DT Kerry - Christmas

Its that wonderful time of the year where everywhere you look you see Christmas.  I love this time of year however its very busy with my son and myself also having birthdays (2 days apart) in the month of December.  None the less, it would have to be my favourite time to use all those crafty products out there to create something cute and Christmas-y.

The card I have created for you today I did using a new Lawn Fawn die set called "Large Wreath".  Its super adorable to create wreaths in any colour and to decorate as much or as little as you want.  For mine, I couldn't resist adding little sparkly diamontes as the baubles :)

I die-cut a piece of plaid card from the Lawn Fawn 6x6 paper pad with a rectangle die.  I die-cut the leaves of the wreath with Neenah solar white card and coloured them using Copics (G02 & YG09).  I cut a circular piece of fun foam with using the circular die in the set and cut some older woodgrain card and placed this behind the wreath prior to adhering down the leaf pieces to the fun foam to give it some dimension and to sit off the page.

I stamped the "reindeer" onto some Neenah cardstock with Momento Tuxedo black ink and coloured using Copics, fussy cut and stuck him down using a glue dot.

With it being a Christmas card I wanted extra sparkle so I cut out the "Celebrate" from some American Crafts glitter cardstock and again, a piece of fun foam using MFT die-namics.  Glued these together to create my own "thicker" and adhered this to the front.

Adding some additional gel pen to the eyes and nose to blacken these up and I was done.

Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas!

Christmas Planning with DT Deni

Good Morning :-)

Auzz Trinklets N Crafts This month are playing around with Christmas. I decided to do something new to me and use some of my new stamps to do a layout in my Planner.

I decided for 2018 I was going to move onto a Kikki K Planner, I ordered both a Large and a Personal. My personal is in my handbag and has all my day to day family and personal stuff and my Large I am using for my Design Team stuff and my Card Business. I am thinking about using another Large for my Card orders lol.. not sure if I can make three work yet but we will see how I go.

I wasn't a big fan of the Kikki K Inserts, they just didn't work for me and my needs so I ordered some planner inserts from Chasing Planner Peace, she has an Etsy Page and a Website.

I have used a stamp set from My Favorite Things called Polar Bear Pals & Matching Dies, which I stamped out using Memento Tuxedo Black onto PPS Copier Labels (Full Sheet). I then ran them through my Sizzix Big Shot with the matching dies.

I cut the Simon Says Stamp Winter Snow Word Dies and the My Favorite Things Snow Capped Mountains from American Crafts Cardstock using Sizzix Big Shot.

I coloured all the stamped images using Faber-Castell Polychromos. I have most of those listed below. This was actually my first time using the pencils and I was quite happy with them.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).
