Especially Micey!

I’m over on the Passionate Paper Creations blog today with a card using one of the adorable critters from Penny Black stamp set Especially Micey teamed with Creative Basics dies.

I stamped the image on a piece of Copic X-Press It Blending Card that I cut using the second largest die in the Basic Stitched Flag Die Set. I colored the image with Copic markers using the colors listed below. Afterwards I used the remaining die sets to cut shapes from various design papers which I layered on my card base using thin foam squares. I love how cleanly these dies cut the paper and the stitching adds texture and interest. Hope this project gives you some crafty inspiration!

Luminous Bouquet

I’m still playing catch up with all the new digital releases from Power Poppy this week. This is the last one that I needed to color (yes – needed!). Just look at all those beautiful flowers and leaves! To be honest, this image was a little overwhelming when I looked at it the first time because, well — LOOK AT ALL THOSE FLOWERS AND LEAVES! But I just took it one flower at a time, making one color decision at a time. I matched the colored image with a rainbow plaid from Lawn Fawn and a scalloped die from Tonic and by the end it all came together.

Felt with the Heart

Everytime I go to a scrapbook store, I come home with more paper. Beautiful florals, petite polka dots, plaids — you name it and it’s probably in my stash. Some of it is so pretty that I almost hate to cut it. But the advantage of accumulating so much paper is that you have more opportunities for mixing and matching colors and patterns across different companies. Here I managed to match paper from Lawn Fawn, Echo Park Paper Company, and Core’dination and while I’m sad to use up some familiar papers, I now have room to spare for some new favorites.

Love the Weekend

I’m over on the LDRS Inspiration blog today with this fun and flirty stamp by All Dressed Up. I stamped the image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored the image using Copic markers. I cut the image layer using the Fancy Rectangles & Layers die set which is one of my favorite Creative Basics dies. I paired the image with coordinating papers from Lawn Fawn.

I have to admit that it was a nice change of pace from making Christmas cards!

A Thorny Affair

Back today with another holiday card, this time featuring this cute image from Penny Black. I love the Penny Black animal images particularly the holiday themed images. The menagerie of mice, cats and hedgehogs always bring a smile to my face. Add some colorful design paper from Doodlebug, a Lawn Fawn die cut from foil paper and a bit of ribbon and you have a quick, colorful, and fun card that goes together quickly.

Here’s a look at the inside.
