Thank you!

Hello friends!  I have finally had some time to sit down and "power blog" so I'll be catching up on sharing a number of projects that I created over the past few months but haven't shared with you all yet.

This is a card I created around Earth Day earlier this year.  I used the "World Love" stamp set from Your Next Stamp.  To keep my card "earthy" I embossed some kraft cardstock with a woodgrain embossing folder and inked around the edges with some Distress Ink.  I finished off the card with some twine and a wood button.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Stamps: World Love set from Your Next Stamp
Papers: The Paper Company kraft cardstock, Neenah white cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, brown distress ink
Accessories:  Copic markers, white gel pen, The Twinery Twine, wood button

Merry and Bright!

Hello again!  Keeping in the Holiday spirit, I have another card to share with you today using the ever-so-cute Walter the skating penguin stamp.  Just a final reminder that Wednesday is the last day of the Purple Onion Designs Holiday Sale.  You can save 25% off all stamps until December 10th!!

I took a recent visit to Hobby Lobby in Buffalo NY (we don't have that chain in Canada) and I picked up this fabulous Chalkboard Christmas paper pad.  I thought it would look wonderful with this penguin stamp.  The sentiment strip came in the pad and I just added some white pigment ink around the edges to make it "snowy".  I added some red and green card stock under my image to make the image stand out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Let it snow!

Hello friends!!  Here's another card I did with the new Stacey Yacula Holiday release stamps from Purple Onion Designs.  Just a reminder that the annual holiday sale is on until December 10, 2014, where you can save 25% off all stamps!!

Today I have a card I created using "Henry" the skating bear and the Lighted Trees stamp.  I added lots of layers of white cardstock and some clear Stickles to add some bling.  It's difficult to tell from the photo but the lights on the trees also have some glitter added and they look like twinkling lights.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
