'Tis the Season

Happy Tuesday!

Are you still making Christmas cards?  I still have a few to send out. 

For this card I used stamps and inks from Catherine Pooler.  All of the images are from the Winter Woodland stamp set.  I couldn't resist that deer when I noticed this set.  I think it's the way her head is turned!

I plan to use this set one more time before all my cards are done.  So stay tuned!

I'll be back again tomorrow, so I'll see you then.

Gina K. Designs Mix It Up Monday Challenge - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Happy Monday!

It's my turn to host the Gina K. Designs StampTV Mix It Up Monday Challenge.  This week the challenge is to use non-traditional colors on a project.  I chose some wacky colors for a Christmas card and once I got started stamping out all sorts of bright colors, I couldn't stop!  I made six cards in total and I love them ALL!!  

Take a look:

For my ornaments I used stamps from Deck the Halls

I wanted some larger sentiments so I chose three from Merry and Bright, Fabulous Holiday Labels, and Peaceful Holidays.  And if you are wondering what ink colors I used, they are:  Passionate Pink, Sweet Mango, Wild Dandelion, Jelly Bean Green, Turquoise Sea, and Wild Lilac.

We would love for you to join the challenge too!  Check it out at StampTV.  Click on CHALLENGES and play along!

See you tomorrow!

May Your Days be Merry and Bright

Hello Sunday Friends!

I wanted to make a more feminine Christmas card so I turned to two of my favorite companies:  Wplus9 and Reverse Confetti.

The floral sprays are from the Banner in Bloom stamp set from Reverse Confetti. It is not a holiday stamp set, but I thought the flowers would be pretty behind the sentiment which is from the Be Merry stamp and die set from Wplus9.

This cutie has already hit the mailbox and I hope my sweet friend likes it.

See you tomorrow!

Altenew December Challenge - Merry Christmas

Happy Saturday!

It's time for another Altenew challenge.  Here is my card for the December Inspiration Challenge and this is the current graphic.  For this month we could chose from any of the 2017 challenges.  I chose July with the green, red and pink.

I used the Peace on Earth stamp set to make my card.  I wasn't sure how a red and pink world would look, but I think I'm a fan!  I used Crimson and Moss inks on my card.  After stamping everything I stamped it all again with Versamark and then clear heat embossed it.  So everything is raised and shiny!

Have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow!

Happy Birthday to You

Happy Friday!

Just taking a tiny break from Christmas cards.  I thought I'd share a birthday card today.

I used the Fa La Llama set from Neat and Tangled and colored everything in bright pink.  I absolutely love this little guy.  I think he looks great in hot pink against the striped background.  Love him to pieces!

Have a wonderful day and I'll see you again tomorrow.

Merry Christmas

Happy Thursday!

I am absolutely loving this Christmas Cheer Turn About stamp set from Concord and Ninth.  I stamped everything in black and then did some very quick coloring with Copic markers. 

For my sentiment, I die cut the Ribbon Banner from both white and aqua card stock and then stamped the Merry Christmas from the Christmas Cheer Turn About stamp set.  I offset them a little bit and then used foam tape to mount them.

I have a few more Christmas cards to make...so I'll probably use this stamp again very soon.

Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow.

Color Throwdown #472 -You are so Sweet

Happy Wednesday!

Here is my card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge. As soon as this inspiration photo popped up, I went to work right away!

My focal point image is from Altenew.  It is the Strawberry stamp set (and die) and I just love it sitting on some stenciled stripes and dotted paper!
