Love & Magic by Penny Black

HEY FRIENDS! Another quick post (but I’ve compensated with a coloring video!) featuring the Love & Magic stamp set by Penny Black. This card will be the one that I send my parents’ this holiday. My mother loves teddy bears and so when I saw this stamp, I knew it would make the perfect Christmas card for them. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

I stamped the image from the Love & Magic stamp set on Hammermill cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored it using Copic markers. Once the image was colored, I trimmed the panel to 2-3/4 x 4-3/4 inches. Then I cut a piece of design paper from the Cheerful Plaid 6×6 Paper Pad by My Favorite Things to 3-1/2 x 5-1/8 inches as the background. I applied craft foam to the back of the image panel, but you could use foam tape for dimension. The layers were assembled as shown above. I stamped one of the sentiments from the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set by MFT Stamps using Versafine ink along the left side to finish off the card.

Copic Coloring Video for Love & Magic

I’ve added a Copic coloring video — if it, does not appear below, watch it HERE on YouTube!

I used the main image from the Candy Cane Mice stamp set for my card. The set also includes single candy cane stamp and two individual candies. Coordinating dies are sold separately. All of the image was stamped on Hammermill Smooth cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic markers (see marker lists below). After coloring, the image panel was trimmed using Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle dies and I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clare ink in Nocturne. I adhered craft foam to the back for dimension using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive. then glued front panel was then glued to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest.

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

TODAY’S PROJECT

Anita Jeram Dear Santa by Colorado Craft Company

I have three cards for you today, all created using the Anita Jeram Dear Santa stamp set. The set includes clear photopolymer stamps with a dog, a bunny and a mouse writing and mailing letters to Santa in a snow-covered mailbox. The stamps can be used with the coordinating Dear Santa complete dies set (AJ733-D) and the Dear Santa single die set (AJ745-D) both sold separately. This stamp set includes 7 images and 5 sentiments.

Once I got started, I was quickly on a roll making cards. Coordinating dies are also available for this stamp set, although I didn’t use them here.

All of the images and sentiments were stamped on Hammermill Smooth cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic markers (see marker lists below). After coloring, the image panel was trimmed using Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle dies and I adhered craft foam to the back for dimension using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive. The front panel was then glued to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest.

So let’s take a closer look!

Sledging Party by Lili of the Valley

HEY FRIENDS! I’m back with another edition of Nancy and Jill Color Together! If you saw last month’s post, you know that Jill Killeen of Killeen House Studio asked me to participate in a monthly challenge with her where we would color the same image and see how we each interpreted it. This month, I selected Sledging Party by Lili of the Valley for our challenge. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

This image was a little more complicated than I expected. Once I started coloring, I realized that I had to sort out all the arm, legs, scarfs and mittens. So to keep things simple, I selected specific color combinations and used them throughout. This simplified the color scheme and provided continuity in the image.

Enough about me! Here’s Jill’s interpretation!

A few similarities with mine – I suspect that we used some of the same combinations, although rumor has it that Jill used nearly 50 markers! Check her full blog post for all the details.

That’s all for today!
