Happy Holidays to Everyone

I'm heading out to the country to spend Christmas with some dear friends. When I return, my sister is coming out from Vancouver. I miss her SO much and I can't wait to see her!

I'd like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. May the season bring you love, joy, peace & happiness.

I believe this snowman stamp is from Stampin' Up. I colored the image with watercolor pencils and used the Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. Stickles were added to the snowflake punchies.

Day 2 - Karen Stolper Designs

I think I should have captured this photo with a white backdrop. Oh well, you get the idea.

Have a super day and thanks for looking!

Day 1 - Karen Stolper

A dear friend of mine let me stamp out some images using Karen Stolper's line of stamps from American Art Stamp Co. These stamps are so much fun and I have enough cards made up to share a card a day with you for at least a week. I hope you don't get bored with the colors as they are pretty much all the same. LOL.

The images are stamped with black Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Next, I built up layers of ink by using a sponge. Finally, I colored the images in with Twinkling H2Os and added some Peel-Off stickers or punched snowflakes for some added bling.

Also, I made myself a light studio to photograph my cards and really they don't come out too shabby! LOL. The price was certainly right; it cost me about $5. in fabric and everything else (roll of heavy vellum, cardboard box, velcro and Ott Lite I already had kicking around this ole house).

So, here's the first card I made. Actually, this photo isn't exactly the best one, and I probably should have used a white background rather than the blue, but heck bear with me, I'm still learning.

Thanks for stopping by!
