Do I smell Cake

Cathy here to interrupt your normally scheduled Christmas/Winter post to  sneak this in....
Over at Lost Coast Designs they have some cat and dog stamps by KatzelKraft. They are so cute. I just had to pop over here and show you what I made..
The saying is from Carmen's Veranda. I had the saying and it just felt like the two go together.
Please take a look when you are shopping for your Lost Coast and Carmen's Veranda stamps at the new additions of KatzelKraft . You will be happy you did.
Now back to your regular scheduled program........

Joyful Tag

Today I made a tag for Christmas. I started off with a number #10 size office tag. I grabbed some Christmas colors of the Distress Oxide inks. (greens and reds and black for splatters) I took my craft mat and smooched the inks on it added water and put my tag in it. Dried one color and moved on to the next. When I'm happy with that I take the black ink and make splatters over the tag, set aside to dry.
Next take Mistletoe Goth and stamp her on Copic friendly paper with black ink and then I colored her with Copic markers and then trimmed her down and cut her out

Now back to the tag. I took the small snowflake stamp set and Versa mark ink and stamped it on the tag. Then I used white embossing power on it.
Layering is the next step. I had some black paper on my table and I had my Christmas paper and washi tape on there too. I added the black and Christmas paper on the side. Added Mistletoe Goth to the middle and added washi tape to the top and bottom of Mistletoe Goth stamped image.
Last I added a Christmas token with some sparkle ribbon to the tag. Also added sparkle ribbon to the top. I call it done.
Please stop by Lost Coast Portal and play along with are Winter/Christmas challenge this month.

Raven's Winter

Can you believe it is Dec. 6th already.My idea when I made this it would go well for a  Winter Solstice card.
  Frist off I stamped  raven small right and left on the bottom of my white card panel. There are two sizes of the raven so if you wanted a larger ravens you can do that.

After that I picked out 3 different colors of Distress inks. I picked a blue, purple and a gray. Then I took my small snowflake set and stamped them in different inks all over the panel. Guess what?  Well they have a large snowflake set too. So you have you choice of sizes. Large or small or a mix of both.
Then I distressed the edge of the white panel. Inked the edge of it with the gray ink and set aside.
 Next I took a black cardstock and made a top folding card. Grabbed some more of the snowflakes from that set. Can you believe there is 8 different snowflakes in that set. WOW. I stamped them in Versa fine ink and embossed them with white embossing power.
Came back to the panel and colored in the ravens with Copic markers and added a hat to the left raven. Wrapped white and silver bakers twine around the top and added a word token to it. Just to add some sparkle to it I added sliver tinsel to where the word token is.
Added foam tape the added it the black card and done.

 I hope to see what you all are doing for your winter/Holiday cards over at the Portal.
