Critter Christmas Cards- Maymay Made It DT Post


I asked Maymay to surprise me with  any of her awesome stamp sets to create with. I'm so glad she chose to send me Critter Christmas to play with. I had/have so many ideas to use with this set. I made two cards to share with everyone for now, as Christmas gets closer I'll share more here on my blog and in the Maymay Made It And So Did I! Facebook Group. Here are my Critter Christmas Cards, I made them A2 size which  4.25"X5.50".

Go Tail it on the Mountain-Mouse Card  

Owl Be Home For Christmas-Owl Card

Mouse Card

1. I cut the first layer at 4"X 5.25". I then added a mountain I cut out of a scrap of coordinating paper, by just rounding the top.
2. The next layer is a cut from Cricut called North Pole, it's from the Winter Frolic-Cricut Cartridge. I cut it at 7.25" in width which was way larger but I sliced it to fit my first layer, it did cut of some of the image but i was happy as long as the trees fit.  I glued the solid trees down with liquid glue, and popped the others up on dimensional tape.
3. The Mouse cut is 3.5" in height, you can find hi, on the Create A Critter 2 Cricut cartridge. I popped him up on dimensional tape also.
4. I stamped the sentiment from "Go Tail it on the Mountain" on a scrap cut it out then layered it on another scrap.
5. To tie in all the elements of the card I used only one color of Distress Ink to ink the edges of all my layers and die cut pieces. I used one of the newer Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Hickory Smoke.
6. I made a bow our of Tim Holtz Paper String, and slid it on a few pieces i had already wrapped around.
7. I wrapped some more string around the top. I then adhered the whole thing on the base with dimensional tape.

Owl Card

1. I cut two layers for this card, the first is 4"X 5.25" the second is 3.75"X5".
2. I then cut out three Owls, also from Create A Critter 2 Cricut cartridge. I cut them at 1.55" in width. I cut the first two layers with the same papers then switched up the papers for the other layers so I would have different colored owls, hats and scarves.
3. I added the owls one the second layer with dimensional tape. I then added the stamped sentiment like I did on the mouse card.
4. I  wrapped some Tim Holtz Paper String around and under the owls to make it look as if they are sitting on it. I added a bow in the left to finish the card.
5. I adhered the first layer of the card on the base with liquid glue, then added the second one with dimensional tape.
6. I used only Vintage Photo Distress Ink to ink the edges of all the elements of this card.

Brutus|Monroe Halloween Pocket Letter- DT Post

Good evening Brutus|Monroe Fans!!! I'm here to share a fun Halloween Pocket Letter I made using only Brutus|Monroe Stamps. What's a Pocket Letter?  I know a lot may already know and for those who don't I'll post a link to what it's all about toward the end of the post.
Here is my Pocket Letter:

I enjoy making Pocket Letters because you can use up all those scraps you have laying around. I used three, yes 3 Brutus Monroe Stamp Sets to make this Pocket Letter!! Here is a better view of my favorite ATC Cards.
I did a lot of fussy cutting of stamped images on Halloween patterned paper. I do this often so I didn't have to color. This is a great way to get colored images if you don't own fancy marker or aren't a good colorist.  I could go on for days with all the stamping techniques I used.  I'm going to spare the details and just encourage you to have fun with your stamps, and scraps to make a Pocket Letter of your own. 
What I used: 
-Brutus|Monroe Stamps Sets-
-Deadly Desserts
-Monster Bash
-Hello Pumpkin! 
Brutus|Monroe Premium Chalk Ink - Jack-O-Lantern 
9 Pocket Page Protector 
Momento- Tuxedo Black 
Scrap Papers & Embellishments from my Stash 

Well Pumpkins, I hope you enjoyed this project and have a Monster Bash of a Halloween and get lots of Deadly Desserts!!

Here is my treat Box:  

I used all Tim Holtz Products to create my treat box. I think I'm going to use mine as a lantern, and place a battery powered tea light candle inside. I cut out my box using my Cricut Explore, I inked it up, then adhered it together with my ATG Gun. To hold it closed i used a mini paper clip and some paper string. I added a Muse Token with some more paper string with a bow. I thin added some tape from my ATC around the front edges, and wrapped the paper string around it.

Halloween Card With Cheap Supplies


This card was inspired by a card posted by Queen & Company on FB using their new washi tapes. I loved the tapes but they are way out of my budget. I was able to get all 12 of the Dollar Tree tapes for less than 5 of the Queen & Co. ones.  You can make great things with cheap supplies!!!  I really hope you like this card. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!!

Color Me- Stamped Treat Bags- OAK Tree DT Post


I'm just dropping in to share a fast & fun Design Team Project for OAK Tree Stamps.  How cute is the Wickedly Cute stamps set and I thought, Wow! Everyone would love to color those images.  I made these for my niece and nephew, I'm sure they will get enough candy. 

All you need is some crayons, treat bags and a "Wickedly Cute" stamp set. You can use any images but these are to cute not to use. I  simply stamped the images and sentiments on white card and cut it down to fit the bag. I add the orange to give a flatter coloring surface and also because it pulls in the color of the treat bag.  I used my ATG to adhere all the layers on the bag. Added an 8 pack of crayons and closed them up with a piece of washi tape.  

What I used:  
OAK Tree Stamps-Wickedly Cute Stamps Set (LIMITED QUANTITY AVAILABLE)
Vintage Treat Bags I got at a Local Thrift Store (Any Size will work, just be sure the crayons fit)
Crayola -8 Pk - Pick Your Pack  
Orange and White card Stock 
Momento Black Ink 
ATG

Thanks For 
Stopping By For A Spell
