I used

PKKO-10 Winter Character with Hunter Hat Die and PKS-08 Penguin Boy with Bobber.

I just love the new cutting dies and stamps!  I paper pieced the hat and used liquid applique for the lining, set with a heat gun.  I added a little glitter to the iceberg and colored this cutie with Copics.  Please be sure and check out what the other designers have created here.  You won't be disappointed. 

Please welcome

Snow Globe Fun

Hello Friends!  Today I have a few ideas to share with you.  I used the Cottage Cutz Snow Globe and  Snowglobe, Winter accessories die.  This is such a fun die with so many possibilities.  I have 2 globes assembled and ready to put on a card.  While looking at the globe it reminded me of an ornament, so I used a Cottage Impressions stamp, Cardinal with Holly Stamp.  I also used the branch and ornament hook from the Winter Bird With Ornament die.

I hope you feel inspired to look at your dies and the many ways they can be used.  Thanks so much for having a look.

Hugs and Smiles,

I always try to think outside the box when I look at a sketch.  When I saw the stripes on the sketch I thought of candy cane stripes.  So from there I think, what stamps do I have that would work well with candy canes?  Of course PK-412 Too Sweet to Eat is perfect.  So I am thinking I will use some red and white strips of Christmas patterned paper for the background.  While browsing AC Moore, I saw some painted ivy bowls.  So I thought, wouldn't it be cute to paint the vase with red and white stripes and fill it with candy canes.  So that is what I did.  A fun holiday decoration and the jar was only 59 cents.  The vase is the circle with the painted stripes for the background.  The tag with the stamped ginger is the focal point..  I stamped the peppermint candies and colored them with copics.  I used a circle punch to punch the candies.  The clothes for the ginger boy were paper pieced.  I hope you will be inspired to think outside the box.  Please check out what the other designers have made here.  I look forward to seeing how you interpret the PKS sketch.  Have fun!
