Santa's Overalls

Hi Crafty Friends,
I have a fun Christmas Card featuring Santa's "under" the suit outfit. I used Brass & Bliss Overalls Die mounted on the Offset Diamond Cover Die and tucked the little cuties from the Brass & Bliss Christmas Inchies Stamp Set in the pockets.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What do you think Santa wears to bed?
A: Me? Fleece Onesie with cookies all over

I'm Bananas For You

Hi Crafty Friends,
I used the Poppy Stamps Whittle Pirate Monkey Kit to make this BANANAS card. Could these monkeys be any cuter?!?!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you ever seen a monkey in the wild? Not a the zoo
A: Me? No, but maybe one day I'll go on a safari!

 Final_2 (2)

I started by paper piecing the monkeys together from brown and kraft cardstock which was tedious but worth it for those little faces. Then I die cut a bunch of bananas for the monkeys to hang off.
Final_2 (2)I die cut the word bananas from the Poppy Stamps Marzipan Alphabet Dies and arranged them along the edge of the Poppy Stamps Scallop Pinpoint Rings Die set.
Final_3 (2)I mounted my scene on the pattern paper from Memory Box Glimmering Gladiola 6x6 Paper Pad. I love the gold bursts. I finished my card by stamping the "I'm Bananas for You" sentiment.

Bright & Bubbly

Hi Crafty Friends,
This is my FAVORITE Greetery Stamp and Die set Bubbly & Bright. It reminds me of childhood we had a "kids" tree where we had the bubble lights, colored lights, and goofy ornaments. I used the Build Your Holiday Stash #47 Sketch for my design (see below). I found background paper where the tree has bubble lights!!!!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Did you have bubble lights on your tree as a kid or now?
A: Me? Yes, as a kid

Winter Edgers Snowman

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time to get ahead of the holidays with Christmas in July! Brass and Bliss has you covered with the most amazing array of stamps, dies, and stencils to make gorgeous Christmas cards. I am showing off the NEW Brass & Bliss Winter Edger Dies (COMING this WEDNESDAY with the Brass & Bliss Snowman Stamp Set and Wintery Wonderland 6x6 Paper.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you like traditional or non-traditional colored Christmas cards?
A: Me? I can't choose

Step 1: I colored my snowman up to match the Wintery Woodlands background paper and added epoxy to give his scarf and hat glossy texture.

Step 2: I used each of the Winter Edger Dies and cut them out of three different colors of cardstock and layered them on top of my pattern paper.


Step 3: I used the Brass and Bliss Nested Rectangle Stitched Die to cut through all four layers and mounted it on matching mustard cardstock.

Step 4: I finished my card by adding the sentiment on the smallest die from the Brass & Bliss Nested Scallop with Holes Die and placing the snowman right next to the sentiment.
