Welcome to the CDD Mini Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop.  All stamps are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase.

Here's what I've created for you...
I created for you this really cute hot air balloon card using the Fancy Frames to create the back drop for my card.  To create the hot air balloon I cut two circles from to design papers then cut them in form the balloon. Then I punched the white strip to cover up the two halves of the circles. Before adding the white strip to the middle I some DMC floss to make the stings for the basket.  I popped the basket up with foam tape for some demention  adding a few enamel dots for a pop of color.
I hand cut the sun and the two clouds and tucked them behind the hot air balloon and took one of the banner also from the Fancy Frames to popped it on top of the balloon.

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.

I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!

Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.

Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.

Have a great day!
