PenPattern Snowman

I have a bright winter card that I made with PenPattern Snowman to share with you today!

I totally copied this sketch from a card I saw on the I Wanna Build a Memory Blog.

I colored the image with Copic Markers.
The Patterned Paper is Doodle Bug Santa Express.
The buttons are from my stash!

I hope you enjoyed my PenPatterned card today!

I put a prayer inside

Today I have a quick card that I made to showcase another sentiment stamp from Verses Rubber Stamps.

I paired it with one of my older stamps from Eureka Rubber Stamps, Heart Tree.

 The image was colored with Copic Markers.

If you need that perfect sentiment for that perfect someone make sure you swing by Verses Rubber Stamps.  They are sure to have the perfect saying for every occasion!

Love all of them so much!

This is a card I made with The Sizzix Chaming Flip-its Die.
This is the front.   The LOVE die comes with this set!!!

I stamped the flipped side with the Charming Stamps and Dies.

These two cards were made with the Sizzix Charming Stand up Card Die and stamped with Charming Stamps and Dies.

There are a ton more samples of these new stamps and dies in the Stamps of Life Gallery!

Warm Greetings

The new Cornish Heritage Farms Blog challenge is to use a Thomas Kinkade image!
I love my Thomas Kinkade stamps but I am so busy with all my Christmas prep that I really did not have time to sit and carefully color one of these beautiful images. is the card that I made for the challenge with very little coloring!

I used The Night Before Christmas image for this card.
Here's what it looks like when it's closed up and ready to mail.

I used the new Stitch Circle and  Diezyne Half Circle Dies for my card.
 I stamped the image in blue ink and colored the windows with copic markers.

The sentiment is from Script Essential Expressions.

Check out the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog for the links to the rest of the team and to learn more about the challenge!

Happy Sunday!

I hope you are having a great weekend!  I have been busy making toffee and sangria which is what my husband gives out to everyone at work for Christmas gifts.  Over 50 of each!  I am about half-way done but home to finish up today.

I haven't had a lot of time to stamp lately but I have a few cards to share with you that I made a few weeks ago for the release of the new Stamps of Life set, Patterns4heartlockets

It goes with the new Club Set, Heartlockets2stamp.

I used the Sizzix Framelits Royal Stand Up die for this one.

The black diamonds are die cut with a die from the Sizzix Border set.

You can see tons more amazing samples of these sets as well as all of The Stamps of Life stamp sets in Stephanie's gallery!

Winter Themed Birthday Card

It's time for the weekly Crazy4challenges Blog challenge!
This is my last week participating as a DT member for a while....just trying to thin out my work load a little bit.  I'll still play with them from time to time!

This weeks challenge is to make a Winter Themed Birthday Card.

Perfect timing because I needed just such a card for my friend Laura!

I still had this Penpattern Penguin laying on my table from Wednesday's project and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

I embossed a piece of Core'dination Core Essential paper with a Birthday folder from Crafter's Companion.  Then I sanded the paper to bring out the light core color of the cardstock.

I used Rhea's new diezyne Half Oval Die and Pierced Oval dies too!

Here's how it looks when it is closed up and ready to mail.

I colored the Penpattern Penguin with copic markers and I created the "snow" with Stampendous Spoon full of Snow.

The inside sentiment is from the Friendly Phrases Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.
