Homespun Holidays – TSTR #193

Photo Inspiration #193Hello crafty friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with everything you love!  I'm sharing a little card I recently made for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room - 'Gingham Country Christmas'!

Debbie TSTR #193 (2)The Tea Room is sponsored this week by My Time Made Easy and I used the Gingham Candied Apple paper from the shop on the base of my card - LOVE!!

Debbie TSTR #193 (3)I stamped the presents and adorable little rocking horse using the Homespun Holidays stamp set and then die cut them with the coordinating Homespun Holidays Sweet Cuts die - easy peesy!  The sentiment was stamped onto a banner using the same set and then double mounted on a base of Kraft cardstock!  The tree was die cut from aqua glitter chipboard using a die from PTI and then I added some homespun cotton lace trim, burlap ribbon bow and a couple of delicious Rusty Jingle Bells!

Debbie TSTR #193 (1)Please be sure to visit The Shabby Tea Room to be inspired by the rest of the teamies gorgeous projects this week, and then I hope you'll have time to give our 'Gingham Country Christmas' challenge a try for a chance to win an awesome prize package from My Time Made Easy!

I decided that I am going with an aqua, red and cream color palette for my main holiday card this year!  I adore these colors together!!  I have about 30 cards made ... 30 more to go!  Off to get a couple more made ...

Inspired by these lovely challenges: Merry Monday #84 - trees with bling; Word Art Wednesday #106 – anything; Festive Friday #21 – red/aqua/white; Ribbon Carousel #87 – holiday/celebration; There She Goes #234 - winter fun

Thanks for stopping by today ... hugs - xoxox

Paper Sweeties November Release Rewind!

I hope you found some inspiration in the projects the teamies and I have shared with you over the past four days for the November *new* product release here at Paper Sweeties!  Before we wrap up this month's release and move forward looking to December, we have just a couple more cards and gift ideas to share to help spark your holiday creativity!
I created little 3" x 5" 2014 calendars to give this Christmas as stocking stuffers and hostess gifts!  I used various different stamp and dies from the Paper Sweeties line up to add a different image and sentiment to each of the months.  I've shared 9 months of inspiration for this month's release and will be sharing the final 3 months at the beginning of December for our next release ... yes Paper Sweeties fans, we will be releasing all of the new in December products on 12/1 so you don't have to wait until the middle of the month for our regularly scheduled release!  This way, you'll get an extra three weeks of paper crafting in before the big day arrives!  Mark your calendars, bookmark our site, follow us on Bloglovin' (link on sidebar -->) so you won't miss a minute of the fun!
