Ice Cream For Sure!

There is still time to join us at STAMPlorations for the November Theme And Sketch challenge!  You can use the theme or the sketch to play along.



I scream for ice cream!  Do you have a favorite flavor?  Chocolate peanut butter revel gets a vote from me...YUMMO!

This card uses the Sweet Cravings stamp set and matching die set.  I also used the ATC Tag Builder die.  Acrylic paint was used for the medium on the second layering pieces.  The ice cream cone was framed to highlight the ice cream cone and all of it's goodness...it does contain calcium!


Now I am hungry!  If you would like to save 20% on your STAMPlorations order, use STAMPGIRLJERRIE.

The Stockings Were Hung

 tags
Today's tag, inspired by Lindsey. brings back so many childhood memories.  Each Christmas our stockings were put on the brick fireplace in hopes that Santa would come and fill them to overflowing!  Santa was always very good to us!


Thans for stopping by and I hope your holiday season is magical!

Golden Reindeer

Today's golden reindeer tag is inspired by Ardyth's tag.  I love the design of the tag and the kraft paper at the top.  I drug the sewing machine out and both I and Ricky tried to thread it.  AARG, that hole in the needle is LITTLE!  My friend came by and got the job done so I could stitch around the tag.

Simon Says has a its a stitch up challenge and I decided faux stitching would not be good enough for this challenge.  Now that the machine is out and threaded...I have a few quilts to finish...hopefully the needle does not come unthreaded!

Simon Says also has a fur friend challenge and this deer fits into the challenge.






Thanks for stopping by and stitch it!

A Tag A Day

Catching up with tags for the Twenty Five Days Of Christmas Tags.  Day 13 I was inspired by Miriam's monocrome tags with triangles, different shades of color and the gold script.  Using purple and trying to vary the shades, distress ink was pounced through a triangle stencil.  The gold sentiment was added.  Then I added gold to the edge because you can never have enough gold!




Day 14 Tracy has inspired me with her wreath.  I have a double stamp wreath I have been wanting to use.  The sentiment is embossed in white and add such a festive touch to the wreath.



AAH, caught up on my tags.  Time to have a cup of coffee and wait for day 15!

Penguin Greetings

White on white with a splash of color!  A die cut piece of paper is layered on the white background.  There are white sequins layered on the white stripe.  It is a fun CAS card.

 tag
Red and white stripe paper is the base of todays Christmas tag.  Samantha had such a cute tag with a critter, stripe paper and that big eyelet to hold the ribbon is the inspiration for today.  I used clear sequins to look like snow instead of gold stars.
