Penny Black, Kecia Waters, Distress Inks, watercoloring, Christmas ornaments
I'm LOVING this brushstrokes stamp by Penny Black.  It is called "Adornments".  It found its way into my shopping card during the Black Friday sales last month.

I put the stamp into my Misti, applied the Distress Inks of Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint and stamped onto Canson Watercolor paper. I added water with a brush to move the color around.  I stamped the tops of the ornaments with Versafine Onyx Black and watercolored with Distress Ink Watered Wood.  Distress Inks Watered Wood and Hickory Smoke proved the shadow.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and is from A Jillian Vance Design.  Using a Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen I brushed lightly over the ornaments for a slight shimmer.

LOVE!!! LOVE!!! LOVE!!! this stamp!  Or do I love the color of these ornaments?  Or both?

Cactus Valentine

Paper Smooches, Kecia Waters, sponging, cactus, die
So, isn't fun to make cards for fun.   That's what this one is.  A for fun card.  I've had this die from Paper Smooches for quite sometime and today I finally got to play with it. 

Simple die-cutting and sponging.  Some details to the cactus were added with Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black onto kraft cardstock. 

A Valentine added to the stash days before Christmas.  That's impressive, no?

Christmas Star

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Christmas Star, gold
There's no coloring on this one (gasp!), but that's okay.  This is a very quick, elegant card that can be made when time is ticking away and you need a fast Christmas card.

I made this card using some specialty gold cardstock and the beautiful Elegant 3D Star die from A Jillian Vance Design.  The sentiment is gold heat embossed and is also from AJVD.

You can read all about this five minute, but elegant, card over on the AJVD blog today.

Corgie and Bess Ugly Sweaters

Mo's Digital Pencil, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, corgi, ugly sweaters, Christmas
This card features the digital image of Corgie and Bess Ugly Sweaters from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I printed the image onto Hammermill Color Copy and colored with Copic markers.  The greeting is from A Jillian Vance Design and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  I placed the image onto a card panel from The Paper Studio.

No Sloopy Dog was replaced due to this card, LOL.  This card was made specifically for a friend.

Back again tomorrow with a quick card from AJVD.  See you then.

Ya Don't Say

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, snowman, birds, winter, Copic markers
This cute digital image is a brand spankin' new one from Sassy Cheryl's.  It is called Ya Don't Say.   Perfect for Christmas, but I tried to show how this image can be extended into winter, hinting even at Valentine's Day on this one.

I printed Ya Don't Say onto Hammermill Color Copy.  I colored it with Copic markers.  I stamped some white snowflakes from Stamps By Judith using Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment ink and heat embossed.  I added a snow dusting with a white gel pen.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design and is white heat embossed onto a black sentiment flag.  The hearts are punched from a heart punch and colored with Copics. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog this weekend.  Hope you have a productive weekend.  I know I sure need one.

Love Is A Four Legged Word

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Santa, Christmas, puppy
Ho! Ho! Ho!  Nothing can be cuter than Santa and a puppy, right?!  This card features the digital image of Love Is a Four Legged Word from Sassy Cheryl's. 

I printed this card onto Hammermill Color Copy.  I masked the image of Santa using a masking pen and made the snow drift by masking with a Post It note.  I sponged some Distress Inks to make a blue sky.  I then removed the masks and colored the image with Copic markers.  The snow is simply dots from a white gel pen.

So I caved on Christmas cards this year.  Time hasn't been on my side.  Walgreen's Photo Cards to the rescue!  But, oh what a cute photo I have.  Seriously failed as a stamper though.

Cute and Clumsy Elves

Hello!  I truly relate to that elf on the left, LOL.

It's the last Tiddly Tuesday of 2017.  We end with the challenge of Be Merry over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  Sure hope you take time from the hustle and bustle of the season and join us.

This card features a new image from the Tiddly Inks bundle Cute and Clumsy Elves.  I printed the adorable image onto Hammermill Color Copy and colored with Copic markers.  You might notice a little shimmer on that ribbon, compliments of a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  The sentiment was stamped with an old Hero Arts wooden stamp using Versafine Onxy Black.

Thanks so much for coming by my blog during this busy time of year.  I appreciate it.

Feets of the Elves

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Christmas, Elf
It is so much fun to use a stamp set in unexpected ways.  This feet image is actually from a Halloween set from AJVD and was created with the intention of these feet belonging to a witch.  But, with a little color change, just take a look at these elves' feet.

You can read all about this card on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.
