I love the patterned paper animals that Meg did for this card. And what a fun way to use scraps of paper too!

Here’s what Meg did:

  1. Stamp “All the Animals Stacked Up” on October Afternoon and Stampin’ Up patterned paper and heat embossed with black (makes it a bit easier to see on the patterned paper and to cut out).
  2. I stamped the entire image onto Papertrey Ink Ripe Avocado and cut it out, leaving a small border and adhered each animal using Xyron adhesive.
  3. I stamped the message (also from ECG) onto some kraft and added some Peeled Paint distress ink.
  4. The whole stack was popped up with dimensionals onto some Echo Park Christmas paper, bordered with Ripe Avocado and kraft.

jinah-postit-1-smThis is the cutest little project. Jinah created post-it note holders. She actually used just one stamp and cut the images apart. If you need a cute little anytime gift this would be perfect.
She started with patterned papers for the covers and then used watercolors to color everything in. She added bits of gloss for accents (see the reindeer’s nose).

jinah-sweaters-smJinah made a little card using just two stamps. Sometimes just stamping on paper and coloring can be so nice.

Tune in tomorrow when we share another post from Jinah using one of these same stamps in a completely different way.

winterbook-full-smI worked on this for quite some time and FINALLY finished. I was inspired by a project that Cathrine over at Paper Garden Projects created last year (I believe).
winterbook1
I started with chipboard shapes and covered each with a different piece of paper. I added snow with some white molding paste and before it dried sprinkled it with glitter. For the ice on the skating pages I used Diamond glaze. I made all the backgrounds first and then added the little kids and such on top. It was a labor of love for sure.

I think Annie and I had the same idea!annie-ornament-sm
Using a little clear top tin she made this Paw Humbug ornament. She cut everything out, put it inside and before she closed it with a ribbon, added a little bit of snow. :)

In this one, I used Little Cora. I cut out some “hills” and covered them with snow. I put a stick-on snowball in her hand and a few tiny ones in the background.
