Christmas Mugs Colored Pencils on Kraft

This card is a little unique because it's my first time really coloring on kraft cardstock with colored pencils. If you follow me, you know I'm a copic girl but we all need to start somewhere right? So I started with this fun image from Pink & Main.

I colored my image with penciled onto Kraft cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die. 


 My background is layered with cardstock and pattern paper from the Jolly paper pack. I love this paper pack!


I also cut a piece of Kraft cardstock from the double stitched circle die from C.C. Designs and attached that to my card with foam tape. Then I attached the mug to the circle with foam tape as well. 



Something completely different I know but I hope you like it! It's definitely something I need to experiment with a little more.




C.C. Designs Santa card & video

Hi everyone! I'm sharing today a card I created using the new Santa stamp from C.C. Designs. This is part of the October release and he is just the cutest Santa ever! I have all the supplies listed at the bottom of the post. I also created a quick video how I colored this image and put the card together. You can view it here on the blog or on my youtube channel HERE.

I started off by stamping my image onto Neenah white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp black ink. Then I colored it up with my copics markers and cut out with my Scan n Cut. 


I stamped my sentiment using the Misti tool onto some black cardstock using Versamark ink. Then I heat embossed with Lawn Fawn White Embossing powder. I made sure to prep my cardstock first with an anti-static powder tool so my embossing powder doesn't stick to everything. 


I cut some beautiful white glitter cardstock using the Layered Stripe Die from Pink & Main and attached it to a piece of green cardstock. I added foam tape to my Santa image and sentiment to attach to the card. I added Nuvo Glitter Snow Blizzard drops to the sentiment but completely forget it looks different on black cardstock but that's ok. Still looks pretty cool. I finished it off with some Clear Wink of Stella to the hat, sleeves and present.

Quick and Simple Halloween/Birthday Card



Welcome back everyone! I'm participating in the 31 Night of Halloween with Whimsy Stamps! They have some fabulous Halloween images that you can use for you cards and projects. Today's card is going to be featuring Dracula Bite Stamp set and die. I also have a video available that you can watch here on my blog or on my youtube channel HERE.
This card is quick and simple yet is sure to bring a smile to your face! I thought the sentiment was fang-tastic!

I'm start out by stamping my Dracula image onto Neenah white cardstock with copic friendly ink and coloring with my copics markers. I then use the coordinating die to cut out around the image. I love the look of the images when they are cut out from dies! It leaves such a nice border.


Next, I'm going to stamp my sentiment onto my circle I cut from patterned paper and adhere that to my scallop circle I cut from black cardstock. I think this sentiment matches perfectly with the expression on Dracula's face! 


Dracula is adhered with some foam squares to give the card a little dimension.

This coordinating die also has these really cute bats on there that I placed around my card and added some glossy accents to. It looks so cool with them being shiny! The finishing touch is to add some black nuvo drops around the card.

Masking with Newton's Nook

Hi everyone! I'm here today to share a card I created for Inky Paws Challenge #57 from Newton's Nook. 

A little warning, if you see typos I'm truly sorry. I got a new computer yesterday and I am having the hardest time getting used to the keyboard for some reason. I'm trying to catch the typing errors but some may slip through. 

Onward to the card! Like I said, I have a new computer, and Apple Air. I worked on setting it up all day and needed to immerse myself in a card. So I did some masking and if you follow my blog you know I don't like to fussy cut haha. But it took my mind off of things.

The Inky Paws challenge is creating a card that is Fall Themed and when I think of Fall, pumpkins and leaves come to mind. I used a couple images from the Bootiful Night stamp set. I created a mask for both images and then stamped onto my card. Before I did anything else, I stamped my sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp.

I applied my masks and then distressed the background with Faded Denim and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink for the sky. I used Peeled Paint distress ink for the bottom.

I noticed as I was writing up my blog post that I didn't shade UNDER my pumpkins on the grass. I actually should have added shading there because they are sitting on the ground but completely spaced it.

