Something Else on Saturday #36 Featuring Snow Buddies from My Favorite Things

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I have been buying loads of new Christmas stamp sets recently and this Snow Buddies set from My Favorite Things was a definite must-have set. I love these cuties! I stamped the images and fussy cut them after colouring, so I could add them to my distress inked sky and die cut snow drifts! I suck really badly at masking images and inking round them, so for me this way works much better! I kept the rest of the card fairly simple as I like to have a few flatter cards for posting. This card is for Creatalicious Challenge #176 Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #176 Anything Goes Crafty Friends Challenge #124 Anything Goes My Time To Craft Challenge #411 Christmas Scene Polkadoodles Challenge Week 48 Anything Goes The Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge Christmas Recipe: Stamps: Snow Buddies from My Favorite Things Papers: Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Falling In Lo

LeAnn's World 101 Inspiration Post

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for LeAnn's World 101. I was very honored to be asked to join this DT after my guest designer card for this month's challenge   and as I love LeAnn's images, I jumped at the chance! So here I am with my project for this month's inspiration using the adorable Snow Friends  image, which I printed a little big, but it works perfectly on this 5 x 7 inch sized card!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #408 Blast From The Past

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for this week's challenge from The Paper Shelter . Our challenge is called Blast from The Past and you can interpret that title in whichever way you like. I sort of did a double meaning in that I used an old digital stamp, Christmas Shopping, from the Paper Shelter that was released in 2015, so from the past! I also think the lovely lady doing her Christmas shopping definitely looks like she is from another era! How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping if you celebrate it? I'm about half way done with mine, just the other half of the boyfriend's to buy, friends and my dad's and maybe work colleagues a little something! Recipe: Stamps: Christmas Shopping from The Paper Shelter, On Thin Ice & Festive Fairies both from Clearly Besotted Papers:  Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, Regals DSP (Retired) & All Is Calm DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card Inks: Night of Navy &

Something Else on Saturday #34 Featuring Lady Bea from JMC Designs

Good morning and welcome to today's Something Else on Saturday post! I am hoping that this one goes live properly this week! I received this digi as a freebie from JMC Designs through the Kit & Clowder Facebook group and I love this funky design! I think I may have to purchase some more of Julia's digis! I have seen loads of these tall card designs around again recently (They were all the rage when I first started crafting), so bought some card blanks and I love using them for a different shape to my usual square! It was a perfect shape for this image as she remained centre stage whilst still being able to add enough embellishments too! The sentiment was part of the patterned papers and thought it fit the feel of this image perfectly as well!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #406 Christmas Spirit

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter . This week, our challenge is called Christmas Spirit and a great opportunity to make a start on some Christmas cards! I have used the newly released My Christmas Snowball and kept with traditional colours of red and green for this card. I actually found these papers in a box I received as a free gift from Create & Craft when I went to the Crafting Live show last year and have hardly used any. I thought they would work really well with this image.

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Snow Bunny

Good morning and welcome to my first inspiration post of the month for Faery Ink. I have now made a bit of a start on my Christmas cards - I send more of these out than I do Hallowe'en cards so have to start making them as soon as Hallowe'en is over! I love this Snow Bunny digi stamp from Faery Ink and just had to colour her in one of my favourite winter combos - pink and grey!

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post! I completely missed last week's post as I forgot to schedule my post and it sat in draft all week, so really this is last Saturday's but a week late! Oops!

Scrapper's Delights VIP Chibi Deals

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for this month's DT VIP Deals from Scrapper's Delights. This is where we share a project using one of the images within this month's deals! I chose to use the gorgeous Xmas Honey 3 image and created a snowy scene of her next to a snowman. I did realise while making this card that I have a major shortage of snowman dies - this was my only one! Need to rectify that I think, so I guess it's time for a bit of crafty shopping!

I won one of their challenges a little while ago and along with a prize of 2 digi images from the store, I was also invited to use one of those images in a GDT post, so here it is! I used the gorgeous Kalani  and added her to this fantastic patterned paper which acted as the perfect background for this scene! I added lots of die cuts to add a bit more texture and scenery too.
