Isn't this paper so

Both were made using Pop-Out Folk Christmas - a wonderful set that stamps all of these darling characters, while the die cuts ALL of them at once! I just love that! I would never have chosen these colors for a Christmas card, but now that I've used them, I can't wait to use them again!

There are loads of prizes - but you must play along to WIN!
You may remember my Altenew echinacea - here is the shape they're in today:
This Nested Dome die set from Waffle Flower Crafts is a frequent flyer in my studio - isn't it fun? Here are the inks I water-colored my echinacea with today:
Here is how I keep it from rocking and rolling...
Just a quick snip from the back panel.

As much as I love that bear, I kinda wish he'd move out of the way

The fabulous team at Waffle Flower Crafts Challenge has chosen Shaker cards as their theme for October - what a fun way to shake Fall up, right? and the perfect time to use my little JOY-filled prize again as the focal point of my own shaker card!
Week 1's team wants us to use two of more sections to add shaker elements to - I have had MANY failures when it comes to shaker bits not shaking - I perhaps was asking too much of myself this time?
But it worked!!! Using their wonderful Stitched Diamond Panel Die, and a layer of foam tape on the positive parts of the panel, I was able to add these pretty little beads I bought a hundred years ago to the 'window' sections!
My JOY was cut from Neenah Solar White, and Copic colored with BG10 - then a nice coat of Wink of Stella. You'll have to take my word on that shine... but did you find the extra beads? The JOY combination set comes with a layered die set, and tons of go-along sentiments that work perfectly with JOY - like the one I used today. This time heat embossed using a glitter powder from WOW!
Thanks for stopping by, and leaving a bit of joy to my day!

- the grey print on the stocking inspired my choice of paper for my panel
- the white ornaments lead me to this retired Dove from EH
- my friend Leslie's gorgeous Stag with the stamped scene steered me to stamp on my dove!
