Welcome to the November 2021 Crafty Elves Post! Every 25th of the month my crafty friends, Debra and Michael and I share the Christmas cards we made that month! With the holidays, I needed some really easy but cute cards and I made a shaker from some new dies over at AJVD and a Carta Bella paper pad from a previous season and decided they were perfect for today!
No coloring and a quick and easy shaker! Just paper and dies! I used the little picture cards from the paper pack and filled my shaker with some snowflakes and a few clear sequins and colorful beads. For this one I used a sentiment from the AJVD Let It Snow stamp set.
Didn't even need to add a sentiment for this one! The sentiment is one of the picture cards!
I love this cutie pie picture card and added some snowflakes and a sentiment from the Cool Friend stamp set!
And another one where the picture card IS the sentiment!
And this is the one I made first that inspired the rest of my cards for this month and if you'd like a little more detail of how I made them, you can visit my post here!
I've got one more for you! I didn't make this one this month... in fact I made it a while ago! But Miss Ink Stamps is having a Winter Release and they are releasing a Limited Edition stamp set from a prior season, Snow Couple!
Tomorrow, Friday, November 26th, you'll find more New Release inspiration along with giveaways and a sale! Be sure to check it out!
Thanks so much for stopping! Now be sure to head over to Debra's and Michael's places to see what they've created for this month!
Now let's see who won some Happy Mail from last month's post:

We're playing again! Leave me some love and I'll pick a name next month to send some Happy Mail to!
Hello! Today is start of sneak peeks for the Miss Ink Stamps Winter Release! I'm using the Bear Hugs stamp set for this one!
I created this cool background with some acrylic paints and the Heirloom Blooms stencil. Then I used the Sparkles stencil to add some pretty sparky stars. I think the background looks a little like the Northern Lights and I decided to give a purple hue to my ice cave (which is part of this adorable stamp set). I love that with different colors I could make these brown bears in a rock cave!
And of course there are some super duper cute punny sentiments! Everything will be available in the shop Saturday morning! Look for sneaks over on Instagram and Saturday you'll find all the new stuff in the New section of the Miss Ink Stamps website!
Thanks so much for stopping! Hope you come again soon!
Hello! I have two cards today for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and this is my final card using some great Polka Dot Orchard digital stamps!
I saw this Tall Thanks car with a coffee cup on the top and I knew I had to use it... it isn't a Christmas image, but I made it one using the Magic of Christmas set for the Santa hat and belt and that great sentiment!
I printed and colored all of my images separately, fussy cut them and assembled them together (rather than digitally putting them together) and cut the sentiment with a banner die. I cut the mini slimline using an AJVD die from a panel of a gel press print from my stash and used a stencil to add a snowfall with some Glitz Glitter Gel.
I popped up everything on the card and added a few sequins!
And that is the end of the Coffee Lovers Hop for me! Hoping to visit some blogs over the weekend and can't wait to see what everyone created!
Thanks so much for sticking with me this week and hope you'll come again soon!
One of my favorite coffee sets is the Brewtiful set from Miss Ink! It's got all you need to make a fun and beautiful coffee card... cups, coffee plants, beans, the chemical symbol and lots of great sentiments! I used a little of all of it!
I heat embossed the caffeine symbol over a gel print from my stash... and don't you just love that sentiment?? I have a friend that says that all the time... maybe I'll send this to her!

Welcome back! I'm playing along over at the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop again with some new Graciellie Design and another great background stamp from Unity! Here's how I was inspired:
I'm in love with the beautiful new Cup of Cheer digital stamp set! It's full of yummy images and great sentiments!
I printed two of the cup and cookies images so I could cut out the cup and pop it up over the whole image. I printed colored and cut out the images. The first one I cut out the entire image and for the second just the cup. Then I colored the parts that would be showing from the first and the cup. Then I put foam tape on the back of the cup and popped it up on top of the image including the plate.
I embossed that beautiful stamp from Unity, Delectable Border Background onto a gel press print panel. Then I added the completed image. Finally I fussy cut a sentiment from the Christmas Cheer set and popped it up on top and added a few sequins and some Nuvo Drops to the Coffee snowflake.
That's me for today! I'm linking this one up over at the Coffee Lovers Hop! You should check it out!
I'm also playing along with the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop with this one! There's something so relaxing for me to sit and have my coffee every morning, pet my dog and check out some pretty cards on Instagram and it resets me for the day to come.
