'Twas the night before Christmas.....

Welcome OCS and HH fans;

I don't know about you, but I am so so not ready for Santa popping down the chimneys a month today.  Yes, you read right -- Christmas Eve will soon be upon us.

My most favourite story/poem is "Twas the Night Before Christmas", and for today's post I have incorporated part of it, along with the adorable stamp from High Hopes Stamps called "Filled Stocking".  The wording and stockings are from the "Twas the Night Before Christmas" paper collection from Echo Park.

Supplies used:
Do try and find some time to ink up your favourite stamp and play along in our Christmas/Winter Fun Challenge.  We will love to see what you create.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

Hot Chocolate Season

We have had a couple blasts of winter where I live. You know....the cold biting wind and yes even lots of snow. So far it has melted away the next day but it is a reminder that winter is just around the corner.

This also means that hot chocolate and marshmallow season is already here. There is nothing like putting on a sweater and curling up under a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows. Bear-ly Warming Up from High Hopes has it right from what I can see.......

I decided to make Bear-ly Warming Up into a little gift package. I found a super easy to follow tutorial for this on the This Is Me Playing With Paper blog and made my single sided gift box. Then after colouring up this cutie I hand fussy cut him and added some sparkly Stickles to his mug. I made the sentiment using my computer printed it off and voila! Some ribbon and a few sparkly gumdrops finish off my gift. 
If you're looking for me....I will be curled up under a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate <wink>

Snowy's Cup!

Hi OCS Fans!
It's Tuesday so that means you can find me over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs sharing the cards I made. Today's cards feature the adorable "Snowy's Cup" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps!

I love this stamp because you can stamp a sentiment on the middle of the cup! I used the "Dot warm Winter Wishes" sentiment to do just that!
On the inside I used the "Dot Snowman Melts" sentiment!
My paper is from the Doodlebug Polar Pals 6x6 collection, an oldie but still one of my favourite paper collections! I used my Brother Cut N Scan to cut around my image and then popped it up with foam squares for added dimension. I struggled with this layout, I wanted to add more of something but couldn't decide what! Then my mom appeared in my ear saying "less is more" lol so I decided to just leave it like it is! Sometimes Mom is right LOL!

It's hard to see but there is Glossy accents on the nose and buttons, and Spectrum Noir Glitter pen on the purple areas and the red stripes of the candy cane.
Copics Used:
C1, C6, C8, YR04, R24, R27, R29
V12, V15, V17, B23, B26, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG18

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

Winter Kitty Christmas

Did you see the new "Winter Fun" release from High Hopes yesterday?!? If you haven't - be sure to check it out! 
One of the oh so cute new release stamps was this cutie "Winter Kitty". If you are a cat lover or have a cat lover in your life, then this a stamp you will want in your collection!

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out using a circle die. I added Liquid Applique to the hat and scarf for some texture. I found out the hard way, you have to completely dry/puff up the applique with your heat gun - if there are any spots that are still wet and you run it through a die cutting machine ......well let's just say it's a mess - lesson learned - die cut then add liquid applique. After I was set (the second time), I added my stamp to paper from Simple Stories and added some ribbon and a bow. Some photo corners and gumdrops finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Winter Kitty - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Meowy Christmas Saying - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Cozy Christmas - Simple Stories
Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, classic circle die - Spellbinders, Fiskars circle cutter, liquid applique, Be Creative Tape (3 mm), Celebrate It ribbon, Holly Berry Red gumdrops - YNS

Spectrum Noir Markers: PP1 PP3 PP5 TN3 TN6 TN7 CT2 CR7 CR11 DR6 CG4 DG3 JG6

Tall Country Snowman!

Hello and Welcome!
Thanks for stopping by today! I love snowmen and this "Tall Country Snowman" from High Hopes Stamps is one of my favourites! I love the country feel to him and the larger size makes a nice tall card as seen below!
I stamped my image onto Copic XPress-it paper and coloured it in with my Copic Sketch Markers. Then using a FishTail Flag die I cut him out! I decided to use papers from the Echo Park I Love Winter 6x6 collection! It's hard to see in the picture but there is Spectrum Noir Glitter pen added to the checkered parts and stars on the image.  I used the HH "Brr" sentiment on the front.

Here's the inside of my card using the HH " Work of Art" sentiment.
Copics Used:
R22, R24, R27, R29
B000, B52, B93, B95, B97
