Adorable Santa from the Christmas Bobbleheadz set. I couldn't get a good shot of his eyes and sparkly beard (I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen) but you can see a little of the glossy accents on the word 'believe'.

Melonheadz Friends, Off to the Beach

Hello and welcome to a new week, and a new challenge. This week's theme is "off to the beach". I love love love the beach, but in the desert it is hard to find! LOL So any chance to use beachy themed products is a little vacay in my mind. LOL I sure miss being able to walk to the beach any time I want to. But I digress.......

For this card I used this toes in the sand image from the Melonheadz digi set, Beach Vacation. The sand and water images are also included in this set.

The beach is truly my happy place. :)

Join us for this fun challenge at Melonheadz Friends and you could win a digi set by the fabulous Nikki C!

MFT Camp Create, Day 5 Spectacular Shakers

Shakers are so much fun to make. I used the MFT Tiki Party stamp set for my last day of camp creation. Yes, that is real sand paper! I love using it on beachy theme projects. Cuts like a dream with dies. Neat effect.

 I might have filled the shaker too full. But you can still see the volcano peaking up a little, right?

You can see the volcano and lava a little better in this picture. I used stickles for the lava.

MFT Camp Create, Day 4 Delightful Diecutting

Happy Friday Eve! :) And welcome to day 4 of Camp Create with My Favorite Things. Today's focus is on dies. I love dies. I think you all know that by now! For my card today I used The Whole Herd stamps and dies from MFT.

Here you can see the partial die-cutting technique. Note only the tops of the cow and chicken are cut out, then layered over the hay stacks behind.

I also cut several of the cow and chicken and layered them as well. The front panel is adhered with foam tape for even more dimension.

Inside sentiment is from the MFT Somebunny set.
