Picking out the "perfect" Christmas Tree!

 Hey friends, I am back today sharing another Christmas card. For my card I used the versatile "Mountains Stencil" and the "Holiday Home Stamp Set" by Newton's Nook Designs.  I first used the stencil and inked it up with grey ink, then used texture paste on the mountain peaks. After the texture paste was dry I covered the mountains before laying down more ink for the sky. Using the bottom part of the mountain stencil I used a light blue ink to create snowdrifts, this was an important step as this brings continuity to the scene & grounds the stamped images so they aren't just floating on the card.  I added foam adhesive to the backs of the stamps images and adhered them to the card, I finished the card by adding glitter glue to the mountain peaks, the images and added some snowflakes in the night sky with a white gel pen. I hope you like how my slimline card turned out, I sure had fun making it!

You can find the stamps and stencils I used at Newton's Nook Designs online!

Tis the Season to be Freezin'❄️☃️

 Hi there everyone, sorry it's been so long since sharing any of my projects with you. Well today I have some exciting news, I've been asked to be a guest designer for Newton's Nook Designs! I am seriously over the moon happy about this as they have the sweetest stamps, dies and stencils, so many fun goodies to create with. 

I will be sharing cards and projects each Monday during the month of November featuring their delightful products! So now without further chatting on my part here's my first card! 


I created the background by inking up the Snowflake Stencil with oxide inks. I then put versamark ink on each snowflake followed by clear embossing powder, and once the powder was melted withmy heat gun the snowflakes really came to life with the glossy finish. I set some tiny gems on the center of a few of the flakes. 

 I used copic makers to color up the adorable "Frosty Folks" stamp set making sure to add some grey ink to the edges of the snow peeps to give the impression of depth on their snowy bodies. The sentiment is from the stamp set and I used some punches from my stash to cut it out layering each piece. The sentiment and the snow peeps are all popped up with dimensional foam. 

These Newton's Nook products were a joy to use. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Embellished Easel Card

 When I want to make a large, embellished card the answer for me is to create an easel card.  I choose an easel card as you can make it extra large and by using heavy weighted cardstock it can easily hold the weight of the embellishments. 

The easel card I'm sharing today is one I made over the weekend and features a Magnolia stamp called "A Touch of Love" Tilda. I copic colored the image and adhered it to black mat and popped it up for dimension. I added some beautiful flowers, bling, die cuts and chipboard pieces to create a pretty backdrop for the stamped image.  

When you open the card the chipboard sentiment acts as a stopper to keep the card from folding onto itself. 

I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you enjoyed this card, I sure enjoyed creating it!

Cozy Christmas Scene Card

I'm sharing a fun and cozy Christmas scene card made with stamps from Stacey Yacula and Purple Onion Designs. The stamps are from the "Twas the Night Before Christmas" release that I purchased last year but didn't get around to using until now. I don't know what I was waiting for because these stamps are so adorable and fun to color! 

Each image is colored with copic sketch markers, and then fussy cut. Papers from Honey Bee Stamps "Fresh Brewed" 6x6 pad were perfect for creating "wood" flooring and a shiplap wall. I love how this sweet scene turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog, I really appreciate it! 

Christmas Wishes Card

I made a slimcard using the Christmas Wishes Craft Stencil which is filled with such fun Christmas images and sentiments! I sponged on distress oxide inks to make an ombre effect, starting with the lightest color of blue at the bottom working my way up with the darkest shade at the top. There is no backing paper, the ink was applied directly to the card base. I also added a few gems and sequins to finish off the card.
