MFT Cool Day and Merry Christmas Circle Die

Hey peeps.  Happy Wednesday.  We are getting closer and closer to Christmas.  I'm still shaking things up in my room with some last minute cards.  Here is one I made for a sweet little girl who wanted an interactive card this year.

I stamped out the cute polar bear from the MFT Cool Days stamp set and colored him up with Copic markers and paired him with a sweet little birdie and sign.  Next I die cut out some snow drifts and the Merry Christmas circle die to begin the assembly of my shaker.  I used some older paper from my scrap bin and some lovely sequins from my ever growing sequin collection. I made sure to stamp shake me on the sign so she knew to shake the card so the sequins could move.

I'm trying to challenge myself to make a least one interactive card a month.  This way when I do make them I won't feel so overwhelmed and scared.  I outdid myself already this month and made a spinner/slider card last week.  You can find it here.

Have a great Wednesday everyone.  I'll see you back here soon.

Christmas Shaker Tags

Happy Monday everyone.  I'm back today sharing some sweet Christmas shaker tags and I'm joining in on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.  Making tags is such an easy and fun way to add a special touch to your holiday gifts.

For my tags I used the Dashing Deer stamp set from MFT and the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 die-namics along with some Birthday Blowout pattern paper.  This shaker tag was a breeze to put together.  Instead of using foam tape I die cut out the shape of the tag six times to build up the thickness of the tag. This keeps the sides of the tag clean.  Since this tags are small I only needed one image inside and just a few sequins.

Adding just a banner sentiment across the top of my tag and my shaker tag was complete.

Have a great day everyone.  See you back here later in the week.

Classic White and Gold Christmas Cards

Hey everyone.  I'm in my craft room loving making some simple cards for my friends.  Nothing is prettier to me than a classic white and gold Christmas card. The simplicity of the two colors really makes the design you use stand out.  I love adding just a touch of red and/or green to a classic Christmas card. Just don't overdo it.  Keep the majority of the card with a lot of white space and the let gold color be the next big punch of color.

For my card today I used the Fairy Christmas stamp set from Ink On 3 and the Kaleidoscope background stamp from Simon Says Stamp along with some princess gold embossing powder.  Since the bells and holly on this image are small I only have to use a small amount of color using my zig clean color real brush markers.  To add some detail to the card I used stitched dies to add faux stitching to the circle and the layering panel on my card. I popped up my sentiment with a circle of fun foam just to add some dimension to my card. Now of course I wanted to add just a few sequins to these cards.  I just had too.  LOL

Look how pretty that sentiment is.  I love the little jingle bells on each of the letters.  Stamping the background on half of the background allows the sentiment to standout and now be overwhelmed by the background design. 

Have a blessed Sunday everyone.  I'll see you back here tomorrow with another card.

Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop + Tutorial

Hey everyone.  Happy Friday.   I'm getting close to making the last of my tutorials for 2017.  I still can't believe we are almost to the end of the year.  The holidays are here and I'm ready to spend some relaxing time with family and friends.

I'm participating in the Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop as well as sharing a quick and simple Christmas card.  I have just a few cards left to give out to neighbors and friends. For my card for the blog hop, I kept it clean and simple and added just a cute coffee cup to my card.

Now you can make a very similar card minus the coffee mug and have ten cards done in a flash.  One the card below there is only one large sentiment on this card and some nuvo drops.  Can you believe I don't even have a sequin on this one? I used the gorgeous Lawn Fawn Knit Picky 6x6 paper pad for my card base and the stitched retangle stax die-namics for the light stitching on my card. 

Since this card was so easy to create, I decided to make some in green as well.  Mast production in the house with these!!

You can watch the tutorial here or on my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.  I've used affiliate link for your shopping convenience at no cost to you.

Thanks for hanging out with me.  See ya back here next week.  Have a fabulous weekend!!!
