A Christmas Shaker Deer

 It's Saturday and time for my post for
Just Us Girls and for her first post 
Elizabeth has chosen
 Shakers for our Trend Week.

We all have cards that we tend to only do
on rare occasions and shaker cards are one of mine
but a challenge is good to get your creative juices
working in a different direction.
Thanks Elizabeth for doing just that.
I do love the ARTplorations Deer Die and 
thought he would be a good character here.
I adhered some tartan paper to my white card base.
Added acetate behind the white card front
and tan paper for the deer,
then laid out my STAMPlorations Shaker Blends
with other bits that seem to have disappeared
 adding mounting tape to seal. After adhering that 
I found I didn't have enough sequins but
luckily I managed to pull the bottom apart and
add more. Off course I had to add splatters,
 a few more sequins and finish with an eye
for my deer and sentiment from
Happy Little Stampers Christmas Joy.

Pop over and see how our September Guest Loll
and the Team had fun with and hopefully
you get to add yours to our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in

A Simply 'Cute' Taffy Teddy

 Time for our New Challenge over at
and choosing our Theme is
Sistah Aussie aNNie with a little twist to
Clean and Simple - it's Cute and Simple
so we need to see lots of 'cuties' on our simple cards.

I did have to look deep into my stamps and found
this tiny Taffy Teddy stamp that was a freebie a long long time ago.
Nice and simple with just a bit of blendng 
with watercolour pencils -  something I haven't used in ages.
Rummaged through to find some coloured and designer papers
to add as a background. 
The grey background has been embossed
with my good old Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and sanded.
Added some stamping/sentiment from the set
and I am done.
Pop over and see what 'cuties' my Sistah's created
and come have some fun with this super themed challenge.
Look forward to seeing you in the Gallery.

Till next time - 

'tis the Season

 It's time for our New Challenge over at
We have a different theme each month
and it's a Sketch this time.
Here is my make.

and here is a close up of the trees and sparkly snow.

I have been playing with one of my favourite
 Screamin' Banshee Black  Magical's Powder
lately and knew it would be just right for
a bleak but snowy Christmas Creation.
Blended nicely with Lindy's Black Orchid Silver Spray
I created my background using acetate.
Added snow with distress grit paste for texture
and sparkle from Stampendous Crystal Snow.
 Tim's Great Outdoors stamp set is a festive favourite of mine 
and have used that for the background trees and stars.
Die cut the front trees from the same colours
as the background and popped for dimension.
Finished with my sentiment.
Die cut the frame, attached to black card stock and
onto white base. 
Pop over and see what my Team Mates created
and come have some fun with us and
add yours to our Gallery.
Hope to see you there.
