We Wish You A Merry Christmas

I'm back with my second card for JustRite's Christmas Challenge. For this card I used the ornament stamp from Vintage Christmas. I painted the image with Twinkling H2O's, I love these sparkly paints! They have a little shimmer that is just perfect. I used a little vintage lace, some sponging, and some stitching. My old sewing machine is having a fit so I don't use it often, but broke it out tonight, and put it quickly back, it's still giving me a hard time, lol. I used some awesome May Arts twill ribbon, and embossed the round sentiment in gold powder. That's it for tonight, thank you so much for stopping by to see me :)

Let Heaven and Nature Sing...

Hi, happy Wednesday! Wow, it's been awhile since I have posted, just haven't had any mojo lately. When it rains, it pours, had a lot going on here, and none of it good, so I've just been kinda bummed lately. Anyway, trying to get back into things and what better way then with JustRite's last challenge of the year, make something Christmas. So I broke out my very favorite Christmas stamp, the cardinal from Christmas Treasures, my most used during the holidays, I love it! My image is colored with Prismacolor pencils, and I had this cardinal paper, just enough left how perfect! I have one more card for the challenge coming up shortly as soon as my batteries get enough juice, lol.

Christmas Blessings

Hi! I'm playing along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch. My sentiment is Christmas Blessings, a Plain Jane from Verve. I actually bought this stamp when it first came out last year, then some how lost it before I ever got a chance to ink it up. So I had to buy it again this year, I love that font!

For my background, I wanted to try something new to me. I stamped snowflakes from Glad Tidings onto watercolor paper and embossed them with clear powder, then painted over it with watercolor paint, I then stamped a large music background stamp over that. I love the wide striped ribbon from Stampin' Up. Well that's it for me today, hubby wants a lazy, watch movie day :) Thanks so much for popping by!

Happy, happy Friday! I am playing along with Flourishes noon time challenge from yesterday, The Christmas Sweets, use the colors red, white, and soft green. I don't really have a Christmas image that I thought fit those colors, and the challenge didn't say it had to be holiday or Christmas, so I hope I'm ok. :) I used my Windows to the World set, ah, I love this set the windows are so beautiful! I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils ,added some beautiful Stampin' Up ribbon, and a large brad. Check out the challenge here. Thank you so much for popping by for a peek, have a great weekend! :)

Tag You're It!

It's release week at Flourishes stamps, and I am playing along with yesterday's noon time challenge to make a tag. I cut a tag from a manila folder and inked up the gorgeous Paperwhites set, Flourishes has the most beautiful flowers! I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and sponged up the edges. I have a bottle of Graphite Glimmer Mist, I guess I was a little too close because I got a few large blobs, but I'm still happy with how it turned out. A little vintage lace, and that's it. Don't forget to check out this and the today's noon time challenge here. Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #143 ~ A new technique!

Hello! It is release week at Flourishes, they are already previewing the new holiday stamps, and oh my are they ever gorgeous! I am playing along with this week's Timeless Tuesday challenge, Double embossing. Beate has an amazing tutorial for it with a gorgeous card here. I have never tried this technique before and after seeing all of the DT cards I was excited to try it. For my double embossing I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a large oval Spellbinders die. My cake is from the Let Them Eat Cake set, I heat embossed it in white and then sponged over in pink. That's it for me today, check out all of the new goodies and the challenges at Flourishes here. Have a great day! :)

Let there be Peace on Earth

Hi there, I'm back with another card for JustRite's Christmas Linky Party. For this card I used this beautiful image from Christmas Treasures, (on sale now too!) Both the image and the border are embossed in gold, the background is dry embossed. I added a piece of sparkly scrap paper, a little distress ink on the edges, and that's it.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today! :)

Let Heaven and Nature Sing...

Hi there! Wow, I'm back with my third post today, I've just been stamping all day, lol! I made another card for JustRite's Christmas Linky Party. I just couldn't let the party end without using one of my favorite stamps. I love cardinals, and this stamp is beautiful! My image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and I used an embossing folder for a faux letterpress technique. I think even without the bow and layers to make the card easier for mailing, the card would still look very nice. I may have another card in me today, we will see, lol. Thanks so much for stopping in. :)

Christmas Tags

Good afternoon! I'm back with my second post today. The JustRite Linky Party is still going on, so you still have time to link up and check out all the fabulous inspiration!

I adore snowmen, I try to find some kind of snowman to add to my holiday decorations every year. I am determined to make my tags this year and am getting started now with my these darling snowmen from JustRite Stamps. I stamped them onto kraft, I love kraft! And colored them with Prismacolor pencils, I love the look and will definitely try coloring on kraft some more. Well, that's it for me today, thank you so much for taking the time to visit, have a wonderful day. :)

Merry Christmas

Good morning! I'm sharing a card that I made for the Snowy Delights challenge at Flourishes, capture that snowy sparkly feeling on your card. I used this gorgeous wreath from Flourishes stamped in blue and colored in different shades of blue. It doesn't show up well in the photograph, but I used glitters in blue, silver, and white. I love CAS cards for the holidays, so much easier to mail, and I love the blue and white combo. Thanks so much for taking a peek, have a great week! :)
