Fun with Dolls

Many of you know that I like to sew doll clothes.  It all started with my grandmother, years ago.  I recently was the lucky winner of an American Girl doll and a custom outfit from PixieFaire.  This adorable outfit is from Seams to Streams.  I just love it!  It has inspired me to get busy sewing again!

This was a fun Christmas surprise for sure!

Holly Berries

Hello friends, I have two cards today with similar colors and design.  I am entering them in the YNS #104 challenge, Anything Goes.  I am also entering my cards in the SSS Christmas Challenge.  I just love the YNS Holly Berry Panel.  It is sure to become one of my holiday favorites.  It was a bit tedious to die cut and place all the elements, but the outcome is so worth it!  As usual, the foil sections are not easy to photograph.

Season's Greetings

My card today is for the  SSS Flickr Challenge 111.  As usual I am down to the wire.  I used a couple SSS products.  The Picture Book Snowman is one of my favorites.  I also used the Falling Snow Stencil.  I love this stencil and have used it year after year.  This time I used the Circle Doodle Background.  I embossed it in white  on craft, and then colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I like the way it turned out.

Like No One Elf

Bling it Out Again

I have a second card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #39.  I am also entering my card in the current SSS Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes. I used Deco foil with my laminator this time.  I forgot how much fun this technique can be.  I matched the foil to some of the LawnFawn holiday papers for a less traditional look.

Bling it Out

Today I have a card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #39.  This challenge is to use a little bling, and is perfect for this time of year!

I used a bunch of sparkly supplies.  Lawn Fawn paper, Imagine Shimmer spray and Icicle Stickles.  The background was a bit of a happy accident.  I used Distress Oxide Ink on Alcohol paper  and sprayed it with water.  It took a while to dry but the result was like snowy weather.  I also switched the dot on the eye to a heart.  One more Christmas card finished!
