Peace & Joy

Hi and welcome to my blog! I hope that you all had a very nice Thanksgiving. We have had warm weather here for awhile, but today feels more like Christmas. I want to share a Christmas card I made using this cute little mouse on his snowboard. I miss seeing my boys snowboarding. They are now grown and we are empty nesters. This little mouse reminds me of those fun times.



I cut out the Tim Holtz Christmas tree,  applied Color Bursts around the cut out, then inlaid the tree into the cut out. I added clear glitter glue on the tree. The image was stamped and colored with alcohol markers. I used Diamond Dust glitter on the bottom of the card. The saying was computer generated. I created a banner for the saying and adhered it to the top of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you will be blessed with peace and joy this Christmas season!

Patterned Paper #22

Hi and Happy Thanksgiving! I can't believe Thanksgiving is almost here. I am showing another card today in my Patterned Paper series. I paper pieced the truck and the pumpkins were stamped on different patterned papers and fussy cut.



The background was made by using a border stamp (unknown) and stamping it with different colors across the card stock. The truck stamp is by Printworks and the pumpkin stamp is by DJ Inkers. I colored the mirrors and bumper using a silver paint pen. The saying is by Just For Fun Stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Stockings

Hi and welcome to my blog. We have a wintry day here today so I made a Christmas card using this cute House Mouse stamp!


I stamped the image near the bottom of the card, used an exacto knife to cut across and in between the stockings. I used scissors to cut around the bottoms of the stockings. The image was colored using Tombow markers. The nails were colored with a silver metallic paint pen. I used word stickers for the saying. Blue card stock was adhered on the inside of the card. 

This is how the card looks when it is opened.



Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Patterned Paper #21

Hi! I hope you are having a good day. I am back again with some cards I made using up those patterned paper scraps I have everywhere! I was a glutton for punishment using this leaf die to inlay all these tiny pieces! I love using this leaf die from Gina Marie, so once I started I was on a roll as you can see.





Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope this has given you some ideas on how you might use up those paper scraps. Have a lovely day!

Patterned Paper #20

Hi and welcome to my blog. Today I am showing another way to use up those paper scraps I have stored in many ziplock bags!


I used a fun new stamp from Technique Junkies that I recently bought at a stamp show. It was colored with alcohol markers. I added some enamel dot eyes to the cat. I cut one and a half inch squares and placed them at different angles across the top of the card. The saying was computer generated and cut out by using an unbranded dye.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

White Christmas

Hi and welcome to my blog. I have been making Christmas cards throughout the year so that I don't get in a panic to make cards right before the season. I want to show you a Christmas card I made using a House Mouse stamp that I have just used for the first time.



I used two embossing folders to add texture to the card. The white frame and the swirl tree dies are from Memory Box. I punched out two snowflakes and added clear Stickles glitter to them. The image was colored with alcohol markers, fussy cut and added to the card. I  made "marshmallows" by using small square pop dots and adding clear Stickles glitter to them too.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Time To Celebrate

Hi and welcome to my blog. I want to show you a card that I made for a couple of challenges. As usual I am in need of birthday cards so I made a birthday card using a stamp from the Penny Black stamp set called Time To Celebrate.



I made the background using a splattered dot stencil and light blue ink. The frame is a Spellbinder die. I colored the image using alcohol markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a good day!
