Little Elf

Hi :)  It's new release time again at CC Designs and this month it's all about Christmas.
Isn't this stamp a cutie!   I LOVE her big eyes :) Her name is Little Elf.

CC Designs, Little elf, snarky sentiments, christmas

The sentiment is from a new CC Designs sentiment set called Snarky Christmas.  It has a lot of "different/funny" sentiments and a few more normal ones too :)

The cute paper is from an Authentique pad called Joyous.  I got it last year and there is just a tiny bit left, I love this Naughty or Nice scale paper in it and thought I'd use my last scrap of it with the "naughty" sentiment.  I also used the CC Designs Notebook Edges Die.

There are a lot of really cute releases this month at CC Designs.  You can see a lot of inspirational cards from the DT  on the CC Designs Blog.  Please check them out.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Little Elf, Snarky Sentiments
Card : x-press it, olive, limeaide, Joyous (Authentique)
Ink : memento black
Other : CC Designs Notebook Edges Die, library clip, crystal effects, copics

Reindeer Flying

I have a card for Bunny Zoe's Crafts to share today and it's my first Christmas card of the year!
And as it's almost October now, that seems a little late to me.  I had better get creating or my Christmas card list will have to be drastically shortened :)

This one is using the adorable Wild Rose Studio stamp called Reindeer Flying.

He actually comes with one star but I wanted a couple more so I just stamped it again a couple of times, coloured them, cut them out and stuck them on where I wanted.
The paper is from a pad by Basic Grey called Persimmon and I also used a Prima Sun Kiss button.

Ingredients :

Stamps :  Reindeer Flying (Wild Rose Studio)
Card : x-press it, Midnight Muse, brushed gold, Persimmon (Basic Grey)

Musical Autumn's Mum

I decided to use CC Design's Autumn's Mum again, 'cause she's just so sweet and fun to colour too.
I thought this might be a nice Thank You card for one of my daughter's music teachers.

 I used another new set by CC Designs called Pebbles too, I just masked the image and then stamped it so she would have something to stand on :)  I also used a new die from CC Designs called the Notebook Edges Die and the sentiment is from the All About Teachers set and is perfect I think.

Layer Cake

I have a card for Bunny Zoe's Crafts to share today and I've used The Greeting Farm set called Layer Cake.  And amazingly there is no colouring involved at all!!!
