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!

Gnomes Gone Wild!

 Hey there everyone, it's been quite awhile since I posted any of my project here on my blog so I thought I better get busy at it!  Today I'm sharing several cards I made while on the Polkadoodles design team. They are gnome-tastic if I say so myself. 😊All the images are digital and I copic colored them. 

Thanks bunches for stopping by my blog and have a lovely day!

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.

Away in A Manger Card!

 Hello my friends, I am in full Christmas card making mode! If you follow me on my Youtube channel, then you know that Christmas cards are my absolute favorite cards to make. So today I'm sharing a  slimline card in non-traditional colors. 

The "Away in a Manger" stamp & co-ordinating die set is by Hello Bluebird Stamps. I used copic markers to color in the images and blended distress oxide inks in various pastel colors to create the background. I love the scripture text which I embossed in detail white powder so it would show up better on the colored background.

 I'm here to share a thank-you card with Autumn colors. This card features the beautiful Polkadoodles "Something To Say" Digi.  In keeping with the theme at Polkadoodles Craft Challenge blog, I created an inky background with distress oxide inks and added a few enamel dots. Sometimes a simple card says it best. 

 Thank you for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate it. Until next time, keep on creating.
