Christmas Penguin

Here is the last of the Whimsie Doodles Tis the Season images that I created cut files for. And of course my favorite out of all of them 'The Penguin'. Really simply layered, and pop dots added to the scarf, nose and feet for dimension.

Merry Christmas,

Gingerbread Man

Here is another image from the Whimsie Doodles Tis the Season images. The GingerBread Man, I took all his layers and turned them into cut images and away I went cutting them out on my Cricut.

I put One-step crackle medium onto the white icing images to give him the look of real glossy icing. His smile was hand drawn and glitter buttons in place to look a like gum-gums.

A very simple card but he looks so darn adorable!

Rudolf, Up, up, and Away!

Here is another image from Whimsie Doodles 'Tis the season images.

I took the reindeer image and turned it into a cut image. I made the outline of the body and once again, layered the additional images with designer paper. His head, nose and scarf are all pop dotted for added dimension.

I flocked the horns with Recollections Banana Flocking. I need to mention after using this product I will never use it again. It was very hard to get out of it's container, and it was so clumpy. I ended up lathering glue onto the horns and then having to push the flocking to adhere it. Horrible stuff! (This is my personal opinion) 

I am almost caught up, only a few more post to go. Thanks for dropping in,

WinterSong Snowman

I absolutely love Whimsie Doodles digital images, this cute snowman is from the Whimsie Doodles 'Tis the Season images set.

As many of my followers know I am getting very good at making my own cut files and that is exactly what I did with this image.
I first made my outline of the snowman to create my card base, and all the layers were cut individually to make all the remaining layers.

I also added some embossing to the red ribbon on the top hat with the swiss dots folder. Then added pop dots to the bird's wing and his scarf for dimension.

I have a few more to blog so keep checking, I'm trying to catch up.

Bye for now,

Merry Ruffmas

It's 9 days till Christmas, I'm back today with this cute doggy Christmas Card.

The dog was cut from the Create A Critter cartridge. I embossed him with the Swiss Dots embossing folder to give a bit of texture. And sponged the edges with SU! Chocolate Chip ink to give him some definition and pop dots were added for him to stand out more.

The presents are cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge. I used various left over scraps of Christmas paper, to get all those lovely colors of the presents. The greeting was from a font on my computer, and for the tips of the wording I added some Diamond Stickles.

Have a good weekend everyone,

Winter Fun

Hi Everyone,

Wow it really does seem like forever since I blogged, and yes it has been forever. I have been busy for the past couple of months, 1 was to get ready for my craft sale and 2 was to fill orders that I received from my craft sale. So with that said I still have not had the chance to work on my own personal Christmas cards that I'd like to send out to family and friends and I'm running out of time.

But here is one card I am happy to share with you, it is for an order. My customer wanted a money holder type card but a card that can also be displayed as a Christmas ornament afterwards. Like always a little challenging especially when you don't know the person receiving it personally.

Oh boy, has my Cricut sure gotten a workout from this season. I have created most of my cards cutting with it. On this card I used the Winter Frolic cartridge and gave it lots of layers, and lots of pop dots, just how I like it. You can never use enough pop dots!

Off for now thanks for popping in and hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more of me.
Season's Greetings....
