Be Merry and simple

Good morning. I am working on a few clean Christmas cards that are easy to make large quantities of. This one is using the new Bottlebrush Holiday stamp set from Power Poppy. The splash of color against the white just makes me smile. My image panel is popped up on dimensionals with a hint of sparkle added to the tree.

Rounded my corners for fun since I have not done that forever. Scrap piece of designer paper with a spellbinders edge. Voila! See how easy this is. Hope you have a wonderful day.

This months Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge is so fun, it is Fill er' Up! This Whipper Snapper called Snowman Magic is going around filling his basket with goodies. ;-)  And yes I have yet another snowman stamp, just wait I have more. hee hee  I order a few new snowman each year as a gift to me as DH says. You can never have too many snowmen I say!

Good morning. This weeks Featured Stamper 402 is non other than Crafty Julia. She is a devoted fan of SCS and I am thrilled we are honoring her gallery. Julia has several House Mouse creations that are darling and i choose this Floral Thank you to case. I kept the same stamp, ruffly like edges, over all colors and pattern paper. Changed the shape, papers and sketch. Congrats Julia and enjoy your week.

Stamped in memento black ink and colored with Copics, then layered on chocolate card stock. Framed base using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles die cut in pink card stock.Wrapped some lace trim and a ribbon twine combo to finish it off. Voila! Hope you get to play along this week.

Simple blank note

Sometimes you just need a note card without a sentiment, well I do. Not sure this turned out quite like I wanted yet it doesn't not seem like I planned if that makes any sense at all! Anyways... I stamped my Azaleas onto white card stock, colored with Copics and fussy cut around the blooms. Added dimensionals to the back as they will pop up off the Nobel Rectangles die cut in white card stock. The base layer is a textured Bazzill pink card stock you see through the die cut. A few of my shimmery Candi dots and voila!  Have a fabulous day.

Christmas Buddy

Oh my word... Are they not cute or what! Good morning! This is another one of the new Whipper Snappers I just got called Snowman harmony. Oh they are so stinkin fun to color! I have them stamped on white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. A simple scored border for the matting and dimensionals to pop the panel up. This designer paper is from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day paper pack. Added a ribbon bow with some sequins (yes I am addicted to these things) and a sentiment circle. Voila! 

The football season is coming to an end for the kids. Sorta bummed as they only had 8 games. However we won't be bored for long as in just a week basketball starts. No rest for the weary they say!  ;-)  They are excited to play basketball this year and all the fun it will bring. Hope you are having a wonderful week!
