A couple of weeks ago I stopped by The Queen’s Ink in Savage Mills to see what new things I absolutely couldn’t live without. And while I have an ample stash of paper, I couldn’t resist a pack of the new Perfectly Plaid Collection by Lawn Fawn. Lots of fun plaids that compliment rather than overpower a simple card image like Mo Manning’s Spit Happens. I found a pack of the 12×12 inch sheets, but it’s also available as a 6×6 pad.
Paper: Neenah Solar White #110; Kristin from the Perfectly Plaid Collection by Lawn Fawn Stamps: Spit Happens by Mo’s Digital Pencil; Little Bundle by Lawn Fawn; Sweetest Gift by Stampin’ Up! Die: Stitched Rectangles by Simon Says Stamp!
Copics: E000, E00, E02, E93 (skin); B0000, B000 (clothing); E30, E31, E34, BV20, E93 (rabbit); BV000, E30, E31, E34 (bottle)
Items marked with an asterisk (*) were provided by a store or the manufacturer. All other items were personally purchased.
Today I’m featuring the New Baby digital stamp by Mo’s Digital Pencil. I love the character and the detail in Mo Manning’s drawings.
I struggled with the colors for this image because I wanted to capture the folds in the bassinet fabric but given them a soft, translucent quality. So I used pale blues and a soft yellow to try to capture those qualities. Hope you enjoy the end result!

I colored this image a few weeks ago and posted a sneak peak. Last night I finally got around to putting it together as a card. While I can’t say that I’m fond of coloring leaves in general, I do like how this one turned out, especially with all of the green combinations.

OK — it’s a little early. But when your holiday cards are handmade, you’ve got to start early! Besides when you get to work with a simple, but beautiful digi such as Hollyberries by Power Poppy, the holiday season can’t come soon enough.

I don’t use a lot of Stampin’ Up! products, but this wreath has always been a favorite — it may even have been my first SU! purchase. And this one is a little different for me — all stamping and no coloring.
