Warm Wooly Mittens

I've been having so much fun playing with the new Cozy Mittens set from Lisa Johnson Designs from My Favorite Things. I made this card to go along with their Color Palette Challenge and their Sketch Challenge.

The design possibilities for these mittens are endless, as far as your imagination will allow!
I also used the Blueprints #20 & #13.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

Thanks so much for looking! Have a very blessed Thanksgiving!! Birgit

Crafty Secrets Treat Box

I created this cute little Christmas goodie box using some digital elements from the Crafty Secrets Retro Christmas CD #5. I printed the background papers onto cardstock and cut them in a Mason Jar design, using my cricut cutting machine.

I created a little box to fit between the two sides to stash some Christmas goodies in.

Once the goodie box was assembled, I added the image printed from the same CD and embellished the box with some vintage rick-rak, twine, buttons, burlap and a bell. The cute little tag was from the Christmas Creative Scraps.
Thanks so much for looking. Blessings~ Birgit

Warm & Cozy

I couldn't stop at my last card (see this post) since it didn't give me the craft fix that I needed. Just yesterday, I received a package of fun mail from MFT and I couldn't wait to ink up the adorable mittens by Lisa Johnson Designs. Here's the card I made for this challenge:

I'm tellin' you, if you are looking for a cute mitten stamp set, this is the one! I adore all the little elements in this set that help you create your very own set of perfectly stitched mittens. I can see that I'm going to have a hard time putting this set down.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

Christmas Poinsettia

The Color Throwdown just posted their new color challange:

Sweet picture and great colors. Right?



So I just happened to go into my craft room to try to come up with something and just happened to have this poinsettia image sitting on my work table that I just created yesterday. I stamped it, masked it with liquid glaze and had let it dry for the day. What a wonderful realization to see that the colors fit the challenge perfectly, so I whipped up this little card layout in a flash, so I could post it today!

Supplies Used:
Painted Poinsettia from PTI
Postmarks from PTI
Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers from PTI
Peaceful Pinecones from PTI
Postage Stamp Dies from MFT
Blueprints #20 from MFT

Poinsettia Die from Spellbinders.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

Merry Christmas Bells

Even though this has been out for a while, this set of Bells & Boughs from PTI is new to me this year, so I've really been enjoying inking it up to create some Christmas cards. I love the vintage-y looking bells in the set. So here's another card I made to enter into the Merry Monday Challenge and the Festive Friday Challenge.

I think this will be a timeless set, since it can be used for weddings, anniversaries, Christmas and other celebrations as well. There are so many elements to choose from, it's becoming a fast favorite of mine that I turn to time and time again. Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
