SP & Co. "Three Winter Birds"

Here is another card I made using SP & Co. stamp titled "Three Winter Birds" This card was a challenge for me. I am limited on copic colors and I wanted each bird to have their own color.

Here's the recipe:

Card stock: PTI Dark Chocolate
Patterned paper: Paper Studio "Santa & Friends
Stamp: Three Winter Birds, SP & Co. Bold Sentiments II: Holiday
Dies: MFT STAX circle 1& 2
Other: PTI twine
Copics: E08  E11  E35  E37  YR24  Y38  Y32  G24  YG 67  W1  B0000

Northwood Stamp Calla Lily( PP8490)

Today I have a card that isn't a Christmas card! Amazing!!!
 I got this stamp for my birthday(in June) from my son, Andy. I hadn't inked it up so I decided to take a break from Christmas and do something else. I chose non - traditional colors for these flowers. I haven't ever seen them in red but I thought the card came out nice! I would love to see red Calla Lillies! They would be beautiful !

Penny Black "Chill Day"

Hello! I have yet another Christmas card to share. I am loving making Christmas items so far! I know its not even December yet..but I must get ahead of the game.

So, today I used this super cute Penny Black stamp called "Chill Day" It was a quick image to color. This card went together very quickly so I made a few.

I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx black and used clear embossing powder and heat set it. I then colored it up with my copics. I only used: R 27  R29  E 50  E 51.

The paper is from Bazzil "Countsown to Christmas" paper pack from this year.

The sentiment stamp I picked up from Hobby Lobby, I really liked the font. I ribbon was from Walmart.

Thanks for stopping by!

Penny Black "Jolly Friends"

Hello Again!
I have another post! I will be adding many new cards in the next few days! I have been really busy creating and having fun lately!!

This is a stamp from the Penny Black "Jolly Friends" set. I thought it was so cute! I stamped this image in Versafine and added clear embossing powder. I heated that up with my heat tool. This is a new technique for me. I discovered this when the stamp I was using didn't make a clear impression. Using the Versafine ink and embossing with clear I found the image stamped clear!

This technique is safe to use with my copic markers!

Thanks so much for visiting! If you have any questions, please let me know and I will be happy to answer them.

Thanks again and have a super day!

Stampendous Christmas Truck with Tree


I have been really busy making a lot of cards this past week.
I hope to get many posted and linked up here on the blog soon!
The first card I have to post is a Christmas card. I purchased the stamp at Michaels last week when they had the stamps on sale. I really liked this one, because it seems to lean more on the masculine side of cards. As many people who are card makers know, masculine cards can be somewhat of a challenge. (At least for me)

I colored this image using my copics and used Christmas pattern paper to finish up the card. I colored this image twice as you can see, one the truck is colored in red and the other the truck is colored in blue.

Which one is your favorite?

SP&Co. Sledding Penguins Tag

Hello! Today I have another tag to share! I used SP&Co. again to create this tag.

First, I made the background paper using Iced spruce, Tumbled glass and Chipped Sapphire. I used my blending tool and beginning with the lightest color I applied the inks to my white card stock. Lightly blending the colors together until I liked the finished paper.I set this paper aside to dry.

I stamped the penguin image on to C.C. Designs copic quality CS. Colored the image in with my copics. Then I cut out the penguins.

Once my background paper was dry I die cut it out using MFT Vertical Greeting die and cut off one end. I stamped the small snowflake on the background paper using SP&co. "Fancy Snowflakes." Added Recollections fine glitter to the center of each snowflake.

I used pop dots to adhere the penguins to the tag.  I then stamped in PTI Blueberry Sky the sentiment to the tag using Amy R's "Frosty Sentiments.

I topped the tag off with a few blue ribbons I got from Hobby Lobby.

Have a super day!

SP&Co. Tag (Snowman and Snowdog little birdie)

Today I have another tag to share. First I began by making the background paper. I used bundled sage and peeled paint distress inks. Rubbed them on the paper using a blending tool to make the green background. I then sprayed the paper with Gold shimmer from Imagine Crafts.

I let the paper dry. I then die cut out the tag using PTI "Tag Sale #3" from my background paper.

I used the SP&Co. Stitched Journal card die and cut out the starburst shape.

On this shape I stamped the letters J and Y in PTI "New Leaf", the letters are from SP&Co."Big Build a Banner #2" and the bird is from SP&Co. "Snowman and Snowdog".

I stamped the bird

image in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored the image with copics:
 bird - R29  R35  R89   branch- E25  E29

The paper I used  for the sentiment was from PTI- Pure Poppy and the
patterned paper was from Hobby Lobby "Christmas Traditions"

The finishing touches are sequins from Joann's and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
