Snowglobes and Gumball Machines

When I saw this Snow Globe die in the A Muse holiday catalog I knew I had to have one, so many possibilities for cuteness!! This is my first card with it. I used stamps from Holiday Tags, and the Cloud dies to create my little winter scene, sentiment is from Mini Holiday Messages.  Papers I used were, Candy Cane Stripe, Twas, French Roast, Sky, Vanilla, and a tiny scrap of shimmer card stock for my snow. I love how this card turned out! It got me to thinking of other ways I could use this die...
 Like maybe a gumball machine!! :) It could also be a fish bowl, but I didn't have a fish stamp or die to try that idea out. I punched a bunch of 1/2 inch circles for my gumballs, the top was made by cutting off the top part of the globe stand and adding a 1/2 inch circle to the top. The other pieces I just free handed. Simple, but so cute! What do you think?

I hope that you are having a wonderfully delightful day! Thanks for stopping by.

Mittens and Tags!

Did I ever mention how much I love creating for Christmas?! I do, it is one of my most favorite times to create things for. My problem is I never start early enough to get all the things I want to make done before the rush of the Holidays set in. Life it seems is always busy, so this year I am trying (again) to get an early start!  This is another A Muse Open House sample for this weekend!! (see previous post for more info on Open House!) I am so very excited about this Large Mitten Die, I have been cutting these out by hand for years, now I don't have too!! I have so many ideas for things to make with this die I know I won't possible get to them all, but I am going to try! This is actually a card, I used our wonderful felt for the cuff and snowflake, have I ever mentioned how much I love felt?! :) I used French Roast and Ocean inks on  Bermuda paper to create the plaid with Mad About Plaid. I think that will become one of my favorite stamp sets, so fun!
 Another set of dies that I am really enjoying is the classic tags, they make up so quickly and beautifully! For these I used Sky ink and card stock, Twas card stock, Nordic Noel and Mini Holiday Messages stamp sets. You can not see it so well in the picture but I covered my stamped images with glue and sprinkled them with Diamond Glitter, so sparkly!! Sentiments were stamped in French Roast ink. A Little brown and white Bakers Twine finishes it off. These would be easy to mass produce for all your Christmas packages and gifts.

So what do you think?  I will be back tomorrow with more to share, I hope that you will join me then!
Have a beautiful day!!

Open House!

 I have been busy making lots of samples for my upcoming A Muse Open House. And can I just say, I have been having so much fun playing with all my new 'toys'!! Here are a couple Christmas samples that I think turned out great. This first one is a wall decoration, I made three of these, each one using a different die with our wonderful felts!! This one uses the Small Mitten Die and Heart Trio Die. Sentiment is from Vintage Holiday Greetings.  How about that Candy Cane Card Stock!? Yum!
 This is a sweet little ornament or gift tag, is made on one of our 2" Maple Tags, I love these things, and you can punch right through them with the crop-a-dile!!  This will be one of the make and takes at my Open House!! This stamp set is called Holiday Tags, and the paper is T'was Card Stock, both of which I am totally in love with!
If you would like to check out any of these items, please head on over to my A Muse online store Here. This is the last week of A Muse A Palooza too, let me know if you have an order of $150.00 or more, you will qualify for rewards, but I must place your order for you to receive them!!

I would love to see you at my Open House this coming Sunday, October 2nd, from 12:00 to 4:00 at The Crafter's Mall in Redding. If you can't make it on Sunday, I will be having another one on Wednesday October 5th from 10:00 to 12:00, also at The Crafter's Mall.  Please RSVP and let me know if you plan to stop by so I can have a kit with the make n take projects for you!
