Featured products:

To start, I created an A2 top folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest cardstock and cut an A2 piece of design paper. I glued the background panel to the cardbase and set them aside.

I stamped the image from the Anita Jeram Paint the Town by Colorado Craft Company on a piece of Hammermill Smooth Cardstock. After coloring the image with Copic markers (see list below), I trimmed the panel to 2.75″ x 4.25″.

Next, I cut a piece of Black Licorice Cardstock by My Favorite Things to 3.75″ x 4.25″ and stamped the sentiment along the bottom with Hero Arts Pigment Ink in Unicorn. I sprinkled Nuvo Embossing Powder in Glacier White and heat set the powder.

Finally, I applied craft foam to the back of the image layer and assembled all the layers as shown.

That’s all for me today! Thanks for stopping by!

This one took a little engineering to put together. For the card base, I cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest to 4.25″ x 11″ and scored at 5.5″.

For the image layer, I cut a piece of Hammermill Smooth White Cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Then I positioned the images and sentiments from the Anita Jeram Christmas Hats set inside the windows and stamped them with Nuvo Hybrid Ink in Black Shadow. I added one of the small snowflakes from the Big & Bold – Slimline Nordic Snowflakes set, stamped with Versafine Clair in Tulip Red. As a result, all the images were stamped and positioned in place on a single sheet of cardstock. The images were colored with the following Copic markers:

Anita Jeram Conga Line by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! We’re halfway through the week so it’s time for a happy dance and who better to lead the Conga line than the adorable Anita Jeram critters. I’ve had this stamp on my list for awhile and finally got around to coloring it. I love an image that makes me smile whenever I look at it!

As always, I’ve linked the supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Rowhouse Greetings | Anita Jeram Conga Line by Colorado Craft Company

Products featured:

I stamped the Conga Line image on a piece of Hammermill 100# Smooth Cardstock using Nuvo Hybrid Ink in Black Shadow. The image was colored with Copic markers (see list below). Afterwards, I added clear Wink of Stella Glitter to each of the hats. The sentiment was stamped using Versafine Clair in Nocturne. I sprinkled clear embossing powder over the ink and heat set it.

This is a large image so there’s not much more to the card layout. I cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp Says Cardstock in Fog to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and adhered it to my cardbase. I glued craft foam to the back of the image panel for dimension, but you can use foam tape if you prefer. I centered the image panel on the cardbase and that’s all she wrote!

Hope you enjoyed today’s project! See you again soon!
