I think the elf and the reindeer in this set are just the cutest! I also like how you can mix and match the wagon and presents with both images. Can you see all the possibilities for the tree? You can color it or paper piece it. Leave it plain or dress it up with all the fun ornaments included in the set.
For my card, I chose to use the reindeer, wagon, and presents. I thought it would be fun to create a wintry scene with this little guy, so I paired him with some stickers from Echo Park's Holly Jolly Christmas line. The snow was made using PTI's In the Meadow die. Once my scene was complete, I realized that I hadn't left much room for a sentiment. I decided to hide it behind my main panel and now when you pull the tassel at the side of the card, it reveals the sentiment!

I immediately thought "banner" when I saw this sketch. I wanted to use my Hubby and Wifey stamp set, so I used the top of the wine glass to make the half circle banners and added a wedding bell between each banner to make a fun wedding card. The sentiment is also from the Hubby and Wifey set. The red twine is sewn on to the card. I used my We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool to get evenly spaced holes. Then it is a cinch to sew in the pattern.

Welcome to the first ever Deasy Designs Blog Hop! You should have arrived here by way of Yenni's blog. If you arrived here from somewhere else, be sure to start at the beginning of the hop over on the Deasy Designs blog.
Today we want to highlight the Our Heroes stamp set. It is a wonderful military themed stamp set that is perfect for making cards for those who serve our country. Today, however, we wanted to show you that this set can be used in many different ways for all kinds of occassions!
I chose to use the sailor to make a super fun cupcake topper. I think any little boy would love this 3-D sailboat and sweet little sailor. First, I printed this boat template and stamped the side of the boat with the USA stamp. The boat is very easy to fold, just make sure you score the dotted lines first. Then I drew the sails on some patterned paper and adhered them to navy cardstock. I used the small blank flag from the set to make the fun flags at the top of the sails. The flags were easy to decorate using the star stamps inlcuded in this set. The pole down the center of the sails was made using the flag poles from the two flags included in the set. Of course, the best part is the sweet little sailor that fit perfectly in my boat.
Here is a close-up of the cupcake topper.
I thought it would be fun to add some waves, so I used a punch to create the wave pattern on some blue cardstock. Then I just cut it down to size and wrapped it around the base of the cupcake.
What do you think? Can you image a cute little nautical birthday party?! You could use the sailor and the little flag in the Our Heroes stamp set to make not only the cupcake toppers, but also banners, party favors and invitations!
