Pretty Florets and Rosettes

Hello, everyone! Happy Tuesday! Can't believe tomorrow is December. Time sure fly by so fast this year.
I got this in the mail from a blogger friend Helen. Aren't these pretty. I think she made all of these rosettes and florets. The rosettes are made out of paper and have glitters on them. So pretty IRL. The florets are crocheted. I guess she crocheted these. Very talented lady.

Here is a close up of the card. See the flower on the card? Must be a lot of work punching those petal out and put them together. So so so pretty. I love the flower, Helen, Thank you for all these goodies. Can't wait to use them on my cards.

Thank you all for visiting today. Gotta go and crochet some more hats.

Happy Stamping!

NSR: Crocheted Hats

Happy Saturday, everyone! I have a non stamping related post today for you. I crocheted these hats for my daughters and they wore them to church. I could never have guessed what happened next. People started to order these hats! It takes about two hours to crochet one. This is what is keeping me busy these days. Not many hours left in the day to do any stamping.

My husband and I went to a Couple's Retreat in Sumas, WA. last week. It sure was windy there. We both didn't have hats so I crocheted a matching colour (not style) hats for my husband and for myself to keep warm. I made a new style for myself. It looks a little like the one my daughters are wearing in the pics but it a little different. I wore it around Costco after the retreat and the ladies from my church saw me with the hat and now they all want one. Wow! Now I'm so busy crocheting hats. I might go crazy by the time Christmas comes around. Just kidding. I love to crochet so I'll never get bored of it.

Thank you for stopping by.

ETA: Sorry, I don't have a pattern for this hat. I copied a hat that I saw. Seriously, I don't even know how to read a crocheting pattern. Too confusing or maybe to lazy to learn. lol

Christmas Cardinal

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday! Happy Thanksgiving to all my US blog reader. Hope all a wonderful time with family and eat lots of turkey.

Here is Christmas card made with the set Christmas Cardinal. I coloured the bird in with a blender pen to give it a soft look. I'm not very good at colouring but I like to do it form time to time. Most of my stamp sets are ones that don't need colouring in. Just stamp and mount onto a card.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Christmas Can

Hello, everyone! Happy Tuesday. It is so cold here these couple of days but I'm glad it is sunny today. We had snow on the weekend and then it was gone. We don't get much snow here in Vancouver so when it snows it is a treat. To me it is but not so much for people who goes to work.

Here is a small paint can I picked up at the dollar store. I dressed it up with the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and then added the Tinsel Trim to the can. I used the Flower Folds bigz die and cut the Deck The Halls Designer Fabrics to make the flower. I put a Deck The Halls Designer Buttons in the middle of the flower and tied the button with the bakers twine to add a nice touch to the flower.

Thank you for stopping by!

Growing Green Birthday

Here is a card I made using the Growing Green stamp set. I embossed the Kraft paper with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I love this new folder. It is a very pretty design. I did the water colouring in the middle of the rose. It gives the rose a soft look.

Rose Wedding Card

Happy Friday, everyone! Here is a wedding card I made for my MIL for her to give away to the marry couple. She loved the card very much. I made this late at night and made two of it which I'm glad I did. I didn't have a chance to take a picture before I gave it to her so making an extra one was a good thing.
This card is a 6"x6" card. The background paper was an old one I bought long time ago and never use it until now. Yes, I hoard ummm I mean collect designer papers and it is getting out of hand. Have to use them up. They are taking up all my spaces in the house.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful long weekend!

Christmas Matchbox

Here a matchbox I made with the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper. I made the flower behind the tag from the Deck the Halls Designer Fabric. I used the left overs from another project I made for my two daughters.

I filled the box with the York mint patty. You can fill the box with anything you want. It is a wonderful little box favours. I wanted to make tags like the one shown in the Holiday Mini Catalogue p.25. I don't have that set so I could not do it. I'll have to search for my old tag set but after I moved my stamping room I'm not sure where I put it now. sigh!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Candy Cane Holder

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm glad it is Friday even though it is gloomy outside. I have been busy crocheting a lot of little hats for little girls and now I'm crocheting for adults too. I'll be crocheting for my nieces for Christmas when I'm done with all the orders.

Here is a Christmas version of the cutlery holder I made for the fall for my church Nursery Meeting. You can view it here.

I tied candy canes with Baker's twine put them inside the pocket but you can put anything you want in this holder. I got this twine from a good friend a couple of years ago and never know what to do with it until now. I punched a hole at the top so that I can hang it on a Christmas tree.
I did the ruffling look on the ribbon. I used the taffeta ribbon, fray one end, take a strand of thread and pull to ruffle it. I didn't realized I used the colours of the American flag to make this holder until I finished the project. lol

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!

This a wonderful sentiment stamp set and I love all the fonts in the set.
