I Know It's Early...

Pin It

but I've been waiting to make a card with this stamp! This is a new release from amuse art stamps and it's so cute!

My family is coming up for New Year's and they asked me to put together a mini stamp camp. There will be kids joining us so I wanted to make a couple no fuss cards. I used amuse notecards for the base and the dp is from paper salon. I added a dot of stickle to the nose and a pink twinkle sticker to the middle of the flower. Easy peasy!

Hi Friend

Pin It

My sister loved my frosty stamp so she asked me to make a couple snowman cards. I decided to make this a non-christmas card and added the sentiment 'hi friend' at the bottom. I went a little crazy with the dazzling diamonds but I guess too much sparkle never hurt anyone.

Wreath Girl

Pin It

I'm still making christmas cards! I'm almost done...I hope!

This card is for a friend of mine. She's quite girly and I thought she would like this girl w/the gold crown. I made this one as sparkly as possible. I used dazzling diamonds on the wreath bow and the clear sakura gelly roll pen on the dress and stockings. I also added some snow for extra sparkle. The sentiment is from American Art Stamps. It's a little hard to see on the picture but it came out nice on the card.

Goodbye Frosty

Pin It

The time has finally come to say goodbye to Frosty. This set will be retired at the end of this month. This stamp set was my first purchase from Stampin' Up two years ago. Seems so long ago....

I decided I should make a few more christmas cards with my favorite snowman. I used prismacolor markers for the hat, scarf and snow. I used my xyron and covered him with dazzling diamonds. I stuck with the retired theme and used basic grey's fruitcake paper.

Goodbye'll always have a special place in my stamp drawer

The Lady and the Snowman

Pin It

I've been so busy making Amy's cards, I decided to take a break and join Anna's sketch challenge.

I decided to use another one of my festive stick people stamps. Since these stick people are a bit hard to color, I used my prisma pencils and sakura gelly roll pens. I tied the colors from the paper into her outfit and added dazzling diamonds as a final touch. Lady and snowman look very merry and bright!

Christmas Cards for Amy

Pin It

My friend Amy enlisted my services and asked if I could make 250 cards for her personal training business. I don't know what I was thinking when I said yes but I'm happy to say I'm almost DONE!

Of course, I had to figure out something that would be extremely easy. I found this great stamp at my fav stamp store in Issaquah and thought it would be perfect. The notecards are pearlized pearl from Paper Accents. I used sakura gelly roll pens around the stars, trees, and ornaments. The end result came out simply divine.
