Our Creative Corner - The Polar Express

Hello & thanks for stopping by! I don't know about you, but it’s been another crazy week here so I welcome the weekend and a little extra time to sleep in. I have been working on the next stamp release plus creating future sketches for our weekly sketch challenge over at Stamps and Smiles. I would like to thank you all for your sweet comments this past week and stopping by my Christmas blog.

My cards for today are for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Our October host, Lori Rider, has challenged us to create a card/or project from our favorite holiday movie or book. We warmly invite you to participate, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

My first card is based on one of my favorite movies "The Polar Express". I made the house out of two pieces of chocolate chip cardstock. One piece for the house and the other piece for the roof. The scallop punch was used to create the scalloped trim on the house. I embossed the house using the diamonds in the rough embossing folder from Cut At Home. To accent the train, I cut some white cardstock and added some curves to it. I used one of my favorite stamp sets from Stamps and Smiles called Tis the Season to be Jolly. To finish off the card, I added some snowflakes and glitter.
My second card was for another fun movie called "The Haunted Mansion". Just a quick Halloween card. Most of it was created using Halloween Sizzix dies and Martha Stewart punches.
Before I go, I would like to tell all of my subscribers that the Stamps and Smiles store has digi images. 4 sets from this past stamp release are available.

Have a fun weekend and don't forget to stop by the OCC to see the other samples by the amazing and creative Design Team. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs & Smiles,
