Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a happy turkey day, everyone!  Are you busy preparing the feast?

I have a card to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Acorn from Thankful set was stamped first.  Then I masked off the outline of the acorn and stamped Nina's Texture Tiles: Be Cute to fill the inside of the acorn. I used Avery Elle Holiday Fill in the blank stamp with die to create the sentiment.

May your holidays sparkle

Hi, I am sharing a card on Poppy Stamp Blog today using new release Holiday Village stamp and a sentiment stamp.  

I stamped Holiday Village repeated in red to create the background. The sentiment was embossed in white on red cardstock.  Some Studio Calico wood veneer stars were dipped in Delicata Golden Glitz ink before adhereing.

Avery Elle Fill in the Blank Holiday Gift Set

Today I am sharing a gift set made with Avery Elle, Cheers die, Holiday Fill in the blank dies and the stamp set. The wine tag was cut with Cheers die and embellished with Fill in the blank words die and Holiday Fill in the blank die.

Those wine charms are easy and quick to make and yet festive.  I die cut the circles from felt, and then cut the Holiday Fill in the blank in the middle of the circles. Then I used scissors and cut one opening, so it can fit on the wine glass.

The card was made with the leftover dies.  I was playing around and one of my kids said "it's a Christmas tree".  I also added a few die cuts from Simply Tag Christmas set.


Have a great day. Stop by Avery Elle blog for more inspiration.

Avery Elle Winter Wreath

I have another Christmas card to share. I used Winter Wreath set, the bow from Simply Tags: Christmas set and the banner from Build A Banner set.

I adhered some glitter with a fine glue pen to the wreath and the berries. The card stock is Silver Fox. Love this color.  It is my current favorite color.


This card is entered into Simon Says Keep it clean and simple challenge.

Moxie Fab Thanks!


Cath, Trend editor for Paper Crafts Magazine is leaving Paper Crafts Magazine.  Besides being shocked, I  really can not image the paper crafts community without Cath.  Keren Baker has an great idea of a blog hop to thank Cath for what she did for the years. You should come from Lenny's blog.

Moxie Fab World is one of the first blogs I found when I started my paper crafting journey. Cath has such a wonderful talent to recognize good design and trends.  She always encourages, inspires, and recognizes how special each one of the crafters are.  There were so many occasions that I was not sure about my design and Cath left sweet and heart warming notes of encouragement.  Cath is the Moxie Fab World. 


Thank you, Cath, for all the inspiration and encouragement you've shown us all over the years. MFW has played a huge part in my growth and learning as a papercrafter and I'll be forever grateful for that. I wish you all the best in your new life adventures and thanks again for all you've done!

Your next stop is Berenice.

Avery Elle: Warm Wishes

Have you started your holiday cards yet?  I have been making a few. Here is one more to add to my stash.
I used Avery Elle Let It Snow set.  The birch tree image can fit on an A2 card vertically.  If you know me, I like to find different ways to use my supplies.  I changed the orientation and made a landscape A2 size card. I stamped the tree twice in white. The stamped images were dried using heat tool completely before the snow was embossed.  I added glitter to clear embossing powder using 1: 1 ratio before heat embossing.  The snow is iridescent. It is not easy to capture in on the photo.
