Happy Brrrthday!

Today I used a little Magnolia girl sitting with flakes. I colored her with Copic Markers, cut her out and popped her up on a bench from Whiff of Joy. The images were layered on some of the new Bo Bunny winter paper. Snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I added the sentiment from Amuse on a oval scallop piece of paper. Then I added pearls to the snowflakes and sentiment using the Viva pearl pen. This works well for those cold January birthdays!!

Heartfelt Winter Wishes

These Elegant Snowflake Medallions from Heartfelt Creations fit their Ornament die cuts. Just stamp and cut out six flakes with the matching nestabilities die, assemble and add a little embellishments and you have a beautiful snowflake. For the first card, I used the sentiment from Prickley Pear and cut out two ovals with the nestabilities. Then attached the smaller snowflake for an added accent on the card. Adding some silver ribbon, I tied it all together. For the background on the second card, I used some score tape with Microfine highlight glitter to add some extra sparkle. I layered the snowflakes on Bo Bunny's new winter papers. Both cards have some embossing to add some texture. These are quick and beautiful cards.

Midnight Madness challenge #82

Here's one of my cards for the Midnight Madness Challenge for this month. I used paper from the new Bo Bunny Midnight Frost collection. Then I used the snowflake border die from Tim Holtz and tied a ribbon around it with the sentiment tag. The sentiment is from Amuse. I stamped the bear from High Hopes and colored him with Copics. Then I popped him up on the Labels 11 Nestabilites dies, which I had sponged with Summer Sky Momento ink before removing the die. I used the snowflakes to create the circle doily piece behind my image. Stay warm!

Mojo Monday #170

I am finally doing another challenge!! Here is for this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I used my little Ricky Raccoon from Stamp Shoppe Creations and added a heart tattoo for a Valentine's card. I colored him with Copics and added some white highlights with a white get pen. He is layered on some of the new Bo Bunny Valentine paper...The Crush collection. Instead of a circle, I used the heart nestabilities to follow the love theme. Hope you all have a happy Christmas tomorrow!!

Season's Tweetings

These two birds are from Whiff of Joy. I stamped them and colored them with Copic Markers. Using the oval nestabilites, I cut out the bird all except the pine boughs. I then layered the birds onto the beaded oval frame, which I sponged the openings of the stenceil before removing the nestabilities from the paper. The paper was cut from My Mind's Eye decorator paper and faux stitched with the ScorBuddy and the ScorBug. After assembling my card and add the flowers, I used the Viva Pearl Pen to add the pearl accents and the snow on the branches. Stay warm!!

Merry Christmas

Here is a Snowman that I've had in my drawer for a few years and decided to get him out and use him again. This stamp is from Whippersnapper. I first choose the Christmas paper from the My Mind's Eye "Believe" collection. Then I picked out the cardstock to match. I then colored him with Copics to match the paper. I used the drippy goo Martha Stewart punch for the one border and the scallop edge border punch from Fiskars for the other. I used the Scorbuddy and Scorbug to make stitch lines around the card and on the red strip. I then used dies to make the swirl and the poinsettia accents and decorated around the Merry Christmas sentiment. The sentiment was cut out using Spellbinders circle dies. Keep warm!

Thanks a BUNCH!

Here's a cute stamp from Stampavie. I colored her with Copics and added some white highlights. The papers are from My Mind's Eye and Pink Paisley. I stamped a leafy background from Impression Obsession with Vintage Photo ink on the Kraft paper to add some texture. Then I stamped the sentiment from Amuse onto a tag and tucked it under the ribbon to make it look like I tied it into the ribbon. Most of the time I used the "Thanks a BUNCH" sentiment with flowers, but it worked great for the bushel of apples too!
