Santa and Friends

>> Friday, November 24, 2017


I was thinking about doing a crazy "Black Friday" card, but instead I figured I'd bring you a little peace and serenity today, especially if you're spending any part of the day shopping!

I stamped our new Santa with Birds Christmas Scene on white card stock using black ink and colored it with a combination of markers and watercolor pencils.  Once I finished sponging on the sky and snow I added some red marker dots to decorate the tree and layered it on green card stock.  The greeting was pieced together using the first 3 lines from our Simple Pleasures Christmas Greeting and the inverted corners were made using a circle punch.  Both layers were attached to my embossed background and then to a folded green card.

Thanks so much for stopping by


All is Calm Winter Scene

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

As the Mama of 2 young boys, I'm always on the lookout for some peace and quiet - even if it's just in stamping :) as my card today portrays.

I started my card by stamping our Pine Tree Snowdrifts on the left side of my card and then flipping the stamp over and stamping more snow on the right to finish it off.  Next I stamped our Village Pond with Bridge a little off center and then our new Village Rocks to the right of it all using black ink.  I added a few trees using our Village 4 in 1  Accessories.  For the sky I made a mask of the snowdrift and then punched out a 1" circle mask and sponged on several shades of blue ink and then stamped our All is Calm greeting using white ink and embossing powder. Everything was colored using a combination of markers and sponging.  I used a silver gel pen to add my sparkily stars.

Thanks so much for spending part of your holiday with us!!



Snowy Tag

>> Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Surprise!  Another Tag!

Yep, I am addicted!

I stamped the Triple Tree with snow image using my MISTI, then I took a water color brush and blurred up the lines.  I stamped it again and did the same three times.  Then I watercolored some blue to make my shadows and blur the green snowbank line a bit.  

I then added a bit of new Deco Peace and Joy sentiment and the cardinal from the Santa with Birds Christmas Scene stamp.  Finished it all off with a bit of Snowtex and raffia.  

This will dress up a gift bag wonderfully.

Hi Everyone,

Today's card share is based on my personal color preference when buying my poinsettias for the Christmas season. I always lean towards the pink, maroon and cream ones, rather than the bright red. It's all about trying to match my home decor :)

I started with the Poinsettia Vine Corner stamp and made a little frame by stamping it twice.  Inside I used the sentiment portion from the Three Wisemen Peace stamp and then colored it in using my Copic markers.  I die cut it using the curved rectangle dies and added a bit of sponging and glitter to the berries.

I embossed the background with large snowflakes and wrapped a ribbon around it to mimic a gift.  I adhered the sentiment to the center and finished it with a die cut frame and flowers with gem centers. 

I don't think I could name a better gift to give our world, than peace on earth!  It's my heart's desire for sure.  

May there be peace in your little corner of the world today :)



Merry Christmas to All...

Hi Everyone. My card today features the new Santa with Birds image. I had fun coloring this image and adding some shimmer here and there.

The Santa and birds image was stamped with Memento Black ink and colored with Copics. Some Nuvo Blizzard drops were added to his hat and the fur trim on his coat.  After the drops dried, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the snowy areas. The panel was die cut with a SB die, attached to the red panel and then to the white card base. Some white snowflakes were die cut and added to two of the corners. Red nail heads were added to the centers.

You can barely see, but on the inside the Interlocking Snowflakes Background image was stamped with Real Red ink along the bottom of the card.

So how are you doing with your stash of Christmas cards?  Hope you are further along than me!!

Thanks for stopping by.



Santa with Birds

>> Sunday, November 19, 2017

Good Morning all,

This new stamp would be perfect for that special card.

It really does not take that long color this image and it is just adorable. It's called Santa with Birds Christmas.

After coloring I added some frames and you have a Christmas card.

Have a wonderful day,


Santa Is Coming!

Good morning!!
I have two Santa cards for you this morning.
One is the new release Santa with Birds 351P
I've also used the new Deco Peace and Joy 355G or part of it anyway.
the frame is a die from Lawn Fawn and inner die from Memory Box.
The Birds are I.O. on the corners.  I popped up the frame, used Liquid Applique on the fur and Mix Micro Beads for the seed.  I like that look so since I have a pack of mixed colors I like to use it.  I used glitter on the snow.

 This next card is from last year's release,  Santa with Puppy 1041P I also used
Santa Puppy 408F on the frame and the Christmas lights 1054H on the frame with Merry Christmas 364B.  The frame die is from Memory Box and the inner die is also Memory Box.  I popped up the frame and fussy cut the lights and puppy for the frame.  My fur is Liquid Applique heated.  I used a metallic silver pencil and glitter pen on the tree tinsel, Glitter Nuvo on the outside snow and also white paint.

Thanks for visiting today!
