Sam E and A Video!

Hello and Happy Wednesday! Bunny here with a pretty cute Sam E Snowman card.
I even did a video!

For this card, I started with a Mini Slimline Backdrop base in textured navy cardstock. I also cut another Mini Slimline Backdrop in white, then used the Elegant Edges to create my mound of snow! 
I stamped the sentiment from Snowman Sentiments in Jet Black Archival ink using my MISTI.
I used Picket Fence Distress Ink and a Jillian Vance Signature Baby Blending Brush to ink up the Scattered Stars Stencil and edges of the Mini Slimline Tall Tree. I wanted it to be there but very subtle.
I used Want2Scrap Baby Bling in Black for his eyes!

 Now for the fun NEW Die Set...
Feathered Friends Die Set, aren't they adorable?
We had many requests from customers at shows, to do a small bird die set, just like the birds in the Tweet Bird Cage Die Jillian did it! THEN added a mini set just for Sam E. Snowman.
But they can be used in so many ways! Like in the Mini Slimline Tall Trees too!

Enjoy my video...keep in mind, I called them Featherly Friends...not sure why I thought that is what Jillian named them! I love the Feathered Friends name!

Thank you for joining me today and have a great week!

Santa Mug!

Hello, everyone! Happy Wednesday!
Since we didn't have a Tuesday Night Live last night due to a hockey game, I decided to do a video featuring this card! The game was Hockey Fights Cancer night, which is near and dear to our hearts because we've lost many to that horrible disease.

And, since the Fall and Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is still going on, I wanted to do a fun, quick card for you guys! I created a short video to show you how I put this together.
The main coffee blog is here:

I started with the Mini Slim Backdrop cut out of red cardstock. I added the Signature A2 Polka Dot Cover Plate cut to 3 and 1/2 in wide, then layered the black Mini Slim Frame over that to cover those cut edges. It was clever for Jillian to design it that way so that you can use A2 sized cover plates for Mini Slim cards!

Then I cut the mug from the Hug in a Mug Die Set, which I use a lot. I thought I need some whipped cream and decided Santa's beard was perfect for that. so I cut Santa out and cut off the beard, turned it upside down and now we have whipped topping! After the video I decided it needed a little bit of a shadow, so I added a black shadow after the video was complete. I cut the steam out of acetate, which is from the Cozy Cup Die Set. The cute little Holly is from Sam E. Snowman, and there's also a similar die in Santa and Friends.
I used a Sentiment Strip for the belt and the buckle from the Witch Hat Shaker Die Set. The sentiment is from Just BeClaus and stamped on a So Many Stitched Sentiment Strips die cut.
Such a fun and quick card!

Here is my video, enjoy!

Have a blessed rest of the week!

2022 Fall/Winter Blog Hop Week

Welcome to the 2022 Fall/Winter Blog Hop week!
Jillian is proud to be a Super Sponsor!

The main coffee blog is here:

Today I have a fun Mini Slimline card, that I love how it came out!

One again, I am loving the non traditional colors of Red and shades of Turquoise.
This PhotoPlay paper was perfect for what I wanted!
I started with the Mini Slimline Backdrop cut in red cardstock. I then used the Polka Dot Stencil and some Delicata Ruby Red Shimmer Ink, very subtly (you can see it in the photo below), and then added the Mug from Hug in a Mug Die Set and cut the three mugs using the PhotoPlay 6 x 6 pad from my stash.
Adding some pine from the Classic Candle Die Set, and Budding Branches topped with Christmas Red Stickles! The snowflake is from A Cool Friend Die Set, spoon and "steam" are from the Cozy Cup Die Set.
Added a sentiment from Snowman Sentiments Stamp Set embossed with Red Glitz WOW Embossing Powder on a Sentiment strip from So Many Stitched Sentiment Stripes Die Set and popped it up with foam tape.

In this photo you can see the polka dots as well as the "steam" cut out of acetate!
Thank you for joining me today and the Hop!

2022 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the 2022 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
We are thrilled to have you!

The main coffee blog is here:
Thank you to Amy Tsuruta for all her hard work she does for this hop to even happen and it is all run so smoothly!

For my card today, I used very untraditional Christmas colors, but I am loving this teal/red combination!

I started with the largest Basic Rectangle die and Red cardstock for my base. Added the light teal cardstock using the largest Stitch Dot Rectangle which layers perfectly showing 1/8" of the red.
I used the Signature Polka Dot Stencil and Brutus Monroe Unicorn Horn Glitter Glaze to give that subtle snowflake look in the background.
The Red cup is cut from Hug in a Mug Die Set, which has a matching Hug in a Mug Stamp Set as well, but I find myself using the Mug die A LOT by itself! I ink blended a little Delicata Ruby Red Shimmer Ink just to give it a little depth.
I used the Cool Diamond Elizabeth Crafts Silk Fine Glitter on the Mini Bold Snowflake for a little added bling!
The greenery is Merry Mistletoe and Budding Branches with a touch of Christmas Red Stickles from Ranger.

The "steam" is from the Cozy Cup Die Set and cut in Acetate and glued using our Just Glue it Adhesive as is all of my card, but as you can see, no glue showing on that acetate!
Sentiment strip is from the Instant Photo Frame ~ I use that one a LOT! And sentiment is from Treat Yourself Holiday Stamp Set.

Now for the bird, that sweet bird is from the Tweet Bird Cage Die Set. BUT look for a set of just the birds, coming soon! We have had a lot of requests for those as a die set at shows, so Jillian said...Why not!

Enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Cat in a Basket!

Happy Friday!
How cute is this Cat in a Basket?
Who knew Cool Cat would fit in the Bountiful Basket!

Just a pretty easy Mini Slimline Card created using the Mini Slimline Backdrop, then layering the printed cardstock from my stash, using the 2nd largest die from that same set.
Added the Bountiful Basket cut with a black background so it appears the Cool Cat is filling it up!
Added the Witch Hat, sprayed with Dylusions Shimmer Spray in Crushed Grape and "boo" from the Cool Cat Die set and there is your adorable Halloween Card!
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

Jack and Cat Shaker!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!
Bunny here, just how adorable is this shaker card?

I used the Mini Slim Backdrop Die Set cut the largest in Black,  the Mini Slim Frame Die Set and the Slimline Checkerboard Cover Plate all layered to create the base.
Then cut the Perfect Pumpkin using cardstock and craft foam at the same time too create the Jack O Lantern face, layered acetate behind the top cardstock layer, then foam, filled with shaker glitter and added the back layer of the pumpkin in yellow to match the filler. Then assembled it with the Cool Cat and layered the Jack O Lantern from the Perfect Pumpkin in front!.
The photo doesn't do it justice!
