Winter Wishes


This stamp set of 7 images, WINTER WISHES, is lovely and nostalgic!


Do you remember sledding on these wooden sleds??



I stamped the sled in Early Espresso ink and then used my AquaPainter filled with water to "bleed" the brown ink and color the wood. QUICK & EASY!! The card base is Mossy Meadow color.

Festive Fireplace Bundle


What fun to create your own fireplace scene! Can you hear the fire crackle??


Here you can see I die cut the stockings and mantle greenery. I ALSO die cut the brick using the Hearth & Home Thinlits which is a window frame - I snipped out the window panes to modify the window into a fireplace.

And the finished card and envelope - a traditional Christmas theme!

Cup of Cheer


YUM! Nothing like a cup of hot chocolate during a blizzard! I remember those days fondly! That's why this stamp image appeals to me.


I stamped the cup in Basic Grey ink. Then I stamped it again in Real Red ink and cut it out - cutting off the steam and back rim of cup. Using dimensionals I mounted the cup over the grey image, lining up the rim.


Love these sweet papers called

Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack 6X6".

Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies


Peek out the window! Just think of all the possibilities for scenes! I was fiddling with my brayer and thought these deep colors looked like the last moment before nightfall!  The silhouetted birds and branches are from the popular Serene Silhouettes Stamp Set.


Simple and sweet this would be appropriate for many occasional!


This similar card shows the window frame turned sideways with the trim cut off. This is the same piece of brayered background as the card above.


IT's FUN peeking out the window!!

Vintage Leaves Bundle


Let's make some colorful Autumn leaves with the awesome Vintage Leaves Bundle! You will need the following:

    *Watercolor Paper

    *3 Classic Ink Pads: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry

    *Aqua Painter filled with water

Next, lightly wet the watercolor paper and apply areas of color - you can even be a little messy about it! I chose to blend the colors into each other. LET DRY completely, then:

    *Stamp leaf images onto dry Watercolor Paper using Archival Black Ink

    *Die Cut images with the coordinating Leaflets Framelits Dies

Now you have a "pile of leaves to play in!" I mean "with!" LOL



I love all the RANDOM shading that results!!


SO FUN!! I double-matted using Basic Black to accent those black veins in all the leaves! Now look inside- 102_5408
