Rudolph Sings Carols

Hi everyone! I'm back. After a week off I think I can carry on with life.
Sometimes life throws you a curve  ball and you just have to put your big girls pants on and deal with it. Having said that, I must pick up where I left off and carry on.

So, recently as I was scrolling, this time through Facebook, as you do right?........I came across a really cute and fun christmas card.....which came with a tutorial video a few days later because it was so popular.

The demo I have CASE'd is Linda Parker from the U.K. and I have made her 
Singing Rudolph Card


Isn't he cute!
There is so much I love about this card...where do I start?
Well I think it's very fitting that she has used the Merry Music Specialty paper as the background for this...fun fact...the notes printed on those papers is actually real sheet music.

Now I have had to do one thing differently........unfortunately I did not have the Laying Oval Dies that Linda used to die cut out his head and mouth. So I improvised and used the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies instead as that set has 4 different size Ovals in.
I have used the two largest ones for his head and mouth.

Its just a matter of punching and die cutting out all your pieces and then start assembling him.
I would suggest attaching his antlers to the back of the head piece so you font have to try and put adhesive on a small area. 
Also attach his body to the bottom of the card first before placing his head down.

Now I have also used a very small now retired punch for his little paws holding on to either side of his hym book. Use whatever you may have in your stash or make your own if you are clever enough.

Lastly attach a bow and he is done! Also make sure you leave enough room between the book and the bottom of his head to attach his little bow.

Most of all, have fun with it.
Here is Lindas video tutorial for the card.

Merry Xmas!

I'm absolutely positive no one says "Merry Xmas"......
However, when making this card recently, the original plan was to die cut the letters out for the word Merry and stamp the word Christmas.

Unfortunately, the Large Letters were too large for the card front and Merry simply didn't fit. So it was time to improvise.

Hence, the Merry Xmas.
The card didn't quite turn out as I had planned but I'm still happy with the result.


This layout is quite different and I had seen something similar on Pinterest and really wanted to give it a try. I quite like it.

I love how there are 3 elements close together, the paper, the die cut letters and the snowflake dies in their background and then the simple Merry stamped in the top left corner finishes it off. I'm also partial to the colour combo!!
Then add some black rhinestones from the Holiday Catalogue and I think this makes a great Christmas card.

Sending Love & Hugs...

Recently a good friend and a fellow Crazy Crafter lost a beloved family member....(fur baby).
My heart sank when I heard she was very upset.

So I made her this to let her know I was thinking of her.


I LOVED this when I first saw it.......its a CASE of a Mary Fish creation over at Stampin' Pretty.

I changed it up ever so slightly by using the Gold Faceted Gems for the centres of the flowers.
This is the first time I have used the Gingham Ribbon and WOWSERS! Its beautiful.
I'm not a ribbon lover and don't use it often on my cards but after using this particular ribbon, this may change in the future.

My friend received the card and she loved it.

You're Delightful

I love it when I get to surprise a friend with a surprise gift!

I knew that she liked the You're Delightful Hostess Set so when I was lucky enough to earn some Stampin' Rewards, I decided to get us both a set!

Then I made her a card with the set.


This card took no time at all and I was able to use some of the Delightful Daisy Designer Paper for the background which I haven't used yet (I don't think! lol)

Then I just embossed the stamped image with Gold Emboss Powder on the Vellum paper.

Now adhering vellum to anything can be difficult because its see through....so I used very small amounts, dabbed on, of the multipurpose liquid glue and I followed the lettering on the reverse side and stuck it down that way.
Then you cant see the glue through the vellum as its behind the embossed wording.

Add a few touches of bling here and there with a Glitter Enamel Dot and also some Wink of Stella here and there on the flowers on the paper, a wooden flower to finish and its done.
