The first thing I want to say is to CHECK OUT THE CLEARANCE RACK!  It has been updated again with some great discounts.

Today’s card is a Festive & Fun one.  That is the set used and a favorite with the adorable animals.  This one is To You From Me!


Stampin' Up!, Festive Fun, Merriest Trees Dies, Joy of Christmas, Blooming Pearls, Jackie Beers


The Festive & Fun stamp set is one I have used a few times.  The animals in this set are precious.  And you know I love the cute animal images.  This one I call Mr. Moose.  There was a large moose several years ago that I adored.  This one is a much smaller version but just as cute.  And him serving cake is so sweet.

The sentiment is from the stamp set also.  There is more to it than what is shown. I cut off the first part to make it fit better and it did not alter the sound of the sentiment.

Note:   I have been embossing recently and am loving it.  Previously I would never get a good image.  Well……my Versamark Ink was really old and did not improve with re-inking.  So I bought a new one.  And it is a world of difference.  The pads last a long time, but this was one I bought maybe 20 years ago.  Sometimes it is not me and actually is a problem with the tool.  Now I am loving embossing again.  The bolder and brighter sentiment is always a good thing.


The fun plaid papers are from the Joy of Christmas Designer series Paper.  I love plaid and being able to pair both the Shaded Spruce and Real Red plaid together was a good thing.  Sadly this DSP is sold out.  I apologize, but if you have it then you are good to go.  And if not then there are tons of other papers that will work just as well. And I know everyone is not a fan of plaid.

The card base is Shaded Spruce and I added a Real Red tag behind the Shaded Spruce Plaid tag.  To help the colors separate and to compliment Mr. Moose, I added a layer of Wild Wheat.  This is such a versatile color in my opinion.


The layers for this card are normal layers so I added the circle for Mr. Moose.  He is cut using the 2 3/8″ Circle Punch.  It is a tiny bit smaller than him.  But the bottom is covered by the sentiment anyway.  My favorite parts are the tags!  I love this tag.  It is a perfect size for gift tags or layers like this.  The Merriest Trees Dies is where it is from.  And I have said it before, but I am so thrilled that this bundle is carrying over.  I love those trees, but the tag is my favorite.

The sentiment I mentioned earlier.  It is simply fussy cut and raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the bottom of the circle.  Since I cut off the first couple of words it was simpler to just cut a rectangle and leave it at that.  The embossing makes it pop.

The final touch is the bling!  These are the Blooming Pearls embellishments.  There are a variety of colors but I chose the greenish ones.  They are scattered on the tag and a third one on the sentiment.
