Valentine's Day Card #1 for 2016

Hello Hello Hello. 

It feels great to be back!! Today I share with you my very first how-to card video. I'm a bit rusty but I'm happy to report that the feeling for creating new designs is still working. I hope you enjoy my new creation.

I am also entering my first card to one of my favorite Blog Challenges, Lawnscaping Challenges. The designers are always a wonderful inspiration and I always enjoy their work.

My Style Stamps New Release

Hello, I am super excited for this next holiday release from My Style Stamps. Nicole has yet again designed 2 of the most adorable stamp sets I have come to love. She makes it real easy to get inspired and create, I just need to find the time between my daughters volleyballs games, church events, girl scouting and end of the semester school projects to post my work. Thank goodness for Sundays.....


Now these next holiday stamp sets will be release on Saturday November 29th the day after Black Friday. Along with my projects you have to stop by Nicole's blog and check out the design team projects and see their wonderful work. 

The Stamp set that I used for this card is called "Snow Much Love". I colored it with my copic markers and just added some dots on the girls ear muffs and pants with a white uniball pen. I also used the wood grain embossed cardstock and the Little B cutting die circles to enhance the stamped image. 

For my second design I wanted to make gift tags and just somehow they managed to make it on to a
 Of course you can just used the tag alone and it would make a great piece on christmas gift.  

I didn't use your regular Christmas color combinations, I wanted to show you here how even black can make a classic statement. I also used my glossy accents for the light bulbs on the cute stamp image of a christmas tree.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget I have all the materials listed below. Hope you get inspired and make sure you add My Style Stamps on to your Christmas list this year. Enjoy!

Neat and Tangled Winter Trees

Hello, happy hump day!! Today I am sharing with you two cards I made using my Neat and Tangled Winter Trees stamp set. This set was a part of their October New Release and I've had this set since then. Can you believe I waited this long to work with them!! Now, I have a feeling you will be seeing more of this set, it's just perfect for the holidays! 

Neat and Tangled

For my first card I used my Lil' Inker Stitched dies which I completely adore. I colored in the trees with my copic markers and then masked off the image. Once the image was covered I used my Blending tools and used distress ink. I have all the supplies listed below.

For my second card, I used the rest of the sentiments. I tried to line them up to make them look like a Christmas tree, I'm not to sure if you can tell but I did draw in a tree stump at the bottom and topped it off with a star. In the background I used the same winter trees.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you feel inspired!! Stay warm my friends!
