Dreams of a Starry Night

I happen to come across this card in my photo files. It was a card I had created for Memory Box's Outside the Box blog but never got to post. I die cut the birch tree twice with white and grey paper to create the tree and the shadow. The stars are pierced with a pokey tool. I raised the panel with foam tape to allow the stars to shine through.

Happy Creating!

Dreaming of Mittens

How many of you are like me and dream about cards and their creation? I dreamed this card last night. needless to say, I had to go right into my studio to make it, before I forgot the idea.

I thought about some nontraditional colors, but decided I really wanted to stick with the obvious. I love how the mittens dangle from holiday. 

I stamped the 6x6 background Nordic Stripes from Impression Obsession with distress ink, mown lawn. I die cut the holiday from the Wonderful Word set from Papertreyink. I stamped the mittens from StampinUp's make a mitten set with mown lawn and distress ink, festive berries. The stamp set has a matching punch to the mittens. The rest I think you crafty stampers can figure out. If you have any questions please let me know.

The holiday crafting season starts for real November 1, so I will be very busy over the next few months.
