Little Elf Finn by Mo’s Digital Pencil

THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY! Even though I’m retired, I’m still happy to see the week come to an end. No plans for the weekend so I’m looking forward to a few quiet days before the holiday rush of the coming weeks. 

So here I am! Another day, another elf! This time my card features Little Elf Fin by Mo’s Digital Pencil. Lately, I’ve been avoiding coloring images in the traditional reds and greens of the holiday, but decided it suited this cheeky elf.

Little Elf Mim by Mo’s Digital Pencil

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m still on a roll coloring holiday images. Although I’ve only been coloring a few years, I’ve already accumulated quite a collection of stamps. Recently, I realized that like many crafters, I actually have two hobbies: one is collecting craft supplies and the other is actually using them. So last night, I decided to look through some of the images that have been waiting patiently in my stash to finally make it onto a card.

I’ve long been a fan of Maurie Manning and I have many of her digital stamps as well as those sold as rubber stamps by Penny Black Stamps. Her series of stamps featuring the elves Mim, Finn, Kin and Pippa are among my favorites. Although I’ve colored this image before, I decided to try my hand at it again with non-traditional holiday colors.

Again, I kept the card design simple so that the image could take center stage. It’s getting close to Christmas and I just might have cards ready to mail if I don’t waste time agonizing over layout!

New Digital Image! Country Home Christmas by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING! I back today with another card featuring one of the new digital images from Power Poppy. This time I used the Country Home Christmas digital stamp, previously released in clear format as Simple Joys.

I love the simplicity of this image so I kept the card design simple as well and opted for vintage tones of mauve, teal and silver.

I added clear Wink of Stella to the ornaments to add a little sparkle. I added the sentiment from the new Filigree Tree digital stamp to complete the design.

New Digital Image! Mittens and Merriment by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Yesterday, Power Poppy released TEN new digital stamps for images that were previously available only in clear format. I’ve been on a coloring frenzy the past few days, making up for lost time when I had to limit Copic time due to tendinitis in my elbow.

I’m back today with a familiar image. I recently taught a class at the Queen’s Ink featuring an image from the Bough Wow Wow stamp set which featured non-traditional holiday colors. So when Marcella released the same image as a digital stamp (this time as Mittens and Merriment), I decided to make another card, this time using more traditional Christmas colors.

I rummaged through my stash of holiday themed paper and found that I still had a sheet of Vintage Christmas Three by Authentique which mimicked the snowflake pattern on the mitten. By using the digital version, I was able to scale the image as necessary so that I could also incorporate one of my lesser used dies for something different.

Hand Lettered Jolly Good by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I spent the day with my husband and parents. I decided that I was not going to cook so I had all the dinner fixings catered — turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, and mixed vegetables followed by pumpkin pie and ice cream. My mother loves jigsaw puzzles so we brought three new ones over to the house with us and spent the day working on puzzles in between bouts of watching football and holiday eating.

But now it’s on to the next holiday, which in my case is Christmas! So I’m back today with a relatively simple card featuring one of the new digital stamps by Power Poppy – Hand Lettered Jolly Good.
