{LOTV} New Stamps

Oh, look!  It's Christmas!! : )

I received a few sweet Lili of the Valley stamps in the mail late last week and I was thrilled to be able to color one up for the "Anything Goes" challenge on their blog and SplitCoast.  I colored James Bear (he's retired, sorry!) with my Spectrum Noir markers and used some Kaisercraft Mistletoe paper as the background. 

Thanks for stopping by!

{Simply Stamping} Fall Leaves

Hi all!

Just a clean and simple, well simple-er card today, cuz I'm fighting with the cold that my husband so sweetly shared with me.  I stamped the Oak Leaves onto a piece of ivory cardstock and then onto four different sheets of paper from my  BoBunny Christmas Collage pad.  I cut out different leaves from each sheet of paper and pieced them back together over the main image.  I added a little shadow with my Spectrum Noir Markers, some enamel dots and a little ribbon/cording/tag embellishment, before matting it and attaching it to my card base.

Here's today's Stamp Simply shopping list!

{Gina K Designs} Let God Steer

Did you know that there is a Gina K Release this Thursday?  And that there will be a NEW winter themed Stamp TV kit coming out???  I just love my Stamp TV kits!!

This card is made from a kit that came out this summer called "Here Comes the Sun".  (While the kit as a whole is no longer available, you can still get this wonderful Ship to Shore stamp set and the Here Comes the Sun patterned paper pack at the Gina K Designs store!.)

  After assembling my base with Heavyweight White Cardstock, Black Onyx and a sheet of patterned paper, I cut out a rectangular panel from a piece of watercolor paper and stamped it with a few layers of waves.  My boat was first stamped in Warm Cocoa ink, then stamped in Red Hot and Turquoise Sea ink, so I could cut out the sails and flag and piece the boat back together.  I added a few gulls and the sentiment in black, then I pulled out my eyelets and found some red ones to add a little color and follow the "porthole" look.

Thanks for stopping by!
