{Lili of the Valley} Coloring Again!


I've been coloring again!  This time I inked up James and his snowman.  I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers on Gina K's Heavy Base Weight White cardstock.  It colors SO beautifully!  I'm entering this in LOTV's Anything Goes challenge.

{Stamp Simply} Pink Smiles

Hello!  It's Stamp Simply day on my blog!  We have gone pink this week in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, so I have a fun pink card to share with a few more goodies on it than my usual fairly clean and classic style...


I used the fun Bokeh Dots Background stamp to make my background.  I first stamped it in Versamark ink onto my watercolor paper panel.  Then I clear embossed it and applied a wash of two or three different shades of pink using my distress markers and water.  I cut out my label with the Vintage Tags die and sponged it while it was still in the die.  I added some pretty lace and fun pompoms and a little of my favorite - dotted sheer ribbon.  The flowers are actually 3D stickers and I just dressed them up a little by adding a rhinestone to the center of each.  

Here's my supply list...

Today we get to showcase my FAVORITE part of the new release... the new Stamp TV Kit!!!



For my card today I stamped the sweet little skating fox on some heavy baseweight white cardstock and colored him with Spectrum Noir markers.  I used some Spellbinders Large Circle, Petite Scalloped Circle and Regular Scalloped Circle dies to make mats from White and Red Hot Cardstock.  I stamped a pretty border from last year's Season's Greetings Stamp TV Kit and cut it out to lay alongside a strip of Winter Cheer patterned paper from the kit.  I popped up my focal image, stamped a greeting, and added a jingle bell to my fox's collar with a glue dot as an extra treat.

Be sure you visit all the Illustrators and Design Team for more inspiration using the kit!  Here's the list!!

Here's my card with the cardinal...


and a close up of the coloring....


I colored my bird with Spectrum Noir markers, then cut it out using a Square die.  I handpierced the edges after I sponged it.  I used liquid pearls to add some snow and attached the focal image and sentiment flag to my background with pop dots.  The bg paper is Kaisercraft Mistletoe, and the gorgeous red ribbon is from the new Winter Cheer Stamp TV kit.

Here's another card made with this set, if you missed the release party!

{TCP Tuesday 277} Nature's Hello


TCP Tuesday was an inspiration challenge this time around, and since I'm not big on Halloween, I took the colors from the photo and made a sweet penguin card instead. : )  I used stamps from both Strange and Wonderful and Nature's Hello.
