Our Creative Corner challenge - Have Yourself a Merry LITTLE Christmas

At Our Creative Corner,  the challenge was for ATC's or ATB's (Altered Trading Cards or Blocks)  I was making a few ATC's with papers from Whimsey Stamps and leftover snowflakes using Festive Flurry stamps and dies from Stampin' Up.  I added Scripty Joy from Lawn Fawn.

Deconstructed Sketch 179

Got a chance this week to play a little so I thought I would join the Deconstructed Sketch challenge.

 I used Snow Day paper from Lawn Fawn and the the stamps and Lawn Cuts are all from Lawn Fawn.  The hat and iceberg from Critters in the Arctic and then Winter Penguin.

The bow is tied with Lawn Fawn Gold sparkle cord.

The reason for Christmas.

One of my favorite blogs to peruse daily, Linda's, who is utterly amazing and a member of Spellbinders  International Ambassadors team and also has her own Facebook group,  I Love My Die Cutting Machine.  A few weeks back she used Spellbinders Labels 40 in one of her cards.  I fell in love with them.  So I ordered the Decorative Elements set.    I used them on this card I made with an older stamp from Embossing Arts (probably had this stamp for 10 years or so)  that I just love because it shows the reason for Christmas.

White on White Challenge

At the  Lawnscaping Blog, the challenge this week was White on White.  I really wanted to play along, but wasn't sure what I was going to do.  Yesterday I ran to my local stamp store, Stampadoodle and they know I love Lawn Fawn stamps and Lawn Cut dies.  One of the girls and I went to look at what was in and talk about our favorites and  they had the lawn cut die in for the goodie bag and also the word Joy.  Yep, bought them both.  

So this morning, I made the goodie bag.  The goodie bag die is easy to use and the lines are easy to fold on.
Goodie Bag Die

I grabbed some snowflake stamps from the sets Critters in the Arctic and Deck the Halls and embossed them with Winter White embossing powder.  I used some glitter glue on the joy die cut just to give it a little glitter.  I tied it with some white ribbon.  These are perfect size to have in the tree for small presents.  I have also decided to use these to make Valentines goodies for the 3 yr. old nephew to give to his preschool classmates.
