Baby it's cold outside

Hi everyone!  It's Mary J here today to share this fun Christmas card...


I love this little guy!  He's from the Brrr stamp set and I also used the snowflake stamp from the set too.  Here's a look at the whole set...


Isn't it fab?  I love the little outfits and the igloo - I can see I'll be making quite a few of my Christmas cards this year using this set!  I'm off now - enjoy the rest of your day!

Frank N. Candy....good!

 The first card is just bursting at the seams with candy corn!! I also created the border with the stitching stamp. I coloured the little Frank image and cut him out to adhere him to the inside of the (after I stamped the sentiment)
 For this card I used the muffin stamp and heavily embellished it with sequins die cut stars and charcoal twine.  The cut out star was created by cutting the small star then centering a larger star over the empty star space and die cutting again.
  This guy was really fun to make since I love cupcakes and so does he.  I drew the little pumpkin face on his t-shirt  with a black Copic multi liner. The pattern papers are from a Halloween theme Project Life pack.

What the fox?

Hi everyone, it's Mary J here with a card I made using the really adorable Whimsie Doodles set called Out Foxed...


I told you he was adorable!  I coloured him in with my Promarkers and used a polka dot embossing folder for the background.

I love this set - it's got two foxes and lots of accessories and funky sentiments too.  Check it out...




This card was so much fun to make and I can't wait to make more with it!  Thanks for visiting and I'll see you again soon - ttfn!

A life she loved

I used Causal Lizzie to make this card, and the eyeglasses die from Impression Obsession. The wing tipped glasses were just begging for some bling so I dug out a bottom of gem from a nail art kit I found at Wal Mart.  They're the perfect size!

Peeking Penguins

Hi everyone! Laura here today... the Doodlelicious Divas are taking a little break for the summer, but we might just pop in every now and then with a little bit of Whimsie Doodles cuteness!

Today I'm sharing a peek at one of the newest clear stamp sets designed by Whimsie Doodles for A Jillian Vance Designs. This adorable set is called Brrr and includes 2 sweet penguins and lots of fun accessories to dress them up with!

I went pretty simple to show off the penguins and made some little gift tags...


It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas, right? :)
We have a fun little tradition in our house where every Christmas Eve the kiddos get to open one present - a new pair of PJ's. I usually do something a little special with the wrapping and make cute tags for these gifts.


My kids are also crazy little crafters like their Momma, and they love to play with my stamping supplies! They always ask me to color and cut out images for them so they can make pictures or their own cards with them. So, I thought it would be fun if the little penguins could come off the tag for them to reuse on an art project. I created a pocket on each tag, used some glittery stickers to put their names on the tags, and tucked the penguins inside!


Now they can use the little mittens, hat and scarf stamps from the set to dress up their own penguins!


I hope you are inspired to get a head start on some of your holiday crafting!
Thanks so much for visiting!

Use your words

Z Becky Brown challenged the team to decorate their handbag using text. I wanted something that would shout out "Carpe diem"  So I used on of the Ziva Papers and started pasting Project life tiles on.  I coloured the cute little "Abby Girl" digi  with copics and proceed to decorate the rest with stickers.

I've been struggling with trying to keep the letter words together and laying nice and flat then it hit me... sticky tac!! (the stuff to line your dresser drawers with) Why not treat the paper sticker like vinyl letters?  So I dug out my repositional mac tac and it worked like a charm.  The key word is "repositional" you want stuff that's not overly sticky that it will pull at your cardstock but sticky enough to temporary stick to your letters. I bet Sticky notes would work just as well. :)

Here's how to keep intact word stickers when trying to place them.
1. Clean off any access paper around and in the word.  For example the centre of the "l", "a" and "g"
 2. Peel your sticky tac and place it across your word, rub the tac gently to make sure the letters stick.  Peel the tac off pulling the letters with it.
 3. Place your word where you want it to go and rub the letters to press them onto your paper.
4. Gently peel off the sticky tac.
 5. This also works for loose letters.  Stick them together half way on the sticky tac, position where needed and pull the tac off. 
Here's a view with the handbag open.
