Snow One Like You…

Hello Friends,
Christmas was a huge success at our house…and I hope you can say the same!
It’s time to jump back into the world of card making and post something that is long over due!
It’s my turn to posting a card for our theme this month which is….
Snowman or Snowflakes. 
I have this great snowman set from Gina K Designs
called Snow One Like you! and I have had it for quite a while,
and it was way past time for it to get inky!
I still need to work on my sponging technique…this has been something
I have always struggled with!  I also used colored pencil to color my snowman.
Hope you have a wonderful day and find sometime to be creative!
Any questions at all…..stop on by my blog at

Snowmany Thanks

Happy Holidays crafty pals! For those of you celebrating Christmas, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time! Thia here, from Blue Moon Creation with my post for this months theme Snowflakes/Snowpeople. I picked both. I absolutely love how easy it was to get this card together! It’s a shaker card too! I love using double sided foam adhesive by Scotch on my cards, and that it what I used to create this card I am sharing with you now.

This card is a thank you AND a holiday card. The sentiment on the inside was created with Get Inky stamps by Blue Moon Creation. (Yes, I have a photopolymer stamp line! Click HERE to see what’s available.)
Here’s a close up of the snow shaker part of my card:
To create this card, I used my Recollections Festivus Paper Stack and cut out the sentiment to make a window for the snow. I placed the sentiment on using double sided foam adhesive. Added a snowflake button and some gems. Made the shaker added foam balls and adhered this to the decorative card base with double sided foam adhesive. Fun card, right?! Until next time, happy crafting!

Baby it’s Cold Outside

Hi everyone!

Today I’m a guest designer on the Crafty Card Gallery Blog, and I’m here to share a colorful mixed media, snowman/snowflakes card I made. It has been very cold outside, so I got inspired and here’s what I came up with….

Snowflake Paperbag Card

Hi everyone!!! It’s me Tonya!!! Can you believe it is only a week and a day and it will be Christmas!?!!?!? Are you ready??? Me? I finished my shopping today so all I need to do is wrap presents and if possible knock out a few handmade projects for some extra special people on my list.
Well, I’m here to share a card I created using a mini paperbag. All you have to do is fold the end of the bag to were it fits under the flat of the “bottom” of the bag. Next cut cardstock to fit each fold/flap of your card. I inked all edges of the cardstock before adhering to the card.

I used my Cuttlebug snowflake diecut and cut one snowflake from velum and the other one from cardstock which all the cardstock and chipboard snowflake is from the Winter Collection(Russia) from the Robin’s Nest and the Deco Snowflake sticker are from Ecstasy Crafts.

Now if you want to you can add a sweet little goodie inside the bag. Won’t that be a sweet surprise???

Supplies Used:
Deco Snowflake sticker 
Versa Magic Ocean Depth Chalk Ink
Cuttlebug Snowflake Diecut
Mini Paperbag
If you have any questions let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!

Snowman Post

Hi Everyone!
Have you been working frantically on your Christmas cards?  Do you have a really long Christmas card list?  I think I need about 60 cards this year…. and I’m a few short… so I’ll be making some more cards this week (in addition to finishing up my Christmas shopping)… Oh well, what would I do if I wasn’t behind???

Well this year I did something different… Every year I mass produce my Christmas card – I make 60 of the same card….   This year I made a bunch of different cards.   I got an SEI card kit that was too cute not to make – so then I bought some cute papers and then some other stuff.. so I have a bunch of different cards.  I think it was more challenging to make them all but I don’t know that I will do it this way next year.

So my snowman card is one where I borrowed a stamp from a friend – I’ve been trying to do some Tim Holtz stuff since I find it very challenging….  I don’t know that I’ll want to give this card away though.. .:)

And here’s the SEI snowman card

Hope you enjoyed my Snowman cards!  Have a wonderful christmas & happy 2014!!!!
