A Blooming Card!

Here's a blooming card that we will be doing in the Blooming Card class at The Stamp Shoppe in Wisconsin on Tuesday morning, December 14th. This is using the McGill blooming punches to make the garden rose. I added some cuttlebug embossing, nestabilities and some other die cuts to finish off the card. If you are interested in the class, all you have to do is email or call us and we will sign you up!

Peeking out to say...

...Happy Day! Here I used the Tina Wenke stamp from Stampavie. I colored it with Copic Markers. Then I layered it onto a punched doily. The doily was punched with a new Martha Stewart around the corner punch. It is hard to see from the picture, but I used the ScorBuddy to add some score lines in the doily. Then I used the ScorBug to add the "stitches" around the decorator paper. I used My Mind's Eye paper and Creative Imaginations ribbon.

Holidays are a Real Tweet!

Here I used the Robins from Stampavie. I colored them with Copic Markers. I was trying to decide what colors to use on the birds, but decided to do non-traditional colors. With the Memory Box bird paper as the background, I wanted to color them to match the paper. I then embossed the bird paper, sanded it, and then sponged some Vintage Photo Distress Ink over it. Using two Martha Stewert punches, I layered them and distressed the Holiday lace layer with Vintage Photo Distress Ink as well. Finally, I popped the birds up on a lacey die cut out to frame the birds. Keep warm and cozy!!

Except Just One Moose!

This stamp is NEW from Stamp Shoppe Creations. Here is Malkin the Chris"moose". Check out other Malkin stamps from our Stamp Shoppe Creations store blog. I stamped the Chris"moose" and colored him with Copic Markers. Then I layered him onto blue cardstock that was cut out with the new nestabilities oval eyelet die. I added pearls with the Viva Pearl Pen. The border punch is from Martha Stewart. Papers are from Daisy D's. The sentiment is also from Stamp Shoppe Creations.

Spring ribbons

Here is another Creatables from Ecstasy Crafts. This is the ribbon slides. Just cut out with your cuttlebug or Big Shot and emboss it. Then run a ribbon though the slots. Now you have a neat embellishment to add to the card front. The image was from Stampavie and colored with Copic Markers. I cut out the image with a nestabilities die and without removing the die, I sponged some pink around the edges. This leaves a white border. The swirl is from the Creatables die set that I used in a the previous post...A little note Bear.
