Peace on Earth, for Paradise of Stamps

Happy New Year Everyone

I have a card to share with you today for our challenge at 

Our first challenge of the year and it's an easy one, Anything goes


I found these cool Christmas blackboard labels during my last trip to Michaels
4 designs and a total of 24 in a pack, and at a cool 70% off 

I created my frame from a designer paper from Kaisercraft Base Coat
6 1/2 paper pack, mounted with foam for dimension


My Cardinal is from Altenew stamped on Neenah solra crest
and inked with Altenew inks using my Misti, then I die cut
I also stamped the branch from the set on my Kaisercraft paper
I added Memory Box Woodland branch die cut


The frame and the wood wall is mounted on foam
Hard to tell on the picture but the card has lots of dimension

Home for the Holidays GDT for Frilly and Funkie

I'm very excited and honored to share with you today my creation 
as GDT for the challenge at Frilly and Funkie 

The theme is Home decor and what better then to have
 an Advent calendar for the occasion


This Calendar is creating with all of Tim Holtz products except for the skies
the small sled, and the knobs.


I started with the Matchbox die and Kraft paper for all the drawers. 
The designer paper is from his Seasonal 12 x 12 paper stash


For the Sled and the deer I used Nostalgic Kraft Core 
Metallic paper for the dimensional star die


Wreath is made using the mini Holiday greens die


No dies for the gift bags and gifts, I used my score pad
and after a few attempts got the correct sizes


For the knobs, I used corsage pins, cut them to the correct length
and added a rubber earring backing. 
 I toned them down with Mushroom Alcohol ink 
I also added a clear sequin for that extra sparkle


I used Tissue paper, collage glue and lots of clear glass crystal 
for the perfect snow effect


Here is a look with drawers open


I'm so very pleased with my Calendar and it looks awesome
on my mantle

Winter for Paradise of Stamps

December 1st and a New challenge at Paradise of Stamps
Our theme for this challenge is Winter with an option of
adding a background with text


For my DT card, I used Wellington Christmas papers its a 6x6 paper pack
some lace, ribbon and cheese cloth


My image is a Whipper Snapper stamp called A Snowman's Best Friend
colored with Copics, I'm sorry I did not right the colors down


The sled is one of my favorites, its a die from Memory Box
I added multiple layers, inked with distress inks and then to add 
some texture I heat embossed the planks with Frosted Crystal embossing powder
it gives it a kind of granular texture


I used Sizzix Woodland thinlit die for the trees
Cut twice using some double sided tape and adding glitter
