A little Punny Christmas


Good Morning!!!

Thought I'd share some fun Christmas Cards featuring sentiments that are Chuckle Worthy!!!

These sentiments are from my good friend Jeanne Streiff's line of stamps at Impression Obsession 

This first card features this large cheery snowman die along with the Elf Outfit die. I'll be sharing more ideas with the Elf outfit dies soon! SOOOOO cute!!!

and of course, the piece de resistance.......oh that's fancy for describing a punny sentiment isn't it?


This little sentiment is kinda cute too I think!!!!

I think this card describes me PERFECTLY!!!!!

Mary Poppins with a bit of Kink!!! {lol}

This is super outdated DP, but it I thought it perfect for this card. The Heart Dies are from Stamps of Life I believe!!!

I should be back tomorrow with some Holiday Goodness

Until then.......

Sweet and Sparkly Christmas

Here is a Magical Christmas Card I created for a special girl!!!

I sure hope she likes it.

I coupled Lawn Fawn's winter dragon and little dragon with Impression Obsession's 

I used one of the sparkly background I created using the Alcohol Ink Glitter Paper technique.
The LInks for the technique as posted by Jennifer McGuire is in the previous post.

I also added a Primitive Snowflake to embellish the Snowglobe

The Castle Die is from Echo Park. 
I created the sky in the snowglobe with Spun Sugar, Speckled Egg and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I filled the shaker with snow and sparkles!!!!
The Snow hills were hand cut out of embossed cardstock!

This card was time consuming, but it sure is pretty! I wish the photo could do it justice!!!

Anywhooooo , I may be back again this week with more holiday shares!

Have an amazing day!

Three Trees and a Merry Christmas


Good Morning!!

Today is old is new day at Impression Obsession.

I'm sharing a couple of older dies on my card

Just wanted to give you a photo reference for this die as it also includes the New Year portion

A great deal at only $12.50

The background of the card is done with glitter paper and alcohol inks

I saw my friend Rhea's samples and then headed over to You Tube, to find Jennifer McGuire's tutorial HERE:

I really enjoyed this technique, although next time I will wear gloves, cause I was VERY INKY after!!!!

Tim Holtz in the House!!!

Good Morning!!!!

My TIm Holtz Pointsettia Stamp Finally Arrived!!!

I have to say it is well worth the wait. Vintage looking and gorgeous, it was screaming to be water coloured.

I stamped and embossed the images and sentiment in gold and very loosely watercoloured.
If you look very closely.......super closely, you can see I added a  touch of  text in Broken China Distress Ink.

Here it is in shades of blue.

Oh my word, this set is SO pretty and I think looks great with loose watercolour!

Hope you have an amazing day!!

Lovin Lawn Fawn

I had so much fun creating these fun interactive cards for some special littles (well and maybe a few bigs) in my life!!

This card uses the Snow Much Fun and coupled with the Den Sweet Den set.

In addition, I used this super cute little snowman die from Impression Obsession Stamps along with the super sweet Three Trees Dies

Sooo cute and I love how the little Prism Pencil Coloured Bear waves his arms with the pull tab die!!!

The Christmas Greeting Sentiment is from Creative Expressions

This Smaller card packs just as much cuteness in less space!!!

I used the same products as listed above

Along with some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard

I can't even!!!!

I sure hope my littles are surprised when they see these super fun Magic Iris Snow Globe Cards!!!

This one also uses the Three Trees Dies from IO Stamps
They look a little different because I punched the centres out of the.... Well not Punch, just gently poked them out!!! lol

The background paper is from Pebble Merry Merry 6x6 pad and the let it snow sentiment is a Tim Holtz Christmas Rub on pack that's been kicking around in my craft drawere (yes, can you believe I only have ONE craft drawer?... BIG EYE ROLL....). The stamps used are from Cheery Christmas!

Lastly for today, I am sharing these cute little bears from the Den Sweet Den set and the Christmas Dreams set

Although a little time consuming, they were so much fun to make!!! 
I sure hope my peeps enjoy them!!!

I have a few cards to finish to go out Monday and then I can rest easy for a bit!!!!

Have a great weekend
