Pinata Squidgy ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you. Last Thursday was my daughter's 7th Birthday and a few months back she said she would like a piñata for her Birthday. We planned her Birthday where they don't have the option to have it so I ordered this totally awesome Pinata Squidgy rubber stamp and made a piñata card for her.

I chose happy and bright colours for her. Image was coloured using Distress ink pads. Sentiments come from different stamp sets (also from Stamping Bella).

I decorated the card with a few die cuts, white gel pen and glitter.

Tiny Christmas ☆ C.C. Designs

In September I made a Christmas candy holder tutorial with the image from Tiny Christmas. Before making that tutorial I made one sample just to check out if all the measurments are ok and if it looks ok. I'm a bit of a control freat, I admit that. lol

So here's the first Christmas candy holder featuring a super cute deer from the Tiny Christmas clear stamp set.

Image was coloured using Distress ink pads on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper. I cut it out using matching outline dies. Sentiment comes with the images.

Design papers are from Doodlebug. All dies used are from C.C. Designs.

There's enough space to add some candy inside. Wouldn't this make a perfect Christmas prezzie for co-workers and friends?

Ski Edwin With Snowflakes

Today I'm sharing with you a Christmas card. I used two of my old Magnolia images (Ski Edwin With Snowflakes & Old Swedish church - A Christmas story 2012). I didn't masked them together because I wanted to create some dimension.

Papers used are from Maja Design and dies from la-la land crafts and Magnolia.

Both images were coloured up using Distress ink pads on watercolour paper. Sentiment is from Magnolia too.
