Punch Art Polar and a Stamp or 2

New Stamp Release
 
I got some new Scrappy Moms Stamps in the mail last week and went straight to my paper! This card took no time at all to whip together, maybe 20 minutes.  I ran the silver paper through my snowflake folder (the one that comes with the Tim Holtz Snowman folder) and the snowflake is cut on grunge from the Winter Wonderland die with some crackle white paint.  I made the card to 5x5 cause I was feelin crazy:)
 
For the sentiment I grabbed "Here comes Santa Paws" from the Critter Crazy set stamped and clear embossed.  I popped this little guys head up too and layered his behind in a paper snow mound.
 
*Fun Fact* Did you know is Churchill Manitoba is the Polar Bear Capital of the World and it is the law to leave your doors unlooked.  Just incase someone needs to duck in to get away from a Polar Bear.  Cool EH!

 
I used 1 3/4" round SU punch for the head and body, 3/4" round SU punch for the ears and the middle oval SU punch for the snout.  Just cut on a slight curve for the snout.
 
Don't forget the inside.  This sentiment is from the new Christmas Cheer.

 
For the border, I punched the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo layered with the blue and white card stock, then added some glitter glue.  A little TH Tinsel is added for bling.

 
Don't forget the button nose and ink in some dot eyes.  Tear your paper to make snow mounds and add some more sparkle for the snow.

 


 
"Dear Santa, I can explain..." is my fav from the Christmas Cheer set.  I'm going to have some fun with that!

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
