FwF on Black Friday!

     How did it ever get to be the day after Thanksgiving already?  I am as busy as can be, but I just wanted to post for Friends with Flair.  I have one last Thanksgiving card I would like to share. It uses a sentiment and leaf stamp from the September 2014, Unity Kit of the Month.

     My card includes orange card stock and a background created using and old SU! stamp called Pindot Plaid.  My ink is Tangelo Twist.  I place the sentiment on a small manila shipping tag, and the rest are embellishments.  They include burlap, a metallic pumpkin sticker, and a jeweled fabric button from K&Co.
     That is it for today.  If you are into the shopping madness, I hope you get all the goodies you are on the hunt for.  Me, I am off to work, to see what Black Friday hold for me there.  Thanks for the visit!

Friends with Flair!

     Heidi-Ho, stamping pals.  Today I am posting some tags that I created with the October 2012 Unity KOM.  Friends with Flair, is one of my favorite days. I also wanted to remind everyone that there is an amazing sale going on in the Unity shop, called the Brown Thursday Sale.   How can you pass up $20+ kits for $4.95.  Eek!  The new releases are so cute!  I also saw that this KOM is reduced to $22, so hurry!

     Anyway, back to my tags.  This KOM is one of the favorites during the holiday as it has everything you need to create those special touches on hand made gifts and goodies.  It is a little early here for me to start baking, but now I am ready to tie and give.

     I used kraft card stock for Gina K. Designs, and punched my tags with the tag topper punch from SU!.  I stamped my images in Memento ink, and then added the snowy dots and the flakes with Hero Arts unicorn white.  Coloring was done with Copic markers, The white on the trees is with the SU! chalk marker, and I used a Stardust pen to twinkle up the trees.  I added brown and white bakers twine for attaching.

     Hectic week around here.  I have to work tonight to set up for our Christmas preview at 8 am, tomorrow.  That is all of the donations of Christmas items that generous people have donated all year long.  Then, tomorrow, I am cooking our Thanksgiving dinner, as the family all has to work next Friday, and can't make it home for Thursday. It will be a fun weekend!  There are going to be some good smells coming from this kitchen!  Thanks for stopping by.

Filling Holiday Orders

     Everyone seems to be needing a little of this and that to add to their holiday list.  I was given a request by 2 co-workers, for Mother cards.  I was finally able to come up with a design, so I will be using it for both.  I love a good easel card!  Since I worked real hard at using up all of my white pieces, I would like to take this over to Pixie's Snippets Playground # 151. 

     My base is Neenah white, and the red sparkle stripe is very thick, and is from American Crafts.  The stamps are from Flourishes Christmas Candles SS172.  The dies are Spellbinders scalloped oval, and Sweet n Sassy's mother die.  Sponging was done with SU! real red, and the coloring was done with Copic markers.  Embellishments are a paper doily, red gems, and touches of Stickles.

I would also like to enter this at the:
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge-  Christmas

     Thanks for stopping by, and if you are in the grips of this Polar Vortex, stay safe and warm.

Sharing for Friday Flair!

     Happy Friday morning, Unity friends!  We had our first snow of the season, last evening.  Some got more than others, and it did not last.  The cold air, however, is hanging around.  Today I would like to share a card I made as an order for a lady at work.  I grabbed my kit of the month and just went to work.  For that reason, I will share this for Friends with Flair today.

     Here is the supply list:
Stamps:  Unity Nov. 2014 KOM
Paper:  Card stock, Gina K. Designs- Blue Raspberry, Dp, Pebbles-Family Ties collection
Punches:  Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Dies:  Fence, Sweet N Sassy, and the Number Dies are from Memory Box- Large Typewriter
Embellishments:  Stickles, and pearls

     I would also like to send this over to Pixie's Snippets Playground #150, since I used up lots of white bits for my die cutting and stamping.

     Whatever you do this weekend, make it fun!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Friends with Flair

     I am a little late with my Friends with Flair post for today.  I love this little Unity Itty Bitty stamp called Hey There, Wise Guy.  Isn't this bird a cutie?  I changed up the sentiment for another Unity sentiment, which I thought went well.  The card was made with mostly scraps, and the addition of twine, Dew Drops, and gems.  Coloring was done with Copic Markers. 

     I thought this would be sweet to send to my DGS, for a just because occasion.  Hope your holidays are starting to come together, especially Thanksgiving.  Sounds like I may be cooking the weekend before, and going out for the actual day.  That will be fun!  Plan on hitting a few church bazaars tomorrow, and if I come across anything fun and crafty, I will be sure to post!  Have a great weekend.

Snippets to the Max!

     Welcome to another week, and a new post for Pixie's Snippets Playground # 149.  This card has more bits than a horse with it's tack.  I was so happy when people started to include banners on their cards.  It makes for some good use of those strips that are too wide to just toss, but not wide enough to create a whole background.

     That about sums up all of the papers used on this card.  The lacy heart die is from Simon Says Stamp, and the little love die is from PTI.  There is some hot pink burlap, and faceted square gems.  I used one of the threads I pulled from the burlap, to tie a little bow.  Just in case you did not know, if you pull a thread in your burlap, you have a perfect straight line to cut on.

     Since I did use one of Simon Says Stamp exclusive dies, I shall load this on their Anything Goes, Wednesday Challenge.

     Looks like some of my stamping friends had a bit of the white stuff, over the weekend.  Sorry, guys!  We just had cold and wind.  They are starting to hype up about something coming this weekend, so we will see.  Have a great week.
