Stockings Mini – Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! I’m back today to share another image from the 2022 Christmas Bear release from Colorado Craft Company. This time I paired the new Stocking Mini stamp set with an older Anita Jeram stamp called Santa Bunny. For me, these two images just naturally went together! I also have a new Copic coloring video for you featuring the Santa Bunny image. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

PRESENTS BEAR

The Presents Bear image was stamped on Hammermill smooth cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black ink. After coloring the image with Copic markers (see list below), I cut it out using the coordinating dies. The background layers were cut from white cardstock using the Infinity Rectangle Dies by Hero Arts and I added a bit of design paper as an accent. I added one of the sentiments from the Knitting Bear stamp set using Versafine Ink in Onyx Black.

Check out all the crafty inspiration from my friends at Colorado Craft Company!

2022 Card Design Superstar – Clean and Simple Genius

HEY FRIENDS! It’s that time of year again when My Favorite Things hosts its Card Design Superstar Contest. So today, I’m sharing my entry for the Clean and Simple Genius category featuring the Jingle All the Way and Holiday Penguin stamp sets. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

CLEAN AND SIMPLE GENIUS
SIZE
: A2
Featured Products:

This card was super simple to put together. I stamped images from the BB Jingle All the Way and the BB Holiday Penguins on Hammermill cardstock with Hero Arts Intense Black ink. The images were colored with Copic markers (see list below). Although coordinating dies are available for both sets, I only had the dies for Jingle All the Way, so I fussy cut all three images so that they would look consistent.

Next, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4″ x 5.25″ and stamped one of the sentiments from Jingle All the Way using Versafine ink. I applied foam squares on the back of the colored images and adhered them to the from of the card as shown. I glued craft foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest cardstock. And with that, I had a clean and simple card!

Two Penguin Chicks – Mo’s Digital Pencil

HEY FRIENDS! So here’s a news flash! I’ve been looking through my craft supplies and have started destashing some of my older stamps. I’m a one and done kind of crafter – I rarely color the same image twice so I have lots of stamps that I’ve colored once and will probably never use again. I’m short on space so I have to stick to being a active crafter rather than a collector of craft supplies. So I have an ever growning album with my available stamps over in the Facebook group “De-stash to Re-stash” (you need to be logged into Facebook for the link to work). Go take a look if you’re interested! Lots of good deals on stamps you know and love!

So today, I’m featuring the Two Penguin Chicks (merged) digital stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil. In the meantime, I’ve been working through my stash of digital stamp, particularly those from Mo’s Digital Pencil. I like working with digital images because I’m really short on physical storage space and digital stamps are easy to store on my computer. This particular stamp includes separate images of two chicks, though obviously I’m only featuring one of them here.

I wanted to keep the card design fairly simply. To be honest, I just wanted to color and not worry about design so as you’ll see, I stuck to one of my tried and true layouts. And as always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

The image was printed on Hammermill cardstock. If you’re hesitant to use digital stamps, check out my video over on my YouTube channel showing how I print digital stamps for Power Poppy. The image was colored with Copic markers (see list below). After I finished coloring the image, I used Versafine Ink to stamp a sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments stamp set. I trimmed the panel with the second largest die in the Chunky A2 Scalloped Rectanges die set and backed it with craft foam for dimension. Next, I cut a piece of design paper to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and glued it to the front of an A2 cardbase. I finished by assembling the layers as shown.

That’s all for me today! See you again soon!
