Seashell Sarah christmas card

Hi all, I cannot believe Christmas is only a month away ... although I am personally not a person who celebrates Christmas in a big way (you know the Christmas tree, presents, carols, decorations etc...) but I do love to make my Christmas cards/gifts and be with loved ones at Christmas time ... to me Christmas is family, friends, loved ones and most importantly ... FOOD!  especially Christmas pudding!
So I have made a shaped Christmas card using CC Designs 'seashell sarah' for my DT post over at The Stamp Spot.
I think this is an apt Christmas card for us in the Southern Hemisphere - as it is Summer and most will go to the beach at some point during their holidays!
materials used: smooth green & white cardstock, AC pacific cardstock; Echo Park ‘so happy together’ papers; CC Designs ‘seashell sarah’ stamp, MFT christmas ornaments stamps (title), AnnaBelle Stamps ‘boys party’ (boat); Staz On black inks; Crayola pencils; Kaisercraft pearls; Crystallina glitter; Carl scallop scissors; Spellbinders petite scalloped circles large and standard circles large; Ranger white opal liquid pearls

Xmas tags with a difference!

Hi all, this month over at The Stamp Spot Blog the November challenge is to create a TAG project ... to easy! and the prize is a 30% off voucher for all and any Washi tapes ... now we all love Washi tape and you can never have too much of these gorgeous products and at The Stamp Spot Michelle has a great range and they are sooooooooooooo cheap at $2.50 a roll! 
So my project today is a collection of christmas gift tags using 'Tropic Topic' stamps from The Alley Way Stamps
I made these gift tags a little cheeky by combining titles from the tropic topic set and adding 'this xmas' using a MFT alphabet set.  As you can see I have used non-traditional christmas colours.
Materials used: AC spinach card, C’D amaryllis card, Bazzill fawn card, blue grey card; The Alley Way Stamps ‘tropic topic’ stamps, MFT mini banner day alphabet stamps; Versa Color black, Staz On black, Color Palette magenta inks; Crayola pencils; MFT christmas ornament dies; The twinery twine; Marvy markers; Pizzazz Aplenty pearls; Signo white gel pen; grosgrain; satin trim

Christmas bug hugs

Hi there, here is my first post this month for THE STAMP SPOT.  I have chosen to preview this gorgeous 'bug hugs' set from Our Craft Lounge range.
These are a set of rubber mounted stamps and probably suited to a valentines set ... but I like a challenge and have used the little 'girl' bug and part of a title and mixed and matched it with some christmas papers and come up with this simple and easy christmas card ...
Materials used:
C’D dutchess cardstock, smooth white cardstock; Kaisercraft ‘silly season’ papers; Craft Lounge ‘bug hugs’ stamps, MFT christmas ornaments stamp set; Versa Color black ink; Crayola pencils; MFT hexagon dies; Ranger white opal liquid pearls
She is a cute little thing!  The challenge this month over at THE STAMP SPOT BLOG is just to easy ... you can enter HERE. 
Happy Crafting!
