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.

Here’s a look at the inside. I used a coordinating paper from the I Love Winter Collection by Echo Park Paper Co.

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.

This is the first card. Stay tuned – tomorrow I’ll reveal the second card.

Oh Carp!

Yeah, we’ve all done it! Realized after the fact that we’ve forgotten an important birthday. One year I completely forgot my husband’s birthday. Definitely an “Oh Carp!” situation. Luckily for me, he lost track of the date as well and didn’t realize that it had been his birthday until the next day when he was surprised by the sudden appearance of cake and ice cream.
