Hello my friends, Lisa here today.  Happy November! Anyone else in full Christmas mode? I’ve got tons of Rubbernecker Stamps Holiday inspiration for you today… and of course there is some caffeine included!  This adorable Elf Stirring Coco image won my heart as soon as I saw it! Isn’t this adorable??  It’s one of the many new holiday stamps over in the Rubbernecker shop.   I colored him up with my Copics and cut him out.  I decided a cup of… Mocha..(my hot chocolate always has coffee added).. would possibly be sitting on a counter in front of a window with a beautiful view of the snowfall outside.  Any reason to create a shaker, right??…lol!

He looks content… I wonder if he’s gonna drink this one or if he’s making it for someone.  I mean… the size?  So what… I could use a cup big enough to sit on.  Just give me a straw.
I blended some distress inks in light blues and ever so lightly added some clouds with the cloud stencil.  Then I added acetate to the inside of the window die cut and popped it up to create my shaker.  I used a mix of snowflakes, beads, and translucent round sequins… my own mix of sorts.

And isn’t the Merry and Bright sentiment sweet?  I love that light and fun font!  I hand cut the banner after heat embossing the sentiment onto the cardstock.

There are also some really beautiful and fun Holiday sentiment stamps in the shop that are good enough to be the main focus of a card!

They are made of fantastic iconic images and beautiful fonts… I heat embossed this one onto the blue cardstock and fussy cut it out.

And this Rectangle One Piece Die is quickly becoming one of my faves… It cuts multiple frames at once and you can use one or put two or more together to create your custom frame.  I used three frames here… two cut in the woodgrain and one in the white.  I popped up my frame and placed a white piece of cardstock behind it that I embossed with a snowflake folder.  Finally I just popped the sentiment stamp up in the center.

Next I used two of the smaller frames cut from blue cardstock to create this shaker card.  I started by blending some blues on the cardstock and then used the Stars Stencil to apply gold Deco Foil Metallix Gel.

While that panel was drying, I heat embossed the sentiment onto white cardstock using Wow Gold Embossing Powder.  Then when the background was dry, I added the shaker with some more gold stars (sequins) along with a few others.   I popped the fussy cut sentiment up over the top.  It’s a beautiful image, isn’t it?

I just love the shimmer of all of that gold!  And don’t you just love shakers?  So much fun and I love the sound they make as those sequins and beads roll around.

And last but certainly not least, this adorable Snowmen with Animals image!  I decided to use some non-traditional colors for it so I stuck with blues and purples and just a touch of blue green.

I love how the bunny is eating a carrot… although it’s good to see none of his snowman friends are missing their noses…lol!  I had to trim this image a bit to fit it in the Snow Globe… there are actually two more birds in the image.  I also cut the snow fall dots from the Cabin Die in white glitter paper as well as the ground die included with the Snow Globe for a touch of shimmer.

I just love that globe and I’m looking forward to using it a bunch more this holiday season!
