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.

Card available on Etsy — stop on by!

New Baby

Rowhouse Greetings | New Baby | New Baby [Detail] by Mo's Digital PencilStill working on new baby cards for my Etsy shop. Today I’m adding this card which features 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!

Wreath Kiss Redux

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.

You know the drill! Available in my Etsy shop so stop by and take a look!

Merry Christmas!

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.

Since I’ll be making this card for my Etsy shop, I needed a way to print and cut the top layer quickly and consistently. As a result, I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut the image layer and to added the printed stitched border. Also, my friend at Moonlight Greetings suggested using the original Copic markers for coloring in tight spaces since the marker nib is smaller. She was right on the mark and it made shading the berries much easier.

Season’s Greetings: Wondrous Wreath

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.
