Fall Friends & Winter Mishaps

Squished!

Just finished up another class at Photo Scraps. This was actually a make up class for me. I was supposed to teach this one a couple of weeks ago, but the combination of an unexpectedly strong snow/sleet storm and a flat tire while on my way to the class forced a postponement. Although I had a spare  (and plenty of help to change the tire), I didn’t realize that my car has wheel locks and I didn’t have a key.

So I had to call a tow truck – and 6.5 hours later it finally arrived. It was a long day to say the least! But the next day I was back on the road thanks to the service guys at the dealership.

Finally!

So with no further mishaps, we finished up this class for the month. This one was particularly fun because we used the same stencil three different ways. Hopefully this will inspire my students to incorporate stencils into their projects and look towards different ways of using them.

Below are the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. All items were personally purchased except those marked with an asterisk (*) . I never share a product I do not like. Read more.

Little Elf Finn by Mo’s Digital Pencil

THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY! Even though I’m retired, I’m still happy to see the week come to an end. No plans for the weekend so I’m looking forward to a few quiet days before the holiday rush of the coming weeks. 

So here I am! Another day, another elf! This time my card features Little Elf Fin by Mo’s Digital Pencil. Lately, I’ve been avoiding coloring images in the traditional reds and greens of the holiday, but decided it suited this cheeky elf.

Little Elf Mim by Mo’s Digital Pencil

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m still on a roll coloring holiday images. Although I’ve only been coloring a few years, I’ve already accumulated quite a collection of stamps. Recently, I realized that like many crafters, I actually have two hobbies: one is collecting craft supplies and the other is actually using them. So last night, I decided to look through some of the images that have been waiting patiently in my stash to finally make it onto a card.

I’ve long been a fan of Maurie Manning and I have many of her digital stamps as well as those sold as rubber stamps by Penny Black Stamps. Her series of stamps featuring the elves Mim, Finn, Kin and Pippa are among my favorites. Although I’ve colored this image before, I decided to try my hand at it again with non-traditional holiday colors.

Again, I kept the card design simple so that the image could take center stage. It’s getting close to Christmas and I just might have cards ready to mail if I don’t waste time agonizing over layout!

New Digital Image! Country Home Christmas by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING! I back today with another card featuring one of the new digital images from Power Poppy. This time I used the Country Home Christmas digital stamp, previously released in clear format as Simple Joys.

I love the simplicity of this image so I kept the card design simple as well and opted for vintage tones of mauve, teal and silver.

I added clear Wink of Stella to the ornaments to add a little sparkle. I added the sentiment from the new Filigree Tree digital stamp to complete the design.
