Lots of Love for Valentines



I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog with these two cards for my little valentines. I just love the images in this set they are so adorable and fun to color. 
I kept them clean and simple by stamping the images from the Lots of Love set with Blackout ink and colored them using Copic markers. The greeting is from the Love Wordfetti set.

Ski-Sons Greetings



Happy Sunday!
I am still in Phoenix at Creativation so I hope that everything is publishing like it is supposed to.
It's time for the one layer game and the optional twist is polar animals.



For my card I finally inked up this cute set Ski-sons Greetings by My Favorite Things that is now retired :0
I colored it using Copic markers and then created a little snowy mountain background with the Life Changing Blender Brushes.

Frosty



It's time for our first challenge of the new year at Addicted to CAS. Stephanie is our host and she chose the code word frosty and it is so fitting for my location right now, we are dipping down into the low teens for the next 4 days. 

To make my clean and simple card I used a Gina K designs stencil along with the Glitz Glitter Gel or triple G as I call it. 
I also used the amazing Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence Studios to put down some color before I added the triple G.

For my samples I am using the Grace So Amazing set. 

 

The first card I made more of an elegant card by pairing it up with an older set, Singing Praises. I used the floral image at the bottom of the bird at the top and bottom of the panel and then used a stencil and muted color for the background. 


For the second card I went for a bolder look by creating a rainbow background with the Life Changing Blender Brushes. This time I paired up the Grace So Amazing set with the Women of Praise set.

SSS Hey Bestie and A New Baby


It's time for our first challenge of the new year at Addicted to Stamps & More
Our first challenge is coloring and maybe like me you care taking the online coloring class by Kathy Racoosin. Of course I made my card before the class started but if you are taking her class then you can enter your work in our challenge as well

To create my card I used this super adorable set by Simon Says Stamp, Lifting Hearts and the coordinating dies from the Hey Bestie collection.
I stamped it using Fadeout ink by Ink on 3 and colored it using Copic markers 
I added a little clouds in the background with the Layers of Clouds stencil and the Life Changing Blending Brushes.

Difficult Times


I am up on the Technique Junkies design blog with this card featuring the Difficult Time set from the January release and an older background stamp Delicate Floral
You can save 10% on these two and your entire order over at Technique Junkies Stamps by using my code TJ10Ceal. 


To create this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel. I stamped the Delicate Floral background on the panel and colored it using Copic markers. To finish the card I added the greeting from the Difficult Time set stamped using my favorite embossing ink and embossed it in Gold

Team Tuesday


It's Team Tuesday and my turn to be up on the on the My Sweet Petunia blog. I am sharing this card made with a couple of stamp sets by Altenew, Holiday Bow and Festive Poinsettia



To create this card I stamped the flowers and a few of the leaves from the Holiday Bow set using the Original Misti and then cut them out with the coordinating die cuts. I placed the card front inside the Mini Misti and the randomly stamped some more leaves in different colors.  
After I got the background done I popped up the flowers and leaves creating a bouquet and then added a greeting from the Festive Poinsettia set.  

Some would say that this is a Christmas set but I think it can be used all year especially using the bow or you could not use the poinsettias and add in another flower by Altenew, they have gorgeous floral layering stamps that are doable because of the Misti.

This Little Piggy



I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with these two cards. Other than Christmas, Valentines is another holiday I love making cards for and this super cute set, Lots of Love makes it easy. I also used another January release, Love Wordfetti for the greeting. 



I created the same card just using two different ways of coloring. They are both colored with Copic markers but the first one uses a black ink and the second one a fadeout ink that makes no line coloring easy peasy.
