Neat & Tangled: Moxie Fab "Stamp" of Approval

***Please scroll down for my 12 Kits of Christmas post........there is a chance at blog candy!***
Did you see the BIG news yesterday?  Neat & Tangled got Moxie Fab's "Stamp" of Approval yesterday over on the Moxie Fab World blog!  Woot, woot!!
In celebration of this news, the DT has put together some fabulous tags to spark your creativity this holiday season!  I hope you checked out the Neat & Tangled blog yesterday because there were tags showcased there. 
I've used the adorable Elves at Work for my tags.  The base of the tags is one of the Stitched Mats: Rectangles from Lil' Inker Designs.  I stamped the elves onto kraft and left them uncolored for something different since I knew I would add some scrap holiday paper I had on my desk.  Then using the Do Not Open stamp, I've stamped twice and pieced my sentiment back together.  Now I know you all have eyelets in your crafty stash, right?  It was fun to get them out and use them again! 

 I should mention that there is some **cute** digital stamps being offered over in the Neat & Tangled store that Danielle released for this BIG news!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!!

You are............

Hi everyone!  I'm glad to be back crafting after the week I "took off"!  :) 
I hope you took advantage of the sale at Neat & Tangled stamps over the weekend and snagged some of your favorites!
Today, I'm sharing a simple, simple card with you.  Using the word stamps from Kindness Matters, I created a sweet sentiment panel adding in some of the heart stamps as well. 
You are thoughtful
I also used another set, Little Tangles, for stamping my own Chevron paper and then die cutting it with an arrow die.  I love that I can highlight certain words in my sentiment this way!

That's all from me today!  Enjoy and I'll be back later this week with some very inspiring posts to spark your creativity this season!

Waltzingmouse Blog Party!

Welcome everyone!  I'm so excited to share my card today.....using some Waltzingmouse Stamps!  It's Waltzingmouse Blog Party time!!
I am very blessed to have so many things in my life......stamping friends amongst them.  It's because of the generosity of a stamping friend, I added a few sets to my WMS collection!  Thank you Joan!
I've kind of done a two-fer here and also played along with the sketch challenge!  I used the Big Blooms Chrysanthemums for my focal point of the sketch and a cute little sentiment from Teeny Trees.  I knew the minute I got this set that I would use my Distress Inks on this gorgeous flower.  Seriously, I've mentioned before that I LOVE this technique!
Give Thanks

 To frame my flowers, I added a simple scoring detail. 
Here is the sketch for this week that my card was inspired by................
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Blog Hop!

Bright Christmas

Hi everyone!  Yay for weekends!  I have an easy quick VERY mailable card for your holidays!
I've used a new stamp set from Market Street Stamps illustrated by the talented Stephanie Washburn.  It's called Shine On
I knew I wanted to have "colored" lights but didn't want to spend the time to color all the bulbs in so I used a technique I've shown before......stamping with the reverse side of your stamp!  I first stamped my string of lights 4 times to "connect" them across my card.  After stamping my lights on the string, I applied a piece of double sided tape to my clear block and turned my light stamp over to begin stamping my lights.  I did stamp off one time with each color before stamping my the lights a softer look.  When stamping this way, it gives the look of a glow to the lights!  I love how this turned very CAS.

I've added some glitter to the lights "heart" center (which is just a fantastic detail Stephanie did).  My white panel is popped up on foam adhesive but you could certainly leave that out to make it even more mailable! 
That's it for today....Hope you have a very enjoyable weekend!  I hope to get some crafty time in later today so I'll have some goodies to share on the blog this week!
