I just love the new Snowfall Collection (6x6) by Bo Bunny. It is such beautiful paper. I used it to create this Christmas card for my sister and her husband. I used a Penny Black stamp from Winter Wonderland, did some colouring with Copics as well as paper-piecing with the Bo Bunny paper.
I originally planned to use several buttons, but felt that just one sparkly button was good. I coloured white ribbon with my Copic B97 to match with the papers.
I am entering this card in the Random Fun Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Have a good day!

Lawnscaping's Second Blog Hop!

Welcome to the second Lawanscaping Blog Hop ! So glad you’re here! You should have come to me by way of Karin (Peppermint Patty). This theme is all about RED!!! The hop runs from Friday, December 9th - Sunday, December 11th! Make sure to comment on all of the blogs because there are LOTS of prizes to be won! All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page. The hop is being sponsored by some amazing companies: Lawn Fawn, Mold Muse and Whiskers Graphics!

I decided to make two things for the blog hop. The first is a tag using the adorable bear and sentiment from Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum.

 I also made a card with the tree from Critters in the Forest and Ornate Ornaments.

Edit: I can't believe that I forgot to mention my inspiration for this card! A few weeks back I saw a gorgeous card made by the talented Elizabeth Allan. I liked the way she edged her die cut with snowflakes and thought that this technique would work well with Lawn Fawn's branch from Ornate Ornaments. I also loved the layered tree idea.
Next head on to Danielle Walls' blog. If you've gotten off track, don't worry! Head on back to Lawnscaping  to see the complete list of designers and prize information!

Have fun!

There's snow on the ground..

I finally get to spend the day at home (and not outside in the frosty weather) and finish my Christmas card. I actually made two, but wasn't satisfied with the second card, so I'm not going to post it. I'll have to work on it some more - the background is bothering me.
But I am pleased with the card I made using Lawn Fawn's Cozy Christmas. I love the rich, old-fashion colours of the MME's Lost and Found Christmas paper.

 I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes, plus something dangly (stockings)


Have a great day!

Merry Christmas PB Mice

Wow, this is the first time that I will have entered my card is so many challenges! I haven't had a whole lot of crafting time, and when I do get it, I find myself getting stuck on what to do - or I keep changing what I'm doing as I go. I don't get a lot done that way. :(
But today I managed to make a card inspired by the colours in the picture from Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #138.

I used my paper from Penny Black for the card base and the PB stamp set Winter Wonderland. I used Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles to cut out the image and to emboss the card front. I outlined the outer edge of the embossed shape with my glitter gel pen (hard to see in the picture, though) and tied a ribbon around the top. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn - Cozy Christmas.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes!
The Ribbon Girl - Jingle All the Way to Christmas Challenge
The Ribbon Reel - Anything Goes (plus ribbon)
Totally Papercrafts - Christmas

Have a great day!
