Non-traditional Christmas


Morning friends, I have a Non-traditional Christmas card for you today using Christmas Poinsettia from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I stamped with Versamark onto navy paper and embossed with silver embossing powder and heat set it.  The paper is from The Paper Studios.  I was not sure I like the colors but it is growing on me.  Christmas Poinsettia is the STAMP OF THE MONTH, free with $75 purchase.

Party Friends

I have colored up this cute little stamp before from Party Friends by Penny Black but never liked how it looked so this set just got put up in the bin with the rest of my Penny Black Stamps.   Today I saw Ellie's card made with this stamp and got inspired.  I cased her card changing a couple things and though it is not as nice as hers felt good enough to turn it into a card.  I colored with copics and the papers are from Reverse Confetti.

No Prob-Llama!

Ha, Ha... I love this new stamp set called Llama Love from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I went in JoAnn Fabrics yesterday to get a couple sheets of paper for a project I needed to get in the mail.  Well.... I found this adorable pad of designer paper called NoProb-Llama and I just had to have it.  Lucky for me the pads are buy one get one free this week and, and I had a coupon for 20% off your order (my first senior discount- ACK!). At least the girl at the checkout questioned my age so I felt better!   I colored with watercolors and well the paper is from DCWV.  Remember if you spend $75 you get the stamp of the month for free and this month's is a beautiful set for fall- see picture below.

Christmas Wishes

I know, it's early but is it ever really to early to be thinking about Christmas Cards?  I made a quick and easy card today using Peace of God from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, this is not a Christmas set but thought this cute Tit-mouse would look adorable on a Christmas Card.  I used one of the sentiments from We Three Kings.  I colored with copics, added stickles to the berries for some sparkle and the paper is from MFT.
