Everything Stops For Walkies

Today I’m on the LDRS Creative Inspiration blog with a card using one of the new images recently released at CHA and available to you in the coming weeks. The image is Everything Stops for Walkies by All Dressed Up and colored with Copic markers. These images are sweet and fun to color. I finished off the card with dies and an embossing folder from Creative Basics.

I Love You Just the Way You Are

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, mainly because I’ve been trying to get organized. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by crafting supplies — paper, stamps, inks, markers. It all adds up quickly! So I’ve taken a step back just get things in order.

The nice thing about getting organized is that it forced me to look through all of the paper, stamps, and dies that I purchased over the past year (and haven’t used). That alone should stop me from buying anything new for while, but that’s a resolution that I’m not even going to pretend to make! But over the next few days, I’m going to post a few cards that I made from my stash so that some of these supplies will finally see the light of day.

Today’s is the first of two cards that feature stamps and die cuts – no Copics! I love to color, but sometimes I just want an easy card that goes together quickly, especially if I want to make multiple copies. Since I don’t really like to color the same image multiple times, using die cuts was my ready solution. For the sake of my sanity, I backed the red foil paper with iCraft adhesive sheets before running it through the die cutter. Then all of my embellishments were just peel and stick. Can’t get much easier than that!

Here’s a look at the inside of the card.

Get Wool Soon

Power Poppy Get Wool SoonIt’s the 15th of the month so it’s time for another digital release – Get Wool Soon — from Power Poppy. Marcella wrote: “As the days get chillier, who doesn’t long to cozy up and do some crafting in a comfy chair? While I fare better with a paintbrush and palette balancing on my knee, for many, the wintertime craft of choice is knitting! This gentle vignette of warm woolen yarns and a cup of coziness is just the thing to color and share with a friend.”Rowhouse Greetings | Christmas | Get Wool Soon by Power Poppy

You’re a Friend Like No One Elf

Just a quick holiday card featuring the BB Santa’s Elves stamp set by My Favorite Things and coordinating dies. I love the whimsy in this stamp set and the elves are easy to color. I was able to put this card together fairly fast and at this time of year, that’s a real plus!

I like adding patterned paper to the inside rather than leaving it white. Here I used the coordinating paper from Happy Christmas Three by Authentique and one of the sentiments from the Christmas Sampler stamp set by Paper Smooches.
