Snow Much Fun!


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with these cards featuring one of our November release sets.
Our November release was full of super cute snowmen/snow sets, we did a blog hop using them and you can find it HERE and gets lots of inspiration. 

For my cards I used the Snow Much Fun set. The first card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I paired it up with the Thrill of Hope set by using the trees.
The second card I started with a top folding card base and a white panel as well and then used the LCBB to create the hills and a stencil to create the snow. The greeting is from the Deck The Halls set.

Christmas Lights



I am up on the Technique Junkies Design blog with this card for our 30 days of Christmas event. 


During our event you can save 20% off on the Christmas category from now until November 22nd and if you use my coupon code TJ10Ceal you will save 10% on top of that.  



To create my card I started with a white top folding card base and a panel of bristol card stock. I stamped the Christmas Lights with embossing ink and then embossed it with white powder.  Next I colored the lights using Copic markers and placed Crystalline drops over each one, after they were dry I created the background so that they would resist the ink.

Be Creative!


 It's release day at Picket Fence Studios and yes it's another fabulous oe indeed. 

This month's release is all about creativity and we are all creative right? So that means you need this entire release :)
Both my cards were super simple to make, I started out with a top folding horizontal card base  and the new Polka Dot stencil. I used the Life Changing Blender Brushes and some Gina K ink to create the background. 
I stamped the water color palette from the I Work for Watercolor using Fadeout ink and then colored it using the new Altier inks by Ink on 3. This shows how many different colors you can get from mixing them together.

My Second card uses the same stamp set, I Work for Watercolor but this time I used Copic markers to color it.

I also wanted to take a minute and thank each of you that supports my work by using a link I have provided to purchase items.

Oh Happy Day


I am up on the Joy Clair blog today with this card. All this month we are collaborating with Image products When I saw the Neon Inks I just had to have them to use them with the Wish Big stamp set. I love this set, it makes such a cheerful happy card I know it's a springy card but ya'll it is cold today and tonight is going to be in single digits so I needed to create a card that would feel warm lol.


To Create this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel. I stamped the image with watermark ink and embossed it wit white powder. I used some neon blue ink and the Layers of Clouds stencil by Picket Fence Studios for the sky. For the grass I blended some green ink, both from the Radiant Cool ink set. For the flowers I used both sets of ink the warm and the cool. To finish the card I added the greeting and a peel off strip along the side.

Merry & Bright



It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More and this week anything goes so no excuses :)



I have been in  in full swing on with the holidays. I hosted two tables at seperate ladies holiday events and it has gotten me in the holiday spirit. Which gave me the bug to start making Holiday cards so this challenge was perfect. 

To create this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel cut down with a postage stamp die. I stamped BFF Elise and colored her using Copic markers and then cut her out with the Coordinating Die.  The greeting is the Christmas Wishes stamp.
