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!

Christmas Card #5

Hello all! Its been a busy week for me and a very very cold November here in the Chicagoland area. I wish I could say "I am locking myself in my craft room and not coming out till spring!" but I can't. My family would starve and freeze and I would be lonely without them, so it will just have to stay a wish...hehe
 But I did manage to make this dreamy card with my My Style Stamp sets. 

I used the Scripty Christmas Merry Christmas stamp as a background.
 Versafine black onyx ink leaves a crisp and bold image, I love how this turned out.

As for the cute girl image in the Many Blessings set I paper pierced her pj's and teddy and then finished the rest with copic markers. I have all the links to the supplies I used down below. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Keep warm out there and have a great weekend!!

New Release Day

Good Morning to you. Today I am sharing my second and third project for My Style Stamps new release.


It's been a crazy week for me, I've been doing a huge fundraiser for my church and I am done as of Sunday. I can't wait to get back into the grove of cardmaking, it gives me such a stress free day!

Now on to the good stuff, this first card I used my Hero Arts watercolor wheel. I wanted to make it seem like it was a work of art. This image was also made with the Many Blessings Stamp set. One of my favorites to work with so far. 

The new release is now available for sale at My Style Stamps Shop
