Santa's Elves (DT) Dies To Die For

To be brutal, this little Squirrel has felt totally cr@p this week.  I have had my share of cold germs over the years, but I swear they are getting more evil with each passing winter!

It's a miracle that I managed a make, but of course Birdie Brown came to the rescue.

and the ingredients for this are

Mixture of craft papers
Snowflakes stencil with Distress Inks (Broken China)
and Elf painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) as watercolours

Anyone for a tissue?  Sniff.

Trio of Trees (DT) Dies To Die For

Hello everyone!  Happy Saturday to you.
I'm here with a clean and simple but still quite classy card.
(but I must apologise for the photo quality, there wasn't a huge amount of daylight when I took this)

So, for this I have used:
MFT Clear Stamps - Trio of Trees CS-346
MFT Die-Namics - Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frames MFT-924

So, apart from Memento coloured inks for stamping the trees/sentiment, and the tiniest smidge of Distress Inks for grounding, that is absolutely it!

I am going to have another go at this one, maybe with a darker green for the trees, and heat-embossing the berries with gold instead of red ink stamping.  If it works, you might see it here soon!

As You Like It (DT) Favourite Way of Adding Snow

Morning everyone!  By now we, that's the AS YOU LIKE IT team, are hoping you are starting to get festive with your makes as our challenge for this fortnight is Your Favourite Way To Add Snow (and why).

I make a lot of cards with a vista of white, so favour adding my snowflakes by stamping with a pale blue ink, but for cards like this with a dark sky I do love to use snowflake dies, there seems to be an infinite variety of shapes and sizes so I am constantly collecting new ones!

So, for this one I have used
Background paper from The Works

Imagines painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and, if you squint, you
 might just see a sprinkling of Glamour Dust (Crystal) under their feet
(all of the linked items above are from Dies To Die For)

Our sponsor for this challenge is the fantastic

Looking forward to seeing all your snowy makes!

Toasty Greetings (DT) Dies To Die For

Morning all, I  hope you are well.  I'm a bit late today but am now popping in with a warm glow make for you.

I missed out on this set the first time around, so I have a real warm glow feeling from being able to get my little paws on it from the MFT Vault this time!  I struggle to resist Birdie Brown designs, as you might have guessed.

Images painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers).  Feeling quite chuffed with their reflected light tummies, I just hope that Snow doesn't melt too fast, but if he does, Pingu can grab his toasting stick!

I hope you are all keeping your marshmallows warm.

Sunflower Sweetheart (DT) Dies To Die For

Hello peeps, and happy Saturday to you.  It's a scheduled post today (as I'm about to dash off for a hair cut shortly).  I'm popping by with this sweetie to show that you don't have to use winter papers just for winter projects.

For this cutie I have used

Images painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers).  I'm really happy that the Lucky Clover and Fossilised Amber colours perfectly tone with these pretty papers.

Franken-Chemist (DT) Dies To Die For

Hello peeps, I'm popping by this morning very quietly, I thought had better introduce myself gently in case a belated Halloween BOO scared you too much!

MFT Die-Namics Dripping Goo Edge die (retired) but there is one from
A mixture of MFT 6x6 paper pads

All the picture elements of this were painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Which reminds me, if you heard screaming Wednesday night, it wasn't me practising, it was me being attacked by a big hairy spider, twice!  Aaargh!

Hugs all
