I love this little deer and polar bear. They are just so cute. I masked the polar bear and stamped the deer so that he stood behind. I punched little snowflakes and added pearls to the centers.

When I saw this poinesttia stamp, I knew I was going to make a porcelain pin. The gold centers were drops of hot glue that I embossed with gold ep. I found that when embossing dried hot glue, I had to work really fast so as not to melt the glue. I made a little origami box to hold the pin.


  1. BEAUTIFUL WORK. I love both of your projects.

  2. Wow! these are great, love the poinsettia pin!

  3. Beautiful color-blocking and masking on the card, and what a gorgeous project with the poinsettias. You KNOW i love the RED!!

  4. Great winter scene card! Your poinsettia pin is very pretty and clever!

  5. Fantastic projects, Marilynn! Your poinsettia pin is absolutely beautiful :) (And yes, the marshmallow shooter is definitely an incentive for my little popcorn seller. That may be a pie-in-the-sky goal for him, but who knows?)

  6. I love the poinsetta pin, very cool.

  7. Sweet card! And the pin is lovely!

  8. Gorgeous projects, especially that pin! Stunning!
