Stampendous Hollies

This is the same basket that I used on the Fall card.  I really enjoy working with Stampendous stamps.  This one has the Chrismas background cling and the basket of hollies.  The red ink is Stampin' up the basket is coloured with copics. And, of course, Spellbinder dies.

Thx for taking the time! :)

Fall CAS card

I am not very good or patient with "CAS" cards.  They seem to take longer to plan out...  But I am happy with the way this one turned out.  

Most of the stamps are Hero Arts with the exception of the basket.

Basket stamp: Stampendous cling Holly Basket
Maple leaves: Artistic Grapes
Smaller leaves and sentiment: Find Joy

Coloured with Copics and added dots of glossy accents on the leaves which you can't really see.

Penny Black Christmas

I have started my holiday cards to be able to fill my orders.  Here are two using Penny Black Stamps.

For the one above, the stamp is "Warm and Cold". I love this snowman :)

This one is from a new set that I just got my hands on :) All stamps are from "A bright tomorrow" set.

Thanks for taking the time and feel free to leave a comment. :)

Penny Black tag challenge

I had fun with these.  Working with Penny Black products is always fun.  These are for the tag weekend challenge.

I used the Christmas Fashion clear set and the sentiment is from Christmas Everyday set. I coloured with Copics and used some ColorBox silver for the sides and some Martha Stewart twine.

For these I used the Adornment stamp from a couple of years ago, I use this one often. The saying is as listed above.

Thanks for taking the time and feel free to leave a comment!

A Merry Little Christmas...

This if for the CAS "embossing challenge" for this week.  I embossed the white card stock with a spellbinder folder and I used a technique that Kristina Werner does from time to time that I love. I used American Crafts Zing silver embossing powder three times on white card stock, I also used VersaMark ink on my stamp. I stamped the image when the embossing powder was still wet and this gives the "reverse" embossing image. The sentiment is from American Crafts.

Thanks for taking the time and feel free to leave a comment!
