Happy Holidays

Hi and welcome back. Today I'm over on the SumMore Fun Blog sharing a few Happy Holiday cards featuring the Raisin Boat - Treemendous Stamp Set. I love stamp sets that give you loads of creative options and this one does not disappoint. 

Both cards are super simple, stamping with your favorite color inks and layering on patterned paper, easy peasy. You can use whatever color ink best matches your background paper. My favorite inks right now are Memento Inks, I've been using Memento for years and they never fail me.

Masculine Happy Holidays

Hi and welcome back. Today I'm over on the SumMore Fun Blog sharing a masculine Holiday card. Let me start out by saying, I was really not feeling the Elk Silhouette In Snow Stamp BUT I grew to love it. Hey, I'm just keeping it real! It had nothing to do with the stamp and more to do with me. If you look at previous post by me you will soon understand what I am saying.  I think this is one of the best masculine cards to date for me and it's really not that complicated. 

The first thing I did was stamp the snow globe, color with COPICs and fussy cut the bottom out. I stamped the snow globe again on white cardstock with Gray Flannel Memento Ink, colored the base of the snowglobe dark gray, masked the globe with post-it's, stamped the elk image using Distress Oxide ink - Faded Jeans. Add 3D mounting foam to the cut-out base of the snowglobe and position over stamped base. Add sequins to give it a faux shaker card look and it gives that beautiful shimmer all snowglobes ha…

Thank You to our Veterans!


Happy Friday, everyone! Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a few Thank You cards that I created using the easel card from the SDS Halloween Soiree Kit and the Stars and Stripes card from the JGW Stars and Stripes Card Kit

Using the Stars and Stripes card components I created a shaker card filled with red and blue sequins and white seed beads. The striped layer from the Stars and Stripes card makes creating a shaker super simple and the easel card base really shows it off. These two files work beautifully together. I used the Thank You sentiment from the My Hero Kit.
The second card I made I did a little stamping using stamps from my stash and components from the SDS Halloween Soiree Easel Card, the cardbase and a few of the layers for matting. Even though this is from a Halloween Kit it makes a perfect cardbase for all your easel cards. 
The stamp set is by Raisin Boat - Strokes of Pride.
