Here's what I've created for you today...
 
  
 
Some fun Christmas ornaments.  I used our Chill Out stamps set and the Snow Palace sequins along with the Outdoor Landscape Dies.  I stamped the three adorable penguins on watercolor paper with black ink and heat emboss them with clear embossing powder.  I colored these using watercolor markers.
 
Next I cut the base pieces in a scallop. Layering a piece of snow design paper in the shape of a circle on top. I cut the snow banks out of white card stock layering a couple together to add some fun dimension. 
 
I added some glitter to all of the white bands on the two Santa hats and wink of Stella glitter pen to the hats, scarves and ornaments in the images. Then I added a sentiment to each of the scenes along with a punched blue snowflake from glitter paper.
 
 
To finish them off I did a random sprinkling of the Snow Palace sequins and tied a white string to hang these cuties up. I think these would make a great tag for Christmas packages or fun gift to give for those Christmas parties.

Here is the project I made!
 
 
 
I made these cute tags!  I did some background stamping on two of these tags and use a checked design paper for the other one. 

 
On this tag I used a polka dotted background stamp for the main image on this tag.  Each tag is 2 3/4 inches wide.  I cut each one with my paper trimmer.  I free handed the toppers and used a punch for the scalloped bottom.  Punched a snowflake and took some of the freedom sequins and pulled out the red and silver and sprinkled them about.  The added one of the sentiments from the Snowman Kisses Stamp set.

 
 
On this tag I used a green plaid design paper as the tag base.  I cut a fishtail bottom on this for some added interest.  I used the Outdoor Landscape dies to make two snow banks for my snowman to sit on.  The snowman is from the Snowman Kisses Stamp set I colored him very simply with markers.  I also added the snowflake and sequins to this one as well.

 
 
This tag is just like the first one only I used different background stamp and little different topper on top.
 
Here are all the CDD products I used:

My love for you is deeper than the ocean

Hello everyone, this is Michelle here with Kennedy Grace Creations with a baby card to share with you today.  I knew when I saw these adorable sea creatures I just knew they had to be made in to a baby card.


 
 
I cut two different polka dotted baby papers and using the Outdoor landscape dies I cut the waves three different times once in blue, once in vellum and once in the light green polka dots.  I then adhered them staggered on the light blue background cardstock so you can see three different waves. 

 
 
I stamped the sentiment from the Under the sea as well as using the super cute critters from that stamp set.  I stamped several of the critters on as well as the water droplets on watercolor paper and colored them very softly using distress markers.  

 
I them added all my creatures on top and tucked in the waves then added some of the soft green sequins from the Star Power sequins set.  I love how the green matched my the green in the creatures.  I love how this came out. 
 
 
Here are the stamps and dies I used and you can find these and so much more at the Craftin Desert Diva's Shop.



 
You can purchase these dies here.

 

 
 

 
 
 
I hope you enjoyed my card today!  Thank you for stopping by!!

Here is the card I made...
 
 
I  made a beachy birthday shaker card!! I used three different circle dies to cut three different size circles to create my fun beachy scene.  In the largest circle I used an image from the Beachy Pals Stamp set. Coloring it with Copic Markers. 

 
The Sentiment and two fishes is from the Under the Sea Stamp Set. I added some seed beeds and some confetti stars I punched out of colored card stock and a splash of enamel dots in fun brigh colors to finish the card off.
