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.

Let’s Be Merry

This weekend, I’m a demonstrator for Demo Day at my local scrapbook store, PhotoScraps. So I’ve put together two cards that are simple in design, employ basic coloring techniques, and can be quickly put together. To facilitate preparation, I used my Misti to pre-stamp all the cards – a wonderful devise that makes stamping multiple cards consistently (and straight) much easier. This card definitely benefits from its use.

Thankful to Have You in My Life

I’ve been a fan of Stamping Bella for awhile and even bought a few stamps earlier in the year, but I’m just getting around to actually coloring any of them. This Tiny Townie is a particular favorite so with pumpkin season upon us, it was time to get coloring!

These Lawn Fawn plaid papers make mixing and matching patterns so much easier. One paper for the front and a coordinating paper for the inside.

Spit Happens (Redux)

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.
