Holiday Homes

Posted on

There’s no denying this has been one of my FAVORITE stamp sets this season, the Holiday Home Stamp Set with the coordinating Homemade Holiday Framelits Dies.

This card came about so quickly and easily all thanks to the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper I had already cut on the table. The rest simply “evolved” from that! 🙂

Homey Halloween Thank You

Posted on

Okay, okay, I promise this will be the last time this month I use the Homemade Holiday Framelits but I just HAD to show another use for the tall skinny house. You know the one, it looks like this.

Holiday Home - JIF

Well, chop off the chimney and voila, you have an arrow. All that’s required is a one inch scrap of cardstock or DSP and you have a wonderful arrow!

This is a card the clever-clots at Stampin’ Up! designed. Instead of using any Halloween DSP I chose instead to simply tart up the arrows with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set… naturally. The spider is courtesy of the Holiday Home Stamp Set whilst thank you comes from the Letterpress Winter Stamp Set.

Haunted Holiday Homemade

Posted on

The Holiday Homemade Bundle has quickly become a VERY firm favorite of mine so when I saw this basic design created by Stampin’ Up!, I knew I had to make it mine.

The scraps of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and Elegant Eggplant Cardstock have both been stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in their corresponding Classic Ink Color.

The house has been die-cut from the Crumb Cake Cardstock Angled Tag then black cardstock placed behind the negative space. The little stamps of bats, ghost and pumpkin are from the Holiday Home Stamp Set. The 1/4″ Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon finishing the card off nicely!

Migraine Monday, oops, MOJO MONDAY!

Posted on

Sorry. I woke Friday morning with a throbbing head which is still hurting today. So apart from a doctor’s appointment which was already scheduled for that day, then dropping off Boy Child at a party on Saturday, I’ve pretty much been both PJ and bed bound.

My head is still not 100% but I daresay that has something more to do today with the salmon smoking which took place in our kitchen last night. The salmon tastes divine but the smoke residue still lingering in the air is doing absolutely NOTHING for my head.

Anyways, enough of my pity-party. With Canadian Thanksgiving being celebrated next month this is my card for today’s Mojo Monday sketch.

Mojo361 - Mingle All The Way - JIF

There was just SO MUCH white space on this weeks sketch which didn’t help my head at all. This is the MOJO MONDAY sketch for today. As you can see, not much deviation from the original at ALL today on my part.

Mojo 361 Sketch!

Of late I’ve rediscovered Sahara Sand Cardstock so with this as base I added a pattern from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack in darker tones. Then added a much lighter pattern from the Moonlight DSP Stack. Some Pumpkin Pie Chevron Ribbon completing the base.

For my square on the right I went with a base of Early Espresso Cardstock with Tangelo Twist Cardstock on top of that. First I stamped, also in Tangelo Twist Classic Ink, two of the houses from the Holiday Home Stamp Set, then on top of that stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink a stamp from the Mingle All the Way Stamp Set. Finishing off the square with stamped leaves also from the Holiday Home Stamp Set.

With Thanksgiving in mind, I chose to stamp two of the feathers from the Four Feathers Stamp Set. The larger in Early Espresso Classic Ink on Early Espresso Cardstock, the smaller feather in Soft Suede Classic Ink on Soft Suede Cardstock. I then used the co-ordinating Feathers Framelits Dies to cut them. Sponging both with Crumb Cake Classic Ink before adhering.
