Kitty Bee Designs - November Spotlight!

Hello everyone, I hope you're having a great weekhave a super fun Kitty Bee spotlight card for you today from the FANTASTIC Kitty Bee Designs. I am SO in love with all of these little Panda darlings. Ok, fine, I'll be honest - I love all of the darlings. If you are new to Kitty Bee, you HAVE to check them out. Seriously. They are adorable and awesome to color; the shapes and designs lend themselves to all kinds of color and sketch combos!

Check out this adorable Pumpkin Panda. Yes...Pumpkin. Panda! He's so much fun! My son came in while I was coloring and he said "oh that's a really cute panda stamp, I like it!".

Not sure if you saw my blog post the other day, but I have officially declared Halloween cards continue to be both acceptable and ENCOURAGED, because Halloween is awesome ALL the time. After Thanksgiving I will change gears, but until then, I saw Halloween away! It's my favorite holiday, so I'm all about the celebration. There's no better way then with a panda playing dress-up:

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous day and stamp happy!

Imagine That Digistamp - November Challenge Mid-Month Inspiration

Good morning my dear stamping friends! I'm so happy it's the weekend!

Today I have a new Design Team project to share with you from Imagine That! DigistampITD has a monthly challenge that begins the first Saturday of every month. If you create a new project using ITD images, you will receive the Featured Set of the Month FREE, just for playing along! The challenge "theme" is Anything Goes (my favorite, you know). This month's FS is the super cute "Reindeer Carols"...just in time for your Christmas cardmaking needs! There is also a matching 3D Kit to accompany this set, you can find it in the store HERE.

We are about halfway through the challenge, so you have a few weeks left to play along! The linkup closes on DECEMBER 1ST, so head over to the Creative Playground and link up your project HERE.

On to my inspiration!! Today I used the Reindeer Carols set, I couldn't resist those sweet faces! I love the floating music notes and the old-fashioned lamp post they are gathered around. 

I also incorporated one of the printable digital papers included in the Poinsettia 3D Kit. Die from MFT, red velvet bow, snowflake gem, and snowflake sequins are from my stash and are probably 10 years old! Sheet music embossing folder from Darice.

That's it for me today! Be sure to check out the Creative Playground for more ITD inspiration, and get your crafty on for your chance to receive our current FS for free!

Fancy Fold Blog Hop with Imagine That Digistamp

Happy Thursday crafters!!  

Welcome to my stop on the "Fancy Fold Blog Hop" with  Imagine That DigistampsWe hope you will be inspired to try some of these card folds, treat boxes or other 3D projects which is perfect timing with Christmas right around the corner!

I made an Easel Card using the Red Nose Reindeer digi set (in shop HERE). I followed this easy tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. I LOVE Easel Cards, they are fun to make and they look like a million FANCY bucks when finished. When I need to step out of my comfort zone of.... "Standard A2 Card", LOL, I reach for ideas using this type of project layout first!

Here's a view of my card, this is the finished product, but it's closed. If I were to mail this or give it to someone, when they took it out of the envie, this is what they would see.

Then....the magic happens! Final, finished card, standing up in Easel form. This image is perfect for Easel cards. PERFECT. You can crank out a whole pile the MOST AMAZING Christmas cards for everyone on your list in a matter of hours. I used the pre-colored version of the most adorable Rudolph ever for this project. Try it, you'll love it, I guarantee. Impress your friends! ;)

Thanks for joining us on our Fancy Fold Adventure today! I hope that you've been inspired. 

Be sure to start at the Creative Playground!! Here is a full list of the hop....
