Ready, Set, Snow!

Another holiday card, this time using the Ready, Set, Snow! stamp set by Taylored Expressions. I added one of the lettered stamps by Hand Drawn Greetings by Woodware Craft Collection. I loved the pairing of these two stamps and together they make a simple, but effective central image for a card.

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.
