Sasayaki Glitter Reminder post, NOVEMBER 2018

Hello all!  I hope you are all doing well.  We had one HECK of a snow storm two Thursdays ago, which made it very treacherous to drive home.  I have to drive over a couple of mountains to get to and from work, and I definitely needed an alcoholic drink when I finally did get home!  LOL!

Anyway, I am here to share my card with you for the Sasayaki Glitter November reminder post, and here it is:

I decided I wanted to make my reminder card using an image and sentiment from the *NEW* clear stamp set that is available in the Sasayaki Glitter Etsy shop here.  This is Naz's first foray into clear stamps, and they were so easy to stamp!  I colored the image up with alcohol markers, with the aim of matching the peachy patterned paper.  In the end, I think I should have gone a different route, as her dress and tights look the same as her skin!  Live and learn!

Christmas Crafts All Year Round Mid Month November DT Post

Hello, friends!  Welcome to my blog today!  I am here to share with you what I made for the current CCAYR challenge to use Gingerbread:

I had printed out this cutie patootie Bugaboo image (which I can't find in the store ATM) when I created a bunch of digi stamp sheets for some projects.  This little ginger girl is adorable!  I knew that I wanted to use my 12x12 Mrs.Claus's Kitchen DCWV paper pad with this image, and when I leafed through it, I discovered this page full of recipe cards, one of which was this one.  PERFECT!!  I matted it on a brown cardstock from my stash, and then tried to figure out what size card to put it on.  The standard 4.25 x 5.5 was too small, so I tried my other go-to size, 5.5 x 5.5.  Still too small.  So I dug out a business envelope, measured it, and made a card to fit.  I used the same brown cardstock to cover the card front, and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.  It kinda reminds me of the edges of a baked gingerbread cookie!  I decided that the edge of the image circle needed some color as well, so it got the same treatment. 
The card looked a bit plain, so I added some white dash lines around the edges, using my ruler to keep them straight.  I adhered the image to the recipe, and then popped up the whole thing with fun foam, at a small angle.  Ginger girl's cheeks also got some white dots.

It's time again for another Sasayaki Glitter Design Team Post!

Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well this evening.  Things here in the Bingaman household are pretty status quo.  We are gathering up items for Thanksgiving dinner, and I am looking forward to going shopping afterward.  :)  It's a crazy day, for sure!  In the meantime though, here is what I made for the current Sasayaki Glitter challenge theme of "TRAVEL."

With things getting down to the wire as far as making Christmas cards goes, I was really hoping that Naz had an image of Santa's sleigh.  She did, thank goodness!  I had fun coloring this image up in traditional reds and greens, with lots of sparkle added from Stickles and sparkle pens.  I grabbed a piece of patterned paper from my newly acquired Say Freeze 12x12 Recollections pad for the background, and used a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Cheery Christmas.
