Addicted to Figgy Pudding....


I'm soooooo in love with the new Basic Grey Figgy Pudding line!!! The colors are really pretty and there is one sheet of 36 different papers in the pack!!! Of course the sheets are only 6x6, so you really have to save your scraps, but it's soooooo worth it!
-
For the first card I used stamps from A Cat's Pajamas... they have such fun and funky little stamps. The cat is stamped in black versafine, then colored with prisma pencils. There is a little falling snow that was done with irridescent stickles.
-
The faux stitching is Daisy D stitch rub-on tape - really neat stuff to use! It's like a tape runner, but with stitching. Purchased from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.
-
The pocket card was made for today's SCS challenge. I love the way this turned out.... I'm ALMOST tempted to use it for my Xmas cards this year.... If I actually get around to making a whole set of them!
-
I really love mixing strips and dots.. so I quickly ripped these 2 sheets out of the paper pad and put them together for this card. The red dots was also used for the first card.... sadly it's all gone now!!
-
Did I post this one already??? I believe I did, so I'm not gonna say much except I think Hanna stamps are just adorable. And I love stamping this dress on designer paper and dressing her up. It's like having paperdolls again!
This last card is so serene looking! I love the light colored paper and the sparkly snowflake. I don't usually make cards that are so lightly colored... but these just called out to me!!
Which card is your favorite??? #1, #2, #3 or #4? Post a comment and let me know

Hi Michelle - I like them all, but my favorite is the last one with the snowflakes. I think it would also look great with a silver snowflake!

Julie Campbell said...

Oooh! It's hard to pick! I like them all! That paper is soooo scrumptious! I think the first one is really cute! Love the way the sentiment curves... and the little mittens!

Pegg S said...

All are really great! I like #1 the most-- she is quite adorable and I love the patterns together and the layout!

These are great, love your Cat's pajamas card.

Allison said...

Michelle, these are awesome. I have a fondness for Sprinkle (I made a card with her today myself) and I so wish my LSS had this Basic Grey DP when I went there today! Awesome job all around (as always!).

Daniela said...

I love them all, but I have to say that #4 is my favorite. I love those colors and the sparkle of the snowflake.

SmilynStef said...

#4 for me ... love all of the wonderful details and sparkle.

Hello Michelle, this is Michelle...too! LOL! I just love all your creations but to choose from these I can honestly say the closest I can come to "one" is to narrow it down to TWO! LOL! I like the snowman polka dot/stripe combo and I really like the last one with the blue and the snow flake! Tough choice! TFS!

Well # 4 is my favorite just love it, but comming in a close second is #3...I am so happy I found your blog, I just love the work you do. I wish you lived close by so I could stamp with you.

All of them are great, but I love #4. And of course, no. 1 comes in with a close second. Great gob on all these! I absolutely love your blog - thanks for sharing!

Crystal said...

I adore the first card. The layout is a great one and promptly made it in my sketch book!

Beth said...

Wowzers, happy day for me--you posted a lot of cards like the "old days." I so miss your regular posts because I love your work so, so much. You are so inspirational. I dream that I can be as good as you one day. What card is my fav? Holy mackeral, they are all beautiful for different reasons, but the snow card is the top.

Nise said...

#1 - like the mittens, #2 like the pullout style, #3 like the shopping bags, #4 like the colors.
They're all wonderful. Think I'd say the snowflakes if I have to pick just one. Really great stuff!

Jennifer S. said...

they are all wonderful, as always, but there is just something about that cutie pie kittie that strikes my fancy!! she is just precious! makes me want to just skate up right beside her and listen to all the 'inside scoop' she has on the other cats on the pond! ;)

thanks for sharing your amazing creations with us! and I do agree about that paper - yum!!

jeannen2 said...

I like all of the cards too! I think my absolute favorite is the last card, the snowflake one, but the first one is also awfully cute! I love the curving sentiment and the little mitten accent. Jeanne

#4 is definitely my favourite!! Great job on all of them - the paper is fabulous.

Meredith said...

They are all really cute, but #3 is my favorite. I love the Hannah stamps. I have got to get my hands on this paper!

Angelina Leonard said...

All of them are great, but I love, love, love #1. Love the layers and the paper. Great ideas.

They are all great but my favorite is #2. I love the way you used the snowmen. I think I finally figured out how to comment instead of lurking all the time.

Beautiful! I really can't choose a favourite, I love them all!

They are all beautiful. I really like how you made Hanna's dress and the packages in the designer paper. But my favorite is the snowman pocket card #2. That is my favorite.

Penny G said...

Very tough call...I think I'll go with #1.

Dawn Easton said...

Oh my! I don't think I could pick a favourite out of the bunch! I love each one for a different reason! The first card is super cute! The second card is a snowman...love that! The third card is Hanna, waiting on my stamps but I love what you did! The last card is gorgeous with the snowflake!

Connie P said...

They are all beautiful. But #4 is my favorite.

inkedx2 said...

While they are all beautiful, my favorite is number 4. I love the soft look and the glitteryl snowflake.

Wendalyn said...

You say pick one? Impossible they are all gorgeous... I enjoy looking at your creations you are very talented..

DeniseLynn said...

Oh my they are all so nice. My first choice would have to be the last one ... the soft colors and then the sparkly silver - oh yum! But a close second is the second one - the stripes and the cute snowman is just fabulous.

CindyLouWho2 said...

They are all just great, Michelle. Thanks for sharing, but if i have to pick a favorite, I think it is #1, since it is just a little quirky.

Viv said...

I like them all but my favorite is the last one! The first one is my second choice because I love that stamp and it looks so cute on that paper!

Bethany Paull said...

They're all so different, how does one choose? I'll say number one for the kid in me and number four if I'm pretending to be all grown up.

Debbie G said...

These are awesome!! The snowflake one is a beauty!!

Laura said...

The last card is simply stunning. Great Work!

Debbie Olson said...

These are all beautiful for different reasons. I really love the snowflake one number 4, but they are all beautiful!
