I used all the same parts, but I changed my main image to Mrs Clause, from Riley & Company. For the small snowflakes in the background, I used a stamp from the Serene Snowflake set.
I let Olivia choose between the bashful blue or riding hood red, and she decided on the bashful blue.
I sponged on bashful blue, used copics to colour & the hanger is bashful blue taffeta with sheer white ribbon
Rachel's is the red one. I used riding hood red because I wanted to use the taffeta ribbon, I love that stuff. I had intended on using vanilla with the red, but I forgot and didn't remember until I had Sophie all coloured!
Donna's is lavendar lace. Her favorite colours are orange & purple, so this seemed like a good choice. Orange just doesn't seem like Christmas to me!
To make the snowflakes softer, I stamped in ink, then on a scrap paper, then on my circle. Sophie's outfit and the snowflakes are covered in iridescent ice glitter.
Stamps: Mrs. Clause, SU Serene Snowflakes
Paper: white, riding hood red, lavendar lace, bashful blue
Ink: memento tuxedo black, riding hood red, lavendar lace, bashful blue
Accessories: copics, circle/scallop nesties, floral accent nesties, dimensionals, sponges, pearls, iridescent ice glitter, ribbon
Have a Great Day!
I ended up needing a few gift card holders for Christmas so I used some great ideas I found on SCS. Unfortunately I forgot to get a picture of the inside of te snowman holder! This one opens at the top, like a card & has a pocket inside. I was inspired this one by genescrapper, and this one by Toy.
This is the Beanie gift card holder, TLC251. Another quick gift card holder that can be decorated any way you want! I went with a fairly simple design since I was running out of time! The snowflake is a mini tree decoration & I cut the circle off that had the thread hanger...does that make sense?
I made this for Olivia's Teacher. It was a combo Christmas and goodbye gift, as he will not be returning after the New Year. He was filling in for her Teacher who was on maternity leave, he will be greatly missed.
The treat container was made using the TLC250 shipping tag bag/box challenge, my shipping tags were a little larger, so I adjusted the size to fit mine. We filled the box with homemade peanut butter squares!

So you're not out fighting the crowds on the last Saturday before Christmas!!!! I agree, surfing the net is way more relaxing, and fun!
This handsome guy is from Totally Stampalicious in a set called Snowmen. I stamped him on white & coloured with copics. His hat & scarf were stamped separately, coloured and cut out. The image panel was cut with my new nesties Label #8. I cut a couple extra pieces for the bottom too.
I attached the bottom pieces with temporary tape, then embossed the whole thing with the swiss dot EF. Then I removed the bottom pieces, added the glitter and then reattached them.
I was so happy to get my new Candy cane stripes EF. I embossed the red background piece, then ran the edge of my white craft ink pad along the raised edges.
The sentiment is popped up, and I added sheer ribbon. The candy is a mini tree decoration, just like the snowflake in the post below!
Have a Great Weekend!
So this is the beautiful new Riley stamp called Mrs Clause. You can now find Riley stamps at his new home Riley and Company. She definitely looks like she enjoys the snow more than me!
I stamped her on white, and coloured with copics. All the furry bits of her outfit & the snowflakes are covered with dazzling diamonds EP.
The card base is soft sky, with dp from the SEI pad winter song.
I used sheer white ribbon, and white taffeta ribbon. Now here's a cool tip, the snowflake is actually a mini Christmas decoration! If you're going to rush out & buy some, save some for me, I'm planning on stocking up on these, and after Christmas they'll be really cheap! lol
Have a great Weekend

My card today features a stamp that can be found in the new 'Waiting For Mr. Right' set. Keeping with the whole Mr. Right thing, I decided to make it love potion! lol The sentiment is computer generated.
I stamped the image onto white, coloured with copics and then cut it out. Then I covered the whole glass with crystal . I seem to be having trouble taking a decent picture these days, but trust me the glass is shiny and the colours on the card are much more vibrant IRL!

This is part of a new set 'Snowmen' released by Totally Stampalicous last Friday! There are tons of possibilities with this set! When I saw this Snow Globe Card tutorial by Libby Hickson posted on SCS last week I knew I wanted to use my new Snowman set.
So this weeks challenge was to use glitter...who doesn't love glitter! well as I'm typing this I realize I used glitter embossing powder!!!! I hope that still counts...it makes the same mess all over! lol
I stamped my snowman onto white, and coloured him with copics, I added glitter, yep real dazzling diamonds glitter, with a quickie glue pen, to his melting bits. Then I cut the snowman out.
I followed the directions of the tutorial to cut out my pieces. I a circle nestie to cut the acetate. The top snowdrift & the edge on the front were covered with versamark & embossed with iridescent ice ep.
The first snowflakes I stamped in craft white, and then found out that won't dry on acetate! So I used a little goo gone on a cloth to wipe my acetate clean & started over! If you use stazon, I used opaque white, it drys!
I totally forgot to take a picture of the inside, and I'm too lazy to go back downstairs, the sentiment says 'I think I need a higher SPF' lol it's one of the many stamps in the set.
There's still time to enter the challenge to win a $10. gift certificate from Totally Stampalicous, why not give it a try?
Have a Great Day!

I've posted a few cards on my blog using their stamps, and now I get to show you the brand new stamps for November!
Meet Willameana (love her name) she has a lotta explaining to do, and is hoping to get into Santa's good book!
I stamped Willameana onto white & coloured with copics. Well actually now much colouring, because her pj's & headband are dp. I also used the white inkessentials pen on the pockets & colour, and a sakura stardust pen on her zipper to make it a bit sparkly!
The card base is always artichoke, with a layer of soft sky embossed with the snow dot EF. The dp is from Basic Grey. I punched a square out of the always artichoke & cut it crosswise for the 2 triangles. The soft sky pieces on top were mmade with the Nestie fancy tag die, and I just cut it in half. I finished it off with gems.
The main image panel and the triangles are popped up.
Willameana is available in the store now, and don't forget there's still time to enter this weeks challenge!

Okay have you seen the amazing cards the DT has made so far? They're amazing you have to check them out HSC92 Gallery.
I kinda went the easy route on this one, but it was what popped into my head, so I went with it. I know it's just a circle, but I did try to make it look like the moon! lol I used glossy cardstock, and cut a circle with the 2nd largest coluzzle circle. Then I sponged on yoyo yellow in the middle and various shades of green going from lightest to darkest towards the edge. Then I ran it through the CB with the spots & dots embossing folder.
The Witch on Broom Riley was stamped on white, and coloured with copics.
Stamps: Witch on Broom Riley
Paper: glossy white, white, black, orchid opulence
Ink: noir black palette, yoyo yellow, green galore, certainly celery, old olive, always artichoke, orchid opulence

I used the little battery operated tealights for safety. Sorry the pictures aren't too great, I was having trouble getting the light right!

I bought the glass jar at the Dollarama. I also found the wire mesh in the craft section at the Dollarama. I'm not sure if it was a great idea though, because the edges are sharp & I now have a few cuts on my hands! Maybe I should wrap it around the chocolate I shouldn't eat! LOL
OK so I used my stamp-a-jig and stamped the brick wall on 2 strips of white. Then I coloured them in with copics. By then my eyes were blurry and my hand was cramped!
I also stamped Mason Riley and coloured him with copics. I used nesties to cut the image, mesh & cardstock.
For the lid, I used the bricks & graffiti set. Then cut them out with nesites.
Stamps: Mason Riley, Brick wall, Graffiti
Paper: white, black, metal mesh
Accessories: copics, nesties,