Then I colored my images in copic markers. I finished off the card by layering it onto some white and orange cardstock. For a finishing touch, I added Dandelion Yellow Nuvo drops to the pumpkin faces and a couple Nuvo Morning Dew drops around the card.

Kraftin Kimmie Blog Hop

Woohoo! It's finally here!!

Today we are celebrating the 
amazing CHRISTMAS release of ALL of our 
NEW October
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!

ALL FOUR new sets are NOW available in the Krafty Shop!

My card for today features these darling reindeer from Reindeer Games. I can't get enough of this stamp! I decided this time to make a shaker card because when I think of winter I think of sparkles and this card is filled with sparkle! 

I started out by distressing two panels of cardstock using Bristol Smooth cardstock and Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire distress ink.

One panel, I die cut with my Blueprint 29 die to create the stitched border and the other I die cut using my the same die but a different piece to create the window. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the window and then added two layers of foam tape.


I had colored the cabin using copic markers on a piece of Neenah white cardstock and made it slightly bigger then the bottom window frame.I added some glitter and attached the cabin piece. I also added some sequins mix to the top portion and attached a distressed piece behind that. This actually came from when I diecut the window pieces out. Hope that makes sense. I wanted it to look kind of like the sky.


My reindeer at stamped on Neenah White cardstock and colored with copic markers. Then I cut them out with my scan n cut machine. You can also fussy cut them too. I added my shaker piece to the previous distressed panel which sits on a white piece of cardstock measuing 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I added the reindeer in the corners and we are all done!

Sneak Peek Day #4 - Reindeer Games - Kraftin Kimmie Stamps



Welcome to Sneak Peak day 4 for Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! Oh I'm in love with this set! I have a card to share with you today but as you can see from the banner you kind of get a sneaky peek of another card I made ... shhhhhh!! More on that card tomorrow so be sure to check back!

Our last stamp set is from fabulous artist Becky Pearce!!!
It's called REINDEER GAMES!

The set comes with main images, several accessory stamps and also some fun coordinating sentiments! There's a total of TWENTY cutie pie stamps!!!



Giving credit where credit is due ... I pulled my inspiration for this card from Shari Carroll. I just used what I happen to have on hand to recreate.

I started out with cutting a window frame and masking my white panel so it left the open white space in the middle. Then I added some Salty Ocean distress ink  and removed my mask. I cut a couple trees from the Oh Christmas Trees die in multiple colors. 

My adorable reindeer is stamped on Neenah white cardstock and stamped with Simon Says Stamp black ink. Then I colored in with my copic markers and cut out with my Scan n Cut machine. 



I stamped a sentiment from this set onto black cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with Gina K white embossing powder. Then I cut it down into a strip to go across my card.


I attached one tree on the distressed centerpiece and one tree in front, slightly over the black sentiment strip. Then added my little reindeer on the other side. I attached the panel onto some Moonstone Blue cardstock from Lawn Fawn. I love this color blue! I've been looking for something like this!

Sneak Peek Day #3 - Merry & Bright Birdies - Kraftin Kimmie Stamps


Welcome to day 3 of Sneak Peeks from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! This set is just so sweet and so many possibilities to it! 

This set is by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen and it's SO unique!

It's MERRY & BRIGHT BIRDIES!!!
This fabulous set comes with FIVE main images of these fluffy peeps, plus super fun sentiments and accessory stamps!!

I started with my background ink blending Salty Ocean and Faded Jean Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock. Then I mixed some glitter with texture paste on my craft mat and applied it to my card using a snowfall stencil. It's hard to see in the pictures but it really sparkles! 


I used a Memory Box Pine Branch Oval Frame die to create the trees and adhered that to my snowfall panel once it had dried. I then trimmed around the oval. I love the dimension it has! 


My tweet little birdie is colored with copics on Neenah white cardstock and cut out with my Scan n Cut machine. I also stamped a sentiment from this set in the corner of a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base and attached the oval panel. Ten added my sweet little bird to the middle. I adore this scene and these birds are so precious ! 


I was in a zone when creating this card I completely forgot to write my colors down for the bird image - Sorry :-(
