by Scribbles Designs.  Isn't he gorgeous?  

I really wanted to color him in non-traditional colors, so I chose a rich purple.  For my sentiment, I added this gorgeous new Believe die by SimonSaysStamp.  I'll link all the product I used below.  Thanks so much for stopping, check out this digi and many more over at Scribbles Designs!

Kat Scrapiness Rope Rectangle Dies  (purple layer)

People ask me all the time, what kind of white paper do I use for Copic Coloring.  I prefer the Hammermill Color Copy Digital Cover 80# and I order it from Amazon, it's priced great, my Copics blend perfectly and it's bright white as opposed to the grey tint some blending papers have.  But best of all is the price and it feeds through my printer perfectly when I print digis.  Here's a link if you'd like to order:

Paper Piecing a Gina Marie Designs Cute Snowman!

Ok, so this one was a little bit more challenging, lots of snipping to piece all these bits of paper.  But, it's all fun and seeing the results, I'm quite pleased!

This is a new die by Gina Marie Designs "Cute Snowman".  I also used a few of her older dies to create this scene, I'll link them all below!  Thanks for stopping :)

Gina Marie Designs Give Thanks

Hi everyone, popping on with a quick card that I made using this beautiful "Give Thanks" die by Gina Marie Designs that I picked up in the Kat Scrappiness shop.  

I recently purchased this used stamp set by Stampin Up from someone.  I thought the leaves were so gorgeous! I stamped them out on Bristol Watercolor paper and colored them with distress inks of various fall colors.

Once dry, I mounted on copper glitter paper and then gave this gorgeous die cut a prominent place on the card front.  I cut it out in both cream and brown to accent it.

Thanks for stopping, have a great day!

Kat Scrappiness and Gina Marie Designs Dies for Fall/Harvest Time

Hi everyone, happy November.  Wow, I cannot believe we've sped through 2016 as quickly as we have.  So down here in South Carolina, it's still summer, but I'm pretending that it's fall.  I so badly miss the gorgeous colors of the north during this season. 

So today I've got some new products to show you that are in the Kat Scrappiness shop, here's a link if you'd like to pop over there and do a little shopping! 

If you haven't tried #GinaMarieDesigns dies, both the Slash Stitch and these Patterned Pumpkins are some of new my favs.  Kat carries a large selection of Gina's dies, so make sure to check that out.

I'm very happy to finally have a nice Thanksgiving sentiments stamp set, these stamp so lovely.  And, you really need to try these Fabrika enamel, glass and glitter drops.  Kat has a hard time keeping them stocked, they just fly off the shelf. I love how they keep their shape and dry super hard.  No more smooshed dots!

 I've linked the products used below! Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you've enjoyed my harvest/fall project!
