Hello Sweet friends, have you been taking advantage of our month long Birthday Specials? I sure hope so! This week Korin is offering 11% off all Creative Worship Stamps and All Digital Products... Since Korin is offering a discount off of digitals I decided to print off some of my favorite images and make a few cards.
This first card is using this adorable penguin image called Pippin's Christmas Lights
. I colored with Copics and the paper is from The Paper Studios.
This next card is using one of the very first Cocoa images called Cocoa's Stocking
. I colored with Copics and this paper is also from the Paper Studios.
Now this one is a go to image for me if I need a quick Birthday Card, Celebrate
is so fun and makes a great Birthday card. I colored with Copics and the paper is from Pink Paislee.
Last but not least my absolute favorite. Flowers in Bloom
is such a beautiful Digi set... I colored it up with copics, did some distressing and I used a retired stamp (music notes) but you could use Texture Tiles 1
for the same results. I added the sentiment from Cocoa Sends Love
. Remember that if you spend $60 this month you can pick from one of 4 stamp of the month stamps- pictured below.
Hello friends! Today I have two cards to share using some Sweet ‘n Sassy
stamps from the November birthday release
. SNSS has TWO special throwback sets this month. Here I used Cocoa's Cups
. They are also celebrating their 11th anniversary with various weekly specials. This week you can save 11% on the Creative Worship and digital products.
My first card has an open middle in the card front with my image panel bridging the top and bottom sections and holding the bottom in place. On this card I also used the Texture Tiles 4
set to create the plaid backgrounds.
The coffee cup was paper pieced with some coordinating paper scraps from my stash.
A few flakes, gemstones, and enamel dots finish it off. This is such a fun card design!
I placed some various shapes of sequins inside.
Have a great day!
I love that we have brought back some of my favorite snowmen in this throwback set Crazy about Snowmen. This is the perfect set for me because I am crazy for anything snow related. I have a 9ft tree dedicated to snow/snowmen.
I have a couple samples for you today using this set. The first one uses the smiling snowmen from the set which is my absolute favorite all time snowman. I created a snowy night sky behind him by blending some Chipped Sapphire and Broken China, I stamped the star in Versamark ink and embossed it in white, I also added a few more stars by using a white gel pen. The greeting is from the original set which is retired.
November is our birthday month and we turned 11 years old, can you believe it?? Starting today we have another special for you this week.
My second card uses another cute snowman from the Crazy about Snowmen set. For this card I stamped the snowman and then colored him using Copic markers. To create the background I blended some Gina K inks and a stencil
As part of the celebration, there are presents of course - for you!! There are different ones every week and this week it is FREE US Shipping with the code "HAPPY11FREESHIP"
I bought this mug die cut this summer and have just been waiting for the inspiration to use it - this stamp set was just what I needed! I decided to decorate my mug with a winter scene by stamping my snowman and making him a bit taller. I wanted to color it with color pencils because they are so great on dark colored paper. I was not disappointed. My inspiration projects today are a little surprise for my sister. She is a big time scrapbooker and my favorite person to create for. When I send her a card she thanks me for the "embellishment" and adds it to a page. Soooo today I made her an actual embellishment using a great little clear stamp set from 2013 called Snowman Soup.
I created a little journaling card to go into it so she can journal the page and tuck it into the mug. I decorated the bottom corner with one of the smaller snowmen in the set.
I was having so much fun, I also created a little ATCoin thinking she could pop it somewhere too. I colored this up with Copics - you can see the difference in vibrancy when it is beside the color pencil snowman. I really like them both in different ways!
Here is the whole set - I think she is going to love it!
I hope you are inspired today to just create something and have fun doing it. Try different mediums and see what you like best.
Thanks for stopping by and joining the celebration!Lyn
