Snowy Tag

>> Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Surprise!  Another Tag!

Yep, I am addicted!

I stamped the Triple Tree with snow image using my MISTI, then I took a water color brush and blurred up the lines.  I stamped it again and did the same three times.  Then I watercolored some blue to make my shadows and blur the green snowbank line a bit.  

I then added a bit of new Deco Peace and Joy sentiment and the cardinal from the Santa with Birds Christmas Scene stamp.  Finished it all off with a bit of Snowtex and raffia.  

This will dress up a gift bag wonderfully.

Hi Everyone,

Today's card share is based on my personal color preference when buying my poinsettias for the Christmas season. I always lean towards the pink, maroon and cream ones, rather than the bright red. It's all about trying to match my home decor :)

I started with the Poinsettia Vine Corner stamp and made a little frame by stamping it twice.  Inside I used the sentiment portion from the Three Wisemen Peace stamp and then colored it in using my Copic markers.  I die cut it using the curved rectangle dies and added a bit of sponging and glitter to the berries.

I embossed the background with large snowflakes and wrapped a ribbon around it to mimic a gift.  I adhered the sentiment to the center and finished it with a die cut frame and flowers with gem centers. 

I don't think I could name a better gift to give our world, than peace on earth!  It's my heart's desire for sure.  

May there be peace in your little corner of the world today :)



Merry Christmas to All...

Hi Everyone. My card today features the new Santa with Birds image. I had fun coloring this image and adding some shimmer here and there.

The Santa and birds image was stamped with Memento Black ink and colored with Copics. Some Nuvo Blizzard drops were added to his hat and the fur trim on his coat.  After the drops dried, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the snowy areas. The panel was die cut with a SB die, attached to the red panel and then to the white card base. Some white snowflakes were die cut and added to two of the corners. Red nail heads were added to the centers.

You can barely see, but on the inside the Interlocking Snowflakes Background image was stamped with Real Red ink along the bottom of the card.

So how are you doing with your stash of Christmas cards?  Hope you are further along than me!!

Thanks for stopping by.



Santa with Birds

>> Sunday, November 19, 2017

Good Morning all,

This new stamp would be perfect for that special card.

It really does not take that long color this image and it is just adorable. It's called Santa with Birds Christmas.

After coloring I added some frames and you have a Christmas card.

Have a wonderful day,


Santa Is Coming!

Good morning!!
I have two Santa cards for you this morning.
One is the new release Santa with Birds 351P
I've also used the new Deco Peace and Joy 355G or part of it anyway.
the frame is a die from Lawn Fawn and inner die from Memory Box.
The Birds are I.O. on the corners.  I popped up the frame, used Liquid Applique on the fur and Mix Micro Beads for the seed.  I like that look so since I have a pack of mixed colors I like to use it.  I used glitter on the snow.

 This next card is from last year's release,  Santa with Puppy 1041P I also used
Santa Puppy 408F on the frame and the Christmas lights 1054H on the frame with Merry Christmas 364B.  The frame die is from Memory Box and the inner die is also Memory Box.  I popped up the frame and fussy cut the lights and puppy for the frame.  My fur is Liquid Applique heated.  I used a metallic silver pencil and glitter pen on the tree tinsel, Glitter Nuvo on the outside snow and also white paint.

Thanks for visiting today!


Peace and Joy!

Hi Everyone. Shelia here on a Friday for Julie, who is packing up house and moving. I know she is looking forward to being settled and creating again. I have to admit, I miss seeing Julie's unique and gorgeous creations.

My card today features the new Deco Peace and Joy greeting. I really like this greeting. It's a perfect size and can be used with so many different images. Today I paired it with a Memory box die cut and some Impression Obsession die cut deer. I created the background by sponging some TH Distress Oxide inks and splashing some water drops on to look like snow. The die cut panel was attached to the background after I stamped the greeting with Archival Jet Black ink. The white dots were added to the backs of the deer with a white gel pen. Then everything was attached to the teal card base. I really like the way this turned out. You can create some really cool backgrounds with the Distress Oxide inks.

Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you find some time to get inky.



Cell Phone Fun

>> Thursday, November 16, 2017


I'm extremely excited about my post this week!  It all started last week when I tried to order a new cell phone case.  I had one last year with Christmas ornaments on it, but upgraded phones and it doesn't fit my new phone.  The real problem came in when I couldn't find one I like for this year.  Turned out to be a the best thing, because what I did find was a clear case which gives me the opportunity to stamp my own!

 Luckily because the case was going to fit my phone I cut out a template before the case even came in.  I immediately started going through Christmas stamps, but then realized I could now do a "case" for all the holidays so I put down the Christmas and picked up the Thanksgiving!!

For my particular phone I need to start with a 2 5/8" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock.  I stamped our Autumn Flower Spray using black ink that had been stamped off once and colored it with my watercolor pencils then lined up our Psalm 100 Thanksgiving Greeting in my misti and stamped it twice using black ink ( you can't really see it in the photo because of the plastic case reflection, but the black came out REALLY black :)  Keeping in mind it all has to be one layer I masked off the flower section and stamped our Woven Plaid (using our Easy Plaid Demo on an angle) using orange and yellow inks and finished off by markering in an orange line after I removed the mask.  After rounding the corners, I put my almost finished card into the case and lightly traced the openings for the 2 cut outs with a pencil.  I used a circle die to punch out the center and for the oval camera opening, I used a regular hole punch at either end and a blade to connect them.  Voila - my first cell phone case!!!

I didn't stop there of course!  On to Christmas.... well, my first Christmas case :)

I was completely in the mood to color last night, and this was the perfect image to use!  I simply stamped our Santa with Puppy Christmas Scene onto another 2 5/8" x 5 1/2" card using black ink - except that before I stamped it I wiped off the ink that's on the window and drapes.  Once I was finished coloring (including the yellow wall) I stamped our Happy Holidays across the top and added a little glitter accent to the fur on Santa's outfit and cut out the 2 openings.

Thanks for stopping by!
