Holiday Wishes

I created this card for this weeks inspiration challenge at There She Goes.  I decided to take a stamp set that isn't really Christmas themed and make it Christmas themed with my papers and sentiments.

The stamp set is called Scent-Sational from TSG.  I just love this little skunk with the present, and it just goes to show how versatile the stamps are from TSG.  I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers.  The sentiment and snowflake stamp are from Echo Park.  I embossed white cardstock with my Cuttlebug snowflakes folder and then inked it with Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry.  The DP is "Jolly and Bright" by Recollections.  I added a little sparkle to the package and the sentiment with Stickles. 
The inside is finished with the same materials.  I created the background with more snowflake stamps and the same Distress Ink.  I hope you enjoy this card, and have a wonderful week!

Happy Holidays

I decided to make a last minute entry for this weeks sketch challenge over at There She Goes.  I am waiting for all my new wonderful Christmas and holiday stamps from TSG to arrive in the mail, so I used a stamp set from Unity called Penguin Coolness. 

The paper is Sleigh Ride from Crate Paper.  I stamped the little guy in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  His little banner was stamped in Barn Door Distress ink.  I colored his little nose in with a Distress Marker in Orange Marmalade.  I added stickles to the snowflake he is holding. 

I finished the inside with the same materials.  I left a little blank space for a personal message.  I hope you enjoy this little penguin card as much as I do.  Have a wonderful week!

Merry Christmas

Hi there,
Wow the last few weeks have been super busy.  I participated in a huge craft fair last weekend, and with hosting Thanksgiving this week, I haven't had a moment to make cards.  I finally had a chance this weekend to sit down and create.  I whipped up this little card for the MFTWSC99 sketch challenge. 

I had fun using my new MFT Seasonal Sentiments stamp set and their Winter Wreath Die-Namic.  The DP is Holiday Style by October Afternoon.  I embossed the bottom piece of red cardstock with a Holly embossing folder by The Paper Studio.  I added mini red jingle bells to the wreath for berries.  The sentiment was stamped on to a mini tab Die-Namic cutout. 

The inside was finished using the same stamp set and DP.  All the edges were punched using my corner chomper.  The sentiment was stamped using my Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Peeled Paint and Barn Door.  I hope you enjoy the first of my 2012 Christmas cards.  Have a wonderful rest of the weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hi everyone!  I made this card for the TSG179 Pumpkin Spice Challenge.  The challenge was to use the colors of Kelly's favorite fall drink, Pumpkin Spice Coffee.

I used the Bountiful Blessings stamp set from TSG.  I know I just used this for my entry last week, but I really really love this stamp set!  I could not resist using it again.  I colored it in with my Spectrum Noir markers, and added a little sparkle with my Sakura Gel Pen in Clear Star.  The DP is We R Memory Keepers Autumn Splendor.  It is from last year, but it is my ultimate favorite fall DP to date.  The lacy border was created from an EK success punch.  Lastly, I created faux stitching around the card using a white Sakura Gel pen.

The inside was finished with the same materials I mentioned above.  I hope you have a wonderful fall week, and stay crafty!

Happy Halloween!

Hi Everyone!  What a hectic week!  I am so glad to finally sit down and post this card I made, believe it or not, last weekend for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 170.

This cute little Witch is "Hilda & Luna" Sweet November Stamp by Amy Young.  The greetings are from the AmyR Stamps set "Ghostly Greetings".  The DP is Doodlebug "Haunted Manor".  I created the background to the witch with my Tim Holtz Distress inks in Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade, and Shabby Shutters.  I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I added a little Stickles in Diamond to the edge of her hat band and belt.  I paper pieced the skirt, hat brim and hat top with the same paper line.  The flair button is from Studio G.

The inside is finished with the same designer paper.  There is plenty of blank space for a personal message.  I hope you enjoy my card even though I am posting it after Halloween.  Have a wonderful weekend, and stay crafty!
