Christmas Love

Christmas mice with a sweet little Lawn Fawn "Love" greeting.  A quick and easy Christmas card, where the Impression Obsession images are stamped on white card stock, die cut using Lawn Fawn's Journal card, and images colored in with Copics.  A Lawn Fawn snowflake image added to the background. Looking for a final touch and seeing a random, glittered snowflake on my desk, I grabbed that, tied it up with a little twine and ready for mailing!



Perfect for a little Christmas card or Anniversary or just because!

Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Blog Hop Thanks!

Change is a bittersweet thing. With it comes all the sweet memories that are because, it was. Happy to be part of an enormous group of people saying good bye to a magazine that has been tops in inspiration for Paper Crafter's around the world. I was a fan of the paper version although enjoyed my digital copy as well.  But, more important than any inspiration, new product features, or any super creative card or project were the people that made it all come together.

People that I may never meet in real life who made me smile, laugh out loud or inspired me in a special way to create something I may have never thought of without their inspiration.  So for you.


A simple "thanks."

Have a Sweet Christmas - Clearly Besotted

Hoping you enjoy a sweet Christmas!  This seasonal greeting from Clearly Besotted Stamps and my first set of their collections.  This one from their "Naughty or Nice" set.  I love the quick and easy solid cottage that is my focal point on my card here:



Using Hero Arts "Soft Sand" I inked up my cottage, masked it with Inkadinkado Stamp Masking Paper and filled in a sky and grass background with Distress Inks.  MFT Pierced Circle Stax is used for the circular cutout in paper from Doodlebug, Santa Express papers.  The Clearly Besotted tree image is stamped in Hero Arts "Forever Green, along with part of the sentiment which is finished off in Hero Arts "Red Royal." All makes for a quick and easy fun Holiday card!

Cheers!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a day spent being thankful for all your blessings!  I love this sentiment from Eat Cake Graphics!  I am thankful for family, friends and good health and since I've been counting my calories lately, I am going to be very thankful for mashed potatoes and stuffing.  Yum!

Here's a little turkey to go along with the greeting:



Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving and turkey coma!  And for those of you who tear out at break neck speed for shopping deals, be safe and may the shopping force be with you!

All A Good Night!

Not a creature was stirring, peaceful, cold winter's night, Christmas; all these make me think of being cozy in a warm bed.  Eat Cake Graphics "Good Night" image captures all that with this adorable little guy sound asleep underneath a colorful quilt.


Pink Posh provides the window frame with their Stitched Duo One.  Distress inks for the night sky and wood embellishments for the stars.  Copics color up our sleeping boy image.  Bazill for the gorgeous Peppermint red card stock.

Sweet Dreams.

Jolly Holly Days

Getting on with wintery cards should be easy for most everyone since the storm that bypassed us, in Anchorage, blew itself down to the lower 48 states!  The little snow we had melted leaving clear streets and green grass.  I'm ok with that!

With some inspiration from the Online Card Classes recent Holiday Card Class, I put together this fun little Jolly Holly Days card.  Kristina Werner featured the same navy banner on kraft card stock and red and white twine.  It was another great class and I always look forward to the classes with her and Jennifer McGuire.  


Images are from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day and Deck the Halls sets.  Kraft and Blueberry Sour on the card stock.  Copic Markers in W0,1,3, R20, 22 and Hero Arts Green Hills for the tree. Sentiment embossed in Versamark with Hero Arts White embossing powder. Wink of Stella in clear on the heart die cut, covered in glossy accents for the finish.  

Have a JOLLY day!

Be Merry!

A little bit of an "ugly sweater" theme going, on this fun, tag style, card.  Tim Holtz Holiday Knit Stencil was the perfect background on a Pretty Pink Posh tag.  Using Texture Paste I allowed it to dry over night and then topped it off with Essentials by Ellen's & Julie Ebersole's Prize Stag die.  The sentiment for this quick seasonal card is from a set I love by Hero Arts.


Finishing it off with Kristina Werner's signature style dashed lines added a touch of white to bring it all together.

Be Merry!
